    To answer you - if I understood you properly, that is...

    What I "see" is that the emphasis goes - from a focus on between the woman and thee, to a focus on between thy seed and her seed.

    The rest of the narrative (the rest of Scripture) is focused on whom - on thy seed, and her seed.

    And unfortunately, it was her decided on spiritual outlook or "mind" or focus that helped bring about that mess to begin with.

    Genesis 3:6 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 the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

    She unwittingly made a bad choice - from an unsound outlook the serpent beguiled her into looking at things from.

    2 Corinthians 11:3 But 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.

    1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

    She unwittingly allowed her mind or spiritual outlook to be corrupted by that "father of lies."

    She "listened" to the wrong "voice."

    Obviously, Cain did likewise.

    Making him the seed "in spirit" of...

    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.

    This outlook issue is a constant in Scripture.

    Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    In conrast to...

    2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    In contrast to...

    2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

    And so on.

    Thank God then, for Romans 5:6-8.
    Well, Cain was a direct descendant of Eve just as Abel was.

    But if "seed" is to represent the mindset and not physical descendants, then the "seed" of the woman are those with her mindset instead of her physical descendants.
    And the serpent's "seed" would be those with his mindset instead of his physical descendants.
    The only two in the verse that their mindset could come from are the woman and the serpent as it is their "seed" (mindset).
    No one else's "seed" (mindset) is in the verse.

    So which mindset did Cain have ---- the woman's or the serpents?
    And which mindset did Abel have --- the woman's or the serpents?

    Or let me ask it this way ......
    If Christ is the "seed" of the woman, did He have her mindset?
    Or is Christ said to be of the seed of the woman because He was a physical descendant of the woman?

    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
    They already know monsters exist.
    We tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters can be killed.

    The answer to this question is simple, but it will take some study on your part to understand. This is required to help you with a paradigm shift. Because of this I will just tell you very simply, using just a few scriptures.

    Eve was seduced by the serpent, devil, and the result was Cain.
    1Jn 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother

    Abel, was the son of Adam, but Seth began the linage to Jesus. All during this time frame and to the present day the children of the wicked one has tried to do away with God,s children by killing or taking control of their lives in various ways.

    There are many sites on internet to help in your studies.

    "Eve was seduced by the serpent, devil, and the result was Cain". Words fail me...
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    I tried to keep it simple because most people don't know the bible. They still believe the children's story of eating an apple. If you would like to add to it, please do!

    Well, Cain was a direct descendant of Eve just as Abel was.

    But if "seed" is to represent the mindset and not physical descendants, then the "seed" of the woman are those with her mindset instead of her physical descendants.
    And the serpent's "seed" would be those with his mindset instead of his physical descendants.

    No one else's "seed" (mindset) is in the verse.

    So which mindset did Cain have ---- the woman's or the serpents?
    And which mindset did Abel have --- the woman's or the serpents?

    Or let me ask it this way ......
    If Christ is the "seed" of the woman, did He have her mindset?
    Or is Christ said to be of the seed of the woman because He was a physical descendant of the woman?
    Cain clearly TOOK ON an OUTLOOK the serpent would have approved.

    In contrast, Able CHOSE TO walk in its opposite.

    I am referring to the particular spiritual OUTLOOK the one seed of Adam and Eve would CHOOSE to subscribe to, in contrast to what another of Adam and Eve's seed would.

    Case in point, when the Lord told some that they were of their father, the Devil, He was referring to their having turned from the God of their fathers, Abraham, Jacob, and Isaac, to abiding in the lies of the father of lies.

    Elsewhere He relates He is aware that Abraham is their father.

    But the actual issue is one of each person's CHOSEN outlook and behaviour based on said OUTLOOK.

    John 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

    8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

    8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

    The issue is the spiritual outlook, or frame of reference they have allowed themselves to take on and walk in.

    Which is also the case with the Believer...

    Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing OF YOUR MIND, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then WITH THE MIND I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

    The issue is one of the particular mind or outlook the individual takes on and goes by.

    Both in the lost, and in the saved.

    Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, THE SPIRIT that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of THE MIND; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

    Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    The heart there refers to believing a thing from the very core (or heart) of one's mind.

    Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do MIND the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

    Romans 8:6 For TO BE carnally MINDED is death; but TO BE spiritually MINDED is life and peace.

    Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

    That right there refers to the very core of one's mind, or OUTLOOK...

    Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

    Thst is referring to the mind or OUTLOOK of the New Man - "which is renewed IN KNOWLEDGE after the image of him that created him" Col. 3:10.

    The issue is the particular mind or outlook one takes on - as in "a SPIRIT of disobedience..."


    Philippians 1:27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one SPIRIT, with one MIND striving together for the faith of the gospel;

    The issue is one's mind or spirit man's outlook.

    Cain chose an evil outlook, Able did not.

    Its kind of like how we are said to be the children of Abraham - we are not actually his seed, rather, we are viewed by God as being of Abraham's same, decided on, spiritual outlook.

    Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 4:22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 4:23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; 4:24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

    Christ's DECIDED ON mind, spirit, or outlook?

    Luke 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

    Perfect example for the Believer regarding a right, desired outlook to seek to go by...

    Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    Regardless of Dispensational Distinctions, 1 Cor. 1:2.

    Romans 5:6-8.

    That is absolute nonsense.

    Cain was seduced by his own lust (desires).

    James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    It is giving into that or not that determines who one ends up the child of, in outlook.

    The Lord rightly JUDGED his enemies within Israel as being of their father the Devil, even as He noted His being well aware of the fact that they were the children of Abraham.

    John 8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

    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. 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    Of course they were of God, for they were Israelites.

    But they had turned from Him.

    The distinction is one of the particular outlook they had CHOSEN TO look at things from, and walk in.

    Deuteronomy 4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;

    Ending themselves up no better than the Gentiles God had long turned from when they CHOSE TO turn from Him...

    Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

    The equally DECIDED outlook as an escape from that one being...

    1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

    Because Romans 5:6-8 is for "ALL men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" 1 Tim. 2:4.

    Hey DP, hope you're in the best of health!

    And, I've already answered that - more than once, lol

    The enmity would be and has been between the spirit of Christ and the spirit of anti-Christ.

    In other words, between those who would choose having a heart for God, and those who would choose not to.

    In this, each individual would either be a type of Christ or of Anti-Christ - as to their chosen outlook for, or against God.

    Though, I'd not be surprised if that does not pass muster with whatever it is you once more think you alone have sorted out, lol.

    Rom. 5:6-8.

    Something wrong here, there were no good tares in the parable. You've gotten off somehow...

    If there is no doubt as to the meaning of a verse, it is a first. We have yet to achieve the unity of Eph 4: [ 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up] 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Just hasn't happened within the body yet...

    Do you think that the new understanding of HIS revelation John tells us about as found in
    the small bible, Rev 10:10 So I took the small scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it; and it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned bitter.… that at first he thought solved every problem, (every disunity?), but the implications of that unity were not so appealing in light of the call to be separate from the tares....a dreadful unity?
    I Champion GODís holiness:
    - GOD did not need evil so did not create evil for any reason.
    - All evil is creature-created.

    I Champion Our Free will:
    - All spirits created in HIS image had an equal ability and opportunity to choose either heaven or hell by their free will.

    Who do you say THY SEED MEANS ??

    Who do you say HER SEED , MEANS ??

    It seems like he is saying that "thy seed" are the ones that turn from GOD, and "her seed" are those that don't turn from GOD.
    I'm not sure exactly how he can equate 'those that don't turn from GOD' to her seed.

