The plan to bring Jesus into the earth did not start nine months or even a few years before He came, but it was at the least milleniums in the planning. The first announcement of Jesus’ birth came as soon as there was a need for a Savior, when sin separated God from people. Just after Adam and Eve sinned, God declared forcibly to the serpent (satan),
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel (Genesis 3: 15).”
In a type of code, God was announcing the coming of Jesus, who would come to fix things on the earth, between God and people. This was the preview of the Conqueror born of a woman, who would crush Satan’s power. We know this to be when Jesus would die on the Cross and come back to life three days later making the way for people to be free from Satan’s dominion.
“Enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed,” but wait, a woman has an egg and a man has the seed. This is not only the first prophecy of Jesus coming, but also to His miracle birth of being born to a virgin.
Dear God, You are amazing in Your plan to make things right with mankind. Thank you for coming to earth in Jesus, so we could be free from Satan’s grip, and come back into fellowship with You!
