This Bible Study was originally written by Roger Christopherson & published at http://www.theseason.org/  

This is part 3 of 12 parts in our American Wisdom Series edited version of:  "Mystery Babylon"
"In this part we'll talk about 'The Kenites' who are building this city"

 

Understanding who the Kenites are, and identifying them is the important part in understanding the "Key of David." 

The book of Revelation chapters two and three discussed seven churches that will exist in the end times. Of these seven churches, only two had the "Key of David", and could identify the "blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan".

Those two churches are the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia. They know who the Kenites are, and God blesses them for their understanding.

Before we look at the results of Eve's sin, we must understand what happened in the Garden of Eden, to cause this sin to come about.

Genesis 3:1, 2, 3 "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan, as the serpent] said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, `Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden'? " [1] "And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the Garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, `Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.' " [2, 3]

The serpent and the trees represent men, and the reference to "beast" also includes men, in fact God called Himself the Evergreen tree, or fir tree in Ezekiel 31:8. Satan had many titles as we read in Revelation 20:2; "And He laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan," so Satan is the person called the serpent here in Genesis 3 because he was more subtle than any other form of mankind. He was created in the perfect pattern, full of wisdom and understanding as we shall cover in our study later.

When Satan asked the question to Eve, "Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?" He was not asking the question for the sake of inquiring, but to draw her attention to the matter, like the questions asked by a slick car salesman. The purpose of the question is to break down the resistance of the client so they will buy the goods. The key to overcoming the mental barrier of a person is by telling a series of half truths so they will accept what you say, where by twisting their mind so that they will go along with what they are trying to sell to them.

Satan's quotation of God, "Ye shall not eat of every tree of the Garden?" is stated in the form of a lie from what God actually stated in Genesis 2:16, 17. The exception to "every tree" was, "...but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat." This was Satan's first utterance of Scripture, and it shows from the start his opposition to God's Word. God's Word from the first earth age sentenced Satan to death, and that is why only he is called the "son of perdition.

Satan took God's Word "Thou shalt surly die", and in the confusion of twisting the Word of God, Satan states "lest ye die". By the way, are we talking about apple trees here, and apples as the fruit of Eve's sin? No, we are talking about the man Satan, and the woman Eve. The fruit that comes from the union of man and women are not apples, but children. Paul referred to this seduction of Eve in II Corinthians 11:3; "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his suability, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." In other words stay within the Word of God.

The word "beguiled" in the Greek is # 1818; "exapatao, from #1537 and #538, to seduce wholly, to beguile" and of course this is in reference to sexual union. The point Paul is making is that Christians do not lose their "virginity" as Eve did, by being wholly seduced by the serpent [Satan].

Genesis 3:6 "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat."


Are we talking about apple trees and apples here? Don't be 

silly; this is talking about a man deceiving a woman into 

sexual relations, and her husband taking part with her also.

The seed from any sexual union bares babies, not apples. Once you get over this traditional nonsense of apples, then you can start to understand who the Kenites are, where they came from and what their purpose in the Scriptures is.

We see the first prophecy concerning the coming of the

Messiah and His sacrificial offering made by his death

on the cross.

By the sexual act of Satan and then with Adam, Eve conceived two seeds and produced twins; Cain’s father was Satan, and Abel’s father was Adam.

This was the sin in the Garden of Eden.

Follow along with your, Strong's Concordance with numbers and the Smiths Bible Dictionary. Look up the word. "Kenite", # 7014; "Qayin, kah'-yin; (the same as #7013, with a play on #7017); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Pal. and of an Oriental tribe, Kenite(s)." Lets go to #7017; "Qiyniy, (I Chronicles 2:55 ), Kee-nee'; Patron, from #7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:-Kenite."

The name, "Kenite" is from the family "of the first child, and whose offspring were oriental", and we know from Genesis 4:1 that this first child was Cain. "And Adam knew Eve his wife: and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord." Eve was in a period of innocence here; and in the Hebrew text it states; "ish eth Jehovah". This literal version translates, "With the help of Jehovah".

Genesis 4:2 "And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground."

It's strange that Cain would draw the duties which Adam was created for. The word "again" as stated here, in the Hebrew text was "Yacaph", #3254 in the Strong's Hebrew Dictionary; "to continue to conceive, to conceive again, to do the same thing." So if Eve had just bare Cain, and she continued to conceive again, to do the same thing, she had another child. She had twins. These two children are not identical twins that Eve conceived, because they had two different fathers; as we see from Genesis 3:15. Identical twins are not born from the same bag of water in the mother, but they are paternal twins, born in separate bags of water, with two different fathers.

