**Man's Ongoing Rebellion Against God

         In today's reading I from Genesis 4, Adam had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, their first son. Later she bore Abel, another son. In the course of time both Cain and Abel brought an offering to the LORD. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not. Cain greatly resented and was crestfallen. So the Lord said to Cain: "Why are you so resentful and crestfallen. If you do well, you can hold up your head; but it not, sin is a demon lurking at the the door: his urge is toward you, yet your can be his master." This is exactly what today's evildoers need to hear from the Lord! Evil was present then is still here today. I've never seen this many resentful and crestfallen people in this country alone. None of them have been seen walking or talking with their head held up high—they are already in cahoots with the Devil and serving him! One day, this spiritual warfare will be over and we who are with Christ will enjoy universal peace triumphantly with him forever. (By the way, Cain did kill his brother Abel later.)
