Whom Do Men Say That Adam Is
How could something that happened way back
in the Garden of Eden be important to the Church today?
And why should we even care who Adam was, especially when there is almost nothing said about him. And have
we not been taught that as Christians we are no longer of Adam
but we are of Christ.
It is important when the men who tell us who
Adam is are our pastor, our church and our denomination because
these serve as a filter, they are a darkened glass obscuring
the events which took place in The Garden, obscuring the events
of The Fall, obscuring the need of sacrifices, and ultimately obscuring the need of Christ’s
sacrifice and our need to partake of Holy Communion.
So we need to ask: Whom do men say Adam is?
Some teach that God created this little garden plot and he created
Adam and Eve as gardeners, and they somehow sinned and lost
the Garden. Some teach
that Adam was created from the dust of the earth and God breathed
on the dirt and Adam became a living soul – but that this Adam
did not have the living Spirit of God in him – they also teach
we only receive that living spirit when we become Born of the
Spirit or Born Again. Others teach that when God breathed on the
dust that he had formed Adam had a Living Soul and a Living
Spirit, but that the Spirit in him died at the fall and that
the spirit of man only comes alive after one is Born of the
Spirit or Born Again. And still others teach that God was bored
with the angels and God was lonely so He created Adam for fellowship
and through sin that relationship was lost, In the day Adam
sinned Adam died spiritually, it just took his body caught up
with that spiritual death almost 1000 years. And that only comes
when one is Born of the Spirit or Born Again.
When we look at these views we need to note
the commonality. All cite the same tenants which tells me they
have all read the same notes and commentaries – the areas that
they differ is on why Adam was created, whether he had both
a soul and a spirit and what was lost in the fall. None of these
answer the question of who Adam is. They are unable to answer
that question because their commentaries, study notes, and traditions,
that have been handed down to them are silent on the subject.
Part of the answer is that Adam is the son
. . . Adam, which was the son of God.
So God creates the creation: the stars, planets,
the earth, the sea, all the trees, and plants, all the animals,
all the fish, all the birds, and He creates this garden, and
in this garden God forms himself a son from the dust of the
earth forms it into his image and likeness and breathes his
breath into this dust.
A renowned bible teacher recently wrote: “Dust
speaks of dependency. It is impossible to form anything from
will take moisture, the very life of our Lord Jesus Christ -
that which flows from the Vine into the branch, for that “dust”
to have any form, shape, or purpose.
Thus, Adam had to come to the tree of life “often” in
order to maintain his life.”
derivation of this notion of dry, powdery, dust is from KJV
translation of a word that was written in the Hebrew.
The English word is “Dust.” Dust in English is a dried out fine powder
that is easily airborne. The
Hebrew word for dust is APAR: that can be translated “dust,” “earth,” or
“soil in any form.”
3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,
till thou return unto the ground (DAMA – earth or soil) ; for out of it wast thou taken: for
dust (APAR) thou
art, and unto dust (APAR)
shalt thou return.
So we can clearly see that the “Dust of Adam”
was not road dust, ashes, or some other fine dried out powder. Adam was created from dirt, or more specifically
Adam was created from the red soil or red clay.
Adam is an untranslated Hebrew word,
which means the Red Earth or Ruddy
(red) Skin Color. Adam is derived from
the word DAMA
which means red earth or red
And the LORD God formed (YASAR to form, to shape, to fashion,
to create. This word YASAR is translated Potter 10 times) man (HEB. ADAM) of
the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath
of life; and man became a living soul.
So on a second level we see that the
concept of dry dust is not what God used because Scripture says
God first form Adam, God first shaped
Adam God first molded
Adam as a master
potter creates a vessel and after God shaped formed and molded
Adam – He then breaths into Adam the breath of life.
we see that this assertion made about the dust of Adam “Dust
speaks of dependency. It is impossible to form anything from
dust.” Is inherently flawed when actually look at
the scripture itself.
another critical part of the answer as to who Adam is; is that
Adam is dirt – specifically common every day dirt
bible does not tell us that Adam was formed from the choicest
dirt in the whole world. It does not say that Adam was formed
from some special dirt or magic dust. It does not say that Adam
was formed from purest gold, or that God selected diamonds and
jewels from which he formed the man Adam. Scripture says God
formed man out of common dirt.
would God go through all the trouble of creating things for
six days and them make the crowning achievement of creation
out of dirt?
answer can be seen in what this dirt was supposed to do.
first Adam was made of no reputation – we can see this in Adam
as he was created out of common Dirt.