These twins were conceived with two separate conceptions, and there is no great mystery about these conceptions. So we see then that Eve continued in labor, and had her twins. Cain's father was the man Satan, and Abel's father was Adam. These two boys grew up and when they reached the time for their first offering to God, Cain brought the first fruits of his ground, and Abel brought the first fruits of his flock. God accepted Abel's offering to the Lord, but God refused Cain's offering.

Genesis 4:7 "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him."

So what this is saying from the Hebrew text is; "If you were honest, I would accept your offering." So where did Cain get his anger, sin and dishonesty? It came from his father Satan.

Genesis 4:8, 9 "And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."  [8] "And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother?" And he said, "I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?" "[9]

Cain knew exactly what happened to Abel, because he slew him. Cain lied to God, which is another trait he received from his father Satan. The Lord knew what happened to Abel. Jesus even talked about what happened to Abel when He was confronted by the "Kenite" scribes and Pharisees of His day.

John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

"Ye" [to the Kenite scribes and Pharisees], are from your father the Devil. Satan is the devil, and was playing the role of the serpent when he deceived Eve and she became pregnant. Who was "a murderer from the beginning"? We just read that Cain was the first murderer when he killed Abel. Jesus called these Kenites exactly what they were. He wasn’t afraid of them.

We know that Jesus was speaking of Cain we just read about in Genesis 4:8, 9. Where did Cain get all this corruptness? It began with Cain's father Satan, Jesus knew it and spoke about it, "When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of it [lies]". The simplicity of Jesus Christ's teaching and His Word is foolishness to many religious leaders today. 

As we see in Matthew 13:13 , it is not intended for their ears, and they are totally blind to God's Word. Jesus said, "because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand."

Matthew 13:14, 15 "And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:" [14] "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." [15]

These Kenites are the people that God does not intend to offer His salvation to in this earth age. If they do hear and confess though, God will save them. Though it sounds like a contradiction; it is not.

In the churches today the Kenites have entered and so distorted the Word of God with fairy tales and false teaching that God's people don't even know they have to be on guard against these Kenites. 

Confusion in the church is at an all time high, as many church leaders actually believe that God respects sodomites. 

The religious world is being turned upside down. Godless deception is everywhere, and most Christians are blind and can't see through all the lies. Many in innocence even take the life of their unborn, and think that the little soul's within them is just a mass of matter.

They listened to Satan's lies, and they believe them, just as Eve did.

.

However you must understand that everything that is happening is in the plan of God, and God is using these Kenites, sons of Satan through Cain to, test His children.

Most professing Christians will be deceived when Satan 
arrives on
earth for the great tribulation
for they will not expect that war of the end times to be a war of words and great deception
.

The battle in our life time will be when Satan arrives here on earth.

 

This battle is fought with words and with his twisted ideas, lies and half truths.

He will be filled with supernatural powers and the ability to out think us human beings. 

This is why we are told to allow the Holy Spirit to do the talking through us.

Mark 13:11 "But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost [Spirit]."

Jesus faced these Kenites again in Matthew 23 when he told them of the eight woes. The woes are the exact opposite of the eight blessings that Jesus gave in the "sermon on the mound" in Matthew 5. At the end of giving the eight woes, Jesus called these scribes and Pharisees, "Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?" (Matthew 23:33)

Live Link to-   The Sermon on the Mount including the Beatitudes

The first prophesy concerning the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ was given back in Genesis 3:15.

Let’s review it.

Genesis 3:15 "And I [God] will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve], and between thy seed [the Kenites] and her Seed [Jesus the Christ]; It [Jesus] shall bruise thy [Satan's] head, and thou [Satan] shalt bruise His [Christ's] heel."

Eve's Seed is Jesus Christ, Luke 3:23-38 and Matthew 1:1-16 will trace Jesus lineage all the way back to Adam, through Seth. Not Abel who Cain murdered or Cain who was Satan's son.

Satan's seed are his children to the last generation, and they are called Kenites, sons of Cain. Satan's offspring are born from a sexual union between Eve and Satan [the serpent, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil from Genesis 3]. 

So God is telling us that He will put trouble between Eve's children through Seth, and Satan's offspring through Cain. They are called the Kenites.

It's Jesus that "shall bruise the head" of Satan, at Christ's return at the Second Advent, while it was Satan's children [the Kenites], not Judah , that bruised Jesus' heel at the cross of Calvary during his crucifixion. Spikes were driven through Jesus' heel, as he hung on the cross to pay the full price for our sins, once and for all.

Most religious leaders acknowledge that Genesis 3:15 is talking about the death of Jesus Christ, and when He was nailed to the cross for our sins. They recognize that "seed" is referring to the children of the woman "Eve". 

Yet they want to spiritualize everything else away that happened in the Garden of Eden between Eve and the two men, Adam, and Satan.

