Shadows
By
Lee




KJV Ephesians 5:31-32
 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.


What is the great mystery Paul spoke of in verse 32 above?

KJV 1 Corinthians 6:16-17
 16.  What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
 17.  But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.


Paul is telling us that Earthly marriage is a type or shadow of the marriage of the saints to Jesus.

KJV 1 Corinthians 7:14
 14.  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

The children of saints are holy even if only one of the parents is a saint.  With this information I will attempt to tell you the mystery of how a human marriage is a shadow of the relationship the saints have in Christ.

When parents conceive a child it is the Father who plants the seed, the woman has no seed but does have the egg.  During her monthly cycle the mother produces an egg that if not fertilized by the father will pass from her and be forever lost.  This symbolizes everlasting death, that if a human being is not fertilized by the Holy Spirit it will pass away and be forever lost.

KJV 1 Corinthians 15:37
 37.  And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

A human child can be still born as well, having had life but losing it, this is the unpardonable sin in the shadow.  If the seed falls on good ground it will bear fruit, a child and the parents rejoice.  The seed planted will produce a body that does not look at all like the zygote when sperm and egg met.

KJV 1 Corinthians 15:37
 37.  And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

Jesus was the promised seed in Genesis 3:15.  The word seed, in “seed of the woman” should be translated fruit of the woman because the seed is by the Father not the mother but the mother, the church, bears the fruit.  The church must bear fruit unto God, the overcoming of sin.
The seed is Gods Spirit joined to our human spirit that is a new creation just as human parents produce a new child.  The saints are spiritual zygotes and are growing in the womb of the church the bride of Jesus Christ.  If we blaspheme the Holy Spirit we will be aborted but if we fight the good fight, finish the race and keep the faith we will be born into the kingdom of God as an immortal son of God.  Human parents hope to produce a child that is physically sound with all the proper parts and a normal mind.  God is transforming, shaping the saints so that just as we are near to being born, shortly before the tribulation we are perfect, sealed, at one with God. All that is needed from this point is actual spirit birth.

KJV Isaiah 66:8-9
 8.  Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
 9.  Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.


God will bring forth a new nation of beings, His sons of the first resurrection that will come forth, be born at once in one day.  God will not close up the womb but will continue to produce even more children during the millennium and second resurrection. This physical creation is only a shadow of the true creation God desires, the spiritual.  Jesus was the first of this spiritual creation, the first delivered, first born of many.  Jesus was the first holy seed, the promise God made to Abraham and the saints through Jesus become holy seeds by adoption.

KJV Romans 8:14-23
14.  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
 15.  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
 16.  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
 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.
 18.  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
 19.  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
 20.  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
 21.  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
 22.  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
 23.  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.


The human reproductive process is a shadow of what God is doing with His saints through Jesus Christ.

KJV Galatians 4:4-6
 4.  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman under the law,
 5.  To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
 6.  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

KJV Ephesians 1:5
 5.  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Jesus is the sower who sows the seed of his Fathers Spirit on good ground to bear fruit.  We are the dust of the ground, Mary was the dust of the ground and God planted His seed, Jesus, in her dust and Jesus became a vine of which we , the saints, are the  branches.  The parables of Jesus speak of this shadow in many ways.

KJV Matthew 13:34-35
 34.  All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
 35.  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.


This information combined with the understanding that carnal man is a beast and needs transformed is a revelation of spiritual wisdom.
