MEMORY VERSE:

And He said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.– Genesis 4:10

TEXT: DEUTERONOMY 21:1-9

1 If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who hath slain him:

2 Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that is slain:

3 And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not been wrought with, and which hath not drawn in the yoke;

4 And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall strike off the heifer’s neck there in the valley:

5 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto Him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried:

6 And all the elders of that city, that are next unto the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:

7 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it.

8 Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom Thou hast redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto Thy people of Israel’s charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them.

9 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.

How seriously do we take the vengeance of God?

Romans 12:19 says “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord”.

Also Deuteronomy 32:35 says “To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste”.

We are not to avenge ourselves. If someone murders another, as Cain did, God promises to “require a reckoning for” the blood of the slain (Genesis 9:5).

God cares a lot about avenging the innocent. Also Revelation 6:9-11 gives us another cry for vengeance from the blood of innocent martyrs.

Their blood is depicted as crying out to God in the same way as Abel´s did.

CAN A BLOOD SPEAK OR CRY OUT?

Yes, the blood speaks! It speaks in the spiritual. Since God is a Spirit, He does not only hear their voices, He also knows and sees the details of such blood, how they died, who killed them, reasons behind such killings etc..

Blood speaks, though inaudible in the physical world; yet so loud that God hears and sees it all. There is the voice of blood – Genesis 4:10

SCRIPTURAL EVIDENCES:

1. Genesis 4:10 says “And He said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground”.

2. God rejected David´s request to build Him a house on the ground that as a soldier, he had shed too much blood. “But God said unto me, Thou shalt not build an house for my name, because thou hast been a man of war, and hast shed blood”. – 1 Chronicles 28:3. God eventually settled for Solomon to build the house.

And He said unto me, Solomon Thy son, he shall build My house and My courts: for I have chosen him to be My son, and I will be his father”. – 1 Chronicles 28:6

3. King Ahab and Naboth: “And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession?

And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine” – 1 Kings 21:19

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN JESUS´ BLOOD AND ABEL´S BLOOD

– While Abel´s blood was crying for justice from God, Jesus´ blood was pleading for forgiveness for our sins that men might be reconciled back to God.

– Abel´s blood cry brought the curse to the entire generation of Cain, but Jesus´ blood helps mankind until today to get saved and to enter into heaven.

– Abel´s blood cried unto God from the land, but Jesus sprinkles His blood from above to all men, who ask for it. His blood sacrifice “speaks better things than that of Abel”.

CONCLUSION:

The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, speaks of the blood of the slain crying out to God for vengeance.

It speaks of the innocent blood polluting the ground on which that blood is shed.

It speaks also of God, who promises to repay the blood of the innocent on the hands of the murderers, even to hold the jurisdiction of murders responsible if they do not atone for the blood of the slain found in their territory.

Since God cares so much about atoning for the righteous blood of innocent victims, we ought to care greatly about the issue as well.
