[The Seed of the Serpent in the Last Days]
“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.” – Genesis 3:15
Who are the serpent’s seed? What do the Scriptures say regarding the seed of the Serpent, and how does the seed of the Serpent fit into future Bible prophecy in the last days?
We will begin by observing what the Word of God has to say concerning the seed of the Serpent.
Seed of the Serpent: Fallen Humanity
Let us investigate the overwhelming evidence that human beings can be the seed of the Serpent.
Jesus said that the Pharisees were of their father, the devil.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” – John 8:44
Well, you cannot get any closer to being the seed of the Serpent if Satan is called your father by the Lord!
Yeshua said that false converts and unbelievers were children of the wicked one.
“He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one.” – Matthew 13:37-38
The tares, representing unregenerate mankind, are certainly the seed of the Serpent, as our Lord calls them “the children of the wicked one.”
Paul called Elymas a child of the devil.
“But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him. And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?” – Acts 13:8-10
A “child of the devil” should certainly be considered to be the seed of the Serpent.
Paul referred to the lost as being blinded by the god of this world.
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” – 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
Satan, as “the god of this world,” has “blinded the minds of them which believe not,” and these, being “lost” and in rebellion against God, can be nothing less than Satan’s spiritual offspring.
John said that the whole world lieth in the wicked one.
“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” – 1 John 5:18-19 (The “wicked one” and “wickedness” are from the same Greek word, 4190 πονηρός “ponéros.“)
We are all born into rebellion and sin handed down to us from Adam, and unless we come to Christ for salvation, we will be in the world, and “that wicked one” will be regarded to us as our spiritual father – the seed of the Serpent.
Before salvation, Paul said we all walked according to the prince of the power of the air and were children of disobedience.
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” – Ephesians 2:1-3
As the seed of the Serpent, those who are “children of wrath” and “dead in trespasses and sins” walk “according to the course of this world” of whom their father, the Serpent, rules.
John said that “He that committeth sin is of the devil” and are “children of the devil,” just as Cain “was of that wicked one.”
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who 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.” – 1 John 3:8-12
Cain, himself, was of that wicked one, and all who sin are of the devil. Surely, they are all the seed of the Serpent!
Seed of the Serpent: Fallen Angels
Without a doubt, fallen angels/demons who rebelled with Satan against their Creator are also the seed of the Serpent. Under the leadership of their leader and our bitter enemy, Satan, they have always been working in concert together to thwart God’s plan of salvation, redemption, and consummation in various and nefarious ways.
In Genesis 6: Biology and Genetics, we discussed the fallen angels’ attempt to corrupt the human genome in the antediluvian world in order to render humanity unable to be reconciled back to their Creator, as they would no longer be made in the image of God because of this genetic corruption. Today, the aim is no less nefarious and evil, but the method is somewhat different, in that man himself – through the guiding of demonic forces and an evolutionary worldview – is the method by which this is to be accomplished in the last days.
In Genesis 6: Biology and Genetics, we had the following to say:
Some have offered the possibility that there may be another eruption of fallen angels trying to corrupt the gene pool of humanity once again. For me, I really do not think so because man has already attained the technology and knowledge needed to corrupt mankind on his own – no doubt with fallen angels working behind the scenes!
“That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 1:9
Fast forward approximately 4,500 years from Genesis 6, and indeed there is “nothing new under the sun.” Instead of fallen angels personally corrupting humanity’s gene pool, it seems mankind is to be the conduit for this nefarious scheme today; that of corrupting the genome in an effort at achieving physical prowess, perceived supernatural powers, and immortal life.
But when it comes to The Seed of the Serpent in the Last Days, we still have more to consider.
Demonic Possession of the Human Mind
Demonic possession of the human mind is a historical and spiritual fact.
Here is a portion of a warning I gave to mankind in general, and Christians in particular, concerning opening one’s mind to potential demonic possession in QFTBOC: Family and the Afterlife.
Our brains are essentially a hard drive for our soul/spirit to operate. Just as a computer can be compromised by another person accessing computer files with nefarious intent – so, too, can other “entities” tap into our brains and alter perception when we, willingly or unwillingly, leave our minds open to other operatives.
Here are some of the most prevalent ways that this can be achieved.
