In Genesis 3:15, God said after Satan tempted and triumphed over Adam and Eve:
“I WILL PUT ENMITY BETWEEN SATAN’S SEED 👹 AND THE WOMAN’S SEED 👰.”
This is not a HORTICULTURIST speaking. This is not the GARDENER OF EDEN, threatening to get even with the Devil for conning him out of Paradise. After all, Satan had bamboozled him out of house and home. We really don’t know what ultimately happened to the GARDENER and his wife. We do know that mayhem and murder tore their lives into shreds. That was the beginning of a world of darkness, disease, and death.
To quote David from another occasion,
“IT WAS FRAMED AND FASHIONED IN THE LOWEST PARTS OF THE EARTH.”
No, this is a WAR GENERAL SPEAKING in Genesis 3:15! Do not let the SEEDS miss-direct you. This is not the planting of a garden, but rather A DECLARATION OF WAR! As President George W. Bush said to the hijackers of 9/11,
“YOU WILL BE HEARING FROM US!
NO COMPROMISE POSSIBLE
Genesis 3:15 is a one way street – God’s way or no way! This is not a PEACE ACCORD! This is not a PEACE TREATY! This is not a NEGOTIATING TABLE!
Satan’s goose is cooked! His fish 🐟 is fried! The issue is closed! He has nothing to say! He makes no response! Silence there and nothing more!
That does not mean he will not try TO NEGOTIATE WITH THE SEED OF THE 🚺
WOMAN. He never fights fair. There is always a method to His madness. He always has an angle which will be to His advantage and our eternal disadvantage!
In this constant, daily, no ceasefire WAR OF THE SEEDS, he will try to negotiate compromise. He comes to us and says things like,
“I DON’T CARE IF YOU GO TO CHURCH ⛪, BE RELIGIOUS IF YOU MUST, JUST DON ‘T BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY PREACH FROM THAT VERY QUESTIONABLE BLASTED BLACK BOOK!”
He knows full well that man shall not live by bread 🍞 alone, BUT BY EVERY EVERY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD! But he will seek to negotiate a settlement, so to speak. It is not really a settlement but a CERTAIN DEATH WARRANT!
Reminds me of the hunter who had his rifle fixed on a very large bear. The bear suddenly began to talk in a soft soothing voice. The beast said to the hunter,
“IT IS BETTER TO TALK THAN TO SHOOT, DON’T YOU THINK? WHAT IS IT THAT YOU REALLY WANT?”
The Hunter taken by the seductive voice said,
“WELL, IF YOU MUST KNOW, I WANT A FUR COAT, THAT IS WHAT I AM REALLY AFTER!”
The bear responded,
“THAT SOUNDS LIKE A NEGOTIABLE ISSUE. AND BY THE WAY, I WOULD LIKE A FULL STOMACH. LET’S SEE IF WE CAN REACH A SETTLEMENT.”
After a few minutes, the BEAR got up from the table with a full stomach, and the hunter inside him had his fur coat!
THE WAR OF INTENSE SEED HATRED
It will originate from ENMITY between two antithetical SEED LINES – The WOMAN’S SEED LINE and the DEVIL’S SEED LINE.
From the Virgin Mary come Christ and His followers, and from Satan come the antichrist and his followers.
This will all be rooted in:
-HOLY HATRED AND RIGHTEOUS ANGER IN ONE SEED LINE.
-UNHOLY HATRED AND UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER IN THE OTHER SEED LINE.
This will result in THE WAR OF THE SEEDS WHICH WILL GROW IN INTENSITY TOWARD THE END OF TIME!!!
The word ENMITY is not the following:
-I will put DIFFERENCE.
-I will put DISAGREEMENT.
-I will put DISPARITY.
-I will put DISTANCE.
-I will put DISHARMONY.
“YES, THERE ARE DIFFERENCES, BUT LET’S CONCENTRATE ON OUR LIKENESSES!”
“COME NOW, ON CERTAIN POINTS LET US AGREE TO DISAGREE AMICABLY!”
“EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE DISCREPANCIES, LET US NOT DESPAIR OF FINDING COMMON GROUND!”
“THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US MAY SEEM GREAT, BUT LET US BUILD BRIDGES AND NOT WALLS!”
“EVEN THOUGH THINGS SEEM DISCORDANT BETWEEN US, WE CAN STILL MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC BY FINDING THOSE HARMONIOUS NOTES TOGETHER!”
No 👎, nothing that BENIGN AND SOLVABLE! ENMITY MEANS:
-I will put LOATHING.
-I will put REVULSION.
-I will put DESPISING.
-I will put DETESTING.
-I will put DISDAINING.
-I will put ABHORING
-I will put HATING.
Nothing so tepid as the mother saying about her homosexual son,
“I DON’T AGREE WITH HIS LIFESTYLE, BUT HE WILL ALWAYS BE MY SON OF WHOM I AM VERY PROUD.”
