The Serpent seed, two-seedline, or dual seed doctrine is a belief that Eve had sexual relations with Satan (The Serpent) in the Garden of Eden, resulting in the birth of Cain – Satan’s own son. Those who believe this teaching see it as the common thread that binds together the Holy Bible from beginning to end. Without this knowledge, they believe it would be difficult for one to properly understand history, current events, prophecy, or the true mystery of the battle taking place between good and evil.
“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.”
“He that soweth the good seed (sperma) is the Son of man: The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil…”

Is The Serpent Seed Doctrine Biblical?
Many religionists would have you believe that the “Serpent seed” teaching is heresy. For whenever they hear someone teach it they screech out at the top of their lungs, “False Teacher, False Teacher!” But you know, it isn’t really important how they feel or what they say about it. Because religionists are rarely ever right when it comes to finding the truth. They’re usually too busy trying to make themselves feel or appear holy, and are thus blinded from the truth (Matt 15:14).
Others reject it simply because they are too entrenched in the traditions of men or the doctrine of some church denomination (Matt 15:9, Mark 4:12). Thus the blinders cover their eyes as well.
You see those who denounce the Serpent seed teaching as heresy, not only deny the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ, but they also miss out on the first prophecy of the entire Bible. And if you can’t get the first prophecy of the Bible right, how in the world are you going to be able to understand any prophecies of the Bible?
You can’t. At least not with much understanding.
For if one cannot understand the beginning, they’ll never be able to understand the end.
Genesis 3:15 – The first prophecy
There are all kinds of conspiracy theories floating around the Internet, many of which are purely bogus, and some just partly true about who controls the kingdoms of the world behind the scene leading us into a New World Order.
But instead of being a paranoid scizaphrenic blaming one group and then another, why not find out who’s really conspiring against us by listening to the Word of God. That’s much better than listening to nutcases isn’t it?
And God didn’t make it that hard for us. He gave us the answer to this grand conspiracy all the way back in the beginning, in the first prophecy of the entire Bible.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, “Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
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 3:14-15
What does this mean? Is this referring to a literal “snake”, or what?
The Serpent in the Garden of Eden
Well first off, in order to get anywhere with this prophecy, we must understand that the “serpent” is just another name for Satan. Oh I know this is really hard for the religionists to comprehend, but even a 3 year old would have a hard time not understanding these verses.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan… –Revelation 12:9
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, -Revelation 20:2
Not too hard, huh?
The Dragon, Devil, and Serpent are all the same person. They’re Satan.
And those aren’t the only names he goes by, he has many others as well. But back to the serpent, why is Satan called the serpent?
If you look up the word in Genesis 3:15 translated as “serpent” in a Strong’s Concordance, you’ll find that it is Hebrew word #5175 nachash meaning the “shining one” or “glistening one”. And it stems from word #5172 which means, “to hiss like a serpent” and can be used figuratively as the “whisperings of a soothsayer.”
(See Num 21:6-9, 2 Cor 11:3, 2 Cor 11:14, Eze 28:13-16)
Ah, this is starting to make more sense. Of course, God calls Satan “the Serpent” because of his shining supernatural appearance, as well as his cunning and elusive ability to deceive others.

Here is a little bit of what he had to say concerning the Serpent.
In Genesis 3 we have neither allegory, myth, legend, nor fable, but literal historical facts set forth, and emphasized by the use of certain Figures of speech (see Ap.6)…
For the figurative language of verses 14 and 15 no one would have thought of
referring the third chapter of Genesis to a snake: no more than he does when reading the third chapter from the end of Revelation (ch.20.2). Indeed, the explanation added there, that the “old serpent” is the Devil and Satan, would immediately lead one to connect the word “old” with the earlier and former mention of the serpent in Gen.3: and the fact that it was Satan himself who tempted “the second man”, “the last Adam”, would force the conclusion that no other than the personal Satan could have been the tempter of “the first man, Adam”…
Have we not, in this, clear intimation that it was not a snake, but a glorious shining being, apparently an angel, to whom Eve paid such great deference, acknowledging him as one seemed to possess superior knowledge, and who was evidently a being of a superior (not of an inferior) order?…
We cannot conceive Eve as holding converse with a snake, but we can understand her being fascinated by one, apparently “and angel of light” (i.e. a glorious angel), possessing superior and supernatural knowledge…
It is wonderful how a snake could ever be supposed to speak without the organs of speech, or that Satan should be supposed able to accomplish so great a miracle.
It only shows the power of tradition, which has, from the infancy of each one of us, put before our eyes and written on our minds the picture of a “snake” and an “apple”: the former based on a wrong interpretation, and the later being pure invention, about which there is not one word said in Holy Scripture.
Never was Satan’s wisdom so craftily used as when he secured universal acceptance of this traditional belief:…
This is his object in perpetuating the traditions of the “snake” and the “apple”, because it ministers to the acceptance of his lie, the hiding of God’s truth, the support of tradition, the jeers of the infidel, the opposition of the critics, and the stumbling of the weak in faith. (From Ap.19 of the Companion Bible)
The “Seed” of the Serpent
I think we’ve sufficiently established that it wasn’t a literal snake that tempted Eve in the Garden. But what is this “seed” of the serpent?
What is this all about?
Well, like always, when trying to find the meaning of a something we should first look it up in our Strong’s Concordance and see what it says.
There we find that it is Hebrew word #2232 zera that was translated as seed in Genesis 3:15. And in this context it means “offspring” or “children”. In fact, we’ll take a look at it further down, but the Greek equivalent of this word used by Christ in reference to the Serpent’s “Seed” is word #4687 sperma. And yes if you’re wondering, it does indeed mean “male sperm”.
Can there now be any doubt as to what this “seed” is?
It’s obvious that the Serpent’s “seed” represents Satan’s “literal” descendants who live on earth until the prophecy in Genesis 3:15 is complete – i.e. when the head of the Serpent is crushed. They were planted on earth via Satan’s “sperm”.
Cain was Satan’s son.
And his descendants today are called “Kenites”.
This is the great mystery hidden from most people’s eyes.
“THE SEED OF THE SERPENT. We wish to bring before Christians an enormous problem, well known to the sceptic and philosopher, but of which they are little cognizant, known as the great secret of secrets…We allude to the Secret of the Mysteries. Chaldea, Egypt, Greece, the Gnostics, the Rosicrucians, and the Freemasons show us an uninterrupted chain of men holding tenaciously a secret so profound that they have never divulged it. We claim to expose it.”
-p.vii, The Computation of 666 (Published in 1891)
You see the “fruit” Eve partook of wasn’t a big red juicy apple like the religionists try and tell us. Eve was sexually seduced by Satan. And the result of that was her bearing the wicked fruit of the Devil in her womb (2 Cor 11:2-3).
We’re not going to go into the details here, but you can find out more by reading the article “Sex Affair In The Garden of Eden”.

