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.

    Luke reveals Jesus fulfillment of the solumn feast Sabbath which is the sign setting everything in order. Obviously he could not attend the beginning of the feast on the 15th day ,he was being born.It was a full moon.All of this is recorded in the Heavens. It can all be observed in the Moon phase information of the Nasa Program. All of the Apostles took this information for common knowledg

    Lu2677 I have been away from access. In Luke 1:5 Luke tells us what week this story begins . I gave you this information. When he arrived home Elizabeth conceived and 6 months later she was with Mary. This is late December if you do the math. Forty weeks later Jesus is born on the Feast of Tabernacles. This is the math. As you can see it is 3rd grade math. It is just no one wants to do it.

    Lu2677,
    I did not mean this in anyway against you. These are obstacles you will encounter in witnessing God's truth.I have been rebuked by many in the truth that Jesus Christ is our salvation as well as the salvation for the Jews. He is our TABERNACLE as well as theirs. This all fits biblically. I hope you have this understanding now. I will check back in a week or so . God Bless you brother

    Jeremiah10:2 tells me not to follow the way of the heathen, sound doctrine, how could this verse harden my heart, Lorin?Luke 2:34 is God telling Mary and Joseph that Jesus will be a "sign that will be spoken against." You accuse me wrongly, I speak against the holiday that is based on pagan not bliblical truth, I do not speak against His Son our Lord. I don't see any math in Luke 1 and 2.
  • Lu2677
    Lorin, All I need to know and understand about our Lord is in His Word, and in my heart by His grace through faith. I don't think I need a Hebrew calendar, to understand His Word. His salvation is for the Jews and Gentiles.

    The new moon in 5BC was April 6th. This is signs written in the Heavens he created.Passover was April 22. Feast of Tabernacles on 4 BC was Oct 4th. As I said Dec 25th is close. Hope you can follow the math in Luke chapter 1 and 2.