That may be the heart of a mother, but not the SEED OF THE WOMAN!
ENMITY!!! Unprecedented and unparalleled and unresolvable! Insatiable and unquenchable! To the death! As Winston Churchill stated,
“NOTHING LESS THAN TOTAL VICTORY WILL DO!”
It is difficult to come to grips with DISDAIN AS A DIVINE PUT! God will PUT HATRED BETWEEN SEED LINES! After all, BY HIS OWN CLAIM, HE IS A GOD OF LOVE 💏!
BUT, this ANIMOSITY is not of human origin! This is not something so earthy as the HATFIELDS AND THE MCCOYS! NO, this is far above the earth 🌎, this is HOLY HEAVENLY HATRED! This is far below the earth, this is UNHOLY HELLISH HATRED PLACED BY GOD FOR HIS PERFECT PURPOSE! HATRED FROM TWO ETERNALLY HOSTILE WORLDS
I WILL PUT!!! THIS IS HATRED BY DIVINE DESIGN! EXACT AND SEVERE!
Think of it, without this animus, CHRIST WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PUT TO DEATH FOR OUR SINS! THE GENERATION OF VIPERS, SATAN’S SEED, THE PHARISEES AND SADDUCEES AND CHIEF PRIESTS WOULD NOT HAVE KILLED HIM!
It is powerfully striking and revealing that His murderers didn’t understand their own rage. Jesus prayed about them and for them in Luke 23:34,
“FATHER FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO.”
Arresting words! They did not understand their own homicidal frenzy against Him WHO WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD! How in the world do you reconcile their unspeakable badness against someone so good, beneficent and tenderhearted? You can’t, and neither could they! Deep down, they were dumb struck by their own outrageous killer instincts!
It all comes close to what the Apostle Paul said about his ENMITY and murderous rampage against Christians – the people of THE WAY:
“I THOUGHT WHAT I WAS DOING WAS LAUDABLE AND RIGHTEOUS, BUT IN ALL HONESTY, I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT GOT A HOLD OF ME!”
“NOW WHEN I REALLY THINK ABOUT IT, I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING!”
“FOR WHICH HE WAS TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE BUT WHICH HE COULD NOT HIMSELF FATHOM!”
Like what Jesus said about Judas Iscariot,
“IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER FOR HIM IF HE HAD NEVER BEEN BORN, (SO THAT HE WOULD NOT FACE THE FEROCIOUS WRATH THAT AWAITS HIM – MY ADDITION).”
I guess that in the case of Iscariot, the following question is resolved,
“TO BE OR NOT TO BE – THAT IS THE QUESTION.”
HE SHALL BRUISE YOUR HEAD
Go for THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE 🐍! Not the body, not the neck, not the tail! The serpent well may survive such peripheral wounds! The HEAD – THE PERFECT KILL!
Much as Peter aimed at decapitation of the soldier who ducked and only lost his ear. It was a near miss. The smashing of the SNAKE’S HEAD will not miss! God in Genesis 3:15 assures him and us of a HEAD WOUND THAT WILL BE THE END OF THE REPTILE FROM HELL FOREVER!
The snake 🐍 will never hiss again, the lion will never roar again, and the Prince of Darkness will never reign again! That day is soon coming when the HELL RAISER shall be thrown into Hell with his SEED forever!
But who is the “HE” THAT SHALL FOREVER END THE SERPENT’S REIGN OF TERROR?
Sounds like GOD HAS A CONTRACT HITMAN TO DO THE DEADLY DEED! The great hymn of the church identifies the “HE” –
“Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing,
We’re not the right man in our side,
The man of GOD’S OWN CHOOSING.
Dost ask who that may be,
CHRIST JESUS IT IS HE,
Lord Sabbaoth His name,
From age to age the same,
AND HE MUST WIN THE BATTLE!”
The rumor is out! It has already spread on the DARK WEB OF HADES! It is evident that the DEMONS FROM THE NETHER REGIONS are on to HIM! They know who HE is!
1. A pathetic fella lived near GADARA amidst the TOMBS. He was possessed by a legion of DEVILS. The guy was a demonic mess! And when he saw Jesus, the legion spoke through him and said in Mathew 8:29,
“What do you want with us, thou SON OF GOD, HAVE YOU COME TO TORMENT US BEFORE OUR TIME?”
They knew who HE was, and that the clock was ticking on death row, and their heads would soon roll! They were hip as to WHO THIS HEAD BASHER WAS! Hell has no secrets! The scuttlebutt was right, this is the ONE WHO WOULD SOON SWAT BEELZEBUB AND HIS FLIES!
Legion – Can you imagine 6000 demons infesting one man? And more than that, they all confessed with one voice that JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD. The very truth for which the Jewish leaders crucified Jesus, for HE HAD TOLD THEM HE WAS THE SON OF GOD!
