Blood speaks. Blood cries. Blood always seeks for vengeance. The blood does not rest or die immediately somebody is killed. It continues to cry and seek for retaliation until there is an adequate recompense. Look at when Cain killed Abel. Abel’s sacrifice was accepted and Cain’s rejected by so Cain out of envy lured him out and murdered him. Though nobody was there, but Abel’s blood kept crying for vengeance until heaven responded. Just listen, “Then the Lord said to Cain, ‘where is Abel your brother?’ He said, ‘I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’ And he said. ‘What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” Genesis 4:9-10. Wow! Did you see that? Blood also has voice. Though Abel has been murdered, but his blood was still crying to God from the ground. And what do you think it was saying?
Of course it was seeking for vengeance and retribution. Nobody was there with them, but the spilled blood restlessly connected to the maker immediately. The blood of an innocent man/woman does not die at the point of death. It also does not rest until justice is done. It continues to call for vengeance. It continues to scream restlessly until justice is done and unfortunately it can go generational. Now, how did God react when he heard the blood cry? He issued severe curses on Cain the murderer.
Like we have said terrible curses follow those who spill innocent blood. Curses run after those who directly or remotely cause or instigate other people’s death or fall. When you deliberately act or refuse to act and it results in people’s death or suffering you must pay for it. When you victimise people or take part in decisions that results in others suffering you sure will receive divine punishment. What did God do when he came? He cursed Cain and also cursed the ground. Listen again, “So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on earth.” My God! Did you hear that? When you spill blood, when you victimise others, when you hurt an innocent person you immediately attract the curse of wandering, restlessness and unproductively to yourself, your family and the environment. Yes, for now it may look as if the person is progressing, but watch his end. Watch her children.
Go close and see what is happening or will happen to them. The heaven will remain angry with them. Their earth will also be polluted and charged against them - trouble, wandering, disappointment, vagabond spirit, strange sickness, persistent urge to commit suicide, walking out of God’s grace and presence, wasteful life, indecency and other inexplicable things – happening around them. Look at your life and your family. Are all these happening? God told Cain that his brother’s blood was crying from the ground that received it. What injustice is crying against you today??
We must be careful of what we do in this life. The word of God says that whatever a man sows that he must reap. It is a standing, settled divine law. You cannot change it. If you are not already reaping it now, it will surely come. God sees everything. Nothing is hidden from him. He saw you when you conceive that evil plot, he watched you planning for it and he clearly knew how and when you executed it. You may hide it from men, but not from God. Cain secretly victimised and killed Abel because of envy and God openly paid him back with heavy and terrible curses. Maybe it is time for you to look inwards and know why you and yours are going through those strange things.
Don’t get involved in eliminating an innocent person. Don’t initiate or involve in planning against others. If you do the curse of Cain will SURELY rest upon you and your household. Heaven and earth will begin to speak against you, against your children, descendants and against your land for generations. It is not worth it. Watch out for the next part of the article. God bless!
