Issues on the Doorstep

(KG) Cain didn’t recognize the threat on his porch until God told him, “Cain, Sin is crouching at your door.” God was not saying, “You have a ticket to hell on the porch, PorchStepsBoy.” God wasn’t writing him off. He was warning Cain that he had a personal issue on his doorstep that would trip him up. It was a behavior pattern of messing up and then being offended about it. That thing would crouch on his porch and dictate his life if he didn’t master it.   Cain had a call to repentance, a call to think differently and change so that he could overcome a contradiction before it overcame him, but he didn’t and it did.   Cain’s thinking did not change and the contradicting behavior pattern of offense and anger drove him into a rage and he killed his brother.
