Sex Affair In The Garden of Eden

| June 3, 2011

Did the sin in the Garden of Eden really consist of Adam and Eve eating a big juicy “apple”?

Unfortunately this is what many people have been taught since Sunday school. But think about how silly this sounds. It sounds silly because throughout the Bible God teaches in parables using things in nature to teach us spiritual truths (Matthew 13:34-35). And the explanation of the sin in the Garden is no exception.

So let us examine a passage concerning this in Genesis Ch.3:

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, “Yea, hath God said, ‘Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden’? –vs.1

Do you know of any snakes that can talk?

Of course not. So we must be reading a parable then. And if you turn over to Revelation 12:9 you’ll find a major piece to this parable revealed to us. There it states that the serpent is just another name for Satan. I know, I know, God did cause a dumb “ass” to speak to someone once (Numbers 22:28). But this is different. God doesn’t use animals to tempt people to do evil. In fact God never tempts people to do evil period. Satan is the tempter, not God.

So Eve isn’t talking to a serpent, she is conversing with Satan.

He is likened to a cunning serpent because of his ability to be crafty, persuasive, and deceptive. And he has now come into the Garden of Eden to persuade Adam and Eve into doing something with him. We’ll find out what that is.

But first, let us see how Eve responds:

And the woman said unto the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But 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.’”

Eve explains here to Satan that they could eat of all the fruit trees, but they were commanded not to eat of or “touch” the tree which is in the midst of the garden.

Remember this is a parable, and the tree in the midst of the garden is not a fruit tree like the other trees. This tree represents Satan; he is the tree of knowledge of good and evil. So in other words they were supposed to have nothing to do with Satan. They were to stay away from him!

And this word “touch” mentioned here in this verse is an interesting word in the Hebrew that helps us to understand the meaning of this parable. It is Hebrew word #5060 in your Strong’s Concordance:

naga – to touch, i.e. lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphem., to lie with a woman).

You see to “touch” is simply a nice way of saying to have “sexual intercourse with”. It’s a euphemism. And the fruit of that tree is the seed or “sperm” that would develop in the womb of Eve if she were to partake.

So one of the things Adam and Eve were commanded not to do was to have a sexual encounter with Satan. This was not to be done.

But they didn’t listen and two seeds were planted in the womb of Eve as a result. One from Adam and the other from Satan. Twins! One very good (Abel) and the other very bad (Cain).

Some would immediately say, “That’s impossible, no one can have a two children at the same time by two different fathers. Well, to many people’s surprise this happens more often than you may think. I don’t know how to pronounce it but the medical community calls it superfecundation :) It’s just not usually noticed unless the children happen to be of two different races.

So yes, Satan was Cain’s paternal Father. (See article on “The Serpent seed“)

And you’ll find in I John 3:12 that it says that “Cain was of that wicked one”. Meaning he was the progeny of Satan. Also II Corinthians 11:3 Paul explains that Eve was beguiled (wholly seduced) by Satan. Yes sexually seduced, just like Genesis Ch.3 revealed to us.

If you want to read some fascinating historical documentation showing that Cain was Satan’s son, along with many details of Cain’s influence across the globe, you have to read Sargon the Magnificent. I’ve never read a more interesting book concerning the roots of Mystery Babylon and its connection to Cain.

So let us put the “apple theory” aside and mature as Christians. The sin in the Garden of Eden was a love affair between three people – Adam, Eve, and Satan. It had nothing to do with eating a big red juicy apple. Besides most people I know didn’t get pregnant by eating apples (Genesis 3:15). And most people I know don’t eat apples while they are naked, or be ashamed for eating an apple (Genesis 3:7).

God Bless,

    very insightful.. good food for thought..
    here is a few other scripture on those lines..
    (many other fallen angels.. committing sexual sins with humans)
    ——————
    And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 1:6-7 NKJV
    ——————

    A World Gone Wrong
    1 Then the people began to multiply on the earth, and daughters were born to them. 2 The sons of God saw the beautiful women[a] and took any they wanted as their wives. 3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not put up with[b] humans for such a long time, for they are only mortal flesh. In the future, their normal lifespan will be no more than 120 years.”

    4 In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.

    5 The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. 6 So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. 7 And the LORD said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.” 8 But Noah found favor with the LORD. Genesis 6:1-5 NLT

  2. Brenda I’m sorry this article has disturbed you. I agree it isn’t pleasant to think about Satan committing sexual acts with Adam and Eve or anyone else. But swinging and sexual immorality had to start somewhere, and of course it starts with Satan.

    Many Hebrew scholars are in agreement that Cain was Satan’s son for a number of reasons. There are times when English translations just don’t grasp the full thought or are able to capture various figures of speech and things like that. And that’s when you need other witnesses in scripture to validate a certain interpretation. And we get those witnesses from Genesis 3:15 when we are told that Satan has a “seed” or “offspring” on this earth and when Christ explained this mystery in the Parable of the Tares (Matthew 13:24-43). During that teaching our Lord Jesus Christ stated that the “tares” represent the literal seed or offspring of the Wicked One.

    Please go to http://serpent-seed.com to watch and read many other works I have done documenting these things. If you still disagree, that’s ok, I still consider you my sister in Christ.

  3. Anna Midgett says:

    Okay… Although you do have many valid points about this story, such as Satan not literally being a snake, there are a few things that just don’t work.

    Firstly, the tree of knowledge being . The Bible is talking about God literally constructing the garden of Eden and talks about this tree, as well as the tree of life, growing out of the ground.

    Genesis 2:9 KJV

    And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    Then, it goes on to say that Eve saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food…

    Genesis 3:6 KJV

    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.

    If this is all a metaphor, then it would seem as if the entirety of Genesis before it would also have to be a metaphor. Yes, a fruit condemning a man to death may seem a bit silly, but God has done crazier things. Like making a man out of dust, or a woman out of a rib.

    Also, Satan hates God, and hates man because he is made in God’s image… So why would he bear a literal descendant with a human?

    Yes, Satan does have “children,” but God gave them over to evil because they chose it, as it says in Romans 1:28-32. They started out God’s children and then became evil by choice, not blood.

    Please elaborate if possible, I’m very interested in hearing what you’ve got to say.

    • Thanks for the comment Anna. Indeed the symbolism used in Genesis 2-3 can be difficult to understand at times. In fact, understanding when something is to be taken literal or figurative is probably what causes the most confusion for Bible Students. Sometimes it doesn’t always seem clear. However, there is a reason for this. Not everyone is supposed to understand everything in the Bible, especially the mysteries of the Kingdom.

      This is why Christ said:

      “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given…Therefore I speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” -Matthew 13:11, 13

      No matter how many points I make, no matter how many scriptures I point out, one has to be given “eyes to see and ears to hear” by the LORD Himself in order to understand the great mystery of what truly happened in the Garden of Eden. Even some of the most learned scholars cannot grasp this and other mysteries, the same as the great scholars of the day could not perceive that Jesus was the Christ.
