    God sayed to Cain thou shall rule over him. Over the sin . Cain not satan rule over the sin Cain had that choice
  • Hector D
    By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh Hebrews 11:4 . For it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul Leviticus 17:11 . Cain s offering of fruit was from the earth which was now cursed and quite unacceptable to God.
  • Hectord
    To Stan Jett. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother s righteous. I John 3:11-12 NKJV God rejected Cain because his works were evil.
  • Paul
    Able gave a burnt offering.,the one you call God delights in the sweet smell of the fat,who else delights in the smell?YOU, nothing like the smell of a barbecue,yet Cain offered the fruit of the ground which was provided to us for food ,I give you all things for food ,all the trees bearing fruit and herbs from the earth HALLO is there anybody listening

    GENESIS CHAPTER 9 VERSE 3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you even as the green herb have I given you all things.
  • Paul
    Yes thats true king james does like to change his mind,Oh by the way what secret societies did king james have associations with, he died at 58 I wonder why ,all is not what it seems
  • Rexford
    what does chapter 4 vs 7 mean?
  • Marken
    Rexford Gen.4:7 means , here God saying, if we does wrong the sin is at door, means not far from us n it will attract toward us, and it is under our control. sin stays at door, not outside of door nor inside of door, so God left us a choice to decide whether to let sin come inside of door or outside of door, it's up to you.
  • Hector D
    Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    In Genesis 4 we read that sin is a killer. When you read Romans 7:17-20 Paul knew Genesis 4 that sin is a killer. The problem man has is with sin with the devil. All sin is of the devil period 1st John 3:8. The problem with Christianity is that they are walking around with the spirit of the devil believing that it is God when it is not. Jesus came so we can be washed free and clear from all sin.

    I always wondered about these also. Cain brought to God first of the fruits of the ground. Did he bring the worse of his fruits. Rotting apples maybe? Kept the good stuff back? I was born on a farm and feel for Cain. I guess I just have to trust in God here but wish He explained it better so I could understand.
  • Lauren
    Stanjett: It's seems likely that God didn't reject Cain's offering because he held back or God doesn't like fruit look at the Feast of Firstfruits where God requests the people to offer their firstfruits to Him , it was because the "fruits of your labor" so to speak are not sufficient to fully appease God. Abel's lamb pointed to Christ, not his own works, and that explains the contrast.

    where did cains wife come from?
  • Brett
    Gen 5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
  • Rexford
    God made mankind Gen 1 vs 27 God made Adam 2 vs 7 and Eve vs 22. Is it possible theses are two separate events?
  • Paul
    The deciever, will always deceive,no thy self,Christ said I'm the light of the world,first day " LET THERE BE LIGHT",now you know,BEFORE ABRAHAM I AM .Christ told us there father was a lier and murderer from the beginning,GENESIS 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING
  • Ethan
    More modern translations of Bible use the word "Man" instead of "Adam" because Hebrew word used in the original text means "man" but is preserved as the Hebrew word " ha' Adam." Similarly, "Eve" in Hebrew meant something along the lines of "source of life," so doesn't necessarily denote one person named Eve, but may be a metaphor for "females." Could have been more than two people.
  • Methuselah
    ...angel e; genesis tells us that eve did in fact have "other sons and daughters"and tells us the same about the following genesis again
  • Bruce
    Eve had Children in The Garden( Genesis 3:20) She was The Mother of All Living. Other Translations Changed it to will become.
  • Angel E.
    Where did all these wives come from? Bible only speaks of Adam, Eve, Abel, and Cain. And later on Seth... Never did say Eve bear a daughter.
  • Elijah turnboe
    in the book of jasher and jubilees it talks about adams daughters. they were the wives of cain and abel
  • Angel E.
    Incest was prevalent during the genesis of the world, I guess.... and yet, later on there's the "Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's wife."
  • Adam
    Three theories I've heard so far... 1. God created more people at same time as Adam and Eve and just didn't happen to share those details 2. Adam and Eve bore more children not discussed- maybe females weren't mentioned. 3. Cain and Seth slept with Eve- the only woman existing? I personally think 1 is the case, because there was a land of Nod and suggests a village or something.
  • Rexford
    agreed explanation 1 most trustworthy
  • Tyler (Pt. 6 of 5)(I miscounted)
    6 cont. Sometimes depending on how we question his Word can lead to doubt and I didn’t want Brenda to fall down that path. We also need to concentrate more on what his Word does say. His Word doesn't say anything about Cain’s wife being his sister. Hopefully this will clarify the subject more clearly.
  • Tyler (Pt. 5 of 5)
    6 cont. So, knowing who she was is basically irrelevant because of the wickedness. Besides, which is more important? Knowing the identity of one woman or knowing what wickedness can bring? And the reason why I said, “don’t question God’s Word” is because we are to trust in the LORD for the answers.
  • Tyler (Pt. 4 of 5)
    6. (Maybe this will help better) The reason why I wrote my comment in the way it was written is because I’m mentioning the theme that is taking place after Cain murdered Abel and that theme is wickedness. The wickedness that’s going on is one of the main focuses of the chapter. His wife was apparently wicked because look what happened after they had children.
  • Tyler (Pt. 3 of 5)
    4. Noah’s family survived the flood as to where Cain’s didn’t so we’re descendants of Noah, not Cain.
    (So why is there wickedness in the world now? That’s due to the power of sin.)

    5. If GOD wanted us to know exactly who Cain’s wife was don’t you think he would’ve? GOD reveals things when he feels it’s right and we won’t know until we see him.
  • Tyler (Pt. 2 of 5)
    1. The Bible doesn’t say anywhere that Cain’s wife was his sister.

    2. Eve is the Mother of all living things, but the Bible doesn’t say that Eve gave birth to more than just Cain and Abel (like a sister).

    3. Seth came from Adam and Eve, not Cain, and Noah came from Seth.
  • Tyler (Pt. 1 of 5)
    Many people right now are insinuating that I'm trying to deceive them. I'm not. As a matter of fact it's the complete opposite. I fear and hate deception and the false teachers/prophets that preach falsely. I don’t want to be anything of the such.
