Adam and Eve Being a Type of Christ and the Church (3)

Gen 2:23 And the man said, this time this is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman because out of Man this one was taken. 1 Pet 1:3 ...God...has regenerated us unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

[Part 3 of 3] When Adam awoke from his sleep, he immediately discovered that Eve, who was builded with his rib, was present. Likewise, when Christ was resurrected from the dead, the church was brought forth with His divine life. Through His death the divine life within Him was released and through His resurrection this released, divine life was imparted into us who believe in Him. So, the Bible says that through His resurrection we were regenerated. He was the grain of wheat that fell into the ground and died and produced many grains (John 12:24). We are the many grains who have been regenerated with His resurrection life. As regenerated ones who have Him as life and who live by Him, we compose His church, the real Eve in resurrection. When Adam saw Eve he said, "This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh." When Christ saw the church He might have said, "I have seen the cattle, lions, turtles, fishes, and birds, but none of them could match Me. This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh, for the church is produced by My death and resurrection. The church comes out of Me. The church and I can be one." Many Christians are talking about the church. Some say that the church is a material building and speak of going to church. After seeing the significance of the type of Adam and Eve, we can never again refer to a physical building as the church.
