The Seed Of The Serpent

Hi again C____,

The “seed of the serpent” and “of your father the devil” are spiritual statements which have nothing to do with spirits having sex with women. All men are “in Adam.”

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Eve is the mother of “all living.”

Gen 3:20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Being the “seed of the serpent” has to do with “who you yield yourselves to obey.” Christ admits that the Jews of His day were “Abraham’s seed,” yet in the same breath, He tells them that “Ye are of your father the Devil.”

Joh 8:30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

There is a world of difference between “believing on Christ” and “continuing in His Word.” As it is to this day, it is “those… which believe on Christ” who still seek to kill God’s elect. As you become aware of God’s Truth, as you stand for God’s Truth, you will find that you, too, will be persecuted for doing good:

2Ti 3:12 vYea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Now let’s continue on with what Christ said of “those Jews which believed on Him:

Joh 8:37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
Joh 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
Joh 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. Joh 8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
Joh 8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [ even] God.
Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye can not hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

What makes one a son of the devil has nothing to do with physical begetting or physical birth. It was “Abraham’s seed” who Christ says are “of their father the devil.” What made them “of their father the devil? “Ye do the deeds of your father.” And again: “the lusts of your father ye will do.” That is what constitutes the “seed of the serpent” and makes one “of your father the devil.” Being “the seed of the woman” or “of Abraham” likewise has to do with “doing the works of Abraham.” It is all spiritual. It has nothing to do with physical descent. All are of Adam, and Eve is the mother of all living.

Be sure to read the letter already posted entitled Fallen Angels, Spirits In Prison, and The Woman and Manchild of Rev 12.

And another letter on this subject is entitled Why Was Cain’s Sacrifice Rejected.

I hope this answers your question.
