Stand fast in the battle

‘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.… And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.’ Genesis 3:15, 20–21

Notice two things that follow in the chapter:
(i) an intimation of Adam’s faith in this promise, in the name he gave his wife (verse 20). He called her Eve, which is derived from a word signifying life. The reason is given: because, in her seed, the true life, the dead in sin should live to God and thus she was to be the mother of all living.
(ii) the seal of this promise on the Lord’s part—clothing them with skins—the skins, without doubt, of beasts slain for sacrifice and thus I doubt not the imputation of the righteousness of the great sacrifice was typically set forth to their faith.
We may preach the gospel to poor sinners. Jesus is here revealed as set apart of God from the beginning to destroy the works of the devil. Believe in him and you shall be saved. We may remind believers of the nature of their calling—think not of stable peace and rest here—the serpent and his seed are in close conspiracy against you; pray therefore for the whole armour of God that you may stand fast in the evil day.
Begone unbelief,
Why should I complain
My Saviour is near,
Of want or distress,
And for my relief
Temptation or pain?
Will surely appear:
He told me no less:
By prayer let me wrestle,
By prayer let me wrestle,
By prayer let me wrestle,
The heirs of salvation,
And he will perform,
I know from his Word,
With CHRIST in the vessel,
Through much tribulation
I smile at the storm.
Must follow their LORD.
