A way of escape

‘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.’ Genesis 3:15

If I was to dwell upon every circumstance and expression in this chapter, it would confine me too long. I shall therefore chiefly insist upon this memorable verse in which the first and great promise of mercy and salvation to fallen man is contained. The curse of God fell heavily and absolutely upon Satan whose doom is couched in figurative expressions suitable to the figure of the serpent he assumed. Our first parents likewise received a sentence implying much misery, pain and labour in the present life, to terminate only with death. But in this verse, a way of escape is provided from the eternal death which their sin had justly deserved. In the words [we have] a promise of the Redeemer, a brief intimation of his sufferings and success, and these so expressed as to be applicable to all his people
We have a promise—the seed of the woman. The Redeemer [is] thus spoken of to intimate that he should be truly a man made of a woman and partaker of our very nature (Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:14), and that his incarnation should be miraculous and extraordinary—made of a woman, but without a human father, by the agency of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35).
Prepare a thankful song
Upon the cross he died,
To the Redeemer’s name!
Our debt of sin to pay;
His praises should employ each tongue
The blood and water from his side
And every heart inflame!
Wash guilt and filth away.

He laid his glory by,
And now he pleading stands
And dreadful pains endured;
For us, before the throne;
That rebels, such as you and I,
And answers all the Law’s demands,
From wrath might be secured.
With what himself hath done.

Though pressed, we will not yield, But shall prevail at length,
For JESUS is our sun and shield, Our righteousness and strength.
