Quote:

Before the Christian Church goes into eclipse anywhere there must first be a corrupting of her simple basic theology.  She simply gets a wrong answer to the question, “what is God like?” and goes on from there.  Though she may continue to cling to a sound nominal creed, her practical working creed  has become false.  The masses of her adherents come to believe that God is different from what He actually is; and that is heresy of the most insidious and deadly kind.  – A. W. Tozer from The Knowledge of the Holy

Quote:

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.
– Genesis 3:15

Reading to you these words, I may address you in the language of the holy angels to the shepherds that were watching their flocks by night, ‘Behold, I bring you glad tidings of great joy.’ For this is the first promise that was made of a Saviour to the apostate race of Adam. We generally look for Christ only in the New Testament. But Christianity, in one sense, is very near as old as the creation. It is wonderful to observe how gradually God revealed his Son to mankind. He began with the promise in the text and this the elect lived upon till the time of Abraham. To him, God made further discoveries of his eternal council concerning man’s redemption. Afterwards, at sundry times and in divers manners, God spoke to the fathers by the prophets, till at length the Lord Jesus himself was manifested in flesh and came and tabernacled amongst us. – George Whitefield
