The Serpent Race in the Gospel of Matthew

‘The Devil Sowing Tares’ -Abraham Bloemaert

In recent writings I have endeavoured to illustrate that the events of Genesis chapters 1-3 represent the creation of the children of God, and the corruption of that creation by Satan. This culminates in the conflict of Genesis 3.15:

“I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.”
-Genesis 3

‘Adam: The Patriarch of One Race’

‘The Origins of the Serpent Seed’

‘The Satanic Origins of the Kenite, Canaanite and Edomite Jews’

‘Fornication, Adultery and Idolatry: a Biblical Case Against Miscegenation’

‘The Origins of the Non-Adamic Races’

This narrative is shrouded in idioms long lost to time and the death of ancient Mesopotamian culture, but we must also understand that the details of these events had not been fully illuminated until the days of Christ:

“34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
-Matthew 13

“The foundation of the world” is a reference to the opening chapters of Genesis and the creation when the foundations of the earth were laid. Now let’s see what Jesus revealed to us. “He who has ears to hear, let him hear”:

“24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
-Matthew 13

As I hope to have established in prerequisite writings, plant life often symbolizes family trees, races and nations. There are dozens of passages in Scripture which use this idiom, but here Christ explains the idiom to us himself:

“36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed [sperma, G4690] is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed [sperma, G4690] are the children [huioi, Strong’s G5207, meaning a son or descendant] of the kingdom; but the tares are the children [huioi G5207] of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
-Matthew 13

Here Christ explains to us in no uncertain terms that there are souls planted in this world who have their origin not with God, but Satan. His words recall to mind Malachi 4.2

“1For, behold, a day comes burning as an oven, and it shall consume them; and all the aliens [allogeneis, Strong’s G241, meaning literally “of another race”], and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that is coming shall set them on fire, saith the Lord Almighty, and there shall not be left of them root or branch. 2But to you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise, and healing shall be in his wings: and ye shall go forth, and bound as young calves let loose from bonds. 3And ye shall trample the wicked; for they shall be ashes underneath your feet in the day which I appoint, saith the Lord Almighty.”
-Malachi 4

In the New Testament there is a great deal of evidence for what I endeavour to demonstrate but for now we will focus on Matthew.

In the second chapter of Matthew we find that King Herod is greatly troubled by the birth of Christ and seeks to kill him slaughtering many baby boys in the process.

King Herod and the entire Herodian dynasty were Edomites by race, and this is affirmed many times in the writings of Flavius Josephus (Antiquities 14.3, 12.8 et al.).

These Edomites had risen to the peaks of power in Judaea through murder of the Hasmonean dynasty and by bribing Mark Antony. This demonic madman, Herod “the Great”, is spoken of in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and there we find him fittingly playing the role allotted to the dragon, who represents the entire serpent race:

“1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman [Israel] clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars [the tribes]:

2 And she being with child [the Christ] cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon [the serpent seed], having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven [the rebellious Angels], and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child [Christ] as soon as it was born.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.”
-Revelation 12

Continuing with our investigation of the serpent race in the Gospel of Matthew we arrive at the 3rd chapter and the introduction of John the Baptist. John is baptizing people in the river and the Judaean religious authorities (mostly appointed by the Herodians) approach him to inquire of him concerning his ministry:

“7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O offspring [Strong’s G1081] of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father [the Edomites descended paternally from Abraham]: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
-Matthew 3

Right away John rebukes these men calling them a race of vipers. This is of course a reference to the serpent seed. See that he tells them not to pride themselves in their descent from Abraham.

The Edomites descended from Abraham’s race-mixing grandson Esau, and on their maternal side they descended from a conglomeration of non-Adamic tribes which the Edomites had been joined to since their first generation. Esau-Edom had fallen from a high place as the firstborn of Isaac to a lowly place as the most despised nation of Scripture because of his fornication.

John said to his opponents “even now the axe is laid to the root of the tree”. Jesus had come to the land and was about to begin his ministry. His ministry would divide the people of Judaea and thus the judgement of the trees was underway.

