â€śWhen Adam and Eve first heard the promise, they looked for its speedy fulfillment. They joyfully welcomed their first-born son, hoping that he might be the Deliverer. But the fulfillment of the promise tarried.â€ťâ€”Ellen G. White, The Desire of Ages, p. 31. The promise was later confirmed to Abraham. God swore to him that he would have a â€śseed,â€ť a Son through whom all the nations of the earth would be blessed (Gen. 22:16â€“18, Gal. 3:16). And God did the same with David. He promised David that his descendant would be installed by God as His own Son and would be established as a righteous ruler over all the kings of the earth (2 Sam. 7:12â€“14, Ps. 89:27â€“29). What neither Adam
and Eve, Abraham, nor David probably ever imagined, however, was that their Redeemer Son would be God Himself.
