Eve, Reality of LIfe–Just as life is important for each of us physically, the spiritual life is the same. Especially, the spiritual life or the eternal life is essential for our salvation. What we do not realize is how to receive the spiritual life? And who is the source of life? Let us find out what “life” is in the bible.
Our Spiritual Status
Eve, Reality of LIfe–The reason life is important to us is because we do not have life in us. The bible teaches everyone on this earth is destined to die because of our sins. Nobody is free from this fate of sin and death.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—
Because of the sin of Adam, death entered into the world to all men. Through this we can understand that the sin of Adam was written to us to teach us the sins we committed in heaven. And because of our sins we got banished from heaven (the garden of Eden) and came to this earth.
Jesus’ Teaching About The Spiritually Dead
Eve, Reality of LIfe–Jesus teaches us that we do not have eternal life in us too.
Matthew 8:21 21 Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” 22 But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.” (NIV)
Matthew 8:21 21 Another of his disciples said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.” 22 But Jesus told him, “Follow me now. Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead. (NLT)
In this verse, Jesus teaches that people living in this world are actually ‘the dead’ in the spiritual sense. The dead mean they do not have ‘LIFE’ in them. That is, they do not have ‘eternal life’ in them. Then how can we have life in us? How can we be the living in the spiritual sense?
The Way To Have “LIFE” in Us
Eve, Reality of LIfe–Then how can we have life in us? Christ teaches that we must eat his flesh and drink his blood to have life.
John 6:53 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
Jesus says that without his flesh and blood in us we cannot have “LIFE” in us. Therefore, through this words of God, we can see that the only way to have “LIFE” in us is by eating his flesh and drinking his blood. “Unless” means that there is no other way. Consequently, to have “LIFE” in us we must eat his flesh and drink his blood. His flesh and blood is “LIFE” itself.
John 6:54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.
By eating his flesh and drinking his blood we can have “life” in us.
The Reality Of Jesus’ Flesh and Blood
Eve, Reality of LIfe–Then what is the way we participate in the flesh and blood of Jesus? To get the answer for this question is to know the reality of his flesh and blood? According to the bible, Jesus is spiritual Adam. Unlike Adam, who brought the death into the world, however, Jesus is an anti-type of Adam, who can bring “LIFE” into the world.
Romans 5:14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come (Christ).
Spiritually, Adam signifies the one to come or the Christ who would come to bring “LIFE” to us. The spiritual Adam, Jesus said that we must eat his flesh and blood to have life. Since Jesus is the spiritual Adam, to know the reality of Jesus’ flesh and blood first we have know Adam’s flesh and blood.
Adam’s Flesh and Blood
Eve, Reality of LIfe–Then what is Adam’s flesh and blood? In the Book of Genesis, God already foretold the flesh and blood of Adam. By studying the physical Adam in the book, we can know the Christ, who is the spiritual Adam. And also we can know the reality of Christ’s flesh and blood. Then what is Adam’s flesh and blood? And how is it related to “LIFE” that Jesus would give?
Genesis 2:20 But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
This is the creation of EVE. When Eve was created, Adam testified that Eve is his flesh and blood. “Bone of my Bones” means that Eve was Adam’s blood. The bone contains marrow which produces blood. Therefore, Adam’s rib bone represents Adam’s blood God used in creating Eve. Also God used Adam’s flesh in creating Eve.
Eve, The Reality of Adam’s Flesh and Blood
Eve, Reality of LIfe–Through these verses, we can see the reality of Adam’s flesh and blood, Eve. Then why did God created Eve? We can know the purpose of God in creating Eve through the name Eve itself. Eve means “LIFE”.
Definition of Eve: The verb חיה (haya) means to live or have life, or to give or restore life; quickening or revive, nourish or refresh. This very important root-verb obviously occurs all over the Bible. (From Abarim Publications)
Adam’s flesh and blood, Eve means “LIFE”. Through this story of Adam, God is teaching us the reality of LIFE we must know to have eternal life. Jesus said that his flesh and blood is life. Then what is the reality of Jesus’ flesh and blood? It represents “the spiritual Eve” who would appear to give us life.
Christ’s Wife: Spiritual Eve
Eve, Reality of LIfe–According to the bible, the spiritual Eve would appear along with spiritual Adam (Christ) in the last days to give us eternal life.
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
Just as God created Eve (LIFE) to give life to children, the spiritual Eve (Christ’s wife) would appear to give the water of life or simply LIFE. Then who is this wife of Christ we must meet for life in the last day?
Revelation 21:9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
Heavenly Jerusalem: God the Mother
Eve, Reality of LIfe–John said that the wife of Christ the spiritual Adam is the heavenly Jerusalem that come from heaven to this earth as the bride of Christ. So we can see the Heavenly Jerusalem is the spiritual Eve or LIFE we must meet to have life in the last days. Then who is this heavenly Jerusalem?
Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
The bible teaches that the heavenly Jerusalem is Our Mother, in other words, God the Mother who appears as the reality of LIFE in the last days.
Eve, Reality of LIfe–As the spiritually dead, people on this earth do not have LIFE in us. 2000 years ago, Jesus said that his flesh and blood is the LIFE we must have in us to receive eternal life. Actually, that teaching was given to us to reveal God the Mother, the reality of Jesus’ flesh and blood who would come to this earth as the reality of LIFE in the last day.
Now to fulfill the prophecies of the bible the spiritual Eve God the Mother appeared to us. She is the reality of LIFE we must receive to have eternal life. Jesus said “Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no LIFE in you.” This means unless we receive the reality of Jesus’s flesh and blood, God the Mother, we cannot have LIFE in us.” It is because God the Mother is the LIFE itself who came to give us life.
