God appears to be associating wandering in the Land of NOD with the Apostasy of the church. Typified by Cain being cast away from the presence of God after killing his brother Able. Cain being a type of the unsaved church killing the Body of Christ (Abel) in tribulation through deceit. The Elect were driven to wander, but redeemed by God at the revelation of Christ.
