Eight (8) Pivotal
Points to Consider in Understanding Genesis 3:15
1) The Watchtower Society simply assumes the "Woman"
cannot be Eve because she could not produce a perfect "seed." (But we
can ask ourselves, does the "seed" need to be perfect to accomplish
God's Will in this instance?)
2) If the "Woman"" pictures the heavenly
organization (as taught by the Watchtower Society), then her "seed"
could NOT be Jesus because Jesus was created directly by Jehovah as His
"only-begotten," and thus existed before any other spirit creature in
heaven. And as we know, Jesus was responsible for the creation of the entire
angelic family and so could not come from this group of angels, but instead
they come from him. (John 1:18; Colossians 1:15, 16)
3) The Churches of Christendom who say the "Woman"
is Mary, overlook the obvious fact if you say the "seed" comes
through Mary, you are still saying that the "seed" still came from
Adam & Eve. You can't separate that fact. -- See Genesis 4:25; 12:3;
17:5; 22:17, 18; 2 Samuel 7:11-15; Psalms 89:3, 4.
if the "Woman" is Eve, Jesus could not be her "seed" or
descendant because no imperfect human male was involved in his conception. This
of course means in medical terms, Mary was used ONLY as a "Surrogate" mother
in giving birth to Jesus. -- Please see Part 3 for more information on Surrogacy and/or being a “Surrogate Mother.”
4) The foretold "enmity" spoken of in this verse is
strictly between Satan and the "Woman" and then, between the
"seed" of Satan and the "seed" of the "Woman."
Isn't that true?
5) Since we know Satan's "seed" is earthly, so must
the Woman's "seed" be also. Further, they must co-exist together on
earth, in order for genuine "enmity" to be expressed between the two,
6) Since the foretold "enmity" is between the two
earthly "seeds," so must the accompanying "bruising" action
be delivered to one another, on earth. Otherwise, it would have been
pointless to mention the predicted "enmity" was to be strictly
between the "seed" of the Woman and the "seed" of
Satan [Serpent]. If the "bruising" actions were to be between the
Messianic Seed and Satan [Serpent], then why even bring up the
"enmity" between the two "seeds" in the first place.
7) The Bible emphatically states Satan is to be destroyed
by God, and not by the "seed" of the "Woman" or messiah. So
the "seed" of the "Woman" does not "bruise" Satan
or destroy him. (Romans 16:20)
Last But Not Least, As This Is The Most Important Of These Eight
8) The name devil means “slanderer” [Greek: Diabolos].
So think, who was actually slandered in the Garden of Eden when Satan said Adam
and Eve would NOT die after eating the forbidden “fruit?” (Genesis 3:4) Was it
Jehovah or was it Jesus -- which?
The answer is Jehovah God.
So, the primary enemy of Jehovah is Satan the Devil, more so
than even Jesus.
No doubt, this is why the “Archangel Michael” refused to
“rebuke” Satan and indicated this should be done ONLY ... only
by Jehovah God Himself. [For that matter, no one knows what it would take to
kill an angel or angelic force anyway, since this has never been done before.
The bible only tells us that Satan’s wicked life would be terminated by
throwing him into the “lake of fire” and completely destroying him. Yes, only
the Almighty Himself knows how to do this.] -- See Jude 9; Revelation
