JESUS IN GENESIS – 37 days to go…

JESUS IN GENESIS

Genesis 3:15
And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.
HE WILL STRIKE YOUR HEAD,
and you will strike his heel.”

We know from the scriptures that the serpent was satan himself.  When all seemed lost.  GOD’S official ruler committed high treason.  On earth he had ceded authority to the powers of darkness by disobeying a simple command not to eat the said fruit.
Disobedience is always more costly than it seems. One small compromise can cause suffering and untold pain cascading to generations of disfavor.

In the midst of such doom and gloom, GOD announced Hope.  In the middle of what sounded like a tongue lash.   He promised the Seed of the woman would bruise the head of the serpent.

THE HEAD REPRESENTS LEADERSHIP.

satan has managed to lead the world down a path of degeneration and death.

Revelation 12:9
The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, WHO LEADS THE WHOLE WORLD ASTRAY.     He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

But the enemy’s headship will not stand that seed – Jesus!

Even more exciting is that those who believe in Him are now born of this kind of Seed.

THE OVERCOMING SEED

1 John 5:4
for EVERYONE BORN OF GOD OVERCOMES THE WORLD.    This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

THE INCORRUPTIBLE SEED

1 Peter 1:23
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

THE LORD JESUS OVERCAME THAT SERPENT AT THE CROSS.

Colossians 2:15
[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].

THE DEDICATED BELIEVERS ARE CONSTANTLY OVERCOMING satan

Revelation 12:11-12
And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb
and by their testimony.
And they did not love their lives so much
that they were afraid to die.
Therefore, rejoice, O heavens!
And you who live in the heavens, rejoice!
But terror will come on the earth and the sea,
for the devil has come down to you in great anger,
knowing that he has little time.”

THIS YOU CAN BE SURE OF:

The devil will not have the last word over your life, no matter how advanced his program of destruction may be…
The Seed within you is greater!
Yours is a great future in GOD

Enjoy your meditations and prayers
