The stories are there… On the news, social media, even when you walk through the stores. Stories that tell us something is wrong. Our land is infected with what seems like a disease,and to many there doesn’t seem to be a cure. People go on for years living like this accepting hopelessness and nothing changes…
But God… God tells us something in his word. He tells us we have been infected by something worse than a disease,he calls it sin. It goes back to the beginning of time with the father to all mankind Adam. When Adam ate of the fruit which God told him not to in Genesis 3 he brought on the curse of Sin into the world and passed on the sin nature which he now had to everyone who would be born after him infecting and affecting everyone born of man to this day. Things began to break down, chaos ensued. Things looked really bad and God destroyed almost the whole earth except for Noah and his family. Yet back when God confronted Adam over his sin he did not leave him without hope.
“And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”
This is whats known as the “proto evangelium” or more simply the first mention of Gods plan through Jesus and the gospel of salvation.
God curses the serpent by saying “I will put enmity between you and the woman” there we have the continual battle of Man and the fallen angelic host this is known as the “spiritual warfare” that takes place daily in the lives of believers and non believers alike.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NKJV
Notice also back in Genesis 3:15 it says that there will be enmity specifically between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. This is actually referring to a specific person Jesus himself who would be born of “the woman” the seed would be supernaturally given by the Holy Spirit for Jesus to miraculously be born of a virgin “Mary”. Jesus would be born without the inherited sin nature and not have to live under the curse of sin and death. Yet.. He still lived as a man. He got hungry He got thirsty He suffered in pain as we do.
Jesus came with a purpose. The purpose of reversing the curse of sin and death and bringing a New Covenant or a New deal to all of mankind. He brought with him the power to heal this land of its fallen nature by offering not to restore the land itself but Individuals themselves. He said “you must be born again” no one can offer anyone this except Jesus. Its a new beginning A new way to live life with God and have relationships healed, have families restored, bringing healing to communities and helping the broken and dead come to life. This offer by Jesus Christ is the good news like finding out there is a cure to a disease that was once incurable now is available to everyone who receives it. Jesus is the cure the way to heal this broken land. It won’t happen through government and through efforts of the flesh. Revival in the land means Jesus is reviving it like a spiritual doctor. We need him now more than ever. Pray
