A Warning for the time of the end. There can be no doubt that Enoch’s prophesying was an act of great bravery. Lamech was a powerful and ruthless man. His reaction to the suggestion that he would be brought low by the Lord, coming with ten thousands in his train, would be one of immense and uncontrollable anger. And it would be directed at Enoch, the messenger who spoke God’s word. Enoch’s life was as good as finished. There was no hiding place in the antediluvian world from Lamech and his army for a peace-loving and Godly man like Enoch. Yet the certain death did not occur. God intervened between Enoch and Lamech to bring hope to all who in later generations try to maintain their faith in the midst of a world wholly given over to selfishness and violence.
