The Two Seeds Heresy
Did the Serpent have sexual relations with Eve in Eden?
Are the "Children of the Devil" physical descendants of Cain?
Are they those who we know of as "Jews" today?
|"Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles are they?" (Matthew 7:15-16) Sometimes Jesus calls these false teachers "wolves." Paul said that these men are both "deceived" and are "deceivers themselves." Heresy, which is designed to sever brethren from Christ comes from the work of wolves among the flock. Jesus made a distinction between "hirelings" and true "shepherds" by saying that hirelings flee from the flock and allow the wolf to come in while shepherds protect the flock even to the point of laying down their lives for them.(John 10) Being deceived, wolves don't know they are wolves.
When we examine the teaching of a person we must discern if they are offering "grapes" or "figs" which nourish the body, or "thorns" and "thistles" which harm the body. "You will know them by their fruits" Jesus said. In my experience with wolves I have noticed that their personal lives always seem to be in disarray. Their lives are often littered with broken marriages, strained relationships and personal bondages to one sin or another which they cannot seem to be delivered from. Yet even in all of this, they always seem to have a desire to set themselves as teachers of others. This is exactly why the Apostle Paul gave such strict guidelines for the qualifications of one who would be entrusted with overseeing the heritage of God. He knew that if one could not find a history of good fruit in a man's personal life, you would not find it in his spiritual life either. Peter said, shepherds are not to "lord it over the flock" but to "serve as examples to the flock." This is why the strict qualifications and why Jesus said you will know them by their fruits. Anyone can talk, the real test of a person is found in his walk. God sets godly examples in His church so that His children can follow their faith and conduct.
The Apostle Paul was a champion in the cause of the truth and his rich legacy will be remembered for all eternity as an example of a faithful and loving shepherd. Much of the content of his epistles are devoted to combating false doctrines and false teachers whom he often exposed by name. He instructed the church at Ephesus to -"not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness but instead expose them." (Chpt.5:11) In Acts 20 he warned the Ephesian Elders that after his departure ravenous wolves would come in to devour the flock. And he even prophesied that some among themselves would arise and begin to teach perverse things and draw away some of the brethren from Christ. This was his parting admonition to those Elders -"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the holy spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." (Acts 20:28)
While on his mission to Macedonia and still concerned with the brethren at Ephesus, this devoted Apostle wrote young Timothy and urged him to remain at Ephesus to repute false teachers who were introducing "strange doctrines." One of these doctrines involved paying attention to genealogies, notice -"Instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere spectulation rather than the administration of God which is by faith. But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. for some men, straying from these things have turned aside to fruitless discussion." (1 Timothy 1:3-6) Later in the Chapter the Apostle named Hymenaeus and Alexander whom he says did not "keep the faith" nor a "good conscience" but "suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith." Paul then tells Timothy that because they rejected the faith he "handed them over to Satan." (Verses 19-20) Apparently, Timothy was not successful in silencing these wicked men from spreading their "leaven". About 30 years later Jesus wrote the church in Ephesus Himself and warned them that they "had lost their first love" and that if they did not return to doing the deeds they had at first, He would remove them from being one of His churches. (Rev.2)
Paying attention to "endless genealogies which give rise to mere spectulation" is exactly what it takes to believe and spread the "Two Seeds" heresy. Attempting to use "genealogy" to follow the seed of Satan through Cain, and to use"spectulation" to come to the conclusion that his descendants today are those who identify themselves as Jews, but are actually the "children of the devil." Being the "children of the devil" means that this race cannot receive salvation and exists only to be destroyed. Receiving this perverse teaching plants the seed of hatred toward a race of people not because of anything they have done, but simply who they are. It was this mentality that allowed the holocaust to take place in Europe during the second World War. Bad men flourished becaused good men turned a blind eye and did nothing.
Villainizing a race of people is nothing new but is one of the tactics of the wolf. Paul had to combat this when he wrote to Titus saying -"For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain. One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans are always liars, EVIL BEASTS, lazy gluttons." this testimony is true. For this reason, reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith, not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men WHO TURN AWAY FROM THE TRUTH." (Titus 1:10-14) Here Paul is exposing a false prophet by using one of his own quotes against him. he wants the Lord's flock to know how this man really thinks. This wolf was teaching that Cretans are "evil" just because they are Cretans. Titus was told to "reprove severely" and return "sound faith" to those who had paid attention to false teachers who had turned away from the truth. Jesus said that where there is hatred there is the spirit of murder (Matt. 5) and wherever this spirit abides there is a desire to do the murderous deeds of the devil. (John 8)
When I think of some of the heresies condemned in Scripture, this one is as evil as it gets. The Galatian heresy was caused by false teachers who insisted that the Gentile converts to Christianity be circumcised and directed to keep the whole Law of Moses. Paul labeled this as a "perverted Gospel" and pronounced a double "curse" on anyone who would teach it.( Gal.1) Paul counseled Timothy that in some cases he should not even engage false teachers directly because the "empty chatter" "will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some." (2 Timothy 2:16-18)
If I was asked to give a ranking order to these three heresies, I would have to say that teaching that a whole race of people are actually the seed of Satan would top my list, followed by the perverted gospel in Galatia and then the teaching that the resurrection had already taken place. I am confident that most of you reading this article would agree with me in that. But, of course, with or without ranking they are all bad enough to cause brethren to fall away from the faith and ultimately perish in the flames of the Lake of Fire.
