“And 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
I often reference this particular verse in connection to several foundational doctrinal issues, the virgin birth for example ( i/e “her seed” ) hmmm a woman with the “seed”? Now I always thought she had the egg right? Anyway in serving the subject of this posting may I direct our attention to the “your seed” portion of the text where God is proclaiming to the serpent ( Lucifer ) that there will be a hostility ( enmity ) between the womans seed and his own. As very tempting as it may be to go off in a number of directions with this I’m hoping to leave it more as an interactive subject where others may impart their thoughts vs. simply imparting lots of my own.
However I will add a few verses made by Jesus to the Pharisees, does anyone suppose they may somehow connect to the statement God made to the serpent in Genesis 3:15?…may prove to be interesting…
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” John 8:44 NKJV
“But when He saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to His baptism, He said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” Matt 3:7 NKJV
( KJ renders as “generation of vipers” )
So….he has kids?
