Genesis 4:1 "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord."

Eve was in a period of innocence here. In the Hebrew text it states; "ish eth Yehovah". This literal version translates, "with the help of Yehovah".

Genesis 4:2 "And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground."

It's strange that Cain would draw the duties which Adam was created for. The word "again" in the Hebrew text was "Yacaph", #3254 in the Strong's Hebrew dictionary; "to continue, conceive again, to continue to do the same thing." What happens when a woman gives birth to one child, and "Continues to do the same thing" that she is doing? Of course, she has twins. These are not identical twins that Eve bare, for they had two different fathers; as we saw in the study of chapter three.

These were not identical twins, born in the same bag of water, but paternal twins, born in separate bags of water, and with two different fathers. They were conceived at two separate conceptions. There is no great mystery in that conception. So we see then that Eve continued in labor with her two twins.

Genesis 4:3 "And in Process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord."

It doesn't say, "first fruit offering".

Genesis 4:4 "And Abel he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:"

The firstlings" are the prime, the first and the best of his flock to be the offering to the Lord. That is doing it God's way, "The first fruits are the Lords" [Deuteronomy 18:1-5]. Abel gave a proper offering to the Lord.

Cain hung on to his best and gave only unneeded portion of his crop to God Both Cain and Abel were the same age, matured at the same time, and were obligated at the same time to present their offerings to the Almighty Father.

Genesis 4:5 "But unto Cain and to his offering He had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell."

We see here that Cain's very first religious act brought about a falling away from God.

Genesis 4:6 "And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

Genesis 4:7 "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him."

To correctly translate this from the Hebrew to common language; "If you were honest, I would accept your offering." Where did Cain acquire all this anger, sin and dishonesty? Of course it was from his true father, Satan.

Genesis 4:8 "And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."

Genesis 4:9 "And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother?" And he said, "I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?"

Cain knew what happened to Abel, for He slew him. Cain lied to God, which is another trait he received from his father Satan. The Lord knew what happened to Abel. Jesus even talked about what happened to Abel when confronted by the "Kenite" scribes and Pharisees of His day.

John 8:44 "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."

"Ye", are the "Kenites" that lived with the tribe of Judah, and called themselves Jews, yet they are the simply the sons of Cain [Kenites]. Jesus addressed them and called them exactly what they are.

We know that Jesus was speaking of Cain that we just read about in Genesis 4:8 and 9, Where did all this corruptness begin? It began with with Cain's father Satan, and Jesus knew it and spoke it; "When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of it [lies]". The Devil, [Satan] is the father of Cain, who is the father of the Kenites. Go to Strong's Hebrew dictionary, # 7014; "Qayin, Kah'-yin; Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Pal, and of an Oriental tribe:-Cain, Kenite".

Then in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary # 7017; "Qeyniy, kay-nee'; or Qiyniy, (I Chronicles 2:55), patron from 7014, a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:-Kenite".

John 8:45 "And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not.

Jesus is telling these Kenites that they simply won't believe what He has to say to them.

John 8:46 "Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe Me?

Jesus Christ had walked the earth, teaching and healing people; and even bringing people back to life. And Jesus asked these pack of Kenites, "What sin is that?"

John 8:47 "He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God."

They are not of God because they are of their father Satan. So we see that the Kenites were very present in Jesus day, just as they are today.

Genesis 4:10 "And He said, "What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto Me from the ground."

His body was in the ground, but his Spirit [soul] is with God. Ecclesiastes 12:7 tells us that at death, the soul goes instantly to be with the Father.

Genesis 4:11 "And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;"

This verse documents that from this point in time the ground is cursed to Cain and his descendents. John speaks of this in I John 3, as does Jesus in Matthew 23.

I John 3:11 "For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another."

This message came from the beginning, from the garden of Eden.

I John 3:12 "Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous."

"Of that wicked one," gives us again the reference that Cain was the offspring of Satan, and Cain's children are also the offspring of the wicked one, who is the Devil, the serpent, or by whatever name you wish to call him.

I John 3:13 "Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you."

If you tell the truth the world, and the people of the world will hate you. Is it any wonder the religious leaders refuse to listen to Jesus and the Apostles. They were the offspring of Cain, and the Devil, and the truth and the light of God's word was offensive to them.

The simplicity of Christ's teaching and His Word is foolishness to them. As we see in Matthew 13:13, it is not intended for their ears, and they are totally blind to God's Word. Jesus said, "because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand."

Matthew 13:14 "And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:"

Matthew 13:15 "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them."

