It Shall Bruise Thy Head

by Pastor Jeromy John Visser


Kinsmen and women, the problem with those who “separate themselves” is they lack the gift of the Holy Spirit (Jude 1:19) denying themselves true wisdom. If “wisdom is the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7)” then the godless and foolish man is left undefended in the ‘spiritual realm’ and is not able to pay attention to the God-given enmity or “hatred (#H342)” sited for the Christian’s benefit.

I’ve certainly covered the curse on Satan in several other sermons but today we’ll be looking at it from an entirely different perspective. Here’s the essential verse; “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15).” This strict Judgment from Yahweh between Satan and Eve is a divine revulsion placed between two seedlines. The Amplified Bible renders this same pearl like this; “I [God] will put enmity between you and the woman [Eve], and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.” As you can see, this is also an essential prophecy of the coming Messiah, the kinsmen Redeemer named Jesus who ultimately sprang through Eve through her replacement child Seth (Luke 3:38).

Here’s our proof; “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham (Hebrews 2:14-16).” Notice the term “seed of Abraham?” Death is also another name for Satan and today these two seedlines still continue to fight against one another in the physical and spiritual realms. We could say it’s ‘good against bad’ or ‘right and wrong’ but in reality it’s simply an ancient battle between the children of God and the children of the devil (I John 3:10).

For example, Romans 5:12 teaches us; “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” Many have fallen aside from these simple seedline truths because there are many false prophets among the ranks (II Peter 2:1) who teach contrary to the obvious sayings of the scripture. Jesus is considered “the head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10)” so anyone who does not acknowledge Him as God is not complete. Such false brethren can usually be found attacking other Christian brothers because they feel they’re wiser than they, such attacks against various Israelite teachers have been witnessed this week in our forums at CPM online.

About the only organization that has ever attempted to give CPM any trouble is the so-called Christian Separatist ‘Church’ Society headed by the fraudulent ‘Greek scholars’ behind the twisted AST ‘Bible.’ One of the main reasons for their feeble attacks is because of an outright ‘enmity’ placed between the children of Light and Satan's wicked seed. Strangely, this week their most two vicious aggressors have attempted to make peace after being excommunicated from the “cult known as CSCS.” It always pays to fight against such deceivers because their work never stands up to one who finds defense in the scripture itself. There can be only one “head” and this morning I will prove that it is Jesus Christ, anyone else claiming to be the Way is a liar (John 14:6).

(Ruddy David:)

Let’s see what happens before young David defeats Goliath the mixed; “He [David] took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones out of the brook and put them in his shepherd's [lunch] bag [a whole kid's skin slung from his shoulder], in his pouch, and his sling was in his hand, and he drew near the Philistine. The Philistine came on and drew near to David, the man who bore the shield going before him. And when the Philistine looked around and saw David, he scorned and despised him, for he was but an adolescent, with a healthy reddish color and a fair face (I Samuel 17:40-42 amp).”

The trusty King James Version says that Goliath; “disdained him: for he was a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance” further establishing that David was directly descended from Adam whose name means “ruddy (#H120).” The second witness to David’s Saxon roots is found in his election by the prophet Samuel; “He [David] was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to (I Samuel 16:12).” These aspects need to be brought to the forefront because many false prophets like to attack the ‘whiteness’ of God’s chosen people or the very Christian faith that Caucasians have defended since its establishment.

Nevertheless, according to E. W. Bullinger’s tremendous book Number in Scripture, in the Bible the number five is representative of Yahweh’s own ‘grace’ so these selected stones were significant of David’s own ‘weakness’ complemented by Yahweh’s own divine strength. David was much stronger for God’s perfect cause in this state of ‘limitation’ than in all the heavy armor of Saul or man’s dissimilar kingdom. In the process of this story we learn that God’s people should lean only to Yahweh and not to man’s erroneous government nor devices. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Here’s what Goliath barks; “The Philistine said to David, Am I a dog, that you should come to me with sticks? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. The Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field. Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied (I Samuel 17:43-45 amp).”

Cursing righteous David by Philistine “gods” is an almost comical aspect of this narrative because there is none more powerful than Yahweh, God eternal (Ephesians 3:11). Yahweh “standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods (Psalm 82:1)” and later David would write; “I know that Yahweh is great, and that our Lord is above all gods (Psalm 135:5).” By examining David's faithful outlook we should be able to see why he was a man after God's own heart (I Samuel 13:14).

(Goliath Beheaded:)

David continues; “This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head. And I will give the corpses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord's, and He will give you into our hands (I Samuel 17:46-47 amp).”

We should pay attention to the fact that David clearly told his enemy Goliath; “I will smite you and cut off your head.” I can imagine very few pulpits across the country ever speak on these latter verses very much if they ever get around to reading the Bible at all. The battle always belongs to Yahweh because He is considered a man of war (Exodus 15:3) and one with Jesus (John 10:30) who is “God in the Flesh (I Timothy 3:16).” Faithful David knew his God and that Goliath had nothing to contend with.

This part's really great, David runs up on Goliath; “When the Philistine came forward to meet David, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet the Philistine. David put his hand into his bag and took out a stone and slung it, and it struck the Philistine, sinking into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck down the Philistine and slew him. But no sword was in David's hand (I Samuel 17:48-50 amp).”

It's worthy of note that David used only one stone to drop Goliath and it was sufficient enough because our God is one (Mark 12:29) as I previously stated. Indeed, there was no sword in David's hand because he landed the giant Goliath by planting a single solitary stone straight between his enemy's ogre eyes. Who's the head again? Most people are familiar with this chronicle from children’s stories but we should all pay attention to what the weaponless David does next.

This is what happens after young David defeats Goliath the mixed; “So he ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath, and killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw that their mighty champion was dead, they fled. And the men of Israel and Judah rose with a shout and pursued the Philistines as far as Gath and the gates of Ekron. So the wounded Philistines fell along the way from Shaaraim as far as Gath and Ekron. The Israelites returned from their pursuit of the Philistines and plundered their tents (I Samuel 17:51-53 amp).”

The young David runs up to the collapsed Goliath and quickly lops his head off with his own sword causing the heathen Philistines to flee in horror. The Israelites give chase cleaning up the left behind Philistines while enjoying ‘the spoils of war’ by looting the Philistines’ tents. Following this epic moment of conquest, king Saul asks his cousin to bring him young David so; “Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand (I Samuel 17:57 amp).”

This isn’t the only time someone is beheaded in the Holy Bible. Who could forget John the Immerser? A dishonest butler’s head was removed under command of Joseph by Pharaoh and placed on an evergreen bush until ravenous birds gradually devoured it (Genesis 40:19). Sisera had his head nailed to the ground by Jael and then “she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples (Jdg 5:26).” A certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head and broke his skull (Judges 9:53) and Yahweh chops the false ‘god’ Dagon’s head off leaving only a stump (1 Samuel 5:4).


Christian brethren, my full objective will be given in the second part to It Shall Bruise Thy Head and in that conclusion, I'll be proving that Jesus is the Head of all things so we should never hearken to some universal church nor allow the Body of Christ to be leavened by the politics of man. There are far too many cults in the world that teach against the simple commands of the Bible and most times their true agenda is directed towards keeping their believers in some form of bondage.

If believers continue to follow the Law; “Yahweh shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13)” but if we continue to allow the enemy to charge us usury and steal our homeland; “he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail (Deuteronomy 28:44).” As Christians, we should always fight to never allow men to make slaves of God's Israel people, not spiritually, physically nor doctrinally. War for Christ! Amen.
