V. 1 Compare this verse with Matt. 1:11The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (Matthew 1:1). – Gen. 5 is a record of the fallen descendants of the first Adam; whereas Matthew brings to us the book of the generations of Jesus Christ. Adam and Christ are the two heads. We are born into the first; but we must be born again (John 3:77Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. (John 3:7)) into the second. Through Adam we die, through Christ we are made alive Rom. 5:2121That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:21). Which family are you in? Eight times in this chapter, we read "and he died". But one man here never died. What does it say about him? One of these days, the Lord Jesus is going to come in the air, and will call every believer out of this world. Every unbeliever will be left behind. Enoch is a picture of all those believers who will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air without having died-1 Thess. 4:16-1816For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16‑18).
