1. In Part One of this series, we discussed visible and invisible WORLDS, FIRMAMENT, TIME and triple NATURE of man. In Part Two, we focus on Garden of EDEN, SIN, DEATH, the SEED of Adam and SEED of the serpent. The Bible says: “And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed” [Genesis 2:8] Two trees stood out in the Garden, namely: “…the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil” [Genesis 2:9] When the fruits were ready, Satan showed up, behold it was the TREE OF LIFE transplanted from heaven, of which the Bible says: “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” [Revelation 22:2] Satan, knew his access to the FRUIT of the TREE was revoked and was bent doing same to man. God, knowing his intention, God gave His WORD as armour against the adversary and warned Adam, saying: “But of the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” [Genesis 2:17] The only shield that could stop the fiery darts of the adversary was the WORD, but there was loop hole; man’s WILL.
2. Eve, Adam’s wife, her weakness when she put the WORD of God to debate, saying: “…We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 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” [Genesis 3:2-3] Satan “is a liar, and the father of it” [John 8:44] When he said to Eve, “YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE”, he seduced her with LIE and “IMPREGNATED” her with SIN. Sin is more than an act; it is the life form of Satan typified by rebellion against God. Sin is the image and true representation of Satan. In man, sin is a state of mind not necessarily an act, as it is written:: “…whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” [Matthew 5:28] As soon as Eve stepped out of the Word of God, the account of sin was opened on earth. SIN made Eve eat the fruit not the other way, and . By deception, the seed of satanic life form was embedded in man through her. But Adam was not deceived, as the Bible says: “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression” [1Timothy 2:14] Henceforth, there were two nations on earth. One, born of the SEED of Adam, “… which was the son of God” [Luke 3:38] Two, the nation of Satan, born in SIN embedded in the woman.
3. Another name for Satan is DEATH and his end is DESTRUCTION in the lake of fire, as it is written: “And the DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10] Let me put it this way, Satan, SIN and DEATH are the same thing in different forms. SIN is the SEED, DEATH is FRUIT and Satan is the TREE. With the EVIL SEED passed to man through Eve, everyone born of woman is condemned to DEATH. Our enemy hides under the mask of DEATH to hunt and haunt men into cruel bondage. All praise to God, manifest in Jesus Christ, who; “…also himself likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS, THE DEVIL; deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” [Hebrews 2:14-15] In Jesus Christ we are delivered from SIN and DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE through FAITH in His DEATH as atonement for our SIN, as it is written: “…The just shall live by faith” [Romans 1:17] Those who live in perpetual FEAR OF DEATH confirm that they are slaves to SIN. I assure you, if any man is in Christ, he has passed from DEATH to EVERLASTING LIFE. Thus, says the Lord: “… I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” [John 11:25]
4. Satan sowed his SEED in Eden, using the SERPENT. This SERPENT was not a snake as some imagine, but one of humanoid creatures mentioned in Part One of this series. It is evident the creature was upright and not a creepy crawly until God cursed it, as it is written: “And the LORD God said unto the SERPENT, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; UPON THY BELLY SHALT THOU GO, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life” [Genesis 3:14] The tag, SERPENT, was derived from the spirit behind the mask, that is, Satan who is also known as DRAGON, SERPENT and DEVIL [Revelation 12:9] Listen carefully, God said to the SERPENT: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between THY SEED seed and HER SEED; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15] So then, we have THY SEED, that is, the SERPENT’S SEED and HER SEED, that is, the SEED that shall come out of the woman. Before we go further, let me remind you, the female gender has no SEED but man. In any case, “…ADAM KNEW HIS EVE HIS WIFESHE ; and SHE CONCEIVED, AND BARE CAIN, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And SHE AGAIN BARE HIS BROTHER ABEL…” [Genesis 4:1-2] Please take note, the Bible recorded one “KNOWING”, ONE CONCEPTION, but TWO BOYS, who were not twins! Scripture confirms Cain as the image and likeness of the SERPENT, and Abel, the son of Adam. Cain was the SERPENT’S SEED, “… WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE, and slew his brother…” [1 John 3:12] After Cain killed Abel, God replenished the stock of Adam with a son after his own LIKENESS, as it is written: “And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and BEGAT A SON IN HIS OWN LIKENESS, AFTER HIS IMAGE” [Genesis 5:3]
5. The present world is a battle field between the sons of God and SERPENT’S SEED. It is the nature of SERPENT’S SEED, in every age, to persecute and kill the sons of God as Cain did. At the appointed time, prophecy was fulfilled, as it is written: “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” [Genesis 3:15] As aforesaid, the woman has no SEED in her, but in this case conceived of the WORD and Jesus Christ was born, as it is written: “And the WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us…” [John 1:14] Jesus Christ was in every sense a man and being born of woman and God, for “… in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] Those who receive Jesus Christ in fulfilment of prophecy, as God manifest in flesh are BORN OF GOD and “… whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” [1John 5:4] I warn those who care to listen, the Lord shall return very soon and shall send His angels to “… sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” [Matthew 13:49-50] I encourage you to receive Jesus Christ today as your LORD and Saviout and be BORN OF GOD, amen.
