Advent 2020 Day 1
I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Genesis 3:15
The first prophecy about Christmas came directly from God. Speaking to the serpent, our new leader at the time, God speaks to us. Your day is coming because I am coming someday. A prophetic word instead of permanent judgment. The universe was set up to operate through honest decisions, not hurtful deception. Satan would reap what he sowed and so would man, but a Savior would come to crush the head of the deceiver and deliver the deceived. Man would be given the opportunity to choose differently and to chose what is good and right and true. For deception to rule it must continue to deceive. Truth was coming and He would crush the head of the serpent and the poison of the serpent at the same time. A serpent holds its poison in its head and delivers that poison into ours. It would cost Him His life, but it would give us ours back.
