The Mystery Of Wedlock (1st part)
The mystery of conjugal bond has an evincive appropriateness in Eve’s incapability to divorce Adam. It was the practical reality of the prototype union, lying equable in the bosom of the eternal Father, awaiting the historical Spirit-anointing of participatory wedlock between the Lamb and the Church, the annalistic representation of which will eventuate in the celestial realm of the seated Majesty.
The first woman was made exclusively for the man, his rib having been the main component of the creation of the woman. Rev. Chris Okotie, in his exegesis of the extraction of the rib, taught that only the rib looked curved enough to represent the rainbow which God used to make a covenant with man. In the same vein, going by this understanding of the rib connection, a binding conjugal relationship was bonded by the utilization of the man’s rib. Marriage covenant. The woman was made while Adam, the man, lay asleep just as Jesus, his prototype, would. His sinless sleep is a prophetic adumbration of the Calvary’s death of atonement leading to a lying in the tomb to a necessitation of the standing up of the Church. God, her Father-in-law, would, no doubt, have briefed her about her responsibility. She understood. When the temptation arose, she dutifully stuck with her husband.
Eve did behave irresponsibly. She, nonetheless, deserves the proper encomiums for keeping God’s dream alive. God needed to enter into an everlasting relationship with a species of intelligent beings to prove Lucifer’s guilt and sentence to eternal hellish confinement. The first woman fell but she remembered her first love. She remembered the true unwavering love and its lavish engulfing radiation. There was no mistaking the reassuring dispositional affection towards her and the overpowering gentle attachment that she experienced during that walk with the most High. She would rather remain the follower of the God-ordained mortal dust of an Adam than to be a tiaraed goddess of the cosmos.
Lucifer’s beastly revelry would have known no bounds if his chicanery had earned him a triumphant conscription of the original Adamic female. She would have been his most perfect queen. Albeit it would not have made any difference to God’s intended purport, her apostasy would have afforded Satan an expediency to spread the potential importance of seeking spiritual aid from her esoteric deification.

The exclusiveness of the erection of a female for the man’s use highlights the legality of the union. The word ‘made’, in Hebrew, is bânâh (baw-naw’) in the book of Genesis 2:22 “And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.” Bânâh is an architectural term which means: ‘to build, rebuild, establish, cause to continue, to build a house (i.e., establish a family).’ Remember Jesus’ divine promise of Matthew 16:18, “….I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The woman is God’s own building. She is God’s property; an institution created for the portrayal of God’s faithfulness. By the time God brought the woman to Adam he was already standing in the justified rectitude of the dominant ruler of the earth. His consent, as God’s representative, was needed for the consummation of God’s objective. The woman became Adam’s property. Man’s ownership of his wife cannot be viewed in a derogatory manner. He owns her the very manner Christ legally owns the espoused Church.
‘Woman’ in Genesis 2:22 is ishshâh (ish-shaw’): ‘woman, wife, female.’ With an understanding that the Church is the body of Christ it is apropos to analogize that the woman, as the husband’s body, does surround him, hence, his bodyguard. The Church guards the word of God. The Eden ishshâh was a strong woman. Her strength comes from her husband, the lord of the earth, who prefigures Jesus, the true Builder by whose power ‘the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ Amen! Knowing that He was leaving, Jesus had to empower His body with the pronouncement of Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
The rib is reminiscent of the rainbow covenant
We form a mystical bond by the token of the rib. The covenant makes the wedlock a great mystery. It is owed to God the covenant Keeper. God’s irrevocable involvement is the invincibility of the invisible stance of wedlock. Ephesians 5:30 reads, “For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.” The 31st verse reveals an earthly phenomenal, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mot\her, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.” Verse 32 caps it with: “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
Get born again. Say this sinners’ prayer, meaning it from your heart: “Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!” (…to be concluded…)
