Genesis 3:15 Two Seed Lines

February 25, 2023

Here is Genesis 3 according to The Old Covenant, Commonly Called The Old Testament: Translated From The Septuagint by Charles Thomson:[1]

NOW the two, both Adam and his wife were naked, and were not ashamed.  But the serpent was the wisest of all the beasts on the earth which the Lord God had made, and the serpent said to the woman, “Why hath God said, you must not eat of every tree of the garden?”  And the woman said to the serpent, “Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God said, You shall not eat of it, nor touch it, that you may not die.”  And the serpent said to the woman, “You will not by death die.  For God knew that in the day you eat thereof, your eyes would be opened and you would be like gods knowing good and evil.”  And the woman saw that the tree was good for food; and that it is delightful to see with the eyes; and that to exercise understanding is comely, so having taken some of the fruit thereof, she ate and gave also to her husband with her.  And when they had eaten, the eyes of them both were opened, and they perceived that they were naked.  And they sewed together fig leaves and made for themselves girdles.  And when they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening, both Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God, among the trees of the garden.

And the Lord God called Adam and said to him, “Adam, where are thou?” and he said to Him, “I heard the sound of Thee walking in the garden and I was afraid, because I am naked, and I hid myself.”  And God said to him, “Who told thee that thou art naked, if so be thou hast not eaten of the tree of which alone I commanded thee not to eat of this?” And Adam said, “The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat.”  And the Lord God said to the woman, “Why hast thou done this?” And the woman said, “The serpent seduced me and I ate.” And the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed from all the cattle and from all the beasts which are upon the earth.  Upon thy breast and belly thou shalt go and shalt eat earth all the days of thy life.  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman; and between thy seed and her seed.  He will wound thy head, and thou wilt would his heel.”  And to the woman he said, “I will greatly multiply thy sorrows and thy anguish.  With sorrows thou shalt bear children and to thy husband shall be thy recourse, and he shall rule over thee.”  And to Adam he said, “Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and eaten of the tree of which alone I commanded thee not to eat, the ground is cursed by thy labors.  With sorrows thou shalt eat of it all the days of thy life.  Thorns and thistles it shall cause to spring up for thee, and thou shalt eat the herbs of the field. By the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat thy bread until thou return into the earth out of which thou wast taken; for earth thou art and to earth thou shalt return.”

And Adam called the name of his wife LIFE, because she was to be the mother of all the living.  And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife garments of skin and clothed them.

And God said, “Behold Adam was made like one of us to know good and evil.  And now perhaps he may stretch forth his hand and take of the tree of life and eat, so shall he live forever.”  So the Lord God sent him out of the garden of pleasure to till the ground out of which he was taken.  And when he put Adam out He caused him to dwell over against the garden of pleasure and stationed the Cherubim and the whirling flame of fire to keep the way to the tree of life.

Genesis 3:15 is the most controversial verse in the Bible.  Most, if not all of Babylonian Churchianity believe that Eve ate an apple, gave it to Adam to eat, which he did, and then sin entered the world, and thus entropy with it.  Thus, the countdown to the end of the world began, or did it?

But why does I John 3:12-13 state, “For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning that we should love one another, and not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and slew his brother.  And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”  Was Adam “the evil one”?  Before we answer that question, let’s look at Genesis 3:15 throughout the centuries and see if it has changed in meaning or not:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman; and between thy seed and her seed.  He will wound thy head, and thou wilt would his heel.[2]

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed, he shall watch against thy head, and thou shalt watch against his heel.[3]

and enmity I put between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he doth bruise thee – the head, and thou dost bruise him – the heel.”[4]

I will also cause antagonism between you and the woman, and between your progeny and her progeny. He shall wound your head, and you shall wound His heel.”[5]

And I will set a feud between you and woman, between your brood and hers: they shall strike at your head, and you shall strike at their heel.”[6]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your posterity and her posterity; her posterity shall tread your head under foot, and you shall strike him in his heel.”[7]

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your posterity and hers; They shall attack you in the head, and you shall attack them in the heel.”[8]

I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.”[9]

And enmity will I put between thee, and the woman, and between thy seed, and her seed, He shall crush thy head, But thou shalt crush his heel.”[10]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed – He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”[11]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel.”[12]

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.”[13]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed: He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”[14]

And I will put enmity between you and woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”[15]

From now on, you and woman will be enemies, and your offspring and her offspring will be enemies.  He will crush your heel, and you will strike his heel.”[16]

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”[17]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”[18]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shalt bruise his heel.”[19]

And hatred I will put between you and between the woman; and between your seed and between her seed.  He will give heed to your head, and you will give heed to his heel.”[20]

I’ll place hostility between you and the woman, between your offspring and her offspring.  He’ll strike your on the head, and you’ll strike him on the heel.”[21]

