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.

    Genisis 1: on day six Christ Jesus created male and female animals and mankind, and they multiplied. Genisis 2: God created Adam and put him in eden wich is in heaven and after that eve from adam. Yes there is a difference between the 6th day mankind and Adam and Eve , yes the order of things are different from genisis 1 and genisis 2 . Cain married one of the 6th day created women and also in genisis 6: we see more sons of God taking wives of the daughters of men, again pointing out that there is a deference between the two . We see that in scripture if we ask God and believe he will answer he explains or will help you understand what he has already explained. Adam is the son of God as seen in the book of Luke,Adam lived almost a thousand years and his descendants lived several hundred years, and 6th day man was given 120 years. The union of both created giants as seen in the scripture also.hope this helps.
