Msg#1605 Thursday Day Five

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice


Thursday the fifth day of creation sees the first addition of life to God's universe. This is huge, but not more-so than previous days in God's creation. Abundant life in the waters is barely comprehensible; the variety and divergence of life forms have not been categorized to this day. “And fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven” (Gen 1:20b), is equally overwhelming in variety. In this creation of life consider two things very carefully: diet and reproduction. Before Adam sinned there was no death in God's creation. “As by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin” (Rom 5:12a). With no death, robins ate no worms, sharks ate no fish. Man brought about two curses on the world and it is likely that living creatures were not eaten until God spoke Genesis 9:3 after the second one. Fish and fowl were created quite different from what we see now. Secondly these creatures were fruitful and multiplied “after their kind.” As if to slap the atheistic evolutionist's theory with folly he emphasizes that procreation is only “after his kind.” And this emphasis is captured in a fifth grade reading level repeatedly in God's accounting. When one says “God bless you,” they are asking God to do for you what you cannot do for yourself. When David says, “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name” (Psalm 103:1), he is asking his soul to do something for God that God cannot do for himself (that is profound). When God blesses creatures with procreation, it is something that they cannot naturally do by themselves. Procreation is, and forever will be, a miracle of God: after their kind.
