    Why did God not respect the offering of Cain?
  • Mishael on Cains Curse Genesis 4 5 - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Cain was firstborn but God rejected Cains offering. Maybe it was substandard?

    Abel was 2nd born and God was pleased with his offering and blessed him.

    Cain was indignant and disputed the event. God didn't change His mind.

    Cain slew Abel. He was cursed and marked for death. Later he married and had children.

    Eventually Lamech was born. By accident He slew Cain and lived long enough to survive the 70 times 7 times curse for killing Cain. He survived and later Noah would be born. Genesis 4:23

    Then Eve's 3rd born son, Seth, lived 912 years.
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Hello Mishael, I'm not seeing where it says Lamech killed Cain. Genesis 4:23 says he killed a man, but it doesn't say who. It says it could be a young boy, if it was a young boy, then that eliminates Cain as a possibility, since Cain was older than Lamech. Otherwise, if it was a man and a boy- two people he killed- we still don't know who, unless it says somewhere else?
  • Mishael on Cains Death - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    I already posted the reply. Why else would what Lamech confessed to, be followed up with mention of Cains curse

    If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech, seventy and seven fold.

    Who knows IF Cain knew whoever killed him was going to suffer 70 times 7 years. That's hatred.

    Cains daughter gave birth to Lamech. Cain beat up his Grandson.

    Sounds like year 2020 huh?

    That question has been on that page a couple of days. I did my best.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Real sorry. My finger gets Fat at night.

    Verse 4:15-16 and 23-24
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Sorry, it's verse 15; 23-24. Center column says, for wounding and bruising me.

    There's a similar judgment in Ezekiel 9:4-6

    It's not described as a murder; it describes a fight.
  • Michael on Proverbs 1:1
    rebirth in bible is true or false
  • Mishael on a Happier Home - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Born again is as rebirth. It means both again. I prefer how Jesus explains it.

    In John 3, Jesus is telling Nicodemus how to be born again, spiritually. When he speaks about the wind, He is describing the Holy Spirit.

    We can pray for the Holy Spirit to visit our loved ones, convict them of sin and woo them to salvation. Pray and ask; then thank God for the answer. Having done all: to stand in FAITH.... not doubt. You gotta beat the devils off of family so they can respond to offered salvation.

    An angel tells Daniel, that Michael the Archangel had to fight against a demon prince to help this messenger get to Daniel.

    Daniel chapter 10:10-21.

    What you pray for, give thanks daily. Keep loved ones covered in prayers forbidding demonic influence.

    And nope, we don't get to order Michael around. We can ask God to give us angelic assistance. You already have a ministering angel.

    Here is a tip: when someone speaks forth the scriptures in the home; sings praises to God or talks what Jesus did today... angels hear it and record It in the Book of Remembrance . Malachi 3:16

    It's inspiring!

    "Then they that feared (respect & honor) the Lord spoke often one to another, and the Lord HEARKENED, and HEARD it, and a book of Remembrance was written BEFORE HIM, for them that feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name!

    So see, we can change the whole atmosphere in our homes! No swearing, no yelling insults and retorts; no gossip about others. Converse reverently about Jesus and you will have angels over at your place every day! How hard is that?

    If they hear you thanking the Lord for healing... the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness, salvation of loved ones etc...

    Your prayer and worship songs are being fast tracked right up front of Gods throne!!!

    Because Jesus sits at the right hand of God Almighty God of all there is! Jesus hears.

    Turn off Metallica and turn on Dion's Kingdom in the Streets cd. What's better than a happier home?
