|* Genesis 4
Genesis 4 is another important Chapter in Father’s Word as; it is the Chapter and story or history of Cain. Yes, Abel is mentioned as, he was both born and murdered in this chapter but, is in reality he is only mentioned or alive in seven verses, enough time for him to have come of age to offer Offerings to Father. The rest of the chapter is all about the genealogy of Cain and his offspring. We had learned in Genesis 3 that, he was not Adam’s son, and by his genealogy being separate and in this Chapter and not in with Adam’s in our next Chapter, this puts the dot in the exclamation point so to speak.
So without further ado; let’s get right into it. But, before we do, let’s first go to Father and ask Him for His Blessings on our Study of His Word: “Father, we come to you right now to thank you for inviting us to Your table in order that we might be able to partake of and receive Your Spiritual Meat, and Father, as we prepare to dine on the sustenance which sustains our inner man, we ask that You Oh LORD open our ears and eyes, that we might be able to hear and see your Truths, open our hearts and minds and prepare us in order that we may receive Your Truth. We Pray for Your Understanding of Your Word, we seek Your Knowledge in Your Word, and most importantly Father, we Pray for and desire Your Wisdom from Your Word, in Jesus’ Precious name we Pray, thank You Father, Amen.”
Genesis 4:1-26 AFTER THE
4:1-16 Cain and Abel.
Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew his wife Eve; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, “I have gotten a man from the LORD.” —> We have to go to the Hebrew manuscripts to truly understand this verse as; the English translators didn’t quite get the translation correct. In the Hebrew it reads “ish eth YHVH” meaning: — “with the help of YHVH I have bare a man.” YHVH being יהוה, YHVH, or Yahveh—our English translators wrote Father’s name out “Jehovah” in our King James 1611 Bibles—the Sacred and Personal name of Father and is His most frequent designation, occurring over 6,800 times. While ELOHIM is God—Father—in His role of Creator of all things, YHVH is God in covenant relation with those whom He created—see II Chronicles 18:31 as an example. YHVH is the Ineffable Name or Unutterable Name of the God of Israel and means the Eternal, Immutable One. Because it is composed of the 4 Hebrew letters Yod, Hey, Vav, Hey, it is also referred to as the Tetragrammaton, which simply means “the four letters.” When—in the future to this Chapter of Genesis 4—on that Mountain, Moses asks with Whom he is speaking, Father simply answered Moses “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh” rendered “I Am That I Am” in our Bibles, and is He Who WAS, and IS, and IS TO COME. YHVH is indicated in the KJV 1611 Version, the Authorized Version, and also throughout my Study by small capital letters, “LORD.”
Now, let’s look at this word “man” as Eve used in this verse. In the Strong’s Concordance, it is Hebrew word number: H376, - אישׁ, - 'îysh, pronounced - eesh, and means: Contracted for H582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation.): - also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, [foot-, husband-] man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man [-kind], + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso (-ever), worthy. Compare H802.. So, this “man — יiysh” is different from the “man — Aw-dawm”—Hebrew word number: H120—as previously used in Genesis 1:26-28 in Father’s word. It is also different as; it does NOT have the “article” before it, in other words, it is NOT “The man Adam — eth ha adam” from Genesis 2:7, either.
Now, let’s look at the word\name Cain. In the Strong’s Concordance, it is Hebrew word number: H7014, - קין, - qayin, pronounced - kahי-yin, and means: The same as H7013 (with a play upon the affinity to H7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe: - Cain, Kenite (-s)., and when we follow this out to H7017, we find: 7017, - קיני or קיני, - qêynîy or qîynîy, pronounced - kay-neeי or kee-neeי, and means: Patronymic from H7014, a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin: - Kenite., in other words, the offspring of Cain.
So, bringing in from Genesis 3 that satan first had sexual relations with Eve, and Father — God, knowing this, He then commanded Adam to also lie with his wife—Eve—in order to bring forth a child from Adam. This HAS TO BE in order for Father to come in the flesh. What happens? The “first child — Cain, satan’s son” is born. And then what happens?
Genesis 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. —> Many things to look at in this verse.
