This reminds me of Jesus being the
shepherd of his flocks (Abel), and
Satan as well as Adam being
condemned to dust to dust, crawling
on belly eating dust, toiling the “earth”
for food from the fields (instead of fruit
from trees), and as a result of this birth
of Cain (from Satan???), Cain was
reduced to also toiling the soil.
“Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain
worked the soil.” (NIV)
Sacrificing “fat”, and burning it was an
aroma pleasing to God.
The description of this goes on again
in Exodus, when Moses was instructed
by God on how (and who) shall build
the Tabernacle, and what “sacrifices”
and offerings are to be made there,
and how to go about it.
This could also show the future of
how Jesus (God’s only son) was
“sacrificed” to forgive sin.

(Speaking about that, I believe the
Last Supper was a way for Jesus
(God) saying that sacrificing was done
(animals) in the Tabernacle, and the
Last Supper was Jesus as the
sacrifice, taking the bread and wine as
a metaphor and symbolic way of
reproduction in the mass).
4:3 and 4:4
“In the course of time Cain brought
some of the fruits of the soil as an
offering to the Lord. But Abel brought
fat portions from some of the firstborn
of his flock.”
Leviticus explanation of: (7:1-4) The holy
law of trespass offering: Find an animal;
kill it; sprinkle the blood around; offer God
the fat, rump, kidneys, and caul; burn and
eat it in the holy place, for "it is most holy."
Leviticus (7:23-25) "Ye shall eat no
manner of fat ... for whosoever eateth the
fat of the beast, of which men offer an
offering made by fire unto the LORD ...
shall be cut off from his people."
Leviticus 4:35
They shall remove all the fat, just as the
fat is removed from the lamb of the
fellowship offering, and the priest shall
burn it on the altar on top of the food
offerings presented to the LORD. In this
way the priest will make atonement for
them for the sin they have committed, and
they will be forgiven.
Exodus 13:12
you are to give over to the LORD the first
offspring of every womb. All the firstborn
males of your livestock belong to the
Maybe, if Cain was the offspring of
Satan, God was demonstrating that
evil could not change itself.
  God showed no favoritism toward Abel’s
offering.  He only disfavored Cain’s
offering since it was of lesser quality.  It
was not a reflection of God’s disliking of
Cain. This poses some unanswerable
questions, such as why would Cain murder
his brother instead of working to make
better offerings to God.  The New
Testament mentions Cain and Able in two
accounts.  It says that Abel’s offering was
one of faith (Hebrews 11:4), whereas Cain’
s offering to God was inherently evil (1
John 3:12).  This could be a reference to
Genesis 3:17 when God proclaimed to
Adam, “cursed is the ground for thy sake;
in sorrow shalt though eat of it all the days
of thy life.”  Abel’s offering was one of
life— if his offering was a live animal—
which was the accepted from of offering in
early biblical times.  Cain’s offering, being
that he was an agriculturalist, was one of
probably fruits.  Hence, Cain’s offering
came from the cursed ground, while Abel’s
offering was of life itself. http:
    Abel also brought of the firstborn of his
flock and of their fat: This shows Abel’s
offering was extra special. The fat of the
animal was prized as its luxury, and was to
be given to God when the animal was
sacrificed (Leviticus 3:16-17; 7:23-25).
The burning of fat in sacrifice before God
is called a sweet aroma to the LORD
(Leviticus 17:6).

i. The offering of Cain was no doubt more
aesthetically pleasing; Abel’s would have
been a bloody mess. But God was more
concerned with faith in the heart than with
artistic beauty.