(He – the second and last Adam) made Himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the
likeness of men:
we read this we need to realize that when Paul called Christ
the second and last Adam Paul
was telling us that Adam and Christ had a lot more in common
in their life and calling than being in a sinless original state.
I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and
the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man (Hebrew
ADAM), that thou art mindful of him? and the son of
man (Heb. ADAM),
that thou visitest him? For
thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast
crowned him with glory and honor.
is speaking of the creation and he says: What is this man you
created of common dirt (Adam) what is this dirt (Adam) that
he is continually on your mind? Or the sons of the fallen man
(Adam) you created from the dirt that you continually visit
them? You made Adam a little lower than the angels and yet you
have crowned him with Glory and Honor. (Above the angels) We see that David is pondering this creation
of the common Adam that is crowned with glory and honor above
the angels and David can’t quite understand it.
what David just in mind now look at the first and second chapter
1: 4-6 Being made so much
better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a
more excellent name than they.
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my
Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to
him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world,
he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
have to bring the first Adam and the Second Adam into play here.
In verse 4 we see that Christ the second Adam being made so
much better than angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained
a more excellent name than Angels. Christ was born in the flesh
as the second Adam a little lower than the angels and He was
to obtain an inheritance but he did not. Now look at verse 6
being created a little lower than the angels when he brought
the first begotten into the world the first and second Adams
He said let the angels of God worship him. It would appear that
the writer of Hebrews is intimating the reason for Satan and
the other angels rebellion from the beginning. It was because
of something that God had created from common dirt – something
of no reputation that we esteemed not and then he ordered his
angels to worship it, and little later in Hebrews we read:
Hebrews 1:13-14 But to which
of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until
I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not
all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who
shall be heirs of salvation?
it appears that the angels the greater beings were supposed
to worship this common dirt of no reputation and that they were
to minister unto Adam and Christ.
interestingly enough on the second temptation of Christ in the
wilderness the devil comes quoting another scripture: One concerning
that the angels of God have been charged with ministering to
the first begotten of God.
Matthew 4:5-7 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city,
and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto
him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is
written, He shall give his
angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall
bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a
stone. Jesus said unto
him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy
This temptation would seem
to mean if you jump the angels have been commanded to protect
you. – So if you are who you are supposed to be lets verify
that by you jumping and seeing if God can make me save you?
What is going on
here is a match of who is subject to whom. The Devil is saying
that if you really are the Christ you can prove your authority
over me by tossing yourself over he edge and God will force
me to be your servant to save you. The temptation was a real
one the Devil challenged Christ to make the father put the devil
in his place. And instead Christ answered with a stinging rebuke
that probably referred like the first answer he gave in the
first temptation back to something the first Adam said or should
have said in the garden.
I see this morning for the first time 3/22/05 is that the rebellion
in heaven was over that the angels were supposed to worship
the first begotten of the father. And that they angels were
to humble themselves and serve this dirt of no reputation that
we did not esteem as anything. – And those angels that followed
the devil did so to receive worship from men, and to subjugate
men, pulling a full reversal. And the serpent their leader achieved
this goal in the garden. The story of redemption is that so
loved the first Adam that he sent His Son in as the second Adam
to redeem the lost first Adam and his corrupted seed that those
who would believe, and imitate Christ specifically in selflessly
trying to redeem others even at the cost of their lives – these
and only these would receive of Christ’s portion and these fallen
angels along with the angels of God would be put in subjection
to them once again as had been commanded in the beginning.
