CITIES = CENTRALISATION = CONTROL!!!
DID YOU KNOW:
That THE FIRST CITY EVER BUILT was built by A MURDERER!?
AND that IT WAS THE BEGINNING of INDUSTRIALISATION!?
AND IT WAS THE BEGINNING of CORRUPTION & PERVERTION, that got SO BAD that God had to DESTROY it all with THE FLOOD!?
(BEFORE this mankind was agricultural, agrarian and vegetarian, including all the creatures on Earth. Nothing ate meat and animals weren’t hunted, neither did animals hunt each other, until AFTER the Flood! The recorded people who chose to keep following God were almost all nomadic, shepherds, herders, farmers, which is whey they were probably closer to Him!)
Gen 4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. (God knew what man was going to become and tried to prevent it right there!)
Gen 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. (He went to sleep, spiritually, after separating himself from God!)
Gen 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. (“In his own image” in other words!)
Gen 4:18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
Gen 4:19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
Gen 4:20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
Gen 4:21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
Gen 4:22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
Gen 4:23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. (And so it all began! – And what are the primary targets in WAR? Where are “the spoils of war” found? Where are the populations eliminated, or captured to become slaves of the “victors”? What is war all ABOUT? “Profit”? In WHAT? “Principles”? “Morals”?)
Gen 4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
(Interesting reference here:
Mat 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Mat 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.)
