The Serpent Seed & the Nephilim

Nephilim Eschatology, Part 2
A Crash Course in the Emerging Endtime Prophecy Heresy
By Gaylene Goodroad*
Those fallen angels
who descended to Mount Hermon introduced the
“seed
of the serpent”
into the human race. Evidently, after the
Flood, they consorted with members of the tribe of Dan, mixing the
“seed of the serpent” into the human genome once
again.

~J.R Church with Gary Stearman[1]
[bold added]

In the first book of the
Bible we find an intriguing clue to the possible
lineage of the coming
Antichrist…. In
Genesis 3:14-15
we read the response of God as he, so to speak, takes Satan to the
woodshed…. This is one of the most pivotal portions of scripture in the entire
Bible. It sets up the battle between the
seed
of the woman
… and the
seed of Satan
…. The Hebrew word translated seed
is the word
zera, meaning “offspring,
descendants, posterity, and children.
Satan is going to have [biological] seed! Who is the
seed of Satan
, and what is his future destiny?
~Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman [2] [bold added]

After the falling away
Paul states that “the man of sin… the son of perdition” will be
revealed. This is a fascinating insight that may relate to the very parentage
of the Antichrist
himself. The word translated “son” is the Greek word huios, which is used in a
general sense to mean “a male
offspring
“…. The composite we can draw from these verses [2 Thess.
2:3-4] is disturbing indeed. We have examined in detail the intrigues of
Genesis 6, where the fallen angels consorted with the “daughters of
men” and produced supernatural
offspring
…. If the fallen angel interpretation is indeed a valid description
of the state of affairs in Genesis 6, then it is likely that Satan, as a
fallen angel himself, must also have the ability to cohabit with a human female.

By definition any offspring produced by
such an ungodly union
would be the seed and the son of perdition!… 
If the Antichrist does arise from
such a union, then from a Biblical perspective, he would be a Nephilim (“fallen one”). While this notion
may seem radical, it turns out that there is additional Biblical evidence that the Nephilim will play a major role in the
end-times scenario…
 
~Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman [3] [bold/underscore/italics

Part One of this article series on “Nephilim Eschatology” drew an outline of these
popular false teachings arising in the evangelical world. These teachings
speculate that there will be a return of the lecherous “Watchers” (space
aliens, extraterrestrials) of the apocryphal Book of Enoch
to planet earth to copulate with female earthlings in an all-out demonic effort
to thoroughly contaminate the human gene pool (DNA)—resulting in the eternal
damnation for all demon/human hybrids: i.e.,
the Nephilim
.

Those
who teach and promote these salacious sci-fi scenarios have contorted the
Scriptural text — most especially the foundational Genesis record—into a myth
focused upon the X-rated bestial behavior of dark ghastly entities returning
through unseen portals in the heavenlies. 

They are also revivifying and re-engineering the old horrific Serpent Seed heresies. What follows is an in-depth research report on the disturbing rise of a new hybrid Serpent Seed false doctrine, its history, its associations, and its far-reaching implications.

BACK TO GENESIS: LAYING A FALSE FOUNDATION
Part One noted that the biblical foundation laid by God in Genesis 6 has been shifted from
man’s personal sin to a focus on invading gods and demonic DNA, and where Christ’s prophecy concerning
“the days of Noah” is altered to fit the Nephilim scenario. Additionally, in
the emerging Nephilim Eschatology the Genesis 3:15 account
is also abused, and reinterpreted along the lines of “Serpent Seed” adherents to
fit this false end-time message. Tom Horn, the biggest purveyor of the Nephilim
Eschatology scenarios, has explained how Genesis 6 and Genesis 3:15 are mixed together to create the new hybrid Serpent Seed doctrine:
Daniel’s verse
[Dan. 2:43] troubled [Chuck]
Missler
and [Mark] Eastman because it seemed to indicate that the same phenomenon that
occurred in Genesis chapter 6—where
non-human species or “non-seed” mingled with human seed and produced Nephilim—would happen again in the end
times.
When this verse from Daniel is
coupled with Genesis 3:15
, which says, “And I will put enmity between thee
and the woman, and between thy seed [
zera, meaning “offspring,”
“descendents,” or “children”] and her seed,” an incredible tenet emerges
—that Satan has seed, and that it is at
enmity with Christ.
[4]
[bold added; brackets in original]
The
“Satanic seed” mentioned above is taught to
be a literal, physical, and biological “Serpent Seed”
—one that is
genetically passed on to successive descendents by the devil and his supposed actual physical offspring. This is completely
at odds with the context and actual teaching of the Genesis 3:15 passage and is a deviant view.

In
subsequent writings, Tom Horn continues this theme by postulating that the
coming Antichrist will be an actual biological descendent
of Satan
. This forms the basis of the newly emerging Nephilim Eschatology heresy:
Given the abundant and universal prophecies
that the “end times” will witness what we have been calling a
‘reopening of the gates of heaven’ and the descending of a ‘savior,’ it’s
important to note that from the Middle Ages forward, many church leaders have believed that the Antichrist would ultimately
represent the return of the Nephilim—the union of a demon and a human
….

Phobos clarifies this for Joe in our novel,
The Ahriman Gate:


Joe
raised the special container with a heavy sigh. “So, if Apollyon is
somehow embodied in Apol, we could actually be carrying the embryo of the Antichrist here?”

 
That’s
correct. According to the Bible, the
Antichrist will be ‘the son of
perdition,’ the male progeny of the Greek apoleia, or Apollyon.
The
implication couldn’t be clearer—the Man
of Sin will be the physical offspring of the destroyer demon, a transgenic of
the highest order.”
[AG, pp. 326-327]….

