Creation Story Day 6-Genesis 1:24-31= Kingdom Calling and Choosing
God said, Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds:
- Creatures that move along the ground
- Wild animals each to its kind
And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that:
- They may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky
- Over the livestock and all the wild animals
- Over all the creatures that move along the ground
So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.
God blessed them and said to them:
Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.
Then God said:
I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground––everything that has the breath of life in it––I give every green plant for food. And it was so.
God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.
There was evening, and there was morning, the sixth day.
CREATION STORY DAY 6 SPIRITUAL MEANING OF ANIMALS BESIDES MAN
Livestock, spiritually represents people. For example:
Cattle spiritually implies rulers and authorities. If it is golden, such as “a golden bull”, an idol
Goats spiritually implies children of unrighteousness
Sheep spiritually implies children of righteousness
Creatures that move along the ground spiritually represents dominions. There are of darkness and obviously of light. Both are usually purposed for destruction.
Wild animals represent spiritual principalities and usually world rulers and authorities.
After they were made, both man and woman were made.In the LIKENESS and IMAGE of God. Further details concerning this will be explained when we get to the sabbath day/seventh day.
Let us now unfold in the next section for deeper understanding. Enjoy the reading.
You now know that the creation story is not in literal sense, though literal elements have been used to tell a spiritual story.
You can so far confirm that truly, the end has been told from the beginning. Jesus Christ is telling the truth and indeed, He was in the beginning.
We are seeing God use every day things that we can visibly see, to speak to us about matters concerning our soul, spirit and purpose.
All of His creation was created for signs, seasons and times.
What I find so beautiful yet intriguing is that He is actually consistent and coherent from Genesis to Revelation.
Quite honestly, never in my life have I seen or encountered such a great story teller like God. My mind is extremely blown away like pooofffff!!
When I realize he can say donkey but He means something much deeper, I’m left with a feeling I cannot describe.
Growing older, I am like of course!! What was I thinking before? God is so big, deep and unfathomable, to say cup and mean it in literal sense.
I mean, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY to the most HOLY and MIGHTY!! Indeed, Heaven and Earth is filled with His GLORY and I am here, to witness just that.
He tells of deep matters in such simple ways, it’s so easy to miss the point and I respect & accept that kind of challenge. I am so in love with His riddles, dark sayings, parables, proverbs and satirical way of expression.
You talk about communication skills? Nobody glories in that like my Father!!
Now that you’re following what happened in the creation story, let’s see what happened on day 6. What spiritual foundation was laid on the 6th day?
So as I have mentioned before livestock have been used to explain two categories of people. Firstly, rulers and authorities. Secondly, people in the two great divisions of light and darkness.
Both of them, in the spiritual realm, have a great role to play even as they fulfil the plans and purposes of God. Let’s go through each of them.
Hear this word, you cows of Bashan who are on the mountain of Samaria, who opress the poor, who crush the needy. Who say to your husbands , “Bring now, that we may drink!”
The Lord God has sworn by His holiness, “Behold, the days are coming upon you when they will take you away with meat hooks and the last of you with fish hooks”.
Many bulls have surrounded me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me. They open wide their mouth at me, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
The first scripture is a prophecy against false priesthood and corrupt religious leaders. All prophecy, is applicable until today.
Typical of everyone that is false, you can see they are very good at oppressing those who are poor and needy.
I told you a number one sign of a wicked spirit is the need to control and subdue people by hook or crook. An act that God has strongly been against since the beginning. When they feel you cannot be controlled then you become an enemy but Jesus Christ is Lord and besides Him there is no other!
‘Bulls of Bashan’, the corrupt religious leaders, are people who lavish their lives by means of falsehood, destroying others and many times even shedding innocent blood.
They are people who know no boundaries and of course blinded by their wickedness, have no fear of God. All they do, eventually, is to their own destruction.
The outcome of their wickedness as prophesied, in fact in many ways, is plain and clear, basically they are going to be destroyed. I will say now the third time, men who play God and with God, history has shown time and time again, never end well.
If you know you have been dealing falsely with people, whether you are a religious leader or not, repent when there is still time. Making a mistake is not bad but living as a mistake is dangerous. We don’t want to give our Father in heaven, a feeling of regret for creating us as it has happened before.
