If Serpent’s Seed Is True, What Was Adam’s Sin?

In preimages-1vious posts we brought out the teaching of serpent’s seed, showing that the original sin was sex, not literally eating apples. You can read more in What is the Original Sin? In this post we want to deal more with the sin of Adam. He ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but how did he do so? Let’s start at the beginning of the story andgive a whole and as clear a picture as possible.

God commanded them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam and Eve were already immortal. It was not necessary for them personally to eat of the tree of life. However, this was a principle that God ordained to govern life. If you notice the word eating is used to describe the sex act in Proverbs 30:20. “Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.” Adam and Eve were commanded to multiply and replenish the earth. This was their great purpose along with raising these children to fear God. God placed two laws in the midst of the garden. There is the literal garden of Eden and then there is the figurative garden. Song of Solomon 5:1, “I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.” The garden is clearly the human body. 

So, we have two trees in the the midst of the garden. This speaks of two laws governing the reproduction of life on earth. One way produces death and the other way produces life. Now, this leads to the question. Which way produces life and which way produces death? Let’s read what brother Branham says in The Spoken Word Is the Original Seed.

She brought death through a bastard-born child, which we all are children of. But God came in the flesh, to give us another Birth, to bring us back to original sons and daughters of God. See? There you are. The Life sperm of Eve never happened. It never did. Why? She mingled it. Kept it away, instead of Adam coming to her for a bride, when the time appointed would be. Just like Christ will, would have come to the group. Christ would have come to His Church. He promised to do it. 127  God promised to multiply them, but they had to wait until God’s time. 128  That’s what’s the matter today. They don’t want to wait God’s time. They want to get something else. And so the devil has got the wisdom right there to give it to them, make an organization, be bigger than the rest of them.

There was a time appointed for Adam and Eve to come together and they were not to come together until that time. God commanded them to multiply and replenish the earth, but they had to wait until His time. They could not do it in their own way and in their own timing. This is key. 
 
And before they came together, Adam and Eve, she was pregnated with the corrupt seed from the serpent. And when Adam come to his wife, he found her pregnated to death. See? Death! How? Spiritually and physically dead.

Before Adam and Eve could come together sexually, Eve was beguiled and impregnated by the Serpent. This next quote is important in understanding what Adam’s sin was, we will continue on explaining this in more detail. 
 
Notice, the reason that animals couldn’t do it, a female animal, they were in the original creation. But the woman was not in that original creation. Now we’re going back to dig this up, then bring you right down to the modern day, in the Testament. 118  She is designed, alone, for filth and unclean living. A dog can’t, and no other female can. It’s just the woman that can. A dog or any other animals, once a year, and that for her babies; not for sexual pleasure, but for her babies. The old sow hog, the old slut dog, once a year, one moment, that’s for her babies. But a woman is designed for any time she desires. I’ve got some stuff crossed out here now; you can imagine the rest. A dog can’t; woman can. I hope that the Holy Spirit reveals to you the rest of this I crossed out here.

This seems like a very strange and negative quote, but it is key to understanding the original sin and in fact it is not negative at all. Brother Branham is not condemning sexual pleasure between a husband and wife. The Song of Solomon is full of this and does not condemn it at all. It is condemning the woman that is misusing and misplacing sexual pleasure outside of the will of God. Brother Branham also states that Eve was designed by Satan. Now, this cannot be understood in the sense that Eve was created by Satan. She was created by God, as a byproduct or a secondary result of the creation of Adam. Adam and Eve are ONE, Eve came out of Adam. But we see in Genesis 3, Satan through the Serpent began to design, or mold and shape Eve for his purposes. Design means to plan with a specific purpose or intention in mind. Satan began to work on Eve with a specific purpose or intention in mind, in order to inject a hybrid into the human race, using the animal most closely related to them, the Serpent. The Serpent was not a snake as I discuss in a previous article. He walked upright, spoke and reasoned just as a man. 
Back to our discussion on a woman vs. the animal kingdom. In the animal kingdom, the females ovulate once a year, as brother Branham stated. This varies, but in general, depending on the species, it is once a year. Scientists are demonstrating now that animals do in fact experience pleasure during mating, but they are doing it according to the time of life, when the female is in estrus, like the elk and the deer in the rut season. But it is the woman that can choose to have sexual relations any time for pleasure and is in estrus every 28 days instead of once a year. In an article from the BBC website it states, “Humans can copulate anytime during the reproductive cycle, unlike many other mammals that copulate right around ovulation.” 
Let’s start to tie this all together so we can come to an understanding. Notice this verse. 

