False Teaching Exposed: Serpent Seed Doctrine

A photo of the false teaching: Serpent Seed

It has come to my attention that this evil doctrine titled, “serpent seed” is followed by many, and taught by false prophets/teachers. Let’s take a look at how this lie came to be.

1. What is the serpent seed doctrine? This horrific teaching teaches that Eve had sexual intercourse with Satan (the serpent) and that is how Eve bore Cain. William Branham taught that the fall of mankind started with this alleged coupling, and that Cain was a fertile man/serpent hybrid. Daniel Parker, Arnold Murray are false teachers who agree with this doctrine.

My Comment: This has got to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, and trust me I’ve heard a lot. It is a devilish lie, used to confuse those that would believe in such a thing. The Word of God says in

Genesis 4: Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man.” Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.

2. The serpent seed doctrine teaches that Eve claimed she was “seduced” by the serpent/devil.

My Comment: In studying what William Branham lied about, and he has lied/twisted the Word of God immensely, the seduced angle clearly goes against God’s Word.

Genesis 3:13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

What does deceive mean? To conceal the truth. So Satan deceived Eve, into eating the apple. He hid the truth from her, NOT seduced her.

3. Actual quote: William Branham stated, “What did he do? He begin making love to Eve. And he lived with her as a husband. And she saw it was pleasant, so she went and told her husband; but she was already pregnant by Satan. And she brought forth her first son whose name was Cain, the son of Satan.”

4. Actual Branham quote #2: “And if the serpent’s seed was spiritual, then Jesus was not a man, so the woman’s Seed was spiritual. They both had seeds, and the enmity is still there. The serpent had a seed. And if you’ll just take your Bible and get down and be real reverent before God, I believe God will reveal it to you.”

My comment: NO WHERE in the Word of God is there scripture supporting this. NO WHERE. It is a complete baseless lie taught by Branham and his followers.  

2 Peter 2:1-3 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

My comment: On a personal note, the word of God is the complete truth, always has been. If someone comes up to you with what is not in the Word of God, defend the truth, and rebuke the lies of the devil.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.

My comment: We are close to our King’s Coming than ever before, and doctrines taught by demons, will become a common thing. Put on the armor of Jesus Christ, bury yourself in his Word, so that when teachings like these confront you, you can stand against Satan’s ways.

Ephesians 6:10-18 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, …

Edited to further explain those that use God’s word to endorse this lie: serpent seed.

There have been a few who use John 8 versus 31-58 to try to explain the serpent seed as right.

John 8 Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” 34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[b]”
39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would[c] do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

Clarification: Jesus is responding to the Jews, those who hold and believe in him will be set free in Jesus Christ. Those who sin and continue to sin are of (see Jesus saying Abraham’s decendants trying to kill him), those who continue to sin are doing the works of their father.

Who is the father of those who refuse to accept Christ?

John 8:44 answers it beautifully. And it goes onto today, for every sinner who continues to sin, murder, speak evil, lies, and commits atrocities, Jesus says:

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

The father of sin is Satan. Always has been, and will be until Jesus casts him into the lake of fire.

On a last note: John 7:17 If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.

  1. Dear Gloria

    Many of God’s people today are
    not aware of the growing danger
    associated with a particular
    doctrinal heresy commonly called
    the Serpent’s Seed, or Satan’s
    Seed . What is this doctrine, what
    is its history, and why is it relevant
    in any way to the true people of
    God today? You may be astonished
    at the answers to these questions, in the previous post we have prove some of those who believe in this doctrine false teacher who are also racist too

    1. Hi Tiva,

      There for sure is alot of history around it, with people distorting various verses of the Word of God.

      But it also means that the coming of Christ is even nearer, for the Word of God says that this will be more common in the last days.

      1. Gloria

        It is clear in Scriptures but those false teachers continues spreading this blasphemous teaching

        Arnold Murray, Shepherds chapel,
        False teaching, False prophet,
        serpent seed, Kenites, modalism
        “What about teaching Serpent
        Seed? I make no apology for
        teaching the Word of God.”
        The quote above is taken directly
        from Arnold B. Murray’s Answer to
        Critcs.

        Gen 3:15 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.
        Murray teaches that “thy seed”
        refers to Cain (as the son of Satan)
        and “her seed” is Abel. The New
        Testament teaches that Christ is the
        fulfillment of this verse
        (Romans16:20, Hebrews2:14, and
        1John3:8 ) In addition we must
        also consider that this occurred
        before Adam and Eve were kicked
        out of the Garden (see Gen3:24).
        So Murray’s timing is off, Eve did
        not conceive until after they left
        the Garden.
        Gen4:1 And Adam knew Eve his
        wife; and she conceived, and bare
        Cain, and said, I have gotten a man
        from the LORD.
        As the verse above shows it was
        Adam that knew his wife, not
        Satan. And let’s not forget the
        verse tells us the man was from the
        Lord not Satan.
        Nowhere in Scripture does it state
        that Satan had relations with Eve.
        Murray perverts Scripture by
        saying that in 2Cor11:3 beguile
        means that Satan seduced Eve
        sexually.

      1. Convert,

        You and I have talked about Branham before. Now you use James 1:15 to back up the Serpent Seed lie.

        It is true what Ivar said earlier. Do not spend much time in repeating yourself, for people who do not want to repent.

        You have been deceived, Convert and unless you believe God’s word completely, your soul is in danger.

      2. “unless you believe gods word completely your soul is in danger”, you mean, believe it like YOU do. heck, most people dont even understand the bible, much less believe it completely. you have a novice mentality when it comes to the bible. let people study it and come up with their own conclusions. you arent going to “save” anyone, that is not your job.

      3. jimmythesmith,

        You either misinterpret my words or choose to believe what your view/perception of things are. Christ warns us plenty of times not to be deceived by false teachers.

        When I did not have an understanding of what God’s word was, I looked to those who taught it directly as the Lord Christ was saying it. I looked to those who did not use choose to confuse God’s words from “deceived” to “seduced.” And I prayed a lot for understanding through Christ.

        James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

        So when you say let people study it, and come up with there own conclusions, I say ask Jesus.

        And to your last comment, I know perfectly well who Saves, and that is only Jesus. I’m just his daughter his humble servant.

        God Bless

    1. That is very true. I have read up on them these past few days, and they way they used to twist God’s word into their own, the lies they told, well I can only say, we are in the end days. Where false prophets/teachers are more frequent.

