5 And I will put enmity between you [serpent] and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He [a later seed (descendant) of the woman] shall bruise your head, [a later generation of the serpent's seed]. And you [serpent] shall bruise His [the woman's seed] heel.” Gen 3:15.

The seed of the woman is the Spirit of Jesus Christ, born of a woman, the seed of Eve.

The seed of the serpent is the selfish spirit in you, the sinful nature, the carnal mind.

The woman's seed Christ, was severely bruised when He tasted death for every man.

When you are purified, Jesus appears bringing you your salvation, the head of the serpent in you is crushed by Christ, thus to break his power and strength, and to destroy him and his works. (He, Christ, the seed of the woman, bruises the serpent's head in individual believers who carry their cross to purity.)

And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. Rom 16:20

From George Fox's Letter #172:

So everyone of us, that has come to the seed of God, that bruises the serpent's head, that led man from God, who is the prince of the world, the prince of darkness, and the prince of the air, the father of lies, a murderer from the beginning; the corrupter of mankind, the author of the separation from God, and the original of sin, the beginning of it, which led man from his dominion over the handiworks of God; which the royal seed Christ, destroys, and renews man again in the image of God, and brings him again to his dominion over the handiworks of God. And this hundreds of thousands are now witnessing; by which they come to be kings, and redeemed from the earth and come to be made kings upon the earth, in the image of God, over the handiworks of God, in the wisdom by which they were created....Among these Christ is king, which thousands witness. Among these he is king.

After your sinful nature has been crucified, Jesus appears [is revealed] in glory and power within you, to destroy the seed of the serpent. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy the works [sin] of the devil. 1 John 3:8. You become an entirely new creature; your soul is joined (married) with the Spirit of Christ to become one, [union] an entirely new creature. Before Christ is revealed, the man of sin, (the Spirit of Satan in you), is revealed within you, showing you all manner of evil on the earth; this is the abomination of desolation, standing in your heart's temple, where it should not. But this is the end of your fleshly self, as Christ then appears and slays the residual spirit of Satan within you by the brightness of his coming, by his breath, and the splendor of his coming, by his crushing the head of Satan under his [and your] heel. The final judgment. The true baptism of the Holy Spirit: into the death of Christ. The sharing of his death. Then the sharing of his resurrection in you.
