Life and Death – Cain and Able

Cain and Able

John 1:5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

We are seeing this more and more in these days that we live in. Let’s look a little deeper into this situation. It really started as soon as the original man and woman were cast out of that beautiful garden where everything had been given them without anything but obedience to the dictates of the garden. Since they had been formed out of the mind of the invisible Creator, and spent, perhaps billions of years, as we know years, tending after the needs of the trees and undergrowth, for their daily sustenance, they fell for the lies of the serpent. Not so unlike today with all the death and destruction we see around us with murder, rape and destruction of people and property. But then, in my mind, I look at all the religious beliefs around today that would disqualify the original Creator and thus believe the serpents lies yet again or still that philosophy or psychology has the upper hand over the Creator and kill our brothers over this belief.

I look at these two birds of a feather that have come against each other when the Creator has designed them to flock together. In fact, I look at all of creation, flowers, trees, animals, insects and birds that have been designed with certain attributes to sustain life. Yet here we are, back to Cain and Able, one whose offering is acceptable and the other whose offering is not acceptable. And as the Creator says, sin is crouching at your door. This verse of scripture has been running through my head, day and night for about three days now: John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  What this has been saying to me is that this Messiah, Yeshua is not only the son of God but He is God. He is the physical manifestation of the invisible God. He is the Light of the world and no matter how the serpent wants to destroy that reality with his darkness, he will fail in the end, just as the Creator has foretold and all his followers will end up in that lake of fire. This makes me very sad, I might pursue this further, not sure
