Have you ever wondered why it is
that Cain is not listed in Adam's genealogy in chapter five of Genesis?
The answer is real simple if you have eyes to see the "hidden things" Christ revealed in the Parable of Tares.
You "see", it was the plan of God for this flesh age that the promised "Seed", Jesus Christ,
would come forth through Adam and his wife Eve.
Of course Satan knew that was the plan and so he cunningly
and tried to destroy the woman through whom Messiah would be brought forth
by planting his own seed (sperma), the result of which produced the "tares" beginning with Kayin (Cain).
Remember, it is written that you
must understand the Parable of the Sower
in which Christ reveals things hidden even from the "foundation of the world",
else you will not be able to understand any of His parables.
And it is through the Parable of
the Tares that we know
that Cain was not of Adam's seed but rather of the seed of the wicked one
which is precisely why Cain has his own "seed line" listed in chapter four of Genesis
while Adam's "seed line" is listed in chapter five beginning with Seth.
In fact, the name "Seth" means appointed
for God raised him up in Abel's stead
because Cain murdered Abel, his half-brother who was Adam's first son!
Furthermore, when you examine
and compare the two separate genealogies
you will discover that the names are very similar just as the "tares" look and appear like "wheat" to most Christians
who do not have eyes to see nor ears to hear the simplicity of the Parable of the Sower.
Cain's Lineage (Kenites) Adam's Lineage (Adamites)
(Genesis 4) (Genesis 5)
Then too, from the garden of Eden
throughout the Old Testament
and into the New we can read example after example
where Satan tried to destroy the seedline through which Jesus Christ would be born.
Even as soon as Genesis chapter
six we see Satan's evil ploy
where he sent his fallen angels (Nephilim) to intermarry with the daughters of Adam
to destroy the chances of the "Seed" being born.
That union between the angelic "sons
of God" and the flesh "daughters of Adam" produced giants
and it came to the point where only eight descendants of Adam
were left in the land to carry on the seedline through which Messiah would come.
Those "eight" were Noah and his
family who remained "pure blooded"
because they had not intermixed with the fallen angels.
(See appendixes 25 & 26 in the "Companion Bible", Kregel Publishing.)
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
generations, towledah, to-led-aw', Hebrew 8435; or toledah, to-led-aw'; from Hebrew 3205 (yalad); (plural only) descent, i.e. family; (figurative) history :- birth, generations.
We could go on and on with other examples of Satan's attempts
to prevent Messiah from being born, e.g.
Abraham & Sarah, Judah, etc., right up to Mary and Joseph!
Of course ultimately, Satan's murderous
children who are "of" their father Cain (Kayin),
called "Kayinites" or "Kenites" and who are NOT of our brother Judah,
would bring about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ even while claiming to be of the good "seed of Abraham"!
And you know what?
To this very day Satan's children claim to be "God's chosen people" and "of Abraham's seed"
and most Christians who are "blind" to Father's Word believe their lies to be true.
Let's read the discourse in John
8:33-44 between some kenites, i.e. sons of the Cain,
as they try to "pull the wool over the eyes" of Messiah to cause Him to believe that they are of Abraham's seed.
Notice that Jesus Christ doesn't buy into their pack of lies and so neither should you!
They answered Him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He sent me.
 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
You "see", it was Cain who was the
first murderer, right?
And these are the descendants of Cain to whom Christ is speaking!
The question is, are you familiar with the "tares" today who claim to be of Judah
(by heritage, i.e. by "seed") but ARE NOT?
Only two out of the 7 churches in Rev. 2 & 3 know
who they are in this final generation.
They are the Church of Smyrna (Rev. 2:9) and the Church of Philadelphia (Rev. 3:9).
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Don't you believe it?
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
