Waiting For Messiah

MONDAY

This week we will look at Scriptures dealing with ‘Waiting for Messiah’. In order to wait, you must be looking and there was reason to look for a deliverer after Adam’s and Eve’s failure in the Garden. God gave Adam and Eve (along with the rest of humanity) hope in the midst of a curse (what a God we worship!).

NAU Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

NIV Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring {15 Or seed} and hers; he will crush {15 Or strike} your head, and you will strike his heel.”

KJV Genesis 3:15 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.

The promise Adam and Eve (and all humanity) were looking for would come from the seed of the woman – an unusual statement because seed (outside of this verse) is always referred to as coming from a man. Adam and Eve knew they should be looking for a descendant who would deliver them from the curse. Tomorrow we shall see who she thought was the answer to their problem.
