Seed of a Woman

Genesis certainly is a strange place to preach/Christmas sermon.

• Here/midst of man’s greatest tragedy

• revelation of man’s greatest hope

• here the tale of sin, judgment and death

• meet/message/saving Gospel and

• Person of the Lamb of God for the first time.

• What more/wonderful message to preach for Advent.

_____________________________________________

God has made man in His image.

• He created man/perfect innocence

• Placed him in a perfect environment.

• Adam/given dominion over/Lord’s entire creation

• Presented/perfect companion/woman called Eve.

• They live/idyllic existence, free/pain, disease, death/sorrow.

Every need they have is met and they enjoy unbroken, unhindered fellowship with God Himself, Gen. 2:8-9.

Only restriction: one tree

• “The tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”

• Adam/warned to stay away from this tree

• to eat its fruit will bring death into the world

___________________________________________

Gen 3:15 “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

• Everything else/Bible flows from these words.

• As the acorn contains the mighty oak

• These words contain the entire plan of salvation.

• would be fulfilled thousands of years later/Calvary

• Neither Adam or Eve could fully have known what these words would one day mean.

• right in the middle of this tragedy is a flicker of hope.

Verse 15 shines out of this darkness like a great beacon, illuminating the amazing grace of God.

I. The personality of the promised lamb

This Lamb Is Unique In His Origin

• Told/One Who is coming “the seed of the woman.”

• strange statement

• Told/woman will produce/offspring w/o aid of a man.

• First prophecy/Virgin birth/Lord Jesus Christ.

• Satan/Adam/Eve did not understand it

God indicates He will send His Lamb/world through a woman without the involvement of a man!

• This is how the birth of Jesus came about.

• Isaiah prophesied it, Isa. 7:14

• angel Gabriel announced it to Mary and Joseph

_______________________________________________

Why is this important?

• Bible teaches sin/sin nature/handed down through the man

Every person who/entered/world through/old fashioned method inherited a sin nature, and is a sinner at birth

• Birth of Jesus/different.

• He came into this world without a human father

• Born w/o taint of sin! pure and sinless

• qualified to die for the sins of humanity, 2 Cor. 5:21.

birth/Jesus particularly unique is the fact that He was no ordinary baby, but He was, and is, God in the flesh

======================================

• coming into/world to do battle with/forces of evil.