A Christian who has received heresy is a sheep who has been biten. They are a victim and every effort should be made to restore them from where they have fallen. The person who has the ministry which teaches a heresy such as I mentioned above is not a victim but a heretic, a wolf in sheep's clothing. These are those who are "sold out" to the heresy to the point that it has become their mission, their "ministry." There is one who sows the "good seed" which is the true "Word" of God, and there is one who sows the "bad seed" which is a doctrine of demons and the very word of the devil himself. It is one thing to honestly hold a false teaching but another altogether to spread it to others. A person who does this is a leavening agent in the Body of Christ, and Paul said a "little leaven, leavens the whole lump." (1 Cor. 5) This was Paul's reasoning when he instructed the church in Corinth to cast a practicing fornicator out of the church. The church obeyed the Apostle and the happy results are recorded in his second letter to the church here - that the sinner had repented and was to be welcomed back. Of course he would never had been welcomed back had he not repented of his wicked deeds. Those who practice sin in the congregation are bad enough, but those who actively spread heresy are far worse. They have become a tool of the devil.
The Apostle John warned that if a person goes "too far" off in his theology he will lose both the Father and the Son. He goes on to say that the faithful are not to receive that person in their house or even greet him. "For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who GOES TOO FAR and DOES NOT ABIDE IN THE TEACHING OF CHRIST, does not have God; the one who ABIDES in the TEACHING, he has BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, DO NOT RECEIVE HIM into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds." (2 John vs 7-11) As Paul asked the Corinthians, "What fellowship has light with darkness?"
At the Feast of Tabernacles 2005 I met a man named Jerry Gentry. We instantly hit it off and became friends. I found Jerry to be warm, friendly and charming. After the Feast we continued to keep in touch through emails and in late December he and his family came to visit our congregation here in Russellville, Arkansas. Again, we had great fellowship and we were pleased to meet his wife and two of her sons whom we had not previously met.
Soon after this visit I received an email from Jerry (Jan.2, 2006) with a link to an article at his web site. He asked me to read the article and give him some feedback. The article was entitled the "Two Seeds." Just to be fair, you can read it in its entirety at Jerry's web site www.wildernesschurch.com I was so busy at the time that I did not visit the site or read his article until more than two weeks later. On January 18 I received another email from Jerry containing some questions and critique of one of my recent sermons entitled "The True Israel of God." After receiving this email I took the time to read the Two Seeds article. Not only did I not agree with Jerry's theory I was shocked at what I read. I realized also that through the inspiration of the holy spirit I had touched on the subject a little in that sermon though I had not yet read the article. This man presented his article in a way that caused me to believe that he honestly wanted to hear how I thought it held up under Scripture. But I found that he had done this to others a number of times and had received from them enough Scriptural evidence to refute his theology, yet he remained unchanged. I realized that he really did not want to hear any proof that he might be wrong, -his mind was already set. He knew that most people would reject this teaching but it is his "ministry" and he feels the need to be a fisher of men. It is his "truth" that he must proclaim even if he must do it subtly. He befriended me first before he asked me to read his article.
I made the mistake of asking Mr. Gentry to speak at our Feast in October of 2005, and in December I invited him to speak to our congregation in Russellville, Arkansas. He gave a fine message about the Church being the true Temple of God. I put his message on our web site and did not remove it until I came to know about his two seeds theology. At the time of this writing, Mr. Gentry has one of my sermons and my name listed at two of his web sites even though he now knows I want nothing to do with him or his work. I have asked him to remove my message and my name but he refused. At this point I feel the necessity to make it publicly known that Points of Truth Ministries nor the Crusade Church of God is sympathetic to him or his cause.
This was not my first exposure to this doctrine. I counseled a Pastor from Georgia who was dealing with it in his congregation in 1996. I told him to show those people to the door and tell them they are not welcome in the House of the Lord. Then four years later it raised its ugly head when Fred DeAryan attended our Feast of Tabernacles at Yorktown Bay, near Hot Springs, Arkansas in 2000. I was aware that his "ministry" held very racist views so I did not allow him to speak during the festival. But I walked in on an argument he was having with my friend who is a minister and happened to be a Christian Jew. DeAryan was presenting the two seeds theory in an effort to show that those we consider Jews today are not really Jews but actually the seed of Satan. Being the host of the Feast, I stopped the conversation and forbade DeAryan to distribute any literature on the subject just in case he had that in mind.
