FIRST TIME SEX IS MARRIAGE #3
God made no provision for a second person in the life of a man or woman. Polygamy is utter confusion; polyandry is abominable. That is the hallmark of unregenerate humanity. The image of the beast that subrogated the image of God in Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden has been developing since then and will become fully mature in the last seven years of this dispensation. Every unregenerate person has this image. The beastly nature of unsaved mankind will become more and more evident as this age of grace winds to a close.
The Lord God put Adam in the Garden of Eden and gave him a commandment. Adam was a single physical being and if he had continued in that state when the serpent came with temptation he would not have fallen because the Bible says “Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” God did not bring Eve to Adam merely to admire and do nothing. “Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man” (Gen 2:22). He was supposed to complete the marital process by going into her. He refused, neglected to do so or was afraid to marry her. God designed marriage as a stronghold against deception. The only way a man and a woman can be joined in marriage is through conjugal sex, the first time.
Eve was beguiled. Eve was deceived because when the enemy came as a serpent she was unsure of who she was. She was neither married nor single. The soul of a woman is not designed to stand alone. That accounts for the reason for the most part women are more desperate to get married than men. Adam did not consummate his marriage to Eve when the tempter came with subtlety.
Godly wedding does not lead to sin but away from it. That is why the language of marriage is conjugation. Misunderstanding of this has led to terrible marital turbulence, domestic violence and premature death. It is an avoidable tragedy not through abstinence from marital responsibility but by obeying the word of the Lord on marriage, which simply put involves love and submission.
God gave Adam a woman to be his wife. The God-ordained way for a marriage to come into existence is through sex. Adam did not know Eve until after the fall. Consequently, Adam and Eve were technically not married at the time of temptation and fall. As a woman who is supposed to be married Eve was not “a man.” She was inchoate. She had no spiritual covering; her soul was floating, as it were. Bodily she was not one with Adam her husband.
Why did Adam accept the fruit Eve gave him to eat knowing the full consequences? It stands to reason that he could not in good conscience blame Eve for what happened. He knew he was at fault. He accepted responsibility for the tragedy. While the discourse between Eve and the serpent was on-going, Adam was there, close enough to Eve to observe and hear what was said. When Eve misquoted the Lord Adam did not caution her. When she plucked the forbidden fruit to eat, he did not exercise his headship position to stop her and order the serpent to depart. The mystery of why he disobeyed God and sided with Eve fully aware of the disastrous consequences may not be unveiled totally until we see Jesus in glory.
If Adam had known Eve before the tempter came, Eve would not have been able to act independent of her husband. Consider that both of them were perfect, sinless before God. Adam had a celestial spiritual body, so also Eve. Adam’s soul was tied only to God, so also Eve’s. Adam’s physical body was without spot, wrinkle or blemish, but alone, so also was Eve’s physical body. Adam and Eve needed to enter into a blood covenant through first time sex for changes to occur in their personalities to cement their relationship. In their case sex and marriage was compulsory because they were the only human beings on earth at that time.
There would have been an exchange of spiritual imprint. This would have imposed Adam’s power of headship on Eve that demands total submission. Eve would not have ignored Adam who was with her and Adam in turn would not have left Eve to do as she liked. They would have sensed themselves in each other. Up to this moment Adam treated Eve as a stranger and vice versa.
Godly soul-tie is the divine apparatus for the flow of agape-love. Love vaunts not for itself. Love is inclusive and does not neglect responsibility. Eve’s love for Adam would have constrained her from “flirting” with a being that she had no business interacting with in the presence of the man God gave her to be her husband. Agape-love would have constrained Adam to disallow Eve with the potentially dangerous discussion with the serpent he recognised as Satan in disguise.
The spirit of jealousy is not always evil. A pregnant woman knows she is carrying a body that belongs not to her alone but to the man who impregnated her. If Adam and Eve had sealed their union with sex, Eve would have been conscious of the fact that she was carrying the body of Adam. Conversely, it would have been the same with Adam; he would have realised that he had given part of himself to Eve.
With spirit, soul and body affected in the proper manner, it would have been difficult if not impossible for Satan to separate man and woman and deal with them. But Adam knew Eve his wife after their fall from grace. The result of their subsequent copulation could be pleasure only or pleasure with the joy of conception. Eve became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. “Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, ‘I have acquired a man from the LORD.’ Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground” (Gen 4:1-2). Adam could have had children without Eve being brought out of him. “Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 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’” (Gen 2:22-23).
Adam knew Eve his wife after the following things happened to him consequent upon his disobedience to God’s commandment. He lost the image of God, the Hypostatic Chip that made him a son of God and became a son of the devil; he died spiritually with physical and eternal death looming ahead of him. The image of God in Adam left him and was replaced with an image from Satan. That image was a demon, one of a multitude of fallen pre-Adamites. This satanic image converted Cain into one that shades blood. He became a murderer and probably died without repentance.
If Adam had known his wife before he sinned against God this is what would have happened. He would have produced offspring like him, sons and daughters of God, with Hypostatic Chips planted into them in the womb. Except Adam, Eve and the Lord Jesus Christ who came into this world with the image of God in their spirit, all who come into this world do so as children of the devil bearing the image of Satan in their spirit. It was for that reason that God gave very strict instructions to His chosen people of Israel on sex and sexuality. Under the Law of Moses fornication and adultery were absolutely forbidden.
This is the concluding part. Thank you for reading.
