We are one day closer to the return of the One who has won the victory over sin and death, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Keep looking up!
“So the Lord God said to the serpent, ‘Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.'” – Genesis 3:14-15
We recognize this account in the Bible as being the pronouncement of God’s curse on the serpent, or, as we commonly know him, the devil. This prophetic declaration came as a result of his deceiving Eve to believe his word over God’s word, with Adam following suit. God would have no mercy on the one who caused His most loved creation to fall into sin, and as a result, the clock of ultimate judgment started at that very moment, and will end with the crushing of Satan’s head.
But, along the way, the One who would do the head crushing came and was struck on “his heel” to pay the penalty for the sin that had entered the world. That person is Jesus Christ, the only one ever born of the Holy Spirit through a virgin woman. He died as the only sacrifice that can remove our sin passed down from Adam, if we believe in Him. And because Jesus rose from the dead, ascended to heaven and is seated next to God the Father, we can have the assurance that He will come again to fulfill His promise to destroy the one who caused sin to enter the world.
The clock is ticking, and we can see the signs God has given, telling us, the coming of the “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16) is near. My hope is that everyone who reads this is ready for that day. If not, I pray you will put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, the One who died and rose victorious from the grave, and paid the penalty for the sin passed down from Adam to each one of us.
Lord, thank You for the promise of Your victorious return! May we serve You with that hope in our hearts on our Mission, until You come again! May God bless you all!
