According to Genesis 3:1, God created the serpent to be crafty and gave the serpent the ability to use the given intelligence. That means there should not be the disobedient intelligence that will act against God: how is it possible that serpent(intelligence) could act against God's self?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for the truth or validity of a particular doctrine or belief (aka Truth Questions), and questions asking Is X a Sin? are not a good fit for our site, due to their subjective nature, and the vast number of possible Christian opinions on such topics. See: We can't handle the truth" – curiousdannii, Peter Turner
Crafty is not necessarily bad.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16 (KJV)
It is the use of God-given talents against God's will that makes it sin.
God also has perfect foreknowledge, so He did know exactly what would occur.
