I will put enmity, between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. Gen 3:15
Imagine being told things you cannot imagine or truly understand. Perhaps the idea of seed was a foreign one to Adam and Eve. They had no children yet but the Creator talked of the woman’s seed and that of the serpent.
Some misguided in their doctrinal thoughts think the serpent impregnated the woman as does Adam soon after, thus she gives birth to twins – one the son of Adam and the other the son of Satan.
I do not accept this idea.
Sin conceives in the heart of people by desire.
Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. James 1:14-15
The seed of Satan is sin. The future seed of the woman is God.
Satan’s seed is death by sin. The woman (Mary) conceived by the Holy Spirit and gave birth to Life through Jesus.
The first couple had no idea of the future events or the concept of the Savior. The very word of God makes it clear on the father of Cain.
Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain. Gen 4:1
When she gave birth the word of God came back to her – “Between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed.
Eve said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” Gen 4:1
She misunderstood the word of God.
It is quite common for people to misunderstand the word of God. However, He is perfectly clear about salvation only through the blood of Jesus Christ. He is clear about sin bringing a penalty of death. He is clear on heaven and hell. He is clear that you have hope in Him today!
Do not let Satan trick you into thinking he will toss the foot off him. He is condemned already. Allow God’s grace to pull you out from underneath the Foot!
