Creater of Deception

John Collins01/14/2013Genesis 1:24-2:25 tells the story of the creation of mankind, how man was formed from the dust of the earth, and how woman was created so that the man would not be alone in life.  It is the basic story that is the fundamental basis for every story in the Bible, a love story between a man and his wife.

Since the dawn of time, this story has been paralleled with stories of deception.  While God's true love story is revealed time and again throughout the Bible, Satan creates his own version of the story, twisting it for deception.  From the worshippers of false gods in the ancient world to the worshippers of false prophets and false teachers in the modern world, Satan has confused the minds of people to forget this love story and how it applies to their lives.

When God created the earth and all its creatures, He waited until the earth was good for mankind to live in.  Mankind was given dominion over the earth, representing God's power over the universe.  Over every single creature, mankind was given the authority.  To the teachers of false religion, this part of the story is very good.  

False religion breeds oppression of women.  Worse, it is implemented with deception, insomuch that many times the women of the false religion are taught to enjoy their oppression without the ability to comprehend their situation.  

Pictures on the walls of ancient temples depict the oppression of women, as well as many of the historic writings.  Not only were worshippers of Baal against Yahweh, they bred followings that included human sacrifice (often female), mutilation, and more as part of their oppression of women.  While the worshippers of Yahweh were taught the love story of Adam and his wife, worshippers of Baal were trained to place women under submission and oppression.  Men and women alike are taught that the woman is the lesser form, when in reality, God's parallel between becoming one with His Bride and the story of Adam and Eve teaches us otherwise.

Ignoring the many derogatory comments about women by William Branham, and examining only the scriptural deception by the man we have now found to be a false prophet, we find that he was no different than the pagan priests worshipping Baal.  His teachings on women and the creation deviate from the scriptures in a subtle way, much like the serpent in the very story he was talking about.

Regarding women, William Branham taught:

In the garden of Eden there was two trees. One of them was the Tree of Life. The other was a tree of death. And man refused the Tree of Life and accepted the tree of death. And that's what the world's done today. It's--it's refused the Tree of Life, which is Christ, and has made a woman their god. She's American goddess. That sounds hard, and I'm stripping down the women. And I want to tell you. After all a woman... Let me burn up on this, and, men, you're coming next. Look, a woman is not even so low... She's not even a creation in God. She's a by-product. After God made the whole creation He took a piece off of a man and made a woman. She wasn't even considered in the original creation. Correctly. She become a helpmate to man. And through there she's supposed to live for that. But today men has turned around and made her a god.

Now, there is nothing can stoop like her, and she is designed so that she can be deceiving. And Satan is really working on her today, in these last days, because he is her designer. I can prove that now. To go right back at the beginning, who started to work on her, Adam or Satan, God or Satan? See, that's her designer. It's her chief weapon to throw man to her filth, being a pretty woman, she can sway a man any way she wants to. Brother, it ain't the bootleg joint down here that gets the man; it's the pretty woman walking down the street, twisting herself, half dressed. That's what takes... That's the deceiver right there. And she is deadly with it, absolutely deadly. You may question me about Satan being her designer, but that's the Truth. Satan designed her. He still does it.

We find that the very first chapter of the Bible teaches the exact opposite.  When God made mankind, they were formed in His image -- both male and female.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

Though Satan tries to deceive through cult leaders like William Branham, women are absolutely not the bi-product and are not designed by Satan.  Satan was in the original creation, formed in the image of God.  

Taking teachings from Kaballah, that deceived the early Christians, teachers like William Branham and white supremacist groups use the hidden mystery of the 'fruit' to their advantage by teaching that the original sin was 'sex.'  Many take this teaching a step further using the fundamental element of sin contained in this doctrine, teaching that sex itself is sin.  Branham was a huge proponent for this false teaching:

Now the world is to be repopulated, not by the original creation of God, like in the beginning, not by the original creation, but by sex desire. Now that takes care of "the beginning," doesn't it? In the beginning there was only one man and one woman, one male and one female; but when she crossed that line and brought this sin, now the world is to be repopulated again, by sex, not by creation; by sex. See where the woman is at now, now? But that's the way the world is populated today, through women.  That's the reason Jesus had to come through the woman, to bring it back to its original beginning again, without sex desire. He is virgin born.

Straying from the fundamental love story in the Bible, sex becomes their focus, and anything related to sexual desire or physical attraction between a man and a woman becomes sinful.  For this reason, we find women of Islam covered in dark veils and long, flowing dress during intense heat of the desert, as well as women who are taught to refuse modern comfort apparel.  They forget God's first command to the man and the woman:  "Be fruitful and multiply."  God wanted the man and woman to fill the earth with population of mankind.

The 'Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil' was created before the woman in Genesis 2, and God told Adam not to eat of that tree before the woman was even created.  When God planted a garden in Eden, he put the man into the garden to care for it.  but he did not want the man to care for it alone.  

God saw that the man was lonely, and said that it was not good for him to be alone.  He therefore put Adam to sleep and separated the female part of the creation from Adam, forming a woman from a rib taken from Adam's side.  While man was created from nothing more than dust from the earth, woman was created by nothing more than a rib.  God was the Creator, and able to create us from anything He chooses.

At the end of chapter 2, the writer of Genesis describes this as the very reason for marriage, and the very reason for sexual intercourse.  For this reason, the writer says, they become one flesh, unashamed.  

The highlight of the love story is when Eve is deceived by the serpent.  The serpent beguiled her, deceiving her into eating the fruit of the tree that God commanded her not to eat.  Eve had never heard a lie before, and when the serpent lied to her, she had no reason not to believe the false statement.  

Adam, out of compassion for his wife, and knowing that God said that anyone who eats from the tree would be put to death, stood as the intercessor between Eve and God.  Adam stood for his bride, like Jesus will stand before His Bride at the day of Judgement.  Adam knowingly took his stand for his wife, out of love and compassion.

But Branham twisted this love story from the precious story many knew into a devious story with motivation towards the oppression of women.  Branham taught that Eve deceived Adam.  He took the example we have for Christ and His Bride, and turned it around into a false doctrine:

There is nothing designed to be so deceitful, as a woman that's deceitful. There cannot be nothing else; there is nothing made to be that way. Also, there is nothing that can be so easily deceived as a woman. Now, the fall proves this statement to be true, the fall in the beginning.  he was not in the original beginning creation. She was in Adam, but not in a female sex, herself, at the beginning. She was the by-product made.  Now, there is nothing designed that can deceive, and be deceived, as easy as a woman. There is nothing designed or can stoop as low as a woman can. Think now. There is nothing designed, in all creation, that can stoop as low as a woman can. She can tear a man's heart to pieces easier than anything else there is in the world, is his wife. Let that nice little wife get to running around with some other man; look at that fellow sitting there with his children, the tears dropping out of his eyes. She is designed that way. She is designed to do this. There is no hog, no dog, or no other animal, designed like her or can stoop as low as she can stoop. Now, that is true. With regards to my sisters, I just want you to watch.

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Are we willing to continue in the ways of the pagan worshippers of Baal, with false doctrines that oppress women?  Are we willing to let a man pretend to be a prophet of God, while teaching contrary to the Bible?  Or are we willing to stand up for our Absolute, the Word of Truth?
