I recently saw and read something on FaceBook with the same vague reasons for Abel’s sacrifice being acceptable and Cain’s rejection by God. Also, no real reason why Cain becomes jealous and kills his brother. Finally no explanation as to who and where Cain gets a wife when he runs off and starts a tribe of his own. Since we have indeterminate, unclear, hazy reasons based on what the author of Genesis presents we need to examine the details more closely. 

Most theologians would present that Abel was a keeper of folk of sheep, while Cain was a farmer. They both sacrifice the first fruits of what they had. At this point, we have no information that Adam sacrificed anything we can suggest that Adam was also a farmer since God’s curse involved the land. “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil, you will eat food from it all the days of your life.” This brings us to the question of what made Abel a shepherd and why he choose to sacrifice the fat portion of his firstborn? Another question comes to mind how many sheep did Abel have. As you can see these are only a few questions that theologians seldom answer. 

Let’s examine Genesis 4: “In the course of time, Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor.” Notice the fat portion of some of the firstborn of the flock is what Abel sacrificed. In order to get the fat portion you first must kill the animal then separate the fat from the meat of the muscle. 

The question here is did Abel eat or cast away the fat. While Cain brought the fruits of the soil. Cain sacrifices that which was edible to God. Theologians often make their readers believe that Abel sacrificed a lamb to God, but here we read the fat portion. The suggestion here is that the meat was not sacrificed therefore the better portion was not sacrificed to God. Yet God accepts Abel’s offering. 

God provides a clue why it was not acceptable: Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” (Genesis 6-7 NIV) What sin is crouching at Cain’s door? God asks Cain why are you angry? God rejected Cain’s offering not because there were few fruits or bad fruits since Abel’s sacrifice was not the meat but the fat. It was rejected because he was angry. Why was Cain angry? This is the question that theologians fail to answer and is at the heart of why God warns Cain by first rejecting his offering. It isn’t the offering that is rejected, but Cain’s attitude while presenting the offering. In Matthew 5:24 Jesus provides the clue; “Leave your gift there in front of the altar. First, go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” There is a conflict between Cain and Abel but also possibly with his parents. 

What could be the possible reason why the firstborn son is angry? We have read that the fat portion was sacrificed. So what was done with the meat? Abel provided the meat of the lamb to be eaten, roasted over a fire as the fat was sacrificed. Like a shepherd he sat and watched his sheep graze, while Cain work hard to till the soil, watering the crops. Perhaps Adam and Eve praised Abel for the meat of the lamb, giving him more attention; as Jacob later does with Joseph. The climax of Cain’s jealousy comes with a decision of marriage for Abel, and himself. 

In a non-Canon document, both Cain and Abel had twin sisters. Cain’s twin was beautiful, and he was handsome and strong due to his hard work. Abel and his sister were more homely. Adam and Eve were inspirited to crossbreed the two couples Cain’s twin to Abel and Abel’s twin to Cain; this arrangement only increased Cain’s anger causing his sacrifice to be rejected. Having his brother praised for meat and now rewarded with his sister was the last straw. Cain’s sister also desired him over Abel. A meeting was agreed upon between brothers. Cain rejects the idea of marriage with Abel’s twin. The conflict increases and Cain is in anger as God had warned fails to rule over his anger. As the result, Cain kills Abel and runs off with his twin turning his back on God and his parents. 

Now you ask why isn’t a part of the Genesis story. The reason being was the notion of incest is present and therefore rejected, as Canon. However, Adam and Eve were in reality twins. Eve was created from a portion of Adam’s body, therefore sharing the same DNA. Since there were no other humans on the earth procreation would have been necessary with brothers and sisters breeding. God-given inspiration provided Adam and Eve to decide to crossbreed, a sign of moving away from inbreeding. When we add the rejected accounts to the history the reactions become more clear, that the death of Abel is over a woman. The desire and jealousy for knowledge of a woman brought sin into the world and the desire and jealousy over a woman brings about the first murder. The desire for a woman and murder occurs often in history. David takes a friend’s wife and later has him killed. The Bible has many reoccurring themes.

You put a live lobster in cold water and it thinks it is safe then you slowly turn the heat on and it never realizes that it is slowly being cooked until it is too late and dies. The same is true with freedom. You take a little bit at a time until you have none and then it is too late. America is becoming a one-party communistic nation and you don’t even see it. Propaganda media, fraud elections, forced separation by distancing, and vaccination to determine who can work and who cannot. Defunding police so that crimes increases and then the military well be moved in for order and control and slowing you are losing your freedom. Now the fact-checkers and some of you will say I am promoting the conspiracy theory. However, if you read the Book of Revelation and remember the comment by a former President Bush stating we were entering into a One World Order you would realize we are moving in that direction. Your cell phone can show your every movement. Social media monitors everything you say, what you buy etc. You are already being watched.

If you use Google maps to locate your home you can see a picture of your house. Now if the government wants to it can view who is coming and going. You cannot end up in FB jail if they are not monitoring what you are writing. They know who your family and friends are. Where you go and when. Someone can easily access your page and get information to use to scam you or to simply know your activity. This is true about all social media sites. Don’t be naive in thinking that they don’t sell your information.

Your smartphone and late model cars have a GPS system in them and you use it for directions. While you are driving and when you make the wrong turn the GPS instantly reroutes the program. To do that the system has to know where your car is at the moment. So the police for example don’t need to follow you. The GPS system can tell them where you stopped. They just need to have access. A time is coming when the military will enforce government laws. They will have access to all the means of tracking your location, and all of your activity. Covid has already begun to control the movement of the population.

The government has already started to control the movement, sitting, and rituals conducted in church. People have now become so indoctrinated that a germ is more powerful than God. The government has now crossed the line between Church and State. It leads to the issue that God does not keep you healthy but the government does, resulting in there being really no God. When Christians receive the Eucharist wearing a mask before and after taking the body of Christ. They have lost faith in the Eucharist. There are those that already disbelieve in the Eucharist therefore the government has succeeded in removing a belief in a God that protects and heals. You are then a slave to the government. WAKE UP!
