Dear friends, this radio talk is a shortened version of a sermon I gave at Church of the Messiah, Ottawa. The sermon was part of a series of Sermons on the first 11 chapters of Genesis. The series was called, God: The Creator And Sustainer Of All Things.

The Presence of Hope 
During the Reign of Death

Prayer:
Father, please pour out your Holy Spirit upon us as we read your Word. Lead us to Jesus. Lead us to yourself. And we ask this in Jesus’ name. AMEN.

Scripture Refrence:

Adam's Descendants to Noah

This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man[a] when they were created. When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died.

Footnotes:

1.       Genesis 5:2 Hebrew adam
______________________________

Notes:
    1. Adam sought to begin the reign of humans, but he launched the reign of death.
    2. Even though death reigns, there is hope. Human beings are still made in the image of God.
    3. Even though death reigns, there is hope. God wants us to call out to Him for rest and relief.
    4. God stymied death for Enoch. Jesus Christ defeated death.
    5. God stymied death for Enoch. Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection dealt with your sin and mine.
    6. Only Enoch benefited from his deliverance. The benefits of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection were always meant to be given to all who asked with humble faith.
    7. Enoch’s deliverance gave a glimmer of hope. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is God’s vindication of the person and work of Jesus as humanity’s true hope.
    8. “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes....” Romans 1:16
    9. Father in Heaven, please pour out the Holy Spirit upon me, and make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel, living with hope as I live for Your glory. In Jesus Name, AMEN.
