The Ultimate Purpose of God

2) The creation of Eve and the ultimate purpose.

When we look at the way God created Eve we can gain understanding and revelation concerning our rebirth. GEN 2:21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place. GEN 2:22 And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. God doesn’t create woman the same way he created man, but instead pulls this female potential out of the one man. The act of creating a separate person to fill some lack in man would have been an indication of imperfection. There is no deficiency in manas God created him though he is alone. God pulls out of this perfect man this female potential and forms for him an equal, a helpmate. Thus man is a type of God. God in His wisdom knew woman would have had grounds to oppose man and man to oppose the woman if she had been created similarly. Instead of woman proceeding from man, as man proceeded from God, they would have both proceeded from God. The outcome of this would have been seen in them competing with one another. Man could have claimed independence from the woman, seeing he had no attachments to her, and failed to procreate and populate the earth. Had both man and woman been created alike they could have chosen to live separate lives without having any lack. God instead removes part of Adam and fashion’s it into a female called Eve. This once perfect man is now imperfect and partial without Eve. The man would always be inseparably linked with the woman for he is now deficient having given up part of himself in order to have a helpmate. We see this very fact in Adam’s response, “GEN 2:23 ... ‘This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.’"

How does the fact that woman was taken out of man relate to God’s ultimate purpose? Even as God took out of man the female potential and formed woman, so out of Jesus comes the potential for us to be reborn and become a child of God. God had to take part of the man and place it in the woman for there to be a need for them both to cling to one another. The man was missing a part of himself as soon as God removed the rib and would forever be incomplete without the woman. God created a perfect Adam and then proceeded to divide him, thus forcing him to cling to Eve. His helpmate, wife, other half, whatever you prefer to call her, is now indispensable. Adam is no longer perfect without Eve.

 The Apostle Paul states in the first book of Corinthians, “1CO 11:3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.” Paul shows us that there is a progression to this life. God the Father decides to put on a body and that body is Jesus. Paul states, “COL 1:19 For it was the {Father's} good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him,” and “COL 2:9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form.” also “COL 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation.” The author of Hebrews says, “HEB 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power....” What we can deduct from these verses is that every quality that makes God the Supreme Being is in Jesus. Jesus possesses every divine quality and yet God is His head. We seem to struggle over who and what Jesus is but we should not. Jesus is the result of God putting on flesh. God places a portion of His divine nature in the body called Jesus. (click here for a short discourse on the  Godhead) Is he God? You bet He is! We need to realize that God did the most amazing thing by altering His form for all eternity by taking on a human body. That human body is now a permanent possession that proceeded out of the creation. Just as Eve was taken out of the body of the one man making her part of the human race so the god element in Jesus was taken out of God and placed in a human body making Him a divine person. Likewise Jesus is God even as Eve is human (man) but neither have the authority to rule over their source, God and Adam respectively. Jesus is obviously submitted to God the Father for Jesus states many times that He came to serve the Father and do His will (JOH 4:34, 5:30, 6:38).

God is the head of Jesus and Jesus is the head of man. We saw that God put Himself in Jesus which made God Jesus’ head, but how did Jesus become the head of man? By the new birth! We realize that we are separated from God and understand that Jesus provided the remedy for this separation. By asking Jesus to be our Savior we open up our lives to receive the spirit of Jesus, who is God. Jesus/God moves into our body and gives us spiritual life. This is the life that Adam forfeited when he ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We are now possessors of the spirit of Jesus. In other words, Jesus takes part of Himself and places it in us. Are you starting to see the progression? God is giving part of Himself to those who are obedient to Jesus thus becoming somewhat incomplete apart from those that share in His spirit, even as the man was no longer whole without the woman. Now I am not saying that Jesus is no longer God and that He doesn’t possess the powers of God. In sharing Himself with man God is actually increasing, or replicating even as cells replicate. There was only one man that had male and female potentials. God caused man to sleep in order to pull out the potential and in so doing man replicated and from then on would reproduce profusely. God’s intention was to start replicating even as He caused man to replicate.

