And between your seed and her Seed;

And you shall bruise His heel.
It’s said that this single verse could be sued as a subscript for the entire Bible. Why? It covers three very important things thousands of years apart.
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live.” And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.

- Over a thousand years later Moses brings forth a cross with a snake upon for the Israelites in the WildernesS so that they can be SAVED from the death of SnakE bites by just gazing upon it. A snake on a cross but the symbol of a crucifix saves .

- In Revelation the Snake is cast down for 1000 years and stamped down to a Pit.
