Types of Christ in The Old Covenant: Adam Pt 2

Ps 8:5You have crowned them with glory and honour. (NIV)

When God created Adam and Eve, He clothed them with His own glory and light!

Ps 104:1,2  Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with glory and honour. You wear light like a robe. (ERV)

 It was this glory that allowed Adam and Eve to live in the immediate presence of God. But the moment they sinned, God’s covering or garment of glory broke off of them.

 Rom 3:23 All have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23 NABRE)

 Rom 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23 NKJV)

 Adam and Eve for their own safety, and to prevent them eating the fruit from the tree of life were now locked outside the presence of God.

 Mankind could now only worship God from a distance!

 The Glory Restored In Christ

 Rom 5:14 Adam was a type (prefigure) of the One Who was to come [in reverse, the former destructive, the Latter saving]. (AMP)

 Christ took the punishment for our sin on the cross and died in our place and went down into the grave. But when He rose from the dead, the first born of a new creation, perfectly righteous, He ascended to heaven, sat down on the throne at the right hand of the Father, and there the Father crowned Him as a man with the same glory that Adam forfeited in the garden  . Praise the Lord!

 Now that you and I are, ‘In Christ’, we  have been crowned as Kings with the same glory as Jesus. This entitles us once again to not only go into the immediate presence of God, but to remain there for all eternity.

 Now, nothing, not sin, unrighteousness, failure or mistakes can remove us from God’s immediate presence. Why! Because the blood of Christ eternally flows down upon us like a fountain, cleansing us from all sin and preserving our righteousness and perfection before the Father.

 There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel’s veins,

And sinners plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains. (Hymn by William Cowper)

 Hence we no longer have to come into the presence of God because we have never left. Instead we come before His throne to receive His grace in a time of need.

 Heb 4:16 Let us, then, feel very sure that we can come before Gods throne where there is grace. There we can receive mercy and grace to help us when we need it. (NCV)

 Now we no longer worship God from a distance but live in His presence 24/7. He enjoys being with us and we can enjoy being with Him.

 The next time we sin or fall short, let’s not remain in the outer court of God’s presence as a form of penance but realise we are accepted as we are because of the cleansing blood of Christ.

 We can now come boldly before Him asking for His help and grace to overcome our weaknesses and sins. What a privilege!

 Meditation Point: I am crowned with God’s glory and live 24/7 in His presence!
