Basic to our understanding of scripture.
“ And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed...” Gen 3:15a
“ The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” Gen 2:9b
The Seed War
As with most references I make, I may or may not agree with every aspect of the information in this video. Nor do I believe this video exhaustively covers the issue. I offer it as an introduction to the topic.
The Two Trees in the Garden
The enemy offered Eve the lie. The lie is twofold: You will never die and you will be as God [Elohim]. We still live with that lie today. The promised “Seed of the woman” is the Lord Jesus Christ himself. We are born in the flesh after Adam, but to achieve life (escape from death in resurrection) we must be born again.
“Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:5-8)
Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that theywere naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. (Gen 3:4-7)
