Creation: BEGINNING 3

By: Ely Lagajino

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)

​God appointed Adam as ruler over the living creatures thatwere “made capable of loving and serving man” (PP p.16).  Adam started to name the animals at the early stage of the sixth day. The pair of dogs were probably called Ba, and wow.  Perhaps he named the animal with a pocket on the tummy as Kanga and her partner roo.  

While naming the animals, Adam marveled at why they came to him by pairs as male and female; at this point, he realized that he needed a partner. At break time, while maybe eating guava, God placed him into a deep sleep. He removed one rib from Adam’s chest and made him a companion. Adam called her Eve; they both had a feeling of love at first sight when they saw each other. 

Adam and Eve continued naming the rest of the animals, birds, fishes, and other creatures during their life in Eden and became familiar with their habits.  Animals listened to, and obeyed Adam and Eve as their master.  (From the heart p.139) 

​Probably they trained some animals for particular duties. They could have taught the dog breaststroke to save the lives of other creatures who might be drowning. The fireflies were probably assigned to serve Adam and Eve as a dim light at night while sleeping under the trees.   

The animals and birds loved their names just like you and me. (PP p .23)    Mr. and Mrs. Adam enjoyed living in the garden home, working as God’s caretakers.