    2. MATTHEW 24:27
      27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

      MATTHEW 24:28
      28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together

  2. This as is from the pits of hell….and anyone who believes this filth is no better than those who would vote for a Man who believes and teaches others that Almighty God had sex with a woman and she had 2 sons, one Jesus…the other one…Lucifer…it would be better for man-kind to support the filth of homosexuals, lesbians and all other degenerates than to side with a person who would ”trample the Blood of Jesus Christ”

  3. BEGUILE ,haveing bean translated from the old Jewish language means to deceive or deprive of by fraud thats why there are 14 referances in the Old Testerment useing the meaning deceive and a further 13 referances to” deprive of by fraud”… useing this same word beguile .Some modern dictionarys { not all } when giveing a long list of definitions of this word beguile…,they list the word SEDUCE…,however the word seduce in this contex has its original definition which is to persuade/lead someone to abandon there duty ,and in no way implies our modern understanding of this word…….So here my freinds is how these vain preachers twist GODS WORDS. so they may entice these poor gullible people. .

      1. 61-0101 REVELATION.CHAPTER.FOUR.2_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN ROJC 585-643 SUNDAY_
        30 Oh, how wonderful that a living Father like that, that was from… that’s the very birth of Eternity, that would come down to a mortal beings and help us, and would bring His Word and give It in our mouths and hearts and ears that we might hear It and live, to redeem us from a curse that we had nothing to do with it coming, Father, because it was done by the human race and we’re the offsprings of that–that first couple. “And we’re born in sin, shaped in iniquity.” But a just and living God knows that we had nothing to do with that, but has made a way of escape and give us the privilege of coming. How glad we are we’ve come to Father’s House

      2. We had nothing to do with our natural birth, and we have nothing to do with our spiritual birth “ye are saved by Grace” and sadly not one person here understands because it’s a revelation

      3. JOHN 3:6
        6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

        JOHN 3:7
        7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again

      4. Ever wonder why Jesus came through a virgin without sex. He represented sin and yet there was no sin in Him. He became us in the natural, so we can become Him spiritual, to do away with sin through his own blood.

      5. Convert,

        You said: We had nothing to do with our natural birth, and we have nothing to do with our spiritual birth “ye are saved by Grace” and sadly not one person here understands because it’s a revelation

        My Comment: You lie. If you even suggest that Branham “reveiled” this to us in some supernatural way, THAT IS A LIE.

        For CHRIST JESUS revealed it to us long ago.

        Rom. 3:24, “being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;”

    1. Convert

      The heretics of the Serpent
      Seed Doctrine has misused
      Strong’s Definition on verses
      defining their own false
      claims.
      The word pleasant from the
      Hebrew word ta’avah
      means:
      AV – desire 13, lust 1,
      greedily 1, pleasent 1, misc.
      4; 20
      The word “Lust” is also
      translated from the Hebrew
      word in “desire” is chamad.
      So just ignore that word.
      That “lust” part is just a
      Babylonian perversion of
      God’s Word and those poor
      Serpent Seed heretics have
      fallen for it. Most of all, it’s
      not a physical seed because
      Satan is a spirit and he was
      a morning star named
      Lucifer. He can’t procreate.
      In order to support that
      theory, Satan would have to
      be an extra-terrestrial from
      another planet, say, from
      Mars or Saturn. But hey, I
      don’t believe in some UFO
      fanaticism.
      In verse 12, Eve said the
      serpent beguiled her and ate
      from the tree that God did
      not command her and Adam
      not to eat from it. God
      never said that they should
      not have sex with a tree.
      Adam and Eve before they
      became mortal, they
      couldn’t procreate. They lost
      their immortality after they
      ate the forbidden fruit.
      The Word “Beguile” in
      Hebrew nasha’ means “to
      deceive” not “to have sex
      with”.
      So did Eve bore twins?
      Maybe, but no. It takes at
      least a few years before a
      woman can have a second
      child. Cain, in my
      perspective, he would be at
      least 5 years old.
      Confidentially, L. Ray Smith
      did mention and believe in
      the same Serpent Seed
      Doctrine, but I think this
      false doctrine is hereby
      refuted.
      Brethren, this Serpent Seed
      doctrine and the Kenite
      tribe being used for false
      claims aiming to all races
      that are “not white” is
      racism and blasphemy.
      Now I will be exposing
      Arnold Murray in my next
      post, especially in the part
      when the guy in the
      background shouted
      “Blasphemy” and Murray
      pulled out his briefcase that
      has a 9mm pistol saying
      “Take this 9mm to that
      boy.” His sermon was
      broadcasted in Christmas of
      1998.
      So again, please ignore their
      offensive racist blasphemy
      and stick to God’s Word.
      God Bless.

      1. and i cant wait for your latest expose’ of arnold murray, whom i never listen to. we are thankful that you are keeping us on the right path lolol

      2. You said: We had nothing to do with our natural birth, and we have nothing to do with our spiritual birth “ye are saved by Grace” and sadly not one person here understands because it’s a revelation,,( well this might be the most arrogant statement i have heard this week. how do you know who does or doesnt understand that?)

      3. Really? I would have to see that. I mean to be honest I like Arnold Murray and he does not teach racism in any form… actually he teaches racial and gender equality. Maybe in the past he believed something different. Really what Murray’s teachings boil down to is the difference of those believing in a “rapture” he often makes references to the original languages of each Bible. Honestly our believe systems are all similar as christians. I read the Bible when I was younger… own my own having never attended an actual church service (and never heard of murray) save for maybe once and if I did it was Baptist, anyway, I gathered that there was no ‘rapture’ being that we are not all of a sudden zapped from the face of the earth. we are brought a false messiah and many are mislead. Murray’s main teaching that he emphasizes is that Jesus returns at the 7th trump and 7th vial and to not be deceived because the anti-christ comes first. I read this as a child and I believed that way before much of the wickedness in this world was upon me. So I believe in a similar doctrine.

