📖 Genesis 4
1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.
4 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:
5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
➦The offerings are there for a reason. What have you been offering to God? Have you been offering Him your best? God is within you now. He no longer rides on a physical Mercy Seat made of *Wood and *Gold but the “Gold” is in you. He ‘rides’ within you. What have you been giving to Him? How have you been treating Him? Now let’s reach down into the bottom of the “what-if” barrel. What if God really wants you to prosper? He wouldn’t have said it in the bible many times if He didn’t mean it. Beware of those who try to stop you from prospering. There is a reason. God want you to live abundantly. ✞ The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
Yes, God wants you to live abundantly, why is it so hard for some to have blessed finances? Answer: Because they are living off of Cain’s currency, a currency made from God’s resources but changed by man’s hands. Namely, man’s fiat, paper currency. An idea that satan gave man so that he could ‘steal’ the Gold and psyche you into thinking that you were rich. The Dollar used to be backed by Gold, now it’s just a ‘note’. Take a look at it. You will see the word, “note”. A note is a piece of paper that is not worth anything. Man (flesh) made it pretty so that you can accept it and think that you are something as long as you have a pocket full of it. Abel’s currency is made by God and cannot be changed by man’s hands. When you burn it, it just gets better. (It is of the Spirit which gives you Life because it lives and radiates.) Abel knew what to give God so that His household would be blessed. Do you? He gave God something that lives and radiates. Have you been giving the Lord a Basket of Fruit when it was supposed to be your Best Lamb? Fruit rots, Lambs live and radiate in the lives of those who come in contact with them/Him. Abel was blessed and wasn’t “marked” simply because he listened and obeyed. Obedience is greater than sacrifice.
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:
When people working together to ‘make money’ using scams, they work on what is called, the “mark”. Have you been marked (like Cain) or are you being blessed? Which currency are you offering to the God-in-you? In the very near future, how will you tithe a currency that no longer exists? Good question. Don’t wait until you cannot tithe. Cain doesn’t want you to be an Abel. He is trying everything that he can to stop you from gaining knowledge.
