“What is truth?”–Pontious Pilate
One of the most infamous questions and one that plagues everyone at some point in their life, and the inquisitor asked the One person whom all generations after would love to address it to, Jesus the Christ the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the World.
In equal zeal we should ask these questions to those who espouse to teach us “truth.” There are false teachers under every denomination, sect, and culture. The wolves within the body of Christ should alarm us; however, we often find ourselves tolerating them and entertaining them at times as part of our hum drum day, but this shouldn’t be so. If this is the case, we are indeed luke-warm in our walk, we can all agree that the body of Christ is already luke-warm.
When men come to your church and start teaching you “newly inspired” interpretations of the Bible, specifically eschatology in Douglas Hamp’s case, but also generally and most disturbingly in respects to new doctrine, we should all stand up at attention and demand they prove their “truth.” (but itching ears more than often win!)
Who is Douglas Hamp?
I was asked this by a concerned brother in the Lord who knows I escaped the clutches of Calvary Chapel “Movement.” My brother told me, he (Hamp), taught at Calvary Chapel College in Murrieta, he was assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa for six years. I instinctively thought, “there’s your sign-right there.” However, for the non familiar of the CC cult speakers it’s not as cut and dry. An explanation of “Who” Douglas Hamp is of importance, so I am obliging a friend and delving into the arena of CC false teachers yet again if only to provide my friend with information so that he can better warn his friends who are bringing him this “hot, new, revelation of end times stuff.”
The following bio is from a site called “SoundChristian” ironically many false teachers are listed with a (+) sign for being “Sound” so please Do Not take this quote as an endorsement of that site. I always link to where I get my info but that is never indicative of an endorsement.
|Douglas Hamp||Having a focused ministry on the end-times, he has extensively researched and written that for some time we have been witnessing the return of fallen angels in the form of aliens. Being a Hebrew scholar and expert on ancient languages, he suggests Daniel 2:43 predicts that demonic entities will crossbreed with humans in order to destroy the image of God in the last days, just as humans were corrupted in the days of Noah described in Genesis 6. He also says that demonic forces are preparing for a counterfeit rapture event by sending messages through “spirit guides” who are claiming the earth will soon go through a period of cataclysmic changes, including a “great evacuation.” This deception is meant to prepare people for a coming sudden disappearance of people that will be accomplished via thousands of UFOs. He is an author, researcher, lecturer and conference speaker. He offers more information at douglashamp.com.|
This latest book by Hamp is all the buzz. Here’s a book description from Amazon.com:
Just from this small excerpt/description the reader should note how heretical it is. Genesis 3:15 does NOT say, “the serpent will one day mix his seed with humanity as a counterfeit of the Messiah.” Here is the scripture in context:
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
Douglas Hamp has effectively (falsely) altered the entire bible and all it’s prophecies concerning the Return of Christ and the rise of the Anti-Christ based on Genesis 3:15 where God mentions, the serpent’s (Satan’s) seed. This reference entitles him to interpret the bible to mean that Satan’s offspring, i.e. the Nephilim that were present upon the earth at the “time of Noah” which caused God to resent creating man and thusly flood the earth saving only Noah’s family, are the same who will return as “Aliens” and create a hybrid man/Nephilim (ergo the Anti-Christ). It was man’s SIN upon the whole earth that God loathed and sought to destroy in the flood. It is the same SIN resonance and fever pitch that is plaguing today’s society as well, as in the days of Noah.
Easy enough summation of Douglas Hamp’s false teaching. It coincides with Chuck Missler’s heresy and LA Marzulli, David Ick, Tom Horn and many many others.
The catch to believing this false teaching is that you have to read the Book of Enoch. The book of Enoch is considered an apocryphal book. A non-canonized book that is extra-biblical and not inspired by the Holy Spirit.
