In this segment, we are going to talk about the second command that God gave to Adam and Eve after they disobeyed his first command.
- God told Adam and Eve that they would be forgiven for their sin if they make children and populate the Earth.
- Adam and Eve listened to God’s command and created their first two children named Cain and Abel.
- After Cain and Abel, Adam and Eve continued to make more children who then had children of their own.
Now the beginning of this story (Cain and Abel) suggests that blood relatives initially populated the world. Brothers were marrying and procreating with their sisters etc. I believe that at the time when this was happening it was safe because it was God’s will. It was the only way to populate the Earth and fulfill God’s second command.
Moving forward, the Bible suggests that Satan will murder the seed of the woman in an attempt to dominate. This tells us that evil will always exist; we will never be able to rid the entire world of evil and injustice. However, God has regenerating power. If Satan murders the first seed of a woman, then God will continue the seed with other children. This sends a positive message, and it means that good will always overcome evil.
The last thing that I want to say in this post is that I firmly believe that God takes evil and turns it into good. So that’s all for today, until next time.
