ENMITY BETWEEN MAN AND SATAN

"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 3:15. The divine sentence pronounced against Satan after the fall of man was also a prophecy, embracing all the ages to the close of time and foreshadowing the great conflict to engage all the races of men who should live upon the earth.God declares:"I will put enmity." This enmity is not naturally entertained. When man transgressed the divine law, his nature became evil, and he was in harmony and not at variance with Satan. There exists virtually no enmity between sinful man and the originator of sin. Both became evil through apostasy. The apostate is never at rest, except as he obtains sympathy and support by inducing others to follow his example. For this reason, fallen angels and wicked men unite in desperate companionship. Had not God specially interposed, Satan and man would have entered into an alliance against heaven; and instead of cherishing enmity against Satan, the whole human family would have been united in opposition to God.

Satan tempted man to sin, as he had caused angels to rebel, that he might thus secure co-operation in his warfare against Heaven. There was no dissension between himself and the fallen angels as regards their hatred of Christ; while on all other points there was discord, they were firmly united in opposing the authority of the Ruler of the universe. But when Satan heard the declaration that enmity should exist between himself and the woman, and between his seed and her seed, he knew that his efforts to deprave human nature would be interrupted; that by some means man was to be enabled to resist his power.

Satan's enmity against the human race is kindled because, through Christ they are the objects of God's love and mercy. He desires to thwart the divine plan for man's redemption, to cast dishonor upon GOD, by defacing and defiling His Handiwork; he would cause grief in heaven and desolation. And he points to all this evil as the result of God's work in creating man.It is the grace that Christ implants in the soul which creates in man enmity against Satan. Without this converting grace and renewing power, man would continue the captive of Satan, a servant ever ready to do his bidding. But the new principle in the soul creates conflict where hitherto had been peace. The power which Christ imparts enables man to resist the tyrant and usurper. Whoever is seen to abhor sin instead of loving it, whoever resists and conquers those passions that have held sway within, displays the operation of a principle wholly from above

The antagonism that exists between the spirit of Christ and the spirit of Satan was most strikingly displayed in the world's reception of Jesus. It was not so much because He appeared without worldly wealth, pomp or grandeur that the Jews were led to reject Him. They saw that he possessed power which would more than compensate for the lack of those outward advantages. But the purity and holiness of Christ called forth against Him the hatred of the ungodly. His life of self-denial and sinless devotion was a perpetual reproof to a proud, sensual people. It was this that evoked enmity against the son of God. Satan and evil angels joined with evil men. All the energies of apostasy conspired against the champion of truth.

The same enmity is manifested towards Christ's followers as was manifested towards their Master. Whoever sees the repulsive character of sin, and in strength from above resists temptation, will assuredly arouse the wrath of Satan and his subjects. Hatred of the pure principles of truth, and reproach and persecution of it's advocates, will exist as long as sin and sinners remain. The followers of Christ and the servants of

Satan can not harmonize. The offense of the cross has not ceased. "All that will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." 2Timothy3:12.

Satan's agents are constantly working under his direction to establish his authority and build up his kingdom in opposition to the government of God. To this end they seek to deceive Christ's followers and allure them from their allegiance. Like their leader, they misconstrue and pervert the Scriptures to accomplish their object. As Satan endeavored to cast reproach against God, so do his agents seek to malign God's people. The spirit which put Christ to death moves the wicked to destroy His followers. All this is foreshadowed in that
prophecy : "I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed." And this will continue to the close of time.

Satan summons all his forces and throws his power into the combat. Why is it that he meets with no greater resistance? Why are the soldiers of Christ sleepy and indifferent? Because they have so little real connection with Christ; because they are so destitute of His spirit. Sin is not to them repulsive and abhorrent, as it was to their master. They do not meet it, as did Christ, with decisive and determined resistance. They do not realize the exceeding evil and malignity of sin, and they are blinded both to the character and power of the prince of darkness. There is little enmity against Satan and his works, because there is so great ignorance concerning his power and malice, and the vast extent of his warfare against Christ and His church. Multitudes are deluded here. They do not know that their enemy is a mighty general who controls the minds of angels, and that with well matured plans and skillful movements he is warring against Christ to prevent the salvation of souls.

Among professed Christians, and even among ministers of the gospel, there is scarcely a reference to Satan, except perhaps an incidental mention at the pulpit. They overlook the evidences of his continued activity and success;they neglect the many warnings of his subtlety; they seem to ignore his very existence.
While men are ignorant of his devices, the vigilant foe is upon their track every moment. He is intruding his presence in every department of the household, in every street of our cities, in the churches , in the national councils, in the courts of justice, perplexing, deceiving, seducing everywhere ruining the souls and bodies of men, women and children, breaking up, families, sowing hatred, emulation, strife, sedition,
murder. And the Christian world seem to regard these things as though God had appointed them to exist.

Satan is continually seeking to overcome the people of God by breaking down the barriers which separate them from the world. Ancient Israel were enticed into sin when they ventured into forbidden association with the heathen. In a similar manner, are modern Israel led astray. "The god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ who is the image of God, should shine unto them."2Corinthians 4:4. All who are not decided followers of Christ are servants of Satan. In the unregenerate heart there is love of sin and disposition to cherish and excuse it. In the renewed heart there is hatred for sin and determined resistance against it.

When Christians choose the society of the ungodly and unbelieving, they expose they expose themselves to temptation. Satan conceals himself from view and stealthily draws his deceptive covering over their eyes. They cannot see that such company is calculated to do them harm; and while all the time assimilating to the world in character, words and actions, they are becoming more and more blinded.Conformity to worldly customs converts the church to the world; it never converts the world to Christ . Familiarity with sin will inevitably cause it to appear less repulsive. He who chooses to associate with the servants of Satan will soon cease to fear their master. When in the way of duty, we are brought into trial, as was Daniel in the king's court, we may be sure that God will protect us; but if we place ourselves under temptation we shall fall sooner or later.

Jesus was conceived by the power of The Holy Spirit. God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit. So if God is spirit, Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit Then His DNA is divine DNA. We have the DNA of our respective fathers. You are your father's daughter because of his DNA. Since Jesus has divine DNA, DNA of the Holy Spirit and we know that God is spirit then suffice it to say Jesus is the Son of God.

You are your father's son, aren't you? The DNA of your father reconstitutes in you, doesn't it? Now if no man had to sleep with Mary for Jesus to be conceived, and that only the Holy Spirit made it possible then who is the father of Jesus? We all know that God is spirit and those that worship Him must do so in spirit, right? So if it is by this very spirit that Jesus was conceived then He is God's Son....And no!! He wasn't married and had know kids; as far as I know...