(1) Let’s go back to what “Adam’s” purpose was in the Garden of Eden — “To till the ground.” We see now then, that Cain — the first child—satan’s child—is doing the tilling of the ground. What was the True Purpose of tilling the Ground? It is important to understand what this phrase “to till the ground” means as; it means to “to prepare the soil to receive ‘Good Seed’ ” both Spiritually and Physically (human body seed). We can find both of these laid out in a Parable by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 13. I have this in a Study on my Website and you can read it here: Matthew 13. It is a very in-depth study, BUT, Necessary to understanding Father’s Word, and remember, it is Jesus Christ doing the teaching, not a man. So, the purpose of “tilling the ground” was to A. Sow good seed — H2233, - זרע, - zera‛, pronounced - zehי-rah, and means: From H2232; seed, figuratively fruit, plant, sowing time, posterity: - X carnally, child, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time., in other words: — to prepare the soil (both the earth and, man’s minds) for the True Word of God; and B. to sow seed G4690, - σπέρμα, - sperma, pronounced - sper’-mah, and means: From G4687, something sown, that is, seed (including the male “sperm”); by implication offspring; specifically a remnant (figuratively as if kept over for planting): - issue, seed., in other words, to bring forth Father’s Children — Sower of the Good Seed;
(2) Abel — the second child of Eve, ended up being subverted to a keeper of sheep, and Sadly, NOT a tiller of the soil—again, this was satan’s plan—to take over the spiritual soil through his offspring, and we can see by reading I Chronicles 2:55 that, it did in fact take place.
(3) Now, let’s look at the word “again” in this verse. In the Strong’s Concordance, it is Hebrew word number: H3254, - יסף, - yâsaph, pronounced - yaw-safי, and means: A primitive root; to add or augment (often adverbially to continue to do a thing): - add, X again, X any more, X cease, X come more, + conceive again, continue, exceed, X further, X gather together, get more, give moreover, X henceforth, increase (more and more), join, X longer (bring, do, make, much, put), X (the, much, yet) more (and more), proceed (further), prolong, put, be [strong-] er, X yet, yield.. Eve continued in birth, and what happens when a woman continues in birth? She bares — multiple children, in this case: TWINS.
Cain and Abel are Fraternal Twins—medical defination From: reference.com/science/non-identical-twins-made - How are non-identical twins made? Answer: Nonidentical twins only form when two eggs release during the same ovulation. In some cases, the eggs release simultaneously. In others, the ovaries initially release one egg. After fertilization that egg begins moving to the uterus to attach. The ovaries then release a second egg, fertilized by a later act of sexual intercourse. This leads to the potential of a woman giving birth to nonidentical twins with two separate fathers. In this case, the genetic identity of the twins is the same as a half-sibling born from separate pregnancies.—not Identical Twins — they are born of two different fathers, — two different bags of water. Remember from the last study Genesis 3:7 — I pointed out that Jesus in John 8:44 identified the chief priest, the elders, the pharisees, the sadducees, and the scribes as being of their father satan? Let’s re-read it: John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. [8:45] And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. —> Are you going to believe Jesus, or the kenite’s traditions that they passed onto man in order to stay hidden? Pay particular attention to the “lower Case” “f” in John 8:44 for; it delineates and denotes the “TWO fathers” which can also be read about in Malachi 4: Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: [4:6] And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” —> Father was telling Malachi to tell us that He would again send us Elijah to prophesy to us about the coming of Jesus.
Genesis 4:3 And in the process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. —> What should we give to our Creator, Elohim, the genus God—Creator of All Things? We are to give to Him the best of what He has Blessed us with! Does this verse say that that is what Cain offered to Father? No!
Cain gave to Father what he wanted to give to Father, what he thought was “good enough.” He didn’t seek Father and ask, because he didn’t care what Father ELOHIM thought.
Now, let’s get down to the brass tacks concerning what truly happened here. Remember, Cain is satan’s son through his seduction of Eve. Cain is old enough to bring offerings to Father, this means that Cain is also old enough that, satan has been visiting with his son Cain for years, and feeding him information concerning his plan to overthrow Father, in his desire to be god. Therefore, Cain, knowing who is true father is, decided Father—ELOHIM — Creator of ALL THINGS—didn’t deserve his best offerings.
