I heard the age-old question again today, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?”
I have never understood why people do not automatically know the answer to this question. This is basic Bible study 101 for me – I am positive it is the chicken.
Below in Genesis 1:20-23 regarding the events of the fifth day of creation has some gems in it. First, He created every winged fowl. He blessed the fowl and said, “let fowl multiply in the earth.” So the chicken was created and then laid eggs to do the multiplying; thus answering the age old question.
The other gem in here is the last statement, “and the evening and the morning were the fifth day.” The late Dr. Chuck Missler pointed out many years ago that this statement is awkward because a day is more than the evening through morning which caused him to go to the original texts looking for an answer to his question. He is right, the translation is awkward to me also. What he discovered in the original texts is that the translation is a difficult one, but he went through step by step inspection.
The more accurate translation is ‘from chaos to order’. This statement is made for day one through day six, and of course day seven was a day of rest because He finished His Creation. From chaos to order explains what He did for six days. This is awesome. Transversely, when you see anything going from order to chaos in a small way, it is often human activity. When you see anything going from order to chaos in a big way, Satan is at work trying to foil God’s plans as often as he can.
When you look at life experience on the planet earth, all activity falls into this scenario. Further, when you see activity going from chaos to order, humans are at work for good, and transversely from order to chaos, humans are at work for ill purpose. When you see Satan’s order to chaos, it can be said Satan is ordering human activity in the negative. When you see Satan’s order to chaos in a big way, it can be seen he is ordering natural disasters of a large scale.
There is a lot to ponder here. I pray before Bible study for help to positively impact the information I write about. What I write is always affected in a way different from what I originally thought it would be. Sometimes I read what I have typed and am surprised at what came of my effort. Today is one of those days. I pray for this information to be a blessing unto us all.
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.
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.
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”
