Types of Christ in The Old Covenant: Adam Pt 1

image

Jn 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. (NKJV)

 The story of Eve being taken from Adam’s side is a type of Christ Jesus giving birth to the Church on the cross..

 Let’s look at some points:

 1) Adam Put To Sleep: Sleep in scripture speaks of death. When Christ died upon the cross, He was being cut off for you and I. He was experiencing death as a punishment for mankind’s sin.

 Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who for the suffering of death was crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. (NKJV)

We no longer have to fear death or fear being cut off from God for eternity.

 If we have fears regarding death, we need to meditate on the scriptures (below) until we receive a revelation that nothing can separate us from God.

 Rom 8:35,38.  Jn 10:28,29.  Heb 2:14,15.

 2) Blood Was Shed: When God (who was the first surgeon) took a rib from Adam’s side, blood was shed. God didn’t do this act haphazardly, it was His intended purpose.

 So upon the cross, Jesus shed His blood that you and I might experience the forgiveness and removal of our sin.

 There are some who use the expression, ‘Jesus spilled His blood.’ To spill something is accidental. To shed something is purposeful.

 Jesus shed blood was no accident. There was  purpose behind His actions. He wants us to know that He chose to go to the cross and shed His blood to reveal His purpose, which was to show His love for mankind through His salvation.

 3) Adam’s Bride Taken From His Side: God took a rib from Adam’s side from which He made Eve who would become ‘Mrs Adam’.

 Adam then called her, “Bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.” They were made for each other, hand inside glove, to flow together.

 When the soldier who was stood by the cross thrust his spear into Jesus side, He wasn’t to know he was triggering one of the most important actions in the history of mankind.

 Jn 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. (NKJV)

 Jesus gave birth to His bride, the Church:

 a)    The blood was shed from His side to cleanse His bride from All sin.

b)   The water (Eph 5:26) was symbolic of the word of God through which we would become born again.

We are now, bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh — we are now of Him, in Him and joined to Him as His bride.

1 Cor 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

 Now, He wants us to bring to Him every detail of our hearts the small details and the big details, for we are the apple of His eye

 4) The Resurrected Adam: Adam now arose from sleep to take his bride Eve. This is a picture of Jesus rising from the dead with resurrection life.

 In Christ we rise with Him to share in His resurrection life, but we have to ask ourselves the question: Do i know the Christ from before the cross – or do i know the Christ that came after the cross.

 It’s true that we can learn much from Jesus pre the cross – but it is post the cross where we experience His ‘LIFE’.

 We must especially read the letters of Paul to whom God gave the revelation of the risen Christ, in the Gospel of grace.

 Meditation Point: As part of the bride I now have access to the fulness of the resurrected life of Christ Jesus.
