“Oh Adam, Where For Art Thou?” Part 8

It is a big task to take what we believed as tried and true and dig for ourselves to find what is and isn’t so. We must all use discernment, especially in Historic documentaries, which are heavily based on museum artifacts, archeology, and man’s interpretation of the collection of materials they have researched and their opinions of the findings based on their own understanding of how it interacts with Bible scripture. It does one well to look at the artifacts, side by side with the clues the Word of God gives us on what we are shown. If your eyes see something different…research it. Smile.

That being said, we continue with Part 8 of “Oh Adam, Where For Art Thou?”

Adam and Eve Book 2, CHAP. LXXVI.

Cain becomes jealous because of his sisters.

1 AND the children began to wax stronger, and to grow in stature; but Cain was hardhearted, and ruled over his younger brother.

2 And oftentimes when his father made an offering, he would remain behind and not go with them, to offer up. 3 But, as to Abel, he had a meek heart, and was obedient to his father and mother, whom he often moved to make an offering, because he loved it; and prayed and fasted much.

4 Then came this sign to Abel. As he was coming into the Cave of Treasures, and saw the golden rods, the incense and the myrrh, he inquired of his parents Adam and Eve concerning them, and said unto them, “How did you come by these?” 5 Then Adam told him all that had befallen them. And Abel felt deeply about what his father told him.

6 Furthermore his father Adam, told him of the works of God, and of the garden; and after that, he remained behind his father the whole of that night in the Cave of Treasures.

7 And that night, while he was praying, Satan appeared unto him under the figure of a man, who said to him, “Thou hast oftentimes moved thy father to make an offering, to fast and to pray, therefore I will kill thee, and make thee perish from this world.”

8 But as for Abel, he prayed to God, and drove away Satan from him; and believed not the words of the devil. Then when it was day, an angel of God appeared unto him, who said to him, “Shorten neither fasting, prayer, nor offering up an oblation unto thy God. For, lo, the Lord has accepted thy prayer. Be not afraid of the figure which appeared unto thee in the night, and who cursed thee unto death.” And the angel departed from him. (Satan is now attacking the children.

9 Then when it was day, Abel came to Adam and Eve, and told them of the vision he had seen. But when they heard it, they grieved much over it, yet said nothing to him about it; they only comforted him. (They know the demonic realm very well.)

10 But as to hard-hearted Cain, Satan came to him by night, showed himself and said unto him, “Since Adam and Eve love thy brother Abel much more than they love thee, and wish to join him in marriage to thy beautiful sister, because they love him; but wish to join thee in marriage to his ill-favoured sister, because they hate thee; 11 “Now, therefore, I counsel thee, when they do that, to kill thy brother; then thy sister will be left for thee; and his sister will be cast, away.”

12 And Satan departed from him. But the wicked One remained behind in the heart of Cain, who sought many a time, to kill his brother. (This is revealing of how the demonic spirits of Satan work, and he appeared directly to Cain and spoke and one of them (demonic spirits/fallen angels) remained behind in his heart. I wonder if Cain knew that it was not a vision? What would you say? There is a lot to ponder on here.)

Adam and Eve Book 2. CHAP. LXXVII.

Cain, 15 years old, and Abel 12 years old, grow apart.

1 BUT when Adam saw that the elder brother hated the younger, he endeavoured to soften their hearts, and said unto Cain, “Take, O my son, of the fruits of thy sowing, and make an offering unto God, that He may forgive thee thy wickedness and thy sin.”

2 He said also to Abel, “Take thou of thy sowing and make an offering and bring it to God, that He may forgive thy wickedness and thy sin.”

3 Then Abel hearkened unto his father’s voice, and took of his sowing, and made a good offering, and said to his father, Adam, “Come with me, to show me how to offer it up.” 4 And they went, Adam and Eve with him, and showed him how to offer up his gift upon the altar. Then after that, they stood up and prayed that God would accept Abel’s offering.

