From dust and breath into living beings

After having brought structure in the cosmic chaos living creatures after their kind, came to populate waters and land. Last but not least human beings got the breath of life in them to multiply on earth.

The El ShaddaiShem Hashem Eloheichem, has His set-apart Divine Name Eh-heh-yeh ashair Ehheh- yeh (I Am Who I Am) because He is the Cause of everything. He started from out of nothing to have His Voice and Ruach HaKodesh wavering over the blackness, waste and void or unstructured space or chaotic environment.

The Omniscient Eternal spirit Being looked at the chaos and looked at the earth, and saw it was formless and empty. And the heavens, they had no light.

Jeremiah 4:23 OJB  I beheld ha’aretz, and, hinei, it was tohu vavohu [Genesis 1:2]; and HaShomayim — there was no ohr.

At first He prepared the hashomayim and eretz with its haaretz (heavens and earth) and brought lights in the raki’a (or celestial expanse) over them to bring division in time. That happened in the first two periods in which for the last period mayim or waters had gathered into their particular basins, so that dry land could appear. In the third period of creation God let the earth bring forth shoots or sprouts. That vegetation or verdure in itself received power from its Bore or the Divine Creator to yield each according to its kind.

From boker (morning) until erev (evening) haaretz (the earth -land surface- or soil) could warm up and the plants could grow in the sun light and give colour to the world with lush greenness and flourishing vegetation demonstrating the rich colourful flowers.

All elements could be covered with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a curtain. And it is that Most High Elohim יהוה {Jehovah} Who’s laying the beams of His upper rooms in the waters, Who is making thick clouds His chariot, Who is walking on the wings of the wind, making His messengers the winds, His servants a flame of fire.

Psalms 104:1-4 OJB  Barachi (bless) Hashem, O my nefesh. Hashem Elohai, Thou art gadol me’od; Thou art clothed with hod (honor) and hadar (majesty).  (2)  Who coverest Thyself with ohr (light) as with a garment; Who stretchest out Shomayim like a tent (curtain);  (3)  Who layeth the beams of His aliyyot (upper rooms) on the mayim; Who maketh the clouds His merkavah; Who walketh upon the wings of the ruach (wind);  (4)  Who maketh ruchot (spirits, winds) His malachim; His mesharetim (ministers), flaming eish;

In these waters now could come forth moving creatures having life. The waters in this fifth stadium brought forth abundantly such moving creatures, like reptiles, fishes and tannin (great sea creatures or whales), that had life in them and could reproduce, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven, and winged creatures flying above the earth in the firmament of heaven, and it was so that waters could be filled and fowl multiplied on the earth.

Genesis 1:20-23 OJB  And Elohim said, Let the waters bring forth an abundance of living creatures, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open raki’a of heaven.  (21)  And Elohim created great sea creatures, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth in abundance, after their kind, and every winged fowl after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was tov.  (22)  And Elohim blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.  (23)  And the erev and the boker were Yom Chamishi (Day Five, the Fifth Day).

There could have been very large serpents, dragons, crocodiles, dinosaurs and Canaanite literature portrays a great dragon as the enemy of the main fertility god Baal. Though the create creatures are not in rebellion with God. As the Sovereign He is not in any kind of battle to create the universe.

After we can see that there has come livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth who had not yet anybody above them or ruling them, but God. In the sixth period of creation, The Superior Omniscient Being Who is One and As Great Majesty speaks in the plural or Royal form, let the world know that He decided to make a being in His likeness. It is Only One God Who does the making. It is He Who like he Had created fowls after their kind, and cattle after their kind, plus other creeping things of the earth after his kind, two of every sort to keep them alive, He also created the first “he” and the first “she”, the ad-am or man (from the red earth of which he was formed), the zachar (male) and nekevah (female) the chavah or mannin (from the blush or flesh-tint of the human countenance) or woman, so that they could cultivate God’s Garden.

Acts 4:24 OJB  And having heard this, the people lifted their voices to Hashem with one mind, and said, “Rabbono Shel Olam, you are the one BARAH ES HASHOMAYIM V’ES HA’ARETZ and the yam and all that is in them, [ “יהוה, You are Elohim, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, ][Bereshis 1:1; Nechemyah 9:6; Iyov 41:11; Yeshayah 37:16; Tehillim 146:6; Shemot 20:11]

Genesis 2:5-7 OJB  And every plant of the sadeh was not yet in ha’aretz, and every herb of the sadeh had not yet yitzmach (sprung up, T.N. Moshiach is Tzemach [Zecharyah 3:8]); for Hashem Elohim had not caused it to rain upon ha’aretz, and there was not an adam (man) la’avod (to till, to work) haadamah (the ground).  (6)  But there went up a mist from ha’aretz, and watered the whole face of the adamah.  (7)  And Hashem Elohim formed the adam of the aphar min haadamah, and breathed into his nostrils the nishmat chayyim; and the adam became a nefesh chayyah.

Genesis 1:24-27 OJB  And G-d said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind; and it was so.  (25)  And G-d made the beast of the earth after its kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind; and G-d saw that it was tov.  (26)  And G-d said, Let Us make man in Our tzelem, after Our demut: 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 ha’aretz (the earth).  (27)  So G-d created humankind in His own tzelem, in the tzelem Elohim (image of G-d)  created He him; zachar (male) and nekevah (female) created He them.

Genesis 6:20 OJB  Of birds after their kind, and of behemah after their kind, of every remes of ha’adamah after its kind, two of every kind shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

It was by breathing or giving wind into the nostrils of the adam that ruach chayyim or  “breath of life” came unto him and the first man became a “living being” or a “living soul“. It is by that “breath of life” that there became movement or anima in a being and that a being could survive and as such a soul was the one in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, and those who did not have that “spirit” in them where lifeless or death.

Genesis 7:22 OJB  All in whose nostrils was the ruach chayyim, of all that was in the dry land, perished.

The 1° Adam like all the other Biblical characters got the spirit of God: that is, the breath which God gave them life (Genesis 2:7; 7:22; Job 27:3; Isaiah 2:22; 42:5; Acts of the apostles 17:25)

Job 27:3 OJB  All the while my neshamah is in me, and the ruach of Eloah is in my nostrils,

Now this special being made of mud, in the image of God, fitted in God’s Plan and had to do things.

Genesis 1:26-31 OJB  And G-d said, Let Us make man in Our tzelem, after Our demut: 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 ha’aretz (the earth).  (27)  So G-d created humankind in His own tzelem, in the tzelem Elohim (image of G-d)  created He him; zachar (male) and nekevah (female) created He them.  (28)  And G-d blessed them, and G-d said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill 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 G-d said, Hinei, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of kol ha’aretz (all the earth), and every etz (tree), in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.  (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 food; and it was so.  (31)  And G-d saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was tov me’od (very good). And the erev and the boker were Yom Shishi (Day Six, the Sixth Day).

Many millennia later it was about that divine Creator pupils of the Jewish rabbi would spread the Good News and told about Him Who had everyone to know as the Creator of everything.

Acts 14:15 OJB  “Anashim, why are you doing these things? We also are of the same nature as you, mere men, preaching to you to turn in teshuva from these worthless things to the Elohim Chayyim who made HASHOMAYIM V’ES HAARETZ V’ES HAYAM and all the things in them; [1Sm 12:21; Gn 1:1; Ps 146:6; Ex 20:11]
