Dear Looking For Clarity,
Gen. 3:15 is a prophecy regarding Jesus. Satan, the old serpent (Rev. 12:9), would forever battle with Eve’s descendants, but one of Eve’s descendants would crush the head of Satan. Satan bruises the heel, but Jesus bruised the head – He delivered a deathblow. Heb 2:14 shows that Jesus’ death destroyed the power of Satan and crushed him under the power of Jesus’ selfless gift. Rom 16:20 shows Satan is crushed under the feet of those that Jesus paid for with His blood (Acts 20:28).
