We continue on with the further revealing of the two diametrically opposed kingdoms – one is the temporary decaying humanistic secular physical kingdom(s) of the world, and the other is the eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God – which taken together reveals God the Father’s foreknown and predestined plans and judgment to deal with the curse of sinful man, and His blessing on repentant man.

Continuing in Genesis Chapter 4, Cain in his self-pity literally thumbed his nose at God when he rejected God’s offer of His Grace and Providence over him, his family, and his followers by preferring to continue to sin by doing it his own way.

© You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.

Genesis 4:11 {God the Son said} Now you {Cain} are under a curse and driven from the ground {Garden of Eden}, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you work the ground {in the Land of Nod/wandering}, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.”

We now have the unfolding of God’s judgment of Cain’s unrepented sins. God’s foreknown plans and desire to “save” him would have made him a wanderer using the “highway to heaven” in the Land of Nod as an alien in the world for the rest of his life thus making him dependent on God’s foreknown and predestined plans for his life! But this was NOT Cain’s mind-set nor spiritual heart. His unrepented sins now set him up to become Satan’s puppet bringing forth the materialization of the “kingdom(s) of the world” with Satan as their “ruler.”
John 14:30 I {Jesus} will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he {Satan} has nothing in Me. NKJV

13 Cain {in his whimpering and whining – oh, pity me God} said to the Lord, “My punishment is more than I can bear. 14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence {which is a fabricated lie as we will see}; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” {Cain’s SIXTH unrepented sin! Cain had absolutely NO remorse! All he was interested in was “ME, MYSELF, and I! O whoa is me! Cain’s flesh/worldly mind-set and spiritual heart is revealed! If he were to be a “restless wanderer” on the earth, he would have to trust in God to provide for him. He does NOT want to trust in God but in self and the things of the world that he can see and manipulate!}
Romans 8:6-8 Now the mind of the flesh [which is {common} sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever]. 7 [That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot. 8 So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him. AMP

15 But the Lord {in His Providence and Grace still trying to “save” Cain} said to him, “Not so; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain {in unrepentant pride} went out from the Lord’s presence and lived {settled/put down temporary roots} in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

The Land of Nod means “land of wandering,” but Cain did not wander rather he took actions which established “roots of seeming permanency” in the land of Nod/wandering {eventual “kingdom(s) of the world”} by building a city in:
17 Cain lay with his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch.

By Cain directly disobeying God by “putting down temporary roots” in the Land of Nod and then building a “city,” we now come to the revealing and comparing of the eternal spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God to the demonically inspired and formed humanistic secular kingdoms of the world. God tried to reveal His Love and Grace to Cain by offering to take care of him and his family as they wandered on the spiritual “highway to heaven” through the “Land of Nod” eventually upon his death entering the “Kingdom of God,” but he refused to accept it and went about “building a city.” What we MUST understand is his “building a city” means that Cain and his family and followers were in ABSOLUTE and TOTAL REBELLION AGAINST GOD and His Providence and His desire and promise to take care of him and/or them!

The use of the word “building” means that Cain did NOT finish this city, but its “influence” continued to spread from that time and place in history to the time and place in history to the city of Babel which contained the Tower of Babel. Cain’s city was the blue print and start of the infrastructure for humanistic secular governments for the forming of the “kingdom(s) of the world” for that immediate region at that time and place in history. What we MUST also understand is this “city” housed a large number of the people of the earth who agreed with Cain’s mind-set towards God i.e. they were also anti-God.

