Topic: IF YOU DO WELL 1
Bible Reading: Genesis 4:6-7
📖6….”And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
📖7….If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.”
🔥The Adamic sin which is still multiplying in the world today can only be individually eliminated by personal adherence to God’s directives. The first manifestation of the effect of that sin was from the kind of offering given by Cain. It brought rejection and shame to him in Gen 4:1-7. This shows that we use our attitude of unfaithfulness to create problems for ourselves. But sweetly, God always proffers a solution, each time a new kind of unfaithfulness towards Him is manifested by man. When Cain manifested unfaithfulness through his offering in Genesis 4:3,5-7, God told him that if he did well next time, he would be accepted.
🔥🔥God also warned Cain that if he didn’t do well the next time, then he had not just committed a sin through his unfaithfulness in offering, but it meant that sin had taken shelter in him according to Gen 4:7. But surprisingly, instead of Cain to repent and exhibit better attitude the next time, he did the worst. He led his brother, Abel to the field, and there slew him and buried him. But his blood cried out from the ground where he was buried…Gen 4:8,10.
🔥🔥🔥Because of man’s connectivity to the beginning sins of Adam, Eve and Cain, this behaviour of not doing well by Cain, is daily springing out from man, even in the Church today. When someone commits an offence, instead of repenting from it, they try to use another offence to cover the first one. David took Uriah’s wife to bed in 2 Sam 11:2-4. When he found out that she was pregnant in verse 5, he sent for Uriah to come from the battle field, wrote a letter of his own death for him, and asked Joab in the letter to make sure Uriah was killed…and it was so (2 Sam 11:6,14-17). Beloved child of God, was that the repentance which God called “DO WELL” in Genesis 4:7? Dearly beloved, let us not use sins to cover former sin.
🙏O Lord, deliver me from the spirit of unfaithfulness in giving, which creates problems for believers, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, empower my blood to always cry out to you for help, against injustice and afflictions while am still alive, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, inject the spirit of constant repentance into me, so I don’t use new sins to cover old sins, in Jesus’ name.