It’s no wonder this new boy wonder came from Calvary Chapel. Don’t forget Chuck Smith Sr. believes in the Gap Theory of evolution. He began Calvary Chapel with the likes of Chuck Missler; a kabalist, mystic, military intelligence boy genius who believes we live in a hologram and Demons are Aliens who can jump through portals into our world. Missler also teaches that Satan has a seed and believes in trans humanism. Missler and his friend William Welty a New Age believer constructed the Blue Letter Bible online resource that has the Greek and Hebrew concordance to assist in twisting the bible to mean what they want it to mean. Missler is also a dear confidant of Timothy LaHaye. LaHaye was a friend of “Jesus” (re-incarnate) Reverend Sun Myung Moon, and creator of the Council for National Policy, the religious right wing military industrial complex lobbying front. Let’s not forgot Smith Sr’s relationship to Jesuit Retired General William Gerry (Jerry) Boykin. Many of the upper echelon, global elites, are tied to CC, yet CC apologist never draw the full connection, even when they are “warning” the flock of that very elk. Weird huh.
In a NUTshell:
This is what Douglas Hamp believes in:
“There we find that it is Hebrew word #2232 zera that was translated as seed in Genesis 3:15. And in this context it means “offspring” or “children”. In fact, we’ll take a look at it further down, but the Greek equivalent of this word used by Christ in reference to the Serpent’s “Seed” is word #4687 sperma. And yes if you’re wondering, it does indeed mean “male sperm”.
Can there now be any doubt as to what this “seed” is?
It’s obvious that the Serpent’s “seed” represents Satan’s “literal” descendants who live on earth until the prophecy in Genesis 3:15 is complete – i.e. when the head of the Serpent is crushed. They were planted on earth via Satan’s “sperm”.
Cain was Satan’s son.
And his descendants today are called “Kenites”.
You see the “fruit” Eve partook of wasn’t a big red juicy apple like the religionists try and tell us. Eve was sexually seduced by Satan. And the result of that was her bearing the wicked fruit of the Devil in her womb (2 Cor 11:2-3).” Source: The Serpent Seed>> In-Depth Analysis of Genesis 3:15 The Serpent Seed Doctrine
**Annotation** For a precise account of exactly what Hamp believes you must read (copy/print/save) his own words on the Serpent Seed Doctrine. Because YES he absolutely believes in the Serpent Seed Doctrine. Here is his article, his words, from his blog, that he removed but I located. (And I already have a hard copy should this archive disappear)
Here is an excerpt from that article: “The Genesis 3:15 prophecy speaks of two seeds: the seed of the woman (her seed) and the seed of Satan (your seed). Jewish and Christian interpreters were convinced that the reference to her seed found its culmination in Jesus the Messiah and we fully examined just how that was possible genetically. Because the fulfillment of “her seed” was the genetic mixing of the earthly (Mary) with the heavenly/divine (Holy Spirit) then it follows that the fulfillment of “your seed” will follow in like manner. Therefore, because the incarnation of the Messiah was the Mary’s seed plus the Holy Spirit (human seed + spiritual seed), the embodiment of the anti-Messiah ought to be a mingling of human seed plus Satan (who is opposed to the woman). We conclude therefore that the antichrist will genetically be the son of Satan.”
And this: “We conclude therefore that the little horn (Antichrist/Beast) will begin as a man and then become the genetic son of Satan. It is important to note that he will begin as a regular man: Though the Lord will use him to in part judge the world, he was not predestined to be the Antichrist but he will choose to become a hybrid () with Satan to fulfill his purposes.[vi] He will have free choice all the way until the Lord Jesus returns to destroy him. We know that he begins as a man from several clues in Scripture:”
This is junk science at best and completely demonic at worst. His site sources for his theory-ology is Tom Horn! Paranormal chaser, alien believer, con-artist, Tom Horn.
