Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
EVE WILL BEAR A SON, EVENTUALLY BRINGING THE MESSIAH
Adam AND Eve were about to be expelled from the garden of Eden after they broke God’s command and ate the forbidden fruit. One exemplarily characteristic of the loving heavenly Father is that He always gives hope, even when giving correction. Here God promises Adam and Eve will give birth to a child, and through that child’s lineage eventually the Messiah will come. Now we have the promise of His return and all the government will be under Him.
