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: 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. Unto the woman He 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. And unto Adam He 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; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. (Gen 3:14-19)
But, even in the midst of all this judgment GOD shows mercy and pronounces the first Gospel to the descendants of Adam. GOD promised that there would come one who would redeem fallen man. The promise of deliverance from their sIn by faith in GOD and the promised Messiah was proclaimed in GOD's judgment of the serpent. Jesus was victorious over sIn and the grave, when He paid our sIn debt and rose again. All those who put their faith and trust in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for Salvation and forgiveness while surrendering to GOD on His terms will be saved by His power and grace. From Abel who died in faith to the saints of GOD's Church, to the believers during the Tribulation, He will save to the uttermost all those who come to Him in faith and repentance. That is the message of Hope we have to share with all whom we meet.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. He calls everyone to repent, that is, turn from your sIn and turn to Him in faith. Believe His Word and receive Him by faith in His Salvation and forgiveness of your sIn on that cruel Roman cross and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son is that promised one, the Messiah, and He calls you to come to Him and receive the victory He has already won.
