Pamphlet 1760 Figtree kc 4-1
What ever happened to Cain after he "went out from the presence of the LORD"?
Do you know? And why is it we are given the beginning of his posterity* in chapter four of Genesis? The answer to the latter question is so that the wise of this final generation would be able to pick up on that genealogy and know who the enemies of Christianity are? Remember, God said to the serpent in Gen. 3:15 "I will put enmity between your seed (children) and her (seed)"! That enmity exists to this day!
Note: If every human being on earth except Noah and his family were wiped out during the Flood of Noah, as is so commonly believed and erroneously taught, there would be no posterity of Cain after that event, would there? Yet we shall see in this study that his offspring did survive because they are found to be alive and well throughout the scriptures continuing to do the work of their father the devil, even to this very day. If you would like to learn more about the Flood of Noah, why God brought it upon the earth, and learn from scriptural documentation how it is that all the races including the sons of Cain survived that flood, then log unto our Genesis series of pamphlets listed in the table of contents to the left of this screen.
So how is it that the wise are to know and understand who Cain's descendents are in this final generation? We are simply to trace them throughout the scriptures, and if we do, they will become visible to the discerner in secular history as well! This is important because their identity is crucial in order to understand the in-depth meaning of the Parable of the Fig Tree. That is why we have spent so much time documenting who the tares are! Because you see, tares are also very "naughty figs" (Jer. 24:2). Yes, there are two types of figs, good figs and bad figs, both of which are part of the "planting" as we will see when we get to Jeremiah 24.
Let us now see what happened to Cain and trace his children throughout the scriptures.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