After reading the "Two Seeds" article I did some research on Jerry Gentry and also the Church of Israel which he had previously been affiliated with. Again, what I found was shocking to me and the congregation here. We found that Jerry was very racist in his views and favored segregation. In the Joplin Globe (Dec.17, 2000) he was also quoted as believing that Blacks and Asians are primate races. This is similiar to Hitler's view that some races are sub-human.You can read some of his views at www.rickross.com/reference/israel/israel15.html . I have given him every opportunity to deny, clarify or renounce these quotes attributed to him but he has refused to do so.
Before we get into exposing this false doctrine as the heresy it is, I will layout the basic points of the belief. The doctrine of the two seeds is an important teaching in the Christian Identity movement who holds the belief that the White Race are the descendants of Israel and that the gospel message is only for them. And also, those who claim to be Jews today though white, are not true Israelites but actual descendants of the devil.
BASIC POINTS OF THE TWO SEEDS HERESY
The Serpent seduced Eve into having sexual relations with him
Eve was deceived into believing that she was having sexual relations with God
Genesis 6 "proves" that fallen angels can have sexual relations with women
Immediately afterwards Eve had sexual relations with Adam
The result was that Eve became pregnant by the Serpent and Adam
Eve gave birth to Cain who was of the seed of the Serpent
Eve gave birth to Abel who was of the seed of Adam.
They conclude that Cain and Abel were twins
Adam, Eve and Abel were of the White Race
Because Cain was of the Serpent seed he is the father of the "Children of the devil"
The "Children of the devil" are known as "Jews" today
The White descendants of Abel are the true Israelites
Non-White Races are "primate races" which existed before Adam
These groups of "sub-human" people have no soul and do not need salvation
That there is a great "Jewish Conspiracy" to steal true Israel's heritage from them
Since the Gospel is only for "White Israelites" they believe that the "Gentiles" of the New Testament were really members of the lost Tribes of Israel
The Church of God is composed of Whites only - thus the "Christian Identity" movement
There may be some differences among the various groups which embrace the two seed myth but these are the basic beliefs and conclusions which follow. From here we will examine the points in the order that I listed them in.
Did the Serpent seduce Eve into having sexual relations with him?
The following is from the "Two Seeds" by Jerry Gentry - "That first Romeo beguiled her, that is, he stirred her passions and seduced her. She and her husband Adam then covered their nakedness with fig leaves. If it were a forbidden apple or peach or pear or other fruit of that nature that they had eaten, don't you think they would have covered their mouths? Instead, "they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons" (Gen. 3:7). Whatever took place was definitely of a moral, sexual nature, because afterwards they covered up their nakedness."
"In the briefest manner, the Bible tells us the explicit result. Look carefully at verses 1 and 2 of Genesis 4, and you will see that Adam cohabited with Eve after she ate the fruit of the Serpent. The result was a set of twins from two different fathers. Cain was born first and Eve exclaimed: "I have gotten a man from the LORD!" Eve had been so deceived and beguiled by the Serpent, that she actually thought she had cohabited with "the LORD." She then "bare again," or continued in labor, and bore Cain's half brother, Abel, the son of Adam. Two babies, two fathers, one mother."
LASITER COMMENTARY: Let's look at what the Bible actually says and what it does not say. "The Lord commanded the man, saying -'From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL you shall not eat." (Genesis 2:16-17) Notice also what Adam and Eve's sin was -"When the woman saw that the TREE was good for FOOD, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the TREE was desirable to make one wise, SHE TOOK FROM ITS FRUIT and ATE; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate." (Genesis 3:6)
WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS: God forbade the first humans to eat fruit from a Tree - the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Tree was a composite of good and evil. The Bible says that they ate "fruit" of the tree. After eating of its fruit their "eyes were opened" and they became like God in that they knew both good and evil where previously they had only known good. Eve gave also to her husband Adam and he ate. Because he ate of the same fruit are we now to assume that Adam also had sexual relations with the Serpent? We see that Adam had relations with his wife and she conceived Cain AFTER they were put out of the garden -"Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and SHE CONCEIVED and gave birth to Cain..."(Genesis 4:1) This clearly shows that Cain was not only conceived after the Serpent beguiled Eve but that the conception and birth took place after they had been put out of the garden of Eden.