Hebrews 2:5-11 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection
the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified,
saying; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the son
of man that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower
than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and
didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all
things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all
in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under
him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for
the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that
he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For
it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many
sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect
through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who
are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed
to call them brethren.
greatest error of those in the word of faith movement is the
declaration that the kingdom of Christ is an earthly kingdom
here and now. And that in salvation our duty is to put things
(read the saved and unsaved) under his feet. While the command
is to become redeemers becoming imitators of Christ in laying
down your lives for those who could care less, or those who
Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last
Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them
that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression,
who is the figure of him that was to come.
key question is: How is Adam the sinful gardener a figure of
Him to come? Or better yet: How is Adam the one who imparted
sin and death to the entire world a figure of Christ?
Romans 8:21-23 Because
the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage
of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth
in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves
also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves
groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the
redemption of our body.
was the first fruits of the glorious liberty that the children
of God and the whole of creation were to experience. Adam was
to humble himself and be a servant of no reputation, but as
we know things went wrong and Adam got off track and instead
of being the glory and crown he ended up instead turning the
entire creation over to corruption.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29 But God hath chosen the foolish things
of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak
things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised,
hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to
nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
We can see that this verse that speaks of what believers are to be,
we can see also this verse clearly speaks of what Christ was,
but it also speaks of what Adam was called to be. as well. No
dirt shall glory, boast, or exalt itself in His presence.
So it would appear that from the beginning God was intent on Adam
to confound – satan and his angels. How was Adam one who was
born of dirt to confound the devil and his angels and to take
the promised dominion over them? Adam was to have done it like Christ did it.
Adam was to have humbled himself as a servant. And I would even
dare say unto death, Adam
was not to have loved his life unto death.
The dominion, glory, and honor, were to only come out
of humility. Not a “said”
“spoken” or “boasted” humility, but by a humility of deed of the heart and soul – a humility demonstrated in the flesh.
Genesis 2:19-20 And out of the ground the LORD God
formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air;
and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and
whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name
thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl
of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there
was not found an help meet for him.
God and Adam worked side by side in the garden. – This is different
from later in scripture where God visiting Adam in the cool
of the day. We see here that God would form a creature
from the earth (from the very same earth He had formed Adam,
and He gave them also life. And then God would bring what he
had just created to Adam to see what Adam would call it. – This
is a picture of father with a child. A child that squeals with
delight over each next thing that God creates. A child that
can hardly contain himself as the Father creates exciting creature
after exciting creature. Small note Garden of Eden means Garden
of delights – we think always of ourselves and so man say it
was a garden of men’s delights. No I say to you this was the
Garden of God’s delights and where his creation delighted in
the bible says God was looking for a helper for Adam a partner
a friend a helper not necessarily a mate. And so Adam had to
speak and fellowship with the animals and birds and other creatures.
I see once again Adam the son – the Adam child of God,
conversing fellowshipping and playing with this dog, this horse
this bird and over the course of time Adam then named it. --
and once Adam determines that this creature cannot be his help-meet,
his trial assistant, the animal is then released and the process
began anew. We as humans still bear a tendency towards pets.
Dogs, cats, fish, birds, horses, wolves, there is yet in man
a desire in us to pet, to speak to, and to try to befriend these
animals. This desire crosses all nations all borders all cultures
and all languages.
But you see Adam grew up over time, and even
though Adam had all this quality time with his Father – It would
seem that Adam started to notice the other animals frolicking,
mating, and having offspring, and within Adam there grows this
desire to have more than a side kick, or best friend to assistant
him in his daily duties. –
So Adam begins to have a strong desire to have a mate,
of his own kind, and to have offspring of his own as he would
have had seen with in all the creation around him.
bible says a day with the Lord is as a thousand years three
years of this would put the number of days at around a thousand
days and a thousand, thousand is a million years there is no
time in the garden Adam could have done this with God for 3
years 30 or even 300 years. I am not a fan of evolution or the
gap theory and have no care to try to coincide with any of their
tables charts of graphs. I just am saying I see a vast period
of time to form and name all the species of animals and plants
believe that not only was Adam told to be fruitful and populate
and subdue the earth but the animals, fish, and birds, were
commanded to do so as well so that before Adam left the garden
the animals were given time to multiply and fan out over all
the earth. So that no matter where men went their would be an
ample supply of flesh and skins for him to subsist on.
within Adam there grows this desire or yearning for something
for him to derive his pleasure and comfort from other than God
himself. This should be of no surprise because we see this in the word of
God happening over and over again.
