Creation (Fish, Birds And Animals)

There is no such thing as bigness or smallness to a God who is infinite. Only a God who is infinite could have worked on such a majestic scale as we see in the skies and on a microscopic scale as we see in the seas. Scientist have classified millions of different species of anima … More

Creatures

There are various false theories concerning the formation of the world. The most common are:

1. Continuous evolution - Says the universe has no beginning or end. They believe there is a continuous creation of “new” matter by way of hydrogen atoms. The big problem is there is no example of anything now being created! This is of course false.

2.  Atheistic evolution -  They believe through chance and accidental happenings is how our perfectly ordered universe came into existence. This is false.

3.  Theistic evolution - Says God was in creation, He just took millions and millions of years to evolve everything to it’s present state. Sometimes referred to as the day/age theory. False!!

On the fifth day God created every living creature which means He made every creature out of nothing. He saw the world was ready for some living creatures, the seas were ready for fish and the trees and grass was ready to be homes for the birds. God made all kinds of fish and water animals and every kind of bird and fowl (vv.20-23). 

Again He brought them forth according to His plan. The waters did not produce the marine life but at God’s command the existing waters suddenly were filled with swimming creatures. All types of marine creatures and the winged fowl were brought forth abundantly after his kind. God blessed the water creatures and fowl of the air and said for them to be fruitful and multiply and fill the seas and  let the fowl multiply in the earth. God made every type of wild animal, every type of domestic animal, and every type of creature that crawls on the ground. God saw that they were good (vv. 24-25)..

Application

How wonderful that God can make new creatures out of us too! (II Cor 5:17). I need to allow Him to change me to be after His image. I’m to fit into His plans and not try to make Him fit into mine!!

Genesis 1:20-25 (English Standard Version)

And God said, "Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens." So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth." And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds--livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds." And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
