Precept upon precept, Gen. 1:1 states that In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. Several strict translations acknowledge that the phrase, "the heaven (not plural) and the earth (again not plural)" was a joint dual prepositional phrase of the verb, created. They show that because the Biblical Hebrew particle, ‘eth precedes the noun shamayim (heavens) and ve’et or, and ‘eth precedes the noun, ‘erets (earth), this phrase demands a "Hebrew dual" connotation: It is a joint duality of a single creation of something that verse 2 describes as a single deep expanse of waters. Both the depth and the substance had a face in common until the second day. According to Hebrews 11:1-3, we know that the Hebrew people always had understood this to be ONE invisible creation--such as ONE invisible deep body of gaseous matter:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
This phrase must be treated as a Hebrew dual because the Hebrew word translated as those very waters in Genesis 1:2 is the noun, "mayim" a Hebrew dual. This Hebrew dual is an inherent twosome of a primitive noun that is used in a singular sense, therefore, there were no plural heavens and there was no individually identifiable earth--only a single body of invisible gaseous waters from which all the numerous worlds, and even the earth's numerous individual bodies of liquid waters (seas) would be "formed and "made". This dual phrase reveals the identity of the twosome required here, (1) the heaven, and (2) the earth, from which all thiongs were made and formed.
Those "waters" were not specifically named in verse one, but just appeared in verse two typically as if being eternal, and afterward, at certain points in time over six days, were "made" into all visible things that are made. "Mayim" (waters) provide a very provable "type" of the invisible, eternal Word of God who was "made" visible flesh, "made" of a woman, "made" under the law, "made" of the seed of David, to become both Savior as well as to Prince who will who will reign as King of the Jews over all the earth.
On numerous occasions, scripture "typically" used waters in this manner as both a "type" of the spiritual "Word of God" above the earth, as well as the flesh of man under the firmament. John baptized on earth under heaven with visible (liquid) water, whereas Jesus baptized with the invisible Holy Ghost after ascending above the earth. Ezekiel 1:24-25 is speaking about certain sounds that the air (those invisible gaseous waters) made when four living creatures’ wings flapped and moved that air. Those sounds are described as being "like" the voice of the almighty, the voice of speech, "as" the noise of an hoist. John 1:33 quotes John the Baptist as saying:
And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
In John 3:5-8 we "typically see" the birth of liquid water, as well as the birth of the spirit that is again typified by the wind that is made up of gaseous waters, both being necessary for mankind to enter into the kingdom of God.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit . . . . The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
... and again, liquid waters "typically" as both mankind and their tongues (the word of man on earth) are used in John 1:31-32:
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations and tongues.
To the point, "mayim" (waters) "brought forth" (became the habitat of) two types of living creatures: the fish of the liquid waters and the fowl of the gaseous waters. Liquid waters typify Jesus in the flesh who sanctified believers from the earth while He was on the earth, whereas the Holy Ghost sanctifies believers from the earth after Jesus ascended above the earth. The disciples were to be "fishers of men" while following the "Word of God) step-by-step on the earth, however, that fishermen description abruptly stopped when the "Word of God" told them they could not follow him when He ascended above the earth--out of their sight.)
After man first sinned, the earth--not the waters--was cursed for man's sake. God would never curse the Word of God, and "typically," He did not curse the waters. Therefore, it can be also said "typically" that the waters were not cursed for man's sake. Those waters further typified the Word of God who came to earth to judge the earth during the flood.
Yes, the fish and fowl which the visible and invisible waters brought forth were indeed blessed, whereas the earth creatures were not specifically blessed. This appears to follow the types.
