ADAM AND EVE HAD MANY, MANY CHILDREN AND LIVED FOR OVER 900 YEARS!
GOD USED THEM TO POPULATE THE EARTH.
GENESIS CHAPTER 5.
Cain was born first. Cain was a tiller of the ground, this means he was a farmer.
Abel was a shepherd. He took care of sheep and animals of like nature.
God showed Adam and Eve and their boys the value of bringing a living creature for sacrifice to the Lord.
Parents are commanded by God to teach their children about the Lord. Children are commanded to listen!
God was not happy with Cain’s offering. The Bible says that Cain was very angry with God’s response.
Cain chose to bring his best to God, instead of obeying his word.
What was happening within Cain’s heart?
Jeremiah chapter 17 verse 9
God questioned Cain about the state of his heart and gave him a loving warning. If he would turn from his sinfulness he would be accepted.
A wrong attitude produced a wrong action.
God knew what Cain had done, He gave Cain opportunity to confess his wicked deed, by asking what had happened to Abel.Cain replied, “I know not, am I my brother’s baby sitter?”
CAN WE HIDE NUMBERS
OUR SIN 32:23
Cain was still not willing to repent. confess his wicked deed, by asking what had happened to Abel.
God cursed Cain from
the face of the earth.
Even then Cain complained about his punishment and felt sorry for himself instead of being sorry for his sin.
GOD SHOWED KINDNESS TO CAIN BY GIVING HIM A MARK, SO THAT ANY WHO FOUND HIM WOULD NOT KILL HIM.
HOW HAS GOD SHOWED HIS KINDNESS TO US TODAY?
Do we need to sacrifice animals to God today?
THE SON OF GOD 9:22
WHO LOVE ME AND
Who’s example will you follow? THE LORD.”
Cain or Abel
Gods way? Your way?