ii. Here, it was one lamb for a man. Later,
at the Passover, it will be one lamb for a
family. Then, at the Day of Atonement, it
was one lamb for the nation. Finally, with
Jesus, there was one Lamb who took away
the sin of the whole world (John 1:29).
    God continued to talk to them and
provided for them after their sin. He made
clothes of animal skin, probably from lamb
skins, to cover their nakedness and
replace the fig-leaf loin cloths they had
made. This required an animal sacrifice to
cover their sin, which prefigured the Lamb
of God's (Christ's) sacrifice for the sins of
the world several thousand years later.
This illustrated the biblical principle of
substitutionary atonement, or covering, by
the shedding of blood as a condition of
forgiveness for the sinner.
Adam and Eve must have taught their
children about the importance of offering
sacrifices to God, because we find Cain
and Abel giving offerings to God in
Genesis chapter 4 — long after Adam and
Eve's sin.http://www.creationtips.
In Leviticus, there are steps given from
God regarding burnt offerings, Priest
collects the blood and sprinkles it
against the altar. While the animal is
being killed by slitting its throat, a
priest holds a basin to collect the
blood, then sprinkles it against the
altar to make atonement.
I think God was somewhat setting up
steps on sacrifices (certainly not
human), and was pointing out to Cain
that human sacrifices were considered
God was not only saying to Cain, but
to the whole human race that he see’s
and hear’s ALL.
“The Lord said, ‘What have you done?
Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out
to me from the ground…’ “ (NIV)
"For the life of a creature is in the blood,
and I have given it to you to make
atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is
the blood that makes atonement for one's
life." (Leviticus 17:11)
God has placed a curse on Cain, in
essence he is denying him death—
dust to dust—calling him UNhuman,
and not a man made from the
ground/dust (as Adam was), therefore
he would not return to dust.
“…Now you are under a curse and
driven from the ground which opened
up to receive your brother’s blood
from your hand…”(NIV)
God does not specifically say, “Now I curse
you.”  He says, “Now you are cursed.”  
This has been interpreted to say that Cain’
s aggression was his curse, with the
outcome being Abel’s death.  Cain had the
opportunity to overcome his curse, and he
may have, considering that he had a family
and settled down.  Because of his
continuous anger, the curse of aggression
was said to have been handed down to his
Lamech— the bible’s first
who killed an anonymous
person.  This is evident in people today
who are seen to pass their attitudes on to
their children.  Troublesome children are
often seen to get their attitudes and
problems from their parents, and this may
have been the case for Cain and his
immediate descendants. http:
We go back to: 3:14
“…you will crawl on your belly and you
will eat dust all the days of your life…”
I think, in other words, in God’s curse
he is telling Cain that he won’t return
to dust when he dies but that his crops
will not grow and be “just” dust, and
that he can eat dust for the rest of his
life, and that he will amount to nothing
but being just a restless wanderer on
the earth.
“When you work the ground, it will no
longer yield its crops for you. You will
be a restless wanderer on the earth.”
Just off the top of my head, this
reminds me about the “mark of Satan”
“…The Lord put a mark on Cain so
that no one who found him would kill
The Hebrew word for mark
('Oth, אות) could mean a sign, omen,
or remembrance. The mark of
Cain is God's promise to Cain for divine
protection from premature death with the
stated purpose to prevent anyone from
killing him. It is not known what the mark is,
but it is assumed that the mark is visible.
Some have speculated that the mark is a
Hebrew letter placed on either the face or
the arm. The Septuagint translates the
mark as a "sign".
Thus, it is speculated
that the mark served as a sign to
others to not commit the same
In this chapter of Genesis, it tells
of Adam’s descendants. Cain is
NOT mentioned (so did Eve get
pregnant by Satan’s seed as I said
Why does everyone so quick to say
that Cain was the son of Adam and
Eve? The bible does say that he was
the son of Eve but in the fifth chapter
of Genesis, it outlines the descendants
of Adam, and Cain is not mentioned. In
no where in the bible does it
say that Cain is the son of Adam.
If, as the Judeo-Christian churches teach,
Adam was the first human being of any
sort, then no one was left alive at this
stage except Adam and Eve (who were not
going to kill Cain) and Cain himself. Yet,
he *expected to be killed in the immediate
future when he ran into someone.” This is
simply another instance of the Bible's
recognition, in several places, of the
existence of pre Adamic races.
Now I can get even more confused as
Eve was said to be made from Adam’s
rib; therefore, that would technically
make Eve a descendent of Adam and
all descendents of Eve descendents of
Adam as well.
  Adam and Eve had many unaccounted
children, the population between the time
of Eve’s first child and the time that Cain
found a wife would have been at least 200
years, in which case Cain (the firstborn)
would have had a several women (sisters)
to chose to wed. http://truth4believers.

