_______The Lamb of God

After Adam and Eve were created in the garden of Eden, the Serpent beguiled the woman and she did eat of the forbidden tree; and the woman did give to the man, and he did eat. Knowing full well that God did grant them that they could eat of every tree in the garden except from the one tree called the tree of the Knowledge of good and evil (last phrase see Genesis 2:17). Because all four: the man, the woman, the serpent, and the Devil disobeyed the Lord God concerning the tree, the Lord God set forth a curse on all four. The curses set forth for each are as follows:

The man--"And unto Adam he (the Lord God) said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life..." (Genesis 2:17).

The woman--"Unto the woman he (the Lord God) said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." (Genesis 2:16).

The serpent--"And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:" (Genesis 2:14).

The Devil--"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 2:15).

EXPLANATION: The Devil's curse is the most relevant for this page. For in it is the first prophecy of the virgin birth. It is important to note that God had given Adam rule over the earth up until Adam had eaten of the forbidden tree. The Devil then became "prince of this world." It would be the curse that God had given to the Devil, that by the seed of the woman, a virgin would conceive a son. The Devil would bruise his heel (Jesus was crucified); the son (Jesus) would bruise his head (Jesus would become Savior). Also, it was no blunder--it was no colossal mistake, Satan had no choice but to kill Jesus for his quest. For at the Last Supper, Satan entered Judas most likely to offer Jesus his former offer in desert. If Satan had not killed Jesus, it is presumed that Jesus had the power not only to continue to raise people from the dead, but to raise them all.


"But thou, Bethlehem, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me (God) that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2).

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6).

"He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth...Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin." (Isaiah 53:7&10).


Jesus said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).

Jesus said, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send Peace, but a sword. For I come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law." (Matthew 10:34&35).
EXPLANATION: Jesus came to cause division like light and darkness.

"And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him."(Mark 15:20).

"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:10&12).
