Question: I really like your article, it is a great study, I am still a bit “stuck”.. can you please explain me:…. Satan is a spirit, the god of this world, Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Going by this, my question is, how can a spirit have “seed” “sperm” to have a child and seduce Eve.? Satan did not have a body, he is spirit. I know Gen. 3:6 satan had sex with Eve…. How.. Satan is a spirit…. Please explain … Thank you Eugenia

Answer: Eugenia, thank you for the question.
I am not sure what article you are referring too, feel free to email me with the article name or link and I can address it on the next Q&A if you like. In either case, Satan and all of the angels; the good, bad and ugly all have a body. They have a spirit as we do which is housed in their spiritual body whereas our spirit is housed in our a flesh body. The spiritual body which is our true body is incorruptible which simply means they never get sick, old or die. 1 Corinthians 15:35-55 will help you with this.
There are many accounts in the scriptures where angels came and actually ate with flesh men, Genesis 19 is one example. We know Moses and the Israelites consumed Manna which is angels food in the wilderness.
So there is no great mystery here. Satan has a spiritual body and we know these bodies do have mass. Now Satan himself (absolute), his spiritual body is locked in Heaven. Christ told Satan to get behind Him and that is where Satan physically resides (Luke 4:8). However, Satan’s spirit is able to roam the earth, but his body, his absolute self is not present on earth nor will it be until Revelation 12:9 is a reality.
For those wondering what Eugenia is referring to with respect to Satan, sperm and Eve you may wish to read our study titled, “The Garden of Eden: The Origins of Satan’s Seed“.
Question: I am new to your website and have been studying with Shepherds Chapel for many years. I do not attend my local baptist church due to the fact I do not agree with their teachings of the fly away doctrine and not knowing who the Kenites are. Am I wrong in this decision? I need help in knowing what God expects of me.

Answer: Thank you for the question and welcome to our site Anthony.
I do understand the difficulty many people have with respect to Christian fellowship. Those who know the in-depth truths of the Word have difficulty with fellowship as most of the “Christian” churches of our time teach lies. So we find it difficult to bring ourselves to enter the doors of a church like that. Worse yet, if we donate to a church that teaches falsely we truly become partakers of their deeds and that will not sit well with our Father.
There is nothing wrong with fellowship, maybe there is a Bible study group you can look into if you do not feel comfortable with that church. Let’s face it, no one is ever going to agree 100% on scripture, but do not allow false teachings to lead you astray either especially the rapture.
I believe this is why the little book of Revelation 10:9 was sweet in John’s mouth. The truth is very sweet, but after it settles in our belly and we understand the in-depth truths it can be a bit bitter when we understand just how evil and deceived this world really is. I cannot tell you to go to that church or not, just pray to God about it. I can tell you that we do not attend any church in our area for the simple reason of false teaching.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
