Sin’s guilt removed

‘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

The nature of the Redeemer’s work is set forth by a conflict with the serpent and his seed, in which:
(i) Christ should be completely victorious, removing the guilt of sin, the curse of the law from his people; that he should destroy death and him that had the power of death (that is the devil). These great things he has already done. Sin is expiated—God is reconciled, death is disarmed of its sting and Satan is a vanquished enemy who can do nothing but by permission. And there is a day appointed which will openly solemnize this triumph and bruise this enemy finally under his feet.
(ii) He should conquer by suffering. Yet great as these were in the garden and upon the cross, his bloody agony and bloody death, only his heel was affected—his human nature and that life which he took on purpose that he might lay it down. His head was invulnerable; his divine nature and his life that he had in himself were out of the enemy’s reach (Romans 6:9; Revelation 1:18).
I saw one hanging on a tree,
Alas! I knew not what I did,
In agonies and blood;
But now my tears are vain;
Who fixed his languid eyes on me,
Where shall my trembling soul be hid?
As near his cross I stood.
For I the LORD have slain.

Sure, never till my latest breath,
A second look he gave, which said,
Can I forget that look;
‘I freely all forgive;
It seemed to charge me with his death,
This blood is for thy ransom paid,
Though not a word he spoke.
I die, that thou may’st live.’

My conscience felt, and owned the guilt,
Thus, while his death my sin displays,
And plunged me in despair;
In all its blackest hue;
I saw my sins his blood had spilt,
(Such is the mystery of grace)
And helped to nail him there.
It seals my pardon too.