In the book of Psalms, king David in a spirit of prophecy, was praying what Jesus Christ prayed, when He was facing persecution from the false religious leaders.
At the time they were the pharisees and sadducees who still exist today in a different form. It is common knowledge that, in their self righteous allegations of ‘loving the Lord’, they were so conceited, that in their wickedness, with no reverence, they persecuted the Lord and still do the same today.
Or what do you think happens to Him as our burden bearer when we keep going back to what He sanctified with His blood? We crucify Him all over again!
It is for that reason that David and Amos while in the spirit declared that, they will be swept away if they refuse to repent with meat and fish hooks.
1 Kings 19:19
So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth.
And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him. He left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said “please let me kiss my father and my mother, then I will follow you”
And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?”
What Elisha was doing plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth, was prophesying to priests for the sake of growing the earth who were people, later to be the church.
You plough to plant seed. For this case, seed is the word of God. Ploughing is the act of ministry. Oxen were the priests and the earth were the people to be filled with the word of God.
Once they are filled by the spirit, they become church. That is members of the body of Christ, who was from the beginning and everything that is told, is about Him. Elisha, already had an impartation of prophecy and what Elijah did, was activate it.
Prophets and prophetesses, are leaders usually of priests, the flock and rulers. They keep the herd of both cattle and sheep now that you understand the language. That’s what Elisha was doing.
The thing about TRUE prophets and prophetesses, is that they have an extremely deeper revelation of spiritual matters because God deals with them sometimes directly, through the spirit or His holy angels.
That’s why often you will hear that they ate wild honey with curd, meat and locusts. This is not something that happens literally but it is rather a spiritual implication of revelations. Due to their assignments, challenges and tasks.
Since Elijah could not stand the stench of those two wicked people in a wicked union, Jezebel and Ahab, who I told you were killing the servants of God and doing abominable things for a living, he passed on his duties (mantle) to Elisha who carried on, as he was taken to heaven.
1st Timothy 5:18
For the scripture says, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING” and “The labourer is worthy of his wages”.
Again here, I just wanted to confirm to you that the cattle and ox are spiritual implications of the leaders within the church.
Of whom when they minister to you according to 1st Timothy, you are to ensure you take care of them so that they can do their job sufficiently.
I know this has been abused by many who are not appointed but it is and will be, to their own detriment.
Also I know there are a few left who “will not accept even the latchet of the shoe lace”. Paul did it and few others are doing it that way too. May God bless them abundantly.
THE GOLDEN CALF-BULL OF ‘BAAL’
Then all the people took off their gold earrings and brought them to Aaron.
He took the gold from their hands, and with an engraving tool he fashioned it into a molten calf.
And they said, “O Israel, these are your gods, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!”
When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before the calf and proclaimed: “Tomorrow shall be a feast to the LORD”.
So the next day they rose early and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses
“Go down at once, for your people, whom you brought up from the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves. They have quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them.
They have made for themselves a molten calf, and have worshiped it and have sacrificed to it and said, This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt!’”
Aaron and Moses are examples of Cattle/Ox. The good kind because they were righteous priests as well as prophets.
The gold earrings brought to Aaron were the valuable possessions purchased with silver and gold which the Israelites trusted on.
They came to put pressure on Aaron because Moses had taken long up in the mountain of sinai where God called him, to receive the commandments which were to be a guide for Israelites. This was done because of lack of Faith which leads to patience, perseverance and endurance.
The same will happen in our time because this was a foreshadow of what is to come. As Jesus Christ will take such a long time in the Mountain of Zion, where He intends to prepare a way for us to receive the law to be imparted upon our hearts, as opposed to a tablet of stone, people will turn to idol worshipping due to lack of faith. They will worship man and their silver and gold, only to be defiled and destroyed.
The golden bull represents the god of those who lack faith. The god to whom they pray to and trust, when it has no ear to hear or mouth to speak. The god incapable of saving from afflictions. A depraved idea which is as a result of spiritual harlotry and adultery. The deceptive method used by idol worshippers to build those luxuries you see.
The after math was God’s burning anger against their pride, blotting out of their names from the book of life and punishment.
It was not Aaron that saved them out of Egypt. He was just a guide, appointed by God, who was to turn them to Him and His life giving guidance. However due to lack of faith and their strange appetites, they made God’s servant fall short of His glory.