 
Yet any day now, he told himself, he
[Apol/Apollyon] would triumph. His son,
the
son of perdition,
would inevitably be conceived. It had to. The Enigma was
about to open, and the Master would step through it.
He would expect a
body, a host for his transmigration;
the
biblical seed of Satan
depended on it.[5]
[AG, pp. 157-158]
The above excerpt appeared
in an online advertisement for Tom Horn’s 2007 book, Nephilim Stargates: the Year 2012 and the Return of the Watchers. It
is important to observe the mechanics of this quote.  Horn has included his fictional narrative, The Ahriman Gate as if it were a credible source, blending it into his revived “Serpent
Seed” teaching. Notice how Horn concludes this narrative from his fictional book (The Ahriman Gate)—writing in his nonfictional
book (Nephilim Stargates)
as he
speculates on the return of this Nephilim race:
If the Antichrist is in fact at length the physical offspring of a demon, not
only will he be the exact opposite of Jesus (son of God) but
the forerunner of the return of the
Nephilim
. This fact could be contemporary given that Jesus said the end
times
would be as the days of Noah…
.[6]
This strange mixing of fiction and nonfiction is becoming a familiar trend in evangelical authors. It appears to be a highly effective and emotive method of promoting themes that are opposed to the Word of God. Fiction characteristically engages the reader by its imagery and fantasy that provoke feelings and emotions. Researcher Christine
Pack picked up on this trend in her recent review of The Harbinger:
Much like William P. Young’s troublesome book The
Shack, The Harbinger
also has a fictional character who is teaching things
that are contrary to Scripture
, but which the author wants to claim as truth.
Of course, when pressed on the biblical problems with the teachings, both Young
and [Jonathan] Cahn have resorted to saying, But it’s only a fictional
character! The problem with this is that Young and Cahn both personally believe
what they have written, and are seeking to teach a wide audience of readers
what they believe to be true, while hiding behind the label “Fiction.”
[7]

The same
could be said of Tom Horn, who relies heavily upon mythological fables for his fantastic theologies. Horn and his many cohorts, such as Chuck Missler (see quotations at the top of this article), are all promoting a new variation on the Serpent Seed heresy, but this time around with a definite eschatological bent. Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman have described their view of this demonic-human sexual encounter in their book Alien Encounters:

The notion that the Antichrist would be born by the union of an incubus and a human female dates back at least several hundreds of years to the Middle Ages…. The notion that fallen angels can consort with a human female and produce viable offspring is quite startling and indeed foreign to most of us in the 20th century…. If Satan and his minions were capable of this in the days of Noah, there is every reason to believe that they still are…. Suffice it to say that if angels can appear physically; take men by the hand; fight with men; and form eyes, ears, skin, etc., then the manifestation of reproductive organs is also within their capabilities. (pp. 279-280) [bold added]
 

DID SATAN SPAWN “A REPTILIAN RACE”?
Heavily
laced with extra-biblical revelation, freemasonry, and pagan mythology, Tom Horn’s teachings
expand and further embellish this newly engineered “Serpent Seed” teaching.
In the following excerpt Horn launches into far-fetched vistas in his surmisings about hybrid, mythological, godlike creatures re-appearing in the end
times:
…Yet upon reading Virgil’s text, the divine son that comes of the
Sibyl’s prophecy [pagan oracle] is a savior unknown to Biblical theology. “He” is to be spawned of “a new breed of
men
sent down from heaven” who receive “the life of gods, and see Heroes with gods commingling.” According
to the Sibyl’s prediction, this “messiah” would be the son of Jupiter and come
when the Roman god Saturn returned to reign over the earth in a new golden age
(the Novus Ordo Seclorum), when Apollo rises again through mystical “life”
power given to him from the gods.

…According to the Sibyl, the New Order of the Ages occurs when a special “son” is born on earth, a new
messiah who comes of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” when “heroes”
and “gods” are blended together. This sounds eerily similar to what the
Watchers did during the creation of
Nephilim
, to what scientists are doing this century through the creation of transgenic human-animal
chimeras
, and to what the Bible actually describes as the Antichrist being the “son” of perdition” (2 Th 2:3, Apoleia,
from which we make Apollyon, the demon destroyer). Note the similarity of the
names Apollo and Apollyon.

He will represent the embodiment of a very old super-intellegent [sic]
spirit.
As Jesus Christ was the
“seed of the woman” (Gen. 3:15), he will be the “seed of the
serpent.”
 Though his
arrival in the form of a man was foretold by numerous Scriptures, the broad
masses will not recognize him for what he is:
paganism’s ultimate incarnation—the “beast” of Revelation
13:1.
[8]
[bold added]
Quoting the
late J.R. Church, former co-host of the syndicated Christian television program
Prophecy in the News with Gary
Stearman, Horn promotes the idea of a “reptilian race”—literal descendent
offspring of the “Serpent Seed”—in his book Apollyon
Rising 2012
:
J.R. Church makes an interesting point that since this
activity [demons mating with humans] was satanic in nature, it refers to
the “seed of the serpent” that was at
enmity with Christ. “The concept of
a
reptilian race
continues throughout the Bible as a metaphoric symbol of the
devil,” he wrote in his
Prophecy in the
News
magazine, February 2009. “Later Scriptures add the term ‘dragon,’ with
the implication that these
other-worldly
creatures were designed with the DNA code of a reptilian race
.” Church went
on to state how some of these satanic creatures were depicted as “bat-like
gargoyles, or winged dragons” in ancient art, and that
we should not be surprised that “a humanoid-type reptilian race could
cohabit with human women
and produce
a race of giants.
[9]
[bold added]

It must be pointed out that nowhere in Scripture can one find any reference to a reptilian race of satanic-human deviants. This is utterly wild conjecture. How rational evangelicals can give any credence to these preposterous suppositions remains to be explained.

PROMOTING AND PROPAGATING “SERPENT SEED” HERESY
Both Horn
and Stearman promote other popular authors peddling the same heresy. Douglas
Hamp, author of Corrupting the Image: Angels, Aliens, and the Antichrist Revealed
, is a case in
point. Hamp’s book has been heavily promoted on the Internet. Note Hamp’s
nonfictional book description—as this book is listed in many online ministry
bookstores—including Horn’s and Stearman’s:
Something ominous is coming upon the
world: it is Satan’s final effort in the battle to destroy the image that man
was created in, which has been raging since the beginning of time. If Satan can
destroy the image, then he can avert his own destruction.
The prophecy of Genesis 3:15 states the serpent will one day mix his
seed with humanity as a counterfeit of the Messiah.
Jesus told us that the
last days will be like the days of Noah when
fallen angels mixed their seed with humanity. In the Book of Daniel
we read that “they” will again
mingle
with the seed
of men. How so? Satan will use man’s desire to be his own god
to deceive him into believing the ultimate lie – that his fallen messengers are
both the creators and saviors of man. He will not do this openly but will
deceive mankind through demons which are masquerading as ”aliens” who are
spreading the message that the inhabitants of the earth can evolve to be like
them and obtain transcendent powers. Finally,
the seed of the Serpent will come; he will be a man who will be
greater than his fellows, who will understand sinister schemes and shall rise
up and become the Antichrist. That day of fulfillment is nearly upon us!

