A Study on the Two Fathers 
By Servant of God

In the Bible we have two fathers, the FAKE father and the REAL Father.
King James: Malachi 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Green's Interlinear: Malachi 4:5 Behold, I am sending you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Jehovah.
This sets a time line. God said He would send the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
we know that Elijah will be one of the two witnesses that God will send a few days before the Antichrist arrives in Jerusalem.
King James:  Malachi 4:6 And he (Elijah) shall turn the heart of the FATHERS to the children (sons) and the heart of the children (sons) to THEIR FATHERS, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Green's Interlinear: Malachi 4:5 And He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the sons, and the heart of the sons to their fathers, that I not come and strike the earth with utter destruction.
So we have two fathers, one is a fake father, (the serpent, Satan, Antichrist) and one is the real Father, (LORD, GOD ALMIGHTY)
Now the Kenites (sons of Cain, who is of his father the devil) are the children of the fake father, and the children of the real Father (GOD) are the children of the Kingdom.
Let's go to Matthew 13 and read about the parable of the sower and the tares.  if you do not understand this parable, you will not understand any of Christ's parables.
In Matthew 13 after verse 35 Christ is explaining the parable to the disciples.  If we go to verses 10, 11 and 13, Christ will explain why He spoke in parables.
Matthew 13:10  And the disciples came, and said unto Him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto YOU to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is NOT given.
Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables; because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the MULTITUDE in parables; and without a parable spake He not unto them:
Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.  

(foundation = overthrow, see Gen 1. 2  and Ap. 146 of the Companion Bible) quoted from PSALMS 78:2
Matthew 13:36  Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 
Matthew 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

seed = Strong's: G4690  Transliteration: sperma Definition: something sown that is seed (including the male sperm); by implication offspring;
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Matthew 13:39  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Matthew 13:40  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Matthew 13:41  The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 
Matthew 13:42  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
So we see that the children (tares) of the wicked one (Devil) Fake father, are cast into a furnace of fire.
This goes all the way back into the garden of Eden.
Genesis 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent (fake father) because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all they days of thy life:
The next verse is the first great promise and prophecy of the Bible.

Genesis 3:15  And I (GOD) will put enmity (Strong's: H342 Bible Usage: {enmity} hatred. Definition hostility) between thee (serpent) and the woman (Eve) and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.
The word SEED is Strong's :H2233 Transliteration: zeraʻ Bible Usage: X-(idiom) {carnally} {child} {fruitful} seed ({-time}) sowing-time. Definition:seed; figuratively {fruit} plant: sowing {time} posterity
So you see here God was talking about children, the children (seed) of the serpent fake father and the children (seed) of the woman from the real Father.
God said that He would put enmity (hostility) between the serpent seed (children) and the woman's seed (children)
We find the first enmity (hostility) between the serpent's seed and the woman's in Genesis 4:8.
Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother (half brother) and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and SLEW HIM. 
Cain and Abel were twins, Cain was of the fake father and was the first murder and Abel was of the real Father, children of God.
In John chapter 8:42 to 45 Jesus is talking to the Scribes and Pharisees, that they were of their father the devil (fake father).
John 8:42 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.
John 8:43  Why do ye not understand My speech? even because ye cannot hear My word.
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.
John 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Now let's go to 1 John 3:11:

1 John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
1 John 3:12   Not as Cain, WHO was of that wicked one (progeny), and slew his brother, And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
Now Cain is not in Adam's genealogy, Cain's is in Genesis chapter 4,  he is of the fake father, (serpent, devil) Adam's genealogy is in chapter 5.
Now back to the real Father:

Matthew 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father, Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And there you have the two fathers, the fake one, (serpent, devil, Satan) and the real one (GOD ALMIGHTY)
Elijah is coming and he is going to turn the hearts of the children back to their father's, which one are you going to turn your heart to? The fake father or the real Father, the choice is yours.