Genesis 4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Able and to his offering: —>
Here is another “colon” ending this verse — again meaning, it continues into the next verse.
Cain and Abel are offering their First Offerings at the same time — supporting verse v4:2 above; that, they are Twins.
Abel brings of the best that he has to offer to Father — the firstlings of his flock — sheep — lambs! Who is The Lamb of God? Jesus Christ — The Only Begotten Son of God IS.
But, what did Cain bring to Father? Not his firstlings, meaning: — Cain kept to himself the best that he had. He had No respect to or for Father, but was instead, like his father, selfish.
Genesis 4:5 But unto Cain and his offering He had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. —> Cain’s countenance should NOT have fallen as; it was his own fault that Father had not respect unto him and his offering. Had he did like his half-brother Abel and brought his best, then Father would have had respect unto him and his offering.
Understand this brethren, even though Cain was of his father satan; had he had respect for and love for our Father — ELOHIM, then he would no longer be a child of satan — Spiritually speaking, and would now be a child of Father. It is the same with\for his offspring, the kenites, if they stop serving their father and instead serve Father — then, they become a child of Father ELOHIM.
Genesis 4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, “Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? —> First off, where did Cain get all of this hostility and hatred from? Remember what Father had told satan in Genesis 3:15? i.e., Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed; It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.” —> And why this anger and hostility directed at Father? Because, the controversy IS Between satan and Father — between the two fathers.
Father asks Cain straight up — why are you mad at me, you are the one who didn’t offer to me the best that you have.
Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” —> This is how it is with our Loving, Wonderful Father. If you try do your best to love and please Him, offering your best to Him — you’ll do well, and you and your offerings will be accepted by Him. However, if you don’t offer up your best to Him and Love and respect Him — anything that is not your best is then sinful, and will NOT be accepted.
Sadly, so many Churchs teach, and so many of His children think and believe that; His love for us is “unconditional.” This just isn't true. Yes, we are all His children — His creation, and He does love us, however, there ARE conditions that must be met, it is not unconditional. Let’s take Esau for an example. Let’s turn to Malachi 1 and read what He says: Malachi 1:2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, [1:3] And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. —> Why did\does Father hate Esau? Because, Esau despised his heritage and birthright. Esau was the firstborn and as such, he was entitled to the “first fruits” blessings. But, what did Esau do with these First Fruit Blessings? He sold them to his brother, Jacob, for a bowl of red pottage. But, in reality, this hatred from our Father toward Esau goes deeper than that, and also goes back further than this Age, it goes back to the First Earth Age, where Esau stopped worshiping Father and instead followed after and worshipped satan as part of that one third from Revelation 12:4.
Look also at how many times Father puts that conditional “IF” behind all the promises in His Word, and also the “cursings,” for NOT loving Him, following His commandments and\or directions.
This verse also tells us something else that is important. No matter your lineage and or genealogy, even if you are of the offspring of satan, IF you Love Father and Offer your best to Him, He’ll love you — and you’ll do well. Yes, even satan’s offspring can have Salvation!
Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Able his brother: and it came to pass, that when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. —> Here is the first murder in Father’s Word. However, it isn’t labeled as such, YET. Why? Because Laws have not yet been given by Father—except for the law of not touching the tree of knowledge of good and evil—and without a law, there can be no law broken.
But, here is Cain slaying his brother Abel; and for what reason? What was it that Abel had done to be slain by his brother? He — Abel, only did what was good and right in the eyes of Father — he offered the best of what he had been Blessed with by Father, where Cain had not.
Abel was also of the True Adamic Seedline through which Father would come in the flesh—both his parents — Adam and Eve were obviously Adamic—whereas, Cain was not. Cain’s only Adamic line was through his mother — Eve. Cain I’m sure, was talked with by his father — satan and told of the things that were not to have been told of and by him. I’m sure satan told Cain of Father going to come in the flesh through Adam and then Abel’s seedline, and therefore, Cain tried to do his father’s work and slew Abel.
Genesis 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, “Where is thy brother?” And he said, “I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?” —> The very first words spoken by Cain in Father’s word are a lie: — “I know not.” Cain knew exactly where his brother Abel was because, he had killed him. So, just like his father satan, Cain immediately starts lying in order to cover up his evil works.
