Pamphlet #6232 Genesis KC 11-3

Remember, since Cain was not Adam's son,
he is not listed in Adam's genealogy in chapter five.

Genesis 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
And so begins the genealogy of Cain, here in chapter four of Genesis.

You now know that Cain's wife was not a daughter of Adam and Eve.

And remember, since Cain was not Adam's son,
he is not listed in Adam's genealogy in chapter five.

[18] And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
It would be a good exercise to look up the meanings of each of these names.

But for the sake of brevity, I would have listed them here.

There is, however, one major point of which you should take note.

The names of these kenites are very similar (and some even the same)
to the names of the offspring of Adam, listed in chapter five.

Methusa-el vs. Methusel-ah
Enoch vs. Enos and Enoch
Mehujael vs. Mahalaeel
Not only do the "tares" look like the "wheat" (Mat. 13),
but you cannot reliably tell them apart by their names either.

Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;...

[19] And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
[20] And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

[21] And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

[22] And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.

Tubal-cain also means producer of weapons. Mrs. Bristowe in her book "Sargon the Magnificent", gives some great history about this worker of brass and iron.

And so it was that Cain went forth into the land of Nod and founded Babylon.

The history books declare that about 3800 B.C., "poof",
that great civilization suddenly appeared with such advances in art and law
and astronomy and language, etc.,
that it defies the explanations of evolutionists who require great lengths of time to justify their theories.

It was because of Cain's superior intellect
and the knowledge he had learned from our Father and his earthly parents,
that he was able to easily subdue the sixth day man.

It would be from the religions founded by this one, Cain,
that all the nations of the earth would be made "drunk".

Rev. 14:8
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
And again regarding Babylon:
Rev. 17:2
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
We thank our Father that His Son, Jesus Christ,
will soon put an end to this maddening deception once and for all.

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.