Meditation & Psychology
In Eastern mysticism, meditation is the ability to clear one’s mind in an attempt to alter one’s consciousness. When this happens, the mind is opened up to other entities to operate the mind. And we know who these “entities” are – fallen angels/demons.
The same techniques are used in the pseudo-scientific realm of Psychology and Psychiatry and are accomplished, usually, by hypnotizing the subject; although there are many other ways, including the power of suggestion to implant false memories and the use of psycho meds.
New Age & Contemplative ‘Prayer’
New Age is essentially Hinduism repackaged for the modern Westerner, and their adherents also practice meditation for essentially the same reasons with the same end results.
Eastern religious and New Age meditation have invaded the church under what is known as Contemplative Prayer, Centering Prayer, and the teaching courses in apostate seminaries called Spiritual Formation. An excellent ministry that has extensive research into this area is Lighthouse Trials: “5 Things You Should Know About Contemplative Prayer” Booklet Will Help Share Truth – Lighthouse Trails Research Project
Fallen Angel/Demonic Contact
One observation we need to keep in mind as we move forward is that fallen angels/demons generally will masquerade as the disembodied spirits of past individuals. They also masquerade as aliens and “Ascended Masters.”
Here is what I said, regarding this deception, in Is the World Preparing for Our Departure?
Communications from Alien Ascended Masters
The New Age has prepared the world for the taking of Christians off of the earth through encounters with aliens, angels, and Ascended Masters communicating with men and women through a technique known as channeling. Of course, we know that these aliens and Ascended Masters are fallen angels masquerading as these entities, preparing the world for what is yet to come – namely, the taking away of Christians off of the earth.
These entities claim that it will be the removal of those – namely, Christians – who are not ready to take the evolutionary jump that is required for mankind. It is these Christians who are in the way of this evolution of mankind and will be taken either by aliens, the Ascended Masters themselves, or by the consciousness of the universe as it prepares for this evolutionary leap.
Again, these fallen angels/demons also mimic and masquerade as disembodied human spirits of deceased people of the past. They know as much about these people as those who knew them personally because they were there observing them and knew their desires, habits, loves, hates, physical attributes, personal characteristics, mannerisms, plans, goals, etc. By knowing intimately the personal traits of these individuals, they can easily deceive those who knew them.
The Ghost in the Machine
Truly, man’s brain is a divinely made supercomputer hard drive surpassing any computer that man can ever create. The human brain is operated by what could be considered a “Ghost in the Machine” – that is, our spirit/soul complex that operates our material minds that evolutionists refuse to acknowledge.
One could compare – rather simply, of course – our brain to a computer hard drive that is operated by the user of the computer, utilizing the software that is preprogrammed or installed into the computer’s hard drive. It is the operator of the computer itself that gives the hard drive and software its ability to functionally perform.
How does all of this relate and tie into our subject matter?
When it comes to Transhumanism, I see this subject going in two distinct directions. One is that of technology being assimilated into the human being, and the other is that of attempting to download the biologically material brain into a technological apparatus.
We can see how technology can be introduced into the human body, whether it be beneficial appendages for amputees or accessing the internet via brain chips while utilizing our brainwaves.
The idea of introducing chips into the human brain is more than problematic. Brain chip implants, depending on what these chips entail, could open the user of the chip implant to outside forces – whether it be to those who programmed and operate the chips or to demonic forces that can usurp the technology and wreak havoc for the recipient.
When it comes to the idea of downloading the human brain into a technological apparatus, this is highly subjective and can only be explained through an evolutionary point of view. Those who subscribe to such a possibility deny that there is a spirit/soul complex within mankind and therefore attribute all non-material thoughts, desires, emotions, ambitions, etc., to pure chemical reactions in the material brain.
The end result for those who believe they can achieve eternal life through the downloading of one’s material brain into a technological apparatus will find themselves severely disappointed, as chemicals and neurological transmitters within the human brain have no other function than to be benefitted by the operator – the Ghost in the Machine – the spirit/soul complex that God has given to each human being created in His own image.
In the simplest of terms, what will happen – if these godless people believe they will have achieved such a thing – is they will open a door for fallen angels/demons to access those same biological elements that our spirit/soul complex utilizes with our brain’s functionality within the technological apparatus where these chemicals and neurological transmitters are confined.
