Gen 4:15 “And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.” I believe the mark here is dual fold. Spiritual as well as natural, and both of it can be referred to as THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
We don’t know how old Cain or Abel was when Cain killed Abel, but we get an idea that both of them must have been pretty young, perhaps teenagers who heard from their parents about God and about the fall. They then both began to seek the Lord. They had no guidance as to how to worship God and Abel seem have gotten it right while Cain did not. So instead of Cain being glad his brother got it right, he got angry and killed him perhaps in a rage of jealousy. God then placed a mark upon him so that anyone finding him would NOT kill him. What was that mark that could protect him from the anger and justice of others?
Let’s look at the natural mark first. In the natural Cain as discussed in my previous article was NOT the son of Adam but the offspring of the seed which the serpent BEAST gave Eve. Gen.3;15 clearly implies that Eve had a seed from the Beast before she received seed from her husband through a legal sexual deed in Gen.4:1.
Thus the BEAST, a creature so close to the human being that it could speak and gave seed to Eve and have offspring with her BEFORE the curse of Gen.3 , used the opportunity to break God’s moral laws, to plant his seed with a human. Satan inspired him to it and then God had to change, or reshape, or recreate him into a crawling form, that could never cross over again. It is this form of serpents we know today, but there was another form before that. Through science we have learned: “ A child inherits DNA from the mother’s egg (23 chromosomes) and the father’s sperm (also 23 chromosomes). Each parent contributes one half of the child’s DNA. Each of us has 23 pairs of chromosomes.”
So what does this mean for Cain? By the reproduction laws of God which enabled that serpent BEAST to plant seed and have a son with Eve, Cain had the natural Mark OF THE BEAST, his father. O, yes-naturally he had the giant mark of the beast. By God having created such an intelligent speaking giant serpent Beast between man and chimpanzee, God opened the possibility for that giant mark to cross over to humans, which it did as we read in Gen.6. We all have the marks of our fathers and mothers as we have read from science.
If your dad was a big guy, and perhaps had unique features like outstanding ears, the likely hood that you would have the same features or marks is very great as you have half of his DNA. Cain’s father was a giant and that MARK of that beast or features which identified him as the son of a giant, was what was going to protect Cain from getting killed.
The poor boy didn’t realize what happened at the fall and after he killed Abel he thought other coming giant sons of Adam might want to revenge the death of Abel. There was nothing around that could indicate to him that he might not be the son of Adam. His father had been transformed, and he then complained to God that he might get killed. But God reassured him that would not happen. And that was certainly a very low possibility, because Cain was the ONLY giant around after his father’s demise.
His father who was responsible for that giant mark upon him was no longer around to pass that kind of seed onto humans, as his kind was belittled and recreated into something lowly and crawling along the ground. So if giants were going to become more, it could only come through Cain.
“ And watch, then here comes your giants. Then Cain went to the land of Nod. If his daddy was a great big giant of a fellow, what would Cain be like? His daddy. And he went to the land of Nod and took one of his sisters. Only way he could do, there was no more females could come, only through Eve. They claim they had seventy sons and daughters. If--if there was no females... The Bible don't record females when they're born, just man. And when... If there was no more females than Eve, when she died the human race ceased to exist. They had to have daughters. He'd have to marry his own sister.” [The Serpent Seed-by W. M. Branham- www.themessage.com ]
Who of the little sons of Adam was going to mess with the son of the giant BEAST? He had the protective mark of his father through the laws of God. So yes God placed that mark upon Cain as his laws were used. Who was like the beast God created? And who was like his offspring? Who was going to arrest Cain for murder? Only his own feelings of guilt were going to torment him into a building wanderer. When you look up to that guy about twice your size or more, you might have second thoughts of even whispering that he is a murderer who belongs in jail. He or one of his sons may hear and then you won’t be able to shoot your mouth off no more.
His sons were equally powerful, and messing with that clan was suicide. Even in his old age of let’s say 890 years, no one was going to kill Cain. You mess with their daddy and one of them will punch you 7 times harder than your best shot. Add a couple of them together like Lamech who also slew a young man, and they were going to carry a punch 70 times 7 bigger than your best efforts. Lamech even bragged about it. So who were like the sons of the beast? Who had a mark like them, and who could compete with them in anything?
They had no match, for they carried the mark of their forefather. Besides that God gave them further protection. Seth’s sons became sons of God-same as Christians is today. And sons of God do NOT KILL. They have God’s moral laws against that. If they do today, they are certainly backslidden and risk the vengeance of God upon them.
And if you think Cain and his sons were not so bright giants that could be outwitted in another way, think again. After God told Cain he would not have green fingers as a crop farmer anymore as every seed he would plant would die out, he soon found another career. If God was going to interfere by having seeds die at his planting, he was simply going to do something else, and survive.
Cain was so intelligent that he is known as the first man to have ever built a city, where all other farmers of Genesis could congregate, do business, and have pleasure. Cain was the first architect and city building contractor in modern terms. What he designed and learned in those days of people living for hundreds of years, he also built. If you live that long you certainly learn a lot. And City building is for the intelligent.
There are great sciences and planning attached to it. So he was an intelligent giant. Just look at the works of the ancient city builders. Cain or some of his offspring must have built some of the pyramids. It is so well built that it still stands as wonders of the world. It a puzzle we still struggle with. You can read what the author of the Book : “The puzzle of ancient man” has to say about them and watch his you tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_qgO_N2OhE
We don’t even know how they moved those massive blocks, and does not have the technology even today to replicate it! Even though they were giants, they used super technology, and long lasting stones to build. Every year millions flock to Egypt to behold the works of those renowned ancient people. Indeed they were men of renown, men whose works is respected even in this advanced civilization. It still stands as unsurpassed memorials of their genius.
A group of Russian scientists went to the pyramids and other structures around the world and is convinced these people used advanced machine tools to build it. Tools with such abilities, some of it is yet to be equaled. They posted their findings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuAZ2HojyJY Check this out and decide yourself.
And o yes the Bible agree. As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be before the coming of the Lord it says. Yes! We are only now coming up to where they were. Super ADVANCED. We are only now experiencing days such as they had: As it was then, now it is also.
Contrary to what some may want to believe while only fooling themselves-there was an advanced society before us. Today we dealt with the physical mark only, and might in future look into the kind of mark that beast left that is still around today.
