“And 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.
The first prophecy of the Bible is found in Genesis 3:15 and foretells that Satan’s head will be bruised by Eve’s seed which have their heel wounded or bruised.
satan’s seed = the devil’s spiritual offspring
Eve’s seed = her offspring (Lineage of David we are blessed with John 3:16 the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ our Savior!)
bruise = Genesis 3:15 is shuph (Strong’s #H7779)

God helps those who help the poor
2 Corinthians 1:3-(KJV) 3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
Does God really care about the poor?
Who else protects the poor and needy from those who want to rob them?
As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord is thinking of me right now.
He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them.
“I’ll just have to go blind”
A man was having a lot of trouble with his eyes. His doctor examined him and recommended the name of another doctor he should visit, saying, “I would advise you to go at once and take plenty of money with you, for it’s going to cost a lot.”
The man had eighty dollars in the bank, so he got his money and went to see the other doctor. After examining him, the doctor said, “I never accept less than five hundred dollars for this particular operation.”
“Well, then,” said the man, “I guess I’ll just have to go blind, because I have only eighty dollars.”
But the good doctor said, “There is one other way to solve our trouble. You don’t have enough to pay the bill, and I can’t charge you as little as eighty dollars, but there is another way open to us — I will do the operation for nothing.” And that is just what he did.
