Conversing with The Serpent

My last post recounted the beginning of a story. We must understand the real reasons Lucifer had such an intense hatred for Eve.

He didn’t always look like the snake we know him to be today. I’m not sure The Serpent could have attracted Eve’s attention in that state. The Bible describes him as the most beautiful creature God had created. Until Eve, that is.

Lucifer been cast down from heaven due to his pride.
But he wasn’t cursed until he deceived Eve. GENESIS 3:1-6

Suddenly his outward appearance revealed his inward state:
The word ugly is an understatement.

And the serpent was the first to receive a curse.

So The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.” GENESIS 3:14-15
