In part 4 we talked about the 'serpent's seed', and traced Cain's geneology through God's Word from its beginning in Genesis to its end in the book of Revelation. The mere fact that there is an adversary to God's plan of salvation is easily accepted. The revelation that such an adversary has PHYSICAL offspring among us is a more difficult treatise, but the fact that God ALLOWS such an abomination to co-exist with us is just unthinkable to many. Nevertheless, it is a true fact as we have shown. One may not understand why, but it is only because they have not used their own minds, but have allowed the traditions of man to serve as their interpreter of God's WORD. Think about it. We began this series with a 2 part thesis which I will reiterate here:

Thesis part (A) ALL OF GOD'S WORD IS TRUE.


We will continue using the same rules.

The offspring of the serpent and the woman is first mentioned in Gen 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." (KJV) Is not this a promise by the Living God? The message is so clear even a child can understand. Notice first of all who God was talking to. (previous verse: {3:14} "...God said unto the serpent.."). The message is to Satan. God does not talk to the woman until 3:16. Now pause and think a minute. If this is God's Word, are not the serpent's seed (children) still here with us? Of course they are. If Father has prmised to put "enmity" (hate) between them, dont they have to be around as long as the other children? We identified the serpents seed in Part 4 as the Kenites, the children of Cain, Satan's son.

The seed (children) of the woman are thus set at odds against the seed (children) of the serpent. Notice something else about 3:15. God said that HE (GOD) would put 'enmity' between the children. This word is Strong's # 342 'eybah (ay-baw'); from 340; hostility: KJV-- emnity, hatred.

The root word is Strong's # 340 'ayab (aw-yab'); a primitive root; to hate (as one of an opposite tribe or party); hence to be hostile: KJV-- be an enemy.

God also made a prediction about the children. GOD said (Gen 3:15) "that the seed of the woman would 'bruise' the head of the serpent's seed, and that the serpent's seed would 'bruise' the heel of the woman's seed". The word 'bruise' is Strong's # 7779 shuwph (shoof); a primitive root; properly, to gape, i.e. snap at; figuratively, to overwhelm: KJV-- break, bruise, cover.

The word 'head' is Strong's # 7218 ro'sh (roshe); from an unused root apparently meaning to shake; the head (as most easily shaken), whether literal or figurative (in many applications, of place, time, rank, etc. : KJV-- band, beginning, captain, chapiter, chief (-est place, man, things), company, end, X every [man], excellent, first, forefront, ([be-]) head, height, (on) high (-est part, [priest]), X lead, X poor, principal, ruler, sum, top.

The word 'heel' is Strong's # 6119 `aqeb (aw-kabe'); or (feminine) `iqqebah (ik-keb-aw'); from 6117; a heel (as protuberant); hence, a track; figuratively, the rear (of an army): KJV-- heel, [horse-] hoof, last, lier in wait [by mistake for 6120], (footstep).

The root word is Strong's # 6117 aqab (aw-kab'); a primitive root; properly, to swell out or up; used only as denominative from 6119, to seize by the heel; figuratively, to circumvent (as if tripping up the heels); also to restrain (as if holding by the heel): KJV-- take by the heel, stay, supplant, X utterly. (DIC)

All this is presented in detail so we may grasp the following truths.

1) God promised both continuing destiny and a continued hostility between the offspring of the serpent and the woman. This hostility began in earnest when Cain slew Abel.

2) From the time God made this promise, we accept that for it to be fulfilled, BOTH the seed of the woman and the serpent's seed must be preserved PURE until the end, which we find in the book of Revelation chapter 20, where the serpents seed is finally destroyed.

PLEASE don't let these points get over your head. See the parable of the sower (Matt 13:24-30) and Jesus' very plain explanation (only to those that will HEAR) in Matt 13:36-43.

What can we know from Gen 3:15 and the words of the Master in Matthew? We MUST see that not only did both seedlines get thru the flood, but they continue to this day after the works of their fathers (read John 8, esp 8:44). Keep this in mind as we study about the flood in part 6.

The second genealogy is that of Adam, given in Gen 5. It is significant that the serpent's geneology is listed first (in Gen 4), because it brings out the further truth spoken by Jesus in Matt 19:30 "But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first." Hence the seed of the woman will be first in the kingdom of heaven, but also we should be aware of the further truth that the FALSE messiah will come before the true one. (Matt 24, Mk 13, and 2 Thess chapter2)

Continuing on with the seedline of Adam, we see that it continued with Seth (Gen 5:4), because Abel was murdered and Cain was not Adams seed. I have previously mentioned that we should notice the similarity of the names of Adam's children and the names of Cain's children in chapter 4. We should see from this how the serpent's seed loves to mimic the children of God. Their works, however, give them away. They do have great words that sound (to the lazy) very Biblical. They love to be thought of as "great men of the LORD". The problem is that they are mighty men of the WRONG lord. We must be wiser than the serpent and use only GOD's Word as our guide. Dont be misled by these Kenites and their false doctrine, the commentaries of man. Jesus taught often how we were to handle them. He did NOT say to destroy them. Gen 4:15 "And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him."(KJV) Are you now beginning to see what Cain's mark was? Jesus told us concerning the Kenites:

LEAVE THEM ALONE! (Matt 13:28-30) 28:"He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29:But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30:Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn." (KJV)

Jesus also told us (Matt 7:15-20) that we were to be fruit inspectors.

