Question 352

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Please can you help with Genesis 3:15?

Genesis 3:15 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 heel.


The best way I can explain this verse is to put it in this way…

– I = The Lord

– Enmity = Warfare

– Thee = Satan and his army of demons

– Woman = The Nation of Israel

– Thy Seed = The Lost, Unsaved People

– Her Seed = The Saved, Born again Believers

– it = Jesus Christ

– BruiseThy Head and Thou shalt bruise his heel = This is in reference to constant battle there is between Satan, his army of demons, and his children (Lost,Unsaved) and The Lord Jesus Christ, his army of angels and his children (The saved, Believers).

In Conclusion:

Since Satan’s rebellion against God who convinced 1/3rd of all the angels to follow him in that rebellion – Isaiah 14:12 -14, Revelation 12:4,9, There has been a battle for the Truth of God’s Word (Doctrine) and The Souls of people (The Gospel).

Isaiah 14:12-14
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (13) For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Revelation 12:4,9 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.(9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Ever since the Garden of Eden where Satan told his first lie to Eve – Genesis 3:1 he has been lieing and decieving people from that point on – John 8:44

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