5 Then God looked upon Abel and accepted his offering. And God was more pleased with Abel than with his offering, because of his good heart and pure body. There was no trace of guile in him.

(Ponder on this. How many times in the scriptures do we hear the Lord loves a pure heart and cheerful giver?)

2 Corinthians 9:7

“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

(“The word translated “cheerful” is the Greek hilaros, and means pretty much the same—cheerful, joyous. But it also has a sense of readiness. It means to be ready to act at a moment’s notice, to be prepared”.)

6 Then they came down from the altar, and went to the cave in which they dwelt. But Abel, by reason of his joy at having made his offering, repeated it three times a week, after the example of his father Adam.

7 But as to Cain, he took no pleasure in offering; but after much anger on his father’s part, he offered up his gift once; and when he did offer up, his eye was on the offering he made, and he took the smallest of his sheep for an offering, and his eye was again on it.  (Ponder the words “after much anger on his father’s part”… what type of arguments or things did they have? What is the importance of the words “he offered up his gift once”? And when he did his eye was on the offering? Taking the smallest sheep? Does that mean he didn’t want to give it up or something else? Was it on purpose? How do you interpret that one? )

8 Therefore God did not accept his offering, because his heart was full of murderous thoughts. (What do you interpret this as meaning? Have you ever been given something from someone you know had ill thoughts toward you? How did it feel to receive their gift?)

9 And they all thus lived together in the cave in which Eve had brought forth, until Cain was fifteen years old, and Abel twelve years old.

Adam and Eve Book 2, CHAP. LXXVIII.

Jealousy overcomes Cain. He makes trouble in the family. How the first murder was planned.

1 THEN Adam said to Eve, “Behold the children are grown up; we must think of finding wives for them.” 2 Then Eve answered, “How can we do it?” 3 Then Adam said to her, “We will join Abel’s sister in marriage to Cain, and Cain’s sister to Abel.” 4 Then said Eve to Adam, “I do not like Cain because he is hard-hearted; but let them bide until we offer up unto the Lord in their behalf.” 5 And Adam said no more.

6 Meanwhile Satan came to Cain in the figure of a man of the field, and said to him, “Behold Adam and Eve have taken counsel together about the marriage of you two; and they have agreed to marry Abel’s sister to thee, and thy sister to him.

(If there is only Adam and Eve upon the earth… why isn’t Cain questioning the man who comes to him as being a fake? Wouldn’t he know there is no other people? Which raises the question, when God made Satan ruler on earth, who was he ruler of? He was not ruler in His garden… not at all… so when Satan entered in to destroy Adam… why? Because God sought to make children for himself? Did Satan already have his own children in the form of his fallen hosts? This is just thinking out loud and not meant for anything but to stir up questions that can answer this as it has been a long arduous debate that does have an answer. But the way it is worded in Genesis raises questions? Just seeking what that answer is for there are several interpretations on that and all proclaim to be the truth?)

7 “But if it was not that I love thee, I would not have told thee this thing. Yet if thou wilt take my advice, and hearken to me, I will bring: thee on thy wedding day beautiful robes, gold and silver in plenty, and my relations will attend thee.” 8 Then Cain said with joy, “Where are thy relations?

9 And Satan answered, “My relations are in a garden in the north, whither I once meant to bring thy father Adam; but he would not accept my offer. (Was this deception, or were there others on the earth in other areas? Just asking. As so much deception about this subject has been written and debated. What are your thoughts? Is Satan just gaslighting Cain and filling his head with lies? Are his relations the third of the angels that were cast down with him? Those who can shapeshift and look like Adam? Or were the angels cursed to look like flesh and they shapeshift into other forms? Maybe we will soon find out? Or is Satan just having his fallen angels appear as people? Is this how they mated with earthly women? Shapeshifting to be as them? This opens up a possibility I had not considered? Just thinking out loud here, nothing more. Satan is the great deceiver and author of lies.)

