In the bible, the book of Genesis accounts how God created man on the sixth day and placed him in the Garden of Eden. God's original plan was for humanity to enjoy abundance, beauty and ultimately to live forever. This is clearly depicted by the idyllic setting of the garden, the fertility of the soil, the fruits all over, the two rivers of clean water and the harmony that Adam had with the wild animals.
Despite of all these wonderful plans and blessing of God, man was unable to be good enough and went against the will of God. In Genesis chapter 12, God had instructed man to enjoy and eat fruits from all the trees in the garden except the fruits from the tree at the middle of the garden; the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Unfortunately, they ate the fruit of the tree they had been warned against after being confused by the Satan (snake). And that was the fall of man. The snake's initial plan to cause man to be sent away from the Garden prevailed, but Gods faithfulness still endured. God still wanted to bring man back to the garden and so he needed a snake crusher.
How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden
Jesus is the snake crusher. God wanted a sacrifice that will bring man back to His first love. On earth, no man was righteous enough to be the sacrificial lamb to bring man back to the Garden; that state of abundance, joy, prosperity and finally enjoy eternal life. So because of God's great Love for man (John 3.16), He sent His only begotten son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
After so many prophecies about the birth of Jesus and restoration of mankind, Jesus finally came and died on the crossed for our sins. He was (1 Corinthians 15: 4) crucified, died, buried and on the 3rd day He rose from the dead with power and majesty by having overcome and crushed the snake (Satan) in hell. 'How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden', gives a good story from Genesis all through to Revelation how the snake (Satan) wanted to steal us away from God and finally how God through his unfailing love sends Jesus (The Snake crusher) to bring us back to the Garden.
In john 8:36 the bible says that whoever son sets free is free indeed. This mean, through the salvation of Christ, we were set free indeed- in other words, completely brought back into the Garden. And finally (Rev 20.10) the devil who deceived man will be thrown to the lake of burning fire and the man will enjoy eternal life just as God intended.
