Pamphlet #6233 Genesis KC 12-1
Either you have eyes to see and
understand or you don't,
but it is the Word of God.
We learned in the first two verses of this fourth chapter of Genesis that Eve had twins.
The word "again" in verse two, means she "continued" in
and gave birth to Cain's brother, Abel.
We also learned that these two fraternal twins had separate
Cain was of his father, that wicked one, and Abel was Adam's son.
Then, for religious reasons, Cain murdered his brother Abel.
History documents that "Religion" is, and ever has been the greatest cause of blood-shedding.
Our Father then ousted this murderer
and Cain wandered into the land of Nod and took a wife from among the people who already inhabited the region.
Where did they come from?
They were created on the sixth day,
2,000 years (2 days) before eth' ha adam,
the man Adam and his wife Eve, who were formed on the eighth day.
Bible then devotes nearly two full chapters, in this Book of the Beginning,
to the specific genealogies of both Cain and Adam.
Different genealogies because Adam was not Cain's father!
you would think, should be enough to make the point that they are two totally
different genealogies, those of the "tares",
the children of Satan, and those of the "wheat",
the children of God
(Mat 13, Parable
of the Tares).
you have eyes to see and understand or you don't, but
it is the Word of God.
And so we continue in Genesis 4 with the posterity of Cain.
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.
 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
The examination of their fathers will document that they are two different individuals.
This process of examination is called "rightly dividing" the Word of God.
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.
