The Prophecy of Genesis 3:15 and Christmas


"I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel."   ~ Genesis 3:15 (HCSB)



When you see a nativity scene, you don't often think of the prophecy of Genesis 3:15. Instead, you think of a tiny baby of poor parents who had to travel to Bethlehem and when finding no room in any of the inns, stayed in a stable and she gave birth. You think of the angels singing and announcing his birth to the shepherds, the bright star in the night leading them there to Him and later on leading the wise men to Him. You may think of Herod's attempt to kill Him and killing all the innocent babies under two years old and the mourning in the streets of Israel that day. You think of a stable, which is  like a barn, a baby laying in a manger, which is actually an animal's feeding trough and the very happy and proud parents. You don't see the filth of that stable, the germs in that feeding trough and a very exhausted mother who had just traveled for miles during the end of her pregnancy riding on a donkey. You remember the prophecy of Isaiah 9:6 -

 "For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."  

You don't remember the prophecy of His death in Psalm 22:14 -

"I am poured out like water, and all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me." 

Or think of the anguish He bore on the cross. You think of a tiny baby that was born to save those who would believe on Him to be saved. 

The very first prophecy that Christ would be born as one of us is in Genesis 3, verse 15. It is not a verse of a tiny baby but a verse of a Messiah, the Christ, who would be born of a virgin and would one day destroy Satan. For you see, it's not Christ's birth that is most important. Yes, He had to be one of us and it is important to know this, but what is most important is Christ's death. His birth made Him like us, human...fully human. But He was still fully God, even at His birth. That tiny baby was GOD in the flesh! The savior of mankind, the Messiah, the Christ of God. He would be born and grow up with the full knowledge of God, even at a very young age -

"After three days, they found Him in the temple complex sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all those who heard Him were astounded at His understanding and His answers. When His parents saw Him, they were astonished, and His mother said to Him, "Son, why have You treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for You. "Why were you searching for Me?" He asked them. "Didn't you know that I had to be in My Father's house?" ~ Luke 2:46-49, and would die for the sins of those who believed on Him.

No, Genesis 3:15 is not a verse many think of when they think upon the nativity scene. But it is the first prophecy of His birth. Jesus would strike Satan a deadly blow one day by His death on the cross. Satan's blow was to put Him on that cross, but it would backfire. Jesus' death would shed all of His blood, the sins of the world would be put upon Him and He would face the full wrath of God. That tiny baby was born to take the punishment for the sins of mankind and this plan was put in place before you or I or the world or the universe had ever been created. Before the foundation of the world...

Still yet, Jesus is the Creator God -

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created."  ~ John 1:1-3

Can you imagine? Knowing as you were creating man that one day you would have to die the most brutal death ever for him? Knowing that you had to do it because man would turn against you in sin? Yet this is what He did. Because He wanted a people for His own. But those people would be deceived and sin, the bond would be broken and man would be separated from God by his sin.

God cannot bear to be in the presence of sin. He is so Holy that sin cannot even be brought into His presence, and mankind, lost in their sins would die in them and be eternally separated from God forever. The sin debt must be paid. Christ died for us, this is true, but He also died for God. Because unless that sin is paid for and covered, man could never be saved. And so Genesis 3:15 was the prophecy that it would one day be paid for. And those who believe on Him would not perish but have their sins forgotten as they are covered by Christ's righteousness because Christ shed His blood on the cross....Satan's strike...yet He would rise again on the third day with victory over death, the grave and sin...Jesus' strike...and through His death we are saved. 

This is truly why a nativity scene is so hated by unbelievers who protest to have them taken down. The cross was in the future of this baby's life and His death would condemn them if they did not repent and follow Him. It's not the baby in the manger, it's Who that baby is and what He represents...the light piercing the darkness and exposing the sins of man that hide in it.

"Life was in Him, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it." ~ John 1:4-5

Darkness cannot overcome light. And sinful man does not want his sins, his deeds exposed by the light of Christ because when they are revealed, he has to face them and repent of them, or go deeper into the darkness to hide his sins better. But you cannot hide from God. He sees all and knows all. If you deny Christ, He will deny you. And you will face the full wrath of God yourself. Why do that? Jesus already did it for you. All you have to do is repent and believe. Your sins will be forgiven and forgotten if you do but if you don't, even God won't help you.

