    Gloria - childbirth is part of life; it always has been. I don't understand why you question it.

    I just got curious about the - serpent. Nowhere in the Bible is the word - snake. So, I th'ot - lots of reptiles crawl on their belly. Eve talked with the serpent so at that time he probably appeared to her as something she could handle in her mind - not 'scary'. satan was the 'Angel of Light' before being cast out - and still is, 2 Cor. 11:14. We do a lot of 'creating' in our minds about things.
  • Irene123
    " ... it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel". The first "it" is Jesus, on the cross, sin (satan) put Him there. When Jesus said, "It is finished" and DIED - then Jesus bruised satan's head. Jesus then had the power to enter hell and get the KEYS. He then could give those keys to Peter (spiritually) when Peter preached Acts 2:38, the 3 keys to salvation.
  • Gloria
    I know that Jesus, is our redemption, our savior, remission for our sins. On verse 16. Is that to do with child birth pain? If so why do we women still go through great sorrow during labor?
    Am I misunderstanding?
