"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel" (Gen 3:15).
Every Christian minister quotes this verse and tells you that "her seed" here refers absolutely and undeniably to Jesus Christ. Yes, the seed of the woman Eve, sired by her husband Adam, eventually brought forth Seth, after Abels death, through whom the Christ child came. In Him alone the "word was made flesh" (John 1:14). Praise God!
We have all heard this great story. We know it well. We understand it, believe it and affirm it. God was made flesh, the ultimate issue from "her seed," of Genesis 3:15. Yes, this verse is fulfilled in a flesh and blood human being called Emmanuel, the Saviour, Jesus Christ, who lived and breathed and walked and taught among his disciples on earth. He was a real man, not a wimpy, wispy little spiritualized weakling. Jesus Christ took on a flesh and blood body just like yours and mine. He laughed and cried. He hungered, became weary and suffered pain. No real Christian doubts it. It is not a point of controversy among Bible believers. It is as sure and real as peanut butter and apple pie. Jesus was, yes, fully God, but He was also, yes, a fully flesh and blood man, hallelujah! But what does this have to do with Two Seeds?
Knowing and affirming Christs manhood, descended from "her seed," look now at the other half of that verse"thy seed." God is speaking to the Serpent when He states, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed" (Gen 3:15). You already know the woman has "seed." But did you know that the Serpent also has "seed," according to the Bible? Who are these "seed"? If Jesus Christ came through the line of "her seed," where on earth is the line of "thy seed" or the Serpents seed? If you could find one of these "seed," could you talk to him? What would he look like? Would he be a spirit or would he be flesh and blood? And just who is the Serpent, formerly known as Lucifer? For surely, he was no snake crawling through the grass! He was able to persuade, fully deceive, stir the passions of and seduce our mother Eve.
Wherever these two "seeds" are found together, historically, there will be a natural "enmity" or animosity felt between them. There will also be a mutual bruising of the "head" of one, and the "heel" of the other. We know that "her seed," descended from Eve through Abels brother Seth, was enlarged through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and later culminated in the race of Israel and in our saviour Jesus Christ. There was a whole lineage of "her seed," all physical flesh and blood men, who brought forth the Christ child. The laws of Biblical interpretation also require that there be a corresponding physical seed from the other side of that same verse"thy [the serpents] seed"also must be flesh and blood. "Thy seed" and "her seed." If we know the one, and clearly understand the one, we can also discover and clearly understand the other. Yes, we can, if we will read and believe the Bible.
The amazing revelation concerning "thy seed," or the Serpents seed, is uncovered clearly in the words of Jesus Christ Himself, who stated to a certain group of Pharisees: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do" (John 8:44). The phrase "Ye are of your father the devil" means offspring in a literal, physical sense. Check the Greek words, if you doubt it.
"Of your father the devil." "Of your father the devil." Here Jesus is talking with some flesh and blood people who are "of your father the devil." But you say, "Thats impossible! How could the devil be a literal father, like Adam was a father? He is not even human." True, but did you know that certain angels called "sons of God" once cohabited and reproduced with women? Yes the Bible says "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose" (Gen. 6:2).
Who are these "sons of God?" We find the answer in Job: "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them" (Job 1:6). Here, "Satan" is listed as one of the angelic "sons of God."
Back in Genesis 6, is the record of "the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation" (Jude 6). From these out of kind unions came some humanoids called "giants in the earth in those days" (Gen 6:4). This is the source of giants such as Goliath whom David killed. Not all progeny were giants, but some were. Some even "had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number" (2Sam. 21:20). Have you ever seen that?
Two more verses will document that the Serpent of the garden, the devil, and Satan are all one and the same being, originally named Lucifer.
The Bible tells us: "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (Rev. 12:9). "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years" (Rev. 20:2)."That old serpent, called the Devil" is none other than the one who showed up in the garden and talked with the woman Eve. She was eventually thoroughly "deceived," or, as we say, "taken in" (1Tim. 2:14). The devil, called the Serpent, became the original father to a seedline that produced those counterfeit Pharisees Jesus was speaking to when he said, "Ye are of your father the devil." Families tend to be loyal to their father, and these Pharisees were no exception.
Notice: "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? (Gen 3:1).
"And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden" (v. 2).
"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die" (v. 3).
"And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die" (v. 4). Here is the first RSV Bible, written by Satan the devil, to deceive our mother Eve.
"For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (v. 5).
"And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat" (v. 6).
"And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons" (v. 7). Their discovery of nakedness is another clue indicating what happened in the garden that day. Eve was deceived or seducedtaken inby that charming Serpent. Oh was he so, so nice! Or she felt he was so nice, until he used her, accomplished his agenda by abusing her, and then abandoned her. That is Satans agenda, then and now. Adam and Eve had been naked in innocence all along, but now, after the seduction, their nakedness exposed their guilt and they were ashamed. So they covered their nakedness and hid from God.
Now if this seduction really took place, and if it resulted in a pregnancy and a seedline fathered by the Serpent, that showed up later in Jesus day among the Pharisees who were "of your father the devil," there must be more evidence than this. Right? Yes there is; stay on board for the most seemingly incredible yet true Bible story you ever heard.
Now lets get it straight. While the Serpent had conversation with Eve, where was Adam? He was nowhere around. In the New Testament parable of the wheat and tares, we learn that good seed were sown in the field called the world. But, surprisingly, when the tender wheat came up and headed out, there also came up tares: "But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat" (Mat 13:25). Adam was asleep while the Serpent beguiled Eve.
