After the murder of Abel by his brother Cain, there was no godly seed left to continue the human race. This would mean that the messianic prophecy of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as the seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15) was questionable, which is exactly what the devil wanted. However, God in his infinite wisdom gave, Adam and Eve, another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew (Genesis 4:25). Eve named him Seth, which means one who is ‘appointed.’
Points to ponder:
Adam was made in the likeness of God, as a son of God (Luke 3:38), but when he sinned, sin and death entered the world and the Godly race of mankind could no longer continue. Another seed had to be appointed. It is Jesus Christ, the last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45) who is the Appointed seed of the woman (Galatians 3:16), by whom the Godly race of mankind can continue (1 Thessalonians 5:9), because the Bible says that, to all who believe in Jesus and to as many as those who receive Jesus, God gives them the power to be called the children (seeds) of God (John 1:12). Is Jesus, the Appointed seed of God, sown into our life, so that he can germinate and permeate our entire being – all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, and all our strength? (Mark 12:30)
Genesis 4:25 (KJV)
25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 (KJV)
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
