Studies With Stearman: Volume 2: It’s All About the Seed
Recorded LIVE with Gary Stearman
Do you know about the first prophecy in the Bible? It’s given by the Lord God in Genesis 3:15. It foretells the ages-long battle between the woman, Eve, and her offspring, down to the time of Mary and the birth of the Redeemer, Jesus.
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:15)
The ancestral record of Eve’s matriarchal DNA is given in Luke 3, which is Christ’s legal lineage (the line of primogeniture). It is Jesus’ blood title to the throne of David. But it also refers to the virgin birth, in which God is shown to be His literal Father. This single, amazing fact is key to understanding what the Bible refers to as the “book of life.”
From the very beginning of the human race, Satan’s modus operandi has been to corrupt man in every single way – most particularly to corrupt his genetic purity. Before the flood, he almost succeeded, save for the eight members of Noah’s family. God’s great triumph came in the birth of Jesus, the perfect man, who overcame Satan’s rebellion for all time. His flawless genome is the story of the seed that began with Eve.
