Cain, having negative volition offered not what was of the blood (pointing to the cross) but what was of the ground, which pointed to man’s work.

God is not interested in what you do, all you do, etc., but the nature of your standing in accuracy in His truth.

God wants us, Cain in this case, to adjust to His perfect righteousness so that His perfect will be done.

Attitude is everything!

Once self is set up as god, we are no longer oriented to Him

Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

The flood is a type of the cross.

The the ark spoke of the Person of Christ.

He who was made sin on our behalf destroyed the power of sin by taking it down into death.

One died for all therefore all died, 2CO 5:14; COL 3:3. Our self-life has been crucified, ROM 6:6.

The Greek word for ark in is kibotow, which means a treasure chest or a wooden ship that was constructed of gopher wood used because of its light weight and tough exterior.

This wood represented the humanity of Christ. The analogy here is, Jesus Christ is the ark and the treasure chest,

COL 2:3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Construction of the ark — the work of Christ.
One set of plans — one Plan of God
One door — one way to adjust to the justice of God
One window — one objective after salvation
Three floors — the three stages of spiritual growth
One place of security in the ark — eternal security

Noah’s family — each believer in union with the person of Christ; delivered from the lake of fire.
Outside the ark — unbelievers

In the subject of typology, Mount Moriah points to Calvary as Abraham was called to sacrifice his only son.

The sacrifice on the mountain was to take place between the father and the son only, just as the substitutionary spiritual death took place in private between the Father and the Son.

Isaac carried the wood representing the humanity of Christ and Abraham carried the knife and the fire, representing the tools needed to execute the judgment of an innocent sacrifice.

God alone will supply that which will satisfy Himself.
Man can do nothing to meet the divine requirements of God.

The central figure in the Passover was a lamb without blemish.

The lamb was killed not just to be looked upon but fed upon, just as we are to feed upon our sacrificial Lamb, Jesus Christ.

The cross of Christ is a place where members of the human race are divided into believers and unbelievers, winner believers and loser believers.

Our job as Christians is not to clean up the world or produce works of the flesh, but to understand the main theme throughout the Bible…the Cross.

There is only One Person who trusted in God who was forsaken and that was Jesus Christ as our substitutionary sacrifice.

If man remains in bondage to Satan’s ways thereafter, it’s because he chooses to do so.

PHI 2:10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth

Colossians 2:9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form.

Jesus Christ did not appease the wrath of an angry God, He satisfied the perfect justice of a holy and loving God.