The nativity scene is beautiful. It speaks of hope and peace and life in Christ who will be our Savior when we are saved. There is a future of everlasting life and freedom from the curse of sin for those who believe. And those who don't will join Satan in hell for all eternity. 

The birth of Christ is important, but the death of Christ is more important still. 

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." ~ Joshua 24:15 (KJV)

We Will Be gods....No, I Don't Think So....

You said to yourself: "I will ascend to the heavens; I will set up my throne above the stars of God. I will sit on the mount of the gods' assembly, in the remotest parts of the North. I will ascend above the highest clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." 
Isaiah 14:13-14 (HCSB)
"Your splendor has been brought down to Sheol, along with the music of your harps. Maggots are spread out under you, and worms cover you." Shining morning star, how you have fallen from the heavens! You destroyer of nations, you have been cut down to the ground...But you will be brought down to Sheol into the deepest regions of the Pit." ~ Isaiah 14:11-12, 15 (HCSB)

Satan did not get away with it before and he will not get away with it again. Neither will man. They may try, they may promise eternal life but man will never achieve his own immortality apart from God Most High. We are immortal beings, even though our bodies die, our souls go on. But where it goes on TO is the question. Will you spend your eternity in hell with Satan and his failed plans for godhood? Or will you submit to God and humble yourself and trust Christ as your Savior and spend your eternity with the ONE True God? No one escapes. Whether you believe or you don't believe now, I can honestly tell you, that one day you will believe. Will you trust yourselves to science or will you trust yourself to God Almighty?

This has all been tried before. Satan in his attempt to overthrow God and take His throne failed. Adam and Eve, in the Garden tried when they were told they would be as gods in the garden and ate the forbidden fruit, failed. The fallen angels creating the Nephilim (another attempt at transhumanism) also failed. Nimrod with all his might and power and his tower failed. And man in all his wisdom now will fail as surely as all those who have tried before him. There is only one God and it is Him you must trust to make you immortally alive. Any other way is immortality in hell.

"Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." 
~ Joshua 24:14-15 (KJV)

The Conquistadors encounters with Giants

Fascinating article!


http://xavianthaze.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-conquistadors-encounters-with-giants.html

Antarctica Atlantis?

I've bought some books based on the theory that Atlantis was in Antarctica. Seems our frozen southern continent hides many elusive secrets. Hitler was fascinated by Antarctica and had a Nazi base camp there. He felt that the opening to the "hollow earth" was there and many believe that he escaped there at the end of WWII and that it was his "double" that died in Germany.

I do not believe in the hollow earth theory....what I do believe exists in the inner earth is Sheol or Hades. The compartment for the lost who die without Christ as their Savior. Paradise was once there but was emptied when Jesus set the saints there free and took them to heaven. All that is left there now are the damned.

I believe that Antarctica actually could be the home of Atlantis. There are pyramids that have recently been discovered there. There is the Piri Reis map that shows Antarctica before it was covered in ice. Columbus knew of Antarctica as surely as he knew that there were lands to the west because he had maps of them....he did not discover the Americas, he already knew they were there.

I could go into a whole story of the Americas being inhabited thousands of years ago by the Phoenicians, Egyptians, Africans, Vikings, Chinese and many other cultures that inhabited the lands long before the Native Americans arrived here. Even they will tell you that they were not here first and that most of the lands were inhabited by the Giants. But that is for another time.

As I read these books and do research, I will post about it and maybe make a video or two as time allows. If you have any input or other theories of where the famed lost city may be, please feel free to comment and let me know. History still has mysteries. And I love a good mystery.

"He reveals mysteries from the darkness and brings the deepest darkness into the light."

CHANGES

At the beginning of this year (2013) I had hopes of making videos and blogging here at least 3 times or more a week. That did not work out. First my mother became seriously ill, then my husband left, and after enduring years of his abuse, I let him go. We are getting divorced. I had to move in with my sister to help take care of my mother who has chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. She's doing well though. My marriage is not. It is finally over and the day the divorce is final I will be free no longer having to live with a man who can't control his temper and his mouth. So I am behind....on everything. But things are settling and I am going to try to pick up where I left off and get back to work. Please pray for my mother, my family and my children and me. Thank you so much for your patience and prayers. It means so much to me. God bless!
