Genesis part 4

Rescue Plan Announced

Before the Adam and Eve left the garden God declared His plan of restoring mankind to His presence. He said to the evil one,

"I'm declaring war between you and the Woman, between your offspring and hers.
He'll wound your head, you'll wound his heel."

Gen. 3:15 MSG

In other words there would be another battle between good and evil and evil will be destroyed. This woman's descendant would one day attack the evil one in the head, which would be a fatal injury. The evil one would one day attack the woman's seed's heel, but that would only temporarily injure, not destroy.

 

Parting Gifts of Love and Hope

God must have been so sad to have His friends turn away from Him. He had no choice but to send them out of the garden. Before they left He gave them each a special gift. God made a leather coat for each of them. To make the coat God had to kill some of the innocent animals He loved; perhaps they were lambs. When the animal's blood flowed, it was a foretelling of the hope of God's rescue plan. I'm sure the coats or robes were beautiful, because God Himself made them. The coats were symbols of God's love that continued no matter what the people did—coats of love and hope.
