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.

    YOU KNOW I AM ALWAYS EXCITED WHENEVER I EVEN THINK OF THE WORD OF GOD. HE IS THE SOURCE OF LIFE AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN MY LIFE. LET'S ALL DO OUR BEST TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL EVEN FURTHER THROUGHOUT THE EARTH, GOD IS COUNTING ON US TO DO SO.

    GOD BLESS YOU
  • Hebrews 8
    And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:21Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.22For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things( Acts 3)

    This ONE true GOD exists as three persons: GOD the FATHER (Acts 4:4); GOD the SON (John 1-1:3); GOD the HOLY SPIRIT (Ps 104:30)
    God exists in three persons who are equal in their attributes and yet individual and distinct in their offices and ministries. Matt 3:16-17; Eph 1:3-14; 2Thess 2:13-14; Titus 3:4-6

    Irene123 mentioned, "nowhere do i see Jesus responding to anything.." Remember: not only Jesus was the WORD Who was with God but He was God according to St John 1:1.,,bblessed

    Genesis Chapter 1 and 2 are not 2 separate creation accounts. Genesis 1 is a summary and 2 goes into greater detail.
  • Irene123
    Some read Gen. 1:2 as - there was a 'first' earth - and it was destroyed, then God created a 2nd earth on which we live. No one 'knows' if God created more than one earth. Maybe He did, BUT - the Bible does NOT say such - so we should not speculate, as such speculation has NOTHING to do with OUR salvation.