10 “But thou, if thou wilt receive my words and if thou wilt come unto me after thy wedding, thou shalt rest from the misery in which thou art; and thou shalt rest and be better off than thy father Adam.” (Now these are definitely lies, but what does he really desire to use Cain for in the future?)

image 37

11 At these words of Satan, Cain opened his ears, and leant towards his speech.

12 And he did not remain in the field, but he went to Eve, his mother, and beat her, and cursed her, and said to her, “Why are ye about taking my sister to wed her to my brother? Am I dead?” (Now I know why earlier Eve was said not to like Cain because of his hard heartedness. Cain was wicked for sure. His beating and cursing Eve got me angry. Did it you?)

13 His mother, however, quieted him, and sent him to the field where be had been. 14 Then when Adam came, she told him of what Cain had done. 15 But Adam grieved and held his peace, and said not a word. (What are your thoughts on this?)

16 Then on the morrow Adam said unto Cain his son, “Take of thy sheep, young and good, and offer them up unto thy God; and I will speak to thy brother, to make unto his God an offering of corn.” (So we see some of the back story here that Genesis refers to but doesn’t detail Any thoughts on this? Genesis gives us a brief outlay of what took place here . As we will find in Adam’s testimony, there were times when both brought grain offerings. Did both also take care of sheep and til the ground as Adam did both? Genesis says Abel brought the sheep offering and Cain brought fruit of the ground? )

Genesis 4:2-4,And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. 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:

It also said above in CHAP. LXXVII.:

“1 BUT when Adam saw that the elder brother hated the younger, he endeavoured to soften their hearts, and said unto Cain, “Take, O my son, of the fruits of thy sowing, and make an offering unto God, that He may forgive thee thy wickedness and thy sin.” 2 He said also to Abel, “Take thou of thy sowing and make an offering and bring it to God, that He may forgive thy wickedness and thy sin.”

(Adam did both til the ground and kept the sheep. He offered both offerings prior in previous chapters. The Lord told them the first breads they made would represent His flesh. And the blood and water spilled by Satan’s sharp flat stone in the side that killed Adam, would be spilled by Him also. We find pieces here a little, there a little. Let’s keep finding the pieces. And understand much is lost in all translations by the translater and their choice of what word to use in the interpretation. Sometimes things contradict due to the translation. For example the Greek word “hautou” pronounced (how-too) is used for “her own, his own, their own, themselves, they.” You can totally change the meaning if you use His own instead of Her own or say Their own. See how this works? So we leave the jury open on these for now.)

hautou: her own, his own, their own, themselves, they.Original Word: αὑτοῦ
Transliteration: hautou
Phonetic Spelling: (how-too’)
Definition: her own, his own, their own, themselves, they Read: Strong’s Greek: 848. αὑτοῦ (hautou) — her own, his own, their own, themselves, they. (biblehub.com)

(This will take some deeper research based on differing translators translations. Remember also Jesus accused the Sanhedrin of making their own laws and changing things to suit their own dogma. Matthew Chapter 23 is filled with his condemnation, and holds them responsible for all in verse 35: “That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.” There have been many rewrites past down and false interpretations.)

John 8:44, 44Ye 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.” 

(Remember…we are sifting through many rewritings tampered by Rabbi’s and their interpretations along with modern day scholars, theologians, PhD’s, and Lizard Oligarchs…. the truth is out there, but the real message is what Jesus taught and the Words of Moses and Enoch. For Satan is still the author of confusion and lies. Herein is a video that shows why there is yet so much confusion…. The greatest takeaway from all of this is the mind control weapons Satan uses to deceive and how God sees all things and knows and judges your heart. Most of all, revenge belongs to Him and He does avenge His children!

