Msg #1848 The First Advent in Scripture

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

“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” (Gen3:15). At least two things begin in this Genesis revelation; first is the tracing of the seed-line that would bring the Saviour of mankind into the world, second is the progressive revelation about the Messiah, (Greek, the Christ), the Only Begotten Son of God. In the Bible the seed-line traces through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah, and King David with an obscure clarity that is discerned with study. In our sick and twisted rebellious society that now rejects all knowledge of X and Y chromosomes it is doubtless necessary to point out that women do not have seed, they have egg, thus the seed of woman in Genesis 3:15 fits succinctly with “a virgin shall conceive” of Isaiah 7:14. The catholic church, Roman, Eastern or Protestant, has never done well at separating between Christ's first advent and his second advent. C.I. Scofield (1841-1921) pursued a “Fundamental” separation from their apostasy and wrote, “The O.T. foreview of the coming Messiah is in two aspects - that of rejection and suffering (as e.g. in Isa 53), and that of earthly glory and power (as e.g. Isa 11, Jer 23, Eze 37). Often these two aspects blend in one passage (e.g. Psalm 2).” It would behoove the serious student of Christ to read through Scofield's hundred-and-five chain referenced verses on the First Advent, (80 O.T., 25 N.T.) and note them as distinct from his hundred-and-seventy-six chained references on the Second Advent (50 O.T., 126 N.T.) Such a scripture study (never taught by Protestant Clergy) will enable a more profound worship of our Lord Jesus Christ as we acknowledge his virgin birth in Bethlehem. Merry Christmas.