Hamp is a false teacher. In my opinion it’s easy to spot. I watched an entire “movie” done by Hamp’s friend Gonzo Shimura, called “Age of Deceit.” Hamp is in this “film.” Together they lay the foundation for believing that Satan’s seed/offspring are today’s current Aliens and that they are going to return as such and do what exactly I’m not totally sure, either the Aliens will “enlighten” us or kill us, either way “Aliens are real and they’re here to stay” -LA Marzulli. Remember the days when your mom and your pastor would tell you not believe in such lies, now the Pastor has a conference in his church to tell you that Aliens are Real! LA Marzulli is also a source in this film, as well as David Icke, Chuck Missler, and other Satanists who channel demons who give them the layout of the coming invasion. It’s sheer ridiculousness how far man can get from the truth when it’s staring them right in the face. I won’t embed the video but I’ll link to it here if you can manage to waste 2 and half hours of your life on the twisted theology these men have contrived than go ahead. I regret to inform you I had time to waste and watched it. In the film, Hamp states as has Chuck Missler, “Jesus was born of a woman and no father. The Holy Spirit had to provide the “Y” chromosome for Jesus.” Hence, the logic goes, the Anti-Christ has to come in like manner, his DNA has to be different than any other human. If you listen carefully by saying this about Satan and linking it to Jesus’ conception, Hamp and Missler are also saying something about Jesus. Jesus is an “Uberman,” in their opinion, he’s transhuman, he’s a super-being, like Clark Kent. When I heard Missler explain his theology, his doctrine, I instantly knew he was denying Christ and he is teaching another Christ, another gospel. It was just that easy for me. You have to accept his logic in order to accept his theology interpretation. His end-times theology interpretation is his doctrine. He uses extra-biblical sources to support his whacked out theories so if you haven’t read the book of Enoch and Jasher not to mention the books of Hebrew mystics than you’re not up to his level of intelligence and he won’t have a discussion with you. If you can’t decode the “intelligence” data provided in these heretical manuscripts and morph them to compliment the Bible than you’re a peon and can’t comprehend the plan of God. In the film, Age of Deceit, the author/producer, says affirmatively he believes these things. You have to hear it for yourself.
Where in the bible does Jesus say “beware of Aliens coming?” Where in the bible are we warned that Aliens are Demons? Where is it in the bible that says that the New Age Religion is going to be the ‘one world’ religion of the last days because everyone will want to do an evolutionary jump into the next stage of humanism? Where in the bible do you read about Portals and holograms? I don’t see it, but I do read things like, they come as ministers of light, false teachers will rise among you, beware lest you fall being seduced by DOCTRINES of demons. It appears more like these men who want to keep people on an endless stream of Alien juice, believing that “when aliens come on the scene,” that’s right, not if-but “WHEN” aliens come on the scene they will be demons. Why would a demon need to come as an Alien, when they can come as a pastor or a speaker or an author?
**UPDATE** Here are the video clips I wanted to present. What I had to do was snip out the parts of Douglas Hamp from the film, Age of Deceit, to show exactly what Hamp believes (his interpretation of doctrine) and then combine them into one video. There are key words to listen for: Recombinant DNA, Chimera, etc.
Here are two excerpts from Douglas Hamp’s book “Corrupting the Image.”
“The technology known as recombinant DNA in fact now makes it possible for a grown man or woman to be altered at the genetic level. If a non-human gene were introduced into the human genome then the person would no longer be fully human but would by definition become a hybrid. The ancient name for a creature that is composed of different kinds is known as a chimera and that is also the name given to hybrid creatures in a previous [study] such as the spider goat and the green glowing pigs….
Recombinant DNA is “hybrid DNA that has been created from more than one source. The basic procedure is where a DNA strand is opened up and then a gene from another organism is inserted, making a new strand of DNA. The RNA replicates the new strand and it is passed into the entire system. “When recombinant DNA is then further altered or changed to host additional strands of DNA, the molecule formed is referred to as a “chimeric” DNA molecule, with reference to the mythological chimera that consisted as a composite of several animals.” By means of recombinant DNA, Satan may be able to convince humanity to insert demonic genes, perceived as desirable, into the human genome. The genetic composition of the person, therefore, would result in that person becoming a chimera.
Using recombinant DNA, a fully mature man could inject himself with the selected gene or genes of another species. The process, which is really just a matter of copying and pasting, is explained by T. Wakayama et al. in the July 1998 issue of Nature:
In the late 70’s, Dr. Stan Cohen (Stanford) studying antibiotic resistance plasmids in E coli, and Dr. Herb Boyer (UCSF) studying restrictive enzymes […] realized that they could use restriction enzymes to cut both plasmid DNA as well as DNA containing a gene of interest, and combine the DNA’s so that the “sticky ends” of each DNA could be joined, or “spliced,” to make a recombinant DNA (i.e. bacteria human).
