The Creation of Woman; Adam and Eve a type of Christ and His Church

Part one

First, when God began His final work by casting Adam into a deep sleep.
And so did the second Adam lie three days in a sleep of death, before the creation of His bride could commence.
While the first Adam slept, God opened his side and took a rib wherewith He made the woman.
So while the second Adam slept in death upon the cross, a soldier pierced His side, so that there came forth blood and water; and by means of that blood, without the shedding of which there could never have been remission of sins, the Church is now in process of formation "Thou didst purchase unto God by Thy blood men of every tribe, and tongue, and people and nation." Revelation 5: v 9
When God had made the woman He brought her to Adam. So God is now bringing the elect in Spirit to the heavenly bridegroom, and no man can come unto Christ except the Father draws him. And so the answer to Christ prayer will be answered.
"Father, I will that they also whom Thou hast given Me, be with me where I am; that they may behold My glory which Thou hast given me." John 17: v 24

Upon receiving his wife Adam said "This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh."
Paul affirms "For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones." Ephesians 5: v 30

Adam then proceeds in saying, she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man. She partook of Adams nature; therefore she should be called after his name.

His church has been made partakers of His (Christ) nature. And it will culminate in. "I will write upon him My new Name." Revelation 3: v 12

We may see how evidently the history of Adam and Eve foreshadows wondrous things in its reference to Christ and His Church.
