GENESIS 4:7

-You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”-

  • God is again reaching out to Cain, telling him what to do to avoid sinning further. Cain has now 2 choices , God is helping him to make the right choice that will eventually redeem him/save his life.
  •  ‘Death’ and ‘Life’ , choose Life!
  • Yes you have sinned, fallen, but there is still an option to bring u back up – choose the right attitude in that situation you are in-Repent and you will be accepted again Or else ,Watch Out’ hard struggle’ is waiting.
  • To REFUSE’ to do what is right…, To refuse the One who speak ( See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?)
  • When we DO NOT actively CHOOSE do what is right – we enter in a state of rebellion- To Refuse-to Not do -To disobey Gods word- Whether we like it or not,we have then become officially Rebellious!
  • Like for Cain-Satan is always on the other end of our disobedience making us NOT feel guilty  about it – anointing us with all the ‘right’ excuses.
  • To Trust God is a hard thing to do – and Satan from day one-Eden- has been actively ,relentlessly injecting doubts in our mind about Gods goodness towards us. (“For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”)- Directly Challenging Gods good  character and perfect plan for his people.It has been the same since and that’s why for us its a lifetime fight/choice to remain trusting.
  • The Devil always comes between our relationship with God-He is jealous- That is his eternal objective .( Chuma)
  • (Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”)Its also quite interesting that God is warning Cain as if sin was a person.
  • 2 things/choices -to choose to remain under Gods protection or not to – there ‘consequences for both choices,choosing not to like Cain is being warned about is choosing the Hard life ,the Me,My strengths and I -life,its choosing Death!
  • (But you must subdue it and be its master) Responsibility of Man:We gotta to use our will/power/want/desires and the power of Self control to conquer the enemy from within/out!
  • After Sinning : ‘WATCH OUT’ God says in Genesis 4:7, BE ALERT’ ,God says in 1 Peter 5-8.(Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.)
