On this day there is no need for further creation, just an enjoyment of perfection.
“Life-forms that live primarily on the land were created on the sixth day. This day paralleled the third day when dry land appeared. Again the creation was according to various kinds.”—Kenneth O. Gangel and Stephen J. Bramer,
“The creation of aquatic and flying creatures occurs on Day 5, a day which parallels Day 2 when the waters and skies were created.”— Kenneth O. Gangel and Stephen J. Bramer,
How is it that there could be light before the sun was made, or so it would seem? The problem arises because the creation account comes across as though the sun was not created until the fourth day (1:14-16), yet there was light on the first day (1:3). The solution to this Bible difficulty lies within today's study of God's Word.
God declared on the third day of creation, Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear. In the gathering together of the waters on the surface of the earth, separation occurred.
On the second creation day, God declared, Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.
God fills his universe with productive matter and places mankind in a position of authority.—Kenneth O. Gangel and Stephen J. Bramer
