(THE SERPENT SEED)
Radio Broadcast #22
I am on a very controversial subject called "The Original Sin," and I wish to continue on this same course this morning highlighting some of the greater facts of the original sin. Our emphasis is upon this scripture in the fifteenth verse of the third chapter of Genesis, which reads: "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
We spoke on the subject of "The Original Sin" and "what really happened in the Garden of Eden" last Monday, and the question was brought up: "What really happened in the Garden of Eden?" since many hold the conception that it was an apple that Eve ate in the Garden of Eden, together with her husband, and thus causing all the problems in the world. Since the mysteries of God are revealed today, we have another view of scripture which is totally contrary to what was taught throughout the ages in organizations, and denominations, and we sufficiently proved by the scripture on our last Monday's message that the fruit could not have been an apple nor an apricot, and that it was definitely Adultery that was committed between the Serpent and Eve, and we still hold those views and we would not back up.
These things were hid from the foundation of the world; these mysteries of God, and they were revealed today by the ministry of Malachi 4:5-6, an Elijah that was to come to the Earth before the burning. Also Revelation 10:7 declares: "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared unto his servants the prophets." and this is so strange to so-called Christians, Bible schools, Organizations and the theologians, and it is supposed to be strange even because it was a mystery that was hid for many generations but it is now made known.
It was so closely hidden in the scriptures that even the theologians failed to understand the literal Scriptures in Genesis 3:15 which declares that the serpent did actually have a seed. I am stating this morning upon the basis of the scripture that the serpent had a seed. This is a doctrine that was preached by William Branham, God's servant and prophet, even because it is a Bible doctrine.
He challenged the world upon this doctrine, and we hereby challenge any Bible expositor, Superintendent, Organization, any wise and prudent who thinks that he has the knowledge to unravel the scripture, to prove to us that it was an apple or an apricot or some other fruit that Eve ate that caused all the problems in the world.
Common sense could tell us that an apple did not cause the problem because nowhere in the Scriptures says, "Thou shall not eat an apple or apricot", and when they ate that fruit we realize that it caused them to understand that they were both naked. It helped them to understand that they should hide their nakedness and so they were hiding from Almighty God in the Garden of Eden.
Therefore that was a strange fruit, and if a fruit could cause you to realize that you were naked, then it's a strange fruit. So we concluded in our last little message that definitely it could not have been an apple. It was none other than Adultery in the Garden of Eden, sexual indulgence between the serpent and Eve. You definitely wouldn't hear that in your Organization and in your Bible Schools, even because the mysteries are now revealed by a God-sent prophet anointed by the Spirit of Elijah called William Branham, of whom we are not ashamed.
They have gone on for many generations preaching about the woman's seed and all of them are confident, and they are absolutely correct to teach that the woman's seed was our Lord Jesus Christ, but they are silent, up to today, on the basic fact of the Serpent seed, where the very scripture in Genesis 3 is declaring that there was indeed a serpent seed and there was a woman's seed. Of course the woman's seed was our Lord Jesus Christ through Mary; a virgin did conceive and bring forth a son and he went to the cross. We as believers of this message stand in defense of this doctrine because it is a Bible doctrine and there is no division amongst the followers of Malachi 4 on this doctrine. As believers of this End-time message, we fully cooperate, we fully believe and we fully support the Bible, and support this doctrine even because it is proven in the Bible.
This fruit caused Eve and Adam to realize that they were naked, and furthermore God never cursed their mouths, neither did He say, "thou shalt not eat apples", but He cursed human reproduction. Right there He said that a woman would bring forth children in pain and sorrow, and the Lord was going to multiply their conceptions. He cursed the womb of the woman and He never even cursed Adam. He cursed the ground for Adam's sake.
However, our attention is centralized this morning upon the fact of that seed called the serpent's recorded in Genesis 3:15. The serpent indeed had a seed. Where did that seed come from? I am confident, as well as all that preach this message throughout the land, having heard the revelation of God that came today through the mighty prophet, are all convinced that the original sin in the Garden of Eden produced the seed of the serpent, and the original seed of the serpent was none other than Cain.
If we would look carefully into the scripture, we would see that even the "Tree" that was called the "Tree of the knowledge of good and evil" was not a natural tree even because trees do not have knowledge. Which tree upon the earth has knowledge of good and of evil? Therefore not even that tree in the Garden of Eden was a natural fruit tree, and so could not bear a natural fruit. Of course it could not bear, it was a spiritual tree and that spiritual tree was Lucifer, the devil, Satan, God's adversary, and he had the knowledge of good and evil, and he demon-possessed the serpent (having this knowledge) and came to Eve.
