"The Kenites"

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 entered in
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 or substituted 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)

Enoch                                      Enos

Irad                                        Jared

   Mehujael                                Mahalaleel

    Methusael                               Methuselah

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.)

Genesis 6:9
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
To be perfect in his "generations" simply means
that he and his family had pure pedigrees
and were not mixed with the Nephilim,
the fallen angels called the "sons of God" in Gen. 6:2.
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.
However, Satan's plan to destroy the daughters of Adam also failed
because God brought about the flood of Noah to rid the world of the giants
and the wickedness brought upon the earth by the fallen angels.

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.

Yes, they survived "Noah's flood"!  And you were taught that Noah's flood covered the whole earth!
1 Chron. 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenitesthat came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.
Note: First Chronicles was written thousands of years after Noah's flood and we find descendants of Cain present on earth. See pamphlet #1761

They even believe the lie that our brother Judah was responsible for the crucifixion
when it was actually the son's of Cain!

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!

John 8:33
They answered Him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
The "they" in this verse are the Pharisees (vs. 13).
[37] I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
Christ knew they were liars and murderers who "claimed" (see vs. 39) to be Abraham's seed, i.e. his offspring,
and He thus exposed and confronted them about BOTH
by saying "I know you say you are Abraham's seed", but you seek to kill me.
[38] I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
If you have learned the Parable of the Tares then you know there are two "fathers".

"The Parable of the Tares"
in order to understand
[39] 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.
The "if" documents that Christ knew they were NOT children of Abraham, though they claimed to be.
[40] 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.

[41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

[42] 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.

[43] Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

[44] 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.

The understanding of the simple explanation of the Parable of Tares
does not allow this verse to be "spiritualized away"
any more than it allows one to "spiritualize away"
the fact that many today also claim to be of Abraham (through Judah, i.e. Jews)
but they ARE NOT for they too are a bunch of liars.

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).

Rev. 2:9
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.
The blasphemous kenites make the same "claim" today
that they are of Judah (Abraham's seed) and even call themselves "God's chosen people!"

Don't you believe it?

Rev. 3:9
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.
By the way,
these are the only two churches Christ found no fault with.
The rest had some severe problems they needed to work on and overcome!
That's so true today!