WHAT THE SCRIPTURE DOES NOT SAY: It nowhere says that Eve was seduced by the Serpent. It does not say that they ate of the fruit of the Serpent. God created both the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen. 2:9), nowhere is this tree alluded to as the tree of the Serpent. The Bible does not say that Cain and Abel were "twins." Nowhere does the Scripture imply that Eve thought that she had sexual relations with the Lord. "I have gotten a man from the Lord" is a common saying when one gives birth to a child. The Bible says children are a gift from God. Eve made a similiar statement when Seth was born saying -"God has appointed me another offspring." (Gen.4:25)
ANOTHER POINT TO CONSIDER: If Cain were of the actual seed of the Serpent, being a child of the devil himself, then why did God plead with him to overcome the temptation to murder his brother Abel? Afterall, God had already said that He, Himself would "put enmity between the Serpent and the woman and between his seed and her seed." (Gen. 3:15) The passage goes on the say that "HE" shall bruise the Serpent on the head. Who is "HE?" Who bruised the Serpent's head? Of course, this is referring to Jesus who would ultimately come in the flesh be born of a woman and destroy the works of the devil.
God counseled Cain to "master sin" and assured him that if he did well that he would be accepted. Notice, -"Then the Lord said to Cain, 'Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it." (Genesis 4:6-7) For "will not your countenance be lifted up?" the literal Hebrew reads -"surely you will be accepted." Cain was not "sin" or the embodiment of sin. Sin was outside the door with a desire for him. Cain could have chosen to resist the desire to sin - he could have mastered sin. He chose to commit murder. The Book of Jude speaks of false teachers who had "gone the way of Cain." (vs 11) Cain went the wrong way. God had set before him life and death, blessing and curses, and Cain chose the curse and death. He received the word (temptation) of the devil and BECAME a son of the evil one.
Does Genesis 6 prove that fallen angels can have sexual relations with women?
From the "Two Seeds" by Jerry Gentry - "How could the devil be a literal father, like Adam was a father? He is not even human." True, but did you know that certain angels called "sons of God" once cohabited and reproduced with women? Yes the Bible says "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose" (Gen. 6:2).
"Who are these "sons of God?" We find the answer in Job: "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them" (Job 1:6). Here, "Satan" is listed as one of the angelic "sons of God."
"Back in Genesis 6, is the record of "the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation" (Jude 6).
LASITER COMMENTARY: I am going to make my case against the idea that these "sons of God" were fallen angels, but if they were it would not somehow prove that Satan had sexual relations with Eve. Remember what Jesus said, -"For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like the angels in Heaven." (Matthew 22:30) This seems to indicate that angels do not marry.
There has been much speculation about the meaning of this passage in Genesis Chapter 6.Some teach that fallen angels took on the form of flesh and had sexual relations with women producing a race of giants called the Nephilim. The proponents of this view state oral tradition and the advent of mythology to support the teaching. In this brief article I will use only the text of this passage itself, and will be quoting from the New American Standard Version which is considered the most literal translation in print.
Verses 1 & 2, "Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose."
Commentary: We find there that the "sons of God" took wives from the "daughters of men." The important question here is, who are the "sons of God?" Are they demons, fallen angels taking the form of flesh and actually entering a Marriage Covenant with daughters of men? Would God call evil, fallen spirits "sons of God?" Some say that Satan was one of the "sons of God" referred to in Job 1:6. But the passage says that when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord that Satan "also came among them." Satan came "among them"- "them" referring to the "sons of God." This is not saying that Satan is a son of God but that he appeared "among" the sons of God like a tare might appear among the wheat.
Like faithful men, angels are sometimes called sons of God in Scripture as we see in Job 38:7 but it is not angels being referred to in Verse 2. Notice also that these sons of God "chose" for "themselves" certain "daughters of men."
Verse 3, "Then the Lord said, "My spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."
Commentary: We see here that because the "sons of God" took for themselves the "daughters of men" God limited man's days to 120 years and said "My spirit shall not strive with man forever." Men had lived to be much older prior to this judgment, notice also, the judgment had to do with God's spirit abiding in man. In the previous chapter we find that Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. We must ask the question, "if the sons of God were fallen angels, why was the judgment against "man?"
Romans 8 tells us twice that only those who possess the indwelling of the holy spirit are the "sons of God." Although the holy spirit was poured out on Pentecost in 31AD, there have always been faithful men and women whom God had given His spirit to.
In Psalm 51we find King David praying that God would not take His holy spirit from him. Jesus called Abel righteous. (Matthew 23:35) In Genesis 5 we find that Enoch "walked with God" and God took him. Notice also the time line of the great cloud of witnesses so eloquently spoken of in Hebrews 11, almost all lived prior to the coming of Christ.
Jesus told His disciples "Blessed are those who have not seen yet have believed." I believe He was referring to the faithful who lived before He came as the Savior. These Faithful servants could not look back to Calvary as we can, but had to look forward to the cross and believe that God would someday redeem them from their sins.
Let us consider for a moment that the "sons of God" in Genesis 6:2 were faithful men whom God had given the holy spirit to. Men who were not only born of men but born again of God,- marrying worldly women born only of men. Notice also what began to take place with the descendants of Seth just prior to this time -Then men began to call upon the name of the Lord."(Genesis 4:26) Now let's see how the passage begins to shape up.
