BIBLE STUDY Genesis 5
by Ella Rose Mast
Verse 1:--THIS IS THE BOOK OF THE GENERATIONS OF Adam, In the day God created man in the likeness of God made he him.
Verse 2:--Male and female created he them also, and blessed them and called their name Adam and Eve in the day that they were formed.
Here we find that this Bible then is the Book of the Race of Adam. In the first four chapters of Genesis you have had the story of what you needed to know to understand this Bible. You have now had the two main opponents of this story--Lucifer as the old Serpent, the devil or Satan, and his family in their drive to stop the building in earth by this Adamic Race, the KINGDOM OF YAHWEH. We see how the Adamic family was picked up and set in place in the physical, cleansed and started on their path in their destiny. Always they would have to contend with Lucifer and his family and especially the children of the lineage of Cain. Thus you have here a listing of Cain's posterity so that you would understand this.
The old books then pick up the story as the migration came out of that High area, and Chapter 5 is just an outline as to the lineage of Adam to bring you to Noah. Then on down to Abraham later, but remember these men also begat other children. Thus here were many more Adamites than those listed in the Bible.
Adam was the son of God (Luke 3:38) and although he fell and in the process he became totally physical, still he lived 930 years, but he was 130 years before everything was straightened out so that he became the father of a son whom he called Seth, and this son would inherit the spirit of YAHWEH AND BE ABLE TO PASS THAT SEED FORWARD THUS THE RACE COULD BE BUILT. We do not have to much record of the other children of Adam and Eve who were born, except that there had to be others between Cain and Seth, because Seth would have to be after the seventh gestation so that the womb was cleansed. Then after Seth there were others and daughters as well, for Seth would marry a sister to start the race forward. This would be allowed to start the race and perhaps other brothers would do the same, but now the race would be started and soon there were many Adamites, and cousins would also marry.
In the old books Adam had many sons and daughters, and the race grew fast.
Verse 4:--And all the day of Adam after he begat Seth were 800 years and he begat sons and daughters.
Verse 5:--And all the days that Adam lived were 930 years and he died. As you noticed none of these particulars were given in the Cain line, only that he had sons and daughters to perpetuate his line.
Verse 6:--And Seth lived 105 years and he begat Enos."
Verse 7:--And Seth lived after he begat Enos 807 years and he begat sons and daughters.
Verse 8:--And all the days of Seth were 912 years and he died.
Verse 9:--And Enos lived 90 years and begat Cainan.
Verse 10:--And Enos lived after he begat Cainan 815 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 11:--And all the day of Enos were 905 years and he died.
Verse 12:--And Cainan lived 70 years and begat Mahalaleel:
Verse 13:--And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel 840 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 14:--And the days of Cainan were 910 years and he died.
Verse 15:--And Mahalaleel lived 65 years and he begat Jared.
Verse 16-17-& all the day of Mahalaleel were 895 years and he died.
Verse 18:--And Jared lived an hundred 62 years and begat Enoch.
Verse 19:--And Jared lived after he begat Enoch 800 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 20:--And all the days of Jared were 962 years and he died.
Verse 21:--And Enoch lived 65 years and begat Methuselah. The meaning of the name Enoch is teaching.
Verse 22:--and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah 300 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 23:--All the Days of Enoch were 365 years.
Verse 24:--And Enoch walked with God and he was not; for God took him. Enoch walked with God almost literally as did Adam before the fall, and he did not die as Elijah did not die. Enoch was also the 7th, from Adam--and seven was in the symbolism of numbers. The number of the Adamites for the kingdom.
Verse 25:--And Methuselah lived 65 years and begat Lamech.
Verse 26:--And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech 830 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 27:--And all the days of Methuselah were 895 years.
Verse 28:--And Lamech lives 182 years and begat a son.
Verse 29:--And called his name Noah, saying, this same shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.
Verse 30:--And Lamech lived after he begat Noah 595 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 31:--And all the days of Lamech were 777 years, and he died. The number 777 means an Adamic perfect man.
Verse 32:--And Noah was 500 years old and begat Shem, Ham and Japhet. This does not mean that he begat them all at the same time, for the old books say that the daughter of Enoch also 500 years old was the mother of Japhet and Shem. Does this mean that women who also lived so much longer also had children for many more years than today? Japhet was supposed to be the oldest son and then Shem, and it does not list the mother of Ham who was younger.
This chapter is just giving you the list of Adamic men picked for a definite purpose in this lineage of Adam. But there were many more of them not listed which were also considered Adamic men and God's Israel.
This listing is to bring you down to Noah and another great event in the story of the Adamic race. From Noah then on down to Abraham for the story of One Man's Destiny.
