By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. Hebrews 11:4 Was the faith of Abel, the seed of the woman, who would crush the head of the serpent. Was that seed suppose to have come through Abel rather than Cain and thus it is stated of Seth; For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. Gen 4:25 Does faith have to do with God's choice rather than what one did? Can we hear his blood crying out from the ground because Abel was dead in Christ? and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