    One thing for sure is that if "seed" is referring to physical descendants then Eve is the mother of all men (mankind).
    So if all men are her seed, then the seed of the serpent must be someone other than mankind.
    I believe that is the view of iamaberean ----- that Cain was fathered by Satan the serpent and Abel & Seth were fathered by Adam.
    The problem I see with that view is that it makes the distinction between Satan's children (seed) and Adam's children (seed) instead of the distinction between Satan's seed and Eve's seed as scripture says (both Cain and Abel are the physical descendants of the woman, so there is no distinction between them per physical seed of the woman).

    Another interesting point to consider is whether the two seeds (of the serpent, and of the woman) are just representative of conflict in all ages between the faithful and the unfaithful or if it is referring to two specific entities that will battle --- one that strikes the heel and one that strikes the head.
    It might even be beneficial to see how those idioms are used throughout scripture - attacking the head and attacking the heel.
    Start by using a concordance to view all the verses that use the word "heel" (there's not that many), and it may provide some insight.

    Interesting topic to say the least, and there are many varying views about it.

    They already know monsters exist.

    True, an interesting topic.

    In my post to I Am A Berean, I made it obvious I do not hold his view.

    For the PHYSICAL seed of the woman (actually, Adam and Eve) is all mankind.

    Genesis 5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

    But what happened in Genesis three was a spiritual issue.

    Doesn't matter if it was a physical apple, or a plum, or a pear, or what have you, for example - for the actual issue was a spiritual matter.

    Of either a heart attitude towards, or away from God.

    Of "Yea, hath God said?"

    The father of lies, versus the God of Truth.

    That I know of, Satan has no PHYSICAL offspring.

    The reference to his seed is spiritual offspring.

    People like these characters...

    2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Notice they brought that on themselves.

    Elsewhere Paul describes such as "deceiving and being deceived."

    A chosen spirit, or heart attitude of rebellion towards God.

    As in...

    Ecclesiastes 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

    Meaning, give a man an inch, and if he is not careful, he'll end himself - by his decisions - at having taken one heck of a mile in the wrong direction.

    For...

    Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth BEFORE destruction, and an haughty spirit BEFORE a fall.

    Thus, the need to...

    Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    This is ever the issue in Scripture - which spiritual seed each individual will choose to become identified with by his or her heart attitude.

    Galatians 6:3 For if a man THINK himself to be something, when he is nothing, HE deceiveth HIMSELF.

    6:7 BE NOT deceived; God is not mocked: for WHATSOEVER A MAN soweth, that shall he also reap. 6:8 For he that soweth TO HIS FLESH shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    Thank God then, for Romans 5:6-8!

    I don't either, as far as Satan being the literal physical father of Cain.
    That view claims that Satan seduced Eve into having sex with him and Cain was the result, while Abel was conceived through Adam having sex with Eve.
    I think there are several flaws in that.
    Cain would have been a hybrid (for lack of a better term), akin to the Genesis 6 story of celestial beings (angels) and human women producing offspring in Noah's time.
    But I don't think that happened between Satan & Eve because all the celestial beings that had sex with women were locked away in the pit, so Satan was not one that did that ...... yet.
    But as scripture says, the last days will be as it was in the days of Noah.
    This viewpoint (of Satan having a literal seed in the future) is one view that I do not trash right off the bat
    Iv'e seen some fairly good arguments for that view.
    Satan who tries to mimic the Godhead will have a seed (son) born from a human woman, mimicking GOD's Son born of a human woman.
    And this son is called his (Satan's) image that is to be worshiped (we refer to that being as the future anti-christ) and will direct others to his father, again mimicking GOD's Son who is also called HIS image and was to be worshiped and directed others to His Father.
    Some with this veiwpoint even suggest that the woman Satan has a child with will be a Jewish woman that he comes to and deceives as an angel of light.
    And some go further with that scenario and say this woman will also be of the tribe of Judah.

    Interesting topic indeed!
    And it can go in several different directions.
    Looking forward to exploring all the viewpoints.

    Maybe satan's seed is the evil nations. Unbelievers?

    Micah 7:16-17 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.
