Genesis 4:24-5:32 Boring Genealogies? Part Two
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.i>
We now switch back to Adam and his line, the Messianic line. The words "to call upon" could be translated as "to profane". As we study the account of Noah, let the Spirit guide you to which is more correct and compliments the account.
I normally don't include this many verses to read, but it is necessary.
This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat [a son] in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos: And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died. And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan: And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died. And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel: And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died. And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared: And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died. And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch: And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
Wouldn't it be nice to have that kind of relationship, daily walking with the Almighty G-d? It is possible.
And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him. And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech: And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died. And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son: And he called his name Noah, saying, This [same] shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed. And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died. And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
As I mentioned in the last blog entry, it's very important to understand the meaning of the names in order to recieve G-ds message.
appointed, as an afirmation
mortal as in temporary existance, incurable
the blessed God
descend, come down
his death shall bring
comfort, peaceful rest
If we put it together, we get:
Man is indeed appointed an incurable mortal (temporary) sorrow, but the Blessed G-d shall descend and teach that his death shall bring the despairing, rest and peace.
So cool. We have the first time the gospel of G-d shows up in a cryptic form that only the beloved of G-d will receive as a prophecy of G-ds salvation plan. However, the complete message is when we put the genealogy of Adam and Cain together.
Get over your sorrow quickly and teach the hidden things of those who are in love with and belong to G-d. That is, the despairing shall have a covering or mark that should be displayed with great joy. Rejoice descendants of Cain, be at peace. Indeed, man is appointed an incurable mortal (temporary) sorrow, but the Blessed G-d shall descend and teach that his death shall bring the despairing, rest and peace.
You see the message is not only for the beloved of G-d but all who will come and accept the blood offering of G-d. G-d is offering his blood covering for all mankind. All we have to do is accept it.
In the same way Moses lifted up the serpent in the dessert, so shall the Son of Man be lifted up. That whosoever looks upon him and believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life, a covering. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever looks to him and believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
