C&C: The Seed that was to Come

Filed under: Bible study, God — Tags: , , , , — cpministries @ 10:19 pm

Connections and Comparisons is an ongoing weekly series that deals with many scriptures in the Bible, some of which are not commonly addressed.  The purpose of this series is to examine the scriptures at hand comparing what is said and looking at the connections within.

Genesis 3:15
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.

This is the first prophecy of the coming Messiah.  This enmity or hostility between the serpent’s seed (the children of disobedience) and the woman’s seed (The Virgin Mary) would be Jesus Christ, who was coming to restore that which was lost in the Garden of Eden by Adam and Eve, this being sonship.

We learn from this prophecy that the seed of the woman, this being Jesus Christ, would bruise the head of the serpent, this being the devil, and it would also bruise the heel of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ the Righteous.

Isaiah 53:3-8
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Another prophecy of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, where we learn that he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities and with his stripes we are healed.  Healed from what?  The power the devil had over us, this being death.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Cor 5:21 KJV)

7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Galatians 4:4-7
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

The prophesied seed to come that would place enmity or hostility between the serpent’s seed, (the children of disobedience) and the woman’s seed (The Virgin Mary).

5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

It is the Spirit of God’s Son that dwells inside of the born again believer of God.  This being the Spirit of Christ or the Holy Ghost.

7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

The opportunity to once again become the sons of God through adoption by partaking of the born again process of God which involves being born of water and of the Spirit.  A spiritual rebirth that sets us free from the Law of Sin and Death.

Romans 8:1-4
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus because by one offering for sin, by the death of Jesus Christ, God has forever perfected the conscience of them that are sanctified because there is no more yearly sacrifice made for the remembrance of sin.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

The power which the devil had over mankind destroyed victoriously by Jesus Christ allowing a way for us to once again become the sons of God by adoption.

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Galatians 3:13-16
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham, the Son of God.  The prophesied seed to come that brought forth the ministry of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:17-20
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Galatians 3:17-18
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

Hebrews 2:14-16
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

The entire Word of God is about this seed that was to come and restore mankind back unto Himself.

Romans 8:2
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