15 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (KJV)

He said "by their fruits will you know them". Don't miss the mention here in Matthew of the 'good and bad trees'. This should point your mind straight to Gen 2:9, the two trees in the garden. Have you smelled any bad apples lately?

Our Master gave us instruction on how to deal with them God's way: Matt 10:16 "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

Finally, our Master gave us a great example lesson when the serpent's seed came to take Jesus for crucifixion : Peter drew his sword and attacked the band of kenites. In Matt 26:52 "Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword: " (KJV)

Remember God's words in Gen 4:15 "DONT KILL CAIN" ? Jesus said to Peter, DONT KILL CAIN'S CHILDREN. Thus, we are to IDENTIFY them, TEACH truth against them, resist wholly by the word of GOD, but to otherwise LEAVE THEM ALONE. As we see the New World Order of the Kenites come into existance right before our eyes, we would do well to remember and to follow Jesus' example. Let God do the physical fighting. He has promised He would. "IT IS WRITTEN, VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY, Saith the LORD". (Rom 12:19)

Within the seedline of Adam, we see ALL the great men of God to the birth of the promised one- JESUS the Messiah, the SON OF GOD. One is tempted to stop the seedline with Jesus, but GOD's Word doesn't. You see, there have been many forks in the seedline. At each of these forks, the Kenites have done their best to destroy it. They did not succeed, nor will they ever. We see one fork with the story of Noah. This one is amazing, and will be treated in the next part. The second fork was with Noah's children, Another major one was with Peleg. The one we are most familiar with was Abraham, then Isaac, and finally Jacob and Esau.

The story of the seedline from Abraham has been "taught" about by all the cemeteries quite often. It is also probably the one that is most misunderstood. Some commentary-educated theologists call Abraham a Jew. Some call him an Israelite. Very few know that Abraham was a Hebrew (Gen 14:13). He was neither an Israelite nor a Jew, for Israel (Jacob) was his grandson, and Judah was his great-grandson! Do we not see from this that the children of Abraham were all Hebrews? Do we forget that Abraham had SEVEN sons OTHER than Isaac? (Gen 16:16), Gen 25:1-2). ALL these and their offspring are Hebrews, but NONE of these are either Israelites nor Jews. You see, God promised Abraham that Abraham's offspring would be numbered as the sand of the sea, the stars of heaven (Gen 22:17), and the dust of the earth (Gen 13:16) These predictions yeild startling conclusions to thinking persons.

Lets see now: "the sand of the sea". Hmm.. Isn't that the place that John saw the Beast rise from? SURE IS. Rev 13:1 "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." (KJV)

How about "the dust of the earth"? Hmmm.. Didn't we just read that in Gen 3:14? SURE DID> "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: (KJV)

Satans little Kenites eat everything we produce, or at least they try to.

How about "the stars of heaven"? HMMM...yessss.. Daniel 12. Jesus tells Daniel to seal the book because the wise shall understand when the time comes. In Dan 12:3 we find "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (KJV)

Thus we see God's prediction that most of Abrahams seed would do the work of the Kenite, by being deluded into worshiping the ways of this world. I say most, for it is probable that the combination of the dust of the earth and the sand of the seashore vastly outnumber the 'stars of heaven'. Something to think about anyway.

It would not be proper to leave the subject of Adam's seed without pointing out something else. Namely, God promised that Abrahams seed would be greatly blessed, physically and spiritually. (Gen 22:17-18:) 17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. (KJV)

God passed this promise to Jacob when he changed his name to Israel, in Gen 28:14 "And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed." (KJV)

Israel passed it to Josephs children, Ephraim and Manasseh. In Gen 48:16, Israel says "The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and LET MY NAME BE NAMED ON THEM, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head. 18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head. 19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. 20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh. (KJV) "

Notice especially verse 16 "LET MY NAME BE NAMED ON THEM"!! WHO?? Ephraim and Manasseh, that's WHO. It is JOSEPH'S children that are ISRAEL, which in the Hebrew is 'the people of GOD' Look it up. It is not solely the JEWS (Judah) who are Israel.. The birthright is not to be so stolen.

Now man tells you that THE JEWS are God's chosen people. But as you can see from the first verse of Gen 49, it is JACOB, not ISRAEL who blesses Judah and the rest of the tribes. The WORD is showing us that his Blessing name of Israel has already been given away: TO EPHRAIM AND MANASSEH.

Now these promises God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and eventually to Ephraim and Manasseh are absolutely wonderful, and are physical, national blessings. If you listen to man, he will tell you it is the Jews that got them. Such trash. You would have to believe God lied to believe that. No, my friend, look at the nations of the earth today. You should be able to find God's people. They would be the ones who would be a blessing in the earth to other nations; They would 'possess the gates of their enemies'. They would be a Christian nation. They would feed the earth with their bounty. They would have vast natural resources. They would spend time, money and effort to send missionaries into the earth. They would be the envy of all nations. Hmmm.

Look in the mirror, and give God the thanks.

Yashua Bless
