Genesis Chapter 5

 

     This chapter five is 99.9% the lineage of Adam. That may just seem to be a lot of boring information for some but there are jewels of information within it and we’re going to search them out and take them in. Absorb them. I think our soul and spirit would like our physical mind to enrich itself this morning.

 

     You do know that our soul and spirit knows this information already, don’t you? Most assuredly. The only caveat is that Father won’t allow this knowledge to pass through to us in this age. Why not? Because we are to be innocent, without knowledge, of anything that our soul and spirit has experienced in the past heaven/earth age.

 

     Father does not want that knowledge to influence our decisions in this heaven/earth age. Why not? Because it’s critical that we start with base one and build from there. Our knowledge base is not in our minds, at this time, but in that little Book known as the Bible. Everything we need to know about the first heaven/earth age is in that little Book.

 

     What did Father tell St. John to do with that little Book?

 

     Revelation 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

 

     Revelation 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

 

     Revelation 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. KJV

 

    Eat it, devour it, take in as much knowledge as you possibly can understand and hold on to. Our memory banks are not front-loaded from the git-go, we start with register one and build from there.

 

     Alright, chapter 5. (As boring as it might be.)

 

     Let’s look at the first three verses first….

 

     Genesis 5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

 

     This is the family of Adam and all his people, up to the time of Noah.

 

     Genesis 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

 

     He created Adam and Eve. This is not talking about the sixth-day creation, it’s talking about this special race of people through which our Lord would come.

 

     Genesis 5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:

 

     Whoa! Wait a minute! Adam lived 130 years and only had ONE son, and his name was Seth? No, that’s impossible because we have already read about Cain and Abel, so what about them?

 

     The answer is really quite simple. Able was murdered by Cain and therefore would not be included in the genealogical record of Adam.

 

     CAIN IS NOT LISTED BECAUSE HIS FATHER WAS SATAN, NOT ADAM!

 

     Genesis 5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:

 

     In the 670 years AFTER Seth was born, Adam fathered many other sons and daughters. We’re not interested or concerned with them. We want to know what happened to Cain and Able and why they are not listed in Adam’s family history.

 

     And we know why: Abel was murdered, and Cain was fathered by Satan. The Devil.

 

     Imagine preaching that sermon in any First Baptist Church of _____, in any town or city in these United States! You fill in the blank. It doesn’t make any difference which town or city you choose. For a preacher to tell a congregation of Baptists or Episcopalians or whatever denomination you choose, for him to tell the people that Satan had sexual relations with Eve in the Garden of Eden would be tantamount to a righteous hanging of this preacher at noon in front of the courthouse.

 

     But the truth is there, in the Biblical records, and you can believe it or not. It’s up to you. Just remember this….when you die and transition into your spiritual body and the Bible becomes clear to you and you see that this is the truth, you’re going to say…Darn, that ‘ole boy was right!

 

     Of course, that’s not my purpose here, to prove that I’M right. I’m here to tell you that the Bible is right.

 

     Genesis 5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

 

     And Adam died. Let’s go down to verse 18.

 

     Genesis 5:6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:

 

     Genesis 5:7 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:8 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:9 And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:

 

     Genesis 5:10 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:11 And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:12 And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel:

 

     Genesis 5:13 And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:14 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:15 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

 

     Genesis 5:16 And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:17 And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:

 

     We’re going to touch on this verse because of Enoch, and I’ve put a small chart together to better explain to you that names are important and in Satan’s attempt to confuse some of us, he uses some of the names in Adam’s genealogy.

 

          Cain’s Genealogy ends at Gen. 4:24              Adam’s Genealogy begins at Gen. 5:1

 

                Genesis 4:17    Enoch                                          Genesis 5:18    Enoch

                Genesis 4:18    Methusael                                    Genesis 5:21    Methuselah

                Genesis 4:18    Lamech                                        Genesis 5:25    Lamech

 

     Enoch was a special person to our Lord and Father. Let’s go down to verse 22…

 

     Genesis 5:19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

 

     Genesis 5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Enoch was special to our Father, in the same sense that out of the seven churches in Revelation, there were only two that pleased our Lord and what was the reason for that? They taught about the synagogue of Satan and Satan’s coming in his role of Antichrist. That’s what Enoch was teaching, even way back then. He taught about the synagogue of Satan.

 

     Let’s go to verse 24…

 

     Genesis 5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

 

     Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

 

     And he was not. What does that mean? It means that he was taken up to heaven without his flesh and blood body experiencing a physical death. The term is transfigured. Throughout Scripture, there were only four people that were transfigured: our Lord, Moses, Elijah, and Enoch.

 

     That puts Enoch in some really special company. Why would Father take the soul and spirit and earthly body up to heaven with Him? I didn’t think that flesh and blood could enter into heaven?

 

     Well, no one knows what happens to the flesh and blood body when taken off this earth, that’s up to our Father, but if we look closely at Moses, we find that even Satan disputed with Michael over the bones of Moses and couldn’t find them and we can read of that in the book of Jude…

 

     Jude 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. KJV

 

     So, a simple answer as to why Father would take the flesh and blood body of a person off of this earth and not allow it to be buried, would be to keep Satan from messing around with the remnants, the bones, for whatever HIS purposes would be.

 

     Let’s go to verse 32.

 

     Genesis 5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:

 

     Genesis 5:26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:

 

     Genesis 5:29 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.

 

     Genesis 5:30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:

 

     Genesis 5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

 

     Genesis 5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth. KJV

 

     The name Noah means rest in the Hebrew tongue and because our Father promised that all of us would work and sweat our way through this life, that Noah might bring us some rest and so he did.

 

     Well, that’s chapter 5. As I said, most of it is genealogy but we did find a nugget that reinforces our knowledge that Cain is not the child of Adam but rather a child of Satan. There might be a lot of people that would disagree with that statement but it’s true.

 

     “Well, how in the world can a spirit or a spook impregnate a woman?”

 

     It’s easier to understand if we backtrack a little bit. How are we made? In the image of God and the angels.

 

     Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. KJV

 

     Which means that we look like our Father and the angels in every respect, inside and out.

 

     “Well, do you mean that angels look just like us?”

 

     Yep, that’s what I’m saying…

 

     Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. KJV

 

     If we were eating a meal with an angel and didn’t know it, that must mean that they look just like us, does it not? Manna is called angel’s food and yet the Israelite children ate it for 40 years as they wandered through the wilderness.

 

     And as far as the impregnation part, we all know what type of equipment it takes to perform that function and every reference to angels or the host of heaven in the first heaven/earth age indicates that all were male because they are referred to as the sons of God

 

     Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. KJV

 

     I hope that that satisfies that argument.

 

     Hang around. Chapter six in coming next. Don’t miss it.
