Genesis Chapter Four Verses 7-10

We studied last time how Cain just "threw together" an offering and went and "dropped if off" for God.

This was the reason God was not pleased with the offering.

In verse 7, God looks with favor on the offering of Abel but not on that of Cain. In this first mention of anger in the Bible, God warns Cain not to give into despair, but to master his resentment and work for a better result in the future. “If you do well, will you not be accepted?” the Lord asks him.

Some render the word a sin offering, as it sometimes signifies; and then the sense is, that though he had sinned, and had done wrong in the offering he had offered, nevertheless there was a sacrifice for sin provided. His offering was at hand, and would soon be offered! Therefore, he had no need to be dejected, or his countenance to fall; for if he looked to that sacrifice by faith, he would find pardon and acceptance from God.

But he didn't do that.

Instead, he allows his anger to fester and ends up killing his brother!

God then asks him, "Where is your brother?"

Cain arrogantly replies, "Am I my brothers keeper?" In other words, he was basically telling God, "If you're God, you should know where he is."

So God lets him know - He Knows!

"Listen; your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground!"

About the Podcast

My Bible Study
Verse by Verse Through The Bible
This has been a project I have been contemplating for a long time.

Join me in walking through the Bible on our personal Bible study - one verse at at time. There is no "preaching" here. Just simple scripture reading with brief explanations and examples of what the scripture mean.

I was inspired to do this project based upon the program "Through The Bible" with Dr. Jay Veron McGee (who is passed on to be with the Lord for several years now). When I first started to study the Bible, his radio program helped me immensely. It took Dr. McGee 5 years to do a complete Bible Study.

I do not know how long it will take us. But you can start listening at anytime. As I continue to add more episodes, you can join us at the most recent program or start at the beginning. Each episode is labeled as to the scriptures we are going to discuss.

I am so blessed you are here and I pray you will get a huge blessing as we join together in "MY BIBLE STUDY!"

You can also watch the corresponding YouTube videos that go with this Bible Study. I record them on FaceBook Live and load them to YouTube and the audio versions go here.
