NOT a seed of the woman
We have here in Leviticus 24 an interesting story about a guy who curses the name of the Lord. Intriguing about this story is that Moses describes the guy as being the son of an Israelite woman and an Egyptian man. Why record that? Why would Moses want his readers to know that?
To give us an early hint in the story that this guy was *not* a seed of the woman. Though he was an Israelite, he revealed himself not to be a seed of the woman, but rather a seed of the serpent. That his dad was an Egyptian - a people who are consistently opposed to God - reveals that this guy was not what he seemed to be.
Today, there are people in the church who are not what they seem to be. Though they are outwardly associated with God's people, their sinful, unrepentant hearts reveal them to be what they truly are: the seed of the serpent.