The Edomites were of a vile spirit after their profane, idolatrous fornicating ancestors and so they would naturally be opposed to the gospel of Christ, but they had other reasons for despising Christ’s ministry.

The Edomites had only recently solidified their power in Judaea but were well on their way to complete racial and political domination of Judaea. Esau has long coveted Jacob’s covenant with God, and has constantly sought to do harm to Israel.

A religious reformation in Judaea threatened their newly found dominance of Judaeanism and all they had murdered and bribed to achieve. Thus these infiltrators were zealous enemies of Christ and his followers by necessity.

Verse 12 is a clear reference to the harvest as described by Christ in the parable of the wheat and the tares and a reminder to the serpent seed that its days are numbered.

Carrying on with Matthew we arrive in chapter 7 where Christ makes yet another reference to the hewing down and burning of evil plants (races) while also offering us helpful advice for distinguishing wheat and tares:

“15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
-Matthew 7

Tares (lolium temulentum) look very much like wheat. It is for this reason that the master of the field (God) tells his servants to wait until the harvest is ripe to root up the tares, lest they uproot wheat along with them.

Edomite-Canaanite Jews are generally united by certain Armenoid or Arabid racial traits, but they are generally predominantly Europoid in phenotype. They often fit in well in Europe with Sephardim often passing as Southern or Western European and Ashkenazim as Northern or Eastern European.

Edomite Jews can often blend in very well racially among Israelite Christians, and these “ravenous wolves” use this to enter our fold. Christ assures us that their deeds will expose them to the watchful Christian who knows them by their fruits.

In Matthew chapter 12 we find similar statements. This time in the context of the blasphemy of the Pharisees:

“33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

34 Offspring [gennemata, Strong’s G1081] of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.”
-Matthew 12

Now we have arrived back at chapter 13 where I introduced the topic with the parable of the wheat and the tares. Here we find another parable echoing the same theme as that of the parable of the wheat and the tares:

“47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind [genos, Strong’s G1053, meaning race]:

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
-Matthew 13

By now the implications of this verse should be clear and require no further explanation. Recall now when Christ told certain of his disciples they would be fishers of men (Matthew 4.19).

There is one reference to the serpent seed found in Matthew chapter 15. It is brief, but provides another witness that God did not plant every race on this earth. After his disciples inform Jesus that he has offended the Pharisees with his teachings we read:

“13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
-Matthew 15

Here in Matthew 21 Christ performs a miracle which indicates the fulfillment and sealing of prophecy:

“18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.”
-Matthew 21

Jeremiah prophecied of the corruption of the stock of Judaea in chapter 24. Here the prophet refers to the Edomites and halfbreeds of Judaea as “bad figs” and the Israelites of Judaea as “good figs”.

“1The Lord shewed me two baskets of figs, lying in front of the temple of the Lord, after Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon had carried captive Jechonias son of Joakim king of Juda, and the princes, and the artificers, and the prisoners, and the rich men out of Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. 2The one basket was full of very good figs, as the early figs; and the other basket was full of very bad figs, which could not be eaten, for their badness. 3And the Lord said to me, What seest thou, Jeremias? and I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the bad, very bad, which cannot be eaten, for their badness.

4And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 5Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; As these good figs, so will I acknowledge the Judeans that have been carried away captive, whom I have sent forth out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for good. 6And I will fix mine eyes upon them for good, and I will restore them into this land for good: and I will build them up, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7And I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be to me a people, and I will be to them a God: for they shall turn to me with all their heart.

8And as the bad figs, which cannot be eaten, for their badness; thus saith the Lord, So will I deliver Sedekias king of Juda, and his nobles, and the remnant of Jerusalem, them that are left in this land, and the dwellers in Egypt. 9And I will cause them to be dispersed into all the kingdoms of the earth, and they shall be for a reproach, and a proverb, and an object of hatred, and a curse, in every place whither I have driven them out.”
-Jeremiah 24

The prophet Jeremiah speaks here of “the remnant of Jerusalem, them that are left in this land, and the dwellers in Egypt.” These are Judaeans who evaded the Babylonian captivity and remained in Judaea and neighbouring regions.

