First of all, let's look at who God had to be:

 

In order for God to create all that we see and more, He had to be apart from it and not in a physical form, because He is the Creator of the physical. 

A very clever student, Kevin Kahl, came up with a definition of God which I thought was impressive:

"God is everything and nothing at the same time, and He is everywhere, but nowhere to be seen."

WHO IS GOD?

NOTE: All links are in red and they will take you to actual bible verses.

 

NOTE: Genesis was written in Hebrew.  I recommend you go to https://www.scripture4all.org/  for direct translations.

In other words, before God created all that we see, there was nothing.

This verse tells us that God had created the waters of the earth and now as a Spirit was hovering over them..

We have now established from the Bible (above) that God is a Spirit who created all that we see. 

Below is a list of the days, what God did on those days, and the related Bible verse

THE BEGINNING: The first seven days of God's creation:

  1. ​The 1st day heavens, waters, day, and night created (Genesis 1:1-5)

  2. The 2nd day - the sky, morning, and evening created  (Genesis 1:6-8)

  3. The 3rd day - dry land, seas, seed-bearing plants, vegetation, and fruit trees created (Genesis 1:11-13)

  4. The 4th day - the Sun, Moon, and stars created (Genesis 1:14-19)

  5. The 5thday - creatures that live in the sea and creatures that fly created and blessed (Genesis 1:20-23)

  6. The 6th day - living creatures, livestock and wild animals, and 2 human spirits - made in the image of God - created (Genesis 1:24-31)

  7. The 7th day - God finished his work of creation and rested, blessing the seventh day and making it holy. (Genesis 2:1-2)

On the 6th day God says:

Geneses 1:26; Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness,

so that they may rule over

the fish in the sea

and the birds in the sky,

over the livestock and all the wild animals,

and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

God is suggesting that He create "mankind" “male and female” "in our image". 

God and Jesus (who God was talking to - see below) were both Spirits = the “male and female” creations are also spiritual ("in our image" Genesis 1:26).

God had not made physical bodies for them yet.  He does that later (see below).

Proverbs 8:22-23; The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works,

before his deeds of old;

23 I was formed long ages ago,

at the very beginning, when the world came to be.

Jesus is the "first of His works".

"Let us"  is God and Jesus. 

God is talking to Jesus when He says

 

"Let us make man in our Image".

Geneses 1:27; So God created mankind

in his own image,

in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.

God creates 2 spirits in His likeness, which means they have to be spiritual images (Genesis 1:27),

 

which He intends to insert into male and femaile bodies at at later date.

Genesis 2:5-6; Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth

and no plant had yet sprung up,

for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,

6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.

God tells His newly created male and female spirits about the world they are about to inherit - when they have bodies - and gives them instructions;

Genesis 1:28; God blessed them and said to them,

“Be fruitful and increase in number;

fill the earth and subdue it.

Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Genesis 1:29; Then God said,

“I have given you every seed-bearing plant

on the face of the whole earth

and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.

They shall be yours for food.

PLANET GOLD HAZE smaller pngwing.png

In other words, it is not necessary for these 2 spirits (when they have bodies) to be concerned/worried about what they will have for food because it is supplied for them.

Genesis 1:30; And to every beast of the earth

and all the birds in the sky

and all the creatures that move along the ground, where there is life, 

I have given every green plant for food.

And it was so.

Also, it is not necessary for these 2 spirits to be concerned/worried about what every living creature will have for food. (since they are going to "rule" them when they have bodies) as it says in: Genesis 1:28 (above)

God now rests on the 7th day. 

He has created the universe including planet Earth, creatures, fish, birds, livestock and wild animals. 

He has created 2 spirits, which will rule over the life He has created, when they have human bodies.

Next, God puts in streams which "watered the whole surface of the ground."

Mankind began here: 

In Genesis 2:7 (below, which was on the 6th day of creation) God creates a human body for the male spirit He has created.

NOTE: God creates a body for the female spirit later in Genesis 2:22.

Genesis 2:7; 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.

Man's body formed (made)

God breathes the "breath of life"

                  into the man's body

to make it living.

(Which he had done for all the other

creatures, animals and birds).

SUMMARY

Because of varios confusions,  we have split the above verse  into 3 PARTS.  See below

PART 1

GENESIS 2:7 REPEATED
Look at enlarged text

 

Genesis 2:7; 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.

PART 2

PART 1

GENESIS BREATH OF LIFE canva.png

PART 2

PART 1

God forms a body for the man spirit

(created in Genesis 1:27.) 

from the dust of the ground

This body is not living. 

PART 2

NOTE: Usage of the term: "BREATH OF LIFE". 

Geneses 7:22; Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 

'Breath of life' refers to the physical bodies of creatures, animals, and humans.  It does not address the spiritual.

PART 3

GENESIS 2:7 REPEATED
Look at enlarged text

 

Genesis 2:7; 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.

PART 3

GENESIS COLLAGE STEP 3 oct 21.png

PART 3

God puts His Image (created in 

Geneses 1:27; So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.)

into the now living body, at the same time as breathing the Breath of Life into the body (see Part 2 above)

 

and the body becomes not only LIVING but also has God's image within it. 

NOTE:God put His image created in Genesis 1:27 (see above) at the same time as He breathed the breath of life into the body. 

 

There is no reason to expect God to do it any other way.  Why wouldn't he breathe the breath of life (which he had done with all the other animals/creatures to make them live) at the same times inserting His image into the body to make it superior to all the other animals so the man could rule over them?

Just using pure logic, God would have to give this fleshly body + brain (with only a genetic program) 

something to make it superior to animals, birds, and creatures

in order for it to "rule" over them  (See above).

We can see how the first man (later named Adam) got his Image of God, but how do we get our Image of God (human spirit) into each one of our bodies?   

We are not born fully grown as Adam was.  God created a woman (later named Eve) who could birth new bodies and when the baby body was in the woman's womb, then God would insert His image (human spirit).

Today, women birth babies and every one has God's human spirit inserted into the baby while he/she is in the womb.  (See 'HUMAN SPIRIT')

  1. God created a male and female spirit (in His image)

  2. God is a spirit, therefore any image of Himself would have to be spiritual. 

  3. God then created a body from the dust of the earth &

  4. breathed into it the breath of life to make it living, (as He had done with all the various types of animals, birds, and creatures). 

  5. God then simultaneously infused the now living body with 'His image' to make an intelligent, being.
    who could rule over the birds and over all the animals and creatures that moved on the earth.  

  6. God had to create Adam as a fully grown man so he could rule over all the animals and creatures.

THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION

The theory of evolution has been disproved over and over again.  I always ask why apes are not still turning into men. 

 

I am sure Satan's dream would be for all mankind to assume it came from the ape, and that the Bible's view of creation was not true.  

Among the many organizations out there that have disputed the 'theory of evolution' is the organization ICR (Institution for Creation Research).  You might want to study it's website and especially the Discovery Center.