Therefore, we can see how a man with access to technology and to Satan’s seed could then merely inject it into his DNA; then once inserted his own RNA would copy the new strands with the foreign gene(s) and it would spread throughout his entire system. Once this process of replication was complete the man would no longer be a mere human; he would in essence be a chimera, a hybrid: he would be a beast! “

More discombobulated theology here:
“The final proof that the toes/horns/kings are demons comes from Revelation 17:12, which we have already considered as proof that the ten kings are equal to the horns. However, if we zoom in just a bit we notice something important; the ten horns “are ten kings” (deka basileis eisin […] which “have received no kingdom yet.” John was told that there are kings (current to his day) that do not yet have a kingdom. However, these same kings (alive in John’s day) will receive their kingdoms when the Beast rises to power. It has been nearly two thousand years since John received the Revelation from Jesus on the island of Patmos. What human kings have been alive for two thousand years? Clearly the answer is none! Therefore, the only option left are the kings that do not die but continue—demons do not physically die and therefore the ten kings were present back in John’s day, had no kingdom but will receive the kingdom when the Beast comes, and so we conclude that the kings are necessarily demonic kings. We known that the understanding of “are kings”, signifying that they were alive in John’s day, must be right because Jesus used the same grammatical argument against the Sadducees to prove the resurrection: “I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living” (Matthew 22:23).
Thus we see that in the last days, rulers of this dark age (Ephesians 6:12) will mingle their seed with humans just as they did in the days of Noah and also when the children of Israel went into the Promised Land. So, just as Jesus predicted, the days of His return would be like the days of Noah. The sons of God took women and the fruit of their union was the Nephilim. So too the last days will be marked by the coming of these Nephilim. In fact we see that these days have already begun to be fulfilled and so our Lord’s return cannot be far away.” Source: Ibid, pages 179-180.
**The following excerpt is taken from Douglas Hamp’s blog, article entitled, “The Genetics of Satan’s Seed and the Mark of the Beast” November 10,2011**
The Genesis 3:15 prophecy speaks of two seeds: the seed of the woman (her seed) and the seed of Satan (your seed). Jewish and Christian interpreters were convinced that the reference to her seed found its culmination in Jesus the Messiah and we fully examined just how that was possible genetically. Because the fulfillment of “her seed” was the genetic mixing of the earthly (Mary) with the heavenly/divine (Holy Spirit) then it follows that the fulfillment of “your seed” will follow in like manner. Therefore, because the incarnation of the Messiah was the Mary’s seed plus the Holy Spirit (human seed + spiritual seed), the embodiment of the anti-Messiah ought to be a mingling of human seed plus Satan (who is opposed to the woman). We conclude therefore that the antichrist will genetically be the son of Satan.
How could that be possible? We recall that Adam and Eve were made in God’s image and emitted light like a garment. The image was tainted at the Fall and they lost the light garments. God promised a redeemer to restore the Image and restore the light garments. The Messiah mixed genetically with humanity to rescue us and upon resurrection we get our new bodies with the image restored. However, only those who follow Jesus (by ‘dying to self’) will receive the restored Image.
Concurrently, Satan attempted to destroy the image genetically with the Douglas Hampboth before the flood and after the flood (the sons of God returned). Daniel 2:43 prophesied of a mixing of the seed (distortion of the image). We have learned that the alien”(demonic) abductees report their seed being harvested and that the “ ” (demons) are creating a hybrid race between them and us. All the while they (demons) are warning of impending cataclysms coming upon the world and are purporting that they will raise up a super human leader in our time of need. Lastly, we saw that the Transhumanist movement is seeking to improve man by way of changing his genetic code and via recombinant DNA it is possible to alter an adult individual at the most fundamental level.

 N4TM Commentary: There is much more to this guy’s false teachings. Frankly I don’t see that anyone cares so I’ll end with this because I ‘knew’ it was coming from a demonic source but I had too keep digging until I could pin point a specific origin. This may be the closest thing to its origination or just scratch the surface, but from here on out I am going to stop reading about all this because it’s so disturbing. More disturbing is so many willful souls pursuing this as “truth.”