Now, let’s compare this with, and see what the Apostle John said in I John 3: I John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. —> See, when we read Father’s Word and hear what HE has to say, we then Truly get to hear the Truth in His Word.
Genesis 4:10 And He said, “What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto Me from the ground. —> Father created all things, He talks with His creation and His creation talks with Him; and here in this verse, even though it states that Abel’s blood cries out from the ground, we know from Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 that as soon as we die, our spirit returns to Father from which it came.
Now, let’s compare this with Jesus addressing the “priesthood” in Matthew 23: Matthew 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, —> Jesus is telling the religious leaders of His time just who they are and from whom they came from. [23:30] And say, ‘If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ —> He is telling them that, THEY SAY, “oh no, not us, we would never do anything like killing Father’s prophets.” [23:31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. —>
Speak and say what you will, however, your own actions convict you, and show that you are the children of those who killed Father’s prophets. [23:32] Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. [32:33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? —>
Here He lays it right out. Let’s look at this “YE SERPENTS.” Jesus wouldn’t call somebody a name just for the fun of it. “Ye generation,” this word “generation” in the Strong’s Concordance, is Greek word number: G1081, - γέννημα, - gennēma, pronounced - ghen’-nay-mah, and means: From G1080; offspring; by analogy produce (literally or figuratively): - fruit, generation.. While His use of the phrase “of vipers,” again He is identifying them, and He is NOT just calling them names. [23:34] Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: —>
Jesus is telling them that (1) They will scourge and then crucify Him; (2) they will do the same to some of His disciples; and (3) that in the final end time generation, they will also do the same to those whom Father has chosen to make that stand in their synagogues as can be read in Matthew 10:17-20, Mark 13:9-11, and Luke 12:10-12. [23:35] That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. —> Abel’s slaying we are reading about right now, here in Genesis 4, while Zechariah’s slaying we are reading about right here in Matthew 23. [23:36] Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. —> Jesus is telling them that unless they change their ways, repent and ask for forgiveness, and begin to love Father — YHVH, all the cursings will come upon them, and they will follow their father into the Lake of Fire.
Genesis 4:11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; —> Father has just told Cain that he is cursed, and that His—Father’s—creation — Earth, will no longer produce good offerings for Cain and his descendents. We can read about this by John, in the New Testament in his Epistles, so let’s go back to I John 3: I John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. —> Whoever does righteously, in Father’s eyes, they are righteous and good. How do we do right? First and foremost, by NOT allowing MAN to deceive us concerning Father’s Word. [3:8] He that committeth sin is of the devil: for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. —> He that committeth sin...=What are the wages of sin? Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. —> And WHO is death? Satan is! And WHY did Father become flesh? We find our answer to both of these two questions in Hebrews 2: Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; —>
Father became flesh as His only begotten Son Jesus Christ so that He could destroy satan. [3:9] Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. —> Don’t misunderstand this verse for we all do sin, ONLY ONE DID NOT — Jesus Christ. However, we the children of Father YHVH, know that we are sinners, and therefore, we repent, and when we repent, those sins are forgiven and remembered by Father NO MORE. Yes, we will remember them in order to try and prevent us from committing them again, but once they are forgiven — they’re gone. One who is of Father, and grounded in His Word, knows that Father has warned us that satan as the pretend-to-be-jesus — antichrist, is coming first, and only Father’s Elect are qualified to commit the sin with the clear knowledge that they can be judged on their actions. Others simply don’t know, and they will have a vail of slumber over them by Father in order to protect them. Father will intercede in the lives of His Elect to cause His Word to come to pass. This is not speaking of the many that have free will, but those who are of the Election, spoken of in Romans 8, and Ephesians 1:4-7. [3:10] In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. —> Did you hear what John just said in this verse? — That both Father and satan have children on earth, and that they are manifest, or bring to light the purpose of each. Father’s children study His Word — and know what Father’s Plan is, and therefore they try and live righteously as instructed in and by His Word. The children of satan, the devil, known as the kenites are on earth to fulfill the negative part of Father’s plan. [3:11] For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. —> From the beginning of this “age,” this is what Father wanted — us to love Him and His creation — our brothers and in the flesh — sisters also. [3:12] Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. —> Again, John emphasizes the fact that Cain is of satan — his son. He and his offspring are on earth to fulfill that negative part of Father’s plan which is all a test to see who has read Father’s Word and who has NOT. [3:13] Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. —>
One of the biggest compliments I have received since coming into the Truth of Father’s Word was by a co-worker who said “you need to get a life.” He said this because I told him I have given up sports, going to the movies and any such other thing where I could give my money to those who would support “the ways of this world.’ We see on a daily basis, the “world” hating Christ and Christians and it too is all part of Father’s Plan.
