What was this tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Or was the knowledge “from the tree of the discernment of function and dysfunction you will not eat from him given that in the day you eat from him a dying you will die.” RMT Was it an actual fruit that Chavah ate or were her eyes open to sinful sexual pleasures? The English words "good" and "evil" (or bad) do not completely convey the Hebraic meaning of the word tov and ra which are more related to the function of a person, place or thing rather than their appearance or morality as implied in the English. So, could we safely assume that the function of Chavah could have been a sexual one when she encountered Satan, because according to many ancient sources and the New Testament her first born son “Kayin” (Cain) was the offspring of the evil one!.
Kayin, was said to be "of the wicked one" (in I John 3:12).
According to certain teachings the serpent (Azazel, Nachash, and/or Sammael), seduce Chavah and she became pregnant and Kayin is the product of this union. 4:1 AND Adam knew Chavah his wife; and she conceived, and bare Kayin, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 2 And she again bares his brother Abel. Here we can see that Kayin and Abel where twins because the word said that Adam knew his wife and bore the two sons. It was until Seth that Adam knew is wife again.
Nowhere in the Bible does it say that Kayin nor Abel were Adam's son, nor were they listed in any genealogies of Adam (Genesis 5:1) so where does this leave Abel? The book of Jude states that “Enoch also, the seventh from Adam”…." Jude 1:14. In order for Enoch to be consider seventh from Adam you must include Abel being righteous before YAHUWAH and his sacrifice was accepted surely YAHUWAH would not exclude Abel. Without Abel being counted Enoch would be the sixth from Adam but, on the other hand, when looking at Kayin, the scripture says that Kayin is said to be "of the wicked one" ( I John 3:12). The Bible even states the third son born to Chavah, Seth, was the first child born to her that actually resembled Adam (Genesis 5:3)! Could the first two offspring of the Bible possess the blood of someone else? Let’s look closer to examine the scriptures and other teachings, in the King James Version of 1611 of the bible and other books as well as a book called the Zohar also known as the (the Book of Splendor).
The Zohar was written in Castile in the last third of the 13th century and is first quoted in kabbalistic works after 1291. The main author of the work was R. Moses de Leon, but two sections, Ra'aya Mehemna ("Loyal Shepherd," meaning Moses) and Tikkuné ha-Zohar, were written by a later anonymous kabbalist early in the 14th century). One of the motives for its publication was messianic: the belief, founded in some sections of the Zohar itself, that the knowledge of the Zohar is part of the Messianic process. The Zohar joined the Bible and Talmud in the triad of the most sacred books of Judaism.
The Zohar states "... the members of the mixed multitude are the children of the primordial (Primordial: 1 a: first created or developed: primeval 1 b: existing in or persisting from the beginning) serpent that seduced Chavah (Eve) by the tree of knowledge of good and evil, so the mixed multitude is indeed the impurity that the serpent injected into Chavah. From this impurity, which is considered the mixed multitude, Kayin (Cain) came forth and slew Hevel (Abel)..." (The Zohar: 2 Beresheet a28)
This teaching is acknowledged by Genesis 15 and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Those who have blood of the serpent and other fallen angels would go on to form what was known as "mixed multitudes". The conflict between the morals, religious beliefs, and ways of life of these mixed groups would continually oppose those who descended from Adam to this very day, for the reasons above. This would go on to form one of the most important conflicts in human history: Genesis 6:1 AND it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of YAHUWAH saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of YAHUWAH came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
When we look at Genesis 3 KJV 1611
Genesis 3:1.NOW the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD YAHUWAH had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath YAHUWAH said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, YAHUWAH hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For YAHUWAH doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as YAHUWAH, knowing good and evil. 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. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Why did they cover themselves? What made Adam say that we were naked? What had happen that they became ashamed of their appearance and began to cover themselves. Was it that Chavah was covering her belly? Immediately following in Chapter 4 states that Adam knew his wife and she conceived.
4:1. AND Adam knew Chavah his wife; and she conceived, and bare Kayin, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
To many people this is proof positive Adam had sex with his wife, and was the father of Kayin. The word knew, if we examine the original Hebrew in this verse, does have the meaning of "sex" (which makes it easy to assume they copulated). This word, however, could also stand for something totally different.
The word knew actually comes from two Hebrew words: yada and eth. The word yada not only means to "have carnal sex with", but also "to recognize", "discern", and acknowledge". The word eth is untranslatable in English, but generally relates to "a sign", "a distinguishing mark", or "omen". From these other meanings, we could reconstruct the verse into the following:
"And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Chavah..."Genesis 4:1 (KJV)
Also, the Hebrew word for conceived (in the above English translation) could mean "to already be with child". Put them all together and we gather another possible verse: Strong’s Concordance 2030 הָרָה harah (haw-reh') child (5), conceive (2), pregnant (3), pregnant woman (1), pregnant women (1), and woman with child (1), women (1), women who were with child (1), and women with child (1).
Having this understanding we could safely say that, "And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Chavah; that she was with child, and realized she was about to give birth to Kayin..." Genesis 4:1 (KJV)
Now, let’s turn toward the rest of the scripture Genesis 4:1, I have gotten a man from the LORD. It possible to say that when Chavah saw Kayin she thought she had gotten him from somewhere beyond her world.
