“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel” (Gen 3:15).
|Serpent talking to Eve|
The Divine Promise:
You [Satan] shall bruise Him [Christ] on the heel.” The debased serpent reaches no higher than the man’s heel, yet when the venomous snake strikes this lower extremity, the poison spreads throughout the man’s entire body.Hence,the bruising of the Lord’s heel anticipates the cross where Christ would bear in His own body the judgment for every sin in the human race (2 Cor 5:21;1 pet2:24).
|In the spiritual warfare we have hope through Jesus|
Because man exercised his free will in negative volition, he had forfeited his relationship with God. Mankind was in no position to reverse his decision unless God should mercifully intervene. This is why Genesis 3:15, which is the first mention of the Gospel in the Bible, is one of the key passages in the entire scripture.
Down through the ages men believed this promise, right up to the coming of Christ at His first advent. They demonstrated their faith by offering animal sacrifices to God. The blood of bulls and goats could not save man from even one sin (Heb 10:4),but every time a man offered an animal sacrifice, even if it were only a pigeon, he was saying,” I have believed Genesis 3:15” Prphecy.Today when anyone accepts he is saying,” I believe John 3:16” for eternal life.
If we carefully study the scripture! We have a question? what is the seed of the devil is? Does devil multiply? Or maybe he has sexual life? What kind of seed does he have?
The seed was sown in us. When a man will be with a woman, the woman brings a little monster a human being containing the seed of [Old sin nature in him],the seed of the devil implanted in us through the Adam’s Original sin [DNA]. So all humans being brought to this life contain a seed of the devil.
|Jesus is Holy God without sin|
Flesh is living creature. It’s a living organism inside us that also need feeding. When it’s a time for eating, we say we are hungry and we go and we eat. Flesh has the same way of acting. Flesh gives you a signal to your head, saying Iam hungry, and then you say no! And flesh replies WELL see! And guess how we feed flesh? Lairs feed it with lying. Lascivious people feed it with lust stuff: dreams, thoughts, viewings
Remember it’s not the devil who use our flesh, we are the only who use our flesh. We make our flesh to sin, we open the door, we do, we commit.. and we get punished. Our bodies never resist us to serve God. We need to learn how to defeat flesh, how to keep it crucified or paralyzed. Humans being couldn’t resist a sin from the beginning.
TEACHING- This teaching is for the believers who want to be winners, for people who want to be the bride, who wants to learn how to win. I got this teaching from a friend in Christ. This is going to be a foundation before I start to talk about the secret of defeat over the sin flesh [old sin nature]. When Iam talking about a sin flesh[old sin nature], I don’t mean the flesh as our body, our body is a temple of Holy Spirit and we should bless it and take care of it. So our body is not a sin flesh. Sin flesh [old sin nature] is a living creature which was born during the sin fall. All people brought to this world have a sin flesh [old sin nature] in them.
The Story about how we inherited the sin nature will explain the historical facts. Adam ate the forbidden fruit; the offense had all-encompassing repercussions for mankind. This first sin, Adam’s original sin, was imputed and officially charged to the entire human race. Since Adam represented the human race, we stand or fall with him “For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners” (Rom 5:19).
We also inherit Adam’s sinful nature. The sin nature he acquired was genetically passed down to all mankind as his descendants. When he sinned we all sinned because we were seminally present in Adam[Seminal presence in Adam means we were all present with Adam because we were all derived from him; we are his seed.Therefore,the entire human race was considered represent when Adam sinned, which resulted in the depraved nature of mankind. We all share the same corrupt nature.
“Therefore, just as through one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and [spiritual] death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned[the moment Adam sinned] (Rom 5:12).
All sinned because the condemnation of Adam’s sin was imputed to our genetically formed sin natures resulting in spiritual death[The sin nature is the centre of man’s rebellion toward God.Transfered genetically, the sin nature originated as a direct result of Adam’s first sin and thereafter resides in the cell structure of the human body (Rom 6:6;7:5,18).
|Flesh Vs Spirit|
Sin flesh[old sin nature] occupied all sphere of life: our character, our will, our emotions, understanding, mind
We are so much coalesced with sin flesh[old sin nature] that we need something special, supernatural the power of the Holy Spirit to help us to live free life.
There is one thing we should understand, that our body is not our enemy, our neighbors are not our enemies and even the devil is not a problem in our life, because he is defeated creature,Our Lord Jesus crushed its head on the calvary cross because Jesus defeated devil and the devil which obeys the power of word of a believer by the authority given to us by Jesus. But there is something another living in our bones that never obeys to the power of name or blood or authority of Jesus Christ. It’s our sin flesh [old sin nature], living in us which was created by devil and planted inside of a man during the sin fall. Jesus said about the devil that he is the father of lies so he born it. I know that many people reading this might realizing the truth to fight against the old sinature through the power of the Holy Spirit.
For as long as we live the old sin nature and God the Holy Spirit will coexist as permanent residents in our mortal Body. When we believed Christ we are positionally sanctified and needs to experientially sanctify in our day to day Christian life in order to achieve the ultimate sanctification in eternity.
The word of God says: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” [Rom 12:1-2].