Cain and Abel

Gen 4:1-2
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the
LORD. 2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
"And Adam knew Eve, his wife," hello, excuse me, Adam did what? Adam had already 'known' his wife in The Garden, so
how is it that after expulsion from The Garden he is only now 'knowing' his wife as if for the first time? And what has
happened to the two seeds if Adam is the father of both Cain and Abel?
Notice, it doesn't say "And Adam knew Eve
his wife again".
Then it says she conceived and bare Cain and not only that but she says she has: "Gotten a man from the Lord". We then
have Eve conceiving and baring Abel, but with Adam having only known her once, so what's going on here!!?? We need
to understand that Eve fell pregnant due to sinful, evil, promiscuous and lascivious sexual acts and then declares
she has
been blessed with a man from the Lord. How does that work then, does the Lord bless sin?
We only have to
recall what happened to King David's child through his illicit sexual shenanigans with Bathsheba to know that The Lord
does not bless the fruits of the womb of Biblical characters when they misbehave. You can read the story in 2 Samuel 12
and in particular verse 15.
Make no mistake Eve's evil union with the Devil would, and could, only bring trouble, not only to her, but to Adam, and for
all mankind in the future as well, culminating in the flood and the sinful post flood world, too i.e. our world today. If we know
the story, we will also know that the fruits of this event would be graphically displayed in the way in which Cain turns out i.e.
what kind of a being he was - a human being - NOT A MAN; Cain was the first human being.
As an aside, 'Hu' from the Hebrew/Gaelic tongue means 'serpent' so a hu-man is a serpent-man - a descendant
of Cain. A man therefore is NOT a hu-man being and a hu-man being is NOT a man. This is why Yashua
Anointed was known as The Son of Man - a Son of Adam.

Moreover, and that being the case, what was Eve really saying when she said she had: "Gotten a man from the Lord?"
This KJV corrupted evidence also raises another question, how did Eve come to the conclusion that Cain was a gift from
The Lord.
We know that Adam and Eve's sin in The Garden was sexual in nature, because they covered sexual
regions with aprons to hide their shame. This means that Eve must have had a good idea of whose child she
was carrying in her womb.
That being the case, how did she come to the conclusion that it was a gift from the Lord?
How does that make any sense?
Furthermore, how did the translators of the KJV think they were going to get away with this stupid nonsense - the
nonsense of Eve's statement that: "she had gotten a man from the Lord"? Was it a case that they thought she was
completely naïve, I don't think so, because all they wanted to do was hide the truth that Cain was literally a son of the
Devil. Why did they want to do that and what did they have to gain from such devious behaviour?  We then have to ask
ourselves if Cain and Abel were twins, for it appears that
Adam 'knows' Eve once only.
So if Eve did have twins, could these twins have had different fathers - a phenomenon known in medical terms today as
superfetation? Well, it has been known, and more often than we might at first think. A little Google search will soon
reveal and confirm to you this not so uncommon anatomical phenomenon. Therefore, Cain and Abel could have been
twins with the Devil as Cain's father, and Adam as Abel's father. The thing is, twins or not, it's the two seeds or seed lines
that matter here, nothing else, for this is the core of the matter.
1 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.
Notice in this verse of John's letter we have Cain who was
"of that wicked one". The word 'of' here in Strong's
Concordance means 'origin', so Cain's "origins" are of the Devil which, again, points to him being the Devil's
More evidence, too, is made plain through the genealogy of Adam in Genesis 5. Notice, you will not find Cain's
name mentioned in that genealogy, why is that? Well, quite obviously, because Cain was not Adam's child.
Gen 5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his
name Seth.
Now why did Moses write this verse like that? Why, to draw to our attention the fact that Seth was made in Adam's own
likeness, after his own image, and why make special reference to that? What other image could Eve have born in her
womb, if it was not in Adam's image and in his likeness!!?? Well obviously, this verse is telling us without actually saying it,
that of the two sons Cain and Abel, Abel now deceased, only one of them was in Adam's image and in his likeness - Abel.
Elsewhere in the Holy Scriptures it tells us that Seth is a child born to Adam and Eve to take Abel's place:
Gen 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath
appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
So this means that from Adam we have Abel (murdered) and then Seth who begat Enos, who begat Cainan, who begat
Mahalaleel, who begat Jared, who begat Enoch, who begat Methuselah, who begat Lamech
and who begat Noah. So
there we have it, the Sethitic line from Adam to Noah.
Right, I will now copy here what it says in documents known as the Aramaic Targum(s). Those of you not familiar with these
writings, the Aramaic Targums are ancient Jewish writings dating from around the time of the Jews captivity in Babylon, so
this means they date from around 550 BC. In general these writings are blasphemous in their content and I would not
recommend them to Christian brothers and sisters at all. Having said that we cannot conclude that everything written
therein is error for Truth can be found in the most unlikely of places e.g. the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were
found. OK, so here is the writing:
And Adam knew that his wife Eve had conceived from Sammael the angel (of death) and she became pregnant
and bore Cain. And she said: "I have got a man from the angel of the LORD."
Now here we can plainly see this verse has a completely different narrative altogether and tells us a very different story
from the corrupted meaningless nonsense in the KJV. It also begins to make some sense. We know that the Devil was
always going to try and thwart The Lord's plans for his pinnacle of creation - mankind. We are, after all, made in Their
Image and what better way to thwart that plan than by literally polluting The Godhead's creation by intercourse with His
creation, Eve. Notice how Eve's statement has changed and the naïvety of her KJV statement revealed for what it is - the
work of evil dissemblers via their agenda based translations.
Returning once more to the KJV, notice, too, how Eve is known as the "Mother of All Living" but Adam is not
known as the 'father of all living':
Gen 3:20
And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
The word 'was' here should more accurately be translated 'was to become' and of course she did become the mother of all
living, but Adam is nowhere known as the 'father of all living'.
This, once again, tells us that Eve sired children from
another source other than Adam, and, of course, that source was The Devil.
If we now return to Genesis 4:1-2 we can then see that after Eve conceived Cain she then bare Abel, but it doesn't say
how long the interval between the two conceptions was, so as I said earlier some commentators say Cain and Abel were
twins, others that Abel followed swiftly nine months later. Either way they were of a similar age and grew up together, one,
Abel, being a keeper of sheep and the other, Cain, a tiller of the ground.
The story then continues with Cain's infamous wicked act of murdering his half-brother, but what was behind this act?

The Mark of Cain

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 was the
unsatisfactory offering of Cain symbolic of a deeper malaise within Cain, for we must not forget who his physical 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.
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 i.e. 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 partially with
his hands. He had to plant the crops he offered, as opposed to Abel's which was made totally without his hands and by
Yashua Anointed is the Stone or Rock (please note, all you Roman Catholics) hewn without hands.
Cain's offering was a tarnished offering, an insulting offering, and Abel's was unspotted and perfect, a lamb of the firstlings
of his flock,
a type of the Passover Lamb with its shed blood that soaked into the ground.
There was something else, too, within this rebellion of Cain, for it was not just spiritual. The spiritual dimension to all this
was only the half of it, for be aware, the rebellious physical descendants of Cain are still with us today, as is his name. But
how can a spirit, six thousand years old, have influence over us today, I hear you say? Again, quite simply, because it was
spirit of the Devil alive in Cain and a spirit would be carried over and through The Flood through Ham and
his sinful shenanigans.

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 he was going to allow his upstart son of man half brother to have any authority over
Cain, don't forget, was a demonic hybrid - a half heavenly serpent being and half manly being - a 'hu-man'
being, so no doubt considered himself far superior to his earthly, fully man, half brother.
Furthermore, 'hu' from the Hebrew/Gaelic tongue means 'serpent' so a 'hu-man' is a 'serpent-man' and NOT a
man. Mankind and humankind are two very different species.
Moreover, this spirit was Satan's spirit, imparted to Cain by his father The Devil. Satan the Devil knew God's plan would
eventually mean men resurrected to Spirit status, a status that would give resurrected Spiritual men authority over him and
his followers 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 came 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 Yashua Anointed'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.
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 of God (Born Again) and have a close brotherly relationship with Yashua
Anointed who then teaches us His ways and His logic.

Cain's ways are not Yashua Anointed's ways, for Yashua Anointed is The Way. Cain's ways involve philosophy and the
intellect which man has emulated to his downfall. This means man's pride and vanity, through his reliance on his own logic
and reasoning, has created nothing but blasphemous error when it comes to matters Scriptural and Spiritual. In turn, this
mindset, a mindset of philosophical intellectual reasoning has separated man from his Creator.
A good example of this phenomena was a Canaanite Jew by the name of Philo who operated out of Alexandria in Egypt in
the first century AD, from whence we get the word 'philosophy'. He groomed and 'educated' the counterfeiting 'church
fathers', so called, who then infiltrated the first century church in order to corrupt it and then go off in order to start their
This Philo being a Canaanite Jew made him a descendant of Cain.

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 totally so that it would no longer yield any
crops at all and all men would know that Cain was to blame for it 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 his half-brother mankind for the rest of his days and, as a poverty
stricken vagabond at that. Unsurprisingly, this 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 his half-brother 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
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
Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron:
and the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah.
Now this Naamah is reputed to have been Noah's wife,
but the Holy Scriptures again go stone cold on this topic, for
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 of Cain being mentioned post-Flood via the name of a tribe of people known as the
Kenites. 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 there is a definite 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.
