Bible Question and Answer
Name: David H.
Question: On the 6th day of creation were there other people created. When they say katabole was that the over throw of Satan? Was does the foundation of the world mean?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question David.
Yes, on the sixth day in Genesis 1:24 God created all of the races. Turn your Bible with me to,
26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
This is the sixth day, when our Father created all of the races. Adam and then later Eve were created on what we will call the eighth day, naturally the day after God’s Sabbath, His seventh day of rest. Adam and Eve are the line of people who Jesus Christ would come through, who would provide salvation to the entire world. So their purpose was much different than the rest of the other people.
27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.”
On the sixth day God created the races of people male and female as verse 28 tells us to “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth“.
With respect to the Greek word “katabole“, this is a excerpt from one of our Bible studies,
In our study, “The World That Was, The First Earth Age” you will discover it was Satan who was removed from his position in our Father’s Kingdom. You can read more about this great fall in another Bible study titled, “Satan’s Sin“. I highly encourage you to read both studies in order to gain the Biblical knowledge required in order to understand these Biblical concepts.
This study will also help you understand “the foundation of the world” that you asked about. The foundation of the world would be the very beginning of creation which occurred during The First Earth Age.
Read the study and if you still have questions let me know David.
Question: Thank you for this site and all your good works! I have a question concerning Cain. Starting in Genesis 4. It describes Cain murdering Abel, being cursed, and going to Nod and having offspring. It doesn’t say when he died.
My question is: Jesus is God’s son sent to earth to die for our sins. Would Cain then be Satan born to woman? Second question/building off the first: Did Cain die? Thank you so much for any help you can give me regarding this!
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Roxannean and you are very welcome! More importantly we thank our Father.
You are correct, there is no scriptural documentation of Cain’s death so we cannot say when he died. Unfortunately, but inline with our Father’s Plan we know Cain had children, they are known in the Bible as “kenites“. “Kenites” is Strong’s word 7017 which means,
“a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin“
What tribe is “Kajin“?
To answer that question we need to look up the base of the word 7017, its root which is Strong’s word 7014 which means,
Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe: – Cain, Kenite“
The first child from Eve was Cain and we can even see that documented here as well. So someone mentioned in the Bible being a “kenite” is a son of Cain who was the son of Satan. I realize this is not commonly taught in the churches of today, but that does not excuse the fact that is it true and we all need to put forward our due diligence in studying the Bible. I will leave a link below to entirely document this for you if you are not already aware.
Did Cain die?
Yes. While we cannot document it in the Bible Cain was of Eve as we documented in our Bible study, “The Garden of Eden: The Origins of Satan’s Seed“. This means he was a man of flesh and blood like we are and we all die, so Cain did as well. He probably lived to a ripe ol age though.
Cain was not Satan. As Jesus was the Son of God, Cain was the son of Satan.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience. If you would like to ask a question submit it for the next edition of this post and continue the discussion by leaving a comment below.
