Creation Day 5-Genesis 1:20-23 = KINGDOM PURPOSE
God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky”.
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which water teems and moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. God saw that it was good.
God blessed them and said “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on earth”.
There was evening, and there was morning, the fifth day.
SPIRITUAL MEANING OF CREATURES OF THE SEA AND FLYING BIRDS-CREATION DAY 5
- The water teemed with living creatures is three fold. The spirits of unrighteousness-earthly people, spirits of the underworld and then what you see physically.
- Birds flying above the earth are the angels of earth that live in our midst for various spiritual services. They also represent leaders. Both righteous and unrighteous.
- Fish in the sea are people of the world who also have various spiritual services some are righteous others unrighteous.
- God blessing them we have already discussed before. According to His will and purpose, both the wicked and righteous are all working together for good.
DETAILED INTERPRETATION OF THE CREATION STORY DAY 5
In the book of Mathew 13:32 Jesus Christ told the parable of the Mustard seed. He said, “although it is the smallest of all seeds, yet it grows into the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches“.
For this case, the seed demonstrates the word of God, which when sown in the heart with Faith and the willingness to obey what you hear, it will lead to a deeper level of understanding, which in turn will cause spiritual development.
As you well know development of any sense means an improvement of the way you perform or behave.
When you are fully grown in Faith and are pleasing God by following His instructions, you become like a fruitful tree and will always be in the company of angels who will attend to you.
That’s what He meant when He said “it grows into the largest of garden and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches”.
Another example to show you that birds are signs of angels of service on earth, is that of Elijah my favourite prophet. I actually amplified the scripture concerning this before here but I don’t mind doing it again.
Together, they accused people falsely and basically practiced witchcraft. They had an appetite for control and power and wanted it by hook or crook. So Elijah was their next target and God hid Him.
Elijah was told, “leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there“.
So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread in the evening, and he drank from the brook“.
As I explained earlier, drinking from the brook was the filling of the Holy Spirit.
The ravens directed to supply food were the angels of God.
The food is the word of God, meat is deeper revelations which strengthened His faith and bread is the grace of God.
So Elijah, was attended to by angels of God that came as ravens which is to show you when God is talking about birds, spiritually He implies angels.
One last example is Revelations 19:17-18 as told by John. “Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out in a loud voice to all the birds flying overhead
“Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and commanders and mighty men, of horses and riders, of all men slave and free, small and great“.
The birds flying overhead, are angels who will perform a terrible and strange duty to the people you see listed above.
I did mention too that birds figuratively illustrate leaders. In Isaiah 46:11 Jesus Christ says through His servant, “Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it”.
Since we are focussing on today, the “bird of prey from the east” will be a ruthless leader that is going to be used as a chastening tool. He will be used to persecute the evil doers within the church who practice craftiness. It will be very bad and unmatched.
I keep warning you guys. If you are doing bad things, especially you practitioners of magic, witchcraft, sorcery and idolatry, this is the best time to drop your filthy weapons. It is a very good time to drop all the rubbish and straighten the pathway.
You know, think of it this way. When a police is right around the corner in the police car with flashing lights, the siren, a gun ready to shoot and you are in your car drunk driving with many other illegal things. What is the best thing to do? To keep racing with your car against the police or to stop the car, get out, put your hands up and submit to authority? What happens when you refuse to comply with the police?
Mathew 13:47–Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered fish of every kind:
The word of God cast upon the hearts of men who hear, is like a dragnet that is cast to the sea-people in the world. It gathers, through the word, people of different kinds to the Father.
Fish is the people and not regular fish.
Jeremiah 16:16–“Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen,” declares the LORD, “and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks”.
The fishermen in this case are the appointed servants of God who will gather the people-fish, back to the Lord.
Mathew 13:48-50– “and when the dragnet was filled, they drew it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good fish into containers, but the bad they threw away.
So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.
Mathew 17:27–“However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me.”
God has called us to respect authority for He is the one who has ordained them. He through Paul, encouraged us not to be afraid of them provided that we keep from evil.
Authority, is appointed according to the people’s hearts and the times. When authority is spoken of, we are not talking about the people who force themselves into power. We speak of TRUE SERVANTS called and chosen by God.
That being said, when Jesus Christ asked His disciple to go to the sea and throw in a hook, He was asking the disciple to bring someone from the world to Him through His word. We have said the sea is the world and the first fish that came up was the person that was led to Jesus Christ.
The opening of the mouth is the person confessing to be a part of the body of Christ and the shekel found was the reward of the labourer. This reward, a true labourer knows it’s for distributing to the needy as well as paying taxes to the government who are also at work for God. The servant pays it on behalf of God to keep the reputation up to par for both the Kingdom and the servant.
So, if a government offers not to tax the church that is absolutely fabulous. Otherwise, there should never be a case of the church refusing to pay taxes to the government claiming to be exempt.
That thought is not of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth who purposely allowed us to hear Him say “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar”. He spoke not what He did because He was being fancy. Everything He said was addressing key issues and occurred for us to take note and apply. Romans 12:7-“render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor”.
Everything He did was a prophetic demonstration of what needs to be done. The church through the offerings must pay their taxes and ensure the needy do not lack their basic needs.
In the miracle of feeding the 5000 people with two fish and five loaves. I explained to you earlier, Jesus Christ prophetically showed us what two servants and the five gifts of the Holy Spirit can accomplish as long as He is involved.