Exodus 20:18-19 And all the people saw the thunderings,
and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain
smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood
afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and
we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
Children of God reject God and want instead to trade there birthright
to others and let those others hear from God and serve God in
Samuel 8:6-8 But
the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king
to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice
of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have
not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should
not reign over them.
rejection of God is over the first step they took with Moses
we need to see the meaning of the words in Genesis 2:19-20 regarding
the relationship between Adam and God.
That it was first and foremost that of a loving father
with his son – his only begotten son, begotten of his very breath.
And that as a son Adam did everything with his Father. They
walked, they talked, they ate together. In every sense of the
word in the beginning God dwelled with Adam 24 hours a day and
seven days a week. But over time this relationship cooled and
as the church of Ephesus at the beginning of the Book of Revelation
within a mere generation a mere 30 years they had lost their
first love. So too after an undisclosed period of tie Adam had lost his first
love. The love for his father and God, and his heart desired
God grants Adam the desires of his heart
2:18 And the LORD God said,
It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him
an help meet for him
Genesis 2:21-22 And the LORD God caused
a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one
of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the
rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman,
and brought her unto the man.
The following is from my Hebrew Interlinear: But for Adam was not found a helper suited to him. And Jehovah God
made to fall on Adam the Nabu (Spirit of God.) And he slept (Yasen) and
He took from the side of the Adam and closed up the flesh underneath
and the Jehovah God formed from that which he had taken from
the Adam and brought her unto the Adam. And said the Adam this
is now at last bone from my bones and flesh of my flesh and
bone of my bone for this shall now be called woman.
The word for woman in the Hebrew is “Issa.” The root word
is Es “Flame” or “Fire” Issa in Hebrew is actually “Altar of
The Nabu spirit of God fell on Adam a Jehovah God speaks through
Adam’s own lips as God later did with Moses, Samuel David and
the prophets. And by
this utterance of tongues of men and of angels Eve grew out
from Adam’s side. And the Lord Jehovah separated Eve from Adam
and formed her into the image and likeness of Adam when God
was finished he showed her to Adam. And as Adam did with all the other animals, and birds so did he.
But the bible notes also that something different happened
this time. And Adam seeing what Jehovah had created for him
prophesied with the Nabu spirit of God and said: Now this is at last bone of my bones and flash of my flesh for this
shall mow be called woman. Adam did not call her by
the spirit of God “female man” or “wife of man” as men have
taught. – Adam prophetically called her Issa the Altar of Fire, or the Fire of the Altar.
The significance of this is that Adam prophesied from the first that
Eve was to be the altar and fire implying that he Adam was to
be the sacrifice or the offering or the redemption for Eve.
But sadly we will see that Adam could not, and would not be
that offering, and that Adam shrank back from that calling.
We need to see also in this that Adam also prophesied at the same
time of the Coming One’s; Jesus Christ’s sacrifice would be
for the sins of all the offspring of Issa. And we indeed see
in the Gospels that from the beginning Christ the second and
last Adam knew that he was the lamb of God. And he was not deterred
with the empty promises of wealth or of earthly thrones and
kingdoms – he brushed all that aside for he came not to be served
but to serve. He did
not shrink from his call but set his sights on the cross and
with his eyes open willing became that sacrifice, that through
him the way of salvation might be made manifest.
And we need to see that the church that shrinks back from this calling
that are not willing to take up their cross and follow him,
that are not willing to sacrifice their lives as the disciples
were made to drink from Christ’s cup that others might be saved
are indeed the sons of Adam. But to those that are willing to
offer themselves as Christ did for them, those that count all
gain as loss, those that willing suffer his shame, and willingly
with their eyes open allow themselves to be abused of men for
the gospel’s sake these are the sons of Christ indeed. So indeed
are the words of Christ true many are called but few are chose.
Straight is the gate and narrow is the way of life and few there
be that find it.
