What was the mark God put on Cain when he was cursed?

Question:

Answer

Pastors’ response: You know a lot of people say a lot of stupid things now they lift from the bible and this is one of them. They say that it had to do with the colour of his skin, I will like to read that portion to you first, is in Genesis 4, you know the lord had a problem with Cain. Cain killed his brother Abel and God punished him for doing that but then when he complained, I am going to read from verse 13 a fairly long one and I want you to listen to this, Genesis 4:13 “And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater that I can bear”. What was the punishment you say that had nothing to do with the colour of his skin, let me read it to you from verse 12, God said to him,...

They say that it had to do with the colour of his skin, I will like to read that portion to you first, is in Genesis 4, you know the lord had a problem with Cain. Cain killed his brother Abel and God punished him for doing that but then when he complained, I am going to read from verse 13 a fairly long one and I want you to listen to this, Genesis 4:13 “And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater that I can bear”. What was the punishment you say that had nothing to do with the colour of his skin, let me read it to you from verse 12, God said to him,aybe I should read you the story just better okay, beginning from verse 9 after Cain had killed his brother, Genesis 4:9 “And the LORD said unto Cain, where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? Vs 10 “And he said, what hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground. Vs 11 “And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; Vs 12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.” That was his punishment, God said you are going to be a wandering man, you just going to be moving from place to place. You know that means you will have no peace, you have no rest that’s what God said to him, restlessness will be your lot and that’s the same thing today. You know those who kill others and those who terrorize the lives of others they are not at rest, they are forever on the run, running from place to place, hiding from…their life is terrible because he killed somebody. So, this was his punishment and Cain said in verse 13 “And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Vs 14 “Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me”. <br> <p>Did you see that now Cain is complaining he says oh God now you’ve driven me out and everywhere I go somebody is going to be looking out to kill me. Genesis 4:15 “And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” Now God says nobody must kill Cain, anybody who does it vengeance will be taken against him seven times as much. Now here is where the problem is, here is where the question is coming from Genesis 4:15 “And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.” The Lord set a mark on Cain and many bible commentators have actually used the scripture to say that Cain was made to look strange in his body so that anybody who saw him will say “owoooow!” and they will go away from him and some even went has far as to use this to justify slavery of black people many years ago because they said black people were descendants of Cain. Now let me make this clear to you, there is nobody in the earth today that is a descendant of Cain, nobody in the earth that is a descendants of Cain, nobody because the bible tells us how that all the descendants from Adam that you have in the earth today came through Seit. You have to understand that no through Cain, well that’s another day’s story this is something that I understand there is nobody in the earth today that is a descendant of Cain but this has nothing, this mark anyway has nothing to do with the punishment on Cain and actual fact it was a blessing here if you notice. The punishment was that you will be a fugitive and vagabond, here about the mark it was something positive because God had to set a mark on him so that nobody will kill him. Now but what kind of mark was this? The Hebrew word here is “OATH’’ and it’s a strange word here and it actually refers to a miraculous sign, so it wasn’t something on his skin, it wasn’t a cut of some kind, it wasn’t a physical sign of some kind. So God didn’t put a physical sign on his body, what it says here he set a mark upon Cain, he didn’t say it set a mark on his body, it wasn’t on his body he set it on Cain. Now the reason he says Genesis 4:15 “…And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him”. That’s what the bible says so nobody will kill him, now did God ever do anything like this in the world if you want to know exactly what God did here, you have to look at the scripture and say how did God do things like this. Did he ever do anything like this to anybody else, so you can know what that mark could have been? Emphatically yes, in the 18th chapter of the book of Acts, the bible tells us something and I want you to go there and look at it. I am going to read from verse 9 “ Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: Vs 10 “For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.<br> <p>Now here was Jesus talking to Paul (Saul of Tharsisous) and the bible says the Lord Spake to him in the night by a vision and said to him be not afraid, speak and hold not your peace and then he says I am with you and no man can touch you to hurt you. I am with you, now how was he going to accomplish this, the people weren’t going to see Jesus with Paul to stay clear off him, no there was a supernatural presence of God, there was an unseen presence to guide and to protect him. So, in all that period, nobody would touch him. It was something supernatural that’s exactly what God was talking about when he says and the LORD set a mark on Cain. It’s a supernatural mark and that’s what that word also refers to, a supernatural sign which means miraculous sign there was a divine presence about Cain such that one would touch him, no one would kill him. This is the same thing that he did for Paul, when he said now have got many people in the city don’t be afraid. As long as you are doing the job here nobody is going to touch you meaning if anybody even dreamt of it, if anybody wanted to do anything about it they will fail because God had a mark on Paul. Now you can understand is the same thing about us, his got a mark on us. We are protected divinely by the hand of God. Hallelujah!! So that’s not a.. He wasn’t talking about the skin, mark on his skin he was talking about something spiritual. Less
