Continuing directly from the second part, 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 wasn’t an animal that made it unacceptable or was there something else, and was Cain’s unsatisfying offering a symbol of a deeper malaise within Cain, because we must not forget who his physical father was?
Well, we also know that there was an argument between the two half siblings, but what was the argument about?
Gen 4: 8 (KJV) And Cain spoke with Abel his brother; and it came to pass that when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
The word ‘spoken’ here is a nonsensical understatement of the KJV by the translators – disguising at its best and not kidding. Cain and Abel were arguing fiercely, but about what? Well, we have a good idea, because it was the object of sacrifices or religious observances, that is, those that were acceptable to the Lord and those that were not. So what was unacceptable about Cain’s offer? It simply contained no blood, and it was one made partially with his hands. He had to plant the crops he offered, unlike Abel’s, which were made entirely without his hands and by God. Yashua Anointed is the Stone or Rock (note, all Roman Catholics) carved without hands. Cain’s offering was a tarnished offering, an insulting offering, and Abel’s was spotless and perfect, a lamb of the firstfruits of his flock, a type of the Passover Lamb with its shed blood that soaked the earth.
There was also something more to this rebellion of Cain, because it was not only spiritual. The spiritual dimension of all this was only half, because keep in mind that the rebellious physical descendants of Cain are still with us today, as is their name. But how can a spirit, six thousand years old, influence us today, I hear you say? Again, simply because it was the spirit of the Devil alive in Cain and a spirit would be carried through the Flood through Ham and his sinful antics.
At this time, a descendant of Cain recently ran for the Republican Party in the US elections: Senator McCain. Mac means ‘son of’ so there we have him, a son of Cain, hoping to be named president of the US Then we have Dick Cheney. If we harden the ‘ch’ as in the Chaldean / Hebrew language, what we actually have is Dick Cainey. Another descendant of Cain as vice president of the United States; How does that make you feel friends? Dan Quayle is also another Cainite name. They seem to like power, these descendants of Cain, don’t they?
Having rambled, but keeping the previous topic, I will 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 THIS AGE or what the Holy Scriptures call THIS WORLD – the Old New World Order started here with Cain, and there was no way that he would allow his upstart half-brother son of man have some authority over him. Cain, don’t forget, was a demonic hybrid – a being half celestial serpent and half manly man – a ‘human’ being, so he undoubtedly considered himself far superior to his earthly half-brother, fully man. It’s more, ‘hu’ from Hebrew / Gaelic means ‘snake’ so a ‘human’ it’s a ‘snake Man’ and NOT a man. Humanity and humanity are two very different species.
Furthermore, this spirit was the spirit of Satan, imparted to Cain by his father, the Devil. Satan the Devil knew that God’s plan would eventually mean that men would be resurrected to the state of Spirit, a state that would give resurrected spirit men authority over him and his followers in the future. The Holy Scriptures corroborate this when Paul said to the Corinthians:
1 Cor 6: 3 (KJV) Do you not know that we will judge angels? How many more things that belong to this life?
Satan, therefore, was going to do everything in his power to prevent humanity from reaching its ultimate prize: eternal life with authority over the angels, for us as resurrected spirit 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 came the infamous Mark of Cain:
Genesis 4:15 (KJV) And the LORD said to him, Therefore whoever kills Cain will be punished seven times. And the LORD put a mark on Cain, ballast and anyone who found him will kill him.
The question that now needs an answer is WHY ?! Why did the Lord forgive Cain, because without a doubt it was a disappointment, even if only a temporary disappointment? Under the Law (because the Law in Spirit was in effect before Moses) of the Old Covenant, he should have been killed immediately and in the same way that he had killed his brother – eye for an eye, etc. So why did Yashua anoint him to let him escape? For the simple reason that everything is for the Glory of God and His Glory is ultimately being served through His plan for humanity, which Satan was never going to stop, try your best. To understand God’s ways, we must understand this fundamental of fundamentals. All the events in the Old Testament narrative had to happen, to bring us and necessitate the birth of Yashua Anointed in this world and then His sacrifice and His resurrection. This ‘Mark’ that Cain received is the same as the Mark of the Beast in Revelation, and I will deal with this in more detail later.
We must also remember, too, that our ways are not God’s ways; our logic and reasoning are not the logic and reasoning of God. Our ideas of logic and reasoning are based solely on our cocky “we think we know what is best”, vanity and pride, unless of course we are born of God (we are born again) and have a close brotherly relationship with Yashua Anointed , who then teaches. us his ways and his logic.
