“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
With the stroke of an indescribable ingenuity, God introduced a mechanism on the earth that would ensure a chain reaction of creation without His direct involvement. This unfathomable wonder is the “seed.” With the creation of the plant and animal kingdoms, including man, God purposefully deposited “seeds” in each of them as stated in the first chapter of Genesis. It is because of the miracle of the “seed” that animate creation have not become extinct despite no direct involvement of God since the first six days of creation.
In our scripture reading for today, God’s plan of redemption of mankind after the fall of man and the subsequent restoration of their original blessed state was revealed. The first Adam, who received a supernatural aid known as “blessing” from God failed in his singular purpose of becoming fruitful and taking dominion on the earth. This intangible or spiritual “BLESSING” was recorded by Moses in Genesis 1:28, “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” After the fall, the original redemption plan of God and subjugation of Satan on the earth (I refer to it as God’s Plan A, not B) as recorded by the Apostle John in Rev. 13:8, “All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world,” was revealed and set in motion.
According to the divine plan, the fullness of divine prosperity and dominion on the earth, the true “blessing” of God that makes rich without any added sorrow, and restoration of the “blessed state” of man would be accomplished through the Seed of the woman. Please note that the word “Seed” is spelled with an upper-case S and the “He and His” all begin with upper-case H in today’s scripture reading. This Seed could have been only one Person, and His Name is Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Godhead on the earth. We can emphatically deduce that the heavenly plan for the restoration of the “blessed state” of mankind is only through the “blessed Seed” of the woman.
However, before this Blessed Seed would be fully manifested on the earth, a righteous line was carefully selected to be carriers of this priceless Generational Blessing. The following were selected according to the election of grace: Seth and the righteous line stated in Genesis 4:25-26 and the fifth chapter of Genesis, Noah, Shem and his chosen descendants recorded in Genesis 11:10-32, and finally a man called Abraham, the father of faith. Scripture is replete with the truth that in the Seed of Abraham, all families and nations on the earth would be blessed from generation to generation.
Receive your inheritance by faith. You are the BLESSED SEED in this generation. It is your turn to be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over all creation in Jesus’s Name.
