this one seemed to still have the aragrahs. so, I am going to do it here, to see if it goes to the board that way.
~ Proof that Satan is Adam ~
Today is Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2007. This will be my first message in 2007. It will be only a small account of this matter. Let’s look at some Scripture which identifies this dragon, which is the beast, which is mankind. I have already proven this message so many different ways and from many Scriptures, yet people still deny this truth. So here is yet another solid proof in Scripture, that Satan is Adam, the Serpent.
Re 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon , having seven heads and ten horns , and seven crowns upon his heads.
Notice the description here of the dragon. He is red . Strongs: (Adam) — rom 0119 ; TWOT – 25a; n m AV – man 408, men 121, Adam 13, person(s) 8, common sort + 07230 1, hypocrite 1; 552 1) man, mankind 1a) man, human being
0119 // Mda // ‘adam // aw-dam’ // 0119 // Mda // ‘adam // aw-dam’ // of unknown derivation; TWOT – 26b; v AV – dyed red 5, red 4 ruddy 1; 10 1) to be red, red 1c1) to cause to show red 1c2) to glare 1c3) to emit (show) redness 1a) (Qal) ruddy (of Nazarites) 1b) (Pual) 1b1) to be rubbed red 1b2) dyed red 1b3) reddened 1c) (Hiphil) 1d) (Hithpael) 1d1) to redden 1d2) to grow red 1d3) to look red
Now the above is Strongs meaning of Adam. Here is his meaning for dragon: 1404 // drakwn // drakon // drak’-own // probably from an alternate form of derkomai (to look); TDNT – 2:281,186; n m AV – dragon 13; 13 1) a dragon, a great serpent, a name for Satan
Why RED? The Word declares that our sins are red, scarlet, crimson, which are shades of red. Red shows sin. So this dragon was or is full of sin.
Re 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, Re 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. Re 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent , called the Devil , and Satan , which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Now after this old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, was cast out of heaven, (in the Spirit), he was cast out (0f the garden of Eden) into the earth.
So after he is cast into the earth, what shows up on earth? Re 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns , and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. Re 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (HE is called a beast now, for he has been reduced to human mortal flesh.)
Here a ‘beast’ comes up out of the sea upon the sand of the sea. What is the description of this ‘beast’? It is identical to the dragon in heaven. Notice that it is also described exactly as having all the characteristics of the beast described in Daniel. This beast is the kingdoms of man on earth. It has the seven heads and the ten horns. This kingdom is full of the name of blasphemy. This is that dragon after he was cast out of heaven and came up on earth. It is the very same being or kingdom. This change from heaven to earth took place when God clothed the ‘heavens’, Adam and Eve, the Spiritual people, with darkness, or this mortal flesh. It is where God clothed them with skin, which is our mortal flesh.
So after they became mortal beings, they were no longer in the Spirit, or heaven. They are now in flesh, or on earth. So Adam, Satan, again sets up his kingdom. This time it is on earth, but it is the very same kind of kingdom, full of sin.
Look at this verse one more time: Re 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Now this verse clearly shows that the dragon is that old serpent, and he is called the Devil and Satan. Now I can not see how anyone can keep denying this much proof that the old serpent which deceived Eve is also this same dragon, Satan. They are one and the same person. If you deny this, you must call the Word of God a lie. So why bother to claim that you read it, believe it, or teach it?
Here is the verifying Scripture that this dragon is also the old serpent, which is Satan: Re 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Now you must simply totally disregard Scripture to keep saying that Satan USED the serpent to deceive Eve. No Scripture says this. I have proven here by several perfectly quoted verses that the old serpent is actually that dragon, Satan, the Devil. So everyone who claims that the dragon is different from the serpent or Satan or the Devil, is showing that they do not know the Word of God and that they do not believe the Word of God and they most certainly are not teaching the Word of God. They are teaching some man’s made-up junk.
