Is my title query preposterous? Whether it is, how is it extra preposterous than to assume that the literal consuming of a specific fruit from a specific tree, albeit forbidden by The Lord, could be thought of that evil, that depraved, that Adam and Eve ought to lose their alternative of a continued bodily life in paradise in The Backyard and, with it, entry to the Tree of Life and Everlasting Life? If a toddler in our care have been to not observe our instruction for the primary time would we lash out with a extreme punishment at their first mistake? Clearly not, so why did The Lord punish our unique dad and mom so severely for consuming the flawed sort of ‘apple’? OK, I do know it would not say apple, but it surely would possibly simply as properly say it. Subsequently, does this obvious trivial mistake and the punishment that follows make any sense or, in different phrases, does the punishment match the crime? One would have thought not, as a result of, if we take it a step additional and settle for the Biblical narrative as symbolic for one thing else, then sure it does make sense. Certainly, we are able to then assume, with out a lot doubt, that Adam and Eve’s sin was so severe, so heinous, that The Lord had no choice however to severely punish and banish our unique dad and mom from The Backyard. This then leaves us with the query of what sort of wickedness or sin(s) may it have been that might warrant such a extreme punishment?
Up till some time in the past I used to be of the thoughts that Adam and Eve’s sin was only a easy act of dangerous judgement or a flawed alternative, however writings I’ve found simply currently have thrown a large spanner into the works of my earlier understanding of their unique sin. My understanding, too, not helped a lot by what’s written within the King James Bible. Nevertheless, all the time keep in mind, that as believers, our understanding isn’t ours, it is the understanding we’re on condition that issues and The Lord doesn’t give us whole understanding and information or, originally of our stroll with Him. It takes years of research and far ready on Him. Having clarified that little apart, let’s write the essential verses right here in order that we are able to see for ourselves what the Holy Scriptures truly say:
Genesis 3:15 And I’ll put enmity between thee and the lady, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Emphasis mine)
This verse is most necessary in that it influences the entire of this research, for it mentions two seeds. Now what are these two “seeds”, as a result of earlier than we transfer on we should be clear in our minds what they signify and, after all, it’s totally straight ahead. Most readers will know what the Biblical phrase ‘seed’ means, on this context, however to verify let’s use one other instance or two in order that there isn’t a ambiguity or confusion:
Genesis 9:8-9 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9 And I, behold, I set up my covenant with you, and together with your seed after you.
Genesis 15:3 And Abram stated, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my home is mine inheritor.
Sturdy’s Hebrew Ref: H2233 seed = zera or zeh’-rah
From H2232; seed; figuratively fruit, plant, sowing time, posterity: – X carnally, little one, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time.
In order we are able to plainly see, the phrase ‘seed’ refers to offspring and if we seek advice from Sturdy’s Concordance for additional proof we are going to discover that the Hebrew phrase for ‘seed’ in Genesis 3:15 is the exact same as in Genesis 9:9 and 15:3. OK, so if we return to Genesis 3:15 we are able to see that the Lord goes to place enmity between these two very completely different seeds or strains, however who’s the Lord chatting with? Let’s go there now:
Genesis 3:14 And the LORD God stated unto the serpent, As a result of thou hast carried out this, thou artwork cursed above all cattle, and above each beast of the sector; upon thy stomach shalt thou go, and mud shalt thou eat all the times of thy life:
There we’ve got it; the Lord is chatting with the Satan, Devil, that serpent and arch-deceiver also referred to as the destroyer, the adversary and on this occasion the arch-seducer, for, no doubt, one of many two seeds talked about right here is his seed. Discover, too, the phrase “as a result of thou hast carried out this”. From that we are able to simply deduce and know that Devil truly did one thing and the time period ‘doing one thing’, most of the time, refers to a bodily motion, not simply an ‘motion’ of sitting idly by on the sidelines attractive, goading or frightening as an exuberant spectator.
So what does all this imply, for we’re very positively coping with a bodily seed that belongs to the Satan? In flip, this now beggars the query, how can a spirit being have bodily sexual relations with a lady? Nicely, the one verse within the Holy Scriptures we are able to depend on or flip to for any proof to this occasion is in Genesis as soon as extra:
Genesis 6:1-2 And it got here to cross, when males started to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters have been born unto them, 2 That the sons of God noticed the daughters of males that they have been truthful; and so they took them wives of all which they selected.
