ASV notes on Genesis 1:24-25

שלום חברי

Then once again God started the day by speaking, “God said”, He is using words to create, the words of God is heavenly magic, they are wonders from the mouth of God, He did it all by words. We should pay reverence to the words God spoke, and to the word He speaks.

God said “Let the earth bring forth” He is willing the earth to bring forth, God is communicating with His creation through words, everything is pivoting around words. We should be careful not to misunderstand when God is talking. God is spirit and we are humans, we have to learn to think like God, to see the truth in every word God spoke.

God gave the earth the responsibility to bring forth living creature according to their kind, so the earth is looking after and feeding the living creatures and makes they stay to their kind. What does “to their kind” mean? In verses 24 and 25 God is mentioning to their kind three times, it must be very important. God is explaining to us that a cow is a cow, a goat is a goat and a sheep is a sheep, don’t mess with it.

God also told the earth to bring forth “livestock, crawling things, and wild animals” God made the livestock to be livestock (cows, sheep, goats dogs, cats and so on). If you have a pet it should be among the livestock. And God made crawling things to be crawling things, not livestock and not pets.

God also made wild animals; they are not just animals, but also wild. You don’t put wild animals in cages, they are wild and belong to the “wild” their beauty are in the free, among trees, on mountains or in rivers and they are definitely not pets. God is now halfway through on day six of the creation, all the animals are created, now He is going to create someone to be His friend, to have fellowship with, the man (Humans).