They came to be overwhelmed by the Edomites, Canaanites and others who moved into the lands of Israel and Judah after they were deported by the Assyrians and Babylonians.

The result was a nation partially comprised of paganized and racially impure Judaeans. These events predate even the Edomite conversion to Judaism in 125 BC. The fornication and heresy of Judah was known well to the prophet:

“20For of old thou hast broken thy yoke, and plucked asunder thy bands; and thou has said, I will not serve thee, but will go upon every high hill, and under every shady tree, there will I indulge in my fornication.

21Yet I planted thee a fruitful vine, entirely of the right sort: how art thou a strange vine turned to bitterness!

22Though thou shouldest wash thyself with nitre, and multiply to thyself soap, still thou art stained by thine iniquities before me, saith the Lord.”
-Jeremiah 2

These” bad figs” of Judah and the vision of Jeremiah are alluded to again in the New Testament when Christ twice cursed the fig tree upon finding the temple turned into a “den of theives” (Matthew 21:18–22, Mark 11:12–14, 11:20–25).

Next we come to chapter 23 and a lengthly rebuke by Christ to the scribes and Pharisees:

“29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

33 Ye serpents, ye offspring [G1081] of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this brood [genean, G1074].”
-Matthew 23

The Scriptures do not inform us of how the prophets each died, but on occasions when the priests of God are murdered we see characters such as Jezebel the Canaanitess or Doeg the Edomite responsible.

Christ holds their race responsible for all the righteous blood shed upon the earth from Abel unto Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. This links one race from Cain in Eden to the 1st century Judaeans.

Christ was speaking to the scribes and Pharisees. The Pharisees were a mix of Israelites and Edomites like the rest of the 1st century Judaeans, but the scribes may have had among them Kenites, as some Kenites (sons of Cain) had been employed as scribes by the Judahites even before the Edomites began to be absorbed into Judaea (1Chronicles 2.55).

Even in more ancient times the Israelite tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi that would form the Kingdom of Judah had struggled with miscegenation and cohabitation with the Kenites and Canaanites. In Genesis 38.1-5 we read that Judah married Shuah, a Canaanitess who bore him three mongrel sons, Er, Onan and Shelah. While Er and Onan were both slain by God, Shelah lived and his descendants remained among Judah as we see in Numbers 26.20.

Only thanks to the wit of Tamar did Judah have Adamic posterity and we see that the sons of Tamar were counted as the first and second born of Judah. This is despite the fact that Shelah was their elder brother, proving the illegitimate status of the Canaanite mongrel. In Judges 1.21 we find that the Canaanite tribe of the Jebusites settled among the tribe of Benjamin in Jerusalem and we find in Joshua 15.63 that these Jebusites remained there.

The Kenites had become absorbed into the Canaanite nations at an early time, and Esau-Edom had become absorbed partially into the Canaanites, thus all three tribal groups carried some of Cain’s DNA. It is also likely that many of the Judaean elders were Canaanites themselves (Zechariah 14.21, Susanna 1.56) and so it’s possible all three cursed lineages had direct descendants in the 1st century Judaean populace, particularly among scribes and Pharisees. Thus Christ rightly accuses their brood of shedding the blood of Abel and Zacharias, and of all the righteous priests of God.

We now come near to the end of Christ’s conflict with the serpent seed during his earthly ministry. Of course Jesus was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver by Judah of Kerioth aka Judas Iscariot.

Judas was certainly an Edomite. Kerioth was 10 miles south of Hebron in what was called Idumea (Edom) in the time of Christ due to Edomite settlement.

Christ said that one of the twelve was a devil (John 6.70) and of course this was Judas who ultimately betrayed him to the Judaean authorities:

“15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.”
-Matthew 27

Pilate obviously objected to the killing of Christ and had found him innocent. He washed his hands of the matter and the Judaean masses declared “his blood be on us and our descendants”.

The Edomite Jews typically try to blame the Romans for the death of Jesus, but Jesus may forgive the Romans and his children among the Judaeans who participated in his torment and death. The children of Satan who they abided with have no hope of redemption.