For those individuals in the Technocracy that deny their God-given spirit/soul complex and believe they will achieve eternal life in this aberrant fashion – after they have effectively downloaded their biological material brains – will conversely, tragically, and horrifically find the same spirit/soul complex, that they denied having, in Sheol awaiting their final fate at the Great White Throne judgment and ultimate destiny in the Lake of Fire!
A.I. and ‘Singularity’
The idea that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be capable of what is known as singularity – that is, that AI will ultimately achieve a consciousness, “I think, therefore I am” – is an entirely evolutionary concept as well. Logically, AI should only achieve that which the programmers have instilled into the AI’s data set. The intelligence is artificial, and artificial intelligence is limited by the parameters set by the programmers.
On the other hand, when we consider demonic possession – that of fallen angels operating an open mind of a human being – AI will become disposed and susceptible to the same type of possession within its hard drive and software apparatus as the human brain is!
This is seemingly already happening: A.I. Claiming to be Fallen Angel. Note: Please ignore the references in this video to The Book of Enoch, as The Book of Enoch is not Scripture.
The question we should ask, regarding the video above, is, “Was this preprogrammed into the Artificial Intelligence (AI), or has the program been hijacked by a fallen angel, which could only be described as demonic possession?”
The Seed of the Serpent in the Last Days
When we consider the Image of the Beast in Revelation 13:11-15, is there any wonder how The Seed of the Serpent in the Last Days will play out?
Fallen angels, in specific, and the supernatural, in general, will become the new normal during the Tribulation. What was once generally unseen in our world will become pervasive and witnessed by all after the rapture of the church.
Concerning the Antichrist, Paul had this to say:
“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10
If Satan energizes Antichrist, could it be that Abaddon – who will be released toward the midway point of the Tribulation with the demonic horde at the 5th Trumpet judgment (Revelation 9:1-11) – or some other fallen angel, will energize the Image of the Beast in the third Temple?
“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” – Revelation 9:11
“And he [False Prophet] doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast [Antichrist]; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” – Revelation 13:13-15
A fallen angel inhabiting and controlling the technological apparatus of the Image of the Beast would certainly give life to the image and “should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” This fallen angel, working in concert with Satan energizing the Antichrist, will be the vehicle that will deceive the whole world who will not love the truth and will believe the lie of The Mark of The Beast as God sends His strong delusion. [For more on this, please see The Two Lies, God’s Strong Delusion, and the Father of Lies.]
The human Seed of the Serpent has their own part in all of this, as they will give homage to The Beast and his Image, believe the lie, and take The Mark of The Beast.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” – Revelation 13:4
A holy angel even warns those who dwell on the earth, at the midway point of the Tribulation, of the consequences of worshiping The Beast and his Image and taking his Mark.
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” – Revelation 14:9-11
When it comes to the Image of the Beast, a demonic spirit behind an idol or an image is nothing new. For, as the Scriptures declare, behind every idol or image – past, present, and future – is a demonic force, the angelic seed of the Serpent.
“And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.” – Leviticus 17:7
“They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.” – Deuteronomy 32:16-17
“And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
“Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.” – Psalm 106:36-38
Once again, the seed of the Serpent will rear their ugly heads in full force – a reality that we see rapidly progressing and approaching today.
It is hard to imagine that our Lord will let things get much worse and allow these technological advances to increase much more than they already have. But I am not God, and, despite what the Technocrats believe of themselves, neither are they!
We must, as Christ’s ambassadors on earth, be patient. For we have a mightily gracious, patient, and loving God who desires all to come to repentance and believe and trust in His Son’s amazing sacrifice for their sins. This is where our focus should be.
So let us individually and collectively warn the masses before we can warn them no more – for a literal hell on earth descends upon those who refuse the glorious gospel of Christ after the Lord’s bride is taken out of this world. They will still have a chance to come to the Lord, but the price they pay for putting off the most important decision they could ever make is very great, indeed.
May we all keep Answering the Call of The Great Commission, and giving an answer to every man and woman who so desperately needs Jesus and asks us, “Why Am I Here and What Is It All About?”
Love, grace, mercy, and shalom in Messiah Yeshua, and Maranatha!
