The First Reference to a Messianic Person Genesis 3:13 13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14 So the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, (The serpent and Eve) And between your seed and her Seed; (Serpent’s Seed and Eve’s Seed) He shall bruise your head, (The Seed shall bruise the serpent’s head) And you shall bruise His heel.” (The serpent shall bruise The Seed’s heel) Not about Women afraid of Snakes The “Seed” not Seeds indicates a victor. Messiah is not Angelic, not simply Deity Messiah will be of human origin. Seed of woman hints at Virgin Birth.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, (The serpent and Eve) And between your seed and her Seed; (Serpent’s Seed and Eve’s Seed) He shall bruise your head, (The Seed shall bruise the serpent’s head) And you shall bruise His heel.” (The serpent shall bruise The Seed’s heel) Enmity – Hostile, Unfriendly Disposition The Serpent (Satan) has a “Seed” Descendant Satan’s will be the Father of the Anti-Christ The “Seed” will receive a head wound (fatal) The Anti-Christ will be defeated by the Messiah

He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Messiah.
Avoid Divisive Persons Romans 16:17 17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
Revelation 12:9-10 9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, ”Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.
Revelation 19:19 Anti-Christ & False Prophet Killed 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Revelation 20:1-3 Satan Bound 1000 Years Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
Revelation 20:7-10 Satanic Rebellion Crushed 7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

6:1Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. Genesis 6:1-4 The Satanic Attempt to Spoil the Seed of the Woman
Genesis 6:1-4 The SONS OF GOD married the DAUGHTERS OF MEN BENEI ELOHIM “Sons of God” means “brought into existence by God’s creative act. Sons of God in the Old Testament refers to Angels See Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7 New Testament also it refers to Adam (Luke 3:38), Believers (John 1:12)because believers are a new creation. (Galatians 6:15) It is NOT saying that “Godly Males” married “Ungodly Females” It is saying that FALLEN ANGELS (DEMONS) married Human women.
3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Nephilim means “Fallen Ones” not Giants. Genesis 6:1-4 Demonic Fallen Angles produced the Giants ‘The Nephilim’ µylipi NÒh'
The Septuagint (LXX) a Greek Translation of the Old Testament written in 250 B.C.used the term “gigentes” givgante" which means Titan. According to Greek Mythology the Titans were the result of the gods from Mt. Olympus married human women. ‘The Nephilim’ µylipi NÒh'
The Titans are so “Renown” We even name our football team after them. The Nephilim - Superhumans
5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The Messianic Christology in the Hebrew Names of our non-Jewish ancestors, from Adam to Noah.
Luke 3:23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli, 24 the son of Matthat, …… the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, 37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan, 38 the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
Adam Adam's name means "man." As the first Man, that seems straightforward enough.
Seth Adam's son was named Seth, which means "appointed." Eve said, "For God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew."
Enosh Seth's son was called Enosh, which means "mortal," "frail," or "miserable." It is from the root anash, to be incurable, used of a wound, grief, woe, sickness, or wickedness. It was in the days of Enosh that men began to defile the name of the Living God.
Kenan "Cainan" Enosh's son was named Kenan, which can mean "sorrow," or "wandering nomad."
Mahalalel Kenan's son was Mahalalel, which means "the Blessed God." Often Hebrew names include El, one of the many names of God.
Jared Mahalalel's son was named Jared, from a verb yaradh, meaning "shall come down." (Some authorities also tie this to the "Sons of God" corrupting the daughters of men, resulting in the Nephilim of Genesis 6.)
Enoch Jared's son was Enoch, which means "teaching." He was the first of four generations of preachers. In fact, the earliest recorded prophecy was by Enoch, and which, amazingly enough, dealt with the Second Coming of the Messiah, (It is quoted in the Book of Jude in the New Testament):
Jude 1:14-15 "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints…
Methuselah Enoch was the father of Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah. The year that Methuselah died, the great flood came. Thus His name means “His death shall bring!” Apparently, Enoch received the prophecy of the Great Flood, and was told that as long as his son was alive, the flood would be withheld.
Enoch, of course, never died; he was translated. (If you'll excuse the expression, "raptured.") That's how Methuselah can be the oldest man in the Bible, yet he died "before" his father!
Lamech Methuselah's son was named Lamech, which means "despairing." This same root also seems to lie behind our English word lamentation. (While a similar root can mean "strength." this name is linked, through traditional Jewish sources, with the Lamech in Cain's line, who inadvertently killed his son Tubal- Cain in a hunting incident.
Noah Lamech, of course, is the father of Noah, which means "comfort."
Adam – Man Seth – Appointed Enosh – Mortal Kenan – Sorrow Mahalalel - The Blessed God Jared - Shall come down Enoch – Teaching Methuselah - His death shall bring Lamech – Despairing Noah - Rest, or comfort. Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; the Blessed God shall come down teaching, His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.
The Messianic Person would be Human The Messianic Person would also be Divine The Messianic Person will defeat the enemy(Satan) The Serpent Satan, has a seed (Anti-Christ) The Messianic Person would repair mankind: Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; the Blessed God shall come down teaching, His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.
