Revelation in Genesis

As I was studying the scriptures I became enlightened to a truth that was right there in the scriptures all along. We can see the evidence of Bible Prophecy right there in Genesis.


Consider this verse,


14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. - Gen 3:14-15

Note well that in verse 15, God is no longer talking to the serpent but to the devil in him. God said that He would put enmity between the devil and the woman. Here we see God, all the way in Genesis, giving a foreshadowing of a vision that John sees all the way in Revelation. In Rev 12, John had a vision in which a woman, clothed with the sun, moon and stars, was pregnant. However, a great dragon was prepared to devour the child upon birth. Despite this, as the child was born he was taken to heaven. The dragon later persecutes the woman, and the woman receives wings and flies away from the dragon to the mountains.


Interpretation


The woman is the nation of Israel. (The Sun represents Jacob (who is also called Israel), the moon represents Rachel (Israel's wife) and the stars represent the 12 tribes (sons) of Israel) - Gen 37:9-10 The dragon is the devil. (who is often referred to as a serpent in this chapter (Rev 12))The child is Jesus.


John's vision is a portrayal of the enmity between the devil and the woman, stated by God in the garden. Israel is the mother of Jesus Christ, whom the devil sought to devour at birth, by sending a decree through King Herod to kill all the baby boys of His time (Matt 2:16). However, Jesus survived and at the end of His days was raptured (ascended to heaven - Acts 1:9). The devil, however, through the Antichrist, will in these last days persecute Israel, however, 1/3 of the population will flee to the mountains and there be protected by God.


Do you see how Bible Prophecy can be found all over the scriptures? Open your eyes and you will see it.


Here is another point that is worth mentioning:


...and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel

The enmity will also be between the seed of the devil and the seed of the woman. The seed of the woman is Christ, however, the seed of the devil is the antichrist. Jesus through the cross of Christ has destroyed all the works of the devil (bruised his head) (Heb 2:14).


However, the antichrist will have power over the saints, to cause them to die (bruise Christ's heel) (Rev 13:7). Strong's Concordance states that the word "heel" used in Gen 3:15 means, last, or the rear of an army. The heel refers to the latter parts of Christ, the last of the Body of Christ, or in other words, the latter-day church.



God taught a whole lesson on Bible Prophecy in two lines while judging the serpent. What an awesome God we serve, because only he can put Revelation in Genesis.