The Hebrew word translated as "strive" here literally means "rule in." Some ancient versions read "abide in" or "in his going astray he is flesh." The word "nevertheless" in verse 3 can mean "therefore" in Hebrew as well.
Putting this together let me paraphrase,- When the faithful sons of God,- righteous men possessing the holy spirit, saw that the women of the world were beautiful, they lusted after them, taking them as their wives, thus becoming "unequally yoked" together with unbelievers. (1 Corinthians 7)
They "chose" for "themselves" rather than letting God provide for them. In this they were quenching the spirit within them, which is why God said "My spirit shall not "strive", "rule in" or "abide in" man forever, for "in his going astray he is flesh," therefore I will limit his years on earth to 120. Notice that God is saying that His spirit could not stay in those who lusted after the flesh. This means that there were men who had the holy spirit abiding in them but fell away when they set their eyes and hearts on the flesh, in this case, women who were not born of the spirit.
Verse 4 - 6, "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, . . ., when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart."
Commentary: "Nephilim" here is certainly the "mighty men,"- "men of renown." The Nephilim were a result of the unholy union of the sons of God with the daughters of men. Nephilim is taken from "Napal" meaning "to fall." But who are these who fell? Was it angels who had become demons at Lucifer's rebellion, or was it faithful men who fell away from God by going after fleshly desires?
Notice that God said that He "saw that the wickedness of man was great." That "every intent" of man's heart was evil. And that God was even sorry that He had made man.
Again, it is man whom God holds to blame. And it was to men that God's judgment was pronounced against. The same men who were once called the "sons of God."
What about Jude where it states -"the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation" (Jude 6)? An "estate" and a "habitation" is a place of dwelling. Satan and his fallen angels were confined to this earth as their dwelling place. When God asked Satan what he had been doing, Satan replied "Walking the earth." (Job 1) But Satan and his demons ascended to Heaven in an attempt to overthrow the throne of God but were cast back down. (Rev.12) The earth is the estate and the habitation which they left when they unlawfully ascended to Heaven. Also, the term "son of God" can refer to an angel of God or a man. There is no real Biblical proof that the "sons of God" spoken of in Job 1 are angels. The Bible does not say that the meeting took place in Heaven either. It says that when the sons of God came to present themselves before God that Satan came among them. It could be that the sons of God in Job 1 were faithful men and that Satan was there to accuse them before God. The Bible says that he is the "accuser of the brethren." Zechariah 3 tells of Joshua standing before the Lord with Satan right there accusing him. There is no indication that Joshua was LITERALLY standing at God's Throne, and the presentations of the "sons of God" may not mean that they were LITERALLY standing at God's Throne.
Are the "Children of the devil" who we know as "Jews" today?
From the "Two Seeds". "The amazing revelation concerning "thy seed," or the Serpent's seed, is uncovered clearly in the words of Jesus Christ Himself, who stated to a certain group of Pharisees: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do" (John 8:44). The phrase "Ye are of your father the devil" means offspring in a literal, physical sense. Check the Greek words, if you doubt it."
"Of your father the devil." "Of your father the devil." Here Jesus is talking with some flesh and blood people who are "of your father the devil."
More from the "Two Seeds"."You say, all right, but show me more evidence. OK, the Bible says:
"Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee" (Rev 3:9).
"The synagogue of Satan "which say they are Jews," today is mostly made up of the descendants of Cain."
More from the "Two Seeds". "They do not descend from "her seed," but from "thy seed" of Genesis 3:15. The unlawful, out of kind seed of the Serpent has continued to grow among the wheat of God, all the way down through history. This is the usurer race. This is the merchandising race. This is the race that corrupts music. This is the cheating race that lives by a vile book called the Talmud. This race has inflamed hatred and enmity with "her seed" of Adam's race since that eventful day in the Garden. This race was at various times kicked out en masse from the major nations across Europe."
"Two Seeds. One from God. One from the devil. Wheat and "cheat," the good seed and the tares. Now you know who they are. Now you know the difference."
LASITER COMMENTARY: First let's examine more closely that Scripture in John 8:44 where the article reads -"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do" The point of this reference in the article is to "prove" that some of those who claim to be "Jews" are really the offspring of the serpent. Yet in verse 37 we clearly see that Jesus acknowledges that these same men were Abraham's descendants, Notice, -"I know that you are Abraham's descendants: yet you seek to kill Me, because My Word has no place in you." Here we see that the children of the devil cannot simply be the physical descendants of Cain but can even be Abraham's descendants. They are those who have "no place" for God's "Word" in them. The Two Seeds theology teaches that the White race are Abraham's descendants and is the true Israel of God, and that those who call themselves "Jews" are sired of the serpent and descendants of Cain, Notice again the article -"The phrase "Ye are of your father the devil" means offspring in a literal, physical sense." Yet here, Jesus is saying that Israelites can become the children of the devil if they will not receive God's Word implanted in them.
