  • Mike on Genesis 1:20
    Genesis 1:20 KJV 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.

    The waters in verse 20 speak of the living waters of the Spirit that bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life.

    This speaks of the joy that comes abundantly after the hearing of the Word of God as spoken in the living waters of the Spirit.

    Many will receive the Word with joy. The "moving creature" = "sherets" (swarm) which comes from "sharats" which means "to wriggle". To "wriggle" means "twist and turn with quick writhing movements." We "dance" so to speak with joy within our hearts after the hearing of His Word spoken from Heaven in the Spirit...the living waters.

    Abundant joy comes. Our mourning turns into "dancing" (Hebrew: machol which comes from "chuwl" which means "to twist or whirl (in a circular or spiral manner)". Many will "wriggle" with joy.

    Psalms 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

    The "fowls" that fly above the earth are our words of praise and thanksgiving to Him above when we hear His knowledge as spoken in our opened hearing of Heaven (in the open firmament of Heaven).

    We sing praise unto Him as birds/words of praise "fly" above the earth.

    (12) To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

    In the hearing of His Word of Truththe living River of the Spirit of God, everything that lives and moves. that is, rejoices shall live. Their souls shall live as they rejoice.

    Ezekiel 47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