For those who still may not see this let me recap. God put Himself in Jesus or the body of Jesus. Jesus puts Himself in man at the new birth. A part of man was placed in the woman, thus we have: 1CO 11:3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. Isn’t this what the Apostle Paul was speaking about when he penned these words, 1CO 11:7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 1CO 11:8 For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; 1CO 11:9 for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for the man's sake. In the same way, Jesus taking on flesh was not meant for His immediate benefit but for His Father’s purposes. The creation of man should be viewed in the same way. Man exists not for his own benefit but for a far greater purpose.

God creates everything on earth with the drive to reproduce after its kind. God could have just as easily created everything to fill the earth and preserved that balance through His divine power. Instead, God wants all creation to reproduce and spread out to the farthest corners of the world and maybe even the universe. The world as we know it has reproduction as the very cornerstone of its existence. Without reproduction, life would be impossible to sustain.

We can ascertain from scripture that no one but Jesus is equal to God and yet God is not satisfied with Jesus alone. God intends to bring many sons (the term son has to do with inheritance and not gender) to Himself through Jesus. HEB 2:9 But we do see Him who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, {namely,} Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. HEB 2:10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. HEB 2:11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one {Father}; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren.

During the twentieth century it was not uncommon for ministers to say, “we should strive to become more like God.” Really we should become more God like. God is our Father and Jesus is our big brother (the first fruit not the only fruit). ROM 8:23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for {our} adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

Demons are just screaming, “This is heresy.” They don’t want you to believe the truth because they will not be able to control you anymore. If you really get a revelation of this you will walk around doing the things Jesus did.

Satan even tried to discredit Jesus from declaring that He was the son of God. Why? Because that made Him equal with God. JOH 5:18 For this cause therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. God putting Himself in the body of Jesus made Jesus God, even as Jesus putting Himself in us makes us of the same species as God. 

JOH 10:32 Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” JOH 10:33 The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out {to be} God.” JOH 10:34 Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, 'I said, you are gods'? JOH 10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), JOH 10:36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world,' You are blaspheming,' because I said,' I am the Son of God'”? JOH 10:37 "If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; JOH 10:38 but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.” If Jesus claims that He is God because the Father is in Him and He is in the Father what does it make us when we declare we are in Jesus and Jesus is in us? JOH 14:20 In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. It makes us equal with Jesus, who we know is equal with God. We have to remember that we are not speaking equal in position (who has the final authority) but in nature and character. Even as a child is not less than their parents, all having the same nature and of the same species, but the child surely doesn’t have the position of authority that the parents have.

We will have a problem with these ideas as long as we rely upon our own understanding and power to do and be what God created us to be. When we fail to realize that our hope of glory is God in us, we inevitable rely upon our own self. In light of our own self we fail miserably to attain any standard even remotely like God. This state teaches us that we are not and never will be like God. Therefore we reject any concept or teaching that we are destined to be equal (co-heirs) with Jesus. The problem here is that those in this state fail to rely upon God and His word. We cannot and never will attain our stature in Christ by our own power, it is impossible. Instead, we have to, 1) accept the word of God as absolutely true, 2) mix our faith with the word and 3) actually do exactly as the word instructs us to do. (This of course assumes that you are born again and spirit baptized)

Some may think that I have over simplified the Christian walk but really it is this simple. If we stop and look at our mistakes in life we could find a passage in scripture that deals exactly with these problems. Had we known what scripture teaches on the subject and were obedient we could have avoided them. God has provided the power in and through His word to avoid and repair any (and I mean any) problem in life.

Is God replicating Himself or creating a bride for Jesus? Most people believe that the church’s destiny is to attain the status of the bride of Christ. Somehow and somewhere the idea of being Jesus’ bride was pushed forward without fully studying what this means. As with many spiritual issues there are two sides to this coin which seems difficult to reconcile. While some of you may have caught the incongruence of my writing up to this point, it is intentional. I will explain to the best of my ability, and yet you must realize I don’t have all the facts. This is why I say it is the beginning of the revelation.