The titles of his book evidence the same fascination with “Serpent Seed” themes:

Hamp is a mainstream evangelical. Here is Hamp’s bio
as it appears with his book description:
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Douglas Hamp, author of Discovering
the Language of Jesus, The First Six Days and Corrupting the Image earned his
MA in the Hebrew Bible and the Ancient Near East from the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, Israel. During his three years in Israel, he studied both modern and
biblical Hebrew, biblical Aramaic, Koine Greek and other ancient languages as
well as ancient texts and the archeology of the Bible. He has served as an
assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, where he teaches at the School
of Ministry, Spanish School of Ministry and Calvary Chapel Bible College
Graduate School. Douglas has given numerous lectures on biblical languages,
creationism and the end times in the United States and internationally. Douglas
has been endorsed by Dr. Kenton Beshore, President of World Bible Society, Dr.
John Morris, President Institute for Creation Research, Ken Ham, Founder and
President Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, Joseph Farah, Chief
Executive Officer WorldNetDaily.com Inc., Carl Westerlund Th.M, Director Calvary
Chapel Costa Mesa School of Ministry and Graduate School, Dr. Stan Sholar,
Retired Aerospace Scientist, Dr. Bill Spear Director Mountain Ministries,
Dillon, Colorado Pastor Chuck Smith and Albert Cerussi, Congregational Coleader
of Ben David Messianic Congregation. Douglas is a committed follower of Jesus.
He lives with his wife and three children in Southern California.
[12]
As a former assistant pastor of a large evangelical
congregation, with the backing of many well-known Christian leaders, Hamp is
not easily dismissed in regard to these false teachings. Many will heed,
follow, or promote what he teaches based on such credentials and glowing
endorsements. This means that these
“Serpent Seed” false teachings are rapidly being diffused
across a vast spectrum of churches. The implications are staggering. These
“Serpent Seed” teachings are reaching people in the pews, most of whom have no idea about its sordid history and offensive ideology, and many who are only minimally acquainted with how to read their Bible. As David James has recently stated, “The heart of a biblical hermeneutic is the commitment to understanding the literary context of a passage.” But many people have already been influenced by the new coded Bible methods, and have already accepted the integration of occult, pagan and extra-biblical source materials into various end-time scenarios.

Hamp was a featured speaker at the Branson Summit
2012: the Final Prophecies Are Here conference held July 13-15 with Horn,
Stearman, Chuck Missler, Joseph Farah, Jonathan Cahn, L.A. Marzulli, Bill
Federer, and Noah Hutchings, et al.[13] And L.A. Marzulli, profiled in
Part One of this article series, addressed the topic:
The Final End
Game—
Seed of the Serpent.”[14]
DID SATAN BEGAT CAIN?
Tinkering
with the biblical text in this manner to extract such prurient doctrine is not
new. What makes the newer strains of this false teaching even more invasive
than the original, besides its seductive and lascivious eschatology, is the easy availability and rapid accessibility to infect multitudes
of souls on the interconnected cyber super-highway.
Here
is an article excerpt from another Christian writer entitled, “The Serpent Seed
– Part 1.”
While questioning the veracity of the other troublesome elements inherent
in the “Serpent Seed” false teaching, the author favorably links to the
websites of both Steve Quayle (quoted in Part One of this article) and Tom Horn.
(In a separate posting, he favorably reviews Douglas Hamp’s book cited above, Corrupting
the Image
:
Angels, Aliens, and the Antichrist Revealed.
)[15]
Note how often this author refers to “speculation”:
…I think that all the inhabitants of the ark were of
unadulterated DNA and that the seed of Cain, if there ever was
such a thing, disappeared with the flood. However I know of one expositor (whom
I highly respect) who speculates that Japheth had nephilim tainted DNA although I do not know how that is possible as
I described above. It could be that Noah had another wife at some point and
that Shem and Japheth do not share the same mother. However, considering that
God’s purpose of the flood was to rid the world of human/nephilim DNA then I cannot see how God would allow a nephilim hybrid onto the
ark. There is
speculation that the serpent (Satan?) who tempted Eve, actual [sic] seduced her
and was the father of Cain… for now, let’s assume that this scenario is true.
That would make Cain the serpent’s seed as
would all the hybrids, nephilim, and chimeras as described in Genesis chapter 6
and elsewhere, just in a different manner or by different entities.
The serpent’s seed would be a being
that is
either the offspring of the
watchers
or has had their DNA altered like maybe with an anal probe on board a
flying saucer.
[16]
[bold, color, underscore added]




Did
Satan copulate with Eve producing Cain—the physical, literal, genetic offspring
of Satan, the Serpent? Of course not! This is rank heresy! This heresy is responsible for much horrible racism! The author failed
to definitively and unapologetically point out this obvious false teaching, but
instead gives deference to his favored authors. He then propagates these
deceptions by following a familiar descent into the now familiar UFO lunacy which is also derived from
Nephilim Eschatology.

The
author of this article does allude to the fact that there is little difference
between Satan’s “seed” producing Cain
and the Watcher’s “seed” producing
Nephilim.
In both cases they are
referred to as “Serpent Seed”
! And herein lies the problem. It illustrates the evolution of an entirely new variation of the old
“Serpent Seed” heresy. This pernicious doctrine has terrible roots, and the potential to produce terrifying fruits.

Just
as those who blame the Flood on the mythical Nephilim, overlooking mankind’s
sin (thereby diminishing the Gospel message), purveyors of the “Serpent Seed”
heresy bypass the first reference to the Gospel in the Bible (Genesis 3:15)—to
propagate their wicked tales and X-rated suppositions. Where will this false teaching take the church? We can look to its origins for a clue.

  
      
WILLIAM
BRANHAM: FATHER OF THE SERPENT SEED HERESY
Chronicling
the “Rise of Charismatic Dominionism,” Herescope
posted an article last summer tracing the “Serpent Seed” heresy, and other
currently popular deceptions, back to the Latter Rain movement of the 1940s,
specifically to a false teacher named William Branham. This is significant because Branham’s aberrant beliefs have formed the foundation of the doctrines of the New Apostolic Reformation movement:
Al Dager, in his
key book VENGEANCE IS OURS: THE CHURCH IN DOMINION (1990) chronicled the
early history of the various Dominionist streams. He examined the phenomenon of
“Charismatic Dominionism” which began in the Latter Rain movement
during the 1940s. (Dager, p. 49) Key leaders included Franklin Hall, who taught
that “fasting” could be “a means of bringing about revival and
the ‘restoration’ of the Church” in the endtime days. Hall, who went off
the deep end into
UFO-ology and demon gods,
astrology and mythology, taught that men could become “immortal while in
their present flesh-and-blood bodies.” (Dager, p. 51, 53)




