Cain And Abel

Cain And Abel

 God is cruel and indifferent to some while He is non-existent to others. Today I share the story of two brothers, Cain and Abel. Who are they and why we need to see God in a different light?

When Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they disobeyed God. After the serpent tricked them somehow,  God chased them out of the Garden of Eden as a result of it. God punished all including the serpent. Yet, He made coverings for both Adam and Eve out of skins because they were both naked. Did God care for Adam and Eve despite their disobedience? I believe so! They stayed at the east outside the Garden. The story did not end here. As you can see..

 The Story of Cain And Abel


 The story continued with Eve first gave birth to Cain and later Abel. The pair of brothers were first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 4. So did God stop caring after knowing that Adam and Eve disobeyed Him and chased them out of the Garden of Eden? Apparently not!

 Why Do We Need To See God In A Different Light?

 One day, Cain offered God a bowl of his fruit of labor from the ground while Abel offered his best fat cattle (lamb) to Him. Now, whose offering do you think please God? Without a doubt, God was happy with Abel’s offering. Cain became angry and God warned him not to let sin enter his heart. Despite God’s warning, out of anger, he killed his brother, Abel. God punished him.  As a result, Cain and his family became nomads.

The story went on to show that Cain complained to God that somehow, God was too harsh in His punishment toward him. Cain got afraid that people wanted to kill him. God did not ignore his plead. Instead He put a sign on him so no one dare take his life. Was God more than fair to him despite what he did?

Was God’s heart broken by all that happened?
The man and woman God created and considered good, disobeyed Him. God’s beloved Abel died. Was He left with a broken heart? Did mankind He created leave Him with a broken heart? Yet, in all His wisdom, He took good care of Adam and Eve and even Cain.
Were the statements that God was cruel and indifferent, fair to Him? How could any one not see the pain He felt through it all? If you’ve been betrayed before,  and someone you’ve loved, taken from you, would you not know what that feels like? Whatever any one says about God, one truth remains, He is never indifferent.
 In Conclusion

In the coming ‘Resurrection Day’, I hope your perception of who God is, changes. What you failed to see before hopefully shed a new light to your understanding of who God truly is.

Would you let God become your Heavenly Father you need today?

Bleeding Heart Of The Great I AM

Bleeding Heart Of the Great I Am

Bleeding heart, what does that mean? It’s speaks of love, dismay, pain, all kind of emotions you can think of. When a heart is bleeding, it cares. Today our focus is on the broken heart of God. Why He cares? Let’s read more to find out..

Its been 3 days since God convinced me to read the Bible one chapter a day to my 3-year-old son, David from the beginning (Book of Genesis). The first 2 days went absolutely well. David enjoyed learning about God and his creations. You see, right up to this point, everything was perfect, absolutely beautiful. But, I also noticed the first command that God spoke to Adam was: ‘Do not eat the fruit, from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.’ ‘If you do, you shall surely die.’ Was God right?

Personal Story Continues

This morning, I read Genesis chapter 3 to David. David clearly did not like what he heard, after Adam and Eve were not allowed to stay in the Garden of Eden because they disobeyed God.

First the serpent changed what God commanded to Adam,then it lied to Eve and Eve ate what God told Adam not to eat. Later, she gave the fruit to Adam and he ate it. Immediately,  their eyes opened and filled with fear. They decided to hide from God. Next thing you knew, God came looking for Adam and Eve; ‘Where are you?’ He called out to them.

Then God gave each a judgement which included the serpent. Meanwhile, God made coverings for both Adam and Eve, out of skins and then instructed them to leave the garden. Finally, He placed the angels to guard the tree of life.

Was God mean to chase Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden? It seemed so to David.  Was God right to punish all parties involved? Was He too harsh?

As a parent to David, God showed me His broken heart today. When David misbehaved, I had to punish and correct his behavior. But, he knew I loved him. Every morning, he would wake up, look for me and give me his biggest smile. Each time he got punished, he might not like it but he knew very well that I loved him.

As a parent, I do not like to punish David. But as a good parent, I have to. Correction is necessary to teach David to become a well-balanced adult. Even though my heart aches more than he ever knows. Was God right to say: ‘You shall surely die?’ Yes, He was.

Did good exceed evil after Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? The truth is evil intensified as time goes on. The first recorded hideous act came shortly after Adam and Eve disobeyed God. Meanwhile, evil continued to snowball over time. Is there any hope left?

Everything God created, He called them good. A perfect place for dwelling just like Heaven. Everything fall apart because of SIN. Can SIN co-exists in wholeness? Will SIN corrupt? Look at Adam and Eve..

Does God Care?

Is it possible for God to undo the wrong? Would the undoing make any difference? The broken heart of God has to solve a dilemma. On one hand, watching His precious creations literally falling apart before His eyes and on the other, how to save it? Could sacrificing His only Begotten Son Jesus, do the job? Jesus is the only one qualified.

Is it fair to God to sacrifice His Son to save all even the ungrateful? It’s already been done. The question is: ‘What do you do about what you now know?’
