1. Introduction

On April 22nd, 2010, I wrote that “The temptation and fall of man is WRITTEN IN A PARABLE”  At that time, I wrote that the Fall of Man was written in a Parable and therefore should not be interpreted literally.

Three of the keys to understanding the Parable are as follows:

  • Tree of the knowledge of good and evil = satan;  doctrine of devils, sin.
  • Fruit = doctrine; results; lifestyle.
  • Serpent = devil, satan.

 

However, the New Testament scriptures clearly reveal through the Apostles Paul and John that SATAN IS THE SERPENT!

 
 
2. Apostle Paul clearly identified satan as the serpent in the Temptation of Adam and Eve
 
I am grieved when I hear people refer to the serpent as an actual, talking serpent. I myself used to believe that at one time.
 
Apostle Paul taught us in the following text that satan is the serpent  (Ophis/G3789):
 
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent3789 beguiled 1818Eve through his subtilty 3834, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with [him] (2 Corinthians 11: 3 & 4).

 

 

3. Apostle John also revealed that Satan is the serpent

Through the use of repitition, Apostle John emphasized the deception of the devil. He is the GREAT DRAGON, SERPENT, DEVIL AND SATAN:

And the great dragon 1404 was cast out, that serpent3789, called the Devil 1228, and 2532 Satan 4567, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night  (Revelation 12: 9 – 10).

And he laid hold on the dragon 1404, that old serpent3789, which is the Devil 1228,  and Satan 4567, and bound him a thousand years (Revelation 12: 2).

More to come on the serpent. Blessings, peace, angelic prosperity and protection.
