God’s first promise of Christ was made to the Devil in Gen. 3:15

After God created man and woman in the Garden of Eden He commanded both Adam and Eve to obey Him. The serpent slipped in, deceived Eve and caused the first members of the human family…to fall from communion and harmony with God. The Fall was the Original Sin spoken of in the Bible. That’s why the sin of Adam made every human being born afterwards “polluted” with sin.

After the Fall of man God cursed the Devil and the Earth. Man was thus effected by the curse that God made. Within the curse also came a promise from God of a Saviour and Redeemer, Christ. The promise was that Christ would bruise the head of Satan. The promise was that Christ would be bruised on the cross at Calvary. The promise God made to the serpent was the first prophetic utterance made in the Bible. It was recorded by Moses in the first book of the Torah…Gen. 3:15.

Within that first promise lies the complete plan of Salvation from God for all humanity. Within that promise is a Saviour that would suffer, bleed, and die to destroy the works of the Devil. Fallen man would thus show the disease of the entire human family up to this present hour. The supremacy of Christ in His death burial, and resurrection would show how the power of God has prevailed and triumphed through the, pages of history. The miracle contained in that first promise is that the promised Christ is cure for the disease. Hallelujia! Sin is the disease. Christ is the cure.

Christ was promised in Gen. 3:15 to destroy the works of the Devil! Christ was promised to be born of the seed of a woman. God told the Devil he made a serious mistake when he beguiled Eve. This prophecy is the foundation of the true Gospel message. It contains the truth about Christ. The truth about what God promised. The truth about what man is, and the truth about how man can be delivered and cured from the disease of sin.

Glory to God! I’m thankful for this promise! My Salvation is based on what God said! My hope lies in Him and His promises. I live a present life of victory in Jesus, and have a future life to be with Him in Heaven or with Him in Heaven on Earth. Christ is the anchor of may Salvation. Christ is the future of my my hope! I am not ashamed of the Gospel as it is the power of God to everyone that believes. Here’s the first of God’s promises about my Saviour.

Gen 3:14-15…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: 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.

    God’s plan despite man’s disobedience personifies His love for us.
    For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God yet He loved us even while we were yet sinners. He loves us with an Everlasting Love that caused Him to give us His only begotten Son that whosever believes in Him should have eternal life. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness down through the ages and to His unchanging Word. May we accept His gift of eternal life to us and live it everyday. No longer bound in sin’s domain, but in the liberty that He has won on Calvary. Praise the Lord. He saw our need for salvation and met it .

    Blessed be His wonderful name.
