Nails At The Crucifixion Hammered Into Jesus' Heel

God pronounced relentless battle between Satan
and the woman's seed between your seed her seed Genesis 3: 15.
in life battle Satan would 'bruise him on the heel.'
nails at the crucifixion hammered into Jesus' heel

Satan bruises his heel
God so ordered it
the salvation of man
could only be brought
by the death of Christ

even the spiritual seed
of our blessed Lord
are often heel bruised
we suffer persecution
temptation from Satan

the promised seed suffers but no destructive blow
'When the fullness of the time came, God sent
forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law' Galatians 4: 4.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
