Pictures of Jesus in Genesis Page 5

August 21, 2016

There are two pictures in the Old testament of the coming Messiah. One a conquering King…the other, mostly overlooked…a suffering servant ( Isaiah 53). Jesus came as the servant to suffer and die for the sin of the whole world. And He rose from the dead.

My husband asked me: “Do you know why Jesus rose from the dead?”  Ok, I’ll play along… “No, why?”  “Because the wages of sin is death and Jesus never sinned, so death couldn’t hold him”……wow….. just wow.

God Gives Adam a Glimpse of His Plan

God pronounced the curse on mankind for their disobedience. But before He pronounced the curse…He gave them hope. He gave us another significant picture of something to come in the future…speaking to satan, God said:

” I will put enmity between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will bruise his heel.”

It is significant that God spoke of satan’s seed…..and Eve’s seed. The first indication of a virgin birth. All other places in the Bible,  offspring, are referred to as the seed of man. But THIS particular seed will be the seed of Woman. Eve’s seed, the seed of woman,  will redeem the world of sin. And then God pronounced the curse and they were banished from the garden.

I heard a well known preacher say he didn’t think Adam and Eve were saved. Well, I respectfully disagree. I’ll tell you why next week.

    God knew what Adam and Eve would do before they did it. That is why he prepared a way for us to be saved. I don’t think he would have sent them to earth for failure, he always provides a way back.

      You’re right,, Julie. Last week I had this for page 4 of this series… “The second thing that strikes me is: God knew man would eat of the tree because he said…”when you do”…not “if” you do… Which furthermore verifies that God’s plan of redemption was set in place before creation. And we know from the first ‘photo’ in the album that Jesus was there in the beginning, at Creation.”…I am amazed. Thank you for commenting.

    Selfishness and self-absorbed behaviors go all the way back to Genesis. Sadly, they are often the cause of breakdowns within the family as one person’s behavior causes ripple effects on all the others around them.
