A Foretelling Poem for Thought

Here a poem inspired via the reading of Genesis for thought.

He was from the beginning

To this one can't stop grinning
As Genesis 3:15 tells of Him
To know He was from the beginning

For her seed be Him in winning
Gave His life, fear of death then slim
To this one can't stop grinning

Although Jesus heel bruised pinning
Was Satan's power bruised and grim
To know He was from the beginning

Galatians 4:4-5 tells His story
As was the foretelling made known
From the beginning His glory

As He suffered temptation grown
But for us as Hebrews 2:14-18 shows
The power of fear of death now blown

For He is and was as one knows
To this one can't stop grinning
Revelation 1:18 brings this to a close
To know He was from the beginning

Inspiration: 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" (NKJV). References: "her Seed" Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:4-5). "he shall bruise your head" Satan's power over man's fear of death and bondage through sin through His (Jesus) victory over the grave (Hebrews 2:14-18). "you shall bruise his heel" less fatal blow Satan dealt to Jesus through His crucifixion.  He is and was from the beginning (Revelation 1:18).