17 They both hearkened to their father Adam, and they took their offerings, and offered them up on the mountain by the altar. 18 But Cain behaved haughtily towards his brother, and thrust him from the altar, and would not let him offer up his gift upon the altar; but he offered his own upon it, with a proud heart, full of guile, and fraud.

19 But as for Abel, he set up stones that were near at hand, and upon that, he offered up his gift with a heart humble and free from guile.

20 Cain was then standing by the altar on which he had offered up his gift; and he cried unto God to accept his offering; but God did not accept it from him; neither did a divine fire come down to consume his offering. 21 But he remained standing over against the altar, out of humour and wroth, looking towards his brother Abel, to see if God would accept his offering or not.

22 And Abel prayed unto God to accept his offering. Then a divine fire came down and consumed his offering. And God smelled the sweet savour of his offering; because Abel loved Him and rejoiced in Him.

23 And because God was well pleased with him He sent him an angel of light in the figure of man who had partaken of his offering, because He had smelled the sweet savour of his offering, and they comforted Abel and strengthened his heart.(The scripture on entertaining angels unaware comes to mind. Hebrews 13:2, “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Just saying that reminded me of that scripture. Smile.)

24 But Cain was looking on all that took place at his brother’s offering, and was wroth on account of it.

25 Then he opened his mouth and blasphemed God, because He had not accepted his offering. (Well those details are very visual. What are your thoughts on the actions and hatefulness of Cain?)

26 But God said unto Cain, “Wherefore is thy countenance sad? Be righteous, that I may accept thy offering. Not against Me hast thou murmured, but against thyself.” 27 And God said this to Cain in rebuke, and because He abhorred him and his offering. (Ponder what God said. I take it that he was putting the responsibility back on Cain where it belonged and letting him know every thing he says against God is coming back on him. You can have the finest of offering and in the manner most acceptable… but if your heart is not right, it is as nothing. How do you see it?)

28 And Cain came down from the altar, his colour changed and of a woeful countenance, and came to his father and mother and told them all that had befallen him. And Adam grieved much because God had not accepted Cain’s offering.

29 But Abel came down rejoicing, and with a gladsome heart, and told his father and mother how God had accepted his offering. And they rejoiced at it and kissed his face. 30 And Abel said to his father, “Because Cain thrust me from the altar, and would not allow me to offer my gift upon it, I made an altar for myself and offered my gift upon it.”

31 But when Adam heard this he was very sorry, because it was the altar he had built at first, and upon which he had offered his own gifts.

32 As to Cain, he was so sullen and so angry that he went into the field, where Satan came to him and said to him, “Since thy brother Abel has taken refuge with thy father Adam, because thou didst thrust him from the altar, they have kissed his face, and they rejoice over him, far more than over thee.” (Cain had no repentence at all in his heart, nor mind and was instead filled with anger and hate and that is the prime condition for Satan to enter in and do his best deceiving. It’s when Satan brings gasoline to the fire and pours it out and fans the flames.)

33 When Cain heard these words of Satan, he was filled with rage; and he let no one know. But he was laying wait to kill his brother, until he brought him into the cave, and then said to him: 34 “O brother, the country is so beautiful, and there are such beautiful and pleasurable trees in it, and charming to look at! But brother, thou hast never been one day in the field to take thy pleasure therein.

35 “To-day, O, my brother, I very much wish thou wouldest come with me into the field, to enjoy thyself and to bless our fields and our flocks, for thou art righteous, and I love thee much, O my brother! but thou hast estranged thyself from me.” (I just want to shout, “Don’t go Able!” Do you? Did you also catch that Cain said…OUR FIELDS AND OUR FLOCKS? So they both had possession and skills of taking care of both. Which makes more reason, especially Adam would want to teach both sons how to do all things. So they could have brought either offering and not just one type assigned to the other.)

