Serpent Seed Doctrine in the Plan of God

Serpent Seed Doctrine

Looking at God’s plan for the ages clearly demonstrates what in fact the original sin was between Adam and Eve. It shows us that the original sin is properly revealed in the serpent seed doctrine.

We read in various online blogs and wiki’s that this doctrine is somehow based upon poor biblical interpretation or even superstitions. I will debunk this idea in this article. This is based upon the solid foundation of the entire Bible, not merely one or two misinterpreted verses. You can see a short excerpt from a post on

What is the Serpent Seed doctrine?

Answer: The serpent seed is a belief based on poor biblical interpretation and superstition. It is a primary doctrinal resource for those who want to use …
The fact is that this is a false charge. In our article entitled, “What is the Original Sin?” we clearly demonstrate that this is based upon solid biblical understanding. This has nothing to do with a racist theology that blacks or whites or some specific nation are “serpent seed.” There is no conspiracy that a specific group of people is from the seedline of the serpent. Neither is the doctrine as those false cult chasers state that those that follow William Branham are the seed of God and those that reject him are serpent seed. In fact, according to the Bible, there is no literal serpent seed left on the earth. According to the Biblical understanding of this hidden truth, Eve had a relationship with the Serpent and produced Cain. The Serpent was not a snake, but clear biblical interpretation of the Hebrew term “nachash” for serpent and the context of Genesis 3 shows that he was an upright creature that walked on two feet and could reason and communicate. Eve was not shocked and repulsed by the fact that a snake was speaking to her. Read more about The Serpent (Nachash) of Genesis 3:1. The Nachash was the closest animal relative to the human race and like horses and donkeys could reproduce with the human race. Cain was born as a result of this union and was a hybrid. As time went on we find in Genesis 6 that the seed of Adam had mixed their genetics completely with the seed of Cain.
We find in the genetic makeup of mankind a mixture of the nature of God passed on to us through the genetics of Adam, the son of God and the nature of evil passed on to us through the genetics of Cain. The entire human race is tainted by the serpent seed. This wicked nature is passed on to us through our genetics and there is no pure serpent seed race.

A frequent objection to the serpent seed doctrine is that Genesis 4:1 states that Adam knew his wife Eve and produced Cain. I want to take a moment to point out the different tenses of the Hebrew words “knew” and “conceived” in Genesis 4:1. The Hebrew language has two tenses for verbs, perfect and imperfect. Perfect speaks of a completed action and imperfect speaks of an action in process. In Genesis 4:1 we read…
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
In Hebrew, there is no punctuation. We derive our English punctuation from the various verb tenses within the structure of the biblical text. The word knew is perfect tense signifying a completed action and the word conceived is an imperfect tense signifying an action in process. Moses is seeking to distinguish the two actions from each other. In Genesis 3 we have the first couple in the garden of Eden and then ejected from the garden of Eden. Genesis 4:1 begins our history outside of the garden. So, we learn that Adam had known his wife Eve, in the garden of Eden. The act of knowing his wife was committed prior to the condemnation and judgment of God in the garden of Eden. The verb conceived is in the imperfect tense, she was conceiving. This word in Hebrews means to become or to be pregnant. Since it is in the imperfect tense it speaks of the ongoing action of being pregnant. The act of being pregnant with Cain is distinguished from the act of Adam having known his wife. Knowing took place in the garden and being pregnant with Cain continued outside of the garden. Two distinct actions that are separate from each other. If I may put together a different way of explaining this from the Hebrew, “And Adam had known his wife. She was conceiving, and was bearing Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.”

How Is Serpent Seed Demonstrated In The Plan of God?

Throughout the Bible, we find an amazing and glorious truth. The marriage covenant is the great theme presented throughout the plan of God for the ages. He shows it first via his creation of Adam and Eve, husband and wife. It is a type of the great plan he has for the ages. It is God’s purpose to have a wife unified with him bringing forth fruit. He calls for Israel as a nation and calls her his wife. The sad theme in this marriage is the unfaithfulness of the wife.

Ezekiel 23:4-5  And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.  5  And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,

Israel was unfaithful to God and played the harlot. Did you see this biblical truth? Adam representing God and Eve representing Israel. Israel went aside to other gods and other nations to find their satisfaction and safety. They accepted seed from other lovers and not from their husband. We find this same theme in the New Testament, both from Paul and in the book of Revelation.

2 Corinthians 11:2-4  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.  3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  4  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Paul made an engagement between the church and Christ. He was afraid because the church might turn, as Israel did, and find another lover, just as Eve had. The concern was over spiritual adultery against her espoused husband, Jesus Christ. The pattern that he bases this great burden and concern upon is Adam and Eve. He is deeply concerned that just as Eve committed adultery against her husband with the Serpent so the church would be deceived spiritually and committed spiritual fornication against the Lord Jesus Christ by accepting a different version of Christ, the Gospel, and the Spirit. It is clear that the apostle Paul was a believer in the serpent seed doctrine.

Then we find that this burden in the heart of Paul came to fruition. The church began to drift away from the truth of Christ, the Gospel, and the Spirit and embraced the false teachings of Catholicism and Orthodox churches, thus committing fornication against their husband the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, we find that there will be a Bride, she will come out of those antichrist systems and she will embrace the truth that Paul preached and wrote about. God will declare that through his grace, the Bride is without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.

  1. Adam marries Eve – she commits adultery with the serpent
  2. God marries Israel – Israel commits adultery
  3. Christ marries the Church – she commits spiritual fornication and becomes mystery Babylon

One of the great themes of the Bible is a charge to men and women to stay sexually faithful to each other. God hates adultery and hates divorce. God takes great pains to show this and to show the results of fornication and adultery. The covenant relationship between God and his people is shown as a marriage and unfaithfulness to this covenant relationship on the part of his people is called adultery or spiritual fornication. It all started with the fall of mankind through the faithlessness of Eve in committing adultery against Adam. The Bible starts with this theme and goes on throughout it with the same theme. If you cannot see serpent seed now then I’m not sure you will ever see it. I ask one thing after you have read this and read the attached articles. Pray and ask God to reveal the truth to you. God desires to lead you into all truth. If this is the truth then there is nothing to fear about it. God bless you.
