Whom Do Men Say That Adam Is
Part 1

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 of God.

Luke 3:38  . . . 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 dust.  It 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.”

The 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.”

Genesis 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 soil.


Genesis 2:7 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.

So 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. 

So another critical part of the answer as to who Adam is; is that Adam is dirt – specifically common every day dirt

The 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. 

Why would God go through all the trouble of creating things for six days and them make the crowning achievement of creation out of dirt?

The answer can be seen in what this dirt was supposed to do.

The first Adam was made of no reputation – we can see this in Adam as he was created out of common Dirt. 

Philippians 2:7 But (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:

When 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.


Psalm 8:3-5 When 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.

David 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.

Keeping what David just in mind now look at the first and second chapter of Hebrews.

Hebrews 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.
I 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?
So 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.

And 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 God.
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.   

What 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.
The 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 hate you.  

1 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.

Romans 5:14 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.

Another 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.

Adam 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.

So 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 him.

Remember 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.

The 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 and insects.

I 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.

So 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.

The 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 their place.

1 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.

This rejection of God is over the first step they took with Moses

So 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 another, 

So God grants Adam the desires of his heart

Genesis 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 Fire”

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 it here.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, 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. 

Ephesians 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 LORD,

Adam 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 tongue,

Adam 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.

Genesis 2: 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 the Lord. 
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 peace.

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 repent.

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.