Notice when she partook of that tree the kind of knowledge she received! She received the knowledge that she was naked. She received the knowledge of how to bring forth children into the world by pains and sorrows, and up to today that still stands. So Cain was the original seed of the serpent, and when God cursed the serpent, that seed was already in Eve's womb. She was pregnant for the serpent.
People have the idea about the serpent being a snake, but the Bible never said the serpent was a snake. The Bible called him a beast, and the Bible called him the most subtle of all beasts. Therefore that beast was a special class of a beast and that is the "missing link" between man and chimpanzee. He was higher than the Ape, higher than the chimpanzee, almost a man. He resembled a man in all respect, and his seed did co-mingle with the human seed.
Somebody might want to make an argument today that the "animal's seed does not co-mingle with the seed of the human race." Of course, it does not do that today, but the beast that was in the Garden of Eden was so close to the human race that his seed did co-mingle, and that is why science cannot find the "missing link" between man and the chimpanzee, even because the serpent was that creature, and only when God cursed him did he go upon his belly. We noticed that Cain was the direct seed of the serpent but he came closer to the human race, and he had that knowledge as well as Eve and Adam who inherited that knowledge from eating from that tree.
Therefore, since that "Tree" was not a natural tree, then the fruit could not be a natural fruit. Oh the wise man caught that revelation!! And in the book of Proverbs he said, "The adulteress woman eateth and wipeth her mouth and said I have done no evil." Here the wise man is bringing out a sex act: adultery as a fruit, as food, emotional food at least, and the adulteress woman, she eateth and said, "I have done no evil", and that is what Eve did in the Garden of Eden; she looked upon the fruit and it was pleasant to the eyes. She went to lusting and after that, she put forth her hand and did taste the fruit, and she did take the fruit and partook of the fruit.
She did not even realize that she had done evil until God came down. So the Original Seed of the Serpent was Cain. He was the progenitor of all other seeds of the serpent that was to follow. This sounds horrible, it sounds incredible, but the mysteries of God are revealed today, showing that Cain's seed traveled up until Judas was manifested, and then Judas being a direct offspring of Cain rejected the Lord and sold him for thirty pieces of silver. Judas Iscariot was the one that betrayed our Lord in order to fulfill the prophecy of Genesis 3:15, that Christ will bruise the head of the serpent, but then the serpent seed will bruise his heel.
How is it that the theologians don't tell us about the bruising of the heel of our Lord by the serpent seed? They tell us all about Christ destroying the works of the enemy and stamping upon the head of the serpent, but they tell us nothing of the seed of the serpent bruising the heel of our Lord Jesus. I am here this morning to tell you that it was revealed from the mysteries of God by Revelation 10:7. What took place there, is that the seed of the serpent that was going to make war against the woman and her seed, traveled up to Judas, and Judas Iscariot being an offspring of the original seed of the serpent, betrayed our Lord and sent Him to the cross.
. That was the bruising of the heel of Jesus Christ, but then in turn our Lord Jesus Christ died on Calvary and gained full power and full control over Satan, and He in turn bruised his head, and He said, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." That is, by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, the bruising of the heel of the woman's seed (our Lord Jesus Christ) was when Judas sent him to Calvary, and the bruising of the head of the serpent was when Jesus prevailed over hell, death and the grave. Yes, I believe that these things are true, and any reasonable thinking man, anybody that search the scriptures and wants to be right can follow the same pattern and see that Our Lord Jesus Christ was the woman's seed and Cain was the seed of the serpent.
How dare can you theologians; How dare can you preachers; How dare can you great, wise and prudent deny the serpent seed and condemn William Branham because he brought forth that revelation of the serpent seed. Yes, there did exist a serpent seed in the womb of Eve, and it is clearly declared in your Bible in Genesis 3:15 that the woman did have a seed. Nobody could deny that, and the seed was Cain through the pregnancy that Eve received from the serpent, and the serpent was demon-possessed by Lucifer himself for his mischievous work. There we are!
