the serpent in the Bible is not really a snake, but our "WILL"
There are many fewer metaphors then you think Sis.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Satan/Lucifer/Devil is a living being Yvonne. And deceiving is his theme.
Jesus is also a living being, the begotten Son of God. And truth is His theme.
""Jesus is our upgrade.......from animal to MAN:""
Jesus is not the name of an upgrade, He is the Son of God and always will be the Begotten one. We can be adopted as sons/daughters of God, but not begotten as Jesus is. Jesus is Begotten of/from God because God spoke it so, and His words became manifest. That is also why Jesus is called the word of God, because God's words became manifest and suddenly there's Jesus.
Adam and Eve also where created in this way, and we are there descendants.
Its really just that simple
And our job is to have faith that Jesus is the Son of God.
To bare your cross is to explain the truth to others, and take your persecution and rejection for doing so.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Don't let the Rabi's beguile the beautiful simplicity of it all Sister
