In Genesis 4:10 we read that the blood of Abel cried out to God from the ground. Have you ever wondered what it said? Well, the book of Hebrews gives us a hint, and we look at these questions in this podcast episode.
We will also be discussing how Cain implied that God was guilty for the death of Abel, and why God did not curse Cain for murdering his brother.
Learn how to deal with election fallout and difficult situations by seeing from Genesis 4:9-12 how God deals with Cain (and all of us).
The Text of Genesis 4:9-12
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?”
He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”
And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.”
In this discussion of Genesis 4:9-12 we look at:
- How Cain implies God is guilty for Abel’s death.
- Why the curse upon Cain is not a curse from God.
- Why it is not always true that the evil get punished and the good get blessed.
- What the blood of Abel cried out from the ground.
- The better word spoken by the blood of Jesus.
