Bible Commentary for Genesis 1:25

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 1:25

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.

1:26-28 We have here the second part of the sixth day's work, the creation of man, which we are in a special manner concerned to take notice of. Observe, That man was made last of all the creatures, which was both an honour and a favour to him: an honour, for the creation was to advance from that which was less perfect, to that which was more so and a favour, for it was not fit he should be lodged in the palace designed for him, till it was completely fitted and furnished for his reception. Man, as soon as he was made, had the whole visible creation before him, both to contemplate, and to take the comfort of. That man's creation was a mere signal act of divine wisdom and power, than that of the other creatures. The narrative of it is introduced with solemnity, and a manifest distinction from the rest. Hitherto it had been said, Let there be light, and Let there be a firmament: but now the word of command is turned into a word of consultation, Let us make man - For whose sake the rest of the creatures were made. Man was to be a creature different from all that had been hitherto made. Flesh and spirit, heaven and earth must be put together in him, and he must be allied to both worlds. And therefore God himself not only undertakes to make, but is pleased so to express himself, as if he called a council to consider of the making of him; Let us make man - The three persons of the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, consult about it, and concur in it; because man, when he was made, was to be dedicated and devoted to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. That man was made in God's image, and after his likeness; two words to express the same thing. God's image upon man, consists, In his nature, not that of his body, for God has not a body, but that of his soul. The soul is a spirit, an intelligent, immortal spirit, an active spirit, herein resembling God, the Father of spirits, and the soul of the world. In his place and authority. Let us make man in our image, and let him have dominion. As he has the government of the inferior creatures, he is as it were God's representative on earth. Yet his government of himself by the freedom of his will, has in it more of God's image, than his government of the creatures. And chiefly in his purity and rectitude. God's image upon man consists in knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, #Eph 4:24|; Col 3:10. He was upright, #Ec 7:29|. He had an habitual conformity of all his natural powers to the whole will of God. His understanding saw divine things clearly, and there were no errors in his knowledge: his will complied readily and universally with the will of God; without reluctancy: his affections were all regular, and he had no inordinate appetites or passions: his thoughts were easily fixed to the best subjects, and there was no vanity or ungovernableness in them. And all the inferior powers were subject to the dictates of the superior. Thus holy, thus happy, were our first parents, in having the image of God upon them. But how art thou fallen, O son of the morning? How is this image of God upon man defaced! How small are the remains of it, and how great the ruins of it! The Lord renew it upon our souls by his sanctifying grace! That man was made male and female, and blessed with fruitfulness. He created him male and female, Adam and Eve: Adam first out of earth, and Eve out of his side. God made but one male and one female, that all the nations of men might know themselves to be made of one blood, descendants, from one common stock, and might thereby be induced to love one another. God having made them capable of transmitting the nature they had received, said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth - Here he gave them, A large inheritance; replenish the earth, in which God has set man to be the servant of his providence, in the government of the inferior creatures, and as it were the intelligence of this orb; to be likewise the collector of his praises in this lower world, and lastly, to be a probationer for a better state. A numerous lasting family to enjoy this inheritance; pronouncing a blessing upon them, in the virtue of which, their posterity should extend to the utmost corners of the earth, and continue to the utmost period of time. That God gave to man a dominion over the inferior creatures, over fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air - Though man provides for neither, he has power over both, much more over every living thing that moveth upon the earth - God designed hereby to put an honour upon man, that he might find himself the more strongly obliged to bring honour to his Maker.

    The mixed-up world of hybrid animals ...

    This articles explains how species changes as scientists believe that new species are created by something called evolution although they are suppose to know these concepts that are in this article as it is about hybridization a well known concepts and wk ll taught in universities auth many biologists and it is even learned in first year biology even if you only attend one sinister and flick bit get say 55 or so in biology, I learned it in 1961 and taught Darwin ridiculous when he discovered 21 new specie es of birds on those beautiful Gali islands, with the big turtle that he rode on, how exciting.

    Beautiful pictures and e it explains hybridization really well about those bids what beautiful colours and that old lion or trigger is fantastic poor thing,

    Incidentally Evolution that man develops from apes, is junk and foolishness. Evolution that the mind comes from the brain is foolishness. Universities that teach such things are dubious.
  • Peter on Genesis 1:25
    I enjoy all of the discussions and comments that I read; however, I am only interested in some things at this particular time of my life; and i can research them on the internet over time; but I also want Christian views and then also I thought that over time slowly I would enjoy my remaining years reading comments and slowly learning other favourite things as i was familiar a little bit with when i was a child. Once a man, twice a child; and i have person interest in these things as for example I love the 10 commandments but the problem is i get things mixed up a little; and i don't even know the first one and the most i can find is 9. So, That is my next priority and i was wondering if someone could tell me the first commandments; Is it just Thou shall have no other God before me. or do it continue as I think it do. What is the overall Christian view; and if it is one; what would the tenth one be?

