Under standing that common sense prevails when God communicates with you may cause you to question something: Has there ever been a time when you may have questioned that Eve biting an apple was the first sin?
Genesis 3:15 KJV tells you about that sin; it begins with God dressing Satan down for his contribution to it:
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.
This prophecy shows God putting enmity between Satan's seed and Eve's. Enmity is a barrier representing God's hatred and dislike towards something Satan has done, a barrier drawing attention to the need that He has to separate Satan's seed line from Eve's. Satan's seed line, having just been placed in motion, must be understood if you are to understand Original Sin; Webster's clarifies "enmity" for you:
a : ill with such as actuates a personal enemy *his act only increased the enmity of his rival* b : a condition marked by such ill will : hatred or antagonism especially when mutual *men settled in enmity toward their fellows* c : an instance of such ill will or hostility
Bruising thy head also refers to Satan and his remaining alive today shows that this part of the prophecy has not come to pass but the bruising of Christ Heel has:
His Heel was bruised when the Roman soldiers nailed him to the cross. Continuing in the Garden, Genesis 3:15 takes you to the "seed" part of this prophecy and exploring what took place there brings questions to the surface, questions concerning Satan's presence in the Garden that, when answered, sheds light on our subject: Based on a previous article about Cain and the Kenites, Jamie, of Hartsville, has asked if we can document two points that were made by that article and they were:
(1) That Cain started the Kenite bloodline and (2) that Satan was his father. Genesis 3:15 directs you towards that documentation as "sperm" is the reason God addresses Satan. The manuscripts show the meaning of "zera" which is the Hebrew word translated to "seed" in this prophecy: zera`, Hebrew 2233, Strong's; from Hebrew 2232 (zara`); seed; figurative fruit, plant, sowing-time, posterity :- × carnally, child, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time.
"Sperm's" meaning in the manuscripts fit's the translator's use of "seed" as it justifies God's fury towards Satan; fruit, child, and posterity indisputably illustrate that "sperm" is what God is talking about.
Knowing that Christ was coming through Eve's untainted bloodline, Satan seduced her; his seed impregnated her. This was his first attempt to block the birth of Christ