These are people God does not intend to offer His salvation to in this earth age. If they do hear and confess though, God will save them. Though it sounds like a contradiction; it is not. In the churches today the Kenites have so distorted the Word of God with fairy tales, and false teaching, that God's people don't even know they have to be on guard against the Kenites. Confusion in the church is at an all time high, as most of the church leaders now even believe that God respects and allows Sodomites in His house of worship. Today good has become bad, and they have turned God's hatred into love. The world is being turned up side down.

This reign of Godless deception is everywhere, and most Christians are just to blind to see what is upon them. We must understand that it is Satan that is using his children in this final generation, to spread deception to blind all but the elect of God.

In Matthew 23 Jesus goes through the eight woes, that are the exact opposite of the eight blessings that Jesus gave in the "sermon on the Mound", in Matthew 5. At the end of giving the eight woes, Jesus called the scribes and Pharisees, "ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how cany ye escape the damnation of hell?" [Matthew 23:33]. Jesus told them; "Wherefore, ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. [Matthew 23:31]"

Matthew 23:35 "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar."

These are the same Kenites, for they do not change from generation to generation. Just as Cain was in the beginning, and through the generations of the Prophets and Jesus time; and continuing to this present day, their nature has not changed. Today, some of these vipers even call themselves, "The right reverend", or "Rabbi", or even "your Honor".

Though the "sons of Judah" have received the blame, however, the murderers of our Lord were these same offspring of Cain, the Kenites, who took over the Scribe's duties.

I Chronicles 2:55 "And the familes of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez [Jerusalem]; The Tirathites, the Shimaethites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab."

They gained control of the entire priesthood at the time the Jews came out of Babylon, as Ezra recordes in Ezra 2:43-65; and Nehemiah records in Nehemiah 7:46-65. In Babylon these "Nethinims" [or foreigners] of Kenites infiltrated the Jewish population and bound them in usury, and religious bonds. These "Nethinims" are the descendents of the Gibeonites, and they go by many names, such as Rachabites, Perezites, and so on, however they are all the same people. Those Kenites are the ones that returned and lived with the tribe of Judah [The House of Judah] and were called Jews also.

The term "Jews" is a reference to the people who lived in the land of the small nation of Judah, and was comprised of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with a part of the tribe of Levi, and a host of foreigners of the Kenite [Oriental] race.

This is why it is important for us to understand what went on in the Garden of Eden, between Eve and Satan. It is members to that race of Kenites, or Gibeonites that has, and is today, binding God's people into bondage. They are the ones that Jeremiah calls the bad figs, in Jeremiah 24:1-12, where he prophesied that both the good and bad [evil] figs would return to Jerusalem in the last days. These figs are all the Jews, which are separated into two baskets. One basket contains the "true House of Judah", while the other basket of evil figs, or bad Jews, are those the Bible calls "Kenites", or "Nethinims". The bad figs are the children of Satan, through "Cain".

The entire plan of God relies upon your knowledge of these acts that happened in the garden of Eden, which brought sin into the world. And that sin will always be with us, along with that Satanic, Luciferian blood line. They will be with us until this world age is over and Satan is taken away for good. Why? Because enmity was put between the seed of Eve [Christ], and the seed of the serpent [The Kenites through their father Cain] (Genesis 3:15).

Genesis 4:12 "When thou tillest the ground, it shall no henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth."

This is God's curse on Cain and his children. What is this curse placed on Cain and the Kenites? They simply can not succeed in agriculture. If they are involved in farming, it is in the sale end, and they must have others grow the crops. The ground will not produce for them. They own it, and pay for it, but others must do the work.

Genesis 4:13 "And Cain said unto the Lord, "My punishment is greater than I can bear."

Genesis 4:14 "Behold, Thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from Thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass that every one that findeth me shall slay me."

Cain is making this statement before he was driven from the garden of Eden, yet, he knew there were other races and peoples on the earth. The statement itself draws that conclusion, for at that time it was only Adam, Eve and Cain, for he had slain his brother Abel. "...every one that findeth me shall slay me."; indicates Cain knew of the other races of the sixth day creation.

Genesis 4:15 "And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold." And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him."

The command is "thou shalt do no murder". God placed a mark upon Cain and that "mark" is present today. That "mark" of Cain in these latter days, is the "mark of the beast, spoken of in Revelation 13:14-18. This is why God tells us to "count" the number, to know them.

