Cain and Abel
John 8:33,37-49: “They answered him, we are of Abraham’s breed, nobody ever enslaved us yet. Yes, I know you are of Abraham’s breed; yet you design to kill me, because my word does not find any place in you. My words are what I have learnt in the house of my father, and your actions, it seems, are what you have learnt in the school of your father. Our father? They answered him; Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, if you are Abraham’s true children, it is for you to follow Abraham’s example; as it is, you are designing to kill me, who tell you the truth as I have heard it from god; this was not Abraham’s way. No, it is your father’s example you follow. And now they said to him, we are not bastard children; god, and he only, is the father we recognise. Jesus told them, if you were children of god, you would welcome me gladly; it was from god I took my origin, from him I have come. I did not come on my own errand, it was he who sent me. Why is it that you cannot understand the language I talk? It is because you have no ear for the message I bring. You belong to your father, that is, the devil, and are eager to gratify the appetites which are your father’s. He, from the first, was a murderer; and as for truth, he has never taken his stand upon that; there is no truth in him. When he utters falsehood, he is only uttering what is natural to him; he is all false, and it was he who gave falsehood its birth”.
Jesus admits to what they say that they are Abraham’s children. But in the next moment he blatantly denies that this is so. It is clear from this that when Jesus speaks falsehood, he speaks what comes naturally to him.
Jesus said, about the Devil, that ‘he, from the first, was a murderer’ (John 8:44).
The first murder in the bible is that of Adam’s son Abel. “When they were in the fields, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him” (Gen. 4:8).
The book of genesis manifestly says that Abel was killed by Cain. If so, Cain is the devil.
To see what caused Jesus to say, the first murderer––Cain, is the Devil, let us return to Genesis.
Having put Adam in induced coma, jehovah-Satan proceeds to make Eve professedly from one of his ribs. Gen. 2:22: “This rib, which he had taken out of Adam, the Lord God formed into a woman; and when he brought her to Adam, Adam said, Here, at last, is bone that comes from mine.”
The italicised word ‘brought’ manifest the occurrence of respite after Eve is professedly formed and the point when she is brought before Adam. The question is: What was jehovah-Satan doing to Eve during the respite? The answer is unambiguously provided by Eve.
Here see the testimony of Eve after she gave birth to Cain; “I have begotten a man-child by the lord.” (Gen. 4:1) The text varies from version to version and no two texts agree. But words reflecting the involvement of jehovah in the conception run uniformly through them all. Other texts of the same passage are as follows, with emphasis placed in each one of the link word/words:
“She called her child Cain, as if she would say Canithi, I have been enriched by the Lord with a man-child;” (Knox Version)
Eve said, “I ’ll name him Cain because I got him with the help of the Lord;”. (Contemporary English Version)
“I have produced a man with the aid of jehovah;” (New World Translation)
“By the lord’s help I have gotten a son;” (GNB– Today’s English Version)
“I have gotten a man through god;” (Dublin Bible)
“I have gotten a man from the lord;” (The Gideons International)
“With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man;” (New International Version)
Thus bible says through so many versions, that Cain is sired by jehovah.
Jesus emerges from Seth, the third son of Eve. (See the genealogy of Jesus at Matthew 1:1-16)
Again, the testimony of Eve after she gave birth to Seth: “God has given me a son to replace Abel, whom Cain killed.” Hence, Seth’s entry is only because Abel is removed from the scene by Cain. Cain’s purpose is thus to pave the path for Seth.
Similarly, Baptist John has the same function with regard to Jesus. He said about himself in John 1:23 “I am ‘the voice of someone shouting in the desert: Make a straight path for the lord to travel!’”
Let us see what transpired subsequently from the point of view of the curse that jehovah pronounces on the serpent.
Genesis 3:15: “I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head, and you bite her offspring’s heel.” This is the curse that jehovah pronounces. The enmity we see right after this curse is between Cain and Abel. And as it says in the curse––woman’s seed will bruise the head of his enemy––Cain bruised Abel’s head.
The hatred between the Serpent and the woman is clearly seen in Revelation 12:4.
“The dragon (Serpent) stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, ready to swallow up the child as soon as she bore it.”
The retaliation by the Serpent’s seed is at Rev. 12:3-4 “Then another sign appeared in heaven; an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.”
The Serpent’s seed is the beast mentioned in Revelation 13:1: “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise out of the sea.” This being rebelliously named as beast is the killer of Jesus, the so-called antichrist. (See Appendix)
