Two Seeds?

Two seeds?

Spurgeon, "In the Garden with Him." #2106.

So the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, you will be punished...And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed..." Genesis 3:14-15

There are two seeds in the world- the seed of the woman, and the seed of the serpent. And if the seed of the serpent never hisses at you, you may be afraid that you do not belong to the seed of the woman. God has put an enmity between the serpent and the woman; between the serpent's seed and the woman's seed.

And so it must be till the end of time.

Take any opposition that you get from worldlings as a token for good, a sign that you are of a different race from those who despise you, a testimonial to your character from those whose homage to goodnessembodies itself in persecution. That is the way in whichthey compliment us.
