"Genesis 3:15 KJV Exposes Satan"

Genesis 3:15 KJV exposes Satan by bringing you the Bible’s first prophecy, Satan’s seducing Eve to bring Cain into our world:

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.

Enmity reflects God’s anger toward Satan for making the decision to have relations with Eve and now the contents of this article will be documenting this for you.

Playing a large role in documenting what this verse says is your Strong’s Concordance; it takes every word in your King James Bible back to the Manuscripts for you to learn how it is used and what it means.

Continuing with the First Prophecy, Genesis 3:3 KJV shows God ordering Eve to stay away from a certain tree:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

It is in the midst of the garden that you find the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and now you learn that Eve did Touch it. It was her eating of its fruit that led to God delivering on His promise, Eve bearing children and dying.

Touch” is the word that you pay attention to as understanding it leads to knowing what happened in the Garden.

Your Strong’s Concordance shows “Touch” coming from the Hebrew word “Naga” in the Manuscripts:

Naga’, Hebrew 5060, Strong’s; a primitive root; properly to touch, i.e. lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemism, to lie with a woman); by implication to reach.

Looking up “euphemism” in Webster’s you see it to be an inoffensive word yet it is substituted for harsh, indelicate or otherwise unpleasant.

The substitution of an agreeable or inoffensive word or expression for one that is harsh, indelicate, or otherwise unpleasant or taboo: allusion to an offensive thing by an inoffensive expression —

Taboo is representative of what Eve did when she responded to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, Satan’s “Touch”. “To lie with a woman” illustrates Satan, this tree, seducing Eve.

And now Genesis 3:7 KJV gives the results of Eve “Touching” the “Good and Evil” tree:

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

 

 


 

This First Prophecy makes it clear that an apple in no way is connected to Eve and her sin in the Garden. As a matter of fact, you will not find the word “Apple” anywhere in Genesis.

This makes you wonder: How could Eve biting an apple cause her to see that she was naked?

And next you ask: Could the purpose of Eve’s fig leaf apron be to cover an “Apple” or could it more reasonability be that her act with Satan brought about a need to cover her private parts?

Learning the truth about what happened in the beginning is important! Not understanding The First Prophecy in the Bible leads to you not understanding Genesis or Revelation; Satan is the Serpent in the Garden and the Dragon in Revelation.

Genesis 3:13 KJV shows Eve admitting Satan beguiled her:

And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil beguiled Eve and your Strong’s Concordance defines “Beguiled”, “Nasha” in the Hebrew manuscripts:

nasha', Hebrew 5377, Strong’s nasha', naw-shaw'; a primitive root; to lead astray, i.e. (mentally) to delude, or (morally) to seduce :- beguile

Your Webster’s shows what Beguiled means by defining “Seduced”:

1: a. To persuade or entice into partnership in sexual intercourse : practice seduction upon; specifically : to persuade (a female) to have sexual intercourse for the first time

Both Webster’s Third Edition and your Strong’s Concordance agree on what happened in The Garden; Eve Touching Satan in verse three is her having relations with him.

These verses in Genesis Chapter Three reveal what really took place in the Garden. God is saying that Satan seducing Eve brought a Second Bloodline into existence; it was Satan doing this that brought Cain into the world. Adam seducing Eve bringing Seth is the other bloodline as Seth was their first child to live. Cain murdering Abel stopped him from continuing Adams bloodline.

Genesis chapter four shows Satan’s offspring or prodigy beginning with Cain; chapter five gives Adam’s which begins with Seth.

Genesis 3:24 KJV shows God’s Tree guarding The Garden. This is the second of Two Trees that Genesis introduces to you, one Satan’s and the other God’s:

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Revealing Satan’s role in the Garden show God and him both having roles to play. You have the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” feeding deception to you and you have the “Tree of Life”, the Flaming Sword of Truth reaching out to you.

Do you recognize them both?
