Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 December 1

“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).

Today’s Morsel:  When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden by disobeying God and they ate of the forbidden fruit, the serpent is punished more severely for being the culprit.  He is cast to the ground and made to eat dust.  To eat dust is a sign of defeat.  God told the serpent that there would be a seed of a woman that would come and bruise his head.  Now the parable is this, Jesus said the seed is the word of God (Luke 8:11). John wrote, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1,14).  The one that would come to bruise Satan’s head would be Jesus Christ Himself, God manifested in flesh.  Satan is defeated through the birth of Jesus Christ.  

Sing: We have heard the joyful sound: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!  Spread the tidings all around: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!  Bear the news to every land, climb the steeps and cross the waves.  Onward! ‘Tis our Lord’s command; Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Thought For Today:  You can always smash Satan’s head with the word (Parker)