DOES THE BIBLE TELL US HOW TO RECOGNIZE THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL?: The answer is "Yes." "Little children make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. BY THIS, the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious; ANYONE who does NOT PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS is NOT OF GOD, nor the one who DOES NOT LOVE his brother." (1 John 3:7-10)
Notice what Paul wrote the Ephesians, -"And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (Satan), of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience." (Ephesians 2:1-2) He is saying that before they were converted that the spirit of the prince of the power of the air was working in them, and is even now still at work wherever there are sons of disobedience. Again, they are identified not by genealogy but by their disobedience.
WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS: We will know them by their "works" not their genealogy. Those who practice righteousness are "born of God" and those who practice lawlessness are "children of the devil." I might add that the Jews were more known for preaching the works of the Law than lawlessness. It was judaizing "Christians" who insisted that the Gentile converts be circumcised and directed to keep the whole Law of Moses. (Acts 15:5)
WHAT THE SCRIPTURE DOES NOT SAY: That we will know the children of the devil because of their physical genealogy, or that anyone who calls himself a "Jew" is a child of the devil. The New Testament theology of Jesus does not teach us to hate a race of people because of their physical genealogy. In fact, Jesus even gave the story of the good Samaritan to a Jewish audience, a people who hated the Samaritans.
Notice that one "who does not love" is not of God. Jesus said that we are to even love our enemy. At the end of the Two Seeds article we can clearly see the hatred come out, notice -"This is the usurer race. This is the merchandising race. This is the race that corrupts music. This is the cheating race that lives by a vile book called the Talmud. This race has inflamed hatred and enmity with "her seed" of Adam's race...Now you know who they are. Now you know the difference." This is the same Satanic tactic that Paul wrote Titus about when he quoted a false teacher as saying, -"One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans are always liars, EVIL BEASTS, lazy gluttons." this testimony is true."
OTHER POINTS TO CONSIDER: Jesus called Peter "Satan" when he was acting outside of the interests of God, -Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's." (Matthew 16:23) Jesus did not mean to imply that Peter was actually Satan or even a child of the devil. He was showing us that anything outside of the interests of God is of the devil.
In Acts Chapter 2, we read the sermon which the Apostle Peter delivered to Jews who had come to Jerusalem for the feast of Pentecost. Peter said, "This man (Jesus), delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, YOU NAILED TO A CROSS by the hands of godless men and PUT HIM TO DEATH." (Verse 23) As a result of this strong preaching, three thousand of those Jews repented of their sins and received Jesus as their Savior that very day. Surely, some in this number were among the ones who had participated in conspiring to have Jesus murdered, otherwise Peter's searing message would not have applied. Jesus called those Jews who desired to murder Him, children of the devil. So, what we see taking place on Pentecost is men who were previously doing the works of their father, the devil, repent and become the children of God.
Is the Gospel Message of Salvation only for the "White Race?"
Are all White people the physical Descendants of Abraham?
Are the "Gentiles" of the New Testament really Israelites who had lost their Identity?
Is the Church of God composed of Whites only?
Is There a Great "Jewish" Controversy to hide who the real Israel is?
The "Christian Identity" movement says that only White can be Christians -is this true?
It is true that Israel was split into two separate nations after the death of Solomon and that the Northern Kingdom composed of ten tribes were called the House of Israel, while the Southern Kingdom was hence referred to as the House of Judah. The Northern Kingdom was conquered by the Assyrian Empire in 721 B.C. and carried away as slaves. I believe that it is correct to say that they eventually lost their identity. The famous first century Jewish historian Josephus wrote about the lost tribes, saying that they were migrating tribes and even mentioned their location. It is reasonable to believe that some of these tribes later became nations in Europe. There is much evidence to suggest that this occurred.
However, to come to the conclusion that all the white nations of Europe are the descendants of the lost Ten Tribes of Israel would mean rewriting the history of Europe. Clearly the Greek empire under Alexander the Great was a white race, as was the Roman Empire during the time of Jesus. Jesus prophesied that He would be handed over to the "Gentiles" to "godless men." Here the term "godless men" is referring to Roman Gentiles. Also, there are some who study history who believe that the Assyrians were a white race who later became known as the Germanic peoples of Europe. Both the Assyrians and the Germans call their home the "fatherland" which is very rare, rather than the "motherland" which is the common reference to a peoples homeland. In Scripture the Assyrians are called the "scourge of Israel" and it was this people who conquered the House of Israel.
