Crusher of the ‘serpents’ head and what deception is ahead

Mike Gendron had much of the following in his March 2017 newsletter:

Who Crushes the Serpent’s Head? by John Fallahee

In Genesis 3:15, the Douay-Rheims translation, used by Roman Catholics, reads as follows, “I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.” Other English translations say, “it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” or “He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

To complicate matters further, Pope Pius X wrote the following, “Adam, the father of mankind, looked to Mary crushing the serpent’s head, and he dried the tears that the malediction had brought into his eyes.” Pope John Paul II later writes, “And so, there comes into the world a Son, “the seed of the woman,” who will crush the evil of sin in its very origins: “he will crush the head of the serpent…Mary, Mother of the Incarnate Word, is placed at the very center of that enmity, that struggle which accompanies the history of humanity on earth and the history of humanity itself.” One priest, Father Echert from, attempts to explain this clear contradiction as follows, “So in these two writings of two great popes, we see the fact that it is Offspring which is Christ by which the Mother of God crushes the serpent. As with all that may be said of Mary, she and her Son are intimately bound in the work of Redemption.” So what is the correct understanding of Genesis 3:15? Who will crush the serpent’s head? Christ, or Mary, or both?

Read my article to see how the verse is translated correctly using the original Hebrew text:


Let’s take a closer look at the third phrase in Genesis 3:15 “He shall bruise you on the head” (NASB95). This passage begins with a pronoun “He.”  However, if you look at various English translations, you will see there are quite a few variations on this first pronoun. Below I have included several early English translations for you to see firsthand the variety. …

When it comes to the salvation of man, there is one mediator between God and Men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5). There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

Will Mary Be Elevated to Co-Redeemer?

The Marian Association has requested Pope Francis to grant public recognition and honor to the Blessed Virgin Mary as “co-redemptrix” with Jesus. The association believes that “a public acknowledgement of Mary’s true and continuous role with Jesus in the saving work of redemption would justly celebrate the role of humanity in God’s saving plan; foster greater devotion to the mother of God; and lead to the release of historic graces through an even more powerful exercise of our lady’s maternal roles of intercession for the Church and for all humanity today.”
Mike Gendron told Christian News Network that the Roman Catholic religion often attributes many of Christ’s characteristics to Mary. They teach that both are our advocates, and both were conceived without sin and lived sinless lives. Catholicism teaches that Jesus is the source of grace while Mary is the channel of all grace; Jesus is the Mediator while Mary is the Mediatrix; Jesus ascended into glory and Mary’s body was assumed into glory; Jesus is the King of Heaven and Mary is the Queen of Heaven; Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and Mary is the Queen of peace. Nowhere in Scripture is Mary referred to as co-redeemer or co-mediatrix.  It was the Lord Jesus, not Mary, who gave His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). It was Jesus, not Mary, who redeemed those who were once slaves to sin and Jesus who purchased their freedom. Jesus gave Himself to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are his very own (Titus 2:14). Mary never gave her life, or shed her blood, or became a curse to ransom anyone. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (Gal. 3:13). Jesus bought us with His own blood (Acts 20:28). Christians are redeemed with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect (1 Pet. 1:18-19).
Gendron concluded the interview by saying, “For anyone to refer to Mary as co-redemptrix not only violates the truth of God’s Word, it also dishonors the Lord Jesus Christ and robs Him of the glory, honor, and praise that He alone deserves.

(PTG, March 2017)

Mary is NOT the one to crush the serpent’s head, Jesus is.

Mary is also NOT a co-redemptrix. Even a Catholic translation of the Bible teaches:

5 For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus: 6 Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times.(1 Timothy 2:5-6, DRB)

The biblical fact that there is ONE mediator, who is Jesus, means that there is not another, like Mary. This historically has been the teaching in the true Church of God (and this was also confirmed, for example, in 1705 via William Gibson, September 8, 1705; Cited in Dugger AN, Dodd CO, pp. 275-277).

The Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma states in its section about Mary being the Mediatrix, “Express scriptural proofs are lacking” (Ott, p. 214).

Despite what the Bible teaches, we are likely to see more Marian steps taken this year.

May 13, 2017 will mark the 100th anniversary of the day three young children claimed to see a “the Lady” in Fatima, Portugal.

Notice something from a late Catholic priest related to some of this:

“She shall crush thy head,” meaning the Woman will crush. And so when Our Lady of Fatima says “Only I can help you,” in a certain sense, not even God can help us, “but only I”.  Does that sound almost blasphemous …

World Peace Absolutely Will Only Come Through the Immaculate Heart of Mary

At Fatima we are told that the peace of the world has been entrusted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. So peace in the world would not come about any other way except through the merits and the graces of Our Lady, and the acknowledgement of the same by mankind. That is why Our Lady can say in truth and literally, “Only I can help you.” She actually spoke of Herself in this case, in the third person, “Only She can help you.” But She was speaking of Our Lady of the Rosary. “Only She can help you.” (Gruner N. The Calm Before the Storm Part III. Fatima Crusader. Autumn 1998)

No, that does not sound ALMOST blasphemous, but ACTUALLY is blasphemous. Real peace will come about by the return of Jesus and the establishment of the Kingdom of God. Not from ‘Mary.’

Yet, various ones keep pointing to ‘Mary’ and Fatima.

Pope Francis has entrusted his pontificate to his version of ‘Mary.’ He also asked Cardinal José Policarpo of Lisbon to dedicate his pontificate to ‘Our Lady of Fatima’ back in 2013.

Furthermore, Pope Francis has also pushed for more veneration of “the Lady of Fatima,” including once bringing the ‘Fatima statue’ to Rome .

As part of a Marian Day vigil on October 12, 2013, Pope Francis said:

The statue of Our Lady, which has come from Fatima, helps us to feel her presence in our midst. Mary always brings us to Jesus…This evening, O Mary, we thank you for our faith, and we renew our entrustment to you, Mother of our faith.  (October 12, 2103

The next day he also consecrated the world to that statue.

Yet, according to Roman Catholic priests, that statue as well as what appeared at Fatima in 2017 did NOT claim to be Jesus’ Mother Mary and wore clothing that was unacceptable for that time in Portugal.

Despite what the Bible teaches and the truth about Fatima, I expect more promotion of unbiblical ‘Marian’ concepts this year. This is not good.

Mary was not prophesied to crush Satan’s head, Jesus was. Furthermore, Jesus, not Mary is the one mediator.
