What is Righteousness?
As you may have noticed, the sons of disobedience have been at war with the sons of righteousness for a long time.
It didn’t begin in Nazi Germany. There has been an ongoing conflict between the two from the very beginning. And Yes: The War has been as fierce inside the Church, as it has been outside the church. The Fake Church has been at war against the Real Church from the beginning. (Just as Cain was at war with Abel.)
Oh, Do you need evidence for that?
Look up the date 1555, and the word martyr, and you’ll get plenty evidence.
The lying church has been killing people in the True Church for 6,000 years. This will explain the Crusades, the Inquisition, The World Wars, the Fight for World Domination, the motivation behind the Papacy, and much more. The evidence for this is all around you. It is saturated throughout history. If you don’t see it, that is because you don’t want to see it, that is because your eye is not good. This conflict is observable, repeatable, and predictable, it is involved in every relationship in the human family.
This War dates back to the very first recorded conflict between Cain and Abel.
The story goes like this: both Cain and Abel came before God to offer a sacrifice, as a part of their covenant responsibility before God. This sacrifice was an act of “appeasement”.* The sacrifice of Abel was accepted by God. The sacrifice of Cain was not accepted by God. It was rejected.
A Side Note: Many today, and throughout history have blamed “religion” for all the worst atrocities committed in history. And they do so, correctly to a point, but with one huge blind spot. They blame true religion and true worship, and true devotion to God for all the evil done by false religion, false converts, false worship, and false evil religious agendas. This is exactly how the liar is able to keep people from their divine destiny. Those who are deceived by a flurry of cover up lies, and demonic mis-directs will actually blame God for all the evil done in the World. A masterful liar can convince his listeners, that the victims are really the perpetrators, and the perpetrators are really the victims. And because a good liar, yells louder, longer, more often, and spreads his lies more diligently, and incessantly, through every form of communication possible: His Lies become the majority opinion, the herd instinct, the large group delusion, which will fortify itself against any cross examination, through threats and perks, and even more lying. Keep reading, and we will get back this topic later.
Why did Abel do what was right and just according to God’s will, and Cain did not?
Abel offered a perfect, spotless lamb from the herd, without defect, about one year old, which was required to maintain his blood covenant relationship with God Most High (El Elyon: אֵל עֶלְיֽוֹן), and to receive the forgiveness of sins, through the blood of the lamb. Abel’s offering was a sacrifice of propitiation*. Abel appeased the wrath of God, and was accepted into the fellowship in the Grace of God, through Abel’s simple, loyal, obedient, trusting, and faith filled act of Worship. In essence, Abel’s whole act of worship, was an act of Faith. It was a display, and a prophetic proclamation, as well as a dramatic participation in the eternal promise of God. (Behold the Hand, Behold the Nail.) More on this in a minute.
* Definition of Propitiation: the act of gaining or regaining the favor or goodwill of someone or something: the act of propitiating or appeasement.
The word propitiation carries the basic idea of appeasement or satisfaction, specifically toward God. Propitiation is a two-part act that involves appeasing the wrath of an offended person and being reconciled to him.
Why was Cain’s offering rejected?
Cain on the other hand, offered a sacrifice from his garden: vegetables. Apparently, Cain felt he was more sophisticated. He did not want to involve himself in the bloody, dirty, job of killing, and gutting, and harming such a vulnerable life, as the life of an innocent spotless lamb. This was repulsive to Cain. What a waste that would be! Cain wanted to offer something much better. He decided in His own mind, that his offering would be more acceptable, less bloody and vile, and thus it would be so much more appropriate and pleasing to God Most High.
Where do you think Cain got his newly evolved higher system of religion and philosophy, of thinking and believing?
I’ll bet you can guess, and you don’t even need a hint.
Cain believed God would see how advanced Cain’s Evolution had become in his own thinking, and how evolved he had become in his worship of God. He did not want to offer a blood sacrifice, and he could not bring himself to kill a perfect spotless, innocent Lamb, or pay the cost of it, even though He knew that was the only acceptable sacrifice that God had required in the past.
But Cain felt confident that He could change God’s mind. And of course, Cain couldn’t bring himself to do that which he believed was wrong in his heart, Right? Cain couldn’t disobey his own belief system in order to Honor the Most High God, could he? That would be disingenuous, for sure, at least Cain thought so, and everyone who would follow in his footsteps.
