Pt.3 Some Serpent seed refutes
James 3:9 states: “therewith we bless God, even the Father; and therewith we curse men, which are made after the similitude of God.” The Bible includes all men being made in God’s image. That includes Cain. Genesis 1:26-27; I Cor. 15:45, all men are created by God in God’s image, not just some men and others are created in the Serpents image. Sin was passed from Adam to all mankind.
1 John 3:7-10 “tells us those who do not practice righteousness, who are born of God (not of the fallen Adamic seed) who do not practice sin, are not the children of the Devil.” And those who formerly practiced sin can be saved.
William Branham said “I think that Cain was the son of Satan. I know you disagree with that; my own church does. But that's still... Till God shows me different, I--I believe the same thing (See?), that he was the son of Satan. (Questions and Answers. Jefferson In 54-0103M). Even his own church was not behind him on this
Nothing new to see here, Irenaeus in his “Against Heresies on the Gnostics writes that they taught: “since the father was incorruptible, he (Ialdabaoth) who formerly called himself the father was a liar; and that, while Anthropos and the first woman (the Spirit) existed previously, this one (Eve) sinned by committing adultery”
“going back to 1 John 3:10, read the Greek word for “children” from the Strong’s Concordance and E.W. Bullinger’s Appendix 108 for further proof that Christ is speaking of the actual bloodline of Satan’s son, Cain.] Genesis - Lecture 5 (transcript) - Arnold Murray Wednesday, August 5, 2009 http://donnettebower.multiply.com/journal/item/1148
So when we read I Jn. 3:12: "not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous."
The Serpent seed promoters think this is validation for this doctrine. But it says His works were evil, not that he is evil, offspring of the Devil. Cain brought his own sacrifice and was rejected because it could not do what God required. In other words, he acted in sin (the Devils nature), he became angry and then killed his own brother (Gen.4:8). But they see Cain literally being the Devils offspring, which is what made him do this. We are told that the serpent seed (Cain) cannot be saved because it is the offspring of the Devil (some even say the Nephillim). In fact grace was still available for Cain. If Cain were of the actual seed of the Serpent, a child of the devil, then why did God appeal to him to “master sin” and assured him Gen. 4:7 "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." Hardly something God would say to a seed of Satan.
The word for sin in its first time mention is chatta'ah - an offence (sometimes habitual sinfulness), and its penalty, occasion, sacrifice, or expiation; also (concretely) an offender. God wanted Cain to do what is right unlike those who have condemned him as the serpent seed.
As the Devil worked with Cain he still works in people today. Eph. 2:2 “the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” Every time the human will exercises itself against God, sin is in operation. It is in our heart constantly but it brings it fruit when acted upon. In fact the Bible says “the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (I Jn. 5:19).
They also believe the curse of Cain is in the bloodline. Many want to find the antichrist through the bloodline from Genesis. All humanity has a sin nature, not just descendants of Cain. All are sinners; that is what the serpent brought through the transgression of Adam and Eve. It was spiritual degradation in the nature of man, not physical; it affected the physical in death but severed both Adam and Eve's relationship because of their disobeying the command of not to eat the fruit from that certain tree, which was sin.
Did Cain inherit only Serpents spiritual nature but not the physical? They are speaking literally of a distinct seedline (species) of physical beings upon this earth that are existing today who are called "children of Satan," human, but also part fallen angel. A Satanic "hybrid" species that survived the flood? They claim the flood did not cover the entire earth and that the Bible is incorrect, and more than the 8 of Noah’s family survived. It seems everything they state to try and prove this teaching goes outside the word of God.
Adam charged God with the influence; it’s the woman that He gave him. Genesis 3:10-13 of the two, Adam was the greater sinner, for he deliberately partook of the forbidden fruit. This would not be possible id Eve actually did what they claim.
According to Arnold Murray, the Kenites survived the flood (he denies the global flood) and are found in the lineage of Israel, not Judah, (Newsletter #179, Sept. 1993). He goes on to say, the Kenites permeated the nation of Israel and are the ones who shouted "Crucify Him," in reference to Jesus (ibid.).
Kabbalah teaching ... the members of the mixed multitude
are the children of the primordial serpent that seduced Chavah (Eve) by the tree
of knowledge, so the mixed multitude is indeed the impurity that the serpent
injected into Chavah.
The Bible teaches of a worldwide flood in the days of Noah, any so called serpent seed offspring died in the flood, and have no descendants on earth today. Verses 21-23 “And all flesh died that moved upon the face of the earth” Whatever was not in the ark did not survive. So they make up a story without ever proving it from the Bible. And it escalates from Genesis all through the Bible, as they play pin the tail on Cain’s offspring.
verse 44 of the book of St. John. Now this is where “certain” [persons living within Judea], that called themselves, “Judahs”, [and] called themselves of our brother Judah, but they were lying because they were of Cain. Listen carefully where Jesus, Himself, nails them: John 8:44 Ye are of [your] father the devil”(Genesis, Lecture 5 (transcript), Pastor Arnold Murray Wednesday, August 5, 2009) http://donnettebower.multiply.com/journal/item/1148
Serpent seed teachers will often refer to Jn.8:44 to try to show that certain Jews are a “serpent seed” descendents because Christ said: “you are of your father the devil.” John 8:31-59 Jesus in discussion with Jews who believed on Him said that they were “Abraham’s seed.” Jesus v. 37: “I know that you are Abraham’s seed.” Yet Jesus also tells these same Jews in verse 44 that: “ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. Verses 37 and 56 Jesus acknowledged these Jews were from the physical lineage of Abraham, yet he was. referring to their spiritual condition as being of Satan. In the same way he rebuked Peter when hew spoke incorrectly in Mt.16 and said get behind me Satan.
Branham went further and denied Jesus was of Jewish lineage because his blood was supernaturally made.
“Jesus was God, not a Jew. … And He was not no man, Jew or Gentile, He was God created in flesh. We're not saved by the blood of a Jew or blood of a Gentile, we're saved by the Blood of God. He was God, nothing less. He wasn't Jew nor Gentile. (63-1214, Why Little Bethlehem, Ramada Inn, Phoenix, AZ)
“ So the virgin birth, the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary, therefore, Jesus was not a Jew. Jesus was not a Gentile. Jesus was God, exactly. His Blood didn't come from any sex act. He was the holy created Blood of God. And we're not saved by Jewish blood, neither are we saved by Gentile blood.” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p.88)
Christ being the “Son of David is found all through Scripture (Matthew 9:27;12:23; 21:9;John 7:42). Matthew 1:1 begins with “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:” and in v.31-32 ‘the son of Nathan, the son of David, the son of Jesse, the son of Obed.’
Heb. 7:14 “For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah” Rev. 5:5 “Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David.” Jesus himself says, “I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star” (Rev.22:16-17)
Gen. 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” ALL can be blessed in Jesus Christ, but those who say to Israel a curse, who deny the Messiahs lineage, will be cursed themselves.
The Book of Jude speaks of false teachers who had "gone the way of Cain." (v. 11) These is those who bring their own teaching that is not founded in the word; in the same way Cain offered up what he thought would be best from his human ability.
