Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” – “Seed” is in capital letters and refers to Jesus.

In summary, what can we learn from Virgo?
Immanuel (God with us) is the promised Seed, and the Desired One to be born of a virgin, whose name is Mary. Although He will be despised & rejected by men, He will be the Seed that is bruised, but that crushes the head of the serpent. But the time will come when God will raise up His Righteous Branch, to execute judgement and righteousness in the earth and reign as King.
This King has come down so that you may find peace with God and salvation through Jesus and it is very simple:
- Ask God to forgive you of your sins. Confess to Him that you have broken His law and have sinned against Him.
- Ask Jesus to save you. He has already paid the penalty for your sin. Acknowledge that He died on the cross for your sins but 3 days later, rose from the dead, conquering death so that you may have life. Ask to receive His gift of salvation.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to change you, give you a new heart, a new mind, to dwell with you, teach you and give you the courage, power, strength and faith to turn away from your sin and follow Jesus.