William Branham, a pentecostal
preacher who heard “the Voice” and went into trances, (Dager, p. 57)
was influenced by Hall’s strange teachings. Branham came up with a doctrine
that the Church was going through evolutionary “progressive stages of
sanctification,” based on his synthesis of “the Zodiak, [sic] the
Egyptian pyramids, and the written Scriptures.”(Dager, p. 55)
Branham concocted an extremely
controversial “Serpent Seed” teaching, which is “based on a
twisted interpretation of Genesis 3:13” that Eve was sexually seduced by
the serpent and produced a genetically mutant offspring.
(Dager, p. 56)[18] [bold
added]
In
a 1986 issue of his Media Spotlight newsletter Dager provides further
background to Branham’s “Serpent Seed” false teaching. Note the similarities to the modern variation proffered by Tom Horn and his associates:
The Serpent’s Seed

In spite of his
apparent humility and consecration, Branham
had great difficulty controlling a strident, hateful attitude toward women.
In
his own poor English, transcribed from a sermon, Branham stated, “But I
remember when my father’s still up there running, I had to be out there with
water and stuff, see young ladies that wasn’t over seventeen, eighteen years,
up there with a man my age now, drunk. And they’d have to sober them up and
give them black coffee, to get them home to cook their husband’s supper. Oh,
something like that, I said, ‘I… This was my remarked [sic] then, THEY’RE NOT
WORTH A GOOD CLEAN BULLET TO KILL THEM WITH IT.’ That’s right. And I hated
women. That’s right. And I just have to watch every move now, to keep from
still thinking the same thing.”
25 

This attitude toward women may have played a part in the
development of
Branham’s bizarre “Serpent Seed” teaching. This was
based on a
twisted interpretation of Genesis 3:13, where Eve is recorded as
saying, “The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.” The word
“beguiled” Branham defined as “seduced sexually.” He
claimed that Satan and Eve engaged in an adulterous affair out of which Cain
was born. Since that time evil has passed from generation to generation through
women, who keep the seed of the serpent alive.
26 He seemed to think
that women are responsible for the evil in the world because of their
enticements.

The “Serpent’s Seed” teaching
obviously indicated that Branham didn’t take the Scriptures literally, where we
read, “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived and bare
Cain…” (Genesis 4:1)
.[19] [bold added]

 

Here is Branham’s “Serpent Seed”
offensive, bizarre and extremely heretical teaching in his own words:

 

THE
TREE IN THE GARDEN HAS TO BE JESUS. All right. If the Tree Of Life is a person, then the Tree of the
Knowledge of Good and Evil is a person
ALSO. It can’t be otherwise. Thus the Righteous One and the Wicked One stood
side by side there in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel 28:13a
“Thou (Satan) hast been in Eden, the garden of God.”

Here
is where we receive the true revelation of the `Serpent’s seed.’ Here is what really happened in the Garden of
Eden. The Word says that Eve was
beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent.
It says
in Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the
field which the Lord God had made.” This beast was so close to a human
being (and yet was pure animal) that he could reason and talk. He was an
upright creature and was somewhat in between a chimpanzee and a man, but closer
to a man. He was so close to being human
that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to
conceive.
When this happened, God cursed the serpent. He changed every bone
in the serpent’s body so that he had to crawl like a snake.

Notice
what God said to them in the garden. 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.” If we give credit to the Word
that the woman did have a Seed, then the
serpent must have surely had a seed also.
If the Seed of the woman was a
man-child apart from the man, then the
seed of the serpent will have to be in the same pattern
, and that is another male must be born apart
from human male instrumentality….

As
the Seed of the woman was literally God reproducing Himself in human flesh, so the seed of the serpent is the literal
way that Satan found he was able to open the door to himself into the human
race.
It was impossible for Satan (for he is only a CREATED spirit-being)
to reproduce himself in the manner which God reproduced Himself, so the Genesis account tells how he
produced his seed and introduced or injected himself into the human race. Also
recall that Satan is called the `serpent.’ It is his seed or injection into the
human race we are speaking of.

Before Adam ever had carnal
knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And that one
born of it was Cain. Cain was of (born of, begotten of) that “Wicked
One”.

I John 3:12. The Holy Spirit in John could not in one place call Adam the
“Wicked One” (for that is what he would be if he fathered Cain) and
in another place call Adam the “Son of God” which he was by creation.
Luke 3:38. Cain turned out in character like his father, a bringer of death, a
murderer.
[20] [bold added]

 

According the Branham, the “sin”
in the Garden that led to the fall of mankind was not Adam’s and Eve’s disobedience in eating the forbidden fruit
from the forbidden tree—but a sexual act between Satan and Eve leading to the
birth of Cain! In order to perpetrate this false teaching, Branham had to twist
the text in other places too, like personifying the two trees. If “eating the
fruit” meant “sexual relations” then the trees would have to be persons instead
of real trees.

 

Branham’s false “Serpent Seed”
doctrine—destroys the foundation of the Gospel of salvation. Branham’s heresies from the 1940s are alive and well today within the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and IHOP movements. Shockingly, Branham’s beliefs are now rapidly gaining ground among conservative camps of evangelicals via the Nephilim Eschatology heresy. Heresy begets more heresy. Coupled with the Nephilim Eschatology fabrications, and the additional Genesis 6 distortions, Branham’s aberrant teachings are continuing to morph into even more frightening heresies posing as biblical truth.


‘SERPENT SEED’ TEACHINGS: BRITISH ISRAELISM and IDENTITY
One online author has referred to Branham’s
“Serpent Seed” heresy as “interspecies and interplanar adultery,”[21]
which highlights the sordid core of this damnable heresy. In a separate writing, while examining
the racist and anti-Semitic roots of Dominionism, this same writer links this
false teaching to the nasty twin offshoots known as British Israelism and Christian
Identity
.
(He is quoting from an article about the late charismatic evangelist
who founded her own temple, Aimee Semple McPherson[22]):
“…British-Israelism is a religious
doctrine first elaborated in 19th century England as a justification for
British colonialism. It claimed that the English Anglo-Saxons were one of the
so-called “ten lost tribes of Israel,” and that the British monarch
was the direct descendant of “the throne of King David.” In short,
the British were “God’s Chosen People.” The British-Israel movement
spread to Canada and the US at the turn of the century….”
 British Israelism spawned the Christian Identity movement, which was
incorporated in Los Angeles in 1948. Spawned from it are the Posse Comitatus,
Aryan Nations
, The Christian Patriot branch, The Committee of the States, the
Unorganized Militia and other white supremacy swill. 

