We all have expectations about the ones we love and who they are to become.  What we choose to pattern ourselves after represents what we hold sacred.  God told Cain not to allow sin to master him or it will consume him.  In Genesis chapter 3, God’s prophecy to Eve leads her to believe that it was Cain that would deliver her redemption.  She thought the one she held in arms was her hope, deliverance, and her promise, but what she really held was a liar and a killer.  A killer only after he was consumed by sin.  A liar once he went down that sinful path.  Offering is demonstrated by Cain and Abel, but what was an acceptable offering?  There are many different offerings and many different reasons for an offering.  Able gave an offering out of FAITH,  this is explained in Hebrew 11:4, By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.  His offering had nothing to do with blood or how the offerings presented needed to be from an animal.  There are firstfruit grain offerings as well as seen Leviticus chapter 2. In Genesis chapter 4, we will see the image and reflection of an offering as it relates in our relationship to our King.   Cain’s offering was filled with unbelief, and there is no bigger curse the earth than hollow, empty, vain religion.  The religions that have a form of godliness but denying the power of God. This was Cain’s offering.