    1. Gen.4:1 tell us that Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived.How did he get the knowledge and bare a son of Cain

      1. Dear Sister Gloria
        firstly I woul like to greet all that belive in Christ Jesus in Jesus’ Name. I discovered that the Word of God is so rich, more than we can hold, the wisdom of God is without measure, there are many things that we do not know yet, thats why Jesus said(John16:12-13)”I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye CANNOT BEAR them NOW.13. Howbeit when HE, the SPIRIT of TRUTH is come, he will guide you into ALL TRUTH; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will SHOW you things to COME.” This to me reveals a lot of things in the riches of God, for now I have a very little knowledge not to boast of as far as the WORD of God is concerned, I still need more until all the obstacles in my heart, that cause me not to understand, are removed by the Word. Let us avoid condemning one another because it does not profit any of us. God knows why the world is in this mess and I believe that everything is for a purpose its all about the fulfilment of the Scripture. Since the bible tells us about false Prophets/False Teachers now to me it seems as if there is no more true Prophets/True Teachers in this time we are living in as you condemn everyone who talks or teach about Christ and I do not hear you telling us about those who teach the Word and are the true Prophets of our time, bcoz there should be someone preaching the Word, prophesying, healing in the Name of the Lord Jesus to fulfil the Scripture so far I hear about none(read I Corintians12:3-10. The Word of God says”Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another(Hosea4:4). But you will still know more about God and you will know great things , mysteries of God. I believe that the Word of God does not contradict itself not even in one time. I perceive that you yourself does not agree with the Word in some instances e.g the baptism as Mt28:19, Acts2:38,Acts8:16;Acts10:48,Acts19:5 etc and you add things that are not there(in one of your comments concerning the Serpent and Eve and Cain by saying Eve ate an “Apple” as that(of the Apple) is not in the bible) yet you do not need to be condemned and we/no one must say you are “a Liar” to me it shows that we are all run short of glory of the Lord, and no one is perfect in his/her own right and in us there is sort of lies.(I John4:20, If a man say, I love God , and hateth his brother, he is a LIAR…. And Romans3:4 ….yea, let God be true, but every man a LIAR ). The only thing that makes me believe the explanation of the Serpent seed and Eve and Cain is what the bible tells(I John3:12) that Cain is of the Wicked ONE of which I Conlude is the devil/Serpent therefore not of Adam again in Jude verse11 it says that Woe unto them!for they have gone the way of CAIN….why Cain? Coz he is the son of the wicked one, while Abel is the son of Adam has goth all attributes of Adam knowing excatle what sacriffice to offer, Cain filled with murder, unpleasing God, devil is the murder from the begining so as Cain. This is why I believe the explanation as this also is told in the very same bible, but should anything come from the Word explaining different from this I will take it. I request if any further explanation from the Word to come forth so to help me understand. The Word of God is rich. Thank you sister Gloria since I read,for the first time, your comments from the 13th October2012 I started to enjoy reading my bible, I thank you and may God, who is rich in mercy, bless you richly.

      2. FJN,

        You said: Since the bible tells us about false Prophets/False Teachers now to me it seems as if there is no more true Prophets/True Teachers in this time we are living in as you condemn everyone who talks or teach about Christ and I do not hear you telling us about those who teach the Word and are the true Prophets of our time,

        My comment: FJN, you don’t get it. A false prophet teaches what is not in the Word of God. He spreads lies, to confuse and distort people. You say you do not hear me talk about those spreading the Word of God correctly. But I tell you that believers-true believers will never distort God’s Word. Will never add to it. That’s how you find a true believer in Christ. One who accepts the Messiah, and takes the Bible as the 100% word of Christ.

        Your comment: I perceive that you yourself does not agree with the Word in some instances e.g the baptism as Mt28:19, Acts2:38,Acts8:16;Acts10:48,Acts19:5 etc and you add things that are not there(in one of your comments concerning the Serpent and Eve and Cain by saying Eve ate an “Apple” as that(of the Apple) is not in the bible) yet you do not need to be condemned and we/no one must say you are “a Liar” to me it shows that we are all run short of glory of the Lord, and no one is perfect in his/her own right and in us there is sort of lies.

        My comment: Where is it that I added to the Word of God? Trust me when I tell you I accept “all fall short of the Glory of God” including me, because Christ has shown me things, but a sinner like me he loves that much.

        Now you quibble over the fruit being an apple or it wasn’t an apple. FJN, what’s more important to you: Finding out whether the fruit was an apple or not, or finding out that Branham told a lie when he said: Cain was from Eve and Satan? Which one FJN to you will make a difference as to whether one will be punished for eternity? You do not see there errors of a false prophet, and that is where you are blind!

        FJN, truly I tell you and have explained, that the Bible verse you use 3:12 does NOT PROVE that Cain is from Satan. Such an error is horrendous. You must really pray and ask God to show you the way. Sin is from Satan, and as I said before that is what Jesus was talking about.

        Gode Bless

  4. Daniel Parker taught “two seeds in the spirit”, not in the flesh. I know this I used to belong to a congregation that fellowshipped some congregations that taught this doctrine. It basically taught that everyone had existed (in spirit form) before this life, that they are born in human flesh (wherein is made manifest, by their works, what seed they are —- that is, what type of person they were, are, and forever shall be) and at death, return into the spirit realm. As taught by them,it is not racist, but is very, very fatalistic, not allowing that a person of the “serpent seed” (as manifested by evil deeds) could repent and turn from their wickedness, nor could a person of the “righteous seed” do wickedly and be lost. That is how Daniel Parkerism is taught among certain “Old Baptist” churches in eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. Just thought I’d let you know.

  5. FJN…..If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you……undrestand my freind its not the Bible that has convinced you of this theory …,but yourself…and by going down into this abyss in search for ” answers” .. the place where you stumble is the same place where you shall find them………I prey that day will come soon .

    1. Mack…… GENESIS 3:15 is the 1st Messianic prophecy in the Bible and relates to the comeing of our saveior JESUS CHRIST and HIS victory over sin and death by HIS virgin birth , and blood sacrifice, Do not deny yourself GODS truth by galloping along on a high horse, as when it comes to learning the Scriptures it is better to ride a donky..

      1. What sort of jackass would call the Lord Jesus Christ the serpent’s seed of Genesis 3:15 ??!?

        Read Genesis 3:15 again:

        “THY SEED”
        and
        “HER SEED”
        are
        TWO SEEDS.

        Watch carefully: 1+1= 2

        Stop braying about things you don’t understand.

    2. MackQ

      Let us use God’s scripture truthful rather than twisting it to support your propaganda, the serpent seed doctrine is a belief based on poor biblical interpretation and superstition. It is a primary doctrinal resource for those who want to use Scriptures to justify racial prejudice. The serpent seed doctrine is also
      closely related to other erroneous beliefs such as the Christian Identity Movement and the Kenite
      doctrine.

  6. The Gospel of Jesus Christ tells us what the Seed of Satan is….yet many refuse to believe it they’d rather believe a lie….

  7. What about the nephilim? How was it that angels took the daughters of men? I don’t understand the scriptures that you speak of either enmity between the seed what does this mean?

