Christ and Antichrist
“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed” (Genesis 3:15).
This is the first prophetic statement made in the Bible.
God was speaking to the serpent, possessed by the devil, and He was pronouncing a curse upon them. But, this was also a prophecy about the birth of a human descendant of Eve that would be the one that would ultimately put an end to the devil and his destructive ways. It was the first prediction of a coming Messiah, who we now know was Jesus Himself, the “seed of the woman”.
But, notice that there is another “seed” mentioned here.
Two descendants are referred to, Satan’s seed and the woman’s seed. The descendant of the woman is universally recognized to be the Messiah, but it is often overlooked that the seed of the serpent would also be an individual that enters into the pages of human history. We know this one to be the Antichrist. Although Satan’s schemes to prevent the birth of the Messiah failed, he has not given up the war against God and humanity.
History is moving toward the final showdown between Christ and the Antichrist.
And there should be no doubt about who will be victorious.
