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.

    GOD IS EXCELLENT IN HIS CREATION, AND MIGHTY IN HIS POWER! AND NOT SLACKING IN HIS PROMISES AS SOME MEN OR HUMANKIND COUNT HIM TO BE! GOD AS OUR FATHER WANTS TO BE OUR HEALOR, LORD, GOD, AND KING! PROVIDER, WAY MAKER, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS OR RIGHT WAY, AND HOPE! INSTEAD OF THE GOVERNORMENT OR ANOTHER SOURCE.

    Susan, Proverbs 3:5-8. Trust in the Lord with all thine. Ephesians 5 chapter. Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourself with Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. God Bless.
  • Susan
    God must be deeply grieved to have created the spectacular wonders of the Universe with all its glory,to have man, whom He created in His own image, to not only misuse and destroy animals and the earth itself, but also to either flagrantly disobey the Creator or even fail to recognize His existence!Sadder still to Him am I who sees His Glory yet falls short daily.Yet gave His Son for me.Forgive me