    1. Hi Tina lets look at GODS words…GENISIS 3:15 and I will put enmity between thee and the women ,and between thy seed and her seed,It shall bruise thy head ,and thou shall bruise his heel….GOD haveing finnished talking to the serpent know adressed Lucifer/Satan ..And I will put ENMITY between ……synonyms for this word enmity ..bad blood/mutual hatetred/hostility etc this verse GENISIS 3:15 is the first Messianic prophacy in the Bible and I think you should research it more ,the prophacy { Thou shall bruise his heel} relates to the sacrifice of JESUS you see when someone is sacrificed on a cross one has to push down on your heel in order to lift yourself up to drew breath,you see this method of death was by slow suffication and was known to take days, thats why they broke the legs of the other two on that day,to speed up the process as the preists did not want them still on the cross on the Sabath.They did not need to break JESUS legs { fulfilling a prophacy } as he had allready died from a broken heart caused by the weight of the worlds sins

      1. Another shamefull example of twisting GODS words by FJN ? he has taken the words { thee and thy} which refers to you and me and our seed being sin/death and replased them with the word “serpent” to somehow convince himself and us of this ridiculous theory which is based on lies……..

  8. “As in the days of Noah.”…. I believe it’s the same subject, have you herd about synthetic biology? Or human genome project I think that the “Mark” will change your make or DNA code so that you r no longer in the image of God wich is why it will be unforgiven.

    1. As in the days of Noah, would mean sin reaching heights so bad, and the mankind continued to drink, fornicate, and did not see the flood coming.

      Matthew 24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

      So shall it be this time and is currently happening, and will be as in the days of Noah when Jesus comes with power and glory!

    2. Tina you are may be correct to imply that they were advansed in genetic engineering before/after the flood, as there is biblical and archeaological support ! ,and the scientists of our time can alter our DNA syntheticaly and have bean able to do so for some time, and there is a theory that the anti-christ will be some synthetical geneticly alterd abomination who will be able to do some fancy tricks ,who knows its all speculation ! As for this mark of the beast on/in your forehead and on/in your hand,reminds me of those brainwashed nazies, holding there hands aloft to there beloved feurer…I do know what GODS SEAL is, and that is to have absolute faith in JESUS by word of mouth, and in ones actions,even in the face of scorn and persicution.. 2 TIMOTHY 3:12 …..and if one does not have this SEAL ….read REVELATIONS 9:4..

      1. Amen! Just wanted to share I hear a lot of people think that the mark will be RFID chip. I take the word more literal and as time and technology seems to speed up things seem to be more clear. Somark tattoo co. Intitialy intended for catle will be for people also, along with the lies of medical break-throughs and eternal life. Ready To go! 🙂

  9. (smile) Tina….I like what you said…I remember when the Church’s were teaching that Social Security was the ‘Mark’….My Mother and Father’s generation still alive at that time, told me about how it was so hated and decided amongst “some” that it was the ‘mark’…we as they all knew it was not, just like the RFID Chip is not but ‘it is’…as was the Social Security and any and all means of Identification, whether it be ‘eyes, hands, fingers, any other such Identification are all ‘preludes’ to ”The Mark , ..(“The Name, The Number, The Image”)
    ..and so the story continues (smile) we are watching it all come
    about in our generation. Just as the ‘Cattle Chips’ were a ‘Prelude’ to Identifying People!! (of which I doubt any Cow, or any other such animal or bird would like to have a Staple thick enough to attach those ”Tags”….Ouch!! (and I doubt very seriously that there would
    not be a ”ba-zillion” folks saying ‘how important it is to ‘tag’ animals. Amazing how God did not think of some of these things that we as Man seems to be so ”smart” about….(smile) …

  10. Question????? How come the Artists seems to think it is Okay to show the portrait of Adam with his back turned while his privates are not seen….yet it is Okay to show Eve with her breasts shown …and not show Eve with her back to the Artist and viewer….hmmmm??? Do I have so little to do today, that I can sit here and ‘nick pick’ a picture of a Dead Artist? (smile)…’No!!! One thing about the European folks, they sure are hung up on alot of naked pictures, statues and call it Art…just like America calls it ‘art’…Yet GOD says we are not to look upon the nakedness …hmmm again Man seems to be smarter than God…wow ..I’m on a Roll today folks (smile)…Have a blessed Day…gotta get back to work…! †

    1. Liz,

      the Bible teaches that it was a “fruit.”

      But thank you Jesus Christ because me being saved, doesn’t rely on me believing that the fruit was an apple or a peach.

    2. I agree with that statement… although commonly referred to as an apple its just ‘forbidden fruit’ which could be literal or it could be metaphorical I think the real answer does not matter that much…. sometimes as christians we focus on the wrong part of the story. The message is the same either way.

      1. Yes Hallelujah… My feelings exactly… God has revealed much purpose within this historical account… And a sexual act between Lucifer and Eve is not one of those revellings..
        This would have to also be implying that Adam indulged in homosexual sin… God forbid this Blasphemy

  11. Let me tell you this straight, never heard of the preacher/s who preach this doctrine but have read the quotations and they are drippng with the “natural sin-denying” satanic accords as expected/as usual.
    Still, the best lie is dipped in truth to make it easier to swallow, that seems to be a quite often recurring pattern.
    I believe in this case we can witness this same ‘effect’.

    So please, can anybody explain me plainly in the light of these two verses quoted why it would represent a problem that Cain was the seed of the Serpent?

    I believe this has already been discussed above but the arguments against it did not really came through to me, so again
    1 John 3:12 – “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”
    And in connection to that Genesis 4:25 “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.”

    So according to Gen 4:25 the seed of the good, “The seed of the woman” is maintained through which our Saviour the Son Jesus Christ in flesh can manifest.

    I’m open to any sugestion for the sake of clarification until it solely relies on The Holy Word of God.

    Sorry if my english is unclear at some points!

    Greetings from Hungary

    1. lil”worm Forget about the serpent !… GOD haveing told it of its punishment………. { to eat dust in HIS yet to be restored universe for eternity },……….. slitherd off …….GOD then addresed Satan, and spoke of his seed to the world, which is death, by means of turning you and me into sinners by deceiveing Eve to eat the forbiden fruit …, because Satan used a woman to corrupt GODS perfect creation …..,GOD in-turn tells Satan that HE will use a woman to ultimately destroy him….JESUS destroyed death by his own death and resurection…,HIS blood sacrifice also gave us the opertuneity to be saved from death, if we repent by asking forgiveness for our sins……hope this helps ? ,to write a full detailed explanation for this 1st prophacy could take several pages ..

