Satan's Impregnation of Eve
Page 5

Genesis 3:14-And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.

Here God isolates the serpent, the instigator of the sin, and immediately begins to render judgment at his feet. The pronouncement of this curse reflects a condition of permanent degradation directed at this once anointed cherub who, in time past, enjoyed the prestige of protecting Godís Throne. He is now referred to by God as the lowest form of life that He created (Ezekiel 28:14-16).

Genesis 3:15-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.

God continues His pronouncement of the curse and speaks prophecy over the serpentís seed. His prophetic utterance has separated forever Satanís natural children from the children of God with an eternal hatred. The bruising of Christís heel on the cross is prophecy that was fulfilled by the serpentís seed. This evil progeny, ĎThe princes of this worldí, were the oneís who instigated Christís crucifixion (1 Corinthians 2:6-8). Read my study ĎThe 4 Wís Of Christís Crucifixioní

Genesis 3:16-Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Why is God talking about Satanís seed and Eveís conception in Genesis 3:15-16 before Eve ever knew Adam sexually in Genesis 4:1-2? Satan, who cannot create life on his own, needed the womb of mother Eve so that he could father his child Cain. For this reason, God renders judgment against Eve for her role in this sexual sin. Before this sin had taken place in Eden, childbearing was never intended to be a painful experience for women. Now the womb was cursed by God to isolate for all to see the great sin that took place in Eden.

Genesis 3:17-19-And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Judgment is rendered against Adam because he listened to the voice of Eve instead of listening to the voice of God when he was commanded not to sexually touch the Devil. Many Christians are not mature enough to spiritually receive this truth, so let me put this into perspective for them. Itís okay for Christians to believe that Satan, in his struggle for power, was foolish enough to fight against God in heaven, but itís not okay for Christians to believe that Satan is despicable enough to use sex, the greatest temptation known to man, to cause Adamís fall?

In the events leading up to the sin in Eden, Adamís first mistake was not stopping his wife from committing adultery. His second mistake was letting Eve talk him into participating in the sin. In 1 Timothy 2:13-14 Paul states that Adam was not deceived, but Eve, being deceived, stood in transgression of Godís commandment. On the surface it seems unfair to blame one and not the other when both took part. Yet Eve, being deceived, was the one who violated Godís commandment and she, in turn, deceived Adam when he chose to listen to her and not listen to the voice of God.

Satan is the great illusionist which means he can cast a false image of himself to deceive the one looking on. He did this in 2 Corinthians 11:14, when he disguised himself as an angel of light. The enemy is the master of false perceptions. He probably appeared to Adam in the image of Eve or the likeness of some other beautiful woman that fit the mental picture of Adamís fantasy. This statement would shock some Christians because in their unrealistic view of Adamís life. They canít bring themselves to imagine that this man had any sexual hangups. He did, and his lustful passion was no different than the temptation that all men face today. In James 5:17 we are told that Elisha was a man of like passions which means that even this great prophet had to battle the lustful nature of his flesh. Some Christians reject the biblical reality of Eden in favor of their church traditions. Since they have rejected the word of truth, God has rejected their traditions (Samuel 15:23).
