Each week we will discuss a day in the creation of
Creation Day 1 (Genesis 1:1-5)
God created the heavens and the earth. “The heavens” refers to everything
beyond the earth, outer space. The earth is made but not formed in any
specific way, although water is present. God then speaks light into
existence. He then separates the light from the dark and names the light
“day” and the dark “night.” This creative work occurs from evening until
morning – one day.
Creation Day 2 (Genesis 1:6-8)
God creates the sky. The sky forms a barrier between water upon the surface
and the moisture in the air. At this point earth would have an atmosphere.
This creative work occurs in one day.
Creation Day 3 (Genesis 1:9-13)
God creates dry land. Continents and islands are above the water. The large
bodies of water are named “seas” and the ground is named “land.” God
declares that all this is good.
God creates all plant life both large and small. He creates this life to be
self-sustaining; plants have the ability to reproduce. The plants were
created in great diversity (many “kinds”). The earth was green and teeming
with plant life. God declares that this work is also good. This creative
work takes one day.
Creation Day 4 (Genesis 1:14-19)
God creates all the stars and heavenly bodies. The movement of these will
help man track time. Two great heavenly bodies are made in relation to the
earth. The first is the sun which is the primary source of light and the
moon which reflects the light of the sun. The movement of these bodies will
distinguish day from night. This work is also declared to be good by God.
This creative work takes one day.
Creation Day 5 (Genesis 1:20-23)
God creates all life that lives in the water. Any life of any kind that
lives in the water is made at this point. God also makes all the birds. The
language allows that this may be the time God made flying insects as well
(or, if not, they were made on day six). All of these creatures are made
with the ability to perpetuate their species by reproduction. The creatures
made on Day 5 are the first creatures blessed by God. God declares this work
good, and it occurs in one day.
Creation Day 6 (Genesis 1:24-31)
God creates all the creatures that live on dry land. This includes every
type of creature not included on previous days and man. God declares this
God then takes counsel with Himself, “God said, ‘Let us make man in our
image, in our likeness’” (Genesis
1:26). This is not an explicit revelation of the trinity but is part of
the foundation for such, as God reveals an “us” within the Godhead. God
makes man, and man is made in the
image of God
(men and women both bear this image) and is special above all other
creatures. To emphasize this, God places man in authority over the earth and
over all the other creatures. God blesses man and commands him to reproduce,
fill the earth and subdue it (bring it under the rightful stewardship of man
as authorized by God). God announces that man and all other creatures are to
eat plants alone. God will not rescind this dietary restriction until
God’s creative work is complete at the end of the sixth day. The entire
universe in all its beauty and perfection was fully formed in six literal,
consecutive, 24-hour days. At the completion of His creation, God announces
that it is very good.
Creation Day 7 (Genesis 2:1-3)
God rests. This in no way indicates He was weary from His creative efforts,
but denotes that the creation is complete. Further, God is establishing a
pattern of one day in seven to rest. The keeping of this day will eventually
be a distinguishing trait of the God’s chosen people (Exodus