Along
with Charles Parham, William Branham, reportedly also KKK, taught the “two seed” theory. 
·      “Now remember, Satan’s son was Cain…”
·       “Now remember that Eve got pregnant by
Satan
, and in the same day….”
70

“…The
essence of the “two seed”
theory
is that there are two races on earth: one godly and one satanic.”

“According
to the racist and anti-Semitic
two
seed” theory
, the white “Adamic” peoples descended from the
union of Adam and Eve. But there was also
another
race
beginning with Cain whose father was not Adam, but Satan — who mated
with Eve
in the guise of a serpent. The descendants of Cain became known as the
Jews. The Adamic peoples became the Aryans or Anglo-Saxons.
The Pre-Adamic (non-white) races were not
human at all, but descendants of the “beasts of the fields” described
in Genesis, without souls and no more than cattle in the eyes of their
Aryan betters.
All three races could interbreed, but the non-Adamic blood
acted like a poison to exterminate the Aryan race. In the eyes of white
supremacists, race-mixing became a Satanic plot to exterminate God’s chosen
people, the white race.”

The above description shows just how ugly this Serpent Seed teaching is. The history of British Israelism and Identity movements are tied into the roots of the Latter Rain movement. See CHART. Compare
this hateful and ungodly teaching of a beastly race “without souls” (quoted above) to the updated concept currently being promoted by Tom Horn in a 2009 NewsWithViews article:
…an
alternative or additional reason for why the Watchers may have blended living
organisms exists…. To harmonize the ancient records, I came to believe that the
overriding motive for whatever the Watchers were doing with the DNA of various
species had to be understood within the context of their foremost goal, which
was to leave their plane of existence and to enter ours (Jude 6; 2 Pet 2:4). My
challenge then became to answer the question of how blending various species
would satisfy this goal or provide the Watchers with a method of departure from
‘high heaven’ and incarnation into man’s ‘habitation.’ While I will not take
time here to explain every detail (a 5-hour CD set called “As It Was In The Days Of Noah: The Return Of The
Nephilim”
that covers this and related material is available
from SurvivorMall.com), I eventually
hypothesized that the Watchers had to blend species in the way they did in
order to create a soul-less or spirit-less body into which they could
extend themselves.
The rationale is that every creature as it existed
originally had its beginning in God, who ordered each creature to reproduce
“after its own kind.” The phrase, “after its own kind”
verifies what kind of spirit can enter into an intelligent being at conception.
When the sperm of a dog meets ovum of a dog and life of a dog is formed, at the
first spark of life the spirit or personality of a dog enters that embryo and
it grows to become a dog in spirit and form. The spirit of a man does not enter
it, in the same way that a man is not born with the spirit of a horse or cow.
This creature/spirit integrity is part of the Divine Order and would have kept
the Watchers, who wanted to incarnate within the human realm (not just
‘possess’ creatures), from displacing the spirits of humans or animals and
replacing them with their own. How did they overcome this problem? Like
scientists are doing today, it appears based on the ancient records that they blended existing DNA of several living
creatures and made something that neither the spirit of man or beast would
enter at conception
, for it was neither man nor beast.

What
are the frightening implications of these incredibly unbiblical teachings given
the self-righteous religionist’s penchant to root out “undesirables” from the
camp? From the earth? Could we witness a resurgence of dreadful and despicable
deeds committed against human beings in ages past—in the name of God (Jn. 16:2)? The questions could go on and on…. Keep in mind that New Apostolic Reformation teaches there is a New Breed  of Elect Seed that will rule the earth, and it calls for a planetary purging of those elements (“seed”) that are deemed undesirable.

Herescope has already documented the ungodly heritage of related
“Serpent Seed” heresies as they tie into Dominionism:
The common thread
that held all of these groups together is that these “men are seeking to
establish the Kingdom of God on earth before Jesus returns” and that
“the Church must be united in a dominion mindset.”(Dager, p. 65) The most controversial teachings in this
lineage of heresies are various forms of
British-Israelism, Identity, and white
Aryan supremacy
— teachings which subtly and occasionally reappear throughout
Latter Rain teachings about their “destiny to rule the earth.”
[25]
(Dager, pp. 66-68)
Elsewhere,
Al Dager has warned about these “most controversial teachings” coming out the “Serpent
Seed” heresy and Dominionism (Kingdom Now):
Of a certainty, some
branches of the Kingdom Now Movement are more militant in their stance, and/or
more zealous in the propagation of their particular brand of Dominion Theology.

As we outline the more prominent of these movements we’ll see how they work
together, often without conscious collaboration, to establish the dominion
mindset within the Church. Some have even attained cult status among many
Christians. Whether one ascribes to the radical element or the passive, or
rests somewhere between the two, is not as important as
the overall threat to the Church that these movements present
through their aberrant teachings.
[26] [bold
added]
Al Dager
outlines the overtly racist and anti-Semitic doctrines of the Christian
Identity movement (closely related to British-Israelism). Note that “Israel-America” is an offshoot of British-Israelism, which possibly explains the current fascination with codes and prophecies that conjecture America’s role in endtime eschatology. This “Israel-America” belief closely parallels the teachings of Nephilim Eschatology, and patriotic Americans such as Joseph Farah and Jonathan Cahn have already been appearing with Tom Horn and Chuck Missler in public forums. It is inexplicable that these evangelical leaders would be associating with those whose teachings are so closely allied to racism and anti-Semitism! 

Make no mistake about itthe common denominator in doctrine in these movements is the “Serpent Seed” heresy. As Al Dager explained:

