FAITH COMMENTARY
"Genesis 3:15 KJV"

Under standing that common sense prevails when God communicates with you may cause you to question something: Has there ever been a time when you may have questioned that Eve biting an apple was the first sin?

Genesis 3:15 KJV tells you about that sin; it begins with God dressing Satan down for his contribution to it:

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.

This prophecy shows God putting enmity between Satan's seed and Eve's. Enmity is a barrier representing God's hatred and dislike towards something Satan has done, a barrier drawing attention to the need that He has to separate Satan's seed line from Eve's. Satan's seed line, having just been placed in motion, must be understood if you are to understand Original Sin; Webster's clarifies "enmity" for you:

a : ill with such as actuates a personal enemy *his act only increased the enmity of his rival* b : a condition marked by such ill will : hatred or antagonism especially when mutual *men settled in enmity toward their fellows* c : an instance of such ill will or hostility

Bruising thy head also refers to Satan and his remaining alive today shows that this part of the prophecy has not come to pass but the bruising of Christ Heel has:

His Heel was bruised when the Roman soldiers nailed him to the cross. Continuing in the Garden, Genesis 3:15 takes you to the "seed" part of this prophecy and exploring what took place there brings questions to the surface, questions concerning Satan's presence in the Garden that, when answered, sheds light on our subject: Based on a previous article about Cain and the Kenites, Jamie, of Hartsville, has asked if we can document two points that were made by that article and they were:

(1) That Cain started the Kenite bloodline and (2) that Satan was his father. Genesis 3:15 directs you towards that documentation as "sperm" is the reason God addresses Satan. The manuscripts show the meaning of "zera" which is the Hebrew word translated to "seed" in this prophecy: zera`, Hebrew 2233, Strong's; from Hebrew 2232 (zara`); seed; figurative fruit, plant, sowing-time, posterity :- × carnally, child, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time.

"Sperm's" meaning in the manuscripts fit's the translator's use of "seed" as it justifies God's fury towards Satan; fruit, child, and posterity indisputably illustrate that "sperm" is what God is talking about.

Knowing that Christ was coming through Eve's untainted bloodline, Satan seduced her; his seed impregnated her. This was his first attempt to block the birth of Christ

and his second attempt came when, through his Fallen Angels, he attempted seducing the daughters of Adam. Had Noah's wife and daughters not remained pure, Satan would have succeeded.

The first prophecy shows two bloodlines running through Eve…Satan's and Adam's. Twice, Satan's plan to block Christ failed as Cain and his Kenites came through Satan's bloodline and Seth and the Virgin Mary through Adam's Heavenly Seed through Mary brought Christ through this pure bloodline.

Genesis 4:1-2 winds Old Testament documentation down with Eve thanking God for Cain and Able. They were maternal twins with Cain being conceived through Satan's seed and Able through Adam's; maternal twins occur when two eggs are fertilized by different sperm and identical twins when an egg fertilized by a single sperm, splits:

[1] And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord [2] And she again bare his brother Abel. Taking "again" from "she again bare" the manuscripts show that Cain and Able were twins, "Again" being "yacaph" in the Hebrew manuscripts:

yacaph, Hebrew 3254, yaw-saf'; a primitive root; to add or augment (often adverbial to continue to do a thing) :- conceive again, continue, proceed (further).

To continue to do a thing shows Eve continuing in labor and giving birth to Cain's twin, Able.

Lastly, Old Testament Documentation concludes by you taking Cain's name back to the Hebrew manuscripts: 7069 (qanah); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe :- Cain, Kenite (-s).

Cain is "qanah" in the Hebrew and here the manuscripts identify him as the first child born as well as being the origin of the Kenite Tribe.

Our next article concludes Jamie's documentation; it takes you to the New Testament where studying a parable with Christ along with the assistance of the Greek manuscripts erases any remaining doubt.

Is it possible that there is more to God's Word than you have been taught?