At this point, I will quote a few passages which most of the anti-seedliners claim are “Jewish” sources, and according to them should be discredited along with and including the Talmud. Inasmuch as the Torah & Old Testament are the first volume of the Talmud, then by their perverted line-of-reasoning we would have to discard the entire Old Testament from our Bibles. (How absurd!) First, in the Aramaic Targum (Aramaic was merely one of the languages which Messiah and his disciples knew), called pseudo-Jonathan, on Genesis 3:6, which is unique inasmuch as it identifies the angel Sammael as the “ serpent ”:
“And the woman saw Sammael, the angel of death, and she was afraid and knew that the tree was good for food, and that it was a remedy for the enlightenment of the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise. She took of its fruit and ate and also gave (it) to her husband and he ate.”
Again, they will also condemn the Aramaic Targum pseudo-Jonathan, on Genesis 4:1 “And Adam knew that his wife Chavah had conceived from Sammael the Angel (of death) and she became pregnant and bore Kayin. And he was like those on high and not like those below. And she said: ‘I have got a man from the angel of the LORD.”
This rendition of Genesis 4:1 is interesting, for it speaks of the “angel of death” plus “like those on high” and “like those below.” This seems to accord with John 8:23, where Yehushua told the Canaanite variety of “Jews”: “... Ye are from beneath; and I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.”
Satan was on high until his fall, when he fell like lightning; Luke 10:18. The Palestinian Targum to Genesis 4:1: “And Adam knew his wife Chavah, who had desired the Angel; and she conceived, and bare Kayin; and she said, I have acquired a man, the angel of the Lord ...”
In another Rabbinic work: Pirke de Rabbi Eliezer, 21: “And she saw that his likeness was not of earthly beings, but of the heavenly beings, and she prophesied and said: I have gotten a man from the Lord.”
It would appear from those references that the problem with Genesis 4:1 is an omission of some of the words of the Hebrew text. I will now quote Genesis 4:1 from the King James Version and I will add the potentially needed words in italics from the Targum of Jonathan so it will make some sense:
“And Adam knew his wife Chavah, who was pregnant by Sammael, and she conceived and bare Kayin, and he was like the heavenly beings, and not like earthly beings, and she said, I have gotten a man from the angel of the Lord.”
While one might not like the source of the Aramaic Targums, still he must concede that this evidence brings the Scriptures into context, and many Hebrew scholars recognize this. One such scholar is Clarke’s Commentary, volume 1, page 58, and he suggests
a contextual problem with Genesis 4:1 as opposed to 1 John 3:12, and being aware that the meaning of the Greek word “wicked ” in this instance means “ Satan ” says the following: “... Unless she had been under Divine inspiration she could not have called her son (even supposing him to be the promised seed) Jehovah; and that she was not under such an influence her mistake sufficiently proves, for Kayin, so far [remote] from being the Messiah, was of the wicked one; I John 3:12. Could it also mean that it was time for Kayin to be born, and Adam understood it? See how easily verses could be mistranslated when people assume they should say something a certain way?
As the rest of the verse states, Chavah exclaims: "I have gotten a man from the LORD" (Genesis 4:1). According to the New Jerusalem Translation, the verse translates from the Hebrew a little differently: "... I have gotten a man from an angel of the LORD."
"An angel of the LORD"- we must remember that when Chavah saw Satan it was before the curse in Genesis 3:14-15, he was in his original state,
According to the Book of Ezekiel 28 12-14 "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord YAHUWAH; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty." 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of YAHUWAH; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of YAHUWAH; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire."
So when Chavah looked upon Satan he was beautiful and his appearance was of the angel of light, he still had his wings and was a fallen angel of the garden (not a changed serpent yet), with this understanding one could make the statement true that Chavah said that “I have gotten a man for an angel of the Lord.” Apparently Chavah thought so because, Kayin apparently carried on the attributes of his father and was someone very significant. Also we must remember that the word of YAHUWAH says that it had not rained upon the earth because there was no man to till the ground and Kayin was a tiller of the ground. Lucifer was created perfect in all his ways, but iniquity was found in him.( this is found in Ezekiel 28:15 ) Like man, the angels were created perfect, and with a free will. Satan was lifted up because of his beauty; he corrupted the wisdom by reason of his brightness (This is in Ezekiel 28:17) this is why it was easy for Kayin to murder his brother Abel.
THE GENESIS 3:15 & 4:1 CONNECTION
Unless Genesis 4:1 is properly comprehended, one simply will not be able to grasp Genesis 3:14-15. Before delving into this second passage, let’s take a look at it in the KJV: “ 14 And YAHUWAH said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel
When revisiting Genesis 3:15 we see YAHUWAH setting into place, most important in prophecies of the Bible: The verse is a little complex; divided into two parts. First, it states the seeds (or descendants) of the serpent (mixed multitude are the children of the primordial serpent) will be at enmity with the seeds of Chavah. The serpent's seed would form into one bloodline, Adam's pure, whole seed into another
The second part simply was a prediction about Yehushua himself, and how he (a member of Chavah's seed) would eventually bruise the serpent's head, but members of the serpent seed would only be able to bruise the heel of Yehushua. In other words, by crucifying him on the cross, there would be descendants of the serpent who would only be able to bruise Jesus’ "heel", but Yehushua would become victorious in the end. By raising himself from the dead, Yehushua would defeat the serpent's curse of death on the world, and rectify the curse of death Adam and Chavah brought to the world - he would crush the serpent's power, or head.
If Yehushua was from the true seed of Adam and Chavah, which the Bible clearly stated, then this prophecy would be fulfilled upon his death, burial and resurrection. The seeds of the serpent, throughout history, would possess an enmity with the blood line that would lead to Yehushua and his teachings from then on. If Kayin (and probably others) indeed had the blood (or seed) of the serpent then his descendants would, naturally, be up in arms against anything that is truly, purely, of Yehushua, and of YAHUWAH.
