THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
TROUBLE started in the Garden of Eden.
And, SALVATION was proclaimed in the Garden of Eden.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them,
Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:
and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl
of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman,
What is this that thou hast done?
And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent,
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:
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.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Genesis 3:15 (above) is actually called the protoevangelium.
It is the first mention of the Savior in the Bible.
Man, Adam, was the first God-formed human.
Jesus is the second God-formed human.
He was formed by a miracle of God.
He was made from the "seed of a woman."
And He Whom was formed in her was "called the Son of God."
(See Luke 1:35)
Through Adam we are born physically, and inheriting sinfulness.
Through Jesus we can be given spiritual life.
We can be"born again" to become "new creations" of God.
Through Jesus we can be placed under the "law of the Spirit of life"
and made "free from the law of sin and death." (See Rom. 8:2)
Through Jesus we can be made "complete in Him,"
because He is "the head of all principality and power." (See Col. 2:10)
The first promise of God to sinful man was the miracle of Christmas!
A man would be born seed of a woman!
And, this man would CRUSH Satan's head!
There is only ONE Who can crush Satan's head!
He is the "Son of the Living God!" (See Matt. 16:16)
It all started in the beginning!
