The man Adam came
First was he
And a king he was made
All in him have the right to rule
But fell he did with the kings in him
He stooped, bowed, bent and in death he stayed
With all men in him.
The last Adam came
Second is He
And the King He is
All that fell have the right to rule in Him
Life He has for all the kings that will believe in Him
He stooped, bowed, bent but in victory He rose
With all men in Him.

Gen 4:3 — Gen 4:5
In course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.
I will first want to exclaim loudly that Cain didn’t just bring an offering to God, he knew it was his duty to offer sacrifice to God. Cain had a relationship with God enough for him to understand that he owed God allegiance by the fruits of his labour and he knew enough that God is worth it.
He was reluctant to give God His due. He held back more than he should. Cain deliberately made God’s worth small in his eyes.
Cain wanted so much to please God but he was reluctant to do what it will take him to have his wishes. If wishes are truly horses, even beggers will ride on them.
Many of us started out like Cain and if we are not careful to correct our mistakes and set our hearts right, we will end up as murderers, like Cain. Don’t let us ever forget that Cain knew God, loved God but wanted God’s favour with less.
Unto whom much has been given, much more is expected.

The Lord’s Covenant With Abram
After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:
“Do not be afraid, Abram.
I am your shield,
your very great reward. ”
But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus? ” And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.”

There is actually a pattern to specific results in life, they are very well represented in the Bible and their infallible trail were so clear that Men and Women across the sand of time weaponized them. These group of people seems to understand that looking danger and hopelessness in the eyes is the surest way to defeating it. It seems to me that they KNEW that not minding the process of some specific risks and riding above the waves of fear is the surest way to breakthrough. Such people understand that a seed that will survive and live has the understanding that death is not a destination but a passage.

The spiritual significance of the seventh day rest by God is an indication that after diligent work has been done and you’ve poured yourself into your assignment, there must be a strategy in the event’s timeline where you relax and see the display of what you’ve done. We’re not meant to work forever, no! We’re not meant to labour always. There must be a time when what we have done will speak for itself. It shall be seen and known if we’ve built with stones or sands.
