The mistake of religionists is thinking that Adam represented all mankind in the beginning at His Creation, but in reality he only represented who his Antitype, the Last Adam did, who is the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church, from Creation, He and Eve pictured Christ and the Church Eph 5:30-32
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Now we will approach this another way, and show that Adam was the Federal Head of the Wheat, and not the tares who are the children of the wicked one. If we look at the parable of the Wheat and the tares, we will soon realize who first sowed the Wheat, Now observe Matt 13:24-30 ;36-41
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Now Christ gives us some insight on this parable, and Vs 37 tells us who sowed the Wheat, or the Good Seed:He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
It was the Son of Man, the Lord Jesus Christ, and He did this when He Created Adam and Eve in His Image and Likeness Gen 1:26
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness
: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
And Adam was the Good Seed Gen 1:31
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
The godly Seed was Adam and Eve in the Image of God Mal 2:15
15 And did not he make one?
Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed
. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
The Good Seed Vs 37, Sowed by the Son of Man [This indicates that the Son of Man was Present at Creation in Heaven] Who again is Jesus Christ, are the Children of the Kingdom,They are Joint Heirs with Christ Rom 8:17
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ
; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Christ who made the World is also Heir Heb 1:2
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds;
And of course those made in His Image and Likeness are Joint Heirs. Husband and Wives of the Godly are Joint Heirs also 1 Pet 3:7
7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together
of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
