Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you - Satan and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it - her seed [Jesus] shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

Number one, this verse is what John 1:14 was referring to: And the word [which God had spoken about the woman's seed - Jesus] was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

As we see from the biblical revelation Satan did indeed bruise the heal of Jesus - which result was the the Jesus was crucified. Scripture also says that the seed of the woman - Jesus shall bruise the head of Satan and that will happen when he is caste into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:10 and the Devil - the Adversary - Satan, who is leading them astray, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are the beast and the false prophet, and they shall be tormented day and night — to the ages of the ages.

From the time that God spoke Genesis 3:15 all those that were His looked forward for the one to come, the coming one, who did come and that happened when Jesus was born of a woman under that law.

Galatians 4::4: But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His son, made of a woman, made under the law.
