Bible Teachings 408

Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess and Episode 8 of my mini Bible series "Bible Teachings".

Let's recap: So far, you've learned that human rulership does not work. All it brings is misery, pain and death. We cannot live in harmony with each other unless we have God's guiding influence, rulership and protection. Is there any hope for us?

Adam threw away his chance of perfect life in a perfect paradise forever. By disobeying God, he sold his descendants (that's us) into sin and death. That's why we and our children are born with birth defects, why we get sick, deteriorate and die (Romans 5:12*). Immediately after Adam and Eve's disobedience in the Garden of Eden however, God pronounced this judgement found at (Genesis 3:15*). Speaking to Satan (the spirit person disguised as the serpent), God said:
"And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring. He will crush your head, and you will strike him in the heel."
  All this might sound like gobbledygook, but it was actually a prophecy to deliver us from the grips of sin and death by means of a heavenly government (Daniel 2:44*) and a promised "seed" or offspring that would destroy Satan and his organization (Revelation 12:9*) and any individual(s) hating/opposing God's Sovereignty (Matthew 15:3, 6b; 23:33; Mark;7:13; Revelation 11:18b*). For years, the identity of this promised "seed" was a sacred secret, but Jehovah God has not left us in the dark. He has provided His Word, the Bible to help us. History can attest to the fact that God's previous prophecies and judgments have all come true. God cannot lie (Titus 1:2*). In fact, He wants us to search the Bible for the answers not just to this prophecy, but to all of life's questions as if we were looking for hidden treasure! (Proverbs 2:1-5*) Why? Because knowledge about God's purposes and the application of said knowledge means your life! (John 17:3*) Are you listening? I invite you to return for Episode 9!
