The Last Adam

The Last Adam, or Second Adam ... we hear this title referenced a lot in the B'rit Chadashah. At base level, we can understand the reference in part. The first Adam, recorded in Genesis, brought death to all mankind through one act of disobedience. The second Adam, who is Messiah Yeshua, brought life to all mankind through one act of obedience being his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross on behalf of all. (Romans 5:12-19, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49)

What a beautiful revelation...

The first Adam was formed of the ground.

The second Adam was formed of the Spirit.

The first Adam brought death.

The second Adam brought life.

But, taking into consideration the far reaching depths and intricacies of Adonai, could there be more to the Second Adam than meets the eye?

And if the original Adam has such a grand spiritual counterpart, does Havah as well?

The writer of Ephesians was tuning into this very revelation when he quoted Genesis in Ephesians 5:31-32 “”Therefore a man will leave his father and mother and remain with his wife, and the two will become one.” There is profound truth hidden here, which I say concerns the Messiah and the Messianic Community.”

So what is this profound hidden truth? And what more can be said about the Second Adam and Havah?

The details of the first account in Genesis 2:21-24 lead us to the answer.

“Then God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man; and while he was sleeping, God took one of the man's ribs, closed up the place from which he took it with flesh, and from the rib made a woman-person; and he brought her to the man. Adam said, “At last! This is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She is to be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” This is why a man is to leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and they are to be one flesh.”

The first Adam had his side pierced and rib removed in order for Adonai to create his wife Havah.

The second Adam, likewise, had his side pierced, only this time it was pierced on the cross in order to extend forgiveness and new life to his Bride that was being created; the Messianic Community.

The first Adam, because of his sin, left the garden and the Heavenly Father to cleave to his wife.

The second Adam, because of his great love, left his heavenly abode and the presence of the Father to be born as a man into sinful humanity in order to cleave to his bride; us.

The first Adam ate fruit from his wife that produced death.

The second Adam not only embodies the Tree of Life, but also enables his bride to be fruitful as well!

Thank you Father 🙌🏼

Isaiah 46:10 says “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come…”

Thank you, for even in the very first few chapters of Genesis, you announce to your people the awesome end you've planned in advance for us…

You've given up immeasurable things on behalf of us.

And through Yeshua, you have given us new life, and are forming us into the spiritual bride of Messiah without spot or blemish.

Shavu'a tov, beloved ones of God... literally speaking ❤️❤️

Until next time, N&M