Paul understood the meaning of the new name Adam prophetically gave
his helpmeet -- Issa and we can mow see that Paul is speaking
love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Paul has written this passage based on Genesis chapters 2-3. We see
Paul is saying that Issa was to Submit herself the to Adam the
son of God. That Adam the son of God was the head of Issa because
Adam was the head of the Ek-klesia (out called of the called)
and Adam was called to be the head of his body – (that which
was bone of his bones and flesh was his flesh.) And that Adam
was to sanctified and cleanse Issa. – Adam was to rear Issa
up with the word that proceedeth from the mouth of God.
But this is in itself a point of great disconnect – for Adam for
the Church and for husbands. See tge rearing up with the word
that proceedeth was supposed to bring Issa, the church and wives
into direct relations with Christ. It was to be the act of a
humbling priest to make up the hedge until Christ could be formed
in the others but instead their was a lust from earthly dominion
earthly authority and earthly power that put Issa, the Church
and wives in as servants and Adam, the priest or the Husband
as master and Lord and forcing their subordinates to become
disciples of them and then preventing them from becoming disciples
of Christ altogether.
So I believe it was with Adam. Adam the son of God like Moses spoke
with God, And Adam like
Moses would then teach his wife.
We can also see in Scripture that what the relationship of Adam devolved
to was the one described in the book of Job where the sons of
God presenting themselves to God at appointed times. And so we find a few verses later that Adam was to periodically
present himself and Issa to God – and that was accomplished
in the cool of the day. –
And at that time they would commune with God and speak of their
words, thoughts and acts during the day. Adam was charged that
at this presentation and that he and Issa were to remain without
spot or wrinkle and to be holy and without blemish before God.
5:22-33 Wives, submit yourselves unto your
own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23For the husband
is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:
and he is the saviour of the body. 24Therefore as
the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their
own husbands in every thing. 25Husbands, love your wives, even
as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26That
he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by
the word, 27That he might present it to himself a
glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing;
but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies.
He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29For no
man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth
it, even as the Lord the church: 30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31For
this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall
be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32This
is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and
the church. 33Nevertheless let every one of you in
particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see
that she reverence her husband.
Paul continues about Adam and Issa that they were members of the
same common dirt, they shared the same breath of God. Issa was
flesh of Adam’s flesh and bone of his bone Paul then recites
Adam’s prophetic utterance: Therefore shall a man leave father
and mother and cleave into his wife – See the “cleave” of Genesis
is called by Paul “join unto.” And the two shall become one
flesh – Paul then tells us that all of this with Adam and Issa
and its relation to Christ in the Church is a mystery – a great
mystery – the word mystery is an untranslated Greek word Mysterion -- it means it is secret it is hidden. It is something that
can only be revealed to whom it is given. But this is not just
a Mysterion this is a great Mysterion the word great in the Greek is MEGA -- which means great, important, weighty, extraordinary,
great in rank.
While the word mystery is used 22 times in the New Testament there
are only three things that are listed in the New Testament as
great mysteries. The bible is filled with sealed scrolls, parables,
dark sayings, proverbs, things that are hid and mysteries. These
things are revealed by no amount of study, or by our natural
understanding, but instead these are revealed but the Spirit.
Christ is the gatekeeper of all truth. There are many teachers
of the thoughts and opinions of men, but few that have revealed
to them that which is hid for few place their dependency on
the gatekeeper of truth for their words, instead reaching for that which comes from
their own understanding or the understanding of others through
tapes books commentaries and study notes. Christ will not accept
you as his disciple if you are the disciple of another.
Back to Adam in the Garden
Genesis 2:21-22 And
the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept(Yasen):
and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man,
made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
3462 Hebrew Yasen the word means “to be inactive” or
“stationary” it is translated as “sleep,” “old store,”
“old,” and “that which remains long.”
3465 Hebrew Yasan the word means “Witherered,” of “flabby.” – it is the image of the top of a fainted plant that is hanging down.
3426 The root is of
Yasen is Yes, “to be,”
“to have,” “are, “ “hast,” and “has,” the word means to have being, to have substance or to have existence – It is
part of the name of Jehovah or I am that I am
So looking at all this we see in this word
not sleep but Adam entered into a divine state of human inactivity: Adam stood still in God, Adam ceased in God
from doing – And
Not of Adam’s labor, or not of Adam’s will, or not of Adam or Adam’s flesh.
