The Serpent Seed Teaching from the Serpent |

The Serpent seed, teaching "from the Serpent" Pt.2 Is Cain, the Devil's seed? [Excerpts]

One of the more weighty arguments used is that Cain is not found in the genealogy (Gen:4:16-25), reinforcing the [premise that] he is from the Devil. This is truly ridiculous as Abel is not in it either. Using this way of interpreting Scripture one would have to believe he is from the Devil also! This is teaching from the silence of the Scripture, not from what it actually teaches. 

Arnold Murray [and others say] Cain was not of Adam's genes. He was not Adam’s son. That’s why you will not find him listed in the genealogy.

Cain's Genealogy in Gen:4:16-25 ends with v.24: "If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold." [This is] because Cain's lineage produced another murderer, Lamech, who also happen to be the first polygamist recorded in Scripture.

Some of Cain's descendants are mentioned in Genesis:4:17-22 Gen:5:7,13,16, 26. Cain's descendants, Seth's descendants, and the descendants of their kin populated the earth (Remember Adam and Eve had other children, Genesis:5:4).

Can the DNA of this creature (serpent), a completely different species copulate with a human being? Or did Satan use the creature for the temptation for Eve to eat fruit?  A non Human cannot be used to fertilize a human egg. The serpent was real, he was called one of God’s creatures in the garden (Gen:2:14). It is later we see the serpent is used to represent Satan, referring back to this first event.

Adam and Eve, MANKIND'S first parents were monogamous: Adam did not "know" any other than "his wife," and Eve did not "know" anyone but “her husband.” Jesus referred to their marriage in Mt.19:5 as the standard. If Eve was unfaithful Jesus could not say this.(1 Cor:6:16). To make Eve a harlot is a demonic teaching.

Gen:4:1 Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, "I have acquired a man from the LORD." It does not say anywhere the serpent knew Eve, there is no such teaching from the Scripture saying Cain had two fathers. This is not reading the Scripture in context, but making it a pretext. It's made up from a fertile imagination—a revelation not from God but mans fallen imagination.

The Hebrew word translated “bore” is “yalad” (3205); a primitive root; to bear young; causatively, to beget; medically, to act as midwife; specifically, to show lineage: KJV-- bear, beget, birth ([-day]), born, (make to) bring forth (children, young), bring up, calve, child, come, be delivered (of a child), time of delivery, gender, hatch, labour, (do the office of a) midwife, declare pedigrees, be the son of, (woman in, woman that) travail (-eth, -ing woman).

The Bible teaches Adam knew his wife and she conceived Cain— there is not a hint of another source. "Knew" is the same word used in Gen:4:17 where Cain knew his wife. If Cain is from another source than it is applied to every other use of this word.

The KJV: “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. You don't get a demon child from God or with His help, nor do you praise him for this. Notice also that she said she got “a man” not “men” as in plural or “twins.” Who knows better what took place: Eve and the Scriptures or Branham or Murray?

This becomes a matter of where someone wants to get their teaching. The Bible clearly says, in Gen:4:1 “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain ” This is not just making up a doctrine from silence, but going against the clear teaching in Scripture. It was from ADAM the Scripture clearly attributes Cain to, not Satan.