Serpent seed teaching in the New Testament
I know there may be some reading this article thinking that what I’ve pointed so far is sort of a stretch. And if I didn’t see witnesses of the serpent seed teaching in the New Testament by our Lord Jesus Christ, or by any of His apostles, I might be skeptical as well.
But the fact is. Our Lord did teach the “Serpent seed doctrine”. So did the apostles. I’ve called it the “Serpent seed doctrine” here in this article simply because that’s what most people call it. But it’s actually incorrect to call it that because it is simply part of the doctrine or teachings of Jesus Christ.
Children of the Wicked One
The most prominent and revealing place where Christ taught about the “Serpent seed” is in a parable titled The Parable of the Tares in Matthew 13. And at the end of that parable Jesus explains that the “tares” were actually Satan’s literal children sown into the earth via Satan’s seed or sperma.
Here’s how He put it:
Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, “Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.”
He answered and said unto them, “He that soweth the good seed (sperma) is the Son of man: The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
The enemy that sowed them is the devil… -Matthew 13:36-38
Pretty simple huh?
Oh I know the religionists say that Jesus was referring to “spiritual” children of Satan rather than literal. But you know that wouldn’t be a mystery hidden from the foundation of the world, like Christ told his disciples he was revealing to them (Matt 13:35).
Everyone knew that there were bad people on earth!
Nonsense, Christ would not waste his time giving a whole parable just to tell people what they already knew.
Christ was referring to Satan’s literal descendants and not merely followers of Satan.
In fact, Jesus even pointed out to us these “Serpent seed” people in a couple places. For at the time Christ walked the earth the sons of Cain had embedded themselves in and among God’s people, and even held high positions of leadership. One time when confronting a group of Scribes and Pharisees, our Lord exposed them for who they were and for all of the crimes and murders they had committed against God’s people, ever since the time that their father Cain killed Abel.
Here is a snippet of that conversation.
“Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
Ye serpents, ye generation (offspring) of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” –Matthew 23:31-33
And in another conversation Christ really laid it on them. He said,
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” –John 8:44
That’s it. If you truly want to understand the battle between good and evil, Christ just told us that there are TWO SEEDLINES. A good seed, and an evil seed, continually at war with each other just like Genesis 3:15 said they would be.
Apostles taught the “Serpent seed”
If Christ’s teachings about the “Serpent seed” are not enough for the skeptic, let’s point out some places where the apostles taught about it as well.
John the Baptist,
When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, “O generation of vipers (offspring of the serpent), who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” –Matthew 3:7
The apostle Paul confirmed the “Serpent seed” teaching when he said,
“I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled (sexually seduced) Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” –II Corinthians 11:3
The apostle John also confirmed the “Serpent seed” teaching when he said,
“Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.” -1 John 3:12
Need we go any further?
Since Genesis 3:15 declares that Jesus Christ (The Woman’s Seed) was to be born through a specific family line, then the Antichrist (The Serpent’s Seed) must also be born through a specific family line if we are to remain consistent in interpretation.
The literal family line of Christ starting from Adam all the way through king David, then through Mary, was carefully documented throughout the entire Bible with genealogies. There is a good reason for this. This is how we know that Jesus was the Christ and that he was the Seed of the Woman foretold of in Genesis 3:15.
So for critics to say that the Serpent Seed is not physical but is some sort of abstract “spiritual” thing, they are disregarding the entire theme of this prophecy, and the theme of the Bible itself. If we used their method of interpretation of Genesis 3:15 we could then say that the Messiah didn’t have to be literally born through the seedline of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah, and David but that he could have just come through any family line of spiritually good people. In fact, this could even lead someone to following a false Christ. A very serious mistake.
That kind of dangerous method of interpretation is something I want no part of. The SIMPLE truth is good enough for me.
Satan has a literal family line existing on earth even to this day.