  12. Gloria, we meet again. I hope you are “progressing” in your “service” to God. What you don’t know, you don’t know. Stop forcing it. The serpent seed IS SCRIPTURAL. Jesus called them “generation of vipers”, “serpents”, peter called them “brute beasts”. Nothing in them wants salvation. They are blasphemous people both within and outside the religious circle.
    Two trees in the garden were NOT literal. They were two spiritual laws regarding life and death, each personified in christ and satan respectively. Cain was from the satan possessed serpent, a humanoid creature, while abel was from adam the first earthly son of God. Study these ffg scriptures carefully-
    ‘eating from a tree’ is a symbolic act- prov.30v19-20, rev2v7, hosea4v6, just as we have the ‘fruit’ of the womb, fruit of the spirit, etc. Study jn8v40-47, jews know about the serpent seed, it’s in their midrash, a jewish eschatologic book. Gen4v1- all life(good and bad) came from God, but there is always an appointed seed(see gen.5v3) in place of abel. Cain was never in adam’s genealogy ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE.
    People misuse scriptures to achieve their aims. Racists use serpent seed doctrine, lazy and insincere christians use the grace/forgiveness doctrine, etc.

    1. Chika,

      The serpent seed is NOT scriptural. Nowhere in the Word of God does it say satan had intercourse with Eve, Nor was Cain born from such a relation. It is disgusting that one would even distort the Word of God this way.

      When Jesus used the term “generation of vipers” it was in reference to the religious leaders of his day.

      I suggest you study the Word of God with an open heart to Jesus, and stop following man and his lies.

      1. My dear gloria, ‘woman’ mated with the serpent(NOT satan) to produce cain. Satan is a spirit that took control of the serpent. Adam, instead of interceeding for woman’s wrong, followed the desecrated sex for pleasure with her. God punished adam and mankind, woman and womankind, the serpent and his kind. Shortly afterwards, adam changed woman’s name to eve, because she is the mother of ALL living(both good and bad people). Serpent seeds are known by their fruits i.e acts or behaviour, not by race, or religious affiliation.

      2. Chika,

        You said: My dear gloria, ‘woman’ mated with the serpent(NOT satan) to produce cain

        My comment: Give me a Bible verse that proves what you are saying is the truth. Otherwise it is a lie, and I have no interest in further communicating with you to discuss a disgusting lie as you claim.

  13. Sis. Gloria, i pasted it there, but you CHOSE not to SEE it. What connection links being the devil’s son(through the serpent) to being born of fornication(i.e spiritual ‘bastard’) as recorded in jn8v40-47? Please STUDY my previous posts CAREFULLY. God bless you.

    1. Chika,

      You bring John 8 up. Well re-read my article because you are WRONG. I will copy and paste a section of my article regarding John 8.

      There have been a few who use John 8 versus 31-58 to try to explain the serpent seed as right.

      John 8 Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are

      31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” 34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[b]”
      39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would[c] do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

      Clarification: Jesus is responding to the Jews, those who hold and believe in him will be set free in Jesus Christ. Those who sin and continue to sin are of (see Jesus saying Abraham’s decendants trying to kill him), those who continue to sin are doing the works of their father.

      Who is the father of those who refuse to accept Christ?

      John 8:44 answers it beautifully. And it goes onto today, for every sinner who continues to sin, murder, speak evil, lies, and commits atrocities, Jesus says:

      John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.

      1. God knows those that are his, and he won’t lose a single one of them. Study with divine revelation, NOT with scholastic intellect PLEASE…. I still await your response.

      2. Chika,

        That was my response. And studying and praying to Jesus Christ, is how you’ll get answers. Not by listening to men like Branham’s lies and this silly serpent seed doctrine.

        It goes against everything in HIS Word. Again stop, following men, and start praying to Jesus.

  14. Then explain “…we be not born of fornication….we have one father…even God”(jn.8v41 kjv). It’s not just who he was talking to, but what he was exposing. Tell me gloria, is your shallow reading intentional? Because it appears you are not willing to be open minded. I read your article and it’s not new, it’s the same old ‘antagonism in the name jesus’ displayed by your school of thought. That’s by the way though, pls explain the bible ref i gave you…

    1. You cannot take one simple verse out of John Chapter 8, and draw your own sinful conclusion on it, based on something you took out of context. it makes no sense.

  15. Then what makes sense? Chewing a fruit from a tree called “knowledge of good and evil”? Chewing a fruit from a “tree of life” as your reward in heaven for being faithful and an overcomer?(see Rev.2v7). By the way, have you gone through other scriptures 1st john 3v9-12, matt 13v24-30 and compared them? You still haven’t shown me where cain’s name appeared in adam’s geneaology, afterall, adam is his father isn’t it? Every patriach in the bible had a genealogical account of their sons that are named in the scripture. Where is cain in adam’s genealogy?

    1. I suspect that we could keep going around in circles, without agreeing on anything. You have a Branham view on things, which is completely wrong. Yet, you do not care to study the Word of God, and pray to Jesus to guide you in the meaning of his Word.

      You asked: Then what makes sense? Chewing a fruit from a tree called “knowledge of good and evil”? Chewing a fruit from a “tree of life” as your reward in heaven for being faithful and an overcomer?

      My comment: Before we even hit Genesis 3, the two trees are mentioned in Genesis 2:9

      Genesis 2:9: The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground–trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

      You see in the same verse where God said he made all kinds of trees grow out? and then it mentions the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? He made these trees, they are actual trees.

      Genesis 3:24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

      Again actual trees.

      You said: You still haven’t shown me where cain’s name appeared in adam’s geneaology, afterall, adam is his father isn’t it?

      My comment: Shouldn’t this verse give your answer? It’s pretty clear.

      Genesis 4 Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain.

      1. YOU know within you, that your answers are deficient and lame. You even ignored the ‘tree of life’ completely. YOU claim to have jesus yet you refuse to baptize in his name as recorded in all the acts of apostles, as well as colossian 3v17 kjv. I said it before, you have zeal but lack adequate knowledge. You think you do service to God by demonizing branham, may God forgive you. Keep up the ‘good work’. You are the same person using one bible quotation to lamely prove your point. If i sleep with a lady who met with another, it is possible for her to bear a child that isnt mine or SUPERFETATION can even take place. Show me cain in adam’s genealogy miss gloria… Stop meandering for christ sake…you serve a God you don’t even know intimately but have heard about…THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, my lord and master. Stop bragging, “….anoint your eyes with eyesalve…”(rev.3v14-22)

      2. Chika,

        I show you Bible versus that prove you are wrong, and you say the answers are lame? Let’s close this conversation, and I humbly suggest that you seek Jesus Christ with all your heart, and study the Word of God fully.

        God Bless,

        Gloria

      3. @gloria, as for me, i don’t “suggest….”, i PRAY your eyes of understanding be opened up in Jesus name. Another day cometh. Shalom.