Identity 
The Identity Movement teaches that the Anglo-Saxon race
and their kin (Scandinavians, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, etc.) are the “lost
tribes” of Israel, who are destined as God’s chosen people to rule the
world. The full name of Identity is “Anglo-Israel-Identity
Movement
.”75
It is believed that, as God’s chosen
people whose king (or queen) sits on the throne of David (the British throne),
and whose lineage can be traced back through the Jewish patriarchs to Adam, the
Anglo-Saxon race has special favor with God.76
Israel-America” (comprised of Anglo and
related descendants in the United States)77 has a special anointing.
The nation of Israel that exists
today in the Middle East is considered a pretender to the name of Israel, being
allegedly comprised of certain Asian peoples known as “Kazars.” Thus
any biblical references to God’s prophesied dealings with Israel in the last
days are believed to have been fulfilled. Daniel’s seventieth week has come and
gone, as has anti-Christ, and now we must look forward to the establishment of
Yahweh’s Kingdom on earth. This is to be administered through the Anglo-Saxon
Christians who have come to recognize their unique destiny.
Though Identity is overtly anti-Semitic, its proponents claim that those
who are against them are the true anti-Semites….
Identity’s hatred
is not limited to Jews, however. Blacks and other non-whites are looked upon as
inferior beings
who may be allowed to enjoy the benefits of the kingdom
as long as they remain subject to their Anglo-Saxon superiors. They cannot hold
positions of significant authority, however, because the promises to Israel
belong only to the “true” Israelites: the Anglo-Saxon believers….
In view of
Identity’s racial policy, it isn’t surprising that radical racist groups such
as the neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan have joined
.79 For all their
error and their attacks against non-whites, these groups are zealously
moralistic (by their convoluted standards). Although Identity’s members consider themselves Christians their
ideology is more akin to salvation by race than salvation by grace.
They
welcome Aryan pagans into fellowship while mounting hate campaigns against
Christian Jews, blacks, and other non-whites.
This isn’t to say that all Identity People are overtly
racist, but their philosophy reflects a dangerous mindset that threatens to
exacerbate an already tense situation between races.
Their para-militarism and rebellion against constituted authority
combine to create a volatile situation that could someday erupt into full scale
racial warfare.
[27]
[bold added]

Dager continues to trace the progressive spread of Identity
and British-Israelism into the church and highlights inherent unbiblical tenets
within the movements, concluding with a final paragraph that explains the biblical truth:
Even older than the Latter Rain Movement, Identity found
fertile ground to propagate its own brand of Kingdom Theology among the
neo-Pentecostals of the mid-twentieth century. Seeing the opportunity to cloak
itself with the respectability of the Church, Identity has aligned with
neo-Pentecostalism, and today presents the
Anglo-Israel-Identity
Movement as “just as much a result of the work of the Holy Spirit as
the Charismatic renewal.”
80
Not all
who believe in British-Israelism are
part of Identity. But on the basis of little more than conjecture and hearsay, British-Israelism has found credibility
in the eyes of many otherwise sensible Christians. 
Yet even
if true, the very nature of British-Israelism
and the strife it engenders is contrary to the warning of Scripture that we not
be concerned with endless genealogies (I Timothy 1:4; Titus 3:9).
True
Israel consists of all who have come to God by faith in Jesus Christ, whether
Jew or Gentile (Romans 2:28-29). To God no one has any standing except by His
grace. In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, rich nor poor, bond nor free,
male nor female, but we are all one in Him (Galatians 3:26-29). As Jesus said,
God is able to turn stones into children of Abraham (Matthew 4:9), so who is
anyone to boast of his ancestry, especially an ancestry built on little more
than fanciful conjecture
?
[28]
[bold added]
Dager then profiles one of the most aggressive
forms of Dominionism derived from the Latter Rain (and tied to the “Serpent
Seed” heresy)
the Manifest(ed) Sons of God, which has some direct lineage to the current New Apostolic Reformation (NAR):
Manifested Sons Of God 

One of the most militant movements attempting to
establish the Kingdom of God on earth is the Manifested Sons of God.
This aberration came out of
the Latter Rain Movement under the “apostleship” of John Robert
Stevens
, a William Branham disciple
whose church in Redondo Beach, California, operated for a number of years as
the headquarters for the movement.
The Manifested Sons of God teachings are
perhaps the most definitive among Kingdom Now doctrines. They have all the
elements of classical dominion theory: immortalization, restoration of the
offices of apostles and prophets, absolute authoritarianism, attainment of
godhood
….
…Central
to Manifested Sons of God doctrine
is the idea that sonship comes through higher revelation. The Christian life is
fragmented into stages of maturity: the first step is that of servant of God;
the next step is to become a friend of God; following this is to become a son
of God and, ultimately, gods ourselves. Yet the Scriptures demonstrate that we
are already all three: servants (Galatians 3:10), friends (John 15:14-15), and
sons (I John 3:1).
…As a
doctrine crucial to the Manifested Sons
of God
, perfection (success in living sinlessly) will result in
incorruptibility. This will qualify those who “overcome” as worthy to
rule in the Kingdom of God.
Whether
Jesus will return at the beginning, during, or after the Millennium is open to
conjecture. Some who have been touched by the Manifested Sons of God influence even believe He will not return
physically, but rather that Christ and
the Church are becoming one in nature and essence, and that the Church, as
the incarnation of God, will manifest Christ on earth
.
…The teachings of most Kingdom Now groups can be traced
to the Manifested Sons of God.
And not only do they come from the Manifested Sons of
God, they must ultimately return to the “pure”
Manifested Sons of God doctrine: man need not die; by taking hold
of secret knowledge he can become like God…
.[29] [bold,
color, underscore added]
This
Manifested Sons of God false teaching that the “church as the incarnation of
God, will manifest Christ on earth” means
that the church becomes Christ—takes the place of Christ upon the earth.
If
so, then there would then be no purpose for Christ to return. The church would
wield the same power, sovereignty and authority on earth as the Lord Jesus
Christ, in His physical absence. This blasphemous doctrine becomes important as
we continue to examine the “Serpent Seed” heresy. And it may explain why the focus has shifted to the return of the Nephilim instead of the return of Jesus Christ.

A chart showing the lineage of these groups promoting these heresies is posted at Apprising Ministries HERE



MANIFEST SONS GIVE BIRTH TO “NEW BREED”
FALSE TEACHINGS
One critic of the New Apostolic Reformation identifies yet another aberrant relative to the “Serpent Seed” heresy threatening
the evangelical world today—“Joel’s Army”:

Branham was killed in a car accident
in 1965, but his Manifest Sons of God movement, the direct predecessor of
Joel’s Army, lived on within a cluster
of hyper-charismatic churches. In the 1980s, Branham’s teachings took on new
life at the Kansas City Fellowship (KCF) [now IHOP], a group of popular self-styled
apostles and prophets who used the Missouri church as a launching pad for
national careers promoting outright
Joel’s
Army
theology.[30]
[bold added]
The Kansas City Fellowship evolved into the popular IHOP movement of today (See the Herescope post “IHOP & the NAR” and related articles for this history). The chosen
“seed” of “Joel’s Army” would come to be known as “the New Breed”:
One of the key tenets of the Latter Rain cult is the
concept of a “NEW BREED” or a “NEW SEED”
of elite super-Christians, the formation of a superior race of young generation believers who will manifest
great power to conduct end-time signs and wonders and rule over the Earth.
Bob Jones of the Kansas City Prophets taught that there
were going to be children from an “elected seed
generation, handpicked in heaven from the best of every bloodline,
and the offspring of the original apostles. These are the “chosen generation of all history” who will form the Bride of Christ
on Earth…. 



