    Who?

    I believe it's God Himself, in Genesis 3:15 it says:

    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."

    Bro Ruben,
    I think you are onto something there. Amen again.

    True. And God is still the One preaching the Gospel to His people, therefore, God is not, and never, dependent on means and human beings to reach His people.

    BTW, what's the meaning of "it shall bruise thy head" when God said it to the serpent?

    Thanks.

    Hello Bro.Ruben.

    Gen 3:15 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. KJV.

    GE 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." NIV.

    If I dared to mess about with scripture I might think of turning a sentence around: thou shalt bruise his heel and it shall bruise thy head

    I would not dare correct the translators and go with the NIV.

    What do you think?

    GE 3:21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

    The second prefiguring of the cross. :cool:

    john.

    Hi, Brother.

    Yeah, you're right. It looks your view does serve the same meaning.

    Now, how about the serpent, was God speaking of Satan's defeat for saying "it shall bruise thy head"?
