Cain and Abel, Sons of Adam and Eve knew the 10 Commandments!

There are scads of people under the banner of 'Christianity' that go to churches and are taught that the 10 Commandments are no longer part of the doctrine of believers. The Commandments, also known as 'The Law' is somehow nailed to the cross; or done away with by Jesus himself.

The case is usually made because ministers somehow rationalize that the Commandments being given to Moses, and thereby the children of Israel were somehow exclusively to one group of people.
Our God is Not a respecter of persons! (Acts 10:34)!
The commandments as they were proposed to The children of Israel was the same Commandments of God that determined the 'Sons of God' from Adam down to Abraham, Issac, Jacob, and Jacob's (aka Israel) 12 sons.

LET IT BE KNOWN: The Biblical definition of sin, is; the transgression of the Law. (1John 3:4)

Commandment Number 6, as previously discussed in "The 10 Commandments" (thou shalt not kill) [to read click here], was known and understood by the people mentioned in the Bible from the very beginning.

Take for instance Cain and Abel.

"And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.  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. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell." (Genesis 4:3-7)

"And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.  And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?" (Genesis 4:8-9)

The real purpose for this post is verses 8 and 9. In these verses Cain murders his brother Abel, and then when he is questioned about it he lied and said he didn't know where Abel was.
We can therefore reason and conclude that Cain new the 6th commandment 'thou shalt not kill' and wanted to hide the fact that he broke the Law of God.
Consider because had he not known the 10 commandments, or had the Law not been applied to him Cain would have confidently said, "I killed my brother he is buried under a rock!"

Cain lied because he knew he was wrong. Cain takes it a step further by trying a corny 'am i my brothers keeper' line to make it seem as if he has know way of knowing where his brother is.

FOOD 4 THOUGHT (you do the dishes) :
In Verse 3-7, the reason the Lord had respect to Abel's offering is because it was the "firstlings of his flock." Abel also brout 'the fat' of his flocks as offering, the "Firstlings" or first fruits or the first 10% are the tithes.
That which is required!
 Cain missed that part as he brought 'fruit of the ground,' as an offering unto the Lord.    Imagine being in school, and doing all the extra credit work in a class, but completing no assignments. The instructor is Not going to respect that! :-\  LOCKSMIF... LLAVES (keys)

 May the Lord add a blessing to the study of His Word in Jesus name...
