Further Light On Serpent’s Seed

genesis 3 14 15

I was recently in a church service in Denizli, Turkey where brother Petros was speaking teaching the believers the serpent’s seed doctrine. It was preached in Farsi, but a brother was translating the service for me. I thoroughly enjoyed his approach to teaching it. One point he made was such a blessing for me because I had never heard it that way. It is regarding the sin of Adam and the resulting curse. Let’s first examine the curse;

(Genesis 3:17) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

In the teaching of serpent’s seed, we understand that the serpent gave Eve to eat of the tree of knowledge (tempting and leading her to sexual sin) and then Eve brought Adam to eat of the tree of knowledge as well. However, Eve was his wife so how can we consider Adam to have sinned. Let’s turn forward to the book of Deuteronomy.

When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
(Deuteronomy 24:1-4)

To be clear, Adam did not send Eve away in a divorce, but she lay with the serpent and then came to Adam. So in the original sin, Adam sinned and the land was cursed. And in Deuteronomy 24, when speaking of divorce and remarriage, states that if a man takes back his original wife, after having been with another man, he will cause the land to sin. This is what Adam did and it caused the curse upon the earth.

  • Shalom Brother Jason,

    Mine was a just small query on the issue. Did it matter to God if “being with another man” involved just consensual sex or a marriage? In Deuteronomy 24 we are seeing a married woman but I doubt Eve ever got married to the serpent.

    I read in the message where Brother Branham helped reconcile an adulterous couple in the sense that all they had to do was to confess to each other for the wrong committed against each other. He did not forbid the man to take back the woman.

    The only cases where things were quite different is where the woman goes and marries another man. In this case the man could not take her back.

    Will appreciate your comments on this.

  • That is a scriptural understanding that is so obvious, yet I have never considered it. What a great blessing to have further revelation and light upon the subject.

  • Ecxactly my brother, the serpent seed still remains a mysytery for many. But I thank God for His election, revelation after revelation brings it even more clearer.

  • Very good comment brother Benson. I appreciate your critical thinking on this. Your attitude and response demonstrate a good spirit and a godly desire for truth.
    Yes, you are right, there was no marriage ceremony performed between the Serpent and Eve, because there was no one there to do so. In fact, we have nothing written in Scripture that Adam and Eve were married as we would consider a ceremony. It simply was as God created. It was the sexual act that caused it to be considered as Eve “living” with the Serpent as her husband.
    Notice, what brother Branham states here below.

    132 † Now notice. Now look at Revelations 3, the Laodicean Church Age. You think it in your mind.
    133 Now notice. She, Eve, is Satan’s queen. See, Satan, the serpent, got to Eve before Adam got to her. See? That’s right. So he beguiled her, see; so Satan, the serpent, was the husband of Eve before Adam ever knew. See, he beguiled her. The Bible said he did, and she knowed she was naked, then. See?

    I have the same belief as you on this one.When the wife marries another man,how then can the original man claim her to be his wife.

    Bro Josiah

  • Thanks Brother Jason.

    So are we safe to surmise that “husband” element in the quote indicates that Eve actually got married to the Serpent? Or is brother Branham’s language only an illustration of the sexual act without any reference whatsoever to an actual “vow of marriage” between Eve and the Serpent?

    Thanks again for comments.

  • Brother Benson,
    No, at the time there was no such thing as actual marriage, in reference to vows. Did Adam and Eve exchange vows? Of course not, it was God that joined them together via the act of creation. But through the act of sex she was joined to the serpent. The sexual act results in two people being one flesh which is what marriage is.
    Read 1 Corinthians 6:16.
    “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.”
    Though Eve was not a harlot, the principle applies.

  • Shalom Brother Jason,

    Thanks for that explanation about the concept of marriage at the very beginning..

    Bro Benson

  • I am blessed today locating your site.God bless you. I am a contender by His grace, in Shagamu, Ogun State Nigeria.W.M.BRANHAM is actually the mouth piece of GOD in this last age. The serpent seed is well explained.

  • Glad to hear you are contending by HIS Grace! We are standing shoulder to shoulder with you in Nigeria my brother! Lord Bless you

  • Brother Petros’ exegesis on the sin of Adam proves that we need to be grounded in the Bible- to be able to not only witness to others from the Word of Truth, but also it grounds our faith where it belongs. In the Bible. I was greatly blessed by Bro. Petros’ insight; it shows the immutability of God- that the principles for His Kingdom are woven throughout the Word in a Divine Consistency that could not possibly be contrived by any man. Thank you for your faithfulness, Bro. Petros. I hope to meet you someday. I have your refrigerator maget in my Bible to remind me of your work.