These “Elected Seeds” will make up part
of the “New Breed.”
This “New Breed” is an elite group of believers endowed with
supernatural power that enables them to be part of the
“dread warriors” that
God is raising up in our generation. John Wimber taught that this
army would
eventually subdue the nations….
[31]
[bold added]

Jewel Grewe of Discernment Ministries and her late
husband Travers van der Merwe,
also
traced these elitist doctrines back to the aberrant schools of Gnosticism,
Mysticism, and Rosicrucianism in their booklet, Strange Fire: the Rise of Gnosticism in the Church. Note these
excerpts that indicate that there is an elite mentality amongst those who teach these doctrines, and they believe they are an elect breed:

2. Elitism
The
mystic “gnosis” (or knowledge) is only taught to the elite
those who have a special capacity beyond the force of reason and the flesh…. There seems to be a special
“place” for a special “people” who are called out or chosen.

That is how the spiritual elitism comes forth. It is this Gnostic thought
that is behind many of the aberrant teachings of the Latter Rain Movement…

(SF, pg. 11.) [bold added]


6. Divinity
To
the Gnostic,… the only way for man to know about God is through gnosis
(self knowledge). As a result, he will experience and know the Divine Spark
within himself and know he is a member of the Elite – a “Manifest Son of
God”.
(SF, pg. 12)

Chapter 3: A Gnostic Gospel?
Having
defined and illustrated the doctrinal core of Gnosticism, we can now
effectively identify Gnostic thought as it emerges in the church today. There
is a growing network comprised of loosely linked groups
with a common
Gnostic theme
. They refer to themselves in many ways. They use Biblical
sounding titles such as “Overcomers”, “The First Fruits”,
“Manifest Sons of God”, “The Elect”, “A New
Breed”, “Son of Man Company” and even “The Manchild
Company”. These groups can be involved in a wide spectrum of teaching from
anti-Semitism, Prophets and Apostles, Restoration, Kingdom Now Theology, and
most sinister of all – the
New Age philosophy. 

Though diverse in their outworking, these groups have a common origin in three main bodies of teaching: the Latter Rain Movement, the New Order and the Rosicrucian Order…. (SF, pg. 14) [bold added]

All
do not necessarily use this terminology, but the premises are the same. The
language is becoming increasingly militant as the “Army of God”,
“Gideon’s Army”, or “Joel’s Army” take shape. A common thread
is that they are expecting a “New Order”….
(SF, pg. 27)
[bold added]

A
“prophet” from the Kansas City Fellowship in an interview session in
1988 proclaims that the Lord looked at him and said, “I have called the
best of every blood line in earth unto this generation . . . I have elected to
bring them forth in this generation . . . the ELECT GENERATION.
[Bob Jones
transcribed from 1988 tapes][32] (SF, pg. 28)
One observer, testing
the bad fruit of the “elected seed” of these “New Breed” heresies reports:
Ernie Gruen, a local pastor who
initially promoted and gave citywide credibility to KCF pastors in the early
1980s, cut his connections in 1990. Concerned about KCF’s plans to push its
teachings worldwide, Gruen published a 132-page insider’s account, based on
taped sermons and conversations and interviews with parents who had enrolled
their kids in KCF’s Dominion school.
According to Gruen’s report, students at the school were taught that
they were a “super-race” of the “elected seed” of all the
best bloodlines
of all generations
— foreknown, predestined, and
hand-selected from billions of others to be part of the “end-time Omega
generation.”
Though he’d once promoted these
doctrines himself, Gruen became convinced that the movement was turning into an
end-times cult, marked by what he summarized as “spiritual threats, fears,
and warnings of death,” “warning followers to
beware of other Christians” and exhibiting “a ‘super-race’
mentality
toward the training of their children.”
[34] [bold, color added]
This sounds similar to the
recent Nephilim Eschatology that teaches that other “serpent seed”
descendents—half-demon, half-human creatures called Nephilim—are back on planet
earth with an evil end-time procreation plan. In light of the multiple heresies
of British Israelism and Christian Identity, other ominous and disturbing
aspects of the “New Breed” teaching relating to Dominionism come to light. Speaking of a former victim
of a Joel’s Army church, the writer notes:
 She writes under a pseudonym out of fear of
physical reprisals.
She may have real cause for concern.
As Wimber, the late founder of The Vineyard, put it in one of his most famous
and fiery sermons, one that is still frequently cited by Joel’s Army followers:
“Those in this army will have His kind of power
…. Anyone who wants to harm them must die.[35]
[bold added]
As far back
as 2005, Herescope has warned Christians
about these spreading false doctrines and their viable potential to jumpstart false
beliefs into ungodly actions:
There has been a noticeable increase in warfare talk
coming out of the New Apostolic Reformation camp in neoevangelicaldom. For
decades leaders of the Latter Rain cult (which gave rise to the New Apostolic
Reformation) has spoken in aggressive military terminology about taking
dominion of the Earth for “kingdom” purposes. Much of this language
was highly spiritualized.
But lurking
behind the surface was always a threat of REALLY taking up the sword to achieve
dominion.
[36]
[bold added]
Jewel Grewe
has written extensively about this “New Breed” heresy. Her booklet, Joel’s Army, is available at Discernment
Ministries.)[37] See also Herescope posts such as “IHOP’s New Breed Leaders” and examine the exhibits depicting the blonde-haired, blue-eyed babies that were used by the Kansas City Prophets to create the perfect image of this “new breed” of “elect seed.” 



Al Dager explained that Franklin Hall, an early teacher of Dominionism (see Herescope post “Who Invented Dominionism?”), believed that this elect “man-child company” could “choose who will occupy the earth… those who do not find favor with the man-child company will be executed.”(p. 98) This violent teaching is still widely prominent in the NAR today.  For example, recently Ron Gatlin’s OpenHeaven.com sent out an e-mail newsletter on July 19, 2012, with an article titled “Supernatural Cleansing,” which described a vision that he had about the new breed and elect seed: 

The Lord looked up at me from the sheep He was working on and said, “I am cleansing and selecting my sheep for breeding stock for the future.” I knew by the Spirit He was speaking of cleansing and healing His people in preparation for becoming seeds of the kingdom sowed into this world during and after the process of cleansing the earth.

