In Gen. 3:15 we are told, “And I will put enmity between and the woman and her seed and thy seed.” The important thing to note is that there are two lines of descent here. The seed or descendants of the serpent or Satan and the other, the descendants of Eve or the woman. The word “woman” is used later in scripture to describe those who compromise God’s Kingdom. Satan also has a kingdom for it says in Luke 11:18, “If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” The subjects of his kingdom are obviously the seed of the serpent or Satan. Jesus recognized the existence of this evil racial line when he blamed them all for the blood shed beginning with the slaying of Abel. Matt. 23:35.
There are two kingdoms then extant in the world today. The kingdom of good and the kingdom of evil. The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan. We know that believers in Christ or Christians comprise God’s kingdom but who are Satan’s subjects? Let us see if we can identify them from the scriptures. There is a people or race which the Bible speaks of in various places as “enemies” of God, “filthy dreamers,” “devils,” “serpents,” “enemies of all righteousness,” “princes of this world,” “those that are lost,” “vipers,” and “contrary to all men.”
The blood of the true Judahite who originally numbered little m ore than 4 0,000, had become thoroughly obliterated by the amalgamation Israel and Judah with the people of Ashdod, Moab, Ammon, Perizzites, Jebuzites, Hittites, Amorites, Amalekites and finally Idumeans. It was the Idumeans who took control of the country of Judea and furnished the Herodian line of rulers. All vestiges of the ancient religion of Israel had been destroyed except certain ceremonial rites which were still allowed by the Idumeans.