In Matthew Chapter 10 we find that Jesus sent His disciples to the "Lost Sheep of Israel" and told them not to go the way of Samaria or the way of the Gentiles. Jesus clearly knew where these lost tribes were when He sent them out, but obviously they did not reside in Samaria since He told them not to go there. Samaritans looked so much like any other Jew that they claimed to be their brothers from time to time.(according to Josephus)
It is also true that Jesus was sent only to the children of Israel. But it is also true that He came to save the whole world from sin and instructed His disciples to "go make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20) Paul taught the Galatians that the Gospel had been preached to Abraham beforehand, Notice, -"The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, ALL NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU." (Gal. 3:8) This "blessing" is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ would come to the Gentiles -"In order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the spirit through faith." (Verse 14) We see that faith in Jesus was not limited to Abraham's physical descendants but that the Gospel is for ALL NATIONS.
The Covenants were offered to all twelve tribes of Israel at the foot of Mt. Sinai. This occurred before Israel split into two nations. If the "Gentiles" of the NT were really the lost Ten Tribes of Israel Paul would not have said that they were strangers to the Covenants. "Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles IN THE FLESH, who are called "Uncircumcision" by the so-called "Circumcision", which is performed in the flesh by human hands -remember that you were AT THAT TIME separate from Christ, EXCLUDED FROM THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL, and STRANGERS TO THE COVENANTS of promise, having no hope and without God in the world." (Ephesians 2:11-12) Though they are Gentiles "in the flesh" they are Israel in the spirit. In Philippians 3:3 he called them the "true circumcision." They were never circumcised in the flesh by the "human hands" but were circumcised of heart by the hands of God. The Gentiles were never a part of the "commonwealth of Israel" and they had been "strangers to the Covenants."
Acts 17:30 -Says that God commands "all men everywhere" to repent.
Romans 2:10-11 -Says that glory will come to the man who "does good", to the Jew first and also to the Greek, for God is no respecter of persons.
Colossians 1:23 -Says that the Gospel is to be preached to "every creature which is under heaven."
WHO IS THE TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD?
ARE THEY ONLY THE PHYSICAL DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM?
The Gospel was preached beforehand to Abraham when God said "ALL NATIONS will be blessed in you." Every tribe, tongue and nation would have the opportunity to receive the blessing of Abraham which is the Covenant of Promise. This is the Christian Covenant. The Scripture, foreseeing that God would JUSTIFY THE GENTILES by faith, PREACHED THE GOSPEL beforehand TO ABRAHAM, saying, "ALL NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU." (Galatians 3:7-8) Notice how Paul continues this revelation, -For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. THERE IS NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; FOR YOU ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. And if you belong to Christ, then you are ABRAHAM'S DESCENDANTS, HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE." (Verses 26-29) What does it take to become one of Abraham's descendants and heirs of the promise? To have faith in and "belong to Christ." In Chapter 6, verses 15 and 16 Paul says that they have become a "New Creation" and are the "Israel of God."
Romans 9:6-8, -"For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; nor are they all children because they are Abraham's descendants, but; "THROUGH ISAAC YOUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE NAMED." That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants." "Israel" is the name given to Jacob after he wrestled with the Lord in the wilderness of Penuel. Therefore, we can read the first sentence with this understanding, -"For they are not all Israel who are descended from Jacob." (Israel) The Apostle is revealing new truth here, that it is not the "children of the flesh", -not the natural descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who are the true heirs, but the children of the promise. Isaac, not Jacob was the child of promise, and when we enter into Abraham's Covenant of Promise, we become his children and heirs of the promises.
Ephesians 3:3-8, -"That by revelation there was made known to me the Mystery, as I wrote before in brief. By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the MYSTERY OF CHRIST, which in OTHER GENERATIONS was NOT MADE KNOWN to the sons of men, as it has NOW BEEN REVEALED TO THIS HOLY APOSTLES and PROPHETS in the SPIRIT; to be specific, that the GENTILES ARE FELLOW HEIRS and fellow MEMBERS OF THE BODY, and fellow PARTAKERS OF THE PROMISE IN CHRIST JESUS through the GOSPEL, of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God's grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to PREACH TO THE GENTILES the UNFATHOMABLE RICHES OF CHRIST." We see here, that until the Church was established, and the Apostles and Prophets of Christ received revelation and were sent forth, the Mystery of Christ was not made known. This was a new revelation from God through the Apostles and Prophets. The Mystery of Christ is that the Gentiles who had been alienated from God can now be saved and become "fellow heirs" and "members of the body" and "partakers of the promises" of Abraham to whom the promise was given. That the Gentiles could come to God through Christ.
This is what the Apostle Peter meant when he wrote, -"As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the GRACE THAT WOULD COME TO YOU made careful searches and inquiries, SEEKING TO KNOW what person or time the SPIRIT OF CHRIST WITHIN THEM was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. IT WAS REVEALED TO THEM THAT THEY WERE NOT SERVING THEMSELVES, BUT YOU, in these things which NOW HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED TO YOU through THOSE who PREACHED THE GOSPEL to you by the holy spirit sent from heaven - things into which ANGELS LONG TO LOOK." (1 Peter 1:12) This good news was revealed by those who preached the Gospel. Notice also that even "angels long to look" -they are watching to see how the Mystery of Christ unfolds.