The Lord is supernaturally cleansing His people individually. He is also selecting His army. The collective army is being cleansed of those who are unwilling to endure His loving but extreme cleansing process….
As a young man I worked summers on a large cattle ranch in Texas and later as a mature man owned a large herd of cattle. I remember that at some point the cattle were gathered, and the best cows were selected to remain in the herd as breeding stock for the next season. Others were sold to go to other places for other purposes. Some cows were not selected because they did not have a calf with them. Either they had failed to breed and give birth to a live calf, or they had lost it someway.

…God is in the process of cleansing, preparing, and selecting an army of pure-hearted holy humble and mature kingdom sons for the purpose of multiplying the seed of the kingdom into the God-cleansed earth and the heavenly atmosphere upon and around it. [bold added]


Ron McGatlin’s radical ideas above, which fully represent the current beliefs of the NAR, dovetail perfectly into the Nephilim Eschatology. And this is a very disturbing fact.




CONCLUDING REMARKS

This lengthy article lays out the basic documentation for a very serious crisis that is rapidly surfacing in the evangelical world. It is outside the scope of this article to refute these emerging doctrines, but rather our purpose was to demonstrate how the emerging Nephilim Eschatology has incorporated elements of the highly offensive Serpent Seed heresy. Other articles we have written** lay out the broad scope and wide influence of these popular end-time teachers and their wild speculations about early Genesis and the last days.

It is time for those in leadership to separate from those who are teaching these virulent blasphemies.

Ultimately,
what we believe will have a direct bearing upon what we do—either good or bad. The reader is urged to flee from these Nephilim Eschatology teachings, and its progenitor, the
original “Serpent Seed” heresy. Let us and cling to the pure and unadulterated
Word of God and His Spirit to guide us in these ever-darkening days.

THE TRUTH:
What is the Truth in Scripture? Genesis
3:15 speaks of a promised Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ, who would defeat
Satan at the Cross with a fatal blow: “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.”
 

 Genesis 4:1 explicitly states how Cain came to
be: Now the man [Adam] had relations with
his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain…”
The Bible says that Adam was Cain’s biological father, not Satan!

Note
what else Scripture says. In the Bible, those who follow the devil in sin and
rebellion are his offspring, while those who turn from sin to follow Christ are
His offspring—the children of God:
  • The one who
    practices sin is of the devil
    ; for the devil has
    sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy
    the works of the devil. No one who is
    born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin,
    because he is born of God
    (1 Jn. 3:8-9)
    [bold added]
  • By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious:
    anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does
    not love his brother (1 Jn. 3:10). [bold added]
  • I know that you are
    Abraham’s descendants
    ; yet you seek to
    kill Me, because My word has no place in you…They answered and said to Him,
    Abraham is our father.”
    Jesus  said to them, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham…Jesus
    said to them, “If God were your
    Father, you would love Me
    , for I proceeded forth and have come from God,
    for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me…. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer
    from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth
    in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies (Jn.
    8: 37, 39, 42, 44).
    [bold added]
  • For this is the message which you have heard from the
    beginning, that we should love one another;
    not as Cain,
    who was of the evil one and slew his brother.
    And for what reason did he slay him? Because his deeds were evil,
    and his
    brother’s were righteous
    (1 Jn. 3:11-12).
Note
these precious truths from Genesis 3:15 explained by esteemed Bible commentator Matthew Henry centuries ago—truths betrayed
and forsaken by those preaching the “Serpent Seed” heresy. Genesis 3:14-15 is all about JESUS, our Redeemer!
3:14, 15 God passes sentence; and he begins where the sin began, with the
serpent. The devil’s instruments must share in the devil’s punishments. Under
the cover of the serpent, the devil is sentenced to be degraded and accursed of
God; detested and abhorred of all mankind: also to be destroyed and ruined at
last by the great Redeemer, signified by the breaking of his head. War is
proclaimed between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. It is the
fruit of this enmity, that there is a continual warfare between grace and
corruption, in the hearts of God’s people. Satan, by their corruptions, buffets
them, sifts them, and seeks to devour them. Heaven and hell can never be
reconciled, nor light and darkness; no more can Satan and a sanctified soul.
Also, there is a continual struggle between the wicked and the godly in this
world. A gracious promise is here made
of Christ, as the Deliverer of fallen man from the power of Satan.
Here was
the dawn of the gospel day: no sooner was the wound given, than the remedy was
provided and revealed. This gracious revelation of a Saviour came unasked, and
unlooked for. Without a revelation of mercy, giving some hope of forgiveness,
the convinced sinner would sink into despair, and be hardened. By faith in this
promise, our first parents, and the patriarchs before the flood, were justified
and saved. Notice is given concerning Christ. 
1. His incarnation, or coming in
the flesh. It speaks great encouragement to sinners, that their Saviour is the
Seed of the woman, bone of our bone, Heb 2:11,14. 
2. His sufferings and death;
pointed at in Satan’s bruising his heel, that is, his human nature. And
Christ’s sufferings are continued in the sufferings of the saints for his name.
The devil tempts them, persecutes and slays them; and so bruises the heel of
Christ, who is afflicted in their afflictions. But while the heel is bruised on
earth, the Head is in heaven.

3. His victory over Satan thereby. Christ baffled
Satan’s temptations, rescued souls out of his hands. By his death he gave a
fatal blow to the devil’s kingdom, a wound to the head of this serpent that
cannot be healed.
As the gospel gains
ground, Satan falls.

light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness
of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in
Me.”

profiled on Stearman’s PITN by Bob Ulrich on Oct. 3, 2010: “Gary Stearman
interviews Tom Horn and L. A. Marzulli in a comprehensive review of the
biblical fallen angels and their agenda. They discuss Genesis 6, where the
“sons of God” lusted after human women and took wives, thus producing giants.
They interfered with both animal and human genetics, creating giant animals as
well as human hybrids. They introduced
the seed of the serpent into the human race.
Because of that, God destroyed
the world with a flood, saving only those animals and humans that had not been
contaminated. Today, with the proliferation of UFOs, crop circles, cattle
mutilations and genetic tampering in labs all over the world, we feel it
necessary to address these phenomenon from a biblical perspective. Two of the
world’s leading experts, Tom Horn and L. A. Marzulli, lend their expertise to
the subject. They discuss how the prophecies of Apollyon falling to the Earth
in Revelation 9 and the war with Satan in Revelation 12 lays out their
diabolical agenda.“(DVD – 3 hours) [bold added]; See:
