We cover Genesis 4 and 5, a story of Cain and Able. Cain commits the first murder, as Able is the first death in the Bible to die from his brother's rage and jealousy. God rejected Cain's crop offering while accepting Abel's best meat offering from his flock. Why did God reject Cain's offering?
By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain offered. Through this he was approved as righteous, with God testifying concerning his gifts. He still speaks through his faith, though he is dead.
Why did Cain commit murder?
For this is the message that you heard from the beginning: We should love one another, not like Cain, who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s works were righteous. 1 John 3:11-12 MEV.
The Bible explains in later books that Cain's works were wicked and his spirit was of the devil, i.e., the serpent's seed. This is a spiritual condition where men do not repent of their sins but continue practicing them.
Little children, let no one deceive you. The one who does righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous. Whoever practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not practice sin, for His seed remains in him. And he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. In this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: Whoever does not live in righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. 1 John 3:7-10 MEV.
Can you see where we are today, where sins abound, and people accept their evil practices?
Do not marvel, my brothers, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love his brother remains in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him. 1 John 3:13-15 MEV.
Let's continue with these Two Witnesses series, Genesis 4-5, Cain Kills Able, and see how this story unfolds. Thanks to Mark, a/k/a MrE, we get more insight into why God rejected Cain's offering. "--Giving God your best." Cain represented the seed of the serpent, while Seth represented the seed of the woman.
