14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.Genesis 4:14
The moment Cain slew his brother his faith in all mankind sunk to a new low, paranoia set in, there was no place safe in all the earth. Really a fate worse than death is faithlessness, total paranoia, no where safe, no where to rest and one way to solve that problem is to kill all that may kill you or harm you – Bloodthirsty!
So God taught Habakkuk in the famous “The righteous shall live by faith” passage and take special note of the next verse that gives us Adolf Hitler, Stalin, and those in the past behind genocide.
4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:Habakkuk 2:4-5
Now please note the opposite – Grace- Favor – Faith in God and in your brother after all Jesus has so much faith in your brother he died for him – How can we treat him like we have faith in him – GRACE. He is my favorite.
Jesus taught to even call someone fool was as murder and don’t I start wondering if people are talking about me as I talk about them – paranoia – faithlessness- BLOODTHIRSTY! AHHH Jesus I need your blood to cover my guilt and shame…. Is there any thanking Him for that? Love God – Love Others such a better way to LIVE – BY FAITH.
