                                THE SIXTH DAY OF CREATION 
                                                                  [ EIGHTH DAY MAN ?]


(Acts 17:26) "From ONE MAN He made EVERY nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth.... 


The Shepherds Chapel teaches that the Bible says the "sixth day creation of man" in Genesis 1:26,27 was the creation of the non-Adamic races (i.e., not Adam & Eve), and that the Adamic race (i.e., Adam & Eve, and their descendants ) whom they claim were of a "ruddy complexion" (i.e., white skinned), were created on some unwritten "8th day", but is this really what the Bible says?

       Shepherds Chapel teaches Adam & Eve were of "ruddy" complexion (i.e., white skinned). Yet they use a incorrect word meaning for Adam to confirm this theory. By improperly inferring Strong's word #119 for Adam {#119 is a Hebrew word, meaning dyed red , red, or  ruddy}, in place of the actual assigned word meaning, which is Strong's #120, which is properly rendered "man" or "mankind", they teach  that the "blushing" race descended from Adam. However, a search of Strong's #119 below will reveals it's used only ten times in the Old Testament, and never in reference to the man Adam or even in Genesis at all!

Now check #120, see what is actually written !

Consequently, in order to support their doctrine, Shepherds Chapel must rely on substituting "root words" and/or assigning "possible" alternative meanings to what is actually written! Thereby altering the meaning of the beginning of Genesis! 


Gen 1:3 And God *said, Let there be light: and there was light.

ON EVERY DAY OF CREATION, GOD *SAID (*SPOKE) IT FIRST, THEN IT CAME TO BE....FIRST THE "COMMAND", THEN THE "RESULT".

Romans 4:17 ...and [GOD]*calls[*COMMANDS] into being that which does not exist.

THE COMMAND
Gen 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of 
the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

THE RESULT
Gen 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters 
which [were] under the firmament from the waters
which [were] above the firmament: and it was so. 

THIS IS REPEATED ON EVERY DAY OF CREATION, FIRST THE
"COMMAND" FOR THE CREATION TO COME FORTH, THEN THE "RESULT", MANIFESTED IN OBEDIENCE TO THE *SPOKEN WORD(*see John1:1-3),INCLUDING  THE 6TH DAY, WHEN GOD *SPOKE OF CREATING MANKIND IN GENERAL[GEN1:26]...

THE COMMAND
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: 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 the earth. 

THE RESULT
Gen 1:27 So God
created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; 
*MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM*

(COMPARE 1:27 TO THIS VERSE FROM THE GENERATIONS OF ADAM... 
Gen5:2 ...
*MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM* ;and blessed them, and called their name Adam ,in THE DAY when they were CREATED.)

IN GEN1:27 GOD CREATES THE SPECIFIC MAN ADAM, THE FIRST MAN!  and later, Eve. 

THE IDEA OF CREATING "MANKIND" ON EARTH IN VS.26 WAS THE 
"COMMAND", NOT THE ACTUAL CREATION, THEN THE "RESULT" IS SEEN IN VERSE 1:27 !
 
THIS IS IN THE SAME CONTEXT AS THE FIRMAMENT SPOKEN OF IN Gen1:6 , THEN, FOLLOWING IN Gen1:7, WE SEE THE "RESULT" OF THIS COMMAND, THE ACTUAL CREATION OF THE FIRMAMENT. THIS HOLDS TRUE ON EVERY DAY OF CREATION.

NO MAN WAS CREATED UNTIL Gen 1:27 So God
created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; *MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM*

AND THAT MAN WAS, AS THE HEBREW DECLARES, THE SPECIFIC MAN ADAM (EVE'S HUSBAND), THE SAME MAN SPOKEN OF IN Gen2:7 AND AGAIN IN Gen5:1.


SOME MAY TEACH  THE WORD "CREATED" IN Gen1:27 IS NOT THE
SAME WORD AS IN Gen2:7 [FORMED], HOWEVER, THE WORD
"CREATED" IS USED IN THE GENERATIONS OF ADAM{Gen5:1}THEREFORE, THIS ARGUMENT IS INVALID.

OTHERS MAY INSIST THAT ADAM OF Gen2:7 WAS CREATED FOR
A SPECIFIC PURPOSE OF "TILLING THE GROUND", HOWEVER, JUST AS Gen2:5 SPEAKS OF THE *CREATION ALREADY MADE IN Gen1:12,[ i.e. *THE GRASS, HERB ect.], SO DOES Gen2:7 SPEAK OF THE CREATION ALREADY MADE IN GEN1:27, THE FIRST MAN, ADAM.

Gen2:7 IS AN EXPANDED VIEW OF Gen1:27, NOT SOME SEPARATE CREATION! [e.g. JUST AS THE CATTLE WERE CREATED IN Gen1:24,THESE SAME CATTLE WERE MENTIONED AGAIN IN Gen.2:20, NOT SOME SEPARATE "8TH DAY CREATION" OF CATTLE !  IN THIS
SAME CONTEXT THE SAME MAN OF 1:27  IS MENTIONED AGAIN IN 2:7

BOTH OF THESE ABOVE ARGUMENTS OF SOME "8TH DAY CREATION" ARE OF LITTLE VALIDITY, AS THERE WAS, IN FACT, NO MAN CREATED IN GEN1:26, BUT ONLY THE "COMMAND" GIVEN,  THE "RESULT"  DID NOT MATERIALIZED UNTIL GEN1:27,  IN THE PERSONAGE OF
ADAM !

THE FOLLOWING IS ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME WORDING AS
GEN1:26-27....CAN THERE BE ANY DOUBT THE FIRST MAN, 
ADAM, IS THE ONE BEING SPOKEN OF?  IT IS VERY CLEARLY WRITTEN.

Gen 5:1 This [is] the book of THE GENERATIONS OF *ADAM [*Strong's#120  i.e. mankind, THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND, THRU ADAM.] 
*In the day* [NOTICE ONLY ONE DAY (the 6th) IS EVER MENTIONED IN THE CREATION OF MAN, NOT TWO] that God created man, in the *likeness[*IMAGE-see GEN1:26] of God made he him;

Gen 5:2 *MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM*(see Gen1:27) ; and
blessed them, and called their name Adam [Strong's#121], IN THE (6th) DAY
when they were created.

Gen 5:3 And [THIS SAME MAN] Adam lived an hundred and thirty years,
and begat [a son] in his own likeness, after his image; and
called his name Seth:

THERE IS NEVER ANY MENTION OF ANY "DAYS OF CREATION" OTHER THAN THE 6 DAYS OF GENESIS, THERE IS NO SECOND WITNESS, OR FIRST WITNESS, FOR THAT MATTER, TO ANY "8 th DAY" EVER MENTIONED ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE.  IN FACT, JUST THE
*OPPOSITE IS TRUE...!

Genesis 2
1
Thus the heavens and the earth were *finished, and *all the host of them.
2
And on the seventh day God *ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from *all his work which God created and made.

CAN YOU READ WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRITTEN? 

 
NOW THAT WE SEE THE CONTEXT OF THE SIXTH DAY OF CREATION IN IT'S ENTIRETY, WE MUST, GOING BY WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRITTEN, HAVE NO OTHER CONCLUSION BUT THAT THE FIRST MAN CREATED IN GENESIS 1:27 WAS THE SPECIFIC MAN ADAM, EVE'S HUSBAND.
