she will crush your head

Christie and I studied the story of Adam and Eve with Tanzanians the other day, and, as is our practice, each individual shared what they learn about God and man from the passage we read and summarized.  After that, each person stated what they would do in response to our study — how they will be obedient (or at least what response our passage would require of someone, if the Bible and its stories are indeed true).

What I learned:

It’s impossible to be obedient to God,
when I’m constantly listening to people.


What Christie will do to be obedient to God (from this passage):

I will faithfully honor God…
by continuing the enmity between myself and snakes.


The Tanzanians loved her response.  And speaking of snakes, I think my beautiful wife may have craftily tricked our friends into believing SHE’s the funny one.

  1. Isaiah 1: 10 G-D is asking us to hear and listen, and we in pray ask G-D the same thing do we not?

    If we do not have eyes to see and ears to hear G-D, why should He turn His ears to us, or His eyes. Did you know that the only thing that can come into an eye is light without hurtting it? So if sin covers you, you will not enter in the eye of His protection, will you? So that is why: we read Isaiah 1: 12,13,14, and let us not forget…verse 15.

    Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that the rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD. Genesis 49:16-18. We are to ask for the spiritual strength that was not given Samson, and ask G-D’S blessing and help…in the journey home.