Following excerpt under “History” on Wikipedia for Serpent Seed-click on and read full article to also read “Doctrine” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_seed#History
The Serpent Seed idea appears in a 9th-century book called Pirke De-Rabbi Eliezer. Rabbi David Max Eichhorn, in his book Cain: Son of the Serpent, traces the idea back through early Jewish Midrashic texts and identifies many rabbis who taught that Cain was the son of the union between the serpent and Eve. Some Kabbalist rabbis also believe that Cain and Abel were of a different genetic background than Seth. This is known among Kabbalists as “The Theory of Origins“. The theory teaches that God created two “Adams”(Adam means MAN in Hebrew). To one he gave a soul and to the other he did not give a soul. The one without a soul is the creature known in Christianity as the serpent. The Kabbalists call the serpent Nahash (meaning serpent in Hebrew). This is recorded in the Zohar:
“Two beings [Adam and Nachash] had intercourse with Eve, and she conceived from both and bore two children. Each followed one of the male parents, and their spirits parted, one to this side and one to the other, and similarly their characters. On the side of Cain are all the haunts of the evil species; from the side of Abel comes a more merciful class, yet not wholly beneficial — good wine mixed with bad.”(Zohar 136)
In The Scofield Study Bible Scofield says, “The serpent, in his Edenic form, is not to be thought of as a writhing reptile. That is the effect of the curse (Gen. 3:14). The creature which lent itself to Satan may well have been the most beautiful as it was the most “subtle” of creatures less than man”. Scofield’s notes are silent as to the idea of Cain being the serpent’s seed, however in Genesis 6:2 his notes claimed that while it was an “error” to believe that the offspring mentioned were the product of supernatural unions, it was instead the intermarriage of the “godly line of Seth” with the “godless line of Cain” being referred to. Advocates suggest that modern Christian translations of the Old Testament reduce emphasis on this concept, which they believe indicated the serpent had been an upright, human-like creature.
The foundational scripture for the serpent’s seed doctrine appears in Genesis 3:15, which in the King James Version states “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Advocates interpret this literally to mean that an offspring of the Serpent via Eve would eventually lose in a mortal conflict with one of “her seed”. Eve’s son by Adam would have presumably been called “Adam’s seed” so it has been suggested, since a woman does not naturally produce seed, that “her seed” is the first prophesy of an eventual human messiah produced by means of a virgin birth. Adherents believe this sets up the serpent’s seed as an antitype to Jesus Christ.
Advocates also point out that in Genesis 4:1-2 it is mentioned only once that Adam “knew” his wife, yet twice it is mentioned that she “bare” sons (see, heteropaternal superfecundation). Advocates also believe an unmentioned act of infidelity is implied by reproductive and marital curses placed on Eve in Genesis 3:16, that otherwise seem inappropriate to merely eating a forbidden fruit. St. Paul seems to suggest as much in 2 Corinthians 11:2-3, where he may have implied that Eve was not a chaste virgin at the time Adam first had relations with her: “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted…”
In the New Testament epistle of 1 John, ch. 3 v. xii it also states, “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother.” John also recorded in his gospel (8:44) that Christ said, “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.” These passages, if taken literally as they are by advocates, seem to suggest that the New Testament writers believed that Cain, the first murderer, was indeed the serpent’s seed.
The doctrine that Eve mated with the serpent, or with Satan, to produce Cain, has been taught in various forms for thousands of years, and it finds its earliest expression in Gnostic writings (e.g., the Gospel of Philip) and especially in Manichaean doctrines; however, it was soundly rejected by mainstream Christian theologians such as Irenaeus  in the 2nd century, and St. Augustine in the 4th century.
More recent variants are central to the beliefs of Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit Predestinarian Baptists founded by Daniel Parker. Other variations occur in the Christian Identity movement. Some of these groups appear to use the doctrine as a rationalization for racist beliefs. One of the largest, but non-denominational, groups that believe in a form of the serpent seed doctrine are the followers of Branhamism who are documented to number over 1,500,000.