36 Then Abel consented to go with his brother Cain into the field. 37 But before going out, Cain said to Abel, “Wait for me, until I fetch a staff, because of wild beasts.” 38 Then Abel stood waiting in his innocence. But Cain, the forward, fetched a staff and went out. 39 And they began, Cain and his brother Abel, to walk in the way; Cain talking to him, and comforting him, to make him forget everything. (Does this trigger any memories for any of you? Do you recall ever being in Able’s position? Believing and getting led into a trap? How about being like Cain and carrying out a preplanned bad thing? Bet we all know of someone who has.)

(What we are learning from this is that God does see all things and revenge does belong to Him. And He does avenge His children. Amen.)

Adam and Eve Book 2, CHAP. LXXIX.

A wicked plan is carried to a tragic conclusion. Cain is frightened. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The seven punishments. Peace is shattered.

1 AND so they went on, until they came to a lonely place, where there were no sheep; then Abel said to Cain, “Behold, my brother, we are weary of walking; for we see none of the trees, nor of the fruits, nor of the verdure, nor of the sheep, nor any one of the things of which thou didst tell me. Where are those sheep of thine thou didst tell me to bless?”

2 Then Cain said to him, “Come on, and presently thou shalt see many beautiful things. but go before me, until I come up to thee.”

image 40

3 Then went Abel forward, but Cain remained behind him. 4 And Abel was walking in his innocence, without guile; not believing his brother would kill him. 5 Then Cain, when he came up to him, comforted him with his talk, walking a little behind him; then he hastened, and smote him with the staff, blow upon blow, until he was stunned,

6 But when Abel fell down upon the ground, seeing that his brother meant to kill him, he said to Cain, “O, my brother, have pity on me. By the breasts we have sucked, smite me not! By the womb that bare us and that brought us into the world, smite me not unto death with that staff! If thou wilt kill me, take one of these large stones, and kill me outright.”

image 39

7 Then Cain, the hard-hearted, and cruel murderer, took a large stone, and smote his brother with it upon the head, until his brains oozed out, and he weltered in his blood, before him.

8 And Cain repented not of what he had done.

9 But the earth, when the blood of righteous Abel fell upon it, trembled, as it drank his blood, and would have brought Cain to naught for it. 10 And the blood of Abel cried mysteriously to God, to avenge him of his murderer.

11 Then Cain began at once to dig the earth wherein to lay his brother; for he was trembling from the fear that came upon him, when he saw the earth tremble on his account. 12 He then cast his brother into the pit he made, and covered him with dust. But the earth would not receive him; but it threw him up at once.

13 Again did Cain dig the earth and hid his brother in it; but again did the earth throw him up on itself; until three times did the earth thus throw up on itself the body of Abel.

14 The muddy earth threw him up the first time, because he was not the first creation; and it threw him up the second time and would not receive him, because he was righteous and good, and was killed without a cause; and the earth threw him up the third time and would not receive him, that there might remain before his brother a witness against him.

image 41

15 And so did the earth mock Cain, until the Word of God, came to him concerning his brother.

16 Then was God angry, and much displeased at Abel’s death; and He thundered from heaven, and lightnings went before Him, and the Word of the Lord God came from heaven to Cain, and said unto him, “Where is Abel thy brother?”

(God was ANGRY and thundered from heaven with lightnings! BOOM!)

17 Then Cain answered with a proud heart and a gruff voice, “How, O God? am I my brother’s keeper?”

18 Then God said unto Cain, “Cursed be the earth that has drunk the blood of Abel thy brother; and thou, be thou trembling and shaking; and this will be a sign unto thee, that whosoever finds thee, shall kill thee.”

19 But Cain wept because God had said those words to him; and Cain said unto Him “O God, whosoever finds me shall kill me, and I shall be blotted out from the face of the earth.” (So that’s why Cain said what he said? Now it makes sense. Not that the earth was filled with people, he feared that when his mom or dad or sisters found him they would kill him. Or maybe even Satan for he got caught and God is angry.)

