Confusion concerning Genesis 3:15, an explanation…

Confusion concerning Genesis 3:15, the serpent’s crushed head, Messiah’s bruised heel, the seed of the woman, the Gospel of Grace…

Jesus is the “seed” of the woman (Galatians 4:4)…a virgin seed (Matthew 1:23) essential to circumvent the sin-nature passed to all of humanity through Adam’s genome (Romans 5:12) and the bruised heal of Messiah speaks of His crucifixion where Messiah crushes the head of the serpent, the Devil, by destroying death, Hell, the grave, for all who believe in Jesus as Messiah…this is why Messiah appeared in the Realm of Time…“to destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) and this is subsequently pictured for us first in Genesis 3:21 where Elohim rejects Adam’s attempt to cover sin and shame via fig leaves (works) and Elohim proceeds to shed innocent blood, Himself, and clothes Adam and Eve in an imputed-gifted robe of righteousness which pictures the work of Jesus, the righteousness of Jesus, being imputed into and over the life of the one who believes (2 Corinthians 5:21).

For all intents and purposes, the Gospel of Jesus, ordained “before Time began” (2 Timothy 1:8-10), is revealed in the 3rd-Chapter of the Genesis Narrative if one possesses eyes to see and ears to hear via the indwelling Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27). The entirety of Scripture following Genesis 3 provides Elohim’s eschatological, theological, roadmap as He proceeds to restore order and holiness to His Kingdom disrupted by Satan’s rebellion; this, while Elohim via His omnipotence works through and around mankind’s free will choices concerning obedience and disobedience; this, for the benefit of the faithful angelic creation that looks-on with fascination, amazement and awe at what their Creator has done to right an eternal wrong via selfless love demonstrated at Golgotha while enduring a rebellious and obstinate human kind.