These children of satan, they are people who, if they don’t change their ways, Father YHVH does not intend to offer His salvation to in this earth age; however, if they do hear, repent and confess — Father will save them. Though this sounds like a contradiction; it is not. In the churches today, the kenites have so distorted Father’s Word with their fairy tales, false teachings, false doctrines and traditions, that Father’s People don’t even know they have to be on guard against these kenites. Confusion in the church is at an all time high as most of the church leaders now, even believe that Father respects and allows Sodomites in His house of worship. Today, good has become bad, and they have turned Father’s hatred into love. The world is being turned up side down.
This reign of Godless deception is everywhere, and sadly, most Christians are just too blind to see what is right before them. We must understand that it is Father utilizing satan and his children in this final generation to spread deception, thereby blinding all but the His Elect.
Through deception, the “House of Judah” has received the blame for murdering Jesus Christ, however the murderers of our Lord were these same offspring of Cain — the Kenites who took over the Scribe’s duties.
They gained control of the entire priesthood while our forefathers were in captivity to the Babylonians, of course, they were well embedded prior to that time. When Ezra was leading his group back to Jerusalem, he found out rather quickly and surprisingly that his fellow priests really didn’t desire to leave Babylon as he records in >Ezra 2:43-65; 8:15 and Nehemiah records in Nehemiah 7:46-65. In Babylon these “nethinims — those given to service — captives of the Israelite — kenites” infiltrated our forefathers and bound them in usury, and religious bonds. These nethinims are the descendents of the Gibeonites, and they go by many names such as: Hivites, Perizzites, Rechabites and so on, however, they are all pretty much descended from the same man: Canaan. Some are also from satan and Ev e’s son Cain, it is this group who are known as the kenites, and they too mixed in with our forefathers. During the time our Father walked His Earth in the flesh as His only begotten Son Jesus CHrist, both these groups are the ones who were living among our forefathers in Judea and were also called “Jews” because of where they were living NOT because of WHOM THEY WERE It is these same people Jesus told John to beware of in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9 which I’ll bring out a little later in this Study.
The term “Jew” is a reference to the people who lived in the land of the small nation of Judah which was comprised of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with the majority of the tribe of Levi, a host of the nethinims of the kenite race, and those who had been installed in the land when the Babylonians had taken the House of Judah into captivity.
This is why it is important for us to understand what went on between satan and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It is the members to that race of kenites, or Gibeonites that has, and is today, binding God's people into bondage. They are the ones that Jeremiah calls the "evil figs," in Jeremiah 24:1-12, where he prophesied that both the good and evil figs would return to Jerusalem in the last days. These figs are all the Jews (both good - House of Judah and evil - kenites) which are separated into two baskets. One basket contains the true "House of Judah" while the other basket of evil figs are those the Bible calls "kenites" or "nethinims."
The entire plan of God centers on what happened in the Garden of Eden, which brought sin into the world. And that sin will always be with us, along with that satanic, luciferian blood line. They will be with us until this world age is over and satan is taken away for good. Why? Because enmity was put between the seed of Eve - Christ and the seed of the serpent - the kenites through their father Cain.