Secondly, it was not money that saved them from the oppression, corruption and afflictions of Egypt. Yet they actually wanted to go back and preferred oppression, corruption and afflictions. They said at least while they were in Egypt, they ate leeks, onions, cucumbers and bread. They loved the deceptive form of “security”.
Thirdly, the man who they depended upon, Pharaoh, a man of detestable practices, was in fact using them for his own selfish benefit and wanted to kill them.
I therefore can totally understand God’s righteous anger and judgment.
Here, we are introduced to Gideon who was a spiritual implication of an intercessor. His people at the time were under oppression by the Midianites and he was praying for deliverance.
The word says, ” he was beating out wheat in the wine press in order to save it from the Midianites”. Beating out wheat was trying to gather people to fight the Midianites. In the wine press was praying in the spirit. He was praying for the salvation of his people.
However, his prayers were not baring any fruit and the oppression had increased. He wondered greatly why he was not seeing the promises that God had made to Abraham and neither was he seeing the miracles of deliverance that had happened before.
By God’s grace, mercy and lovingkindness that is from everlasting to everlasting, He decided to counsel Gideon in form of an angel why his prayers were not being answered.
It turned out that his father was an idol worshipper and had set up a demonic alter in their household which was acting as a warlock against the prayers of Gideon.
Thankfully, God gave him a solution and eventually, He delivered the enemies of Israel into the hands of Gideon and they were destroyed.
The same thing that happened to Gideon by the way, is happening today. There are households with demonic alters and people who are even sacrificing their spouses and children to these alters.
The word says “making their sons and daughters pass through the fire”. This is something God considers an abomination. There are in fact, worse off, many of us who are born to sorcerers, magicians, diviners, necromancers, spiritists, astrologers, warlocks, spell casters and witches.
It is things such as these that have destroyed many issues of life and those that practice this must repent because judgment is here.
Now we are in the season where you will see a lot brought to light.
Like Ahab and Jezebel, there are people who have sold themselves to do evil and without remorse, will do evil against their spouses, children, true servants of God and God Himself. Thankfully, the Kingdom of God is at hand and so is judgment ready to recompense.
Otherwise the golden calf-the bull of Baal is an example of Idolatry. Where there is Idolatry the first sign you will see is envy, jealousy, cursing rather than blessing, malice, slander, lust, adultery, lies among many other things. The word says “there is all sorts of evil”.
Basically Idolaters become depraved in the mind and thats why they do things that usually a normal person wouldn’t do.
Something you should be very happy about when it comes to joint sabotage because of one person who chooses the path of abominations, is that Jesus Christ is with us, mighty to save.
If He did it for Gideon when He hadn’t taken away the certificate of decrees of accusation by His blood then how much more will He do it now?
It is written:
In those days, it will no longer be said: ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and this has set the children’s teeth on edge.’
Instead, each will die for his own iniquity.
If anyone eats the sour grapes, his own teeth will be set on edge
“Now behold, he has a son who has observed all his father’s sins which he committed, and observing does not do like-wise.
He does not eat at the mountain shrines or lift up eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, or defile his neighbor’s wife, or oppress anyone, or retain a pledge, or commit a robbery, but he gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with clothing, he keeps his hand from the poor, does not take interest or increase but executes my ordinances and walks in my statues,
he will not die for his father’s iniquity, he will surely live.
As for his father, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother and did what was not good among his people, he will die for his iniquity.
Yet you say, “why should the son not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity”?
When the son has practiced justice and righteousness and has observed all my statutes and done them, he shall surely live.
The person who sins will die.
The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.
But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and observes all my statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall surely live he shall not die.
All his transgressions which he has committed will not be remembered against him; because of his righteousness which he has practiced, he will live.
This I call glory in judgment and hopefully in self quarantine people will self examine and social distance from all wickedness.
What we are experiencing now, is just the beginning and a substance of what is to come. If you have a golden calf or THING that you worship, now is the perfect time to burn it and repent. If not, good luck because you will need it.
Besides that, I hope you now understand what livestock means in the creation story day 6 and scripture in its entirety.
The cattle, sheep, goats and there is even dogs and swine are representations of people.
Now lets go to the creeping things.
CREATURES THAT MOVE ALONG THE GROUND-CREATION DAY 6
I will use two examples here to give you an understanding of what this spiritually means.