Ephesians 3:8-11, -"To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to PREACH TO THE GENTILES the unfathomable riches of Christ, and the BRING TO LIGHT what is the administration of the MYSTERY which FOR THE AGES HAS BEEN HIDDEN IN GOD who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might NOW BE MADE KNOWN THROUGH THE CHURCH to the RULERS and the AUTHORITIES in the HEAVENLY PLACES. This was in accordance with the ETERNAL PURPOSE which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord." What was the "eternal purpose" which was carried out "in Christ Jesus?" It was that all men who would call upon the name of the Lord and repent of their sins would receive God's mercy and salvation through the sacrifice of Christ. Notice also, that "Rulers" and "Authorities" in heavenly places are learning God's Mystery "through the Church." This Mystery not been made known to the "sons of men" nor to "Authorities" in heaven.
We see in John 3 where Jesus spoke with the Jewish leader Nicodemus and told him that if he wanted to see the Kingdom of God that he must be "born again." For fear of the Jews, Nicodemus came to Jesus at night. He said, "We know you are a teacher from God because no one could do these signs unless God is with him." Jesus perceived what Nicodemus really wanted to ask - are you the promised Messiah? Is it you who is going expell the Romans and bring sovereignty back to our nation? Are you going to establish the Kingdom of God on the earth as the Prophets have foretold? Jesus answered him by saying -"Unless one is BORN AGAIN he cannot see the Kingdom of God." Nicodemus, being a son of Abraham, thought that he was an heir by birthright. Jesus was saying that it was not enough to be born of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob but that he must be born again. Jesus revealed to Nicodemus that he was in need of a spiritual birth to enter into the Kingdom of God. So, we see that it is not the children of the flesh who are heirs but the children of the promise, born of the spirit who are heirs. Even Jews and Israelites of the other tribes must be born again of the spirit to become the true heirs of the Kingdom.
Paul instructed the Church to not recognize anyone according to what they are in the flesh and that God is reconciling the whole world through His Son. "Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, YET NOW we know Him in this WAY NO LONGER. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, NAMELY that God was in Christ RECONCILING THE WORLD to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." (2 Corinthians 5:16-20) It is clear that Jesus gave His precious life for the sins of the whole world, not just the physical descendants of Abraham as this Heresy teaches. Those who bring this teaching are not "ambassadors for Christ" and are not "making an appeal" for the WORLD, including non-Israelites, to "be reconciled to God." They are preaching ANOTHER GOSPEL and ANOTHER JESUS who did not give His life for all but for only the White race. (2 Corinthians 11:2-4)
Wolves -Do you find them charming? This shouldn't surprise you, -"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) Jude calls false teachers "hidden reefs" who "feast with you." When Hymenaeus and Alexander received a doctrine of demons they hit one of those "hidden reefs" and "suffered shipwreck in regards to their faith." (1 Timothy 1:18-20) Sadly, as a result they became "hidden reefs" themselves and Paul had to "hand them over to Satan."
I have been inspired by the life and acts of Polycarp who was a disciple of the Apostle John. He was so greatly respected and served as an unyielding pillar in the Church of God. In the second century AD when Gnostic "Christianity" was beginning to draw many away from the true faith, he had a famous encounter with the great Gnostic Heretic, Marcion. Marcion knew how valuable an indorsement from Polycarp would be to the Gnostic movement, so he publicly asked, -"Recognize us Polycarp." To which Polycarp replied with a loud voice, -"Yes, I recognize the first-born of Satan!" Polycarp knew he could not extend the right hand of fellowship to those who were proclaiming a perverted gospel. I give thanks to God for raising up a faithful man who would make a stand for the truth of the gospel so boldly. Later this great saint stood in the midst of flames as he was burned at the stake.

That the TWO SEEDS teaching is a Heresy and anyone who teaches it is a Heretic
That this teaching plants the seeds of hate not love
That the children of Light can have no fellowship with the workers of darkness
That it is the duty of the faithful to expose evil intentions
Let us never forget that the Apostle John warned that if a person goes "too far" off in his theology he will lose both the Father and the Son. he goes from being a "victim" to being a "wolf" when he begins to teach it and spread its poison. John goes on to say that the faithful are not to receive such a person in their house or even greet him. "For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who GOES TOO FAR and DOES NOT ABIDE IN THE TEACHING OF CHRIST, does not have God; the one who ABIDES in the TEACHING, he has BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, DO NOT RECEIVE HIM into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds." (2 John vs 7-11)
If the teaching is dark, the teacher is in darkness
