God's Mercy is Beyond Comprehension

God's Mercy is Beyond  Comprehension
Have you ever thought of the terrible sin Adam and Eve committed? 

Our loving Father walked and talked with them every day, but they chose to believe the lies of the serpent.

They doubted God's command, damaged the perfect world He'd created for them, and rejected His generous love. 

He had every right to destroy mankind, but His mercy prevailed.

The Old Testament is the story of God preparing mankind for our redemption. In every book, God whispers clues of His plan, giving an unfolding revelation of Jesus, the coming Deliverer. 

And the very first clue comes when God addresses the serpent after the Fall:
"And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel." Genesis 3:15


Whispered within this verse is the promise that Satan and his demon offspring would be at odds with Eve and her offspring. But the most important offspring of woman, Jesus Christ, would crush Satan's head--a fatal wound.

While the taste of the forbidden fruit was still on Adam and Eve's lips, God was already whispering about His gracious way to save them.