The root of all of these words contain part
of the name of Jehovah. So
Adam entered into God’s rest – he ceased from labor and as the
Nabu spirit of God came upon him and worked His work.
Adam stood still while he saw the salvation
of his God.
Exodus 14:13 And Moses said unto the
people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the
mused while the flames burned within
Psalm 39:3 My heart was hot within
me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my
entered into the rest
We see that the Nabu spirit of God Comes upon Adam and his lips and
tongue become an extension
of God and Adam utters forth and from his side grows another
being And Adam enters into divine inactivity so apart
from himself that which
is to be emerges or grows out from his side. God then separates
Adam’s counterpart closes Adams flesh and forms this being in
his hand. When God is finished God brings her to Adam and as
before Adam is to observe, to speak with, and fellowship with
this creation and the Nabu spirit of God yet being present Adam
prophesies and names her Issa – the Altar of flame
Now there is another thing of great significance that Adam prophesies.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father
and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall
be one flesh.
As I have suggested previously up until this point Adam had been
the son of God and had been under God’s rule and under God’s
caretakership. I have suggested that Adam in seeing the other
beasts in the field frolic mate and have offspring felt this
desire to. And this desire grows as God creates and brings to
Adam His delighted creations for the Adam to experience and
to name. So Adam prophesies that a man shall leave his
father and mother can cleave unto his wife (Singular) the two
shall become one flesh.
The significance of this is that Adam the son of God prophesied his
leaving his father (God) and his cleaving unto Issa.
This was not a revelatory prophesy of high revelation and calling
this was for Adam and the sons of Adam.
It is a solemn warning.
For at the creation of Issa Adam received the corrupt
fleshly desire of his heart. And instead of bringing Issa into
a right relationship with the Father as Christ the second and
last Adam did with the Ek-klesia, Adam left his first love of
God his father for the love of Issa
(flesh of his flesh.)
And in so doing Adam forsook his 24/7 relationship with
his nurturing Father and instead went into a relationship with
the father of appointed meetings in the cool of the evening
where he presented himself and Issa before God and accounted
for their daily exploits. This was not the glorious high calling
of Adam. This is a diminished call – this is a pulling
back from God. This is the first rejection of God. It is not
to be understood as sin, but Adam being overcome by his God
given desires and so this was deemed acceptable
In light of this passage Paul speaks about not marrying and one’s
diminished service to God when they are married. Paul does not call this sin because it is not but intimates that
we as believers are to live 24/7 with God as opposed to presenting
ourselves before the lord in the cool of the day.
Paul calls remaining single and serving the Lord a gift of God.
There are several notable people who are single or widows that
render service before God day and night and find favor with
1 Corinthians 5:6-15 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7For I would that all men were
even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God,
one after this manner, and another after that. 8I
say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them
if they abide even as I. 9But if they cannot contain,
let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. 10And
unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not
the wife depart from her husband: 11But and if she
depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband:
and let not the husband put away his wife. 12But
to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife
that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let
him not put her away. 13And the woman which hath
an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell
with her, let her not leave him. 14For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving
wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean;
but now are they holy. 15But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister
is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to
We can see once again that Paul again is referring to Genesis Chapter
two and Three.
And he seems to be answering a question that has been poses over
and over again in my hearing. The Question is what if Issa has
sinned but Adam had not. We see that Adam was called to redeem
Issa and that Adam had he remained in is holy state would have
not only sanctified Issa but Adam’s children that would have
been made unclean through Issa would have also been redeemed
through Adam. Adam’s sin was not that he wanted Issa Adam’s
sin was not that he was to cleave unto Issa and that he and
Issa were to become one flesh – Adam’s sin was that he forgot
his first love, at the sight of Issa Adam promptly forgot his
love of the father.
Revelation 2:4-5 Nevertheless
I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first
love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent,
and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly,
and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou
What we see in Genesis 2:22-24 Is the end of the tabernacle
of God with Adam, and the installation of Adam the Levite performing
the evening offering
After Genesis 2:22 no longer does Adam love God with all his heart,
with all his mind, and all his strength. But that we see that
Adam instead loves his flesh (Issa) with all his heart with
all his mind and all his strength.
