Outline of contents
Adam and Eve were now in exile outside the garden. God’s paradise home was out of bounds to mankind, and remained so until it vanished ‑ perhaps in the great flood of Noah’s day. God stationed cherubim as guards (Genesis 3.24), together with a fiery sword which may (like the pillar of cloud and fire that escorted His people in the wilderness) have been a visible display of God’s presence.

Satan’s dark kingdom now had a bridgehead on earth. Mankind found itself under Satan’s power, dominated by “the ruler of this world” (see John 12.31, 14.30).

Sin degrades and corrupts mankind until all hope seems lost – but not to God.  Right after the Fall, He promises a Seed that will deal the deathblow to Satan.  Through these ancient godless times, God preserves the ancestors of this Seed and begins to unfold His plan to rescue mankind.

From Abel’s murder, through the Flood and Babel, we follow the story to the day when God calls Abraham to follow Him. We’ll also sketch God’s strategy and actions in history as He counteracts Satan’s plans for this world.  Finally, we’ll review the whole of Bible history – the six ages that take us from the age of innocence before the Fall to the time when Jesus returns to Earth in glory.

Part 5 of the Big Journey is available as a fourteen-page PDF document illustrated in full colour throughout.  Click on the PDF icon at the top of this page to download it.
