And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15
Over the next month for the Christmas season, we will be taking a look at prophecies about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Tanakh or Old Testament. To start we don’t need to look much further than the first book of the Bible, Genesis.
After Satan corrupted the perfect world with sin and death, God told him he would be destroyed, his head would be crushed by his offspring. This prophecy came true when the virgin Mary gave birth to the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ. Because of this birth, humanity now has victory over Satan through Jesus Christ
The original Hebrew word for Enmity is “Ebah” this mean a deep hatred or hostility towards one another. When Satan corrupted mankind through Adam, God declared war on Satan through Jesus Christ. Satan inflicted his mass weapons of destruction including disease, illness, depression, anxiety, and even death.
But on the cross at Calvary, Jesus defeated all evil including sin and death. At that moment when he said “It is Finished” Satans head was crushed, the prophecy was completed. The enmity continues between Satan and Gods people. As he continues to wage war on the Christian Church, we need to remain strong and know Satan and his follower’s days are numbered. The serpents head has been crushed in Jesus name Amen!