The "seed" in the Hebrew text is called "zirmah", and in the Greek it is "sperma". In our English we call this zirmah, "sperm", for in Strong's Hebrew dictionary #2233, "Posterity, carnally, child, fruitful". It can't be any clearer; the seed of Satan's posterity are the Kenites, while Adam's posterity is in Christ, through the pure bloodline of Seth, Adam's second son.

As Jesus went around the country side teaching, he gave his lessons in Parables. Understanding who these Kenites are, how and where they came from is essential in understanding the parables of Christ. 

Jesus even gave us the key to understand His parables in Matthew 13:10-12.

Matthew 13:10 "And the disciples came, and said unto Him, "Why speakest Thou into them in parables?"

Jesus disciples turned to Jesus and asked Him, "Why are you speaking in parables", in riddles that these people can not understand.

Matthew 13:11 "He answered and said unto them, "Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given."

A mystery is something that is unknown. The answer may be in plain sight, yet if you cannot put all the details together, by taking all the clues and come to an understanding of the facts, you still wont know the answer to the mystery. There are things dealing with the kingdom of heaven that seem foolish to most mankind, and will always remain hidden, unless the Spirit of the Living God reveals them. We see today many things are mysteries, and mankind is going to great lengths to understand the past, when all the time it is written in His Word. However those truths simply will not be understood because God has blinded their eyes for their own protection.

If a person understood, and was tried and tested by Satan in his role as the false-christ and his system, which is coming shortly, they would not have the ability to stand against Satan. It may be because of the lack of will power or faith; But the elect will be required to completely turn them selves over to the Holy Spirit for their protection.

Matthew 13:12 "For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath."

The subject here is reveling God’s truth to others.

If a truth is given to you, you can sow it and plant that truth in some other person's mind,

or just sit on it.

Jesus is telling us if His Spirit opens a truth to us and we sit on it, we will not only lose the understanding of that truth, but other things from His Word, as well.

Matthew 13:13 , 14, 15 "Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand." [13] "And in them is this fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, `By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:" [14] "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.' "[15]

Jesus Christ gave many parables to the multitudes because the Kenites followed after Christ to trip Him up. Yet all the time they missed the entire teaching. He spoke of them continually as the tares, and they just never understood that Jesus was talking about them. He told how the farmer sowed the wheat in his field, and after the seed was in the ground, along came the enemy and sowed the tares in the same field. So who are these enemies that are out to destroy truth, cause confusion, and destroy the children of God?

These are the Kenites.

[Old McAdam planted good seed in the garden, when along came Satan to sow some tares.] Matthew 13:25
[Now, 6000 years later! Locusts, locusts everywhere. Tell ye your children of it. Let your children tell their children] .Joel 1:3

Matthew 13:24, 25 "Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field;" [24] "But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way." [25]

What are tares:
Only a trained person can distinguish the toxic tares from true wheat
while they are growing together in the field. However,
at harvest time the two are easily distinguishable.

The bearded darnel (Lolium temulentum) is a poisonous grass, almost indistinguishable from wheat while the two are only in blade, but which can be separated without difficulty when they come into ear (cp. mat. 13:29, 20). ("Davis Bible Dictionary", Baker Book House, pg. 759.)
Live Link to-
Parables of the Sower and Tares

To make the wheat grain fit for grinding, each grain of (Lolium temulentum) must be removed, or the bread is bitter and poisonous."

When parables were given, those who listened will remember the story, but fail to understand it’s hidden meaning. The man that owned the field sowed the good seed, and when he was resting, his enemy came to sow bad seed to destroy his crop. 

Remember from Genesis 3:15, the word given in the text for "seed" was sperm, we’re not talking about grain in this parable; This refers to children. The understanding of this parable is hidden to those who were listening.

When the servants want to go and gather the tares before the wheat is ripe, the owner tells them not to. The reason is that you might destroy some good wheat when you pull up the tares. That separation will be done later by those that harvest the crop. So many like the Disciples of Christ want to understand the lesson that Jesus was giving here.

Matthew 13:34 , 35 "All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and with out a parable spake He not unto them:" [34] "That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, saying, "I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world." [35]

Jesus did exactly as the prophets of old said that He would do, and this is how those secrets from the start of this earth age of flesh man were kept. Satan used his sons, the Kenites who continually tried to overthrow the plan of God, and it is impossible for them to succeed. Sure they will mess up millions of Christian's lives and lead them to the the false-christ Satan, but to the elect that have these truths planted in their minds, they will not be deceived. Ephesians 1:4 They made their stand in that first earth age, and for their stand, they were judged at that time and found to be without blame, and will be here in this earth age to make that stand again. tells us that the elect earned that right before the foundation of this earth age.

Matthew 13:36 "Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, "Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field."

Jesus is not teaching the crowd here, but in the house

He is talking only to His disciples.

They want to know exactly what the parable of the tares is all about.

Jesus is going to explain it in detail, yet even today it flies over the head of most 

Christians.

