In Genesis 3:15, Did God Say Satan Has Literal Children Here On Earth?







Did A Snake Really Speak To Eve? Does Satan's Literal Seed Is Present On Earth?

Question: Do you know who are literally Satan's seed here on earth? God said in Genesis 3:15 that Satan has seed, literal children. Do you agree that it is literal, what is your take on it?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus wonderful name!

"Now the serpent was more subtile than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made." Genesis 3:1

The word "serpent" came from the Hebrew word "nachash" and has the following meanings: "hiss", that is, "whisper a (magic) spell"; "a divine enchanter"; "use enchantment"; "learn by experience". "Subtile" is not just cunning but also wise and intelligent, having a knowledge of the understanding of life as well.

The Serpent was the highest of all the animals and was the last to be created before Adam. OF ALL THE ANIMALS HE WAS THE ONLY SPECIES THAT COULD TALK I BELIEVE! If the Serpent does exist today he certainly would still be able to talk. Some may argue that he was able to talk because he was possessed by Satan just like the demon-possessed man at Gadarenes (Luk.8:26-33), or just like the ass which God used to speak to Balaam (Numbers 22:28-30), Satan might have done the same with the Serpent. Just like Balaam's ass speaking was a divine miracle, the serpent speaking can be a diabolic miracle. But note the fact that it was the Serpent who beguiled Eve, and not Satan. So, it was not Satan speaking through the Serpent. And who did God judge — Satan or the Serpent? Both, which shows that the responsibility of failing to keep God's commandments and rebel against the authority of God also rested on the natural serpent as well as the spiritual serpent Satan who induced his thought in it through negotiations with it.

Theologian Henry C. Thiessen comments:

‘… the serpent is neither a figurative description of Satan, nor is it Satan in the form of a serpent. The real serpent was the agent in Satan’s hand. This is evident from the description of the reptile in Genesis 3:1 and the curse pronounced upon it in Gen 3:14 [… upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy Life ].’

A further tie-up between the serpent of Genesis 3 and Satan, or the devil, is given in Revelation 12:9 and Rev 20:2:

‘And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world’

The word ‘Satan" means ‘adversary’—primarily to God, secondarily to men; the term ‘devil’ signifies ‘slanderer’ of God to men, and of men to God.’ Thus we know that Satan was placed b
y God initially as a covering angel to guard men on earth physically and have spiritual over sight of executing God's will over their lives (Job 1:7; Psa 91:11), but he failed miserably because of pride which caused his downfall. Instead of him, Jesus took the job of a mediator between God and men, and has been continuing faithfully in this work for the last two thousand years (1 Tim 2:5; Heb 4:14-16).

Satan entered the body of Judas, and also the legion of demons of Gerasenes entered a herd of pigs which ran down a steep place into the sea, and therefore we can know that once a demon or any evil fallen angel gets the permission of God or man who is in His image (Mark 5:13; Gen 1:26, 27; Psa 82:6; John 10:34-37), these spiritual evil beings has the ability to indwell either human bodies or animal bodies (John 13:26-27; Mark 5:1-13). It is therefore proper for us to conclude that Satan appropriated and used the body of a specific serpent on this occasion to carry out his subtle purpose of tempting Eve to sin. The Serpent no longer exists today because he had been cursed and transformed into a snake -- a member of the lowest of the animal kingdom because of the curse of God upon it for its sin of causing the fall of all humans in to sin through Eve. The name Serpent has thus become synonymous with the name Satan, as Satan had complete control over the serpent once the serpent gave place willingly for Satan to use him, after which its reasoning power was no more; that was why he could be so persuasive that Eve succumbed to his seduction (2 Cor 11:3). In the same way, Satan has lost his reasoning power which he had in the spiritual realm by connecting to the infinite wisdom of God to know the future course of action for each and every situation (Ezek 28:12, 17, 18, 19), thus was caught off guard and ineffective against the act of the Cross of Jesus Christ, which he did as a act of aberration by his limited wisdom that was actually foreordained by God as a destruction to his own authority and power, of which if he had know, he would have never done it at all (1 Cor 2:7-8).

Concerning his present abode, it is incorrect to think of Satan as the ‘ruler of Hell’, as the Bible makes no such reference. Rather, Jesus called him ‘the prince of this world’ (John 12:31: 14:30; 16:11), and the Bible also calls him ‘the god of this world’ [or ‘age’]' (2 Corinthians 4:4), and ‘the prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2). It speaks of Satan ‘going to and fro in the earth, and … walking up and down in it’ (Job 2:2; 1 Peter 5:8), and of his activity ‘in the heavenly places’ [or ‘realms’] (Ephesians 6:11–12).

Here is what Gen 3:14-15 says, "14 So the LORD God said to the serpent:“Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”".

The Lord God spoke to the serpent this above judgment, when Eve pointed to God that it was the serpent who deceived Eve in to being disobedient to the Word of God. Was it a real serpent? Initially the serpent was the most crafty and cunning than any beast of the field that the Lord God has made (Gen 3:1), thus we know that the serpent was a literal one as we have already discussed. When God created the serpent it must have stood straight on its legs, only after God's curse, it began to move crawling on its belly and eat dust. And even the scientific community has researched and found out that the serpents had bones that must have supported it to stand on its legs. As the curse of God made the serpent to crawl, before the curse came upon the serpent it must have been a sight to watch when it would have walked in a grandiose grandeur before all created things.

