We trace Cain’s descendants from the time of his banishment to the East and see a trend of moral declension and growing depravity which ultimately led to the judgment of God in the Flood. In contrast, we look at the godly line established in Seth and see what may well have been the first revival of religion as his son Enosh is born and men begin to call upon the Lord.

Finally, we consider Enoch, a man of great personal piety who was spared death by God. We see him as a prophet and realize that even then he was prophesying events such as the second coming of Christ. In his translation into heaven we see God declaring His intention that the redemption in Christ would be a redemption of the whole man - soul and body. We are encouraged to pray that God would send revival in our day as we increasingly slip into a condition reminiscent of the line of Cain.