Genesis 3:16  Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

God said that he would greatly multiply the woman’s sorrow, that is pain, AND conception. He multiplied her pain AND her conception. She would now have increased pain in childbearing and she would have increased conceptions. Before the fall God ordained that a woman bring forth children, but that “they had to wait until God’s time,” as brother Branham said. Now, after the fall her conceptions are multiplied or rather that her ability to conceive is multiplied to every 28 days. 

Adam came to his wife, Eve, who was impregnated by the Serpent, knowing his wife would be judged and destroyed, and took her to himself and redeemed her by becoming one with her sexually. They did not wait until God’s appointed time and not only that, but Adam was taking to himself a woman that became ONE with another man. 

In the curse of Adam we find a clue to the deeper understanding of Adam’s sin. 

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;

So God cursed the ground because of Adam’s sin. Instead of following the command of God to bring forth life in God’s time he listened to his wife, openly knowing it was sin. 1 Timothy 2:14, “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” So here the sin of having sex with his wife out of God’s appointed time and apart from God’s appointed way results in a curse on the earth. Notice what brother Branham wrote in the Church Ages book. 

Now I know in answering one question another one is apt to come up, and people ask me, “If Eve fell that way, what did Adam do, for God lays the blame on Adam?” That is simple. The Word of God is forever settled in heaven. Before one speck of stardust was made, that Word (God’s law) was there EXACTLY AS IT IS WRITTEN IN OUR BIBLE. Now the Word teaches us that if a woman leaves her husband and goes with another man she is an adulteress and is no longer married and the husband is not to take her back. That Word was true in Eden as it was true when Moses wrote it in the law. The Word can’t change. Adam took her back. He knew exactly what he was doing, but he did it anyway. She was a part of him, and he was willing to take her responsibility upon himself. He would not let her go. So Eve conceived by him. He knew she would. He knew exactly what would happen to the human race, and he sold the human race into sin that he might have Eve, for he loved her.
An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages (7 AGES Ch 3 – The Ephesian Church Age)
Rev. William Marrion Branham

The result then was the loss of immortality for both Adam and Eve. The moment they sinned they lost immortality and they realized now that they were naked and they felt guilty. Therefore they sought to cover themselves with aprons, or a loin cloth. This must have provided some relief to their sense of shame, but then the LORD God started to walk in the garden and they went and hid again. And they told God that they hid from him because they were naked. Even with the loin cloths on they felt naked before God. God took animals as a sin offering and killed it and provided a long coat for them both to wear to cover their nakedness. Then God states that man has now become like himself and the angels knowing both good and evil and in this condition he should not be allowed to partake of the tree of life and live forever. Therefore God placed an angel at the garden of Eden to prevent them from taking part of the tree of life. In fact, there is no place on earth where a man could not access due to an angel standing there to guard them from eating of the tree of life. The garden was a paradise and was heaven on earth. In the New Jerusalem heaven and earth will be one again. The garden of Eden was the place on earth where heaven and earth were one. God shut man out of his presence, he removed our access to that other dimension and he took away the principle of coming together in God’s appointed time and producing an immortal, spoken word, son or daughter of God. Now, all children are born from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. All possess both natures, a corrupted nature and also a nature that cries after God. But that corrupted nature overrides any sense of seeking after God and causes us to live and walk in total depravity.
