The First Murder

 Scripture:  Genesis 4 v 8 - 12:  "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."

There is always a first for everything but not only was the killing of Abel the first murder but also the first human death recorded in the Bible.  When God created man He gave him eternal life, not expecting Adam to submit to Satan the serpent, which would lead to severing himself and his family from life to death.

The wages of sin is death, and the murder of Abel started a chain reaction causing Almighty God to record the lifespan of those who were the ancestors of Jesus Christ.  

Under the law of Moses those who killed others on purpose received "an eye for an eye, a life for a life" and this applied to any who were witches, idolators, or any who practiced abominations.  Their influence was deemed by the Lord to be unstoppable, like a pandemic, there would be variants and mutations that were not permitted to live.  

It led to the wipe out of Sodom and Gomorrah, and eventually the Flood, as humans became worse and worse.  God was sorry He had made man and found only eight people worthy to restart His plan of salvation, Noah and his family.

1 John 3 v 12 - 15:  " 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.
13  Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him."

In this reference to Cain, John notes that no murderer has eternal life within himself.  If they repent and are forgiven under the New Testament covenant, they will be saved from death and eternal life will be given them as long as they do not re-offend.  

Satan had to find other ways of killing people.  War amongst the tribes was a handy mass murder machine, suicide another, diseases that could spread rapidly and kill swiftly were good too.  
John 10 v 10: "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."

These are the words of Jesus to His disciples.  The thief is Satan whose only objective is to hurt, kill, destroy the creation of God.  We are the people whom God made in His image and likeness, we are His offspring, His children, and He loves us like He loves His Son.  Satan can never be forgiven for the murder of so many, including Jesus. 

The only way Satan can hurt our Father is by tormenting, hurting, killing us.  He is responsible for brainwashing us when we were hostages in his evil kingdom to be sinners against God before we were ever born as humans.  That's why we are spiritually dead and born in sin with no memory of this past existence.  
Ecclesiastes 1 v 9 - 11: "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10  Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11  There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after."

There is no remembrance of former things, the things which were of old time, which was before us.  I sympathize with Solomon, The Preacher, who wrote Ecclesiastes, trying to explain what the former things were.  However the verses above helped me find some answers and I did pray for my memory to be restored so I could speak truth not conjecture.

God made this Earth and Eden for the first humans to enable Him to restore the souls of people who had been spiritually destroyed by brainwashing.  His enemy, the father of lies, had done every evil thing to the broken spirits to twist them into beings God would reject.  We are Satan's leverage to take over running the universe and being higher than Almighty God.

A topical example is happening in Afghanistan right now.  The American army has fled leaving the Afghans to the mercy of the Taliban terrorist group.  The Taliban have in a matter of days taken control of the whole country.  They have declared it to be an Islamic State and will apply Sharia Law.

Their first action, already happening, is to rid the country of the underground Christian church which was the second fastest growing church on Earth.  Right now Christians are being killed to purify Islam.  The leader of Taliban has said that women will still have their rights to education and to wear  head covering, but that is already being seen as lies.

Satan has taken control of this nation of Afghanistan and twenty years of American influence has been wiped out.  The president has fled the country, the citizens are desperately trying to leave , the American weapons have been left behind and will be used against any help coming for them. 

This swift destruction is a warning of what is heading our way in the Tribulation.  It is a slow motion action replay of what happened to us in the former things we have no memory of.  Jesus knew that what happened back in the days before Earth would be played out including His own life, death and resurrection.   He said it at the last supper before His arrest.  Take eat, this is My Body, broken for you.  

He was referring to the death mentioned in Revelation 13 v 8 - 9: " And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9  If any man have an ear, let him hear."

He is referring to The Beast, part of the Antichrist, who will be worshipped by the unsaved people, whose names are not written in the Lambs Book of Life, who was slain at the time the world, Satan's system of control, was set in motion, i.e. before we were ever on Earth.  Jesus was slain and broken before we were humans.  His Body was not broken on the Cross, it was broken during the former things we cannot remember.

I hope with all my heart that you are beginning to grasp and understand the enormity of what happened to bring us to this planet and why it is not our true home.  Why we long for this life to be over so we can be back where we truly belong.  

Jesus put all the events in perspective for us, the things that would happen after He left Earth.  The Temple and all Jerusalem would be destroyed.  There would be much deception, then earthquakes, plagues, weather out of control, heart failure, the Tribulation, the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the thousand years of peace.  The Great White Throne judgment, then the Bride saying Come Lord Jesus right at the end of it all.  She cannot be the Church.  She is Israel.

He also said that the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father would come to guide us into all truth.  Without the Holy Spirit, I could not have received this and even as I write these words I can smell the Rose of Sharon, to know that Jesus is with me directing this scribe in what is being written in this blog.

The Church is His broken body of which He is the Head.  Together when the church is Raptured, the Bridegroom will be completed, whole again, ready to rescue His Bride, Israel, from the destruction of Armageddon.  I have to speak the truth as the Lord revealed to me as so many Christians believe they are the Bride of Christ.  He wants us to know who we really are.  

I do not know who started the story that the Church is the Bride of Christ, but the New Jerusalem coming out of Heaven consists of the twelve tribes of Israel and is referred to as the Lamb's Wife.  Rev 21 v 9 - 12. It is causing many Christians, who have been taught that they are the Bride, to go back under the Jewish Law, which Paul asks, Who has bewitched you to abandon your faith and return under the bondage of the law?  

The first murder would have started in the forgotten former times, followed by many more and all the other dastardly deeds that puts people into life terms in prison or insane asylums today.  If you understand what Jesus revealed to me then you will not be bewildered when the Rapture occurs and you find yourself part of the Groom!  It took me five long years to get my head around it but since then everything fell neatly into place. 

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, how we love and adore You!  Thanks for showing us truth over error.  You do not want anyone to be deceived by a false belief.  Help us to keep on renewing our minds according to Your Word.  When we take Communion we will do it in remembrance of the Lamb who was slain and broken from the foundation of the world. In Jesus' mighty name.  Amen.