At the dissolution of the building of the Tower of Babel in the city of Babel and the scattering of its citizens upon the face of the earth, the concept of the “kingdom(s) of the world” would ultimately spread around the world from which came the politics, laws, rules, and social interaction that govern the humanistic secular kingdoms of the entire world “TODAY.”
Genesis 11:8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from that place upon the face of the whole earth, and they gave up building the city. AMP

This anti-God human movement which was from the beginning of man is comparable to sinful man down through the ages who did NOT desire to know, love, and serve the true living loving God – the unsaved lost sinner i.e. the Unbeliever. This mind-set of sinful man was the SAME towards Jesus Christ when He came to the earth some 2000 years ago and still continues to this day!
John 1:10 He {God the Son/Jesus Christ} came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him {nor did/does it want to}]. AMP

God offered Cain the “Kingdom of God,” but he in his love for the world sought to start the building of his own “kingdom” from which evolved the humanistic secular “kingdom(s) of the world” containing the things of this world. This “city and its people” was the foundation of Satan’s domain and demonically inspired “kingdom(s) of the world.” Can you see how Cain had the SAME evil demonic mind-set and spiritual heart as Satan which made Cain a cohort with Satan in this demonic setting up of the humanistic secularist “kingdom(s) of the world?”
1 John 2:15-17 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, {“love for the Father”} is not in him. {versus the “love of the Father” is not in him. NKJV} 16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things] — these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. 17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. AMP

I MUST note that 1 John 2:15 can be correctly translated in two ways giving quite different meanings. IF a Christian loves and puts the world and the things of the world ahead of God, the “love of the Father” {NASB; NKJV; KJV; NIV} or the “love for the Father” {AMP; RSV} is NOT in them. Both translations are correct BUT with quite different meanings! It is very important to correctly understand the implications of both translations. If a Christian loves the world and the things of the world, the LOVE of God is NOT in them. This has extremely serious implications!!! The Godhead does NOT love nor live in that Christian! IF THAT IS THE CASE, THEY ARE NOT SAVED!!!
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, AMP
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead — Father, Son and Holy Spirit — and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP
Romans 8:9 But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God]. [Rom 8:14.] AMP

Let’s change the word “of” to “for” and see what that means. If a Christian loves the world, the LOVE for God is NOT in them. This also has extremely serious implications!!! One of the things that goes with one being saved is their “love for God.” This same love for God is the SAME love we are to have for one another is AGAPE – an unconditional and all inclusive love that is diametrically opposed to the love that we had when we were “unsaved” in the world. There is an old saying, “There is ‘head knowledge’ about God and there is ‘heart knowledge’ about God.” The same thing can be said for “loving” God. IF your love for God is because you believe in your head that you should, that is diametrically different that loving God with ALL of your heart, soul, mind, and strength! If you love God in your head, you do NOT have a personal relationship with God because of the lack of your “personal” faith in Jesus Christ as your “personal” Savior. You need to look at your salvation. Are you really “saved” in BOTH your spiritual heart and mind or are you just going through the “motions” playing games with God and looking “good” to other Christians, family, and friends?!
Read 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 to find out more about LOVE.
Mark 12:30-31 And you shall love the Lord your God out of and with your whole heart and out of and with all your soul (your life) and out of and with all your mind (with your faculty of thought and your moral understanding) and out of and with all your strength. This is the first and principal commandment. [Deut 6:4, 5.] 31 The second is like it and is this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. [Lev 19:18.] AMP
John 13:34 I {Jesus Christ} give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. AMP
Luke 6:32 If you [merely] love those who love you, what quality of credit and thanks is that to you? For even the [very] sinners love their lovers (those who love them). AMP
John 15:19 {Jesus talking} If you {True Believers} belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. AMP

Cain’s rejection of God’s love and grace of taking care of him and his family and followers as wanderers in the Land of Nod to “put down seeming roots of permanency” in it was Cain’s SEVENTH unrepented sin! This sin culminates all of his unrepented sins which literally nails his spiritual coffin shut in Hell – whereby God judges him as “wicked” which means he is eternally rejected and separated from God. We MUST know and not forget that Cain’s judgment and actions came because of his LOVE/lusting for the world and the things of the world and not for God and the things of God.
1 John 3:12 [And] not be like Cain who [took his nature and got his motivation] from the evil one {Satan – a murderer and a liar from the beginning. [John 8:44]} and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his deeds (activities, works) were wicked and malicious and his brother’s were righteous (virtuous). AMP
1 John 2:15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. AMP

Cain and his followers became the FIRST collaborators of the future “NEW WORLD ORDER” with its “god” – Satan and its One World Government and Religion based on man thinking he can become “god” over creation and his life!