And I shall set enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her Seed. He shall hurt you in the head, and you shall hurt Him in the heel.”[22]

I will also put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed.  He shall break thine head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”[23]

I will put animosity between you and the woman, and between your descendant and her descendant; he will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.”[24]

I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring.  He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”[25]

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” [26]

and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He bruises your head, and you bruise His heel.”[27]

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her Seed, He will watch against thy head, and thou shalt watch against His heel.”[28]

You will note that there are six terms used in Genesis 3:15 throughout the past that have the same meaning:  Seed; Progeny; Brood; Posterity; Offspring; and Descendant.  But let’s define these terms according to Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language:[29]

Seed:               Progeny; offspring; children; descendants; as in the seed of Abraham; the seed of David.  In this sense, the word is applied to one person, or to any number collectively, and admits of the plural form; but rarely used in the plural.  Race; generation; birth. 

Progeny:         Offspring; race; children; descendants of the human-kind, or offspring of other animals; as the progeny of a king; the progeny of Adam; the progeny of beasts or fowls. 

Brood:            Offspring; progeny; formerly used of human beings in elegant works, and we have brother, from this word; but it is now more generally used in contempt.

Posterity:        Descendants; children, children’s children, etc. indefinitely; the race that proceeds from a progenitor.  The whole Adamic race are the posterity of Adam. 

Offspring:      A child or children; a descendant or descendants, however remote from the stock.

Descendant:   Any person proceeding from an ancestor in any degree; issue; offspring, in the line of generation, ad infinitum.  All the Adamites are the descendants of Adam and Eve.

As one can see from these words and their definitions, there is only one meaning:  physical children and/or offspring.  All of the above-referenced words mean the same word:  seed.

From a Biblical point of view, according to Mounces’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old & New Testament Words for the Hebrew and Greek words for seed:[30]

Seed (Zera in the Hebrew, Strong’s #2233 used 229 times). The noun zera generally means “seed, descendant, offspring.”

Seed (Sperma in the Greek, Strong’s #4690 used 43 times).  The noun sperma means “seed, descendant.”

According to Wilson’s Old Testament Word Studies,[31] the Hebrew word, zera, means:

Semen, virile, hence children, offspring, posterity.

According to Baker and Carpenter’s The Complete Word Study Dictionary Old Testament:[32]

Zera (Strong’s #2233) is a masculine noun meaning sowing, seed, descendants, offspring, children, and posterity.

According to Zodhiates’ The Complete Word Study Dictionary New Testament:[33]

Sperma (Strong’s #4690) means “living beings as the seed of man, i.e., posterity or descendants.

According to The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, the Hebrew word for seed is zera (H2233)[34] and the Greek word for seed is sperma (G4690)[35] which means:

ZeraCarnally, child, fruitful.

SpermaSeed, including the male sperm; by implication offspring.

According to 1 Timothy 2:13–14, “For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” In short, Eve sinned.

The word deceived is Strong’s no. G538, apatao, which means “to cheat, i.e. delude—deceive.”[36] So, how has Eve been deceived? There is a three-step process according to 1 John 2:16:

For all that is in the world,

  1. the lust of the flesh, and
  2. the lust of the eyes, and
  3. the pride of life,

is not of the Father, but is of the world.

So, who owns this world? Ha Satan (i.e., the Accuser.) Who has tempted Yahshuah the same way he has tempted Eve in the same three ways? Ha Satan (i.e., the Accuser).

  1. “If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread,” to which Yahshuah responded, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of God” (Matthew 4:3–4).
  2. “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone,” to which Yahshuah responded, “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God” (Matthew 4:6–7).
  3. “The devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto Him, all these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me,” to which Yahshuah finished the temptation by saying, “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:8–10).

As one can see, Ha Satan never changes his tactics; he just refines them. Ha Satan actually has the gall to use the same attack on Yahshuah as he has done on Eve. How can one be so blinded by arrogance as to think that the same temptations used on a human being could be used on YAHWEH in the flesh? However, if one notices during this give-and-take, Yahshuah never questions Ha Satan’s ownership of the world, which ultimately means that Ha Satan is the prince of this world.

So, how did that happen? Well, one just has to go back to Genesis 3 wherein:

The Shining One [Ha Nachash—Strong’s no. H5175, which comes from Strong’s no. 5172, which means “to practice divination”[37]] was more clever than any animal of the    field hat the Lord God had made. He asked the woman [not the man], Did God actually say, you are not to eat from any tree of the garden? But the woman [Eve] answered, We may eat from the trees of the garden but as for the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said, You are not to eat from it, nor are you to touch it, or you will die. The Shining One told the woman, You certainly will not die! Even God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you’ll become like God, knowing good and evil.[38]

Sounds like modern-day transhumanism, doesn’t it? Remember, the serpent is the equivalent to deception, while the dragon is equivalent to persecution. If the serpent had approached Adam, who was a direct creation of YAHWEH, this event would not have happened, and Ha Nachash would have been dead. However, that is not what has happened. Ha Nachash has approached the weaker vessel.

