Who was Cain’s wife? Or how did the first sons acquire their wives?
At the outset, the question might come across as rather insignificant. Not so, if one were to consider the fact that the Bible is not, at first glance, exactly forthcoming in the matter.
Having countered the fact, it should come as no surprise that one is exposed by one’s interpretation of it. For example, the churches and their misinterpretations of the same! Personally, I am alarmed by the alacrity with which their ‘base interpretations’ have been received. To their utter shame and loss, they and their followers have invited Judgment upon themselves by bringing disrepute to God’s holy works.
Why? Because THE FACT THAT THE BIBLE DOES NOT ADDRESS THE QUESTION OBJECTIVELY SHOULD SERVE AS SUFFICIENT INCENTIVE TO APPROACH THE SAME SUBJECTIVELY, WHICH HOWEVER IS NOT POSSIBLE IF ONE IS NOT LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
We must recall that which INITIALLY set ‘the male of man’ apart from the rest of God’s creations: he was the only creation that was entrusted with the divine POWER, the power of God’s Word (eg. Gen 2:16).
NOW BEFORE WE RUN INTO HASTY CONCLUSIONS, LET US UNDERSTAND THAT THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD IS GIVEN FOR FOLLOWING THREE REASONS:
1. Firstly, to equip one against all evil – AS DEMONSTRATED AND FULLY EXEMPLIFIED BY JESUS CHRIST ONLY – for eg., refer Matt 4:3-11.
2. Secondly and the MOST IGNORED OF THEM ALL, is to equip one to beget godly offspring for which purpose alone was ‘man’ created in the first place. Read Mal 2:15. Again, this failed to be understood by ‘man’ so that once again the Son of ‘man’ Himself had to demonstrate and exemplify it to us. Refer Matt 13:37-38a, Isa 53:10, Isa 49:21 etc. That is right, man was and is not meant to produce their offspring or the godly offspring by the flesh but by the power of God’s Word.
3. And lastly, so that one is able to faithfully teach and equip fellow men (1 Tim 4:16). Here again, as we know, Adam failed and what followed is now history. Consequently the Old Covenant of God WITH MAN HAS SINCE CEASED TO BE, and the New and Eternal Covenant of God with the Son of man and the ‘woman’ has instead come to pass (Gen 3:15). As such one is no longer dependent on ‘man’ but the Son of man who is also the Son of God to learn all Truth – for example, refer Matt 28:18-20.
We must understand that, even in our fallen state there is ONLY ONE POSITIVE OPTION left to us – and that is TO RETURN OR TURN TO GOD. Failing which, just as the ‘first man’ did, all mankind likewise choose to go their own way and blame God and everything else when things go wrong (Gen 3:12), as MOST CERTAINLY THEY WILL!
UNDERSTAND THE PROVISION OF GOD (Matt 5:45) :
The very idea that one must fend for oneself and not depend on God for everything, who is one’s Maker, Father, Provider and all, IS OF THE EVIL ONE. Hence the churches’ approach to this question is as EVIL as their PSEUDO-FINDINGS!
Will He who was able to provide the perfect companion for the first male fail to provide for the rest of the mankind? Will He who created all things and made them available for man withhold His love from them – righteous or unrighteous?
Yet who among men are willing to put their absolute trust in God like the widow of Zarephath did and reaped the benefits thereof both in this life and eternally (Lk 4:25-26)?
THE EVIL THEORY OF INCEST!:
With regard to the matter of the WIVES OF THE EARLY SONS, whether one concludes as the churches do, TO INCEST, since as they perceive there is no mention of other women except for the first woman and her daughters (Gen 5:4); or TO THE PROVISION OF GOD SAME AS HOW ADAM’S WIFE CAME TO BE – the fact remains that all men (with very few exceptions) like the churches continue to thwart the WILL AND PROVISION OF GOD which is in the Power of the Word of God only.
To thwart the Will of God is to thwart the Work of the Spirit and substitute the DIVINE PROVISION with ‘flesh’ and the works of the flesh. Therefore all mankind who are merely the fruits of flesh perish like the flesh (Jn 3:6, Jn 6:63, Matt 12:32 etc.).
How could these evil men, these unclean and basest of men masquerade about as angels of light? How were they aloud to propagate their evil theories? And how did their listeners come to believe them? These are some of the questions every person who desires to get on the right side of God ought to ask themselves. Has not the Word of God testified, “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what makes a man ‘unclean’..” (Matt 15:19-20)
[Oh, and lest we ignore the fact, the unrepentant churches take it one step further and openly thwart the Word of God to blame women for the curse of death that came upon all mankind because of them. Just like the first father did (Gen 3:12). For eg., note how in some of their funeral services they most arrogantly declare “MAN WHO IS BORN OF THE WOMAN HAS BUT A SHORT TIME TO LIVE…IN THE MIDST OF LIFE WE ARE IN DEATH.” completely in contravention to the Truth that death came upon mankind through the MAN and not through the WOMAN – refer Gen 3:17-19.
In their blind arrogance, they do not realize that they only testify to their UNDENIABLE FALSEHOOD for the very statement not only contradicts the TRUTH but also attempts to refute the VERY GOSPEL which IN ADHERENCE TO THE TRUTH (Gen 3:15) demonstrated that DEATH had no power over Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is also called the Son of man having been born of the ‘FEMALE OF MAN I.E. THE WOMAN’. BECAUSE, HE WAS THE ONLY ONE NOT BORN OF THE FLESH, I.E. OF THE SEED OF CURSED MAN. Instead, He was conceived of the Spirit and BORN of the woman, the woman who having not incurred the curse of death is not in a position to pass it on to anyone.]
Therefore, it is not a wonder that the world, including the churches, have their hands full with ‘sexual immoralities’. Sexual immoralities, to begin with, like incest, sodomy, adultery, fornication, pedophilia etc., IN WHATEVER FORM MARKS THE HEIGHT OF DEPRAVED HUMANITY (Rom 1:28-32), and as always PRECEDES THE JUDGMENT OF GOD (egs. Gen 6:2-3 and Gen 18:17-19:28). So that, once again the outcry against ‘mankind’ reaches the heavens like the tsunami (eg. 1 Tim 5:24), to the very Seat of Judgment – and all advocates of ‘flesh’ along with their sons (Matt 13:38b-42, Rom 1:28-32, Matt 18:6 etc.) is destined to PERISH FOREVER!
