In this thread i'll go into detail on a few things symbolized within the first Torah (Penteteuch) and second Torah (New Testament). We'll see where
Adam and Eve fit in with their future counterparts and the jewish symbolism and it's meanings.
In the beginning we see Adam (Man), and he started out alone, but he wanted a helper, a mate to help him tend the Garden of Eden. Then God came and
took from him a rib and fashioned a woman from him to be his wife. A part of his body became his wife and together they were one flesh, both of them
parts of the greater whole. This was the beginning.
Then came the making of the Ark and it's Tabernacle at Mt. Sinai, which were set to the exact dimensions of the Temple and Ark in heaven which they
mirrored. Those dimensions being, the Ark which would later reside in the Temple which would be built in Jerusalem. David wanted to build the Temple
but he was denied that honor because he was a man of blood, a warrior.
The Ark was an ordinary wooden box made probably from Red Acacia, or "#-tim" wood, overlaid by gold symbolizing the dinvinity covering the ordinary
wood crafted to bear the presence of God, his throne on Earth, his vessel, which is another allegorical allusion to the man Jesus, who would be the
Emanu'el "God with us", the heavenly vessel bearing the presence of God in him, God's throne in heaven and this is how both Father and Son share the
.9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before
the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation
belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures,
and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15
Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They
shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will
shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
It is here we see the Lamb and God in the midst of the throne, and not for the first time. The king of Israel was seen in Isaiah 6 by Isaiah on his
Between Adam and Eve, and the Ark, Temple and Jerusalem we can see the coming together of a major prophetic event to come in what is now the
If we go to the book of Revelation chapter 21, we can see how Jesus and his people who are his Body, the Body of Christ are taken and become the Bride
of Christ. Just as Adams wife came from his body, so too would Christ's wife come from out of his body.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw
the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven
saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and
be their God.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more
pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,“Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely
to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,
abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone,
which is the second death.”
The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will
show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy
Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as
crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of
the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he who talked with me had a
gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. 16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured
the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. 17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four
cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. 18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear
glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second
sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth
topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one
pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine
in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of
the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring
the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but
only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
As we can see from the underlined protions, Jesus is the Temple of God. The Temple is where God's throne is and he dwells amoung his people and his
wife comes from his Body the same as when Adam's wife came from his own body. It all comes fullcircle.
This is where we christians, learn to look into the Old Testament to verify these things. This is why christian men do not need to rule over their
wives, because we are one flesh even as our Lord and Savior is one flesh with his Bride.
