Importance Of Revelation – Cain & Abel

 

Two religious men were called of God to offer a sacrifice. They both did so earnestly. One sacrifice was accepted and the other was rejected.

Abel offered an animal for his sacrifice. Cain, the ultimate vegetarian, offered fruits and vegetables.

Abel’s altar was messy and bloody. Cain’s altar was beautiful and succulent. God chose the ‘dirty’ altar over the ‘clean’ one.

How did Abel know that blood was the essence of the sacrifice? How did he know that without blood, there would be no remission of sins? He knew this by faith – a revelation.

Cain had no revelation. He worshipped God by his mental deduction – which was wrong.

Sincerity and religiosity without a true understanding of the Word is like a well without water or a cloud without rain.

Life From The Dead

 

All that live feed on the dead
Something dies for you to live
If all live you can never thrive
When we savour we devour
Food comes from the not so good
Practice of killing-herbs expire
And animals to give us a new lease
If the sustenance of natural life
Comes from substitutionary death
Then why is the deadly idea rife
That our spiritual life depends
On a bloodless set of commandments
Religion without an atonement ‎ends
In a farce-like you can live on only oxygen
Man shall not live by bread alone-wheat dies
But the Word of God which became flesh
And died too in order that you may rise
To seize the prize of eternally sustained Life