Who have been these “sons of God” right here that took the descendants or daughters of Adam for wives? Nicely they will solely be one factor, they have been fallen angels or angels that went astray and left their first property as described in Jude 6
Jude 1:6 And the angels which stored not their first property, however left their very own habitation, he hath reserved in eternal chains beneath darkness unto the judgment of the nice day. (Emphasis mine)
The necessary phrases of this verse are ‘stored not’, ‘first property’ and ‘habitation’. The phrases ‘stored not’ imply they didn’t preserve a guard or failed to carry as treasured their Religious inheritance or property, i.e. to take care of any worth upon their Religious substance and the honour bestowed upon them as Spirit beings. As an alternative they took it upon themselves to decide on the decrease order of the bodily or the bottom degree of bodily males. This implies they despised their inheritance or first property and positioned extra worth upon human fleshy needs and, remember, these daughters have been ladies within the fallen situation – they weren’t saved. These angels handled with contempt their manifestly greater order that The Lord had blessed them with, i.e. their ‘first property’ – their excessive place. Not solely that, they gave up their residence as properly or their superior habitation; very reckless and silly certainly. A lot so, it finally value them their freedom as a result of the Lord incarcerated them in darkness, the place they’re to at the present time and the place they are going to stay till the Final Nice Day on the finish of the Millennium or the tip of The Lord’s one thousand yr reign on this earth as King of kings.
Now this brings us to an necessary difficulty. This wickedness was not a one off, this had all occurred earlier than, and it was a observe on from the sooner wickedness of their chief, Devil the Satan, in any other case generally known as Sammael within the different writings I discussed earlier. He set the instance in The Backyard and these fallen angels adopted in his footsteps, and their actions have been a repeat of his wickedness. So what was this wickedness? Fairly merely, it was the seduction of Eve. We are able to then add within the cuckolding of Adam or probably even the sodomising of Adam – we have no idea all the main points. What we do know, although, is that the Satan contaminated their Godly union, which up till that time had not been consummated. Adam and Eve found the sexual act by perversion and thru lust and nothing however lust. This occasion was a compounding occasion, as a result of after the Satan had had his evil means with Eve he then, by Eve, inspired Adam to take her afterwards (he ate of the fruit too) thereby lowering her to the standing of a sexual object, an adulteress or probably worse, a promiscuous slut or unpaid whore. This, in impact, was the primary pornographic act – the primary threesome; using the lady’s physique for nothing however egocentric sexual gratification. There was no love on this occasion, and it was the primary sexual act on earth between a person and a lady, however solely after she had been defiled by one other. This, too, is how they knew they have been bare and coated themselves with leaves and why, too, they hid from The Lord in The Backyard. They coated their sexual areas, they have been laden with disgrace and guilt – they felt soiled and contaminated. Moreover, it was this act that gave them the information of excellent and evil, not by the literal consuming of an ‘apple’, the fruit is pure symbolism. Not solely that, if we expect the literal consuming of fruit from the flawed tree could make us really feel soiled, unclean and shameful what sort of fruit may that be. OK, we may and would really feel responsible for having not adopted The Lord’s directions, however not soiled and ashamed. No, there is just one act that might have had that sort of impact on a beforehand harmless man and girl and that act is the promiscuous, lustful, loveless, perverted sexual act.
OK, so we now have the proof that exhibits this depraved occasion happened, however the place does this lead us? Fairly merely, again to the 2 seeds, the 2 seeds that produced two offspring – Cain and Abel. One little one was of the Satan’s seed and the opposite was of Adam’s seed. How do we all know this? Not simple, as a result of the King James Bible just isn’t that useful, so we’ve got to look elsewhere, however the place? Nicely, earlier than I do that allow’s copy the KJV verse right here, first, to analyse what it says:
Gen 4:1-2 And Adam knew Eve his spouse; and he or she conceived, and naked Cain, and stated, I’ve gotten a person from the LORD. 2 And she or he once more naked his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, however Cain was a tiller of the bottom.
Now, primarily based upon the proof that I’ve revealed from the Holy Scriptures, Genesis 4:1 appears to learn like a whole contradiction of the earlier verses. We all know there are to be two seeds, however this verse appears to be like as if it is saying that Cain is Adam’s son and Abel is Adam’s son too, and never solely that, however that Cain was a present to Eve from The Lord himself no much less. Now the place have the 2 seeds gone, as a result of if Cain and Abel are each Adam’s sons then they will solely be of the one seed, for they’re each of Adam’s seed, so what is going on on on this verse? Nicely we all know do not we, the true proof has been written out of the narrative by the translators. Now there is a shock, and why would they do this!? They might do it as a result of it will imply that they must admit that there are specific beings we stay with on this earth which might be of a selected demonic race. It will additionally imply their having to confess what I’ve acknowledged above, that Eve had intercourse with Satan and produced this race by way of Cain from that evil illegitimate union. The factor is, who’re these beings and the way can we establish them? Nicely to start with we’ve got received to familiarize yourself with an entire load of stuff happening right here in Genesis 4:1 and it’ll require one other article to cowl it, so stick with it of us.
