It’s getting close to time for Passover once again, and we wanted to take a few minutes to think out loud. Here are a few quick thoughts to ponder concerning elements that go back to the very beginning in the garden and are connected to Passover as we consider the First Adam and Yeshua, the Second Adam.
Yeshua was hung on a tree, the same thing that caused all the problem with Adam and Eve in the beginning – a tree.
Because of sin, blood was shed to provide a covering for the First Adam and his bride. Because of sin, the Blood of the Second Adam was shed to provide reconciliation and atonement for His Bride.
In the beginning all creation came from the dust. The dust and all that came from it was cursed due to sin. Yeshua took on dust in order to redeem from sin all that came from the dust.
Thorns and thistles were a product of the curse brought about by sin. The First Adam, because of the thorns and thistles, brought forth bread by the sweat of his brow. Yeshua took those thorns upon His brow, applying His Blood to them, in order to deliver even that part of the creation of the dust from the curse brought about by sin.
The First Adam was placed in a deep sleep and his side was opened up, birthing his bride. On the cross, Yeshua, the Second Adam, was destined to die, a deep sleep if you will. His side was opened up and out of that wound flowed water and blood, birthing His Eternal Bride.
By the disobedience of the First Adam and his bride, the door of direct communion with our Father was closed and they could no longer ‘walk with Him in the cool of the day’. By His ‘obedience unto death’, Yeshua, the Second Adam, reopened the veil of access to our Father for His Bride through the tearing of the Veil of His Flesh. The Veil of the Temple was torn asunder and thrown side to side, symbolizing that renewed access to our Father.
” Remember this, and stand firm; Recall to mind, you rebels. 9 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is none other; I am God, and there is none like Me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times that which is not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,” Isaiah 46
