The adversary's gender?
« on: August 03, 2015, 08:38:43 PM »
Where/how did the adversary's gender come from? Is there a scripture that identifies the enemy as a "he"? Been curious for awhile.
Other than translations referencing the enemy/adversary as "he" I find no verse. The adversary in my understanding is a created spirit entity.
To "father" something does not have to be a male...and originator for instance. Just as God is not a man.  :dontknow:
Mic 7:8  Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.

 :cloud9: @ Micah....He plants seed just like the Spirit, for one. For another, the sons of God came before God and Satan was among them. I'll leave the language particulars to EW, Ronin, or WW.

And on a personal note; ever hear one? They sound like a male dog trying to speak English, for lack of a better description. Had one's voice supernaturally imprinted on a commercial music tape once during a close call in battle of someone, but so many people wanted to hear it, it got lost in the shuffle. Made believers of several unsaved people in a hurry first, though. It's not just the sound, it's the pure evil behind it that goes thru your very soul.

@ Ed....too funny.... :winkgrin:

What about Genesis 6:2?
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

 I've heard the same,Bex....I think the reason they sound so,,is because Father is causing their tongue. to rot in their mouth and their

  teeth turn to gravel in their mouth..as they speak..thus the muffled loosed lip articulation of their speech apparatus.Part of His

rebuking.[they are very prideful of their tongue manipulation of the 'word of God' to deceive/accuse etc.]

Its an interesting question. I have no particular opinion on it. "Sons" can be a generic term, because all sisters in the Lord are also "sons of God" as a descriptive term for the overcomers in Christ. Jesus said that in the resurrection we will be like the angels, not giving or being given in marriage. Some folks believe that means angels have no gender, but i am not sure about that. It is interesting that the names we have are male names..... Michael, Gabriel...are there any others?

Raphael, I believe.
7"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Matthew 7:7 -8
