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.


Discussion for Genesis 1

  • Believer
    Understand the true sabbath. "And the evening and the morning were the first day." and so it goes every day, the day ends in the morning. Also, Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre." Not a set day of the week as man has made it, but according to the moon. Luni-solar calendar.

    To be a Servant: You need to be Called: John 6:44. Ask Forgiveness, you will be Washed by The Blood of The Lamb:1John 1:9,Revelation 1:5. You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Mark 1:8. You will be Changed,you will know:2Corinthians 5:17, Impossible not to. Then you will know in the Beginning God Created all. Whosoever is not in The Book of Life is Cast into The Lake of Fire: Revelation 20;15
  • A disciple
    God is from everlasting to everlasting, with neither beginning of days nor end of life; who inhabits eternity, and is LORD of all time, and all that is! The Scripture Account of Creation is literal; and needs no human acceptance or apology! "In the beginning" simply means, concerning the heavens and the earth and everything in them. God created the heavens and the earth in six days, and rested.
  • Servant of God
    In the beginning was God and the beginning wasn't 6000 years ago for God is eternal, and God wasn't created. Man didn't wash up on shore intact but evolved for there is forensic evidence to support such. Does that make God null and void.? God is Spirit, an altogether different dimension. However we came to be who we are doesn't matter for we are to bend to God's will if we want peace, period

  • Steve morrow
    JOHN 6:63 IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING THE WORDS THAT --- I SPEAK --- UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE 1 PETER 1:23 BEING BORN AGAIN NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE BY THE WORD OF GOD WHICH LIVETH AND ABIDETH FOREVER JOHN 3:34 FOR HE WHOM GOD HATH SENT SPEAKETH THE WORDS OF GOD FOR GOD GIVETH NOT THE SPIRIT BY MEASURE UNTO HIM
