The Gift Of God, Part 10,
Post date: 30-Dec-2012 19:15:12
And so lets wrap this up by going to the book of Revelations
And in this study we have gone in three steps from Genesis to the story of Jacob and Esau and
now to the book of revelations and this is where we journey in the next series of studies
THE SERPENTS STING
Revelation 12:17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war
against the rest of her offspring--those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
So the dragon of old persecuted and persued the woman (Church)
Whether this be the Church of Old Genesis 22:17 and the seed thereof
Or the Church Romans 8:11
this dragon...the serpent of old Revelation 12:15 being in emnity Genesis 3:15 and waging war against the children that the "woman" bore
Though the dragon could not destroy the Church, he endeavoured to devour the lifes of those who were known as "saints" being covered by the Blood of the Lamb Romans 8:31
he "the serpent " made war aginst the "remnant of her seed" this being the children of God
And he was at "emnity" with "the Manchild" Revelation 12:1-17
Here we see the the prophetic word being outworked in history, from Genesis 3:15 to
the biblical end of the prophetic word
But we know that the word of God does not end at revelations, for that which is not written still
awaits to be seen and that which is not seen still awaits to be revealed
So those who bore the testimony of Jesus being the "seed of the woman" saw and were a part (were, are and will be) of the emnity ..the raging war that was fought and won yet being fought and to be concluded in Revelation 20:10
BY HIS STRIPES
In this we see a "God created enmity" something that happened due to and since the
disobedience of Man and resulting in the fall, being a curse Genesis 3:17
So the "bruising of the head" is the serpents end , a death blow and a fatal wound being that the serpent or dragon lost the key to death and death no longer has its sting 1 Corinthians 15:55
Yet "The bruising of the heel" being that the promised seed would suffer Hebrews 2:14-15
In Revelation 20:1-2 we see the link here between the serpent of old that was in the garden of Eden and the dragon eg:
"He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil"
And in this and at this time we see the "Judgement of satan" Revelation 20:10
The "final blow to the head being Revelation 20:1–15 and this is where we have this scripture
Psalm 91:13 this relating to the devil being the serpent or asp and the lion or dragon 1 Peter 5:8
UNDER THE LAW
Now lets go to Galatians 4:4 where God sent His Son born of "a woman" under the "law"
Under the law being that Jesus was born in : nature of humanity being born and raised and
subjected to the fall (in that he aged and was born) and raised under jewish law, being both
under the precept of it and under the curse
In this we have Immanuel - God with us - Isaiah 7:14
Whereas the curse upon mankind has brought death , so Immanuel brought a sharp blow to
the generational curse by ending it and taking the "key"
For though I was born "in sin" as it states in Psalm 51:5 and though we are sinners by nature and
so although Mary was born in this, Jesus never sinned in that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
being a "life giving Spirit" 1 Corinthians 15:45
SEED OF THE WOMAN
And so the "seed of the woman" Galatians 3:16 isJesus and all who are part of "The Church"
the seed being the seed as numerous as the stars in the sky being that the have inside them "The Manchild"
And so Christ became a curse for us Galatians 3:13 on the Cross , that is He took the punishment
we deserved , the curse of the Law being the curse which is due to sin, nailing it to the Cross
For death is the wages of sin Romans 6:23, in other words "the curse was to take our place"
And there will be a time when the enmity will be at an end and all will be revealed, as yet we
see a poor reflection but then all will be revealed on the day of "Revelation" 1 Corinthians 13:12
