Passage: Genesis 4:13 - Genesis 5:19
13 And Satan came among them, saying, I am also a son of God, and he commanded them, saying, Believe it not. And they believed it not; and they loved Satan more than God. And men began from that time forth to be carnal, sensual and devilish.
Intro Satan estranges man from God -- Salvation preached -- Birth of Cain and Abel -- Secret combinations -- Abel slain, Cain cursed -- Secrets revealed by Lamech's wives -- The earth cursed.
1 And the Lord God called upon men, by the Holy Ghost, everywhere, and commanded them that they should repent;
2 And as many as believed in the Son, and repented of their sins, should be saved. And as many as believed not, and repented not, should be damned. And the words went forth out of the mouth of God, in a firm decree, wherefore they must be fulfilled.
3 And Adam ceased not to call upon God; and Eve also his wife.
4 And Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord; wherefore he may not reject his words. But, behold, also Cain hearkened not saying, Who is the Lord, that I should know him?
5 And she again conceived, and bare his brother Abel. And Abel hearkened unto the voice of the Lord. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
6 And Cain loved Satan more than God. And Satan commanded him, saying, Make an offering unto the Lord. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.
7 And Abel, he also brought, of the firstlings of his flock, and of the fat thereof; and the Lord had respect unto Abel, and to his offering, but unto Cain, and to his offering, he had not respect.
8 Now Satan knew this, and it pleased him. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? Why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well thou shalt be accepted, and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door; and Satan desireth to have thee, and except thou shalt hearken unto my commandments, I will deliver thee up, and it shall be unto thee according to his desire; and thou shalt rule over him, for from this time forth thou shalt be the father of his lies.
10 Thou shalt be called Perdition, for thou wast also before the world, and it shall be said in time to come, that these abominations were had from Cain, for he rejected the greater counsel, which was had from God; and this is a cursing which I will put upon thee, except thou repent.
11 And Cain was wroth, and listened not any more to the voice of the Lord, neither to Abel his brother, who walked in holiness before the Lord.
12 And Adam also, and his wife, mourned before the Lord, because of Cain and his brethren.
13 And it came to pass, that Cain took one of his brother's daughters to wife, and they loved Satan more than God.
14 And Satan said unto Cain, Swear unto me by thy throat, and if thou tell it thou shalt die; and swear thy brethren by their heads, and by the living God, that they tell it not; for if they tell it they shall surely die; and this that thy father may not know it; and this day I will deliver thy brother Abel into thine hands.
15 And Satan swear unto Cain, that he would do according to his commands. And all these things were done in secret.
16 And Cain said, Truly I am Mahan, the master of this great secret, that I may murder and get gain. Wherefore Cain was called Master Mahan; and he gloried in his wickedness.
17 And Cain went into the field, and Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, that while they were in the field, Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
18 And Cain gloried in that which he had done, saying, I am free; surely the flocks of my brother falleth into my hands.
19 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel, thy brother? And he said, I know not, am I my brother's keeper?
