What was the Antediluvian World like? Why did God destroy it? Who lived and served God in that time? And what can we learn from the world that perished? All this and so much more lies ahead in Genesis 4-5.
Great Sermon! a truly incredible sermon. We learned so much, as we always do, listening to Dr. Barnett. After I listened I printed out the PDF and reread it. Amazing God, amazing Word.

The Most Incredible History! What a wonderful sermon full of history of the Lost World of Genesis. Who can imagine that it contained some 7 billion people whom the sea shall one day give up. Comparisons between their world and ours; amazing insights into Genesis; this is indeed the most incredible history. Thank you, Dr Barrett.

Great Sermon and very thought provoking! Your observations about the names of the patriarchs is indeed very interesting. The fact that Methusaleh is the oldest person in the Bible is surely meant to draw our attention to â€śHis (Jesus) death shall bringâ€ť and what God was planning to do next. Noah was the sole survivor as God washed away the sin of the world. It clearly pointed to the future when â€śHis (Jesus) death shall bringâ€ť. Jesus is the way of washing away sins without the need for another flood, as God promised! Do you think that the parting of the Red Sea and the subsequent washing away of Pharaohâ€™s army was meant to be a further indication or reminder that God would â€śwash awayâ€ť the sinners. I canâ€™t help but think that God is telling us that the covenant people were separated from the worldly Egyptianâ€™s where a man (Pharoah) was â€śgodâ€ť, just as Jesus will separate us from this world! Pharaoh was just acting like the devil trying to thwart Godâ€™s people in practising their worship (eg Moses wasnâ€™t allowed to go to the wilderness to worship). I couldnâ€™t help but think you purposefully left the sermon hanging, either to get people to go to the next instalment or to encourage them to think. Enoch did not die (raptured) implies that Godâ€™s teaching shall bless us to an end! How amazing!