How many people might try to make a contention on the subject that I am preaching because I know that this is highly controversial, but I believe that there are thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people right here in this country and the Caribbean, and throughout the world that knows that it could not have been an apple that caused all this trouble and all the hospitals and all the wars and all the sicknesses and all the wickedness that go on upon the face of the earth. They know better that an apple could not have caused that. There is not one scripture in the Bible where God said, "Thou shalt not eat apples."
If an apple caused that, then that's a dangerous fruit, and nobody should eat apples; but that is totally ignorant of the clergymen; totally ignorant of full-gospel preachers; total ignorance of the organizations, and many of them might want to make a contention on this subject and try to quote Genesis 4:1. Genesis 4:1 says, "Eve brought forth a child and his name was Cain", and she said "I have gotten a man from the Lord." Was he a man from the Lord? The Bible already declared in Genesis 3:15 that it was the seed of the serpent; and she did eat the fruit which was adultery she committed and got pregnant, and then Eve, in her deceived condition, now trying to cover up her wicked deeds in the Garden of Eden said, "I have gotten a man from the Lord." If you take that literally Mr. Theologian, was Cain a man from the Lord? He was the first murderer. He denied the revelation of Abel and slew his brother. He was a rebel to Almighty God. Are you calling that a man from the Lord? No, he was a man from the devil. He was a man of the serpent. He was a masterpiece of the devil in that Satan could find a higher creature towards man that he could demon possess.
The reason that Cain behaved in such a manner is because he was the son of the serpent and the Lord allowed Lucifer to demon-possess him. Even when he brought his gifts to the altar, he had his own religion. He had his own revelations. He had his own ideas what will please God. Yes, and God rejected his sacrifice, and when God rejected his sacrifice, never did a man behave so rebellious towards Almighty God; that was Cain. Are you calling that a man of the Lord? No. He was a man of the devil. He was a murderer. He was a jealous fellow. He was a hateful fellow. He was a rebellious fellow. The only person that was rebellious in that manner was the devil. Therefore the devil was inside of Cain and he did not have any divine revelation of what kind of sacrifice to bring to the altar, even because he never understood what really happened in the Garden of Eden.
He didn't realize who was his father even, and he believed like some of the theologians today; he believed like some of the Bible schools; he believed like some of the great seminaries today and went forth and brought the fruits (no doubt he had an apple on top), an apricot second. Yes. He brought forth all the fruits of the earth thinking that, that would please God because his mother told him a lie that she ate an apple, and that lie probably traveled up until today. It was not. The woman did not want to tell him the truth, that she committed adultery with the serpent, and probably she made an excuse that she ate an apple, and so his offsprings still believe today.
Yes, while Eve said that she have gotten a man from the Lord, I want to declare to you that the Bible, a man speaking by divine revelation called ST. John the divine, and in 1 John 3:12 declared by divine revelation the same thing that William Branham declared, the same thing that all preachers around the world declares, the same thing that all believers of this message declares to be the truth, and that is, "Cain, was of that wicked one." Eve said that he was a man from the Lord but John, the divine, a man with a revelation of the antichrist; he said, "Cain was of that wicked one and slew his brother, and wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil and his brother's righteous."
There we are my friends. Compare those two scriptures: Genesis 4:1 and 1 John3: 12. Did the Bible make any mistake? Under no condition did the Bible make any mistake. The Bible is true. The Bible is right. Eve said that "she had gotten a man from the Lord" and that one proved that he was from the devil. Yes, and he was the first murderer and here we are over in the end of the book, John, the divine, firmly declared that Cain was of that wicked one. Who is the wicked one? Satan is the wicked one. Yes, and Satan who is the wicked one has children. Notice in the parable of the wheat and the tares over in the book of Matthew where it said there that the children of the wicked one are the tares. So the devil has children. The children of the wicked ones are the tares today, yes, and the first child of the wicked one was Cain over in genesis, and John knew that, and John said, "Cain was of that wicked one."
Therefore we conclude, upon the basis of the scripture, that Cain was the first seed of the serpent because the serpent went with Eve and pregnated her. Oh yes! Adam was not the wicked one; therefore, Cain was of the devil and not of Adam. God revealed to his prophet today the same thing that John understood that Cain was of that wicked one. We are ready to pick up the challenge. Please call us on our telephone and try to defend your doctrine, and if you cannot defend it then believe it and accept William Branham as the messenger for this age, the fulfillment of Mal. 4:5-6. Rev. 3:14, 10:7, Matt. 25:6. May the Lord bless your hearts.
