The New Testament echoes the same promise: "He [God] is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him" (Hebrews 11:6). In communicating Himself and His will, God balances subjective evidence with objective proof. The Bible records God's provision of many tangible signs to those who wanted to know Him and His will. To "put out a fleece" is a common expression that is understood worldwide. It comes from Gideon's use of a sheep's fleece to be certain of God's will. Placing it on the ground overnight, he asked God for two signs: dew on the fleece and not on the ground one morning, then dew on the ground but not on the fleece the next (Judges 6:36-40).
Jewish Lineage of the Messiah Genesis 3:15 gives us the first promise of the Messiah's coming and explains the purpose: to destroy Satan and to rescue mankind from God's judgment. Nine chapters later we learn that the virgin-born "seed of the woman" will be a descendant of Abraham (12:3). How else could a blessing come to "all the families of the earth" except through the Messiah? Next we learn that through Isaac's lineage all the world will be blessed (Genesis 26:4); then we are told it will be through the seed of Jacob (28:14).
It also defies any ordinary explanation. Such continual abuse at the hands of their fellow man was a perpetual reminder that, though chosen of God and greatly beloved, they had sinned and were under His judgment. It was also a reminder of something else equally remarkable—that Satan was determined to destroy them. God had promised that His Messiah, the Savior of Israel and of the world, would come through these people. God's battle with Satan could only be won by the Messiah. He alone could wrest mankind from Lucifer's evil grasp.
