The seed of delivery for mankind was declared from the very beginning. When God punished Adam, Eve and satan it was prophecied that the seed of the woman would bruise the head of the serpent.
Consider the process as recorded to protect the Seed. Hundreds, perhaps over 1000 years later He finds the one faithful man in Abraham. One man and his wife. One man's faithfulness preserved the seed of man when the earth had become so wicked that God was sorry that He even created mankind. But for one man none of us would be here! Noah found grace in the eyes of God. Those eyes that are all encompassing. In Ezekiel's vision of the wheel within a wheel, it was encompassed with eyes that saw in every possible direction. He observes affairs among the son's and daughter's of men; always.
Consider the tens of thousands of babies that were alive and born when the Children of Israel were in Egypt in the time of Moses. One little Hebrew baby put in a boat of bulrushes, found by a daughter of Pharoah, protected from death while the other male children were killed. And Christ Himself as an infant having to flee again to Egypt with his parents from certain death decreed for all children in the Bethlehem area. The seed is still protected.
This must drive satan absoultely mad! In the Book of Esther Haman again seeks the destruction of all Jews in the Kingdom; a massive area that included Egypt, northern Africa, all of the Mideast that even extends to India! Still one little Jewish girl, Queen Esther in the court of the King interceeds for the Jews in the kingdom. The seed, still protected by God.
And here we are today in 2011. We are also the protected seed. All Believers are called the Children of God. He is our Father. When we start feeling all alone and in great danger think of the record of protection that God offers those who love and serve Him. He is faithful and true. Never have one of His promises been broken.
This Christmas Holiday think of that one little seed, the Baby Jesus, protected from certain destruction by His Father and our Father, His God and our God.