Demons are much more spiritually savvy than people, than even hyper religious people! They know the Bible much better than humans do! They know GENESIS 3:15, and they knew that JESUS IS THE HEAD STOMPER – HAVE YOU COME TO CAUSE US PAIN BEFORE THE GRUESOME FINALE?
2. Poor man! He too was demon possessed, and was in the synagogue one day. When he saw Jesus, in Luke 4:34, he cried out,
“I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, HOLY ONE OF GOD!”
Jesus told him to SHUT UP, and then kicked the Devil out of him. The demon knew that JESUS WAS THE ONE, THE ONLY ONE, THE HOLY ONE OF GOD! THE ONE AND ONLY! THE HOLY TERROR TO THEIR UNHOLINESS! THEIR ONE AND ONLY NEMESIS! IF IT WASN’T FOR JESUS, THEY WOULDN’T HAVE A WORRY IN THE WORLD!
It all reminds me of CLYDE BARROW AND FRANK HAMMER of Bonnie and Clyde infamy.
He is the ONE! Clyde Barrow’s father, he knew that FRANK HAMMER WAS THE ONE! Hammer stopped by Pa Barrow’s gas station one day! Immediately he knew that FRANK was the ONE☝who would bring his son to deadly justice! But not before he tried to convince Hammer that His son was NOT BAD SEED – CERTAINLY NOT DEMON SEED! It is just too awful to face! You all KNOW the rest of the story!
SO YOU WILL BRUISE MY HEAD WILL YOU!
SATAN would never forget those ominous words. He knew it was a PROMISE and not a THREAT!
So then, Satan says to himself,
“We will see WHOSE HEAD GETS BRUISED!”
So Satan makes sure that HIS SEED 👹 DOES THE FOLLOWING:
1. Rip Jesus’ back to shreds with the Roman lash, 39 swipes that tear Jesus’ back into raw bloody pulp.
2. Pull Jesus beard out of His cheeks in bloody clumps that rendered Jesus unrecognizable!
3. But for good measure, make a CROWN OF THORNS, AND JAM IT DOWN INTO JESUS’ FOREHEAD AND SKULL! TAKE THAT! WE’LL SEE WHO BRUISES WHOSE HEAD.
4. And finally, NAIL HIS HANDS AND FEET TO A CROSS! BRUISE HIS HEAL WILL I? I WILL DOUBLE THE HEAL DEAL, TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! DOUBLE MY PLEASURE! MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK!
He thought for sure that he had done Jesus in before Jesus could do him in! All of the BRUISES HAVE FALLEN ON JESUS AND NONE ON HIM!
SATAN 100 % – JESUS 0 %!
THE ONE CRY THAT PIERCED SATAN’S EARDRUMS
But then something unimaginably horrifying happened before Satan’s bloody eyes. Everything had gone exactly as planned! The SEED OF THE WOMAN WAS DYING IN UNUTTERABLE AGONY.
And to add to his sinister glee, Jesus on the cross is flanked by two of SATAN’S SEEDS – THIEVES ONE OF WHOM IS RAILING ON JESUS WITH THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WHO ARE GAMBLING FOR HIS GARMENTS! A picture for hellish satisfaction indeed! The whole scene was SATAN’S DEVILISH FIENDISH DELIGHT!
Suddenly a totally unexpected cry went forth that didn’t at all fit the script that Satan had written! The soldiers, the mob, and one of the thieves on a cross had been exhaling and breathing forth salacious vapors that putrified the air! Jesus also had been uttering some words that made no sense to mocking rabble rousers! Everything was taking place as Satan the drama director could have hoped for!
But a DEEPLY TROUBLING CRY came forth from one of the thieves who was being crucified next to Jesus. Luke 23:42,
“JESUS REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR 👑 KINGDOM!”
“Oh hell,” Satan says, “There is that name again – JESUS! I thought we had silenced that name forever. And KINGDOM? How dare he say that The Kingdom belongs to Jesus! Mine is THE KINGDOM, not His!”
Before Satan could catch his foul breath, and before his very eyes, he watched the TRANSMIGRATION OF A SINNER FROM A CERTAIN HELL TO AN IMPOSSIBLE HEAVEN. Hell’s door was locked to the contrite thief, and HEAVEN’S DOOR WAS OPENED TO HIM – “TODAY YOU SHALL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE.” Horrifying to see Satan’s seed transformed into the WOMAN’S SEED!
“THE CROOK BECAME A CHRISTIAN, THE SINNER BECAME A SAINT, A DEMONIC SEED BECAME A DIVINE SEED, A HELLIAN BECAME A HEAVENLIAN!”
There was nothing Satan could do:
“THE BLOODY CROSS OF CHRIST BECAME THE KEY 🔑 THAT OPENS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN TO BROKEN AND
The cross that JESUS carried on His back has CRUSHED SATAN’S HEAD! The bruised heal had the last word after all!