I will try to piece together Satan’s influence and relationship with Cain that resulted in bringing forth the “kingdom(s) of the world.” Cain had initial knowledge and personal relationship with God, BUT the progression of all of his unrepented sins caused him to stray further and further from God and culminated in him building a city which contains the governmental and societal components that goes with that mind-set which eternally separated him from God. As I stated before, Cain was demonically possessed and controlled! His mind-set and spiritual heart was induced by Satan thus they had “parallel” mind-sets and spiritual hearts. Even though Cain came upon the world scene eons after Satan, they were working in “tandem” with one another to accomplish God’s foreknown and predestined plans to bring into existence the demonically inspired “kingdom(s) of the world” with Satan becoming the “god of this world.”
2 Chronicles 20:6 And said, O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven? And do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You. AMP
Daniel 4:17 This sentence is by the decree of the [heavenly] watchers and the decision is by the word of the holy ones, to the intent that the living may know that the Most High [God] rules the kingdom of mankind and gives it to whomever He will and sets over it the humblest and lowliest of men. [Dan 2:21; 5:21.] AMP

BOTH Satan and Cain had initial intimate knowledge of God’s Kingdom in their realms – Satan in “Eden the Garden of God” in the Third Heaven and Cain in the “Garden of Eden” which was situated in the Land of Nod. Satan’s sinning against God caused him to be thrown out of “Eden the Garden of God” in the Kingdom of God in the third heaven to the planet earth. This eventually would result in his acquiring the “kingdom(s) of the world” along with his spiritual demonic angels and his earthly henchmen who had the same sinful mind-set.
Cain sinned against God and was thrown out of the “Garden of Eden” here on earth into the Land of Nod. This resulted in Cain along with him, his family, and his many anti-God followers putting down roots in the world by building a city – a forerunner to the establishing the demonically inspired physical kingdoms of the world along with their earth bound sinful peoples ALL with the SAME sinful mind-set and spiritual heart.

Can you see and understand how the “kingdom(s) of the world” was set up? Satan so inspired and influenced Cain that they BOTH had the SAME evil wicked sinful mind-set and spiritual heart of literally becoming “god” by establishing their OWN kingdoms! And because of the collaboration of what each did one with the other, we have the physical nations, kingdoms, tribes around the world. This is the SAME sinful mind-set and spiritual heart – the loving of the world and the things of the world – that I had {and you too} BEFORE I/we came to know Jesus Christ as my/our personal Savior. Our mind-set and spiritual heart MUST change from loving the world and the things of this world to loving, worshiping, and serving God and extoling Christ in His Kingdom here on earth! This is why the Bible states:
1 John 5:4-5 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the {kingdom(s) of the} world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]? AMP

I must interject that when Cain left the presence of God in the Garden of Eden, we do NOT know what happened to the Garden/Kingdom of God although we do KNOW where the Kingdom of God is “TODAY.” It is and always has been with Jesus Christ and in and among the righteous Old Testament and New Testament children of God. Throughout the Old Testament, God appeared to man in bodily form which is called a “Theophany.” There are many Christians who believe these human bodily forms was Jesus Christ which are called “Christophanies.” In the New Testament, Jesus tells us that if one is in His presence, the Kingdom of God is among them. IF this is true, then every time Jesus appeared in human form whether in the Old Testament {Christophanies} or His being in human form in the New Testament, the Kingdom of God was with Him. God the Son/Jesus Christ was/is the very embodiment and personification of the Kingdom of God! The Saints within Jesus Christ’s Bride Church have the exact SAME embodiment and personification of the Kingdom of God here on earth TODAY!!!
Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you {because of the indwelling of God the Holy Spirit} [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you] {in the Bride Church of Jesus Christ}. AMP
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, crying out, Repent (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. AMP

Romans 14:17 [After all] the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [{spiritual} heart] peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. AMP
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My {spiritual} kingdom (kingship, royal power) belongs not to this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My followers would have been fighting to keep Me from being handed over to the Jews.
