Genesis 4

Genesis 4:1-26. After The Fall.

1-16. Satan and Adams sons: Cain and Able

1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

(Cain = acquisition, possession. A man = Heb. 'ish. Lit. "a man with the help of". Heb. 'ish 'eth Yehovah. Cp. Luke 2:11. This literal version translates, "with the help of Yahaveh.)

2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

(Again = continued in labor. They were paternal twins. Cain being of Satan's seed, Abel of Adam's seed. Two separate bags of water. two separate conceptions. See 1 Chron. 2:55, the Kenites = the sons of Cain, came through the flood. The name Abel = breath, vapor, transitory, probably because of the shortness of his life.)

3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

(The fruit of the ground was the product of the curse. What did Cain plant? - tares, symbolic of his [Satan's] own family. It was a sacrifice to Yehovah. Most religious, but his own "way"; but not the first fruits as Abel.)

4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

(The Lord accepting it by fire Divinely sent, Lev. 9:24. Judg. 6:21. 1 Kings 18:38. 1 Chron. 21:26. 2 Chron. 7:1; and cp. Ps. 20:3, and Heb.11:4.)

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

(We see here that Cain's very first religious act brought about a falling away from God.)

6 And the LORD said unto Cain, "Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

(Question asked not for information or for an answer. You can normally "read people like a book" by their countenance. Here comes God's advise to Cain who was of the wicked on [1 John 3:12])

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."

(God is fair. Even Cain could have been accepted, if he had met the conditions. God is also fair in judgment. The choice is yours. God will keep His promises, if you do well. Each of us are responsible for our own blessings or chastisement. Which do you deserve? Satan also uses "if". See Matthew 4. Where did Cain acquire all this anger, sin and dishonesty? Of course it was from his true father, Satan.)

8 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.

("Religion" is and ever has been the greatest cause of blood-shedding. Cp. 3:15 where the war is on. See Matt. 23:33-35, John 8:44.)

9 And the LORD said unto Cain, "Where is Abel thy brother?" And he said, "I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

(He knew, he was lying to God.)

10 And He said, "What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto Me from the ground.

(Blood = Heb. bloods, denoting his posterity, see Matt.23:35.)

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

(Heb. idiom for murder. This verse documents that from this point in time the ground is cursed to Cain and his descendents. John speaks of this in I John 3, as does Jesus in Matthew 23.)

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."

(Even to this day this is true of them. They became builders of cities. This is God's curse on Cain and his children. What is this curse placed on Cain and the Kenites? They simply can not succeed in agriculture. If they are involved in farming, it is in the sale end, and they must have others grow the crops. The ground will not produce for them. They own it, and pay for it, but others must do the work.)

13 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."

(where did these come from? Answer: the 6th day CREATION, see 1:27,28. Adam and Eve were not first, they were FORMED on the 8th day.)

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.

God placed a mark upon Cain and that "mark" is present today. That "mark" of Cain in these latter days, is the "mark of the beast, spoken of in Revelation 13:14-18. This is why God tells us to "count" the number, to know them.

To count is not as you would count, like 1, 2, 3 and so on, but it comes from the word "Stigma" in the Greek. It is to "count using stones worn smooth over a long period of time." That time dates all the way back to the garden of Eden, when Cain was conceived. It is to count and enumerate the children, for where ever Cain's children are, there you will find their father [Satan], even to our last and final generation. It is through this counting and stones worn smooth [the Kenites], that most Christians will willfully accept the Antichrist, Satan, as their Messiah. The Antichrist is the "instead-of-Jesus".

The "mark of the beast" is in your mind, it is being deceived into thinking that the first Christ to come to earth in the end generation as Jesus, and that means they do not know Satan and his fallen angels come first. Jesus Christ comes at the sounding of the seventh and final trumpet, when the tribulation of Satan is all over. Satan will arrive as the Antichrist at the sounding of the fifth trumpet [Revelation 9:1-4], and this is the start of the mass apostasy, when most Christians will be deceived.

The "mark in the right hand" is doing the Antichrist's work. It is becoming a part of, and bringing others into the Antichrist's one world religious order.

16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD,

(i.e. the Tabernacle placed by God for His worship, where offerings were brought.)

and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

(Notice that there is another land and another nation called "Nod". Yet according to most teachings, there is only three people living on earth to this time. These other people upon the earth are those of the sixth day creation of Genesis 1:27,28.)

Genesis 4:17-24. Cain's son: Enoch.

17 And Cain knew his wife;

(she was from the sixth day creation. See 1:27,28.)

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.

(Not the same Enoch of 5:18. The word means dedicated or teaching [what? evil?]. See v.26. One positive, one negative. War between 2 different seeds. You will notice a strange thing that starts here, and continues through the Scriptures. You are reading in the fourth chapter a genealogy of Cain. Then in the fifth Chapter we will come to the genealogy of Adam. You will not find Cain in the genealogy of Adam, for there is no record of Cain anywhere as being of Adam's genealogy. Remember when even Jesus told us that Cain, the first murderer, was of "his father the Devil".

God gave Cain and Adam the approximate same number of children, and Cain will name his children similar names. The difference is in the name ending "el" of Cain's children, and "ah" in Adam's children's offspring. Most people just skip over names, and take their message, and in these latter days can lead you into deception. So this "Enoch" is not an offspring of Adam, but the son of Cain.)

18 And unto Enoch was born Irad (= city of witness, fleet): and Irad begat Mehujael (= smitten of God): and Mehujael begat Methusael (= man of God): and Methusael begat Lamech.

(= powerful, 7th from Adam in Cain's line. Sounds same as Adams genealogy. Be careful. God is trying to warn you that Satan and his seed are great pretenders. Satan is deceptive. See v.26)

19 And Lamech took unto him two wives (first polygamist): the name of the one was Adah (= ornament, beauty), and the name of the other Zillah (= shade).

20 And Adah bare Jabal (= flowing. Prime root of the flood of lies): he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

(They roamed with their cattle, not as farmers and ranchers.)

21 And his brother's name was Jubal (= joyful sound): he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

(The well-known "Pan's pipe")

22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain (= flowing from Cain, flood coming. Come into my web of lies. Notice here we have the 3 Baal brothers, symbolic of opposite of the Holy Trinity), an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron (turns them into idols): and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah (= pleasant).

23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, "Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

(Bragging about murdering these. Serving God? No way!)

24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold."

(This murdering continues even to this day. The murder in the generation of Lamech is instilled throughout all generations of these Kenites, for that is a trait of their father Satan, as it was with his son Cain. Why? Because the wickedness of Satan is part of the character and nature passed on to Cain.)

Genesis 4:25. Adam's son: Seth.

25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth (= substituted, appointed, compensation): For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed in the stead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

(This is after the death of Abel; for Abel is dead, murdered by his brother Cain. Abel had no children.)

Genesis 4:26 Seth's son: Enos.

26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos (=frail, incurable): then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

(= began to call [Heb. cahal-verb = to bore, to wound, to profane, to drive a wedge between] upon their gods by the name of Yehovah, or "began profanely to call upon the name of Yehovah. Enos, though son of Seth, is included here because he went in "the way of Cain". They began to mix with the fallen angels. Turning to other ways of belief because of Cains offspring. This is what Enoch [of Adam's genealogy] prophesied against.)
