And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his
This morning we continue our journey towards Knowing God More. Something happened between yesterday’s text (1:28) where God spoke to
man about being fruitful, multiplying, replenishing the earth, and
having dominion of every creature in the earth; and today’s text
(3:15). That something that happened was the ‘fall.’ Sin entered the
world through the actions of one man (Adam) and condemnation for all his descendants
came with it. God had to deal with the sin and would judge the serpent,
the woman and the man. He started off with the serpent (v.14). He said,
“Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle,
and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and
dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.” This is where we pick up
our text. Right here, wrapped up in the judgment, is a prophecy
about Jesus – the seed of the woman that would crush the head of the
serpent. It would be thousands of years before the Angel would speak to a young virgin named Mary about being with child. It would be thousands
of years before John would look at his cousin Jesus and say, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!” It would be thousands of years before Jesus would lay His
life down for the mistake made in the garden. But thousands of years
before it would happen, God spoke of this seed! Later on, John would
write (Rev 13:8) that this same Lamb (Jesus) was slain from the
foundation of the world.
So what does this mean to you today? A few things:
1. Our future is God’s past.
2. God has plans for us and for our seed (Jer 29:11).
3. God has made provisions for us, even for our mess-ups!
4. God placed the legacy of the apple tree inside of the apple seed and He
placed the legacy of man inside of Adam. Like we learned yesterday, Adam had to loose the seed for the legacy and the destiny to come to
5. Jesus came to crush the head of the serpent and to restore the Kingdom of God in the earth.
6. We are Born-Anew (Again) into His Kingdom and should now walk in His legacy.
7. Every Born-Anew (Again) believer is Born to Succeed! John said it this way, (1 John 5:4) “Every child of God can defeat the world, and our faith is what gives us this victory.”
Jesus was a Destined Seed and we are His Destined Seed. We should enjoy our freedom, liberty, dominion, and peace in Christ; but
we must never forget that we also have Destined Seed inside of us. We are Destined Seed full of more Destined Seed!
We are Destined for Success and Destined to sow
that Success into the lives of others.
Are you ready for walk in your Destiny?
Confession for this day: Lord God. You sent Your Son, my redeemer, Jesus Christ to crush the head of
the serpent. He was the seed of the woman and I am His seed. I am born
of Your Spirit, covered by the blood of Your Son, and an heir of Your
Kingdom. According to Your Word, I can defeat the world and receive
victory through faith. I walk by faith and not by sight. I am destined
for greatness and Born to Succeed!
In Jesus’ name.
