WORLD GOSPEL KINGDOM TRACTS
Unlocking the Mystery of Human Life
According to God’s Divine Procedure, there are three marvelous steps to fulfill His eternal purpose for man. Now we come to the third step. The first step was to create man as a vessel, the second step was to put this vessel in front of the Tree of Life, and the third step is to work God into man as life (by imparting, dispensing, infusing Himself as life into man). How can God work Himself into man as life? Although you may be familiar with the story of Adam’s marriage, perhaps you have never been impressed with its deep significance.
God created the heavens, which are for the earth, and the earth, which is for man. Afterwards God created man, who is for God, with a human spirit to receive Him. Man typifies God as the real, universal Husband who is seeking a wife for Himself. After man was created, God said of him, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his complement” (Genesis 2:18). Although man was perfect, he was not complete.
Man is a type of God, the real, universal Husband. Before God had secured the proper man, He was alone. It was not good for God to be alone. Although God is absolutely and eternally perfect, He is not complete. To say that God is imperfect is to speak blasphemy. Our God is eternally perfect. Nevertheless, without the Church He is incomplete. Therefore, when God said that it was not good for Adam to be alone, it meant that God Himself was incomplete and that it was not good for Him to be alone. Adam’s need for a wife typifies and portrays God’s need to have a complement. If we see this, every aspect of Genesis Chapter 2 will be clear.
Are you willing to believe into Him as the real Adam and have His life and nature wrought into you that you may become His many members to produce the Church?
One day the real Adam was put to sleep on the Cross where He slept for six hours, from nine o’clock in the morning until three o’clock in the afternoon (Mark 15:25, 33). This was signified by the phrase in Genesis Chapter 2 which said that “God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam” and that “He took one of his ribs” to build him a wife (Genesis 2:21). Adam’s sleep was a type of Christ’s death on the Cross for producing the Church! This is the life-releasing, life-imparting, life-propagating, life-multiplying, and life-reproducing death of Christ to produce the Body of Christ, which is the Church (1 Corinthians 10:17). By producing the Church in this way God in Christ has been wrought into man as life. Firstly, God created man. Secondly, God became a Man. Then this Man with the divine life and nature, was multiplied through death and resurrection into many believers who become the many members to compose the real Eve to match Him and to complement Him! It is through this process that God in Christ has been wrought into man with His life and nature that man in life and nature can be the same as He is in order to match Him as His complement, His counterpart!
Right now you can receive Him and be joined to Him by praying this simple prayer:
O Lord, Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your Divine Procedure in three marvelous steps that I may believe into You and be regenerated with Your life and nature and be joined one spirit with You as my Husband. Lord, save me and regenerate me by Your divine life and nature that I may become one of Your many members built up into Your own Body, the Church. I give myself to You that You may work Yourself into me as life to produce the Church! I confess that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. Right now I receive You as the indwelling Christ into my human spirit that I may become a member of Your Body, Your complement, Your counterpart, the Church! Amen
At the end of Christ’s crucifixion, the soldiers pierced His side and blood and water came out (John 19:34). The blood was for redemption (Hebrew 9:22; 1 Peter 1:18-19). What does the water signify? This water was the flow of His divine life signifying the life, which produces the Church! The rib, a piece of bone taken out of Adam’s opened side, typified this life of which Eve was produced and built. Hence, the bone typifies the divine life that is signified by the water flowing out of Christ’s side. None of His bones was broken! This signifies that His divine life cannot be broken! His physical life was killed, but nothing could break His divine life, which flows out to produce the Church! Christ Himself said, “I will build My Church…” (Matthew 16:18b).
GOD'S PROCEDURES TO
FULFILL HIS PURPOSE: Step 3
THE GOD-CREATED MAN V.
Out of the ground God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air and brought them to Adam (Genesis 2:19). When God brought a horse and monkey to the man, Adam said, “This is a horse and this is a monkey.” God brought all the animals to Adam, and Adam gave names to all the cattle, to all the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field, but he did not find among them a complement for himself (Genesis 2:20), one that could match him. This clearly signifies that Adam did NOT evolve from a monkey as the devilish theory of evolution conjectures. Not one of the animals that Adam named matched him neither in bone nor in the flesh.
What did God do in order to produce a complement for Himself?
One day God became a man (John 1:14). This man was born of a virgin in the town of Bethlehem and was named Jesus. God becoming man was typified by the creation of man. Before creation there was no man on the earth. In order for God to become a man, He had to create man first. Then He could be incarnated to become a man, the God-man!! By God’s sovereign creation a man suddenly came into being. Likewise, before the birth of Jesus in the manger at Bethlehem, God was only God. However, through the incarnation God became a Man. This man is the real Adam. The Adam in Genesis Chapter 2 was a photograph (Romans 5:14); with the birth of Christ in the flesh, the real Adam came! This Man Jesus is the real Adam!
After God finished the work of producing Eve during Adam’s sleep, Adam awoke from his sleep. As Adam’s sleep typifies the death of Christ, so his waking signifies the resurrection of Christ. When Adam awoke from his sleep and looked at Eve he said, “This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh” (Genesis 2:23). As Adam eventually awoke from his sleep to take Eve as his counterpart, so Christ was also resurrected from the dead to take the Church as His complement, His counterpart. The Bible says that through His resurrection we who believed into Him were regenerated (1 Peter 1:3). After we are regenerated, we can have Him as life and live by Him, thus, we compose His Church, the real Eve in resurrection!
What is Regeneration? Regeneration is the impartation of Christ’s life flow into His believers to produce His members to build His Church, His Body.
Are you regenerated? Are you willing to receive His divine life to flow into you that you may be produced and built as His members for the building of His Body, the Church?
What is the Church? The church is a part of Christ; it is nothing less than Christ Himself in all His regenerated members. The Church is the element of Christ in the believers. When this element in so many believers is added together, it equals the Church.
In typology, Adam and Eve became one flesh (Genesis 2:23-24). In actuality, Christ and the Church are one spirit, because he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).
What actually is a member of Christ? It is a person produced with the element of Christ who is the life-giving Spirit in the human spirit. Christ as the life-giving Spirit indwells His believers. When this Christ in His regenerated believers is added together, the sum equals the Church!
Are you joined to the Lord? Won’t you receive His life right now that you may be joined to Him as your Husband?

Let us walk becomingly as in the day; not in reveling and drunkenness, not in fornication and licentiousness, not in strife and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts.
