And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
As with the fifth day, the animals were created to live on dry land. Why the sea animals first, then the land animals? I don't know. That will be one of those questions we'll ask him face to face. However, don't be surprise if the answer is that somebody had to be first. Nothing more than that.

And so the controversy continues.... This verse is another one that points to the multi-dimensionality of Elohim. Does this mean the Father, son and the Holy Spirit? Yes and most likely more. As mentioned before, the concept of the Trinity is not in the Bible and limits a limitless G-d. However, as far as our reality is concerned, Elohim wishes that we see him at least as a triune God. With that said, here we have the Father, Yeshua and his Holy Spirit creating man in his own image. Yes...his own image. Even though he is at least a triune God, he is one as the Sh'ma says.
What is his image? We are created as body, mind, spirit and soul. Is this what G-d looks like? Because of our sin, we are limited to a four dimensional existance, three spacial and one time. Therefore, G-d reveals himself to us as a three spatial dimensional God. The time dimension is his eternal existence exactly as ours. However, we will enjoy a multi-dimensional spatial existence just like G-d in our post resurrection body. Being returned to a mult-dimensional existence, is all part of being redeemed. Thank you Adonai.
