Genesis 1:20
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.


21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his 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 fowl multiply in the earth.


23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day

In these verses we find the continuing creation of life upon the earth. First the sea creatures, which probably included fish, whales, and other air breathing mammals and reptiles, and marine crustaceans that live in the seas.

Next God creates the animals that live in the air, which probably included birds, flying mammals and reptiles, and winged insects.

Verse 22 tells us that He created these animals ready to reproduce after their own kind. Therefore, they were created as adults and fully mature. It also states that these animals would reproduce after their OWN KIND and this would not allow for evolution from one kind of animal to another.
 

Also note the order of creation among the animals. Their creation coincides with the order of creation of the environment in which they live. The first environment was water, and the first animals were sea creatures. Then on day two God created the open skies beneath the firmament, and the second creation of animals were those that fly. The third and last environment, land, was created on day three. On the last day of creation the land creatures are made. God keeps order and purpose in all that he does.

Genesis 1:24
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.


25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good.


26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.


27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.


28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.


30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein [there is] life, [I have given] every green herb for meat: and it was so.


31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

God's first act upon the last day of creation was to create the land dwelling animals. This would have included the dinosaurs since they are land dwelling creatures. Each animal was designed to reproduce after itself, and not to evolve into something other than its own kind.

Verses 26, 27, and 28 describe the creation of man. Note that man is the only creature that God created in His own image. That makes man special. Man alone was created to have a unique relationship with God. This made him very different from all the other creatures that God made.

 

A perfect world could not have been built on death as many contend.

Verses 29 and 30 indicate that plants were different from the animal life forms. While animals have "the breath and blood of life within them" plants do not. Therefore plants are not alive in the same sense as the animals are. God gave the animals the plants to eat for food. God never intended for animals to prey upon other animals and eat meat. All of God's creatures were to eat vegetation as instructed in these verses.
At the end of the sixth day God looked upon all that He had created and found it to be very good. This would suggest that Satan had not yet fallen. If He had, the world would be soiled by His evilness.  A Holy God could not possibly look upon a creation that had been infected by sin and call it very good. It is much more probable that Satan sinned after the sixth day of creation when all things were as God created them - perfect.

Genesis 2:1-3
1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made
.

Ppicc464.bmp (609736 bytes) On the seventh day God rested from his work.  No, he wasn't tired. The word rested means that he ceased or finished.   Since the seventh day, God has not created any more kinds of life on the earth.   His creation was complete at that time.  Because God rested on the seventh day, we set aside one day each week to cease from our work and remember our Creator.
