The Way of Cain (3 of 5)
by Ernest Easley
Now join me in the fifth and final one-chapter books in the Bible: the book of Jude! This 25 verse book is the longest of the one chapter books, yet I'm afraid it's the least known. If you'd be honest ... you probably know more about ''Hey Jude'' from the Beatles, than you do about ''Brother Jude'' from the Bible! Let me tell you why the book of Jude is important to RSBC: it is...

Cain's Homemade Religion (2 of 8)
by Larry Osborne
This week we saw how Abel got caught in the backwash of Cain's sin and ''homemade religion.'' It can be quite disheartening in our pursuit to follow Jesus when we see the wicked succeed and the righteous being maligned. In Psalm 73, how did Asaph maintain his hope in his pursuit to...

God has laid a burden on my heart to deepen and strengthen the character of my life and His people, that is the reason for this series of messages.

Abel: Worshipping Faith (29 of 48)
by Jerry Vines
We are moving into the Bible's Hall of Faith. We have looked at the first three verses, which are introductory in nature. Now, we are going to begin to move through and look at these characters. If I have counted correctly, in this great faith chapter, there are ten Old Testament characters who are discussed in terms of their life of faith-their example of faith.

Cain and Abel: Brother's Keeper or Killer
by Nelson Price
JESUS CHRIST wants to take you with your background and any bitterness it might have produced and turn it into blessings. He takes us with our differences and diversity and works to produce through us that which gives gladness to us and glory to God. This is a clear cut, classic example of diversity found in Genesis 4. It is the story of the first two persons given natural birth...

I want you to take God's Word now this morning and be finding your place at Hebrews chapter 11 if you will, and this morning we are going to begin a series of messages from one of the greatest chapters in all of the Bible.

In this fourth chapter of Genesis we have the first father, the first mother, the first birth, the first son, the first altar, the first murder, and the first death. Here at the beginning of human history, the stream of humanity is divided into two kinds of...
Why Cain's Sacrifice Is Rejected
by Eddie Snipes
One thing we must always keep in mind when studying Genesis or any Old Testament scripture is that though it is a historical account, these events are used by God to point us to His plan and the redemption of sin through Christ. Jesus is the central theme of the Bible - both Old and New Testaments. If you lose sight of this, you will..

Cain: Who Was Given a Second Chance
by Ivor Powell
The story of Cain has always intrigued humankind. He was the first baby to rest in the arms of an adoring mother. He never attended school or played with other children; he never saw a book.
