Summary: With this message I want to contrast the difference between living a life away from the presence of the Lord, and living a life in the abiding presence of the Lord as illustrated in the lives of Enoch and Eve.

Title: “Enoch and Eve”

Can you imagine the dinner conversation that Adam and Eve must have had the day that she taken of the forbidden. Adam must have asked Eve about the Devil. What is he like?

What Eve might have said to her husband?

Satan is

So Wonderful?

(Gen 3:6 KJV) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

The terrible reality of sin is that at first it seems so wonderful. The fruit was pleasant to the eyes. There is pleasure in sin… for a season. Eve must have told Adam how wonderful her day had been with the serpent in the midst of the garden.

Satan is

So Powerful?

(Rom 7:15 KJV) For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

(Rom 7:23 KJV) But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

(Rom 7:24 KJV) O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Why did God allow Satan to seem so “wise?” The serpent seemed to be an expert on all of the subjects, including God.

At first sin seems wonderful. But all too soon, sin becomes addictingly powerful! I am sure that Eve had no intentions of ever eating the forbidden fruit. But the fruit became irresistible to her.

I am convinced that those addicted to various forms of sin, would rather not participate in their failure, but the addiction of sin is too powerful for them to control. They have become a servant to sin.

Satan is

So Hurtful?

(Rom 7:11 KJV) For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

Think of how hurtful sin can be. Adam no longer could enjoy the beauty of God’s natural garden, he would have to work by the sweat of his face. Eve’s first children came as twins. That had to have hurt. Can you imagine how difficult it must have been to have attended to the funeral of their murdered Son, Able? Especially knowing that it was their oldest Son, Cain, who had been the murderer?

And now the contrasting Story of Enoch:

(Gen 5:21 KJV) And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

(Gen 5:22 KJV) And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

(Gen 5:21 KJV) And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

(Gen 5:22 KJV) And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

(Gen 5:23 KJV) And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

(Gen 5:24 KJV) And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Can you imagine What Enoch might have said to his wife at the dinner table when she might have asked of him how that he had spent his day?

Jesus is

So Wonderful!

(1 John 1:3 (quickview)  KJV) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
