THE MORNING STARS (PART #5)
by Pastor Jeromy John Visser
Beloved, the seduction of Eve in Yahweh's garden has been covered and debated by practically every Christian Identity pastor in the movement as this doctrine is either vehemently protected or dismissed by Christian believers. Ironically, when the third chapter of Genesis is read directly in the Hebrew there are no contradictions making the seemingly never-ending barrage of debate lie within man's erroneous translations or inability to see what's plainly written (1a). Let's now cover this clear account for ourselves to see what really happened:
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made: and he said to the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 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” (Genesis 3:1-3 Webster).
The first trick of Satan is to cast doubt on the infallibility of Yahweh's commands by asking “Yea, hath God said?” Trees in scripture often represent people or "family trees" (Ezekiel 31:18, Luke 3:9 & Jude 1:12) thus Yahweh commanded that Adam not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil immediately before the creation of Eve (Genesis 2:16-17). This anti-adultery word "touch" spoken by Eve to the serpent is nâga‛ which means “to lie with a woman” (Strong's #H5060) meaning to keep the fruit of her womb uncontaminated (2b).
For more information on the "trees" that inhabited Eden, be sure to read the entire chapter of Ezekiel 31 which describes the serpent as thus; “I [Yahweh] have made him [Satan] fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him” (Ezekiel 31:9). Understanding that God's adversary is “the prince of this world” and is often greatly desired should shed light on why he was able to beguile Eve and later offer Christ “the kingdoms of the world” during his feeble temptations (Matthew 4:8).
“The serpent said to the woman, Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know, that in the day ye eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened: and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise; she took of its fruit, and ate, and gave also to her husband with her, and he ate” (Genesis 3:4-6 Webster).
Satan's method is usually to mix his lies with a lot of truth. For example, stating “in the day ye eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened: and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” was correct while “Ye shall not surely die” was the falsehood. Obviously, Adam and Eve didn't instantly give up the ghost but they both forfeited their once perfect and immortal state when they transgressed the primary commandment of Yahweh. “By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; so death passed upon all men” (Romans 5:12).
Cain and Abel were fraternal twins that brought their offerings to God in the “process of time” ("at the end of days" or their eighteenth year) but Yahweh had no respect for Cain's offering as it wasn't a blood sacrifice (Genesis 4:1-16). The Bible describes Cain as enslaved to the earth because the word tiller means “slave or servant” (Strong's #H5647). Jesus teaches that Satan was the world's first murderer (3c) so either God erred in that the first-born man-child to Adam and Eve was an executioner or the serpent's interaction made him as such.
“The eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked: and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made for themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God amongst the trees of the garden. And Yahweh God called to Adam, and said to him, Where art thou?” (Genesis 3:7-9 Webster).
After “the eyes of both of them were opened” Adam and Eve knew instantly that they were naked and attempted to cover their nudity with aprons (loincloths) made of fig leaves. When they hear the voice of Yahweh in the garden they both feebly attempt to hide themselves from their own transgression and shame. While he was still living, it should be noticed that Cain isn't listed in Adam's genealogy as found in Genesis 5:3; “Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth.”
Seth's name means “replacement” (Strong's #H8352) and scripture states he was begotten in Adam's “own likeness after his image” unlike Cain the murderer (4d). Adam and Eve didn't cover their mouths because they ate a forbidden "apple" (as taught in easy-believism), they both covered their genitalia as these were the objects by which their offenses were committed. After the original sin and judgment of Yahweh, Adam names his wife Eve meaning “the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20) covering both wicked and righteous seedlines.
“He said, I heard thy voice in the garden: and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman, whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate. And Yahweh God said to the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I ate” (Genesis 3:10-13 Webster).
Adam telling God that Eve gave him the "forbidden fruit" is not an attempt to cast blame on the woman like many feminists teach (who shouldn't even be teaching the Word of God in the first place), it's the straightforward Biblical account -- Eve “took of its fruit, and ate, and gave also to her husband with her.” Adam was truthful with his Creator about what had transpired between the three, most likely due to the fact that he knew Yahweh knew what happened anyway. Eve was outright seduced by Satan the serpent (Revelation 12:9 & 20:2).
In Hebrew the word beguiled is nâshâ' which means “to seduce” (Strong's #H5377) and in the Greek it's exapataō which means “to seduce wholly” (Strong's #G1818) like when it's used in this statement by Paul; “I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (II Corinthians 11:3). The Word of Yahweh is straightforward, it's when man attempts to add his own interpretations to it that it becomes muddied and false doctrine is produced.
As mentioned in other works by Covenant People's Ministry (5e), the actions ascribed to Biblical angels cannot be performed by flesh man. Just because angel means "messenger" (Strong's #G32) doesn't mean that they're simple men. In fact, when a Christian weighs all the evidence of the deeds performed by them it becomes rather apparent that anyone who suggests as such is a false prophet with ulterior motives. Many such idiots exist within the movement today and continually push their pro-talmudic agendas, be on guard against them.
“Upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost” (Acts 12:21-23).
These use of worms in Herod's death is interesting tying back to certain "trees" from Eden. As “the fir trees” and “cedars of Lebanon” gave Satan praise his heart was lifted up and chose instead to play God (like Herod). Yahweh's future sentence against him is “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations” (Isaiah 14:8-12)!
Man can either serve God or mammon, never both (Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13). Wicked men that choose to serve man's counterfeit system or laws as opposed to God's can only do the bidding of Satan thus in scripture Pharaoh, Herod, the Assyrian, the king of Babylon (and more) are "types" of antichrist. Beware of those who are absorbed with man's politics or think it can be the answer to God's own curses, there's no answer to the world's woes in man's faulty system and those who serve it willingly are simply pawns of the adversary.
