Wesley's Notes for Genesis 1:29

1:29-30 We have here the third part of the sixth day's work, which was not any new creation, but a gracious provision of food for all flesh, #Psa 136:25|. - Here is, 1. Food provided for man, Ge 1:29. herbs and fruits must be his meat, including corn, and all the products of the earth. And before the earth was deluged, much more before it was cursed for man's sake, its fruits no doubt, were more pleasing to the taste, and more strengthening and nourishing to the body. 2. Food provided for the beasts, #Ge 1:30|. Doth God take care of oxen? Yes, certainly, he provides food convenient for them; and not for oxen only that were used in his sacrifices, and man's service, but even the young lions and the young ravens are the care of his providence, they ask and have their meat from God.

I 'd just like to point out that we still have God given rights in this country... God gave us every plant and HERB on the face of the Earth... so my question is... Why is marijuana illegal?

I cannot believe where people come up with the fact that we are not true carnivores. Read you Bible. That 's all I can say.

God loves us evev though and everything was provided for us even before the foundation ofthe earth and everything he provided for was good not to harm us so let s tap into his goodness

 

Tegan's comment on 2014-01-31 17:08:09:

Jeff: Before the Fall and the curse on the earth, every fruit was edible. The curse brought death, thorns, weeds etc- so poisonous, inedible things, even allergies and disease. All these things did not exist before because they harm humans and animals. But sin brought bad things into existence.

 

K S REDDY's comment on 2014-01-28 01:28:22:

Meat here means food for creatures including man.That is why we kill and eat animals?

 

Ebenezar Wikina's comment on 2013-11-13 06:36:50:

This shows GOD is a sustainability-thinker. He emphasised 'Seed bearing' because he knew when they eat the fruits, they throw away/plant the seeds to grow more fruits for future generations. Sustainability didn't start today, and yes it's a God-dea(idea)

Coming from a physiological point of view , We are not true carnivores , our physiological processes do not allow us to digest and and absorb saturated fats and all the toxins that are in the animal flesh, we have a very long digestive track , true carnivores have a short digestive track. They have uric acid to break down animal flesh , we do not . Our teeth structure is for crushing , not ripping into flesh... All animal products contain cholesterol, and saturated fats, the plant kingdom does not.
This is why humans and pets have so many degenerative dis-eases.. Especially heart related diseases , cancers ,diabetes and such . We are cloogged up!!!! So eating anothers flesh does contribute to dis-ease , along with many other contributing factors.
Hope this helps

i,m sure our lord could not mention every conceivable allergies with food intake-if so the bible would be as long as Obahma care.

Fruit was meat for man and if was Good before the disobedience of man. Remember all was GOOD before that.

 

Jeff's comment on 2010-12-21 23:42:13:
