The Beast of Revelations 13/The seed of the serpent

Now that I have explained the seed of the woman in my previous video and my previous writings I will now explain the seed of the serpent and how it relates to the end times.   As I stated previously, that the saga of salvation involves two seeds, the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent.

Gen 3:15 (KJV)  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. 

Genesis 3:15

New International Version (NIV)

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

It is important to understand the Bible is a colorful book.   Because of the inadequacy of human language, the creator uses a variety of literary devices through the prophets in order to give insight into things that can not necessarily be understood through strictly literal terms,  for these things are beyond the natural mind.   Therefore he uses metaphors, idioms, parables, shadows or representations to give us insight that we might glimpse into that we would not otherwise be able to understand.

Such is the case with the serpent.   The serpent though a natural creature of the earth is a representation of a spiritual creature from heaven.  This spiritual creature is Satan (the devil).

Rev_12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:

Rev_20:2  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil,

So we know from scripture that the serpent is a representation of Satan the dragon.   Now we can examine who or what is the seed of the serpent (devil).

Scripture reveals that after the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, because of their fallen nature, the kingdoms that issued forth became subject to Satan .   These kingdoms sought not God, but were at enmity with him and at war with God.    All were taken captive by these kingdoms and followed the ways of the world.   The elect, those who hearts yearned for God were captives of these nations and Satan.   They needed a deliverer a savior.   The savior is Jesus (Yeshua) the Christ (Messiah).   We know that the nations were given to Satan, for he offered them to Christ.

Luk 4:5 (KJV) And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

Luk 4:6  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

Scripture reveals that there were four major powers that ruled the nations and who were the direct adversary of Israel and Israel was the representation of the Christ who was to come.  These powers (empires) were the Babylonians, The Medes and Persians, The Greeks, and The Romans.  They were known in scripture as beasts.  We start our count of the powers (empires) after the time Israel settled in Canaan.   This is why the Egyptian empire is not counted among the powers.    This is the pattern revealed in scripture:

Dan 7:2  Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

Dan 7:3  And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

Now the vision was explained to Daniel.

Dan 7:16  I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

Dan 7:17  These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

Dan 7:18  But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

The fulfillment of Daniel 7:18 is through Christ.   The saints possess the kingdom through Christ.  In order for Christ and the saints to possess the kingdom, the beast(s) must be overcome.  These four empires subdued Israel because of their sin and are the adversaries of Israel.   They are also the adversaries of Christ.   There was a great war in which the beast(s) fought Christ and were overcome by him and made his subjects and the subjects of all believers.   However, at that time, this war did not occur in the natural realm but in the spiritual realm.  This is why so many do not perceive that the kingdom of Heaven is present.

In Daniel the beast is identified as four distinct entities which are the Lion, the Bear, The Leopard, and The Beast with Iron Teeth.  In the book of Revelations the beast is identified as a collective that is a single entity and is said to have the mouth of a lion, the feet of a bear, the body of a leopard, and seven heads (Seven hills and Seven Roman Caesars of Julian descent).   Many believe the beast in Revelations is a power coming in the future.   But if you compare scripture you can see, these are the same beast(s) of Daniel now being represented as a single entity in the book of Revelation.   This entity is who Christ did battle with when he came to the earth.    He overcame the beast by his blood on the cross.   The Jews expected victory by natural means with weapons of war and so rejected him.  This is what was promised by the prophet:

Zec_4:6  Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

If you understand that the seven heads of the beast of Revelations 13 is Rome you will understand that it was the Romans who put Christ on the cross.  They did not know that he would rise from the dead and establish a kingdom that at the last day all will be judged thereby making them his subjects.  Seeing that the Rome is the head of the beast of Revelations 13, this is the head that is crushed or bruised and brought into subjection thus fulfilling Genesis 3:15.   The dragon who is the serpent gave the beast its power.   The beast is therefore the seed or offspring of the serpent.

Rev 13:1  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev 13:2  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Genesis 3:15 is fulfilled in this manner.    The cross is the heel of Christ, and Rome is the head of the serpent.  Rome bruised Christ heel by putting him on the Cross and he crushed Rome’s head by his resurrection making him the final authority.

Gen 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.