    Let us sum it all up I think the Bible says. and the sole duty of man I think it say somewhere is to serve God. You do your best and that is it. You can't do more. So, no when to fold up and know when to hold up and know when to walk away and know when to fight. That's a gamblers song and you shouldn't gamble and so it sounds good and it was enticing but: but I don't necessarily agree with it,, well maybe a chord or 2 when I learn as i know what chords and notes are, But I do not want to loss my main point. The sole duty of man is to serve God. I an not sure where it is in the Bible but i think that it is there somewhere ,, probably in Jobs
  • Peter on Genesis 1:25
    The point is that people will always question anything that you do, and I spent about 14 years researching autism and I only had a few followers, And nobody On Twitter ever commented on my research, And those who know me, never bothered, and a few people that read it said It was good research, and one highly qualified scientist, even wondered if I had found it in a cave in the Middle East, however I think he was joking, and he did tell me that it would B hard to get It's published without proper references, and it was, so I went on Twitter, but in spite of all of that, As far as I know, no one please my research, and I can understand why as research was always done as I said before by geneticists, Neuroscientist who study the brain only, and evolutionist etc. it was being done for So long, and people have believed them for so long, it is hard To change what you have believed all your lives. So all in all, I have researched many subjects as I'll be in vanity. I think people question everything regardless of how long you research it and regardless of what you find out about it because at the end I am only trying to prove what I said in the beginning of my autism research. And in fact I even came on this site at that time and I said something then in regards to the tree up to knowledge of good and evil, and no one ever responded to it. No one is interested in things that seem too complicated Who is conflicting with something that they believe particularly if it seems strange and weird and so I will not repeat what I said then as I feel the same today however today I have done the research on autism and at the beginning I went to people concerns with autism and I said I think hallucinations causes autism, and he does not know me, but he said you have to prove it first. And I did and I went back and gave them a book which I'm glad he never bothered to read and I never followed me back on,The point is that people will question anything knew but seldom accept it. vanity.

    look into the symptoms of autism and compare to the symptoms of mercury poisoning.

    Thimerasal is another name for mercury used as a preservative in some vaccines.

    Vaccine makers are exempted from lawsuits thanks to congress.

    what kind of incentive do the vaccine makers have for safety if it costs them money and they can not be sued?

    Yes some vaccines have mercury in them.

    I am finish my research on autism of course and Also have a few health problems And poor eyesight and usually don't comment however I will answer briefly but to do justice to your question, it would take maybe two or three pages however I will answer like this. First of all, if these things affect the child to cause autism, or if anything else affects the child to cause all autism they must be a mechanism of action, aka, Mode of Action aka Mode of Development. Briefly, I thought that that Mode was hallucinations as I had hallucinated fpr several days when i was drugged when i was about 30; but in spite of the fact that any of the senses can be hallucinated' no one beloved it; and they said I would have to do research ti prove it. How do you do research to prove the obvious? Even Murphy's Law says that if a thing can happen; it will and when it rains, it will pour. The fact is however i=s that no one has even seen an infant or baby hallucinate...... I wonder why?

    So, I did about 15 years of research; etc.

    Now to answer your question, I have heard of young children having seizures after the immunization shot/ not sure which one? Do i think these things that u refer to cause Autism. Not in all cases for sure; but some maybe. So i don't go there although I do not disagree with you or any of the other anti vaccine people. I do know that Immunization works but I do not know if all those shots in young children are necessary. I do know that most cases are due to an atypical stimulation where just one of the senses are affected; and that plays over and over repetitiously and that always leads to fear development, hallucination and sudden Fight or flight.

    I do not think anyone followed or accepted my research from the beginning, and there was always new research; but these things you referred to, were commented on several times but I have never done any research in that regard. My research was to find the cause and I did that in ever which way,
  • Mishael to Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1:25
    You and I can stand in the same prayer line.

    My eyes especially. Your faith makes me not feel isolated.

    For so long, I had to hear from my niece and her mother how damaged my great nephew is. Negativity drags me down. So I started praying for their whole family! They have 2 other sons with various problems. I try to help my sister to have an improved spiritual life but she refuses to give up self imposed diseases (demonic) and the suitcase of pills; she's a pharmacist without a degree. I can't help her but I can love her and pray for them all.

    Unbelief really hurts, huh?

    I thought my hip was breaking so I was suited up in the armor for days waiting for my neighbor to go to work so I could do some loud spiritual warfare. This is my 2nd day of no pain. I get to exercise tomorrow :D

    I have this sense about you: that Jesus loves you so very much. You know lots. That is Jesus enjoying your company.

    Sometimes too much activity cuts in on the time we spend in His Presence: just sitting and listening for Holy Spirits voice. Hearing a song the Holy Spirit sings.

    I'll pray for you. You pray for my son who blames God for the death of 2 brother-like friends. We'll share testimonies.

    Tell your neighbor I said howdy from Texas.
