Pamphlet 1560 1 John kc 6-2
The children of disobedience are the kenites who are "of" their father the devil (Jn. 8:44).
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Well so were and are his children's.
In fact they hated the Light so much that they crucified Him.
 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
The Reality is that there is much trouble in the world today and we have learned even from this epistle of John that that trouble is ultimately caused by Satan and his children who carry forth their father's spirit of hate and jealousy, just "like Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother" (1 John 3:12).
If you understand simple endtime prophecy then you know (just like John told us in 2:28) that the antichrist is coming, the father of Cain and his children the, kenites, those "children of disobedience" (Eph. 2:2), those who "habitually sin" and transgress the laws of God, those who have no love for their brothers, those who are here and present (manifested) and are busy bringing about the New World Order.
It is happening and it will continue to happen exactly as it is written in His Word until all is fulfilled.
That is why in verse 3:13 John said do not be surprised that the world hates you.
You see, the world is following after, i.e. marching right in step to the pied piping of the Beast System of Rev. 13:1.
The kenites, the sons of Cain, now have complete world control of the 4 Hidden Dynasties of Politics (governments and leaders, even to the level of local municipalities), Economics (the central banks and markets of the world), Education (schools, news media, TV, Hollywood movies, etc.), and yes, Religion (including churchianity).
Those with eyes to see in this final generation are able to witness, to actually see manifested, the "fruition" of following after that wicked spirit which PRODUCES works that are wicked (evil), even after the manner of Cain's evil works, that caused him to "rise up" and slay his brother Abel (1 Jn. 3:12).
Yes, the kenites are for real!
Make no mistake about it!
However, we are going to learn here in chapter 3 that anyone who follows after the "spirit of the evil one", the course of this world controlled by Satan, who is the prince and power of that evil spirit (air), is in big trouble just like the children of the devil.
The apostle Paul put it in real simple terms.
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Well, John is now going to show us the difference between the spirit of two sons, the son of the devil, Cain who murdered his brother, and the Son of God, Jesus Christ who laid down His life for His brothers.
The spirit of the former is the spirit of "hate and jealously" towards your brother, which ultimately leads to murder, death.
The spirit of the latter is "love towards your brother" which leads to life!
The obvious point is, do not be like Cain, be like Jesus Christ, or you might find yourself standing with the tares at harvest time!
However, John is going to take us to the deeper level of wisdom and show us not only the differences but in the next chapter, even how to test the spirits.
What follows in the remainder of this 3rd chapter is very precious "manna" from our Father and if you absorb this bread, it can continue to nourish you for the rest of your life.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
