The 8th Day Creation

1st Day- Darkness and Light. (Night and Day)
2nd Day- Waters. Division between them
3rd Day- Dry land. Fruit from it
4th Day- The Sun, moon, and stars
5th Day- Waters. Life from them
6th Day- Mankind: (The Races)

On the 7th day God rested. Adam was not "formed", (not created), until after God rested. This means there was an 8th day creation.
  • Genesis 2:7-8 (7) "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (8) And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed."

This man which God formed, "the man", is "eth-ha'adham" in the Hebrew, had a specific purpose. God did not have a man to till the ground, in other words a farmer. God "created" mankind on the 6th day, but "formed" Adam on the 8th.

  • Genesis 2:20 "And Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." The races, (6th day creation), were to have dominion over all the "beasts of the earth", whereas Adam's beasts were of the "field".
Chapter 1 of Genesis: Wild animals created, then mankind.
Chapter 2 of Genesis: Adam formed, then domestic animals, then Eve.
