💚 Eve was Adam’s Equal 👰🏽

Eve was created as Adam’s “equal…his second self” – something went wrong 1⃣

Adam was then made the head of the family

    Christ the Last Adam, likewise was “equal with God”:

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God”

Like Adam and Eve, the Three Dignitaries of Heaven were “equal” to One another, until sin entered in. It was at that moment in sin’s history, the Last Adam “made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:5-7)

So then we see that, though it was Eve who was made a “servant” (as have most women since then) – yet, for the Last Adam, the reverse is true.

Why?
Well, we’ll talk about that later.

Yet, one thing is clear – Jesus had become a “servant.”
He “became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” This was beside the fact that Jesus (the “Last Adam….2nd man”) became subservient to the Father, and will ever remain so! 2⃣

Yet, there is a catch – just in case you ladies out there should say,
“Okay, men are supposed to be “servants” to us, now — not the other way around!”

Well… yes, and no.

In every instance of Jesus’ life, we see that Jesus came to represent His Father, rather than Himself.

In the Old Testament,
1. The Son of God was revealed through the burning bush,
— as Saviour & rescue of His people
• from Egypt
• and idolatry, and
• giving of laws, in Garden to Adam & Eve.
— The warning that people would die,
• if they disobeyed His laws, and
• subsequent judgments, when laws ignored.

And finally, as in the case of the first couple, the Jewish Nation were removed from their lovely Garden.

So, the 2nd phase of discovery, was the drawing forth of Woman… Woman Church, and the revealing of the Father, hidden within “the Son of man” – as Eve was hidden within Adam.

In this we can see the beauty and mystery of the Father, as revealed by the Last Adam, Jesus. Even as Adam had seen the beauty and mystery of Eve, who had been hidden within him and drawn forth, “as bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.”

Adam was alone in the Garden when he saw this beauty walk into his life.

The Jewish Nation had the privilege to witness a similar, but more stunning, beauty of the Father to emerge from within the 2nd man, Who said,

“…Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father… the words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwells in Me, He does the works”

Was Jesus unable to do “the works” while He was here on Earth?
No – not at all. Jesus was perfectly capable of doing works under His Own power.

Yet, if He had done so,
• the Father would not have had His chance to be revealed to the Jewish Nation; and
• the plan of salvation would have been thwarted, in that no one would be able to duplicate following in Jesus’ footsteps.

If Jesus had acted in His Own behalf, or on His Own capacity, then He could not be our Substitute and Example. No one living on Earth has ever acted on their own capacity. We are powered by the breath of God.

The only power we are given, is the power of free choice – to decide whether we want to live with God under His rules, or go back from whence we came – eternal nothingness… the dust of the earth.

We didn’t ask to be born, so God gives us free choice to go back to our original state

It is through accepting the Father’s power to work in us, on behalf of Jesus Christ, that we could follow Jesus’ footsteps, as our “Example” –

“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:19-20)

Oh, about the question asked previously: who is to be servant over who?
All those who follow Jesus are to be servants to everyone they meet – especially are we to be servants to the Master’s will… in “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”

The Jewish Nation never learned that, and Woman Church in her present state hasn’t either. Jesus asked the question in Luke 18:8,

“…when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?”
°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
From Jesus’ bleeding side, Woman Church was to be the continual unfolding of the beauty, mystery and great “…Love” of Who “God is…” throughout all the Endless ages… a “wonder” to admire, for all the sinless creatures throughout the vast realms of God’s glorious space (I John 4:18; Rev.12:1)

It is in this beauty, that the Father would be seen by those sinless beings living on far flung planets, who would otherwise never know this aspect of God – for only the inhabitants of Earth would ever have the privilege to see the Father “face to face” (Rev.22:2-4)

1⃣ God Himself gave Adam a companion. He provided “an help meet for him”—a helper corresponding to him—one who was fitted to be his companion, and who could be one with him in love and sympathy. Eve was created from a rib taken from the side of Adam, signifying that she was not to control him as the head, nor to be trampled under his feet as an inferior, but to stand by his side as an equal, to be loved and protected by him. A part of man, bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh, she was his second self, showing the close union and the affectionate attachment that should exist in this relation. “For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it.” Ephesians 5:29. “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one”…. – {DG 22.3}

2⃣ I Corinthians 15:24-28,45-47 reveals this stone cold fact:
“Then cometh the end, when He [Jesus Christ] shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign, till [until!] He hath put all enemies under his feet….And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then [then!] shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him [The Father] that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all”
°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

Q: Jesus, the Last Adam will always be subject to His Father, why?!
A: Because He no longer is omniscient – knowing all things.

Impossible you say?
If you don’t believe that, would you believe Jesus’ Own words?:
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (Matthew 24:35-36).

Jesus is in the Heavenly most holy place throne room today – and He still does not know when He’s coming. This is why He must put everything under His Father for approval — even for all eternity.

Another major text that shows this hierarchy table is I Corinthians 11:3
“I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God”
