1. God said, “Let us make humans in our image in our likeness”
No other creature was created this way.
2. He put man to sleep.
3. I believe that the woman would of looked like what the man wanted instead of Gods creation.

God created man and woman in his own image no other creature was created them.
What did God do when He was ready to create woman in Genesis 2:21-22?
God put Adam in a deep sleep and remove his rib to create the woman.
What do you think woman might have looked like if man had not been put to sleep?
Eve would have look the way Adam imaging vs god created glory.

Oops, I missed question 3: To me, that’s hard to imagine, but kind of funny at the same time, because as strong as they are, they do pain much worse than us. So, it’s no telling if we’d even exist. But give them a visual, the beauty of their ROI, and you may get a willing vessel
Benita Edwards On May 24, 2020 at 3:37 pm
26a Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. No, God only made man in this design
v21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come over the man, and he slept. God took one of his ribs and closed the flesh at that place. v22 Then the Lord God made the rib He had taken from the man into (Benita) a woman and brought her to the man. (Himself. Unless, in His plan there’s a man). I want what God has for me, because sometimes I just don’t know what I want.

1.) How did God create man in Genesis 1:26? And, God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
2.) Was any other creature created this way? no, only male and female
3.) What did God do when He was ready to create woman in Genesis 2:21-22? The Lord cause a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribsm and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
4.) What do you think woman might have looked like if man had not been put to sleep?
…I think woman would have looked more physically attractive to the eye of man, and lacked the intricate qualities which God placed in woman.

Maybe in the image that man of what he thought he liked she would have been something that pleased his eyes I agree with this chapter he would have given her more breast more butt longer hair we would have all looked the same way he is an inventor not a creator. In Psalm 139:4 David praised God because he knew that he was fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful I know that full well. God fearfully and wonderfully made us man couldn’t have done that.
Dr. Merle Ray On May 17, 2020 at 5:11 pm
You’re so right, Minister Evelyn!
brendab On May 17, 2020 at 7:15 pm
Yes I believe that man’s idea would be totally different than the Father
Evelyn Wilson On May 17, 2020 at 4:39 pm
So the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall into upon Adam and he slept.Then he took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh.Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, He made into a man .
Evelyn Wilson On May 17, 2020 at 4:25 pm
God made man in his own image and likeness in the image of God he created them male and female. When He created Adam he reproduced Himself, God gave Adam his own authority over everything on this earth and crowned him with his (God) glory. Psalm 8:4-6
4.What is man that you are mindful of him and the son of man that you attend to him. 5. For you have made him a little lower then the angels and crowned him with glory and honor.

Powerful, Elder Evelyn!

The Bible tells us the creation of man was formed out of the dust of the ground and he breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.
God said let’s make mankind in our image and likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, over all wild animals and all creatures that crawl the earth.
When God was ready to created woman he cast Adam into a deep sleep, and from Adam’s rib he made woman.
From Man God formed Woman!
I am not really sure but our God is Awesome…anything he creates is beautiful…

1. God spoke man into being of His likeness and His image.Then He breathed into him the breathe of life. The animals
creatures were not created like mankind.
2. God put Adam in a deep sleep, took one of his ribs out of him, and created a woman out of the the rib.
3. I just believe she would have been beautiful.
Jacqueline Williams On May 9, 2020 at 3:10 pm
– God created man in God’s image and likeness with complete authority over all living things and over all the earth.
– God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. God then took a rib or part of his side and then closed it up. God took what was removed and made the woman. God then brought woman to Adam.
– I say it would have depended on the culture: the making of woman would have been physically inspired if man had not been put to sleep.

* * * How did God create man in Genesis 1:26? In His (God) own image. Was any other creature created this way? Only male and female.
* * * What did God do when He was ready to create woman in Genesis 2:21-22? Cause a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh. The Lord God took that rib and made woman and brought her unto Adam. Not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected and near his heart to be beloved.
* * * What do you think woman might have looked like if man had not been put to sleep? Probably differently because man as we know them to you are visual, and they definitely would have had an input or say so in the matter, lol.
Deborah Stevens On May 2, 2020 at 10:52 pm
1. God “formed”man from the dust of the ground and “breathed” the breath of life into him.Woman (female man) existed as well. God spoke everything else into existence. 2. God put Adam to sleep before He cut open Adam’s flesh to remove Adam’s rib to make the woman.
3. Dr. Merle’s description of men being visually-stimulated creatures caused me to understand that it was necessary that God designed man’s help mate because man’s desires would have been all over the place.

I really don’t know?

(AMP)- 21- And the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and while he slept , He took one of his ribs or a part of his side and closed up the flesh. 22- And the rib or part of his side which the Lord God had taken from the man He built up and made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
brendab On April 22, 2020 at 9:15 am
(AMP)- God said Let Us make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let the have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air , the beasts and over everything that creeps upon the earth.
