Are Lucifer And Satan The Same? Follow Up

Q. In a recent Q & A you said in Gen 3:1 serpent is actually enchanter. Please send me the details about this as some church people do not believe the serpent is Satan.

A. Look up the Hebrew word translated serpent. According to Strong’s concordance the word is nachash, which has 2 different concordance numbers, H5172 and H5175. H5175 appears in Genesis 3:1 and is translated serpent. It’s derived from the other one, H5172, which is translated enchantment or enchanter. But you don’t have to go through all the linguistics to prove the serpent is Satan. Just look at Rev. 12:9 where the dragon is called the ancient serpent, the devil, and Satan all in the same sentence.