Further, when Jesus explained this parable, He said: "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one" (Mat 13:37-38). Children are offspring, called tares"children of the wicked one" Now who is that "wicked one?" Why, of course, he is none other than the devil, Satan, the very Serpent in the garden who seduced Eve. Isnt that interesting? He that hath ears to hear, let him hear!
Now look at exactly what happened next:
"And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
"And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground" (Gen 4:1-2).
Notice carefully. The Serpent talked to Eve, and gave her the first RSV Bible translation. That first Romeo beguiled her, that is, he stirred her passions and seduced her. She and her husband Adam then covered their nakedness with fig leaves. If it were a forbidden apple or peach or pear or other fruit of that nature that they had eaten, dont you think they would have covered their mouths? Instead, "they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons" (Gen. 3:7). Whatever took place was definitely of a moral, sexual nature, because afterwards they covered up their nakedness.
In the briefest manner, the Bible tells us the explicit result. Look carefully at verses 1 and 2 of Genesis 4, and you will see that Adam cohabited with Eve after she ate the fruit of the Serpent. The result was a set of twins from two different fathers. Cain was born first and Eve exclaimed: "I have gotten a man from the LORD!" Eve had been so deceived and beguiled by the Serpent, that she actually thought she had cohabited with "the LORD." She then "bare again," or continued in labor, and bore Cains half brother, Abel, the son of Adam. Two babies, two fathers, one mother. Is that possible?
Paternal twins from two different fathers are rare, but have been recorded in at least one case since World War II. A Caucasian service man and his Caucasian wife were stationed in Germany. Twins were conceived, and later the white woman gave birth to two babies, one white and one black. The husband sued for divorce, and the mother admitted under pressure that she had slept with a black man as well as her husband.
This is exactly what Eve had done, only it was not a man, it was the Serpent, who fathered an evil, wicked seedline in the earth that Jesus called "tares," or "children of that wicked one." What are tares? Have you ever seen tares growing?
My father was a common Texas farmer and livestock man. He talked of a plant that he called "cheat." It would sometimes come up amidst the wheat, and look quite similar to wheat, but it would produce no wheat at all. I remember walking in the pasture one day when my father pointed out some "cheat." This is what the Bible calls "tares," which grow like wheat, until the final stage. When the wheat plants are heading out into long, golden heads of grain, the tares shoot up and make a tiny, black, poisonous seed which is good for nothing. It cannot be made into bread, and it is poison to livestock. Tares among the wheat are a dangerous combination, any old farmer knows.
And that is exactly what the Serpent, called the enemy, sowed that day in the Garden. He sowed his tares among the wheat, and "Cain, who was of that wicked one" (1John 3:12) was born to a beguiled Eve. She thought she had slept with God. This idea is the foundation of many pagan religions, whose women must first sleep with the priest before going home to their husband! The good seed, the children of God, descended through Cains half brother Seth who was born after Abel was murdered. Adam was the father of Abel and Seth. The Serpent was the father of Cain, who founded the way of corruption in the earth. Eve was the mother of both. Notice in the New Testament that John tells us it was "Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother" (1John 3:12). Yes, Cain issued forth from the Serpent, forming a line of "thy seed" from the left side of Genesis 3:15. The most amazing story on earth is found right in your Bible!
You say, all right, but show me more evidence. OK, the Bible says:
"Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee" (Rev 3:9).
The synagogue of Satan "which say they are Jews," today is mostly made up of the descendants of Cain. Arthur Koestler, a Jewish historian with no religious axe to grind, states that modern Jews "genetically. . . are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." (The Thirteenth Tribe, Arthur Koestler, Random House, Inc., NY, 1976, p. 17). So today you have a race of people, who say they are Gods chosen people, and look somewhat similar to Caucasian Christians. Remember, it was Eve who on the birth of Cain exclaimed, "I have gotten a man from the LORD." However, the children of Cain are not the right genetics. These are not of God, but of the devil. Jesus is our bread from heaven, but the seed of the tares are poison and can make no bread. They cannot hear the words of Jesus, our bread from heaven. Of these wicked ones, Jesus declared: "ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep" (John 10:26).
They do not descend from "her seed," but from "thy seed" of Genesis 3:15. The unlawful, out of kind seed of the Serpent has continued to grow among the wheat of God, all the way down through history. This is the usurer race. This is the merchandising race. This is the race that corrupts music. This is the cheating race that lives by a vile book called the Talmud. This race has inflamed hatred and enmity with "her seed" of Adams race since that eventful day in the Garden. This race was at various times kicked out en masse from the major nations across Europe, for good reason.
The great reformer Martin Luther spoke of these counterfeits, exposing them in his book, "The Jews and Their Lies." John Calvin repudiated them. The Bible refers to the wheat and tares growing along side each other at the time of Christs return when: "both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn" (Matt. 13:30). Who are these "tares," assigned to the angels, who will "bind them in bundles to burn them?" These are the descendants of the antiChrist "thy seed," who sprang from the left side of Genesis 3:15. These are none other than they that "say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" (Rev. 2:9). Which people go to synagogue? Which people hate Jesus Christ with unholy passion? Not the Moslems, who revere Jesus as a great prophet. Not the Buddhists, who claim He was a great teacher. Not any other religion of the world. Only the Jews hate Him with utter repudiation. In their "holy book" the Talmud, He is condemned to boil in excrement for all eternity! Such is the religion of the wicked descendants of "thy seed," which we would expect would come from their "father the devil" (John 8:44).
Two Seeds. One from God. One from the devil. Wheat and "cheat," the good seed and the tares. Now you know who they are. Now you know the difference. And you learned it from none other source than your King James Bible, praise God!
