10.10.4f “Why are you irate ? and what is your “look” of ‘contempt’ and resentment ?”

Besides, These words: 

 “ If you do well,

won’t you ( Cain )

be accepted ? “

— Genesis 4:7

 

regard “doing well”, not in a Spiritually Moral Sense,

 but in a Ceremonial Sense.

 

Cain and Abel were taught very early

 the Ceremonial necessity, manner

and use of sacrifices;

 

 to “Picture” Jesus’ BLOOD SACRIFICE

 

 and in process of time they brought

their offerings to the Lord;

each according to his different calling and employment;

 

the one son of Adam; Cain, 

brought of the fruit of the ground,

the other son of Adam; Abel, 

of the first-lings of his flock.

 

Now to Abel and his Ceremonial Offering

the Lord had respect,

that is, God accepted him, Abel and his Offering,

of the first-lings of his flock;

 

 but to Cain and  his Ceremonial Offering

God had not respect;

 

God Did NOT Accept Cain’s Offering

 brought of the fruit of the ground

 

which made Cain very wroth, and his countenance fell;

about which the Lord expostulates with him

 in this manner,

 

Why are you wroth ( or irate )?

and why is your countenance fallen ( in contempt 

 or why do you look so resentful? )

 

 If you do well,

 

Or, If you had offered rightly, 

 

( as the Septuagint renders the words which

though it is not a proper literal translation of them,

yet is agreeable enough to their sense,)

 

shouldn’t you be accepted ?

 

 Cain failed, Even Ceremonially,

either in the matter or manner of his sacrifice;

when he brought “a Sacrifice” of the fruit of the ground

probably in the latter; since the author of the

Epistle to the Hebrews observes, that

 

 by faith,

Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice

than Cain.

 ( Hebrews 11:4 )

 

by faith IN THE PROMISE of GOD

to PROVIDE HIM SALVATION,

 

Pictured by the Shedding of Blood by God of Animals

 to Cloth Able’s Parent’s, Adam and Eve,

after they had Fallen into a State of SIN,

 

 Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice

having been taught very early

 by his Parent’s, Adam and Eve,

the Ceremonial necessity, manner, and use of sacrifices

 

by Offering to God of the first-lings of his flock,

 and thereby: PICTURE The Sacrifice of JESUS,

 by The Shedding of Blood than Cain. (Hebrews 11:4)

 

Cain offered his sacrifice without faith

and without any view to the sacrifice of Christ:

 

Because he Did NOT have “FAITH” WITHIN him,

 CAIN Did Not Have Spiritual “FAITH

 in JESUS CHRIST’S SACRIFICIAL DEATH for his Sin”

 

 And Cain performed his sacrifice hypocritically,

in show and appearance only;

Not even Ceremonially “Correct”,

because he Did NOT SEE the Connection, Spiritually;

 

between his NEED for the BLOOD SACRIFICE of JESUS

and the “Picture” of this Sacrifice

 he was to “Offer”, Ceremonially  

 

because Cain Did NOT HAVE the Connection,

to SALVATION through the Blood of Jesus, Spiritually.

 

 Cain Did Not act from a right principle,

nor a right purpose;

because “The Right Principal” to ShowCeremonially  

 

 AND The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD

WAS NOT IN him, by Eternal Salvation

 

and therefore Cain’s “works”,

whatever kind of ‘show’ of “righteousness”

they might have been trying to be,

 

( by his “Sacrifice” of Offering

a portion of his labor from the fruit of the ground )

 

are, by the apostle John, (1 John 3:12) rightly

called “evil”;

 

and is Evidence of an Evil, wicked

and unregenerate man  

 

and of ALL OTHER INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE

who are ALL also Equally Evil toward God 

in ALL their “works” as wicked and unregenerate men,

in the Human Race,

APART from ETERNAL SALVATION.