Genesis 4:12 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. -> Father places two curses upon Cain here in this verse: (1) His creation - the Earth will no longer produce for Cain and his offspring. If they are to make money off of Father's produce, it is in the "sale" thereof not by their growing of such; and (2) Cain and his offspring will never own land, they will always be wanderers. We can read of this also in Jeremiah 35, where during Jeremiah's day they were still doing as Father and Cain commanded: Jeremiah 35:1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, -> This is Our Jeremiah the prophet of God; we'll see a different Jeremiah in a little bit so stay focused and on guard. [35:2] Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink. -> First off, who are the Rechabites; it's important, do you know? Likewise also it is important to know WHY Father wants Jeremiah and us to know all this information. Let's turn to I Chronicles 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and the Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab. -> These are some of the peoples Father wanted the Israelites to utterly destroy upon entering into Canaan, the Promised Land. They were part of the nethinims that the Levites brought in to do their chores. They were the offspring of Cain. Does that matter? What do you think Father is trying to show you here?!!! It definitely does matter. Why you say? listen to what He has to say. [35:3] Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites; -> This Jeremiah is NOT our Jeremiah, this ones father's name is "Habazaniah." Our Jeremiah's father's name is Hilkiah, which we can find in Chapter 1, verse 1. If we don't pay attention, things can get confused pretty quickly, they named their children in like names for that very reason. Go back to Genesis and see how the names of Cain's offspring closely matched those of Seth's, and it wasn't because of "just wanting to sound similar," it was to keep us confused. But, listen to Father - [35:4] And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door. -> Our Jeremiah brought these kenites into the deepest chambers of Father's house. [35:5] And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, "drink ye wine." -> After bringing them into the deepest chambers, Jeremiah the prophet had pots of wine and cups brought in so they could partake, let's see if they do. But before we do, do you think it matters? Remember, we are the branches of the Vine, which is to say - Christ, His blood (wine during communion) gives us our life. [35:6] But they said, "We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us saying, 'Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever: -> Their father, and I know it says "Jonadab" but think deep on this, their father (small "f") said "drink no wine forever," in other words, never let wine pass your lips, don't ever partake of Christ's Life-giving Blood! Remember also, this is Our Father showing this to us for this very reason. [35:7] Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers. -> Is the picture starting to come into focus yet? Remember what Father told Cain when He drove him out of the Garden of Eden?! Genesis 4:12 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. -> So we can see to the time of Jeremiah they still don't\couldn't sow seed because the earth won't yield her strength; or build houses, so that they can live hidden among people. To this day they still live as such, most in Jerusalem today are such; "non-Israelites (but claiming to be of Judah)" and the world doesn't even know it. Cain and his offspring, these kenites, are not part of Adam's genealogy in Genesis 5, and that is because Cain, though born of Eve, was NOT of Adam. He was the "fruit of the labor" of the sexual union between satan (tree of knowledge of good and evil) in his role of deceiver (serpent) and Eve in the Garden. But our Father, God, has a plan for these kenites and this is why He is allowing all this. Remember the "test on Father's Word" I said was coming and that sadly most will fail? How many people know and understand this, yet here is Father showing us all this. But if you don't read chapter-by-chapter you'll never understand it. This is also part of the "Key of David" from Revelation 3:6-10 and 2:7-11 and why that is so very important. Let's go there for a second: Revelation 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. [3:7] And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; [3:8] I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My name. [3:9] Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee [3:10] Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth [3:11] Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [3:12] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name. -> Then in Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. [2:8] And unto the angel of the church of Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; [2:9] I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan. [2:10] Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you in prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. [2:11] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. -> What did Philadelphia and Smyrna know? Those that "claim to be Jews and are not," - in other words, those that claim to be Adam's offspring but in reality are satan's offspring; through Cain. Let's keep reading to see what else Father says about these kenites here. [35:8] Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine in all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; -> Our Father knew that wine in Jeremiah's future would come to symbolize the Blood of Christ, as did satan, and his offspring Rechab told his offspring, to tell theirs to not drink it as a statute forever, as he wanted them to have nothing to do with salvation or the partaking of Christ's blood during communion. Are you a Christian and still refusing to partake of wine during communion? [35:9] Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed: [35:10] But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us. -> Yes they have been very obedient to their father haven't they?! WATCH! Jeremiah 35:11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, "Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem. -> They dwell where?! Remember "those that say they are Jews but do lie and are of the synagogue of satan?" Again this is our Father showing us this so we may learn.
Genesis 4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear." -> Perhaps he should have thought about that before he conspired within his heart and committed that pre-meditated, criminal homicide.
