Wesley's Notes for Genesis 1:24


1:24-25 We have here the first part of the sixth day's work. The sea was the day before replenished with fish, and the air with fowl; and this day are made the beasts of the earth, cattle, and the creeping things that pertain to the earth. Here, as before, (1.) The Lord gave the word: he said, Let The earth bring forth - Let these creatures come into being upon the earth, and out of it, in their respective kinds. 2. He also did the work; he made them all after their kind - Not only of divers shapes, but of divers natures, manners, food, and fashions: In all which appears the manifold wisdom of the Creator.

    Love this he did create the heaven and earth
  • Word
    John in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the WORD was God and think about it the Word is the LIGHT! And the Word created all things. And the Word said let us make man in OUR image and He didn't leave Himself out because He said when you have seen Me you've seen the Father. Father wouldn't ask us to do something He wouldn't do but He loved us with all His heart paid a price.