  16. and tell us why we should support this website? for what purpose? as far as i am concerned, get your money from god by working a job. asking is begging if god is really your father. ask him for money. not people.. i dont expect you to leave these comments on here. most people at sites like these that post derogatory comments, no matter how scriptural or sincere are simply deleted or blocked entirely

    1. Dear jimmysmith

      Shalom.

      My reply:

      You do not have to support this website. It is an option. You do not have to buy the morning paper either. But if you do, I guess you do not mind paying some few dollars.

  17. rajen says:

    the SSD is not scriptural, all branhams followers take your alligence n focus from him n turn your attention to Jesus..please time is running out. all this scripture u quote is turning this debate into a circus act ( LOL ) cain is not mentioned in the geneology of adam because god cast him out to be a vagabond a nobody as part of his punishment, the same god of adam said unto cain that he will put a mark of protection on him and he will revenge any1 tat harms cain huh ????? my god protecting satans son >>>>>no way u know y ? because cain was of adams seed,,,,,,,,,eg: ishmail wasn’t t promised son but because he was of abram seed god still blessed him……so stop this nonsense and honour u gv branham u guys are gonna anger god because he is a jealous god give him your attention
    love u with t love of christ

  18. it doesn’t matter what this or that person believes. take the word of God and read it yourself and ask God for help to give u wisdom and understanding. to many people are stuck on 1 or 2 subjects and they want to try to deceive you into believing it. start digging in the word like your digging for gold. there are many more things to learn on how to get saved, things like keeping the armor of God on so you don’t fall these lies of the false teachers. things on backsliding turning your back on God. how to fast and pray for a stronger relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus. the Lord gives us joy in living for him theres a lot of things in the bible that people need. and I get tired of people staying on one subject all the time just to try to get people to understand there ways. you stay on one subject all the time guess what you aint going to get what you need to fight off the devil the next day or the next cause your still stuck on what happened with adam and eve. lets get on with life with Jesus and try to win the lost people from sin.

    1. agreed, we often focus on the wrong part of the story. Seek wisdom in God and you shall find it… in what form it may come. Even as we may believe in different things the bible teaches central values that can not be denied. I choose to try and understand Gods word as close as I can to the original intent of the writers… even though I may be wrong or even decieved. I have a gut feeling what I am doing is okay… I think that those who feel content with their beliefs will not be ignored by God in the long run. If any questions left unanswered they will be brought to light when the time comes.

  19. Wow! I can’t say that I stumbled upon this site by accident! I have been praying and asking God to lead me, guide me, to be my Teacher – as He was Teacher to so very many, so many years ago. I have been diligently seeking and praying from the heart. I have had a gut-feeling and feeling of uneasiness with some of the most recent things that have been “taught” to me… I do believe it is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I give thanks and Glory to the Almighty Father in heaven – to the Holy Spirit for answering prayer! Continue to guide me on Your destination for me, Precious Father!

  20. @rajen, ishmael was clearly in abraham’s GENEAOLOGY and it has been proved with various scriptures from OT to NT. But thats never the case with cain. FYI, there is NO scriptural basis that supports your view on cain being protected by God’s because he was adam’s son, thats a big fat dirty LIE!

  21. all of you “sincere” people who denounce anyone that even considers this doctrine and says “their soul is in a dangerous position”, on the contrary, i think not… in this day and age, and considering the many various translations of the bible, it is a healthy thing to consider all things that are in it. to say “the new testament teaches this verse in the old testament”, etc,, by whose authority? all of you people who denounce those who consider this doctrine are simply insecure in your faith. if they have any but lip service. you are hopelessly a slave to your insecurity and you feel it is important to fully be able to explain and understand all things. you have tried to multiply (with your proselytizing about this subject) before you have born any fruit. selah. give speed to the simple doctrines of jesus christ and live and let live.

  22. The “Serpent-Seed” doctrine is a lie propagated by racists. It goes hand in hand with the claim that black people are of a different origin to white people. It is also used to cast a shadow over the truth of fallen Angels mating with human women, producing Nephilim. They are in my opinion, the physical Seed of the Serpent. Many shy away from discussing this biblical fact for fear of being connected with Serpent-Seed doctrine. It’s just another tactic of Satan, used to hide the truth.

  23. dear jimmythesmith, well said. i dont see where any of this has to do with a persons salvation. it is an interesting theory to me. i appreciate arnold murrays commitment to reading the bible line upon line precept upon precept. he proclaims the trinity and the atoning blood of Jesus. that makes him my brother

    1. John Daughtery and Jimmy Smith,

      The serpent seed theory has many man made errors to it, and threatens to add to the Word of God, when clearly God’s word stands on his own.

      A clear example which I will reiterate here from the article I wrote above, Using words like “Eve was seduced” COMPARED TO GOD’S WORD “Eve was deceived” is a huge difference. If a man knocks on my door and chooses to twist what I know CLEARLY states in the Word of God, I will show him his/her exit.

      2 Corinthians 11:4
      4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

  24. Okay I just can’t leave this alone. Gloria, what pray tell was the Apple? Tell me what you think the forbidden fruit was. Then tell me what the tree of life is. Maybe I’m missing something

    1. Hello Howard,

      You are asking me two things. First the tree of life the Word of God says:
      “And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground – trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:9).

      My Comment The tree of life was barred due to Adam and Eve not obeying God. The tree of Life is spiritual, and to all those who believe and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior,

      Revelation 22:1–2 The River of Life

      22 Then the angel1 showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life2 with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

      You also asked what “pray tell was the Apple”?

      My Comment: I won’t go around in circles, what the actual fruit was that was eaten.

      Genesis 3 says: The Fall

      1Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.
      He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” 2And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, but she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.

      Additional Comment: Genesis 3 is pretty clear.

  25. What is all this hysteria about the serpents seed? Jesus and John the baptist accuse the Jews of being the seed of the serpent.

  26. With all due respect I can write without prejudice and moderate what I say but God speaks and Jesus and John speak with prejudice but I cannot moderate the word of God or Jesus. Matt. 3.7 and 12.34. 23. You generation of vipers who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? I am sorry if I have trod on toes but are there pages missing from some Bibles?

  27. Please explain Genesis 3:13-16, you left that out. And, Genesis 4:2 she “again” meaning Cain and Abel were twins. Cain is not mentioned in the lineage of Adam, twice. Cain has his own lineage. Only good thing for you, not believing in the serpent seed will not keep you out of Heaven, but if you understood it, it opens many more doors in the Bible, like circumcision.