Genesis 4:14 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 everyone that findeth me shall slay me. -> Cain had not yet ever been out of the Garden of Eden, and yet he knew there were other peoples, other races created prior to his mother Eve and her husband - Adam being created, and that these peoples lived outside the Garden of Eden, and here he is stating it as fact.
Genesis 4:15 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. -> See how it all makes sense when we actually read His Word. Father didn't ask Cain what he meant by his statement "whosoever findeth me shall slay me." Father knew there were other created races and peoples outside the Garden. So what did He do? He set a "mark" upon Cain. In the Hebrew, in the Strong's Concordance, the word "mark" is Hebrew word number H226 - 'ôth, pronounced - oth and means: Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: - mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.. Do you realize that there are two different marks that Father puts upon His children? One is a "mark" as He put upon Cain and will also be the same as used in the Book of Revelation, and the other is a "seal" that He will place in the minds of some. One - "the mark" - can be found in verses Revelation 13:16-17; 14:9-11; 15:2; 16:2; 19:20 and 20:4; and the other - "the seal" - can be found in Revelation 6:3, 5, 7, 9 and 12; 7:2; 8:1; 9:4; 10:4; 20:3 and 22:10.
The "mark" as used in Revelation in the Greek in the Strong's Concordance is Greek word G5480 - charagma, pronounced - khar'-ag-mah and means: From the same as G5482; a scratch or etching, that is, stamp (as a badge of servitude), or sculptured figure (statue): - graven, mark.. The "mark" is used in conjunction with satan, and it is a negative and something we don't want to take.
So now that we know what the "mark" is, let's see what taking it truly means. To "receive the mark in your forehead" means that you have been deceived in this Spiritual War and are on the wrong side and don't know Father's Word.
"Receiving it in your hand" means that you are doing satan's work. How do you do his work? Most people will do this accidentally by turning one of their loved ones over to him believing that they are doing the right thing. In other words, when satan arrives and one of God's Elect are doing what they are to do, there will be one of their loved ones who believe that satan is christ and their loved one is falsely prophesying against "christ", so they will turn that loved one over to satan. Then there are those who willingly go along with his system and willingly do his works.
The word "seal" as used in Revelation in the Greek, in the Strong's Concordance is Greek word number G4973 - sphragis, pronounced - sfrag-ece' and means: Probably strengthened from G5420; a signet (as fencing in or protecting from misappropriation); by implication the stamp impressed (as a mark of privacy, or genuineness), literally or figuratively: - seal.. The "seal" is used in conjunction with Father and is what we want within our minds. If we have Father's Seal within our minds, it means we have studied Father's Word enough to know what His plan is, who comes first (satan) and not Christ, and are NOT and WILL NOT BE deceived in this Spiritual War.
Genesis 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. -> Most churches' teach that still at this point in Father's Word, there are only Adam, Eve and Cain, but yet, when Cain is kicked out of The Garden, he goes to a land that is already named - Nod. As we'll see, this is also where he finds and takes his wife from. If there are only Adam, Eve and Cain - just where DOES Cain's Wife come from? For our answer to this, we have to go back to Genesis 1:26-28, the "sixth day creation."
Genesis 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. -> At this point in Father's Word, it is time to start paying attention to something very important - names. Why is this important? Because Cain, and then his offspring, purposely name their offspring with like names after the "TRUE" Seedline, in order to confuse the readers of Father's Word. It is to throw us off as to who is who. The names "SOUND" the same BUT are SPELLED differently.
Here in this verse, Cain's son is named Enoch, and we'll fine when we get to Adam's Genealogy, in Genesis 5, that his great, great, great, great grandson, Lamech, also had a son named Enoch. We'll also notice that there are a lot of Cain's offspring whose names end with the letters "el." There is only One Named "El" and that is our Father, so we again see satan trying to confuse us by having Cain's offspring name their offspring with an ending sounding "like God's name." Oh so religious.
Here with this verse, we are about to begin Cain's genealogy\lineage and will continue until verse 24. You'll notice that Adam is nowhere listed as being Cain's Father, in Fact when we come to Genesis 5, the next chapter, and Adam's genealogy\lineage, you won't find Cain listed there either.
