It was the most painful thing for He that created to be rejected by that which He created, because the created chose to reject eternal life with his creator and rather CHOSE to live in total separation from his creator with she whom he loved more than his God, rather than trusting in the truth that his Creator WOULD make a way to redeem the other being created from himself and restore her to life. This the first Adam did, as he chose woman over God and as a result lost his life – He said “I will not drink this cup, my will not Yours be done” In choosing the ‘flesh of his flesh’ over God, he lived momentarily yet died, eternally separated from God.
It was the most beautifully painful yet joyous thing to have the Begotten chose He who had begotten him rather than live in momentary pleasure, with the other begotten, but death eternal, separated from God. This the second Adam did, as He chose his GOD over the will of ‘the flesh of his own flesh’ – He said “Father if it were possible, remove this cup from me, But I WILL drink it, not my will, but Yours be done!” With that, he died momentarily, yet now lives eternally, ONE with God with The name above all other. He made the way through his death that we his bride could live forever.
I dare say that if Adam had chosen to be with God, he may have been temporarily separated from his bride, but that same God would have found a way to restore his bride. He would have provided a ram in the bush as he did for Abraham because He IS – Jehovah Jireh, The Lord who has ‘seen’.
No wonder that the first commandment in the old covenant is this: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” – Adam’s god was woman, and therefore he DIED.
And no wonder that The ONLY commandment in the new covenant is this: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Jesus’ God was JEHOVAH, and therefore WE LIVE!
