Genesis 4:4 (c) He is a type of the true believer in regard to salvation. He felt his guilt, he realized his insufficiency to pay the price. He obtained an innocent lamb. He offered this lamb as a sacrifice, killing it and burning it upon the altar whereby he proved his faith in the animal who died for him, and shed his blood for him. This is the path the true believer takes today.

As a sinner he feels his need as Abel did. He goes to the innocent and holy Lamb of GOD, JESUS CHRIST, by faith. He kneels a suppliant for mercy at Calvary, where the blood was shed. He believes the Word of GOD that the "blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, c1eanseth us from all sin," 1 John 1:7. He trusts his soul and life to the living Lamb on the Throne of GOD who makes the death of Calvary and the shed blood effective for the one who believes.
