Romans 1:3 “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh.”
Throughout history God prophesied of the coming of the promised Seed. That Seed would bruise the head of the seed of the serpent according to Genesis 3:15. The Lord repeated this promise again and again, so that His people would not lose courage. Each time the promise was richer, clearer and more sharply defined. The church knew that the Messiah would be from Abraham, of the tribe of Judah, of the lineage of David.
Mary, as a descendant of David is now given the privilege of bringing forth the promised Seed. The age-old enmity between the seed of the serpent and the Seed of the woman culminated in the birth of Jesus Christ. Satan knew what would happen when the true seed of David was born, and tried to do everything in his power to keep Jesus from coming. After Jesus was born, the devil tried to kill him and tempt him to sin. But, the Seed is victorious. However great the challenge, the sin, the struggle, we know that the victory does not belong to Satan, nor to the world, nor to the Antichrist. The victory belongs to the King who rules on the throne of David to all eternity.
Rejoice in the wonder and faithfulness of God’s promises! The Bible proves that it is the Word of God again and again in that the things prophesied take place precisely as they were prophesied. God is faithful to His promise. Today and every day we lean on His faithfulness for our encouragement and strength.
