“Cain is not in Adam’s bloodline” is an article that was written by us and printed by the Hartsville News Journal on August 8, 2008. And during the 10 years that our articles have been published, this one has received more attention than the combined total of all other articles. Your interest in Cain gives cause for us to update “Cain is not in Adam’s bloodline” for you.
ANOTHER LOOK AT CAIN’S BLOODLINE takes you to Genesis chapter three where you learn that through Eve, Satan’s seed brought Cain into this world and also through her, Adam’s, Able. This makes them maternal twins, same mother, two different fathers. It is now time to show how these two bloodlines differ and how it affects you.
Cain fathered a race called Kenites and Able, being slain by Cain, had no prodigy. With proper charting, many can trace their Anglo-Saxon bloodline back to Adam and Eve. And Able without prodigy, Genesis 4:25-26 KJV shows your race reaching back to Adam through Seth, the first of Adam’s children to have offspring:
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.
Peeking into Cain’s genealogy, the Hebrew Manuscripts show Cain to be the origin of the Kajin tribe, Kenites; Cain in Hebrew is Qayin:
Qayin, Hebrew 7014, Strong’s Qayin, kah’-yin; the same as Hebrew 7013 (qayin), 7069 (qanah)); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe: - Cain, Kenite (-s) Cain, being the first child born, fathered the Kajin Tribe, Kenite (-s).
And in Genesis 4:11-12 KJV, God is cursing Cain:
And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand.
When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
God places Cain with an indentifying mark, a mark that distinguishes him and his prodigy, a mark showing that the soil of this earth will not yield its fruit to them.
Not one farmer can be found amongst Cain’s descendants. Eve is their mother and the fact that they are unable to grow anything helps to identify them; Genesis 4:15 KJV shows their mark and its continuing affect:
And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
Cain is marked when God sends him to the land of Nod, a place where the Sixth Day Creation exists; Genesis 4:17 KJV shows him there with a wife:
