Title: The Blood of Abel Speaks

The Blood of Abel Speaks
Cain and Abel Genesis 4
  • Both offered Sacrifice
  • Abels accepted
  • Cains rejected
  • Cain killed Abel

Interesting side-lights
What was the mark on Cain ? Where did Cain get
his wife ?
Heb. 114
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent
sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness
that he was righteous, God testifying of his
gifts and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
Though dead Abel still speaks to us today by
lessons we learn...
God will Avenge
God will avenge injustices And he said, What
hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood
crieth unto me from the ground. Gen. 410
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but
rather give place unto wrath for it is written,
Vengeance is mine I will repay, saith the Lord.
Punishment Retribution
Rom. 1219
From the blood of Abel unto the blood of
Zacharias, which perished between the altar and
the temple verily I say unto you, It shall be
required of this generation.
The Creator will someday settle all accounts !
Luke 1151
Righteous hated Without cause
Abel was hated by Cain Why ??? Darkness hates
light Filled with envy and hatred
The Devils children hate Gods children !
11 For this is the message that you heard from
the beginning, that we should love one another,
12 not as Cain who was of the wicked one and
murdered his brother. And why did he murder him?
Because his works were evil and his brother's
righteous. 13 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the
world hates you.
10. Blessed are those who are persecuted for
righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of
heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when they revile and
persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against
you falsely for My sake.
Matt. 510-12
12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is
your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the
prophets who were before you.
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ
Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Tim. 312
"If the world hates you, you know that it hated
Me before it hated you. John 1518
All who walk with God must realize that the world
which knows not God will hate them !
It matters how we Worship God
Worship of God is a restricted affair. Most today
feel any kind or way of worship to God will be
God is a Spirit and they that worship him must
worship him in spirit and in truth. Jn.
424 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as
doctrines the commandments of men. Mk. 77
24. God that made the world and all things
therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and
earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands
25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as
though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to
all life, and breath, and all things Acts
Now these things, brethren, I have in a figure
transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes
that in us ye might learn not to go beyond the
things which are written that no one of you be
puffed up for the one against the other. 1
Cor. 46 ASV
Why was God pleased with Abel and not Cain ??
Abel did what God commanded Cain did what he
wanted to do
Heb. 114
Rom. 1017
Cain was the first false worshiper
…if God wants smoke …if God wants value …who
likes all that messy blood? …its the spirit of
the thing
The blood of Abel cries out that It does make a
difference !!!
Faith is Key to Acceptable Worship
  • By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent
    sacrifice than Cain. Heb. 114
  • God commanded a lamb
  • Type of that final atonement

We must walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Cor.
57 There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. Prov. 1412 We
cannot follow the majority Matt. 713-14 Walk
by Faith Hear the word of God and Keep it !
Righteousness is Obeying
Righteousness of GodRom.116-17 all your
commandments are truth Ps. 119151 it is
fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness
Matt. 315-16
And they were both righteous before God, walking
in all the commandments and ordinances of the
Lord blameless. Luke 16
Righteous because They obeyed God !
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness,
and going about to establish their own
righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto
the righteousness of God. Rom.103 And
why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things
which I say? Luke 646
The Blood of Abel Speaks
God will avenge every evil Righteous are hated
without cause One way to Worship God That is the
way of Faith Righteousness is Obeying God
The Blood of Abel Speaks
OBEDIENCE brought approval to Abel and it will do
the same for us. HE SPEAKS TODAY by encouraging
us to obey Gods will exactly as commanded !