Live Link to- "The Parable of the Sower" and "The Parable of the Tares" combined into one pamphlet.

Matthew 37, 38 "He answered and said unto them, "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of Man;" [37] "The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;" [38]

This good man had a good seed and He went out and sowed (created) that seed in a good field, well prepared. The "Son of man" within this Greek expression is, "God in the flesh"; for the Son of God, Jesus Christ sowed the good seed. Remember that in the parable seed was a grain of wheat, which represented a different seed, called "sperma", or the seed of man; a child.

The field that Jesus is talking about is the entire world, this earth age of flesh man. The good seed are the children of God's kingdom. It did not say that these were apple seeds, or any other fruit of trees; they were children of the kingdom. Many people get all messed up and can't tell the difference between apple seed and babies. The good seed are the children of Seth, and the bad seed are the children of Satan through Cain, called Kenites. Now He tells us exactly who the enemy is: "The enemy that sowed them is the devil; and the reapers are the angels."

It can't be that hard to understand, for everyone knows that Satan is the devil, and his children through Cain are called the Kenites. Jesus just told you that Satan is the enemy, the wicked one that plants his Kenites in the midst of the good seed, in their church houses and where all good Christians go. We are not to gather those Kenites, for many of them will come to know the truth, repent and come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. That’s why the separation had to happen after the field was ripe unto harvest. Jesus told us that if they repent as you have, they will be saved and have salvation just as it is offered to you. Yet the Kenites are the negative part of God's plan, and they will prepare the way for their father Satan, when he is cast out onto the earth [Revelation 12:7-9]. (by building the city of "Mystery Babylon") as per Satan's instructions!

Matthew 13:40, 41 "As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world." [40] "The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;" [41]

Gather and burn the tares first! This sure disproves the "Rapture Theory" doesn't it?

Live Link to-  The Rapture Theory

The true gathering of the Kenites will be after the Millennium age, when each soul will be tested after they know the truth. God the Father can read their minds and know the intent of their soul, and only He is able to judge the righteous and the wicked. That is the duty of the Creator, not the created creature. No one will slip into the kingdom of God accidentally for the intent of their thoughts and minds are completely known by God.

These Kenites received their first lasting infiltration into the tribes of Israel during the time of King Solomon. King Solomon received his instruction to build the temple, and information for the skilled labors, the metals workman and wood workers that was necessary to complete the job. Solomon used thousands of Kenite men from the land of Hemath. Most of these Kenite men and their families stayed and lived amongst the Israelites after the completion of the Temple and the kings houses. Solomon himself went into business with the king of Hemath, and within three generation the kings of Judah, Israel and Hamath [ Tyre ] their children intermarried with one another.

King Omri of Israel and King Earbaal of Hamath had their peace sealed with the marriage of Ahab and Jezebel, and through the son and daughter of Jezebel, Judah was brought under ties to the Kenites also to Jehosaphat's two children. By naming each of their children by the same names, confusion exists by many. They were not able to separate the Kenite lineage from those of Abraham.

By the time the House of Judah came out of Babylon after the captivity, the Kenites had completely taken over the priesthood. Of the more than 280 priests returning to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and the city, not one Levite priest was amongst them. Ezra 8:15 "And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi."

Ezra was leading this wagon train of over 43,000 people broken into twelve groups, and heading back to Jerusalem at King Cyrus' orders. The purpose was to rebuild the Temple and start the sacrifices to God as Moses had laid it out.

God said that the Levites were the only ones to stand before the altar of God to make the sacrifices. Yet when they were out on the trail Ezra finds that the entire religious order is made up of Nethinims.

Live Link to-   The Book of Ezra

The priesthood had been turned over to the Nethinims, these Oriental strangers given to service, and they would set their traditions and mixed to what would be taught in the Temple. Is it any wonder that these Kenite leaders within the temple of God wanted to kill Jesus from the start of His ministry. Jesus knew who these scribes were, and they know that Jesus was the very Son of God that would fulfill the sacrifice for the sins of many.

I Chronicles 2:55 "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez [ Jerusalem in its unclean state]; The Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab."

These same Kenites that had their identity hidden at the time of Christ, will also have their identity hidden in these end times, Jesus talked about them in both Revelation 2:9; and 3:9 as being "those that blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not but are the synagogue of Satan." My fellow Christian, you know them by what they say, and do. When they say something that goes against what the Word of God says, they are not of God. Sure they will be in the Christian church houses, but their traditions will go against the Word of God. This is why it is up to each of us to seal the truth from God's Word away in our minds so that we will not be deceived. If you want to believe a lie, God will allow you to, for it is up to you to study to show yourself approved unto God, 2 Timothy 2:15 a workman that need not to be ashamed; on that day when each of us will stand before him.
