The Human You or the DIVINE YOU!
My Beloved – There’s CAIN & an ABEL in each of us! ... A Human You & a DIVINE YOU!!!
Genesis 4: 3 – 8 … “In the course of time Cain presented some of the land’s produce as an offering to the Lord. And Abel also presented an offering—some of the firstborn of his flock and their fat portions. The Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but He did not have regard for Cain and his offering. Cain was furious, and he looked despondent. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you furious? And why do you look despondent? If you do what is right, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”
Beloved – Cain represents the "Human” You (Born first) — the Old You! … Abel is the "DIVINE” YOU (Born Last) — the New You! Cain lived for the Flesh! Abel Lived for the Lord!
The Human You (Unsaved You) is supposed to “Serve” the DIVINE YOU ... the
(Born Again) YOU — the New YOU!
Who’s the Head of Your “House” . . . The Human You or the DIVINE YOU!
The Human You is supposed to be Subject to – Controlled, Influenced & led by the
God told Cain “Sin Was Crouched at his Door” — Translation “SIN was Present ... Hiding & Spying — looking for the right moment to attack and overtake You . . . but
YOU MUST MASTER IT!”
What did God do — He rejected Cain’s Sacrifice ... The Human Him (Flesh)! God accepted Abel’s Sacrifice — the DIVINE Him (Spirit)!
My Beloved – In Galatians 5:19-21, the apostle Paul refers to the Human You as "the WORKs of the flesh" . . . These include "hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, and murders!”
In the end Cain allowed the Human Him — Disobedience, Anger & Hate to Control & Rule Him; He murdered his Brother, Abel! Cain allowed SIN to Be the Head of his “House!”
Abel was led by Love, Submission & Worship … Abel let the Spirit—DIVINE Him ... Control, Influence & Guide Him!
Beloved — the conclusion of the matter … the DIVINE YOU cannot—cannot—cannot be led by the Human You! Jude 1:11 warns “Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain!”
Who’s the Head of Your “House” – the Human You or the DIVINE YOU!
