Bible pictures of Christ, Pt 4Bible pictures of Christ · part 4 of 126Rev. Ivan Foster · ChildrenGenesis 3:15 · Thu Oct 1, 2015
As a new school year has begun, Rev Foster has been asked to speak at two morning assembly meetings.His theme for 2015-16 is DV, Pictures of Christ in the Bible. It is to the beginning of the Bible that we must turn for the first picture of the Saviour for He was promised in the Garden of Eden. "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 3:14-15. In this statement it is made clear that the Saviour must suffer in order to save sinners. "It (the Seed, Christ) shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel," Genesis 3:15. There would be a conflict between Christ and the devil. 1. The work of the devil is turn men against God, to promote sin and rebellion. How many are doing the devil's bidding and they don't know it! "And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem, that were called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not any thing," 2 Samuel 15:11. "The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going," Prov 14:15. 2. If Christ the Good Shepherd was going to rescue the sheep He would have to confront the destroyer of the sheep. "O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts," Ezekiel 13:4. "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil," 1 John 3:8.
