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. (Genesis 3:15)
When man fell from grace and Righteousness God promised him salvation …but it would come through a woman.
Genesis 3 is the account of that fall and of the promise which was offered in the midst of it.
The Judge of the Universe summonsed three perpetrators to come out of hiding and to stand before Him, in inquisition for sin and guilt.
First, the Most High asked the man to give account of himself. The man is held primarily responsible for the fall, He merely stood there as Eve was tricked by the Serpent,. Adam was passive, abdicating his God assigned regency of the garden.
Why does the Most High ask Adam questions? Because he wanted to elicit a humble confession, in order to save him. But the man only shifted blame to his wife and to God himself.
Second theLORD asked of the woman…but she too refused persona accountability, blaming the serpent.
Finally he brought the Serpent up, but he asked him no questions…rather he pronounced a judgment upon the serpent, which would provide a ray of hope to our first parents, penetrating the gloom of shame and guilt.
The Serpent had tricked and seduced the woman, and the man through the woman, but the LORD would bring salvation to the couple and judgment upon the serpent, through the woman also.
In my book, CREATION,FALL, And THE HOPE Of REDEMPTION, I discuss this fact that Satan hates all men but has a particular hatred for women,
- Satan hates all mankind but has a special hatred for women . . . The devil hates women particularly, because the salvation of man would be born of a woman. This is why false religion such as Islam is so harsh and unjust to women, using and abusing them like so many chattels.
Secularism, also being satanic, is hateful of true womanhood. What is feminism but the hatred of the truly female? It is war on motherhood, nurture, love and support of men, marriage, romance and loyalty. The greatest modern expression of the serpent’s hatred of women would have to be abortion and its twisted twin, homosexuality. Ironically this generation imagines that it has exalted the status of women, when in truth it is ruthlessly destroying it.
- But there is a typological understandingof “the woman”. The Book of Proverbs is a revelation of God that revolves around the choice of a young prince, between two women; the gaudy harlot and/or the virtuous wife. Both women offer wisdom, and call out to the young and naive, but only one of the women is true and can lead to God. The other woman’s steps lead to death and hell.
Revelation likewise features two metaphorical women–the appalling “great whore . . . mystery Babylon”, and “the Bride, the Lamb’s wife”. In Scripture, women are metaphors for spiritualities. There is a true woman, whom the serpent hates; she encompasses the true congregation of God. She is called the daughter of Zion, the Bride of the Lamb, for there is an unbroken continuity from Old to New Testaments.
The serpent hates the woman, and has always sought to defile or destroy her. This is the meaning of the hatred of Israel, the wayward wife of the LORD. This is also the reason why the true church has always been persecuted and rejected.
In the beginning of the Bible there is a talk between a woman, and a serpent in a garden, a fallen angel. She and her husband in effect said “yes” to the devil, and “no” to God.
At the time of the Incarnation of God, in the annunciation to Mary, we also have a conversation between a woman, and an unfallen angel, Gabriel. She said, “yes” to God, and so too, did her engaged husband-to-be.
And at the end of the Bible, in the Revelation we have a vision of a woman, clothed in the sun, crowned with twelve stars, writhing in agony of childbirth as a consequence of saying “yes” to God. She is confronted by a terrible dragon (this is how the serpent would develop), who hates her and her seed, seeking to destroy them.
But he can’t, for she is God’s woman.
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 (Genesis 3:15).
All of the modern evils which ate converging in our world, have this in common, they denigrate and degrade true womanhood. Islam? Woman are chattel, evil, and need to be covered up as though the very sight of a woman’s ankle or neck is designed to plunge Muslim men to hell. The Quran has most women going to hell, and a woman’s testimony is not even a fourth as valuable as any man in a court of law.
Homosexuality is a profound hatred for women. It destroys marriage, confuses gender and destroys the unique complimentary nature of men and women, replacing it with a perverse interchangeability, rendering the deep sacred meaning of sex within marriage, with all of its promise and orientation towards the future, obsolete, meaningless, and reduced to mere ecstasy for a momentary and degraded present.
Of course we know feminism is a vicious attack on womanhood. Femnism is man envy. Femnists don’t want to be women in the true sense, they want to compete with and best men in every field. It sets women against men (and boys) and destroys boys in our feminized schools before they can ever become men.
(Notice the feminists have no problem with the plight of European women at the mercy of Islamic Immigrants? They have nothing to say about it, they are too busy trying to catch western men in the fantasy of suffering under a “Patriarchal oppression”.)
What makes a woman a woman? God fashioned a woman to bear and nurture life, and to endure a special kind of vicarious suffering just to bring that life into the world.
The feminist insistence upon Moloch worship (Abortion) is a demonic assault on the uniqueness of a woman. Abortion is the destruction of womanliness, it is the antithesis of it. Thus our culture has created legions of sad, empty, angry, masculine looking women, who relish the idea of being as raunchy, crude and calloused as any sailor, construction worker, or convict out there. This has all of the hall marks of the Devil and his War on woman.
There is a reason why for centuries in the Judeo Christian world, it was men who marched out to war, not the women. The womb was seen as sacred, something to protect, and a sanctuary of life.
Before that the plight of woman was as foretold in the original message of Genesis. The serpent would hate her and persecute her, and people of the serpent would abuse and oppress woman. This is pretty much the case, until the Revelation given to Moses and to the Israelites on Sinai, which came as a virtual sexual revolution to the Ancient world, and which elevated the status of women and children.
If that was the sunrise, the coming of Christ was the full noontide for th elevation of women. Everywhere in the world that the Hebrew Prophets and Christian apostles have been listened to, worn have been elevated, respected and honored in comparison to the pagan world.
But as we recede from the light of the Word of God, the old barbaric practices return which are all expressions of the Serpent’s hatred for women, birth, motherhood and sexual chastity and marital protections .
