“When God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.” —Genesis 5:1
“Adam was one hundred and thirty years old when he begot a son in his likeness, after his image; and he named him Seth.” —Genesis 5:3
Adam’s descendants lived to be almost a thousand years old. Death was not reigning with the vengeance we see today. Nevertheless, death was increasing and life decreasing. This chapter begins with Adam living 930 years; it ends with Lamech dying after 777 years.
Prayer: Father, I claim Jesus’ victory over death and accept His gift of eternal life.
Promise: “Then Enoch walked with God, and he was no longer here, for God took him.” —5:24