The ways of Cain are not the ways of Yashua Anointed, because Yashua Anointed is the Way. Cain’s ways involve the philosophy and intellect that man has emulated until his fall. This means that man’s pride and vanity, by relying on his own logic and reasoning, has created nothing but blasphemous error when it comes to biblical and spiritual matters. In turn, this mindset, a mindset of philosophical intellectual reasoning, has separated man from his Creator. A good example of this phenomenon was a Canaanite Jew named Philo who operated in Alexandria in Egypt in the 1st century AD, from which we get the word “philosophy.” He groomed and ‘educated’ the counterfeiters ‘church fathers’, who then infiltrated the first century church to corrupt it and then left to start their religion. This Philo being a Canaanite Jew made him a descendant of Cain.
Going back to the story line, we have God punishing Cain for Abel’s murder, but with a punishment Cain cannot bear. How is a punishment that you cannot bear? He cannot bear it because man’s environment was going to be cursed by God a second time. Man lost the beautiful environment of the Garden of Eden through the sin of Adam and Eve and was on the verge of losing the fertility of the earth as a whole. The Lord was going to curse the earth completely so that it would no longer produce any harvest and all men would know that Cain was the culprit of it and therefore they would seek him out to kill him:
Gen 4:12 (KJV) When you till the land, it will not give you its strength again; Fugitive and vagabond you will be on earth.
There we have it, Cain as a fugitive fleeing from his half-brother humanity for the rest of his days and, furthermore, as a poverty-stricken wanderer. As expected, this was more than he could bear. Then Cain pleads for mercy and the Lord hears him:
Gen 4: 13-15 (KJV) And Cain said to Jehovah: My punishment it is bigger than I can bear. 14 Behold, today you have driven me off the face of the earth; and from your face I will hide; and I’ll be a fugitive and a wanderer on earth; and it will happen, that Anyone who finds me will kill me. 15 And the LORD said to him, Therefore whoever kills Cain shall be punished seven times. And the LORD put a mark on Cain, ballast and anyone who found him will kill him.
Once again, there we have it and with Cain admitting that his face will be hidden from the Lord and that his life is not worth a penny. So the Lord puts a Mark on Cain protecting him from his half brother, ballest humanity that anyone should try 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. How do we know? Easy, they get away with it and never stop. Here in Britain our ex-Prime Minister was nicknamed “Teflon Tony” because nothing seemed to stick to him. Crisis and crimes followed crisis and crimes, including illegal wars and genocide in the Middle East, and it seemed untouchable, which, of course, it was and still is. He and Bush are both highly suspect in many of their affairs and dealings, but has anyone here in the West ever accused them of a single crime? No, by no means, it is not an opportunity. Why? Why, by the mark of Cain. Mr. Blair was also nicknamed B. Liar, which is a play on the name of Belial, one of Satan’s princes, whose sons are more commonly known as “lying scoundrels.” Isn’t that a summary of all politicians? I believe that.
Finally, we have the genealogy of Cain from Enoch:
Gen 4: 18-22 (KJV) And to Enoch Irad was born; and Irad begat Mehujael; Mehujael begot Metusael; and Metusael begot Lamech. 19 And Lamech took for himself two wives: the name of one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20 And Ada gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of the tent dwellers, and of those who have cows. 21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: He was the father of all those who handle the harp and the organ. 22 And Zilla also gave birth to Tubal-Cain, master of all craftsmen of bronze and iron; and to the sister of Tubal-Cain. was Naamah.
Now this Naamah is reputed to have been Noah’s wife, but the Holy Scriptures again turn cold on this subject, because Mrs. Noah is never referred to by name. However, she is mentioned in The Book of Jasher as Noah’s wife. There is also other evidence, too, with the name Cain being mentioned after the Flood through the name of a tribe of people known as the Quenites. In the Hebrew language, his name is derived from Cain. In Hebrew, it is pronounced ‘qey-niy’ gold ‘kay-Born’ and Cain pronounces ‘qayin’ gold ‘kay-yin ‘ so we can see that there is a definite connection.
Then we have the name of Canaan which is pronounced ‘ken-na’an’ gold ‘Ken-ah-an’. So, as we can clearly see, all of these people are related and originate from Cain. This means that Cain’s race did not go extinct with the Flood, it continued, but how? Everything will be revealed in my next article. I will also deal with the issue of giants: the ‘nephalim’, who was living on earth at the time, so stay with him, friends.