20 Then God said unto Cain, “Whosoever shall find thee shall not kill thee;” because before this, God had been saying to Cain, “I shall forego seven punishments on him who kills Cain.” For as to the word of God to Cain, “Where is thy brother?” God said it in mercy for him, to try and make him repent. 21 For if Cain had repented at that time, and had said, “O God, forgive me my sin, and the murder of my brother,” God would then have forgiven him his sin.

image 44

(So God in His mercy said to him, as he had said to Adam the true things he said to both him and Eve, to see their hearts and they repented… for without God there is nothing but death. Cain did not repent, but showed in his heart a fear that he had not shown before when he wept and in sorrow spoke his words to God.)

22 And as to God saying to Cain, “Cursed be the ground that has drunk the blood of thy brother” that also, was God’s mercy on Cain. For God did not curse him, but He cursed the ground; although it was not the ground that had killed Abel, and had committed iniquity.

23 For it was meet that the curse should fall upon the murderer; yet in mercy did God so manage His thoughts as that no one should know it, and turn away from Cain. (This may need to be pondered and see if there was a better way to translate this for what it really means??)

24 And He said to him, “Where is thy brother?” To which he answered and said, “I know not.” Then the Creator said to him, “Be (thou) trembling and quaking.” 25 Then Cain trembled and became terrified; and through this sign did God make him an example before all the creation, as the murderer of his brother. Also did God bring trembling and terror upon him, that he might see the peace in which he was at first, and see also the trembling and terror he endured at the last; so that he might humble himself before God, and repent of his sin, and seek the peace he enjoyed at first.

26 And in the word of God that said, “I will forego seven punishments on whomsoever kills Cain,” God was not seeking to kill Cain with the sword, but He sought to make him die of fasting, and praying and weeping by hard rule, until the time that he was delivered from his sin.

27 And the seven punishments are the seven generations during which God awaited Cain for the murder of his brother. (The seven generations … here we go a clue. Now who knows what is meant by the seven generations? Does it have to do with the sons of Adam… or time periods up to the flood? What do you discern?)

28 But as to Cain, ever since he had killed his brother, he could find no rest in any place; but went back to Adam and Eve, trembling, terrified, and defiled with blood.

1 John 3:11-22

11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 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.

13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

image 42

That being said… We pause here and take all of this in and consider the many pieces of what we have knowledge of.

By now, we truly see that Genesis is a summary of the history of the creation up to the time of Israel’s bondage in Egypt. A summary that briefly tells the stories of so many things starting when God created the heavens and the earth.

We hear of the days of Adam, Eve, Enoch, Methuselah, the Giants on the earth, the wickedness, Noah, the Ark, the Flood (and the covenant he made with Noah and the Rainbow as a sign of that covenant), Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham (and the covenant God made with him and his seed that all nations shall be blessed because he obeyed God’s voice; and his tithing to Melchizedek) Lot, Nimrod, The Tower of Babel, Isaac, Jacob, (his wives, getting the birthright and wrestling with the angel and given the name Israel), stories of Esau, Joseph, Jacob’s deathbed, blessing his sons, and the inheritance of Israel going to Ephraim and Manasseh, the pharaoh who knew not Joseph and the enslavement of Israel/the Hebrews.

We know the details of these events are found in other books that those at the time all knew of and read. Many of these books were quoted and others people knew to go to for they had them as Noah brought the books with him on the Ark…the same as he brought with him the animal skins of Adam.

The Bible contains everything we need to know so forget the other books, or so said the devil… as he continues to take books out here a little there a lot and hide them. But, God shows the books to those who seek them. Ask and you shall receive. Smile. That in itself is a lot to ponder. We now have the task of seeking what is true and what is hidden, and what is false among that which is hidden? The Holy Spirit loves to help those on such a quest. Smile.

That being said…. to be continued…. “Oh Adam Where For Art Thou?” Part 9, this will be the grand finale of the series. Maybe?
