For Christians who think the serpent in Genesis is supposed to be Satan, does Satan currently have legs?

Genesis 3:14 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:

Update:

Revelation suggests the serpent is not merely an animal, but in fact Satan.

(Revelation 20:2) He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

Update 2:

Revelation claims the serpent is Satan. Yet, Satan walks about on the earth, according to Job, and does not crawl upon his belly all the days of his life.

Job 1:7 “Where have you come from?” said the LORD to Satan. “From roaming through the earth,” he replied, “and from walking back and forth in it.”

    Yeah, no crap. Why did god curse all snakes because Satan used one of them as a puppet?

    The serpent was used like a ventriloquists dummy so God was speaking to the wicked spirit creature who is known as Satan the Devil, Satan means ''Resister'' and Devil means ''Slanderer,'' fitting descriptions for this evil creature.

    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.

    If you look at what it is to be eating from this moment on, "dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life" this gives us a key to the secrets of whom this is, and also what the dust is.

    To Adam, God said, "for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. "

    So, from this day onward, satan, a heavenly being of extremely high status, was now reduced in status, so to say crawling on his belly, thrown out of God's organization. His food now became the dust of the dead men he caused to die en masse from this time on. As Jesus called him, Lord of Flies, Lord of the dead in a sense. So we humans turn to dust when we die, and that is all the food satan gets to eat now, our dust. No more heavenly spiritual food at God's table.

    While he still had access to heaven, he surely didn't walk proudly among the heavenly host, rather, he slid on his belly, on the ground in his newfound debased condition.

    The woman mentioned here is no earthly woman. Satan's head shall be crushed by Christ soon, as satan bit Christ in his heal when he killed him on the cross.

    The ability to read does atheists no good when they cannot come to understand the message at all that comes out of the entirety of the holy scripture.

    In the book of Revelation satan will reveal himself to the world as a man.

    The prophet Isaiah speaks of this.

    (Isa 14:16) They that SEE THEE shall narrowly LOOK upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the MAN that made the earth to tremble, that did shake the kingdoms; (caps mine)

    Paul tells us:

    (2Thess 2:3) ..'that the MAN of sin be revealed, the son of perdition..

    v:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, SHEWING HIMSELF that he is God. (caps mine)

    During the tribulation satan will become a man in the form of the anti-Christ and will sit on the holy temple of God in Jerusalem deceiving the world that he is God.

    Satan reveals himself to man as a "angel of light" (2Cor 11:14) This is how he deceived Eve in the garden of Eden. When satan took on the form of a serpent --- this serpent wasn't some hideous looking creature. Eve would never have listened to him in the first place.

    Satan back then like he will do in the future will appear to man as a 'angel of light' probably as a respectable, charismatic and well dressed man !

    Thank God we know satan's fate where he will be tormented in fire and brimstone and finally destroyed in the lake of fire in the form of a MAN (Rev 19:20 & 20:10)

    Satan does not have a physical body. He is a spirit person and those who go to heaven have a spirit body. But we do see that snakes have a bad deal

  • Does anyone think that Jeremy Kyle is a hypocrite?

    Uhmmm..., I see that you know just some biblical passage, tell me a little bit, which religion ti has pulled out to kick in sit??

    But of course, there are no doubts, the biblical passage of Genesis, recitation against Satan when he sinning Eva, but out there, on that occasion, Satan was formed as a snake that spoke with Eva!

    In fact, on that occasion Satan, preferred to manifest as a snake, because he has power, the demons are perfect mutants, may take any human form, with or without the legs, or animals of various kind, or of aliens, those that NASA has said many times, but does not know, in reality who are these spiritual entities of alleged aliens.

    We see the scriptures: 2Corinthians 11:14-15. 14 There'is from wonder, because even Satan disguises itself as an angel of light. 15 It is therefore not what great if even his servants travestono by servants of justice; whose end shall be according to their works.

    2Thessalonians 2:9. The coming of that'wicked will take place for the'effective action of Satan, with every sort of mighty works, signs and wonders liars.

    Even if with the biblical passage that you put, you pull the hoe on foot? Job 1:7. The Lord asked Satan: "Where do you come from?". Then Satan answered the Lord: "From a round on earth, I travelled".

    I, the undersigned, has had experience with the demons, I repeat to say they can occur both by man, woman, child, animals, spacecrafts in the sky, aliens, and whatever in this world!

    Therefore, Satan and demons are spiritual beings, do not have a physical body, but can occur in any form whatsoever, which in reality is visible to the human eye, but you can not touch their bodies mutants!|

    Anyway, it is within your reach to speak of Satan, because you do not know who he is, and that power can have over every human being, I advise you to change topic, otherwise you will be the trolls section!?

    2 Corinthians 11:13-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

    13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

    Satan cannot do all things but he can be anything he wants to be except God... and that pisses him off..

    Just like the fig tree in Mark 11, the story is meant to show that God created everything. Anything which do not fit in with, comply with, promote, or resists the will of God will be punished and ultimately destroyed.

    There's no reason to suppose so. Most major denominations allow for a metaphorical interpretation of the Genesis account - because Biblical infallibility is based on what is *intended* to be taught. Genesis isn't a history book - it's a creation metaphor to teach that one's actions have lasting consequences.
