The Godly Line: Through the Flood - Genesis 5-10
Last time we saw in Genesis 4 a snapshot of the Cainite civilization. They worshipped at the shrines of abundance in art and technology. Their unredeemed mindset brought with it all sorts of abuse and violence. Life was devalued. Vengeance became exponential. Powerful men arose who fancied themselves to be the captains of their own souls. And the world was becoming a place where God was no longer welcome. BUT . . . as this fourth chapter closes, we find the author returning to the beginning where Eve births another son – Seth. From him emerges a godly line that began to proclaim the name of the Lord as the captain of their salvation.
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.”
