2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17 that the man of God may be perfected, thoroughly furnished to every good work.

So for every verse of Scripture that we read, we should ask ourselves what we are being told. What instruction or correction is being laid before us. We should meditate in how a particular verse or set of verses are profitable to us and how they would furnish us into every good work.

2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17 that the man of God may be perfected, thoroughly furnished to every good work.

So for every verse of Scripture that we read, we should ask ourselves what we are being told. What instruction or correction is being laid before us. We should meditate in how a particular verse or set of verses are profitable to us and how they would furnish us into every good work.

The first mention of fowls is in the fifth day of creation:

Gen 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
Gen 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

The Holy Spirit teaches us to compare spiritual things with spiritual. If we can receive that His word are spirit and life, then we can clearly see the invisible things of God through the things that are made.

1Co 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

But if we are at a stage where we are not yet given to see the mysteries of the kingdom of God, this study will be pretty much foolishness to us.

1Co 2:14 But the natural [carnal] man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Pro 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

So before we try to discern what Gen 1:20-22 is telling us, let us look first at some Scriptures that tell us what birds or fowls spiritually mean.

Luk 3:22 and the Holy Spirit came down upon him in the form of a dove. A voice from heaven said, “You are my own dear Son, and I am pleased with you.”

Joh 1:32 I was there and saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven. And the Spirit stayed on him.

From the verses above, I hope it is clear to everyone that birds, especially a dove, can typify the Holy Spirit. But is this the only one that birds can typify? Let us look at more verses.

Mar 4:4 And as he sowed, it happened that indeed some fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and ate it up.

Our Lord explained the meaning of this parable to His disciples including the meaning of the fowls in the air.

Mar 4:14 The sower sows the Word.
Mar 4:15 And these are those by the wayside, where the Word is sown. And when they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the Word that was sown in their hearts.

Mat 13:19 When anyone hears the Word of the kingdom and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.

So birds or fowls can also signify the adversary and all evil spirits:

Mar 5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

What Gen 1:20 – 22 is telling us is that Christ created the spirit world, both good and evil spirits “every winged fowl after his kind” (Col 1:16). This should be profitable to us unto doctrine since the vast majority of the Christian world believe in a false doctrine that evil spirits began as good spirits but they rebelled against God. Other parts of Scripture exposes the lie in this false doctrine.

Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Not only did God create the spirit world through Christ (Num 17:6, Heb 12:9), we are also told that He is in total control of all of them, both good and evil spirits.

Mat 26:53 Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me more than twelve legions of angels?

Jdg 9:23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:

1Sa 16:14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
1Sa 16:15 And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

Another scripture that mentions the word bird will bear the truth of God’s total sovereignty even further.

Isa 46:11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

The phrase “ravenous bird” came from one Hebrew word:

H5861
עיט
‛ayiṭ
ah’-yit
From H5860; a hawk or other bird of prey: – bird, fowl, ravenous (bird).

If we look for other verses that the Holy Spirit has inspired the writers of the bible to use, we should start to see what this ravenous bird is.

Jer 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.

Eze 39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

So this ravenous bird that executes the counsel of our Lord (Isa 46:11) is also likened to the beasts of the field (Jer 12:9, Eze 39:4) that has come to devour God’s people.

Here is how the New Testament interpret these Scriptures:

1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Now let’s find out where this ravenous bird can be found:

Isa 46:11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

2Ki 20:14 Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.

Isa 39:3 Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon.

These ravenous birds, grievous wolves, beasts of the field are the false ministers of Babylon who peddle the word of God and twist them to deceive the simple minded.

2Co 11:20 For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

Jer 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.
Jer 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.

But we all go through Babylon before we come out of it. We all believed these false preachers and their false teachings. We all must live by the words of this parable:

Mat 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Mat 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

At this stage we do have a form of godliness, but we still know Christ after the flesh. We are puffed up by our newly gained knowledge, telling ourselves that we are rich and in need of nothing (Rev 3:17).

Dan 4:10 The visions of my head as I lay in bed were these: I saw, and behold, a tree in the midst of the earth, and its height was great.
Dan 4:11 The tree grew and became strong, and its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the end of the whole earth.
Dan 4:12 Its leaves were beautiful and its fruit abundant, and in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, and the birds of the heavens lived in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it.

But pride comes before destruction. For those who are chosen by God to rule in the first resurrection, He will crush this prideful old man within each one of us and set our Lord to rule in our lives.

Dan 4:13 “I saw in the visions of my head as I lay in bed, and behold, a watcher, a holy one, came down from heaven.
Dan 4:14 He proclaimed aloud and said thus: ‘Chop down the tree and lop off its branches, strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the beasts flee from under it and the birds from its branches.

This coming out of Babylon and casting out of evil spirits from within our heavens (the Kingdom of God is within you) is a lifelong process and not a one time event. This process begins with desiring the sincere milk of His Word as newborn babes and then as the Lord wills, we will progress to the stronger meat of the word. Along this process, we are told to beware of any leaven (false doctrines) that will pollute the pure words of God. This vigilance and diligence to guard our sacrifices to Him is typified by Abram driving away the birds of prey that wants to devour his sacrifices to God.

Gen 15:11 And when birds of prey came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.

This knowledge should motivate us to continue to abide in His word and His body. It should encourage us to try the spirit and seek a multitude of counselors before believing any teaching. Knowing that God controls all spirits, good or evil, will also keep us from harboring any ill feelings on anyone who has wronged us or has persecuted us because we now know that He does work all things after the counsel of His own will.

1Ki 22:23 Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.

Mar 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

But only the elect of God has been given the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth that guides us in all truth.

Joh 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come.
Joh 16:14 He will glorify Me, for He will receive of Mine and will announce it to you.

Before this, we are told that this is the spirit that dwell in all of us:

Mat 8:20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes [another predator that devours the flock of God] have holes, and birds of the air have nests [in our heavens], but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”

Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

It is only in His body that He has a place to lay His head. He is the firstborn from the spiritually dead which we all are at first before we are given His spirit in measure (Luk 9:60, Mat 8:22, Heb 2:4).

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

The elect who is typified by the four beasts around the throne of God, has now put Christ on the throne of their lives and has Him as the preeminent reason for all their works.

Rev 4:7 And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a calf, and the third living creature had the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle.
Rev 4:8 And each one of the four living creatures had six wings about him, and within being full of eyes. And they had no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God, the Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

We now live our lives as unto the Lord.

Eph 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
Eph 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
Eph 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

Col 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Col 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

We now do all things to the glory of God.

1Co 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Rev 4:9 And whenever the living creatures gave glory and honor and thanks to Him who sat on the throne, who lives forever and ever,

We are now careful to maintain good works and do not get weary in doing good for it is Him who works in us both to will and to do His good pleasure.

Isa 40:31 but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run [for the prize of the high calling of God, Php 3:14] and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

What are these wings like eagles and that keep us running towards the goal of the first resurrection?

Eze 10:5 And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

Psa 119:28 My soul weeps for grief; strengthen me according to Your Word.
