And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the Lord. Genesis 4:25-26 NKJV
Sin and death entered the world when Adam and Eve disobeyed God. Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. Their son Cain killed his brother Abel. At this point the future did not look very promising for mankind.
Through disobedience they separated themselves from the love and blessing of God. They could not dwell in His presence. Sin and death replaced blessing and prosperity. How could they be fruitful and multiply when their only surviving son was a murderer?
Why did God allow Adam and Eve to sin? That is a question only He can answer. On the day we meet Him face to face perhaps He will allow us to ask. For now we must focus on what we do know. Not everything that happens in the world today is God’s will!
God will not be denied. All things in the Heavens above and on the Earth below are subject to the Lord’s control and authority. God’s good and perfect plan for His creation will prevail.
God gave another son to Adam and Eve. The children of Seth began to call out to God. They lived outside the Garden of Eden. They lived outside of blessing and protection of God. They were born separated from God, but turned to Him out of a sincere desire to know Him!
Enoch the man who pleased God and was taken before He died was a descendant of Seth. Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior was a descendant of Seth in His humanity!
You and I were born outside of the protection and blessing of God. We were born separated from God. If you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior it is because you called on the name of the Lord out of a sincere desire to know Him.
The God of new beginnings answered your cry. He brought you back into His blessing and protection!
God wants to use you to bring other people back into His blessing and protection. He wants to use you to bring forth a godly lineage of people to love the Lord and be loved by Him!
Call on Jesus to bring healing and restoration into your life if you need it. Call out to Jesus for mercy and forgiveness if that is what you need. Call out to Jesus for all your needs!
Jesus will give you what you need when you need it if you call out to the Lord out of a sincere desire to know Him!