“When Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews” (Act 12:11).
Naturally, Peter's "guardian angel" was the same sent by night to open the prison doors and set him free saying “Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life” (Acts 5:19-20 & 12:7) or better put “Words by which the way unto life is shown.” His angel was seen by others (Acts 12:15), protected Peter and the later apostles throughout the book of Acts and finally sent worms to eat the god-tripping Herod. Once again, Christians can see the importance of scripture when building faith or determining authentic doctrine.
Denominations and new dogma are born every day but according to Jesus only the eternal Word is indisputable Truth (John 17:17), not man's modern theories. Never listen to non-believers about the sanctity of our scriptures, the Bible in their hands is mere confusion and words that they can never grasp. Such is the case with this new "no-devil" doctrine, history and almost every theologian that has existed disprove their weak stances because their core belief shows a desire to be lowercase "gods" themselves, just like Lucifer the fallen one.
Like usual, my intention with this sermon is to glorify Jesus Christ and expose the false prophets amidst us today. They often attack the truthful under the guise of "Christian civility" meaning that if you don't accept their jewish belief that Satan is your own flesh (yeẓer ha-ra) than you're being unnecessarily uncivil. To dismiss the reality of angels is to write off the Bible as it's plainly written. The scripture means exactly what it says and has the ability to save God's Israel people during every era, with or without man's long-winded explanations.
If the scripture says there's demons and devils then they are factual. Therefore, the upcoming sixth part of this series will be devoted to Jesus' detailed teachings on angels and His personal dealings with them. A re-examination of the angel that hindered Balaam and his ass from prophesying falsely to the children of Israel will also be included (6f). There are countless examples of supernatural cherubim found in scripture so it's my wish that this series will help to arm Bible-believing Christians against the imposter's ploys. War for Christ! Amen.
(1a) The curse laid against
the heads of all three guilty parties in Genesis 3:15 is considered to be
the Protoevangelium or “the first gospel” because it's the earliest
reference of the coming Messiah in the Old Testament. Like the serpent of
old, many of his false prophets today use the same tactics of casting doubt
on the inerrancy of the scriptures by stating certain words don't really
mean what they plainly say. We must continually keep our eyes on Christ (the
Word incarnate) so as to not sink in the mire of their faulty
interpretations. Also, many "early church fathers" taught about the
seduction of Eve because it's referenced several times throughout the Bible
thus this particular study on angels becomes rather necessary. For more
information on their specific teachings, be sure to read the additional
source notes from the previous four parts of this series on Biblical angels.
The forerunners of Christian Identity all taught seedline doctrine thus
those who don't are simply not CI, they're judeo-Christians.
(2b) Jesus often equated mankind to trees like in this statement; “For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes” (Luke 6:43-44). He also commands His followers to “Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire” (Luke 3:8-9). This is also why “by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:20). On a side note, consider that the Catholics state “Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus” when they pray their Angelic Salutations or "Hail Mary." Trees are symbolic of people and fruit is emblematic of works, both good and bad.
(3c) Christ tells the jews in John 8:44; “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.” Naturally, Cain was the world's first murderer when he took the life of righteous Abel proving that he was not "born of God" (I John 3:9). Furthermore, loving John clarifies the seedline position more clearly when he continues; “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 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” (I John 3:10-12). Cain was born of that wicked one, the literal fallen angel Satan himself.
(4d) In Genesis 3:1-3, Satan called serpent (Revelation 12:9) or 'the enchanter' says to the woman; “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Eve replies “”We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 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.” Interesting of note here is the word "fruit." It stems from the Hebrew word perîy (pronounced per-ee') and according to Strong's Concordance it means “to bear fruit, grow or increase.” However, Brown-Driver-Briggs' Hebrew Definitions explains the word much more specifically with the straight-forward definition of “fruit, offspring, children, progeny (of the womb).” Keep in mind that Satan's number “is the number of a man” (Revelation 13:18) or as a fallen angel is "the perfect man." Seth's name means 'substitute' is listed in Adam's genealogy and not Cain (Genesis 5:3). For further clarity read CPM's Trees and Stars In The Garden of Yahweh (2005).
(5e) Covenant People's Ministry has released numerous teachings dealing with the erroneous interpretations of the modern "no-devil" crowd which has purposely shattered a once-agreed body of Christian believers. Perhaps the most controversial of these is Judaism Has No Devil which proves the enemies of Christ engage in self-worship neither having a Messiah nor adversary much like those who deny Satan or spiritual realm. More information can be obtained by reading the online book Satanel (this title should be available in print form soon), Anointed Cherub That Covereth, Beware of False Prophets, Devices of the Lawless Almanac, Tactics of the Lawless One, That Man of Sin: The Son of Perdition or Wicked For the Day of Evil. Rest assured, CPM will continue to honor Christ our King by exposing the iniquitous tares that interject deceitful leaven into Christian Identity because one can't call themselves "CI" if they aren't aware of the identity of the children of God or the children of Satan (I John 3:10).
(6f) Remember, CPM intends to release a deluxe CD package of The Morning Stars Series. This special four-disc set contains two forty minute sermons per compact disc with all eight extensive sermons in booklet form to study along with at your own convenience. While the audio sermons will naturally be released in mp3 format for internet Godcasting, it's our hope that any sales for this unique package will help generate the additional revenues needed to release Satanel in proper book form. These expanded series of sermons about Biblical angels are loosely based on Trees and Stars In The Garden of Yahweh, Stars and Trees In The Garden of Yahweh and Anointed Cherub That Covereth so be sure to familiarize yourself with those sermons should you desire further study. Eventually, The Morning Stars paperback will be released from Covenant People's Books. To be reminded about the future release of this CD set and book be sure to sign up for the CPM Newsletter or visit Covenant People's Forums.
