The Two Most Beautiful Women - Their destiny


Their destiny:

Eve was the one who invited sin. Paul writes to us in his epistle to Timothy:

And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. (1Timothy 2:14)

And on the other hand Satan could not deceive Jesus, the last Adam. Jesus said:

The prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. (John 14:30) 

Adam, for the love of his beautiful wife, ate the fruit and shared her fate.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (Genesis 3:6)

Christ on the other hand, did no sin, but because of the love for His wife, He drank of that bitter cup and paid the price for her. The Scripture records:

He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. (Matthew 26:42)

When Adam partook of the sin of his wife, the curse was pronounced:

Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field. (Genesis 3:18)

God cursed the ground because of sin, and now thorns and thistles would be symbols of the curse, and Adam had to battle with it all.  So also Christ was cursed for our sins. Paul wrote:

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: (Galatians 3:13) 

Even the symbol of curse—the thorns—was seen when the Jesus bore the curse.  We see a crown of thorns being placed upon His head.

And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! (Matthew 27:29)

He bore the curse on Himself because He loved His wife—the church!

Adam was driven out of the Garden of God when he sinned:

Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden. (Genesis 3:23)

When Jesus bore the sin of the human race on Himself He too was driven out; He was driven out of the gate of the holy city of God, the Jerusalem city. Paul wrote:

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. (Hebrews 13:12) 

It was in the Garden of Eden that sin overcame the first man Adam; and in another garden, the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus overcame the scourge sin, and took the penalty of sin upon Him. It was on a tree—the tree of knowledge of good and evil—Satan overcame Adam; and on another tree—the Cross of Calvary—the second Adam overcame sin and paid the penalty for sin.