When Jesus Christ appeared to His disciples by the Sea of Tiberias in John 21:6 He told them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it there, and they were unable to haul it in because of the great number of fish.
This showed us that when we depend upon the strength of the Lord “the right hand of the father”, He will bring the people that need to receive the salvation of the Lord. Otherwise, the disciples tried to catch fish all day but they caught none until they were asked to cast it at the right side of the boat. The boat represents the mission of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Otherwise, fish in the scriptures is not literal but a spiritual implication of people.
The foundation of the purpose of people and angels in the world was laid on the fifth day. After the foundation was laid God saw it was good and blessed it to multiply.
As good people multiply, also bad people multiply and all of them have the blessing of God. I told you even bad people have been created by God to do bad jobs on earth. These bad jobs are dependent upon various spiritual matters.
Think of it like this… to box in a boxing ring, you need a sparring partner. If you are a good boxer, boxing with the most fierce boxer will make you better. If you are a bad boxer, boxing with the most fierce boxer will finish you.
So basically, according to the state of your heart, so shall your experience with God and His creation be. If you have a good heart and God is behind you, you will experience good people and the angels will be good to you.
If you are full of wickedness, you will be used to do the dirty business on this planet and after you are done, unless you repent, you will be destroyed. How it works is that the bad you do that will be of benefit later on contaminates you to death. You kill yourself through your wickedness.
If you don’t kill yourself, you can be given to the bad fishes of the sea for food or to the birds of prey in the air. Now that you understand what is said.
The dirty business you do will work against you and it will benefit others in the grand scheme of things. The pharisees and sadducees did the dirty business of crucifying Jesus Christ. In the grand scheme of things, their persecution benefited the whole world. Also, the one they killed, not only is He in our midst today, still a Champion, but He will be even forever more.
On the other hand, after their persecution, they were condemned to death because they were wicked religious folks. How they behaved, the foundation of it was laid on the fifth day. Their followers were the bad fish of the sea. The followers of the disciples were the good fish of the sea.
When your heart is right with God and He is pleased with you,He gives His angels charge concerning you. It will be that you walk and live around strange body guards. Sometimes in the form of birds and sometimes where you go you find peculiar kindness waiting for you in the form of strangers.
As I have explained in every article, all that happens today between God and us people, He set it up from the beginning of time.
Isaiah 46:10-I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’
Proverbs 16:4-The LORD has made everything for His purpose— even the wicked for the day of disaster.
Isaiah 45:7-I form light and create darkness; I bring prosperity and create calamity. I, the LORD, do all these things.
Day 4=Kingdom Assignment
Day 5=Kingdom Purpose
Next up, we will look at day 6.
Examine your heart carefully during these times and see where you stand. If you are on the side of wickedness I am afraid this is a very dangerous time to engage in foolishness.
Seek God’s guidance, repent of your evil ways and the Lord will cast you upon the right dragnet, that you may be fished out of the sea.
Otherwise in the face of wickedness, just like you see birds of prey above the sea diving in and out with fish in their mouths for consumption, so shall it be now that the ocean waves are rising and the turbulence is gradually increasing.
You know, there are certain seasons in fact, where the sea just casts fish upon the shore. Some dead and some alive both to be eaten by birds of prey.
If you are doing good and by that I mean are keeping the faith and obeying the commandments, you don’t have to worry. Stay on course with fervent prayer and advance in your diet for spiritual fitness.
Be not on milk at this time but on meat. Before the final competition if you speak with the best athletes, they will tell you a great amount of time is invested in the kitchen with good diet. That’s where they build their muscles to finish the competition strong and win.
In the face of great persecution Elijah was hidden and fed meat and bread which strengthened Him before that great demonstration of faith where the 450 prophets were put to shame.
Also just to kindly warn you, God doesn’t want to deal with malnourished athletes who have the choicest food at their disposal. It’s almost like you have no business having weak muscles when there is everything you need to build muscles.
You cannot go into the boxing match and fail when you have the best boxer as your trainer. The penalty of those who refuse to have some meat and build muscle in preparation for the competition that awaits, will be as told from before in Isaiah 28:9-13:
“Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message?
To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast? For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that, a little here, a little there”.
“Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues, God will speak to this people, to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest” and, “This is the place of repose”—but they would not listen”.
“So then, the word of the Lord to them will become: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there—so that as they go they will fall backward; they will be injured and snared and captured“.
Avoid ignorance at all cost and eat your meat while it is available to you and before the boxing match that is upcoming. Otherwise the boxing trainer is saying if you want weak muscles He will help you have them weak as possible so that it will be TKO in round 1. God forbid!
For the true servants, cast your nets on the right side of the boat and always remember to serve the master fisherman with the fish you already have. So that in His thanksgiving, it can be for you as it was for the disciples, during the feeding of 5000 and 4000.
To go fishing on your own without the master fisherman at this time of pollution especially in the river nile, is to catch contaminated fish that might not be edible for you and the people.
Also, it will be detestable to serve the master polluted fish don’t you think? You understand this I hope? Fish under the guidance and wisdom of the master fisherman, lest you get fish poisoning and a penalty for serving the King bad fish.
Nobody can compare to the Glory of God’s story telling ability. The way He can say such profound things in silence using simple matters is incredible. I salute! Hats off to the real “His excellency”.
See you in the next article.
