Some of us are married here on earth to our wives and our husbands. We are Men and Women.
Ephesians 5:22-26 KJVS
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,”
Christ will sanctify your marriage, and will clean it with the washing of water BY THE WORD. That’s the key, and there is not one Man or Woman that should Lord themselves over each other.
1 Peter 5:2-4 KJVS
“Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;  Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.”
For we, Man and Woman are the Bride to our Husband, Jesus Christ.
This study we will look at this Man, our true Husband, the Lord Jesus Christ.
First let’s look the first Man, and the last Man.
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 KJVS
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
From A Man( Adam) we all die.
Genesis 3:17-19 KJVS
“And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;  Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;  In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”
In the Garden of Eden Adam, like his wife Eve, partook of of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Satan.) Therefore because of that sin, we all die in the flesh.
From a Man came also the resurrection of Life, and only from Jesus Christ that can happen.
1 Corinthians 15:22 KJVS
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
Let’s jump down a little in this Chapter of 1st Corinthians,
1 Corinthians 15:45-47 KJVS
“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.  The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”
The second Man is the Lord Jesus Christ. He washes away sin and destroys death.
Jesus Christ is a quickening Spirit, and He is the Word of God.
Hebrews 4:12 KJVS
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
The Word that washes us.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God that is quick , and He is the Quickening Spirit in which Eternal life is offered, a marriage that will last forever.
Going back to the Garden of Eden after Eve was beguiled by the Serpent( Satan) and Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden with the Serpent( Satan,) look what Our Heavenly Father said to Eve.
Genesis 3:16 KJVS
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
Eve is the Mother of all living, and through her conception, all living is brought through this earth age.
We are the Woman, like we were in the First Earth Age and our desire should only be to our Husband, and He ( Jesus Christ) shall rule over us .
We will keep ourselves adorn with in modest apparel everyday for our Husband by going to His Word everyday.
1 Timothy 2:9-10 KJVS
“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;  But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.”
We should never try to put on other apparel, and override Christ teachings .
1 Timothy 2:11-12 KJVS
“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”
Do not ever teach your words over The Word Of God, stay close to scripture. Never let any other doctrine come in and usurp the Man who is Jesus Christ , for He is the Word of God.
Ephesians 4:12-15 KJVS
“For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”
The Head of the Body is Jesus Christ, and He is the Head of the church. We are His Brides and we are part of that Body. No other Apparel should ever go on this Body.
1 Timothy 2:9,13-15 KJVS
“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.  Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
Through the Woman which is Eve we all came into this Earth Age. The Seed of Everlasting life came through Her seed also , and that Seed is Jesus Christ.
Through Jesus Christ we all are saved, if we stay in modest apparel, with Love, and Holiness, and if we stay sober in Him, and don’t follow another man. We know another man will come to try to take His place. Remain vigilant and sober ( 1st Peter Chapter 5 Verse 8.)
To be continued.