So, what did Eve ultimately do?

When the woman [Eve]:

  1. Saw that the tree produced good food;
  2. Was attractive in appearance; and
  3. Was desirable for making one wise;
  4. She took some of its fruit and ate it.
  5. Then, she also gave some to her husband who was also with her, and
  6. He ate some too.
  7. As a result:
  8. They both understood what they had done; and
  9. They became aware that they were naked.[39]

Thus, this was why the apostle John warned against the wiles of the devil (i.e., the world). And thus, the second Law of thermodynamics, entropy, entered the garden and ultimately the world. And Adam blamed YAHWEH, “The woman whom you provided for me gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate some of it.”[40] And Eve blamed Ha Nachash, who “misled me . . . so I ate.”[41] So one can see that Satan had a three-step plan:

  1. Introduce doubt
  2. Introduce denial
  3. Introduce rationalization

What is interesting to note is what YAHWEH has said in this first prophecy of judgment or protevangelum:

The Lord God told the Shining One, because you have done this, you are more cursed than all the livestock, and more than all the earth’s animals, you’ll crawl on your belly and eat dust as long as you live. I’ll place hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He’ll Strike you on the head, and you’ll strike him on the heel.[42]

Most biblical scholars state that this is the first prophecy in the Bible with regard to the First Coming of Yahshuah. You will note that the ISV translates zera as “physical offspring for both Ha Nachash and the woman [Eve].”

However, Dr. Joye Jeffries Pugh discusses the possibility that YAHWEH has put that harsh punishment in place because Eve has had sex with Ha Nachash, thus resulting in the birth of Cain, not an offspring of Adam, resulting in the hierarchy of the Illuminati kings/queens and ultimately culminating in the possibility of Prince Will I Am as the Antichristos.[43] As a result, Dr. Pugh theorizes that there are two seedlines: the seed of Ha Nachash (Satan) and the seed of the woman (Eve).[44]

There is only one Hebrew word for seed used throughout the Old Testament, which is the Hebrew word zera, Strong’s no. H2233, which means “figuratively, plant, sowing-time, posterity; carnally, child, fruitful, seed-time, sowing-time.”[45] There are a couple of major Greek words for seed used throughout the New Testament, which are sperma, Strong’s no. G4690, which means “something sown, i.e. seed including male sperm by implication offspring, specifically a remnant, issue, seed,”[46] and sporos, Strong’s no. G4703, which means “a scattering of seed, i.e. seed as sown.”[47]

According to Wilson’s Old Testament Word Studies, the word seed only has two meanings:[48]

  1. A sowing, seed time, time of sowing, i.e. late in autumn in Palestine; seed which is scattered, sown, whether of plants, trees, or grain; of what springs from seed sown, filed of grain harvest; crop, produce of field.
  2. Semen virile, hence children, offspring, posterity; spoken also of one child when an only one; a race, stock family; seed royal; a race of class of men.

In either sense, seed is seed. Whether it is seed sown in the ground to produce food or seed sown in a woman to produce children, seed is seed, period. Therefore, there are the seed of the woman (Eve) running around out there as well as the seed of that Wicked One running around out there. Two seeds—get used to it. Yahshuah has stated that clearly in the parable of the wheat and the tares, and John has reconfirmed it in his first epistle.

John the Baptist states in Matthew 3:12:

Whose fan is in His Hand, and He will thoroughly purge His Floor, and gather His Wheat unto His Garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Matthew 13:24–30, 36–43 states:

Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, His enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So, the servants of the householder came and said unto Him, Sir, didst not Thou sow good seed in Thy Field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto Him, Wilt Thou then that we go and gather them up? But He said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 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.

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto Him, saying, Declare unto us the Parable of the Tares of the Field. He answered and said unto them,

  1. He that soweth the good seed [spermos] is the Son of Man;
  2. The field is the world;
  3. The good seed are the Children of the Kingdom; but
  4. The tares are the Children of the Wicked One;
  5. The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
  6. The harvest is the end of the world; and
  7. The reapers are the angels.

As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire;

So, shall it be in the end of this world.

The Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and

  1. They shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and
  2. Them which do iniquity; and
  3. Shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

THEN, shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Jesus states in Matthew 15:13, “Every plant which My Heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” John states in 1 John 3:12, “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.”

Two or more witnesses according to the Law. Seed is seed, period. And there are two physical seeds on this earth. I wonder who they are?  You should be able to figure that out by now based on my previous two books…Remember Revelation 2:9 and 3:9?  For more information, please read the following books on this subject on my website: https://drjustinprock.com/