To count is not as you would count, like 1, 2, 3 and so on, but it comes from the word "Stigma" in the Greek. It is to "count using stones worn smooth over a long period of time." That time dates all the way back to the garden of Eden, when Cain was conceived. It is to count and enumerate the children, for where ever Cain's children are, there you will find their father [Satan], even to our last and final generation. It is through this counting and stones worn smooth [the Kenites], that most Christians will willfully accept the Antichrist, Satan, as their Messiah. The Antichrist is the "instead-of-Jesus".

The "mark of the beast" is in your mind, it is being deceived into thinking that the first Christ to come to earth in the end generation as Jesus, and that means they do not know Satan and his fallen angels come first. Jesus Christ comes at the sounding of the seventh and final trumpet, when the tribulation of Satan is all over. Satan will arrive as the Antichrist at the sounding of the fifth trumpet [Revelation 9:1-4], and this is the start of the mass apostasy, when most Christians will be deceived.

The "mark in the right hand" is doing the Antichrist's work. It is becoming a part of, and bringing others into the Antichrist's one world religious order.

Genesis 4:16 "And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden."

Notice that there is another land and another nation called "Nod". Yet according to most teachings, there is only three people living on earth to this time. These other people upon the earth are those of the sixth day creation of Genesis 1:28.

Genesis 4:17 "And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch."

Cain's wife was not a seed, but a woman and offspring of the earlier creation. You will notice a strange thing that starts here, and continues through the Scriptures. You are reading in the fourth chapter a genealogy of Cain. Then in the fifth Chapter we will come to the genealogy of Adam. You will not find Cain in the genealogy of Adam, for there is no record of Cain anywhere as being of Adam's genealogy. Remember when even Jesus told us that Cain, the first murderer, was of "his father the Devil".

God gave Cain and Adam the approximate same number of children, and Cain will name his children similar names. The difference is in the name ending "el" of Cain's children, and "ah" in Adam's children's offspring. Most people just skip over names, and take their message, and in these latter days can lead you into deception. So this "Enoch" is not an offspring of Adam, but the son of Cain.

Genesis 4:18 "And unto enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech."

Again notice the ending of these names, they all end in el, and are named after Adams children. All these children are the offspring of Satan, through Cain. They are not of the lineage of Jesus, that we read about in Luke 3:23-38.

Genesis 4:19 "And Lamech took unto him two wives; the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

Genesis 4:20 "And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle."

They roamed the with their cattle, not as farmers and ranchers. These are the offspring of Cain.

Genesis 4:21 "And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ."

Even to this day, you will find the music world saturated with these Kenites, the sons of "Jabal". We are still talking about the children of Cain, which is of the seed of Satan. How would you like to take a vow to one of them, thinking you are taking a vow to a Son of God.

Genesis 4:22 "And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah."

"Tubal-Cain", means "a flowing from Cain", in the Hebrew text.

Genesis 4:23 "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."

Genesis 4:24 "If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, Truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold."

This murdering continues even to this day. The murder in the generation of Lamech is instilled throughout all generations of these Kenites, for that is a trait of their father Satan, as it was with his son Cain. Why? Because the wickedness of Satan is part of the character and nature passed on to Cain.

Genesis 4:25 "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew."

This is after the death of Abel; for Abel is dead, murdered by his brother Cain. Abel had no children. The second son of Adam is "Seth", and in the Hebrew text it means "appointed", and comes from the word "Sheth" which is translated to "substituted".

Genesis 4:26 "And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos; Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord."

"Enos" means "frail", or "mortal" man. When men "began" to "call upon the name of the Lord"; this is not when they started to worship God. Abel worshipped God when He built an altar to offer his first fruits unto the Lord. But here: "began to call upon {their other gods] by the name of Jehovah". Another way of putting it is that "they begin profanely to call upon the name of the Lord"; as it is worded in the Massorah text.

Enos, though the son of Seth, is included here because he went the way of Cain. What begun here was the profanity of the "Name of Jehovah". Their idols, the sun and stars being worshipped, and what ever else they bowed to, became their god that they called "Jehovah". The name "Jehovah" became a generic form for what ever you want to worship, and not the "one true God, the creator of all things in Heaven and on earth".

The ancient Jewish Prophets and writers supplied the description of the form "their gods". The "Targum of Onkel" explains it: "Then in his days the sons of men desisted from praying in the name of the Lord."

In "The Commentary on the Mishna", a part of the Talmud, A.D. 1168; in the treatise on idolatry, gives the most probable account of the origin of idolatry in the days of Enos. "The name `Enos' reflects his sickened condition in mind as in his spiritual condition."

Though "Enos" brought on idolatry in his ways, he still was not a murderer, or follow the heathen customs of Cain, of building cities, and so on.