Genesis 4:18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. -> Let's look at each of these names in this verse and we'll see a pattern forming: Enoch - teaching or initiation; Irad - fugitive; Mehujael - smitten of God; Methusael - man who (is) of God - when we break the second form of the word (God) back to the "prime" we find that that means of "any" deity - which then tells us that this name "is of god (lower case "g"); Lamech - powerful, - satan and his offspring "think" they are powerful.
Genesis 4:19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. -> Here in this verse we fine the first polygamist - Lamech. And he being of the offspring of satan, then tells us where polygamy comes from - satan.
Genesis 4:20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such that dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. -> Jabal dwelt in tents because he, like his fathers before him, is a roamer, or vagabond and doesn't own any land.
It was Abel that was the first in the Adamic seedline that was a cattle rancher, and here we again see satan's offspring trying to confuse us.
Since Jabal doesn't have land, he therefore is NOT a rancher, but instead, roams with his cattle.
Genesis 4:21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. -> Jubal, an offspring of satan, was the first musician and even to this day we find the music world full of more of the same - the offspring of satan. Pay attention to the majority of the people and of their lyrics and it isn't hard to see and hear.
Genesis 4:22And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah. -> In the Hebrew, Tubal-cain means "flowing from Cain."
Genesis 4:23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, harken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. -> Notice Lamech is now trying to change what Father was trying to instill in man; in Genesis 3:17 Father told Adam that since he, Adam, harkened unto his wife - Eve's, voice, He, Father was placing a curse upon him and the ground and he, Adam would now have to toil and labor to make the ground produce for him. But here, Lamech is commanding his wives to "harken to my voice and my speech."
Genesis 4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. -> We see satan's pride already starting to take hold of his offspring. First he commands his wives to hear and harken to him and now we see "I shall be avenged."
In the phrase from the previous verse "I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt" - "I have" is a continuous present, so the phrase may then be rendered as this - "I can kill a man for wounding me, and a young man for hurting me."
We also see that satan's offspring have murder in their hearts. That murderous trait continued unto Christ - whom they nailed to the cross, and it continues to this day.
This was, as far as this chapter is concerned, the end of Cain's genealogy.
Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. -> Seth in the Hebrew means - appointed or substituted, and he was substituted for his murdered brother Abel.
Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: Then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. -> Enos in the Hebrew is spelled "Enosh" and means - "incurable," "frail" or "mortal" man.
In the phrase "then began men to call upon the name of the LORD" we know that this does NOT mean that men now began to worship God because in verses 3 and 4 above, Cain brought his offering and Abel worshipped by bringing his First Fruit offerings to God; so that means that this phrase in this verse means something else. What does it mean? It means possibly several things: (1) Either man began to call "other gods" by the name of YHVH - "While ELOHIM is God as the Creator of ALL things, YHVH is the same God in covenant relation to those whom He has created. YHVH means: The Self Existent or Eternal, The Immutable One, He Who WAS, and IS, and IS TO COME. The Divine definition is given in Genesis 21:33 "...The Everlasting God.".
Or (2) man started to "profanely call upon the name of the LORD" which is how it is worded in the Massorah. Either way, they stopped properly worshipping Father - ELOHIM - our CREATOR.
Enos, even though he is the son of Seth, he is included here in this Chapter, because he went in "the way of Cain." What began here was the profanity of the "Name of YHVH". Their idols - the sun and the stars - God's creation, were now being worshipped, and what ever else they bowed to, became their god that they called "YHVH". The name "YHVH" became a generic form for whatever you want to worship, and not the "one true God - ELOAH, the one and ONLY true Living God, The Creator of all things in Heaven and on earth who is to be Worshipped".
The ancient Jewish Prophets and writers supplied the description of the form "their gods." The "Targum of Onkel" explains it: "Then in his days the sons of men desisted from praying in the name of the Lord."
In "The Commentary on the Mishna", a part of the Talmud, A.D. 1168; in the treatise on idolatry, gives the most probable account of the origin of idolatry in the days of Enos. "The name 'Enos' reflects his sickened condition in mind as in his spiritual condition."
Though "Enos" brought on idolatry in his ways, he still was not a murderer, or follow the heathen customs of Cain, of building cities, and so on.
