“THE GOSPEL FROM THE GET-GO”

Some believe the Gospel was a plan-b for God and man. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The reason for His death, burial, and resurrection was to provide a way of escape from God’s judicial wrath on man for sinning against God.  

When sin entered in and the fall of man and creation was in full swing following their disobedience in the garden, Adam blamed God and Eve, Eve blamed the serpent, and God had conversation with all three. In Genesis 3:15, we read what is known as the protoevangelium. It is the first record of the good news of the Gospel.   

Sin has dealt its fateful blow in the garden of Eden but God speaks to the serpent, the devil, and He declares that there will be a hostility placed between the enemy and woman. That hostility will be between the seed of Satan and the seed of the woman. This hostility will bruise the head of the devil and the devil will bruise the heel of his heel. Who is he? It is Christ! 

Christ Jesus came to this earth in the form of man and the enemy sought to kill Him from the time He was conceived. Christ was born, lived a sinless life, and He died an awful death on the cross. It was here where Christ dealt an awful bruise to the head of the serpent. On the third day following His burial, Christ arose from the dead. This dealt the fatal blow the Satan, Sin, and Death! The Gospel was never a plan-b for God and man. The Gospel was and continues to be the only plan for man to be redeemed to and by God! 

 

Genesis 3:15–“15 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.”
