Continuing straight on from part two, what was behind Cain’s murderous act, what was his motive? Most people believe it was just the evil act of a jealous brother whose offering to the Lord was not acceptable, but what made it unacceptable? Was it just because it was not an animal that made it unacceptable or was there something else, and were the actual offerings of Cain symbolic of a deeper malaise within Cain, for we must not forget who his father was.
OK we know, too, that there was an argument between the two half-brothers but what was the argument about?
Gen 4:8 (KJV) And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Here the word ‘talked’ is meaningless KJV understatement on the part of the translators. Cain and Abel were arguing ferociously, but what about? Well, we have a good idea, because it was the subject of sacrifices or religious observances, those that were acceptable to the Lord and those that were not. So what was unacceptable about Cain’s offering? Quite simply, it contained no blood, and it was one made by his hands. He had to plant the crops he offered, as opposed to Abel’s which was made totally without hands by God. Yashua Anointed (The Lord Jesus Christ) is the Stone or Rock (please note, all you Roman Catholics) hewn without hands. Cain’s was a tarnished offering, an insulting offering, and Abel’s was unspotted, perfect, a lamb of his firstlings, a type of the Passover Lamb with shed blood that soaked into the ground. There was something else too; the spiritual dimension to all this, for be aware, the spirit of Cain is still with us today, as is his name and as are his descendants, but what is that spirit, and how can a spirit, six thousand years old, have influence over us today? Again, quite simply, because it was the spirit of temporal and/or of man made political power and religious authority.
At this moment in time a descendant of Cain has recently stood in the American elections for the Republican Party – Senator McCain. Mac means ‘son of’, so there we have him, a son of Cain, hoping to be made President of the USA. Then we have Dick Cheney. If we harden the ‘ch’ as in the Chaldean tongue, what we have in reality is Dick Cainey. Yet another descendant of Cain as vice president of the US; how does that make you feel folks? Dan Quayle too is another Cainite name. They seem to like power, these descendants of Cain, do they not!!??
Having digressed, but keeping with the above theme, I’ll return to the historical account. Cain wanted to rule the roost in both areas of influence and stamp his authority on everything. All politics and religion – THE SYSTEM, THE MATRIX or THE AGE or what the Holy Scriptures call The World – the Old New World Order started here with Cain, and there was no way he was going to allow his upstart son of man half brother to have any authority over him. Cain, don’t forget, was a demonic hybrid – a half heavenly serpent being and half manly – a human being, so no doubt considered himself far superior to his earthly, fully man, half brother. This spirit was Satan’s spirit, imparted to Cain by his father The Devil. Satan knew God’s plan would eventually mean resurrected men to Spirit status, a status that would give resurrected men authority over him in the future. The Holy Scriptures bears this out when Paul said to the Corinthians:
1 Cor 6:3 (KJV) Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?
Satan, therefore, was going to do all in his power to stop mankind attaining his ultimate prize – life eternal with authority over angels, for us as resurrected Spiritual beings in the Kingdom of God. His evil plan to thwart the progress of mankind, therefore, began with the murder of Abel through his son Cain and with this evil act comes the infamous Mark of Cain:
Genesis 4:15 (KJV) And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
The question that now needs answering is WHY!!?? Why did the Lord spare Cain, for without any doubt it was a let off, if only a temporary let off. Under the Law (for the Law in Spirit was in force before Moses) of the Old Covenant he should have been slain immediately and in the same way as he had slain his brother – an eye for an eye etc., so why did Yashua Anointed let him off? For the simple reason that everything is to God’s Glory and His Glory being ultimately served through His plan for mankind, which Satan was never going to stop – try as he will. In order to comprehend God’s ways, we must understand this fundamental of fundamentals. All the events in the narrative of the OT had to come to pass, in order to bring us to and necessitate the Lord Jesus Christ’s birth into this world and then His sacrifice and His resurrection. This ‘Mark’ that Cain received is one and the same as the Mark of the Beast in Revelation, for it is the mark of human beings, as well the mark of ‘a’ human being – Cain, and I will deal with this in more detail later.
We must also remember as well, that our ways are not God’s ways; our logic and reasoning are not God’s logic and reasoning. Our ideas of logic and reasoning are based solely upon our puffed up “we think we know what’s best” vanity and pride, unless of course, we are Born Again and have a close brotherly relationship with the Yashua Anointed who then teaches us His ways or His logic. Please see my series of articles on “Theology and Theologians or Bible Intellectualism and Bible Intellectuals – parts 1-5” at Ezine Articles, for a full explanation of how man’s pride and vanity, through his own logic and reasoning, has created nothing but blasphemous error. These articles will prove to you that our ways are nothing to do with God’s ways, and, in turn, how this mindset, a mindset of philosophical intellectual religion and reasoning has separated man from his Creator. Just as an aside, Philo from whence we get philosophy was a Canaanite Jew and therefore a descendant of Cain. Again, more of this later in my next article.
Getting back to the story line we then have God punishing Cain for Abel’s murder, but with a punishment Cain cannot bear. How is it a punishment he cannot bear? He cannot bear it because man’s environment was to be cursed by God a second time. Man lost the beautiful environment of the Garden of Eden through Adam and Eve’s sin and he was about to loose the fertility of the earth as a whole. The Lord was going to curse the earth so that it would no longer yield crops and all men would know that Cain was to blame and would therefore seek him out to kill him:
Gen 4:12 (KJV) When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
There we have it, Cain as fugitive on the run from mankind for the rest of his days and, as a poverty stricken vagabond at that, unsurprisingly, was more than he could bear. So Cain pleads for mercy and the Lord hears him:
Gen 4:13-15 (KJV) And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. 15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
Again, there we have it and with Cain admitting that his face will be hid from the Lord and his life not worth a dime. So the Lord puts a mark on Cain protecting him from mankind lest any should attempt to kill him. Now this is all very interesting I hear you say, but if we have modern descendants of Cain still with us today, do they still carry the same mark? Yes, of course they do. How do we know that? Easy, they get away with blue murder and never get apprehended. Our ex-Prime Minister was nick named Teflon Tony, for it seemed nothing would stick to him. Crisis followed crisis and he appeared untouchable and of course in a sense he was, and still is. Both he, and Bush, was highly suspect in many of their escapades and dealings, but has anyone charged them with a single offence? No, no way, not a chance. Why? Why, because of the Mark of Cain. Mr Blair was also nick-named B. Liar, which is a play on the name Belial, one of Satan’s princes, the sons of whom are known more commonly as ‘vile scoundrels’. Doesn’t that just about sum up all politicians? I reckon.
Finally, we then have Cain’s genealogy from Enoch:
Gen 4:18-22 (KJV) And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. 19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. 21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. 22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
Now this Naamah is reputed to have been Noah’s wife, but the Holy Scriptures again go cold on this topic, for Mrs Noah is never referred to by name but she is mentioned in the Book of Jasher. There is other evidence, too, i.e. that the name of Cain is mentioned post flood, though, via the name of a tribe of people known as the Kenites and in the Hebrew language their name is a derivation of Cain. In the Hebrew it’s pronounced qey-niy or Kay-nee and Cain is pronounced qayin or Kay-yin so we can see the connection. We then have the name Canaan which is pronounced ken-na’an or Ken-ah-an. So as we can plainly see all these people are related and originate from Cain. This means that Cain’s race did not die out with the flood, it continued, but how? All will be revealed in my next article. I will also be dealing with the subject of the giants who lived upon the earth at that time, so stay with it.