We know it was the literal serpent that deceived Eve, but the reality was a evil sinful fallen being from heaven who negotiated with the serpent, and came within its body to actually speak the deceptive words through it against God and His Word to finally make humans also fall in to sin. The Bible calls this spiritual evil being as "Satan" "the great Dragon" and "the serpent of old" who was the leader of the heavenly choir before his fall from heaven because of pride (1 Tim 3:6; Ezek 28:13; Rev 12:9, 3-4), and it also says that one third of the angels were convinced by him to follow him and form a separate government on earth over humans by making them be deceived by sin and innate sin nature within, thus sin entered the world through one man sin, and death came through sin and spread to all humans (Rom 6:16; 5:12). Thus human have rebelled against God and have got separated from him through the spiritual death, which is God separating himself from the spirit of humans. But then God's abundant grace and life was show to humans in abundance just after that when God pronounced the first Messianic promise against Satan for the well being of all humans saying, "I will put enmity between you [i.e. Satan] and the woman [i.e. her descendants], and between your seed [i.e. Antichrist and the people who are born in natural first Adam] and her Seed [i.e. Jesus Christ who is the woman's seed and the people born in Christ Jesus the Messiah who is the last Adam who had come]; He shall bruise your head [i.e. to make you wisdom less and powerless on the cross (1 Cor 2:7-8)], and you shall bruise His heel [i.e. to try to prevent him from walking on the earth anymore (John 11:50; 18:14)]" (Gen 3:15).

We know already all the humans who are the natural descendants of the first woman Eve always dislike, hate and consider the natural serpent as enemy because of the poison it carries, and the very curse of God on it that makes it move on its belly and eat the dust in their nest and burrow. No humans want a poisonous serpent to live within their homes because they consider it to be their enemy. So in the natural realm of literal serpent, God's prophecy is being fulfilled. In the spiritual realm of spiritual serpent Satan, natural fleshly unsaved people always hate the spiritual people of faith who follow Jesus Christ the seed of the woman. Woman has no seed in all history except in the case of Mary the virgin who gave birth to the child Jesus the Christ by the Holy Spirit supernaturally (Matt 1:18; Luke 1:35). Satan's seed is the one who will come and is popularly know as Antichrist, who will come in the specific time of the end as the Bible predicts. But the same Antichrist nature which is the seed of Satan has already been acting for thousands of years through many many unsaved people right from the days of Cain to the time of Jesus Christ to the present time (Gen 4:9, 15, 16, 23-24; John 5:43; 1 Peter 4:7; Matt 24:4-5; 1 Tim 4:1; 2 Thess 2:3; 1 John 2:18-19; 3:12-15; 2 John 7). Though Satan incarnate will be Antichrist, ever since the fall of Adam in to sin all the unsaved have the same potential to be the seed of Satan because of the sin nature within them.

Praise the Lord that God never gave up us humans to be lost in sin, but He himself extended his own hand to again invite humans with hope through faith in the Messiah who is to come, and who will in time bring all humans to God. We know that Jesus Christ the Son of God came in to this world before two thousand years because of God's love towards humans, and then lived a sinless life and then died for all their sins, so that now we all who believe in Jesus Christ will not die but will have eternal life everlasting (John 3:16). O what a assurance and peace!

Literally Satan's seed does not mean Satan have got interbred with humans looking at the beauty of the women, and then because of it certain people are considered as giants who are of Satan's seed. No no no, all such theories are baloney and falsehood propagated out of context and away from the focal Scriptural point of view, in reality the spiritual entities can only be able to posses people and make their thinking evil and corrupted because of the nature of Satan's seed which is innate sin nature within them (Gen 6:1-8). The Bible speaks about our enemy Satan coming and sowing tares of unbelievers among the wheat of believers who are sons of God and slipping away quietly (Gal 3:26), and God allowing them to grow together till one day he will choose to collect the tares of unbelievers who are the sons of the wicked one, and thrown them in to burning hell and gather the wheat of believers in to His barn in heaven (Matt 13:24-30, 38, 40, 41-42, 43). So Satan seed are those who are unsaved and do practice the fallen nature of sin (1 John 3:4, 6, 8-9, 10). One thing we can be sure that angels cannot marry and beget children which Jesus clearly revealed to all (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:35–36). Apostle Peter and Jude said many of the evil angels were bound in prison waiting for judgment of God. The reason they were bound by the time that Peter and Jude wrote (the first few decades after Christ’s Resurrection), is because they had sinned in Noah’s day (1 Peter 3:20). And what was their sin? Among other things, they left their proper abode of living in the heavenly places, but chose to move in to humans and posses men and women to corrupt their thinking to make them think evil in every intent of their thoughts [Note: No where the apostles claim that these angels had married women but in context to Gen 6:5, they were saying that all their intent of the thoughts were corrupted by demonic possession who were initially made by God not to possess them but to guard and cover them (Psa 91:11; Luke 4:10)] (Jude 6, 2 Peter 2:4, Genesis 6:1–4, 5). Let us not read our own ideas and puranas in to the Scripture, rather let us learn to see the Scripture through the eyes of the Scripture to read it right and divide the truth correctly (2 Tim 2:15). I have seen many story tellers wrongly interpret the above doctrine to mislead the people of God from healthy doctrines that edify the souls in to unhealthy sick erroneous doctrines which lead these precious people of God in to destruction. So let us avoid it. Beware of false doctrines of the end, these are demonic doctrines promoted by those with deceiving spirits!

