The Sons of Cain
This study  written by Maurice Wright

In this study of the ‘Sons of Cain,’ it will be documented in the scripture that the Kenite people of the house of Re’-chab are the direct descendants of their wretched ancestor, Cain. The children of Cain’s survival after the flood is very easy to document in God’s word. So, without further ado, let’s go directly to the scripture and let God’s Word prove this truth. (For further documentation read my study, ‘Satan’s Impregnation Of Eve.’

‘Kenite’ in Hebrew means, "a member of the tribe of Kajin." (Strong’s #7017)

‘Kajin’ in Hebrew means, "the name of the first child: Cain." (Strong’s #7014)

The Jewish Encyclopedia :

Critical View: According to biblical data, the Kenites were a nomadic clan which settled on the southern border of Judah, originally more advanced in arts than the Hebrew, and from whom the latter learned much. In the time of David, the Kenites were finally incorporated into the tribes of Judah. Their eponymous ancestor was Cain to those descendants in Genesis 4:21-22. Attributes: the invention of the arts of working bronze and iron, and the use of instruments of music, etc. [Ktav Publishing House, Inc. Volume #7]

1 Chronicles 2:55-And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Ja’-bez; the Ti’-rathites, the Shim’-eath-ites, and Su’-chath-ites. These are the Ken’-ites that came of He’-math, the father of the house of Re’-chab.

The word ‘scribes’ defined by the Nelson Illustrated Bible Dictionary means, "members of a learned class in ancient Israel through New Testament times who studied the Scriptures and served as copyists, editors, and teachers."

The Kenites, in their effort to pollute the truth, have infiltrated the very foundation of Christianity by becoming editors and teachers of the Holy Scriptures. Their aim from the beginning, was to use that privilege to conceal their true identity among God’s children. The Kenites attempted this deception many times in the scripture. One place in particular was when they pretended to be the descendants of the prophet Jeremiah. I wonder how many Christians actually know this?

Jeremiah 35:1-2-The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.

The verse above gives us the true Jeremiah, the verse below give us the false Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 35:3-Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites.

Here, we are told that Jaazaniah of the house of Re’-chab was the son of the prophet Jeremiah and that Habaziniah was Jeremiah’s father. By following the progeny of the true Jeremiah, we can exclude the false Jeremiah because, according to scripture, the prophet Jeremiah never had any children and his father’s name was Hil-kiah not Habaziniah (Jeremiah 1:1).

Jeremiah 35:5-6-And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever.