  28. I have just recently heard about the serpent seed heresy. Gloria, you are to be commended for your defense of the truth of God’s word against this heresy. I would like to comment if I may. I was reading comments by “jimmy the smith” .
    He states in Feb.6th/14 post – “Most don’t understand the bible much less believe it completely. people read and come to their own conclusions. First of all I would say that this man certainly doesn’t know The Lord! I Corinthians 1:18 says – “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 2:14 says – ” But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” It’s true that many do not understand God’s word and the reason is because they have not the Spirit of God.
    Romans 8:9 says – “…if anyone have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”
    It is the indwelt presence of The Holy Spirit that gives a Christian understanding of scripture. Our Lord has given us, His children His Spirit. John 14:16-18. “..whom the world cannot receive.John 16:13-14 – ” However, when He, The Spirit of truth , has come, He will guide you into all truth; For He will not speak on His own authority , but whatever He hears He will speak: and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is mine and declare it to you.” He also states in His high priestly prayer that He prays – John 17:9 “I pray for them, I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.” For the Christian, like Gloria, who rightly divides the word of truth, we have our mandate – II Timothy 2:15 – ” Study to present yourself approved unto God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” This statement alone makes it evident that there are those who DO NOT rightly divide the word of truth. ISAIAH 8:20 says – ” To the law and the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” If peoples opinions contradict God’s word, it is because their opinions are false! II Timothy 3:15-17 “That from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
    All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
    Those who don’t understand or believe all of Scripture, or think they can interpret it any way they please do not know God! They belong to those spoken of in I Corinthians 1:18; 2:14 etc.
    II Timothy 3:12-13 says – “All who live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
    This same man also criticized “SAVED BY GRACE.”
    Ephesians 2:8-9 – ” For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the GIFT OF GOD, NOT OF WORKS, lest anyone should boast.”
    I Corinthians 1:29-31 – ” That no flesh should glory in His presence.
    But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who became for us wisdom from God – righteousness, sanctification and redemption – that, as it is written, ” He who glories, let him glory in The Lord.”
    Titus 3:5 ” Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of The Holy Spirit.”
    Jesus tells us in John 6:44,65 ” No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
    v’s 39-40 says – ” This is the will of The Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
    And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees The Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
    Faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ by His shed blood on the cross and bodily resurrection from the dead is the one and only way of salvation!
    John 14:6 Jesus said – ” I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to The Father, except through Me.”
    Acts 4:12 says “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which you must be saved.”
    This is speaking about the Name of Jesus Christ. Deity in the flesh, The Great I AM.
    John 8:58 “… before Abraham was, I Am.” cf. Exodus 3:14.
    Acts 16:31 When Paul & Silas were asked the way of salvation, they answered – ” Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…”
    I might also ad that good works are not a way of salvation or an addition to the work of Jesus Christ, but are a result of having already been saved.
    Titus 3:8 says – ” … Those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works.” cf. v.14.
    II Corinthians 5:17 says – ” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
    Salvation is by grace! Romans 5:1-2 ” Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom also we access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
    Romans 4:4 ” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.” Works does not provide salvation – V.5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly , his faith is accounted as righteousness.”
    When Jesus was asked in John 6:28 “What shall we do , that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered v. 29 – ” This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
    Any other gospel than the gospel of grace comes under the double curse of God!
    Galatians 1:8-9 ” But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
    As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.”
    This is not my opinion but the clear teaching of the inspired, innerant, word of God.
    But, of course this will mean nothing to those who reject the truth of God’s word.
    It amazes me the relativism of today. The false theory of non absolutes. Two opinions can be in direct opposition, yet both true! How naive can one be!
    God’s word is true and truth and error are rightly divided.
    Thanks Gloria for your fine work!

  29. In regarding the serpent seed heresy – Hebrews 5:12-14 ” For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
    For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
    For solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
    I John 2:26-27 – These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.
    But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
    This is not a contradiction to I Corinthians 12:28 but this is referring to discernment between the truth and false teachings. We who are in Christ have the Spirit of God within and have the ability to discern between truth and error.
    I John 4: 1-6 tells us to test the spirits to see if they confess the Lord Jesus Christ. If they do not, they are of the world and the world will hear them. A child of God will not believe a lie. v. 5-6 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.
    We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
    A true believer in Jesus Christ would never be deceived by heresies like serpent seed!
    II Corinthians 11:3 ” But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
    v’s 13-15 ” For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
    Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.”cf. Revelation 20:13.
    There is absolutely not one shred of scripture that one could use that would even hint at such a heresy!
    It doesn’t take a scholar to see through these false teachings!
    The only ones deceived are unbelievers!
    Thanks again Gloria for your faithfulness in defending the truth of God’s word!

  30. I read a lot of words on here towards brothers and sisters in Christ ” a true believer would not this and that” etc ?
    The Bereans searched the scriptures. I hardly see how believing in the serpent seed is going to lose someone their salvation ? Hardly blasphemy ? No criticism of God of Jesus or Holy spirit ? It is not going to lead us to doubt God or to to sin or whatever ?We all know what we believe and in the end it matters not as the great Dutch WW2 Christian Heroine Corrie ten Boom said : ” Don’t worry too much what you do not understand about the Bible. Worry instead what you DO know and are not doing.”
    I think both doctrines ( apple eating or serpent seed) have their pro’s and cons. Even their own ” evidence” !!
    To say there is no such thing as a serpents seed is of course odd,whatever it is , GOD mentioned it as part of the curse He put on the serpent and Eve was to do with ” seed” and everywhere seed is referred to in the Bible means offspring.What it actually means ?
    I am not sure , searching and praying about it,but know it is the first prophecy and to do with our Saviour so VERY important for sure.
    Those who ” lead astray” are such as Darwin, sect leaders, Mohammad who declared God did not have a Son and Jesus was not crucified..Blasphemy indeed ! Those taking away the message of the Saviour Jesus ?
    Not Christians who believe Jesus to be Divine Son of God, born of a virgin, teaching , healing and crucified for our sins as Redeemer and rose again , ascended into heaven and will return.
    Whatever,strange Cain is not in the geneology of Adam/Jesus. On the other hand neither are the other brothers and sisters of Cain Abel and Seth we are told were also children of Adam and Eve. ( as she is the mother of all living),such as who Cain married and whom he was afraid would kill him.
    Let us accept there ismuch we do not fully understand
    There are enough false teachers without judging our own for not quite interpreting as we might do !
    A false teacher /deceivers for instance is anyone who lures people to atheism and other beliefs and cults as I mentioned, away from the truth of the Gospel?
    The wrongGenesis is i.e. Evoution ? Whatever the original sin was it happened and we suffer for it and Jesus saves us from it is the most important. ? Quite honestly I find it all fascinating,the different interpretations of original sin and thank God for such discussions – which we always had when I was growing up at home.we would discuss the sermon Sunday , or anything we came across. Obviously there would not be thousands of denominations if there were not so many interpretations of scriptures and each one declares themselves as right.
    I know God gave me a brain as well as a heart and soul and that I am made in the image of God ( who is spirit) so I like to pray and think and search
    We can often be too stuck in a denominational teaching and can call each other heretical too often without good reason, and this is the reason I worship at home as the first Christians did for 300 years. But each unto his own.I have no problem with those who attend a church , as they have the freedom as I do.
    Bless you all and for me important we try to never lose our first love !

