Now this is going to be a very interesting article, and one that I had not been planning, for the subject matter only came to light a few days ago on the 14th November 2022. My earlier view on it was that the origins of The Adversary were just as Genesis 3:1 has it, that is, that The Serpent Creature was the most crafty, devious and cunning Beast of The Field that The Yahavah Yah had made, but as it turns out, I was duped by yet another corruption in the KJV Bible.
OK, so let’s get the crucial Scripture written here:
Genesis 3:1 (MCV) Now The Serpent Creature was more devious, cunning and crafty than any [Beast of The Field] which The Yahavah Yah (The Elohim) HAD MADE. And he said unto the woman (Eve), Yea, hath Yah said, Ye shall not eat of every ‘Tree’ of The Garden?
There we have it, or should I say there we have their gross deception, and how did I come to the conclusion that it is a gross deception? With GREAT difficulty, I can tell you that, for I have been working on this topic for several days solid, and without let up, because each and every way I turned I was stone walled when trying to make sense of the whole idea that this Serpent Creature was formed from the ground a physical living breathing creature, and yet at the same time supposed to be a spiritual creature with the ability to reason, walk upright and talk, that is, the Devil, and as we read in Revelation:
Revelation 20:1-2 (MCV) And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having The Key of The Bottomless Pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on The Dragon, that Old Serpent, which is The Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
However, this past several days has not been wasted, for I have learned one or two other things, along the way, as you do, once you start Biblical word searches and studies. So the first thing I learned was that the word ‘Satan’ can nowhere be found in the Hebrew Masoretic Texts of the Old Testament. Each and every time it’s found in the English translations it has been mistranslated from the word ‘Adversary’, so Adversary is the word that should be written there, not Satan. I now believe there’s question mark over this word ‘Satan’ too, but that’s a subject for another day.
Moving on, I was next confronted in my searches online, by numerous sites ranting and raving about a pre-Adamic beast species, allegedly Negroids, that is, based on the erroneous ideas that: 1) the beasts of the field were two legged humanoid upright creatures, half hu-man and half animal, and not natural quadruped animals, and 2) that Genesis chapter 1 was a first creation, and Genesis chapter 2, with Adam and Eve, as a second creation – all 100% bogus, I might add. How do I know it’s bogus? Easy, and I’ll post just two verses here in order to prove my point:
Genesis 1:27 (MCV) So The Yahavah Yah (The Elohim) created man (Hebrew ‘aw-dawm’ – Adam) in Their own image, in the image of Yah created He him; male and female created He them.
Genesis 2:7 (MCV) And The Yahavah Yah formed man (Hebrew ‘aw-dawm’ – Adam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath (the spirit) of life; and man became a living soul – a living creature.
So were there two Adams and two Eves? Furthermore, if Eve was the mother of ALL living, that is mankind and hu-mankind, what progeny did these other Adam’s and Eve’s produce? (See link No. 1 below)
Genesis 3:20 (MCV) And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living (Mankind and hu-mankind).
The next problem I had was that of understanding how a brute beast of the field could scheme, talk to and seduce (beguile) a woman (see link No. 2 below). Some say that The Adversary entered or possessed a serpent creature thereby enabling it to talk and to carry out The Adversary’s dastardly deed, but that would mean The Adversary had not actually done it, and the beast was just a proxy. And let’s be clear, for The Adversary wanted his genes and DNA impregnated into Eve, not those of some dumb beast. So that rules out the demonic possession nonsense.
I then had the issue of The Yahavah Yah declaring His creation as good and very good, so how could it be declared as such if there was an evil beast of the field, as a part of that very same creation, roaming around like a roaring lion looking for innocent victims to devour?
Genesis 1:18 (MCV) And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Yah saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:31 (MCV) And Yah saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
On top of this I also had this verse in the mix:
Revelation 13:8 (MCV) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (The Adversary), whose names are not written in The Book of Life of THE LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.
OK, so let me explain. If Yashua Messiah was The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, that meant that sin and evil HAD TO enter into the world or into the creation in order for this prophetic statement of Yashua Messiah’s to be true, and to come true. So when did evil and sin enter into the world or the creation? Answer: as soon as The Serpent Creature entered The Garden and seduced Eve = The Original Sin.
However, notice this important point. The Garden event didn’t occur until AFTER the creation was finished, and The Spiritual Serpent Creature had been made before the creation, so was not a part of it.
So, at this point, I began getting suspicious, and having already proven that Genesis 4:1 is a corrupted spurious verse (see link No. 3 below), why not Genesis 3:1 as well. OK, I am fairly sure that this is just a coincidence, but you never know.
Today, (17th November 2022) I came across a web page that proposed the idea that the heavenly Four Beasts (Living Creatures) of Revelation 4 had once been Five Beasts (Living Creatures) with The Adversary being the fifth, as one with the head of a Serpent, but who left his first estate in order to play around being a hu-man, as did the so-called ‘sons’ of Yah in Genesis 6.
Now this made sense to me, as he would not have been a part of the physical creation, so thereby not tarnishing it by being a part of it, and leaving the creation clear to be classified as good and very good by The Yahavah Yah. Let’s face it, as a heavenly beast he would have been a usurper from outside and not a part of the physical creation.
This now left me with the task of rewording the verse, so that it made sense and here it is:
Genesis 3:1 (MCV) Now The Serpent Creature was more devious, cunning and crafty than any Beast of Heaven which The Yahavah Yah (The Elohim) HAD MADE. And he said unto the woman (Eve), Yea, hath Yah said, Ye shall not eat of every ‘Tree’ of The Garden?
Another thing that didn’t sit right with me was the use of the two words ‘HAD MADE’ when referring to a ‘beast of the field’, when it should have read ‘had been formed from the ground’. ‘HAD MADE’ sounded a far more appropriate term in reference to the making of angels, when beasts of the earth were formed from the ground.
So there you have it, that Old Serpent was ALWAYS a spirit being and MADE crafty, devious and cunning by The Yahavah Yah, hence he left his first estate in order to pursue his evil career, but with the added ability to become physical and seduce Eve.
If any of you has a problem with the idea of The Yahavah Yah creating things evil, then Scripture will bear me out (see link No. 4 below):
Proverbs 16:4 (MCV) The Yahavah hath made all things for Himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
In Yashua Messiah’s name
1. Hu; Hu-mans; Cainites; Canaanites; The Serpent Seed:
2. Did Eve Have Sex With The Devil or Did She Just Eat Some Fruit?:
3. Genesis 4:1 Did EVE Really Say: “I have Gotten a MAN From The Lord?”:
4. Isaiah 45:7 (MCV) I Make Peace, AND CREATE EVIL: I The Eternal Do All These Things!:
A very interesting article, indeed. Once again you enable God’s Word to answer a worldly question created from an unworldly or unnatural interpretation that has been perpetrated throughout the ages.
Reading this article reminded me that nothing in this world is perfect. Everything has been tainted and nothing can be taken at face value without the discerning help of God’s Holy Spirit. It also shed more light on the “original sin” committed in the Garden between Eve and a talking snake who convinced her to eat some forbidden fruit.
And in the process of your research to discover an absence of the word ‘Satan’ in the original Hebrew Masoretic Texts reminding me of another one of your articles which revealed the name Lucifer showing up only once in the King James Bible yet being absent from the scripture it was translated from.
What an adventure! I truly feel like a child of God when reading His Word. Thank you for bringing new life into that adventure. God bless you, brother!
Hi Charlie, As always, thanks for your encouraging words. Glad you found the article interesting.
I will edit it later by adding the relevant verses from Revelation 4 on the Four Beasts (Four Living Creatures). I should have included them.
