The First Biblical Prophecy About Christmas

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 (Genesis 3:15 KJV)

Christmas, a fitting commemoration of the birth of Jesus, was first predicated in the garden of Eden after the fall—a prophecy without a prophet!

After pronouncing the divine sentence against Adam’s sin, the Lord lit a glimmer of light in the darkness that shone brighter and brighter until the first Christmas Day. He lit that light by giving His Word, an eternal, infallible divine promise to the fallen human race in Genesis 3:15, promising the coming of the woman’s seed that will bruise Satan’s head.

The words “her seed” were a hint that a child will be born by the woman, and that child will crush Satan’s head though Satan will bruise His heel (the cross). Thus, Genesis 3:15 is the first explicit prophetic word registered in the scriptures; it was unique because there was no prophet, as we know from Israel’s history. God spoke directly to Adam, who most likely relayed the promise to his children through oral tradition.

It is no accident that the first prophecy is about Jesus. First, the Bible is about Him, for “in the volume of the book it is written of me” (Hebrews 10:7, KJV). Similarly, in the last chapter of the Bible (Revelations 22), we find Jesus and the Tree of life, restating the themes of Genesis 3. Second, the first prophecy in the Bible is about Jesus because “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10): the truth about Jesus is the substance of prophecy.

So the earthly divine preparations for Christmas began in Eden shortly after the Fall. 


How did Satan and hell respond to this first prophecy?

Apply The Word

Christmas is a celebration of prophecy fulfilled, the faithfulness of God, and a reminder that Christ has crushed Satan’s head, as God said in Genesis 3:15. Celebrate Jesus! 


Thank the Father for His unchanging faithfulness to His Word.

  1. Brother, I would love to agree with you on your teaching, However, the bible does not command us to worship(celebrate) Christmas (a pagan representational day). This is and always has been a pagan act. Unfortunately, this is bad teaching in the church and it will be sending so many into the Lake of Fire. No, we should not be participating in the practices and lies of the “Christmas Season”.
    Do you celebrate the different types of Bibles out there? After all, they are the inspired word of God, which is Jesus. No, That would be absolute foolishness and antichrist in its application as well as idolatry. These pagan worship practices are the same. We are commanded to remember the communion, that is direct from Yeshua, however it is not from the manner of pagan devise or worship of a day and such.
    Please brother, repent of this fallacy and ask the Holy Spirit to renew your heart and mind. I love you in Christs name and although we disagree in this teaching at current, I will continue to follow your site for other teachings that are on the mark.

    1. Hello Chris. Thank for sharing your insights on this topic. Yes, some people have different views about celebrating Christmas. Celebrating Christmas or not Celebrating Christmas has no effect on your salvation, no effect on your relationship with God and no effect on how God sees you. Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus.
      This is your argument: Christians should not celebrate Christmas because it began as a pagan celebration.
      It is very likely that you celebrate birthdays, and I guess you probably know the pagan roots of this celebration.
      You use the internet and you probably do not care that the same internet is used in billions of ways to perpetrate evil and demonic activities.
      You surely eat chicken, and you probably know that it is being used consistently in demonic sacrifices.

      Reading your comment, your attitude is more glaring that the argument you are making.
      You are making very bold claims to people you do not even know. For instance, celebrating Christmas sends people to hell. I wonder where you got something like this from.

      There is a way you talk to people with love and respect even if you do not agree with them.
      That is called the fruit of the Spirit. It is the mature Character of a Christian controlled by the Holy Spirit.
      Even if you were correct, your attitude is so un-Christlike that I cannot listen to what you are saying.

      Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Whether it was started by pagans or not, whether we know the exact day Jesus was born or not, the birth of the Jesus is an event the entire world needs to pause and rejoice about.
      If we were celebrating something demonic, that would be a different story.
      If you do not want to celebrate Christmas, it is perfectly fine. Celebrating or not celebrating makes no difference with God. If you celebrate, He still loves you.
      If you choose not to celebrate, Her will loves you.
      Just allow the Spirit guide you in relating with Christians( fellow children of God like you) who disagree on a minor issue like this and let love, honor and respect reign.
      Blessings there brother.