    1. no way,

      Titus 2:7-8 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.

      Romans 12:6-7 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;

      2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

  31. The revelation of the serpent seed does not present any means to lead God’s children astray, I wonder why some people think it is a lie from the devil. A lie from the devil then how does it benefit the devil. Jesus has made it clear to us several times; he gave a parable of the wheat and tares found in Matthew 13:24-30 and 37-43. Please note that Jesus interpreted this parable and the interpretation is clear but christians still see this interpretation as a parable, I wonder why?? John 8:44 also confirms it Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees and proclaimed, ‘Ye are of your father the devil..” The term “of” meaning generation, offspring. They were of the physical seed of their father the devil.

    John 3:12 “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother.
    Well let me stop here but we should know that it is not a sin to search for knowledge remember ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge’

    1. Hello Red,

      Let me re-post what William taught, “What is the serpent seed doctrine? This horrific teaching teaches that Eve had sexual intercourse with Satan (the serpent) and that is how Eve bore Cain. William Branham taught that the fall of mankind started with this alleged coupling, and that Cain was a fertile man/serpent hybrid.

      Please point out to me where in the Bible this what Branham teaches. I don’t find it anywhere. Do you know why? Because William does try to lead and has led people away from GOD’S TRUTH.

      You ask me how a lie benefit’s the devil? It benefits him completely, because his lie leads people away from God and the Word of God. What Branham teaches simply isn’t biblical.

      Gloria

  32. Red, You say that in John 8:44 that the Pharisees are the physical seed of their father the devil. Jesus said in verse 37, “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants”. So Jesus states that they are Abraham’s descendants but you claim they are physical seeds of the devil. So is Abraham a seed of the devil then too? And for everyone that says Cain is not in the genealogy need to understand he will never be because the genealogy shows the path to Christ which went through Seth. And for those that say Cain can’t be Adam’s son because he did evil things. Let’s not forget that Adam had already sinned before having Cain. This makes Adam a fallen sinful man. How many times do we see differences in kids where one is good and one is bad but have the same father?

  33. Hard thing to ponder… Many pros and cons. To be that of devil means obey devil or to be literally genetically descendant? My approach is to follow indirect traces of what happened in Paradise. First of all, punishment of Eve (sex and begetting children), Adam – troubled business. Other: for example, where come sex from ? SSD is one answer, anti SSD says “from God as His marvellous gift”. Ok, no recognition here. So what about sex – I mean legal, marital sex, not fornication – after Paradise? See Numeri – restrain semene in the body – polluting matter. Flow out of the body – polluting matter. Gods presence on the Sion? “Do not touch your wifes .. !” David and others eating holy bread? “Wifes are distant so our bodies are holy …” 1st Corinthian 7 ? Marital sex is admitted only it is a tool against danger of fornication, no positive assessment. So is it closer to what Branham says about sex (“the second, not first intent of God “), and of seed of the devil, or to what churches publish to that topic fantasying about “marvellous gift of God” ? (There is something wrong with the sex, even legal one). The sooner is right, not the later. I am not the branhamite, by the way.

  34. Some reputable Jewish Rabbis also taught the serpent seed doctrine, Some people look into it deeper and know more , Yes at first glance it seems like a false teaching, but in every part of scripture pertaining to the Eve/serpent encounter there are always key words that allow for the serpent seed view point. Even Eves statement “I have got a man from the Lord” statement is her way of not giving Adam the credit as she did at other times , Besides all life/births are a miracle from the LORD.

  35. Shalom… First thing is to study the HEBREW. English cant not paint pictures like the HEBREW can. The question of did Eve and The Nachash have sex…well if you know your HEBREW and have a HEBREW understanding​ of grammar and context. Then you will Know that there was a sexual act involved… Im not going to tell you the whole story because your heardened hearts would just scoff and speak death against​ thruth. But yes One of the twins was the serpents seed, and the others way Adam’s…the ACTUAL MYSTERY GOD HAS VEILED IS WHICH ONE WAS IT…. And most people jump to Cain because he was the first child out, but they were twins born at same time. And the HEBREW makes is clear that they were half-brothers… So in this case it is the names, jobs, and expressions of eve that will show you the truth…also and i do hate this…we are missing a part of the story…the conversation between Cain and Abel was taken out…i dont understand why…. It it is important to know that the Nachash was not a snake untill after the curse.. the Nachash was a Seraphim. And this story is important for end-times understanding.. Nephilim, and DNA coruption is Satans Weapon.

  36. As someone who was/is born again in Christ (+), and having read ALL of the Word, and with discernment and spirit, I personally take no issue with either viewpoint (I was not there in Eden, so I cannot be sure on this matter). Is it possible that Cain was the actual seed of Satan? IMO, yes, based on ALL of the Word. However and again, I don’t really know? Does anyone living in flesh today? Also, it really does not matter; what matters most is focus on & in Christ (+), our Lord!

  37. Wow, I couldn’t even finish because of how sadly deeply wrong you have all this. One in order to disprove God’s word this way you must understand scripture. I only got to you misquoted genesis verse Adam made love… That’s not even in scripture and if you use new New translation you have been highly decieved .

    The seed of the wicked one and thr seed of Christ will be the only two DNA lines here and judged, I refuse to cast pearls before swine, so here is what I would highly suggest, trash this and start over

    I didn’t grow up in church but knew the Apple story and no other, none I became Wiccan , God himself came by holy spirit and made alive did a complete over Gaul and ironically? Not to me God is planned, shows me this revelation not till I began to see where this was did I see others who see and believe then found pastor Murray who helped me tons with what the HOLY SPIRIT GAVE. When the HOLY holy spirit baptizes you, you are your see wicked Ecc 3:18 will help you, he comes to 100% straighten you up.

    You show people who have been baptized by holy spirit what happens to a soul you goes swimming in a building with sour wine to drink.
