Genesis 1:20-23    Day Five of Creation

20 Then God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens." 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth." 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.    NKJV


With the life sustaining systems in place, Creator God is now ready to begin creating living and moving creatures.

Y      First is all the living creatures in the waters, including the dinosaurs and dragons.

Y      Second all the birds of the air from the smallest to the greatest.

Y      Again God declared His work of creation as “Good.”

Y       This is the first time God pronounces a Blessing on His creation as He commands reproduction to fill the earth and seas with their individual kinds. [v.22]

Y      And again Elohiym wanted us to distinguish between the long time expanse often applied to the word day and a single turn of the earth by using the term “evening and morning” for clarifying and defining the time expanse actually used.