So as far as I know from the Scriptures, the literal seed of Satan on earth are none other than sinful men with the sin nature of Adam who are not born again (John 3:3; Matt 13:38-39). Jesus told bluntly to the unsaved rebellious men during his ministry time, who lived by the first Adam nature of sin as, "you are of your father the devil, and the desire of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." (John 8:44). Also Paul the apostle talked of the unbelievers as those under the influence of "the devil--the commander of the powers in the unseen world who is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God." (Eph 2:2, NLT). Pride is rightly considered to be "the father of all sin," as Satan fell from heaven due to pride, and through him it spread to all men who are his children (Isa 14:12, 13-14), and when the word children is used in the sense "of showing the characteristics of" or "that which is descended from," it is a symbolism and not literally interpreted (Job 41:34). Those who are the children of Satan show his characteristics (John 8:44).

Just like God has children who are saved from sin, Satan has children too who are unsaved and live in sin and do his bidding. These tares of uselessness to God are used by Satan to contaminate the good environment of peace and righteousness of God on earth, these are the sons of Satan (Matt 13:38; Luke 2:14). Going one step higher we see that Satan not only has sons, he has servants, ministers, even apostles who "transform themselves into ministers of righteousness" and say the right words from the Word of God like Satan did in the garden of Eden (Gen 3:1), but are evil who can only be exposed by their evil character and their false teaching (Matt 7:15, 20; 12:35; Luke 6:43-45), through rightly dividing the Word of God by the help of the Holy Spirit who helps us find the wrong by bringing up Scriptures that are also written again in the Bible that oppose the one sided doctrines of such insidious men and women (2 Cor 11:13-15; 2 Tim 2:15; Matt 4:1-7; Eph 6:17). God says that such false prophets and teachers are allowed in the Church and in the world to prove and establish those who are the true seed of God, and separate them from the false seed of Satan (1 Cor 11:19; 1 John 2:19).

I believe that the Antichrist will be nearly a incarnation of Satan because he will literally give all his power, throne and great authority to this man by sitting inside this man to possess all his faculties to rule over the world for at least three and a half years as God has already appointed (Rev 13:2, 4-5). Satan entered Judas the betrayer and then he did betray Jesus Christ (Luke 22:3; John 13:27), in the same way once when Satan enters Antichrist, then he will promote Satanic working of lawlessness in all the earth through all power, signs, and lying wonders with all unrighteous deception among the unsaved as they did not receive the truth of Jesus Christ to be saved, thus God Himself will send them strong delusion to believe the lie of Satan, that they all who did not believe the truth of the Bible and had pleasure in unrighteousness may all be condemned (John 5:43; 2 Cor 11:4; 2 Thess 2:9, 10, 11, 12). God will allow the Satanic trinity of Satan, his son Antichrist and the false prophet to co-ordinate among themselves and control the world through three unclean spirits like frogs, which are spirits of demons performing signs to gather the kings of the earth and all their subjects against God Almighty in the great day of the battle of Armageddon, which will be the final war before the thousand year rule of Jesus Christ in this present earth (Rev 16:13, 14, 16; Rev 20:4-6). Antichrist is the son of hell who will be sold out to fulfill Satan's bidding just like Judas Iscariot, therefore the title “son of perdition” is used twice in the New Testament, first in John 17:12 and again in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The phrase simply means “man doomed to destruction” and is not reserved for any one individual but collectively against all the unsaved who do Satan's bidding and fulfill his plan for their lives. First it was applied by Jesus to Judas who chose the Satan's path of lust for more money and betrayal of truth and true friendship of Jesus for the filthy lucre (John 12:6; 13:27-30; John 18:5; Matt 26:14-16), then this title was applied by Paul to the "man of lawlessness" Antichrist who will choose to bid for Satan's purpose to be fulfilled at the end of time when he will sit in the temple of God to desecrate it, and will finally be doomed to destruction by God in the final battle of Armageddon (2 Thess 2:3). So finally my conclusion is that the sons of Satan or the seed of Satan are those who symbolically exhibit Satan's nature of lies and oppose the truth, and those who fulfill the whims and fancies of Satan's desire through their unsaved life on earth.

If we are regenerated children of God and led by His Spirit, we will exhibit His character and spiritual image of Jesus Christ to prove to the world that we are indeed the true children of God (Rom 8:14-17). Glory to God!

Much Blessings....
