Q. Thank you so much for your website which I have found very helpful. In Genesis 3:15, addressing the serpent, God says,”And I will put enmity between thy seed and her seed…” Wherever “seed” is used in the Bible referring to offspring it means physical offspring, actual children. Could the antichrist thus be Satan’s offspring? Could he be some sort of super nephilim?
A. This verse tells us the anti-Christ is the offspring of Satan in the same sense as the Messiah is the offspring of Eve. Obviously Jesus was not Eve’s biological son. But He was descended from her through Mary. One of the titles of the anti-Christ is “seed of the serpent”. It comes from this passage. In some way, whether it’s physically or spiritually or both, the anti-Christ is descended from Satan.
