I would like to know what anyone reading this thread thinks and or believes as to why Abel offered blood sacrifices and his brother did not offer blood sacrifices? Why did Abel live by faith and Cain did not? Is, "faith," relative to this statement? Gen. 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Will there be, "faith," if there is not a seed of the woman to come? Will that seed of the woman be conceived of in the woman by God is a Spirit of John 4:24, The Father? For there to be, "faith," will that seed need to be compliant and or obedient to the will of the Father? We are told that Cain was of his father the devil. Was the seed of the woman going to come through Cain? If the answer is no, which I believe it is, can we then say that Cain was not of faith and he was not going to do things, by faith? Considering this verse, was Abel had Cain had not killed him before he had children to be the seed unto the seed of the woman? Genesis 4:25 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. Was Abel the seed of faith but Satan through Cain killed him, childless, and God replaced him with Seth? Did Abel offer blood sacrifices because he was of God unto the Christ, that is of faith. Was he justified, and righteous because he was of God. His blood, the soul of the flesh, Lev 17:11 cries out from the ground. Will he be raised from the dead incorruptible to inherit the kingdom of God? Why? I say because the word of God, speaks of him as being of God, of the faith, which is the seed of the woman to come and learn and become obedient unto shedding his blood, for our sins and not because of something he may or may not have believed with his mind. BTW I am not going to further respond to this thread unless invited and it is my thread. I would just like to see some discussion relative to the above and to understand others understanding. I'm sick of all the crap and name calling that goes on in the threads on this board.