Apparently, Cain did not want to participate in the whole dramatic and prophetic proclamation of the Messiah to come, that really didn’t interest Cain at all. He was so sophisticated and only wanted to focus on the practicals that he has to live with now. That future type stuff was fine for those spiritual wackos, but Cain had other more important pursuits, like farming and building a City, where people could live together (and take advantage of one another). That seemed much more important than this sacrificial system of faith in some future Messiah, right? That God required of him to believe in someone that wasn’t even born yet … that didn’t seem at all important to Cain and those who wanted to be involved in Cain’s Evolutionary process of living and thinking, agreed with Cain. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Enemy was grooming Cain for the enemy’s big plans, the first murder in the history of the World, and the deceiver was putting every stumbling block he could invent in Cain’s Mind, Heart, and will, to keep Cain from listening to or even hearing the Counsel of God.
Genesis 4:2-7 (KJV) And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. 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.
To Give Cain some credit: The Truth is: There is nothing pretty, or lovely about the Blood Sacrifice of a Innocent, Harmless Lamb. In fact, it is downright gory, ugly, vile and disgusting–to be perfectly honest. But that is exactly the Point. Men of God were required to Perform the Prophetic Picture for 4000 years, ending abruptly at the Cross of Calvary.
Have you ever noticed why God has not asked a single soul to offer a blood sacrifice for 2000 years?
Calvary also known as Golgotha, the Place of the Skull, is the same Place Abraham was commanded by God to offer up his son, Issac, the Son of the Promise. The Son of the Covenant. It was called Mount Moriah, the Mountain of Vision where both Abraham and Isaac enacted a dramatic Vision of the LORD that proclaimed the Coming of His Son. And God promised Abraham, that He (YHWH) would provide the Lamb for the Sacrifice. Moriah, Golgotha. Calvary. It is all one vision, one revelation, one terrible sacrifice, Once and for All.
It is the place where the One Heavenly Father offered up His One and Only begotten Heavenly Son, the Son of the Promise, the Son of the Covenant, the Messiah who would crush Satan’s Head, and who would be stricken in the heal.
Can you see why Cain’s unacceptable offering, so vastly different than Abel’s acceptable offering?
Abel’s offering was an act of True Faith, based on the promise of God. God promised that He would send his chosen one into the world, by the seed of the woman–His Son. God would raise up this man who would carry 1) God’s authority, 2) God’s wisdom, 3) God’s power, and would destroy the kingdom of darkness. He would crush the head of the serpent. Then, the serpent with strike his heel. This is the Faith in which Abel walked, while offering up a perfect spotless lamb from the flock of God, to be a token offering, that would prophetically look forward and declare that the Messiah is coming, and the Messiah would set God’s People free from all Lies, and all Lying Wickedness in this World, and the power of the Evil One who ruled over those who were deceived by his lies.
Abraham saw and worshipped the same God Abel worshipped: Abraham clearly saw “Jesus’ day and was glad about it.” Isaac saw Jesus day, from a very unique perspective, being the lamb laid out on the wood, in the divine drama. Abel saw Jesus’s Day, through the lamb He offered up to God, and also Abel became the First Martyr, the first living & dying witness to the coming One.
David saw Jesus’ Day, just read Psalm 22, and that should remove all doubt. Isaiah saw Jesus’ day, just read Isaiah 52 & 53, in fact the Messiah is pictured all throughout the Prophet Isaiah’s Prophecy. Daniel saw Jesus’s day, Joseph saw it. Judah saw it. Boaz and Ruth saw it. Rahab saw it. Joshua saw it. Moses saw it. Israel saw it. Noah saw it. Jeremiah, Micah, Hosea, Ezekiel, Elijah, Elisha, all the prophets, many of the Kings, foreign and domestic saw it. And everyone who saw it was transformed by what they saw. It is the very same today, only we are looking backward to all the was accomplished on the cross, while others looked forward.
All those who come into a blood covenant relationship with El Elyon, the God Most High will worship the same King that Abel & Abraham worshiped almost 4 to 6 thousand years ago.
I apologize for the inconvenience
but I am still editing below this line.
You will notice below, that the World has a completely separate agenda than the Kingdom of God.
Romans 14:17 (NASB)
17 … for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
How I treat my brother and sister reveals how I trust and believe in God.
John 16:6-16 (KJV) 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
- Of sin, because they believe not on me;
- Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
- Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
