The Book of Genesis (Prologue): Day 6 (Part 2)

We are still on the Sixth Day of creation, and we come now to the apex of God’s
creative works. God had now completed the creation of all the land creatures – and
yet there was still one more being, one for whom all the others had been made, that
was still outstanding. On Day 6 God created the first human beings, and He made them
a man and a woman, and then He crowned them as rulers over all the other creatures
that He had already made.

From the very dust of the earth, God made all the living creatures that move along the
ground. And the Word of the Lord repeats a phrase we have already encountered on
day 5, for we are told that they were brought forth “according to their kinds” (v24-25) and
within those kinds, they were subdivided into many subcategories.

On the fifth day, God created the sea creatures and the flying
creatures of the skies, and this corresponds to some extent to the creation of the waters
and the formation of the expanse on the second day. The creation of land animals and
humans on the sixth day accords with that of the dry land and its productivity on the
third day. Amazing to see the pattern God instituted in the events of creation.

A journey through the Created Order teaches us that there was darkness and then there
was light. It teaches us that there was evening and then there was morning. Thus far
three nights and three days have passed and we find ourselves now in the Fourth Day
of Creation. On the first day, God made the light and He separated the light from the
darkness. The light God made on the first day is very distinct from the light He creates on
day 4.

We come now to day three and
we will see that God continues to give form to the world by the process of differentiation
whilst the emphasis begins to shift to the theme of fullness. God by His command
progresses the act of creation of the second day and does further work to the waters
which He separated on day 2. All this in preparation for man, who will be the crown of
His creation, to work on the earth as God’s representative for the glory of God. On day
3 God performs an illustrious miracle by gathering the waters on the earth into one place
and creating a dry place upon which man could habitat.

Today we will see that God
continues His work of creating and separating and naming. For God said, “Let there be an
expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the
expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the
expanse.” (Gen 1:6-7).

Without form, void and utterly dark – such was the original condition of the created
earth. The earth was a mass of fluid, utterly incapable of sustaining human life. And as
the very first acts of creation, the Spirit of God flutters over the face of the deep and
vibrates with Divine Energy to life all of creation, bringing order and structure to what
was at first chaos. This activity of God changed all that follows thereafter.
