She knew she already had the victory in Jesus Christ. Perpetua and her fellow martyrs were so confident of this hope that they saw the day of their martyrdom as the day of their victory, the consummation of that which began the moment they placed their faith in Jesus. Soon they would see their Victor. Their hope was not in escaping their troubles.
Despite the trials that awaited them, they rejoiced because they saw their hope at the end of their race ahead. They fought the good fight and their Hope was now in sight. God is always mighty to save, whether it be from the physical troubles of Psalm 46 or the spiritual deliverance of Romans 8.
When studying Scripture we must always consider the people to whom the passage is written. Just because Jerusalem was promised to receive physical protection from God, does not necessarily mean that we are guaranteed the same today. Could God deliver us from personal troubles today? But Psalm 46 must not be read as a promise for believers today.
One thing from Psalm 46 is true for all people at all times; Whenever God determines that something shall not prevail against us, nothing it throws at us will be able to move us, for our strength is not in ourselves but God alone is our refuge and our strength. Or do you have a loved one who insists a certain verse is especially for her? I have to say when I was going through turmoil from the enemy, I would open my Bible a lot asking God to show me a sign.

Ephesians NIV: "Honor your father and mother"--which is the first commandment with a promise--
Subscribe to our Newsletter. Daily Devotionals x. Daily Bible Reading Plans x. Recently Popular Pages x. Recently Popular Media x. In the third chapter of Genesis we find one of the most important verses in Scripture.
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 Genesis According to this verse, there will be enmity between the individual woman Eve and the serpent who deceived her. The word enmity indicates a blood feud. There will also be enmity between his seed and her seed. God promised that eventually the serpent would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. However, the seed of the woman would also bruise or crush the head of the serpent.
This will be a fatal blow. Who is the seed of the woman and who is the seed of the serpent? What do these predictions mean?
The seed is to be understood as either one individual or a group of people whose appearance would be some time in the future. It was a promise of someone or some people to come. Redeemed Humanity Many commentators understand it to refer initially to redeemed humanity and then ultimately to Jesus Christ. Therefore the seed of the woman began with Abel, the second son of Adam and Eve.
Cain, the first son, would not qualify because he was a murderer. The comment of Eve, upon the birth of the third son mentioned, Seth, seems to show that she understood Abel as part of the fulfillment of the promised seed.belgacar.com/components/espion-telephone/application-surveillance-iphone.php

And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed Genesis The ultimate seed of the woman would be Jesus Himself. Therefore, we have in Genesis , the first promise of a Redeemer.
It is the beginning of a long line of prophecies concerning the coming Messiah. The Promised One would be from the woman's seed an indication of the eventual virgin birth of Christ. Humanity In General Some Bible students see that seed of the woman as referring to humanity in general. They believe that Cain was the beginning of the fulfillment of this prophecy that was eventually culminated in Christ.
It changes the pronoun from the masculine his to the feminine. This unfortunate translation gave wrongful support for the claims concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary. The idea that Mary was the seed of the woman has no basis in fact in the Scripture. Bruised Heel The seed of the serpent would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. On the cross Satan bruised the heel of Christ, causing His death. Bruising suggests something that was not ultimate or final.
Christ died on our behalf being made sin for us 2 Corinthians He bore our judgment upon Calvary's cross and, in doing so, bruised His heel. Though wounded, the damage done to Jesus was not final, for He came back from the dead three days later. Seed Of The Serpent The phrase seed of the serpent also has various explanations. It does not mean the physical descendants of the Devil but rather those who are his spiritual descendants. There is no indication that Satan ever had any physical offspring. Unredeemed Humanity Some feel seed of the serpent speaks of unredeemed humanity beginning with Adam and Eve's first son Cain and continuing on to all those who oppose God.
