“The Seed of Satan and the Seed of God’s Creation”

In Genesis 6 we see the formation of hybrids; a combination of humans and fallen angels. This is the ultimate rejection to God’s creation. It is lifting our fist to God and saying, “we chose what we are, not you.” What we are witnessing today and, all through history, is the results of two seeds, the seed of the woman and the seed of Satan. Genesis 3:15 tells us,

And I will put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
    and you will strike his heel.” (NIV)

Here God is speaking to the serpent (The Devil himself). This is the first window not only of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as Jesus will be the one crushing the devil’s head, but is also a prophetic announcement of the struggle of God’s creation to survive the wicket attacks of the devil and his evil forces. 

There is no doubt that the struggle against evil continues to this day. Jude 1:4 confirms this by stating, “Forcertain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnationungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.”[1]

Jude is making it very clear that these hybrids were marked for condemnation; they are unredeemable. These are the Hybrids we saw as the result of the fallen angels having sex with the daughters of men in Genesis 6. The word certain is the Greek Word τὶς tis; meaning, “Particularly and generally of some person or thing whom one cannot or does not wish to name or specify particularly.”[2] The word ungodly is also important to make the point that these things are just that, “ungodly”, meaning that there is nothing Godly in them; they are evil continuously (Genesis 6:5). Even as I make the point that every human soul is damaged; these hybrid souls cannot be redeemed; they are indeed marked for condemnation.

The devil is striking our heel by affecting our souls and affecting our health. The seed of the woman spoken of in Genesis 3:15 is the seed of God’s creation; of those who are genetically clean. Being genetically clean does not equal moral perfection. We see that with Noah and his family; even as they were genetically pure; they were still morally flawed. We are all affected in our souls and in our spirits because of the original sin introduced by Adam and Eve. However, those who are genetically pure will be redeemed by God. That is what He is doing; that is the reason Jesus died on the cross and offered himself as a sacrifice.
