Mother Eve Created
As the Creation of Adam was at the close of the Sixth Day, the Creation
of Mother Eve is indicated as having been accomplished in the beginning of
the Seventh Day. However we view the matter, the first pair were created
approximately in the beginning of the Seventh Day or Epoch, which is now
nearly completed. Mother Eve was merely a portion of Adam separated from
him for a special purpose--for the propagation of a race. Adam possessed
originally in his own person the qualities masculine and feminine which
subsequently were divided between him and his wife, when she was taken
from his side.--Genesis 2:21-23; 1 Corinthians 11:8.
Adam for a time was alone in Eden, finding no congenial companionship
in the beasts and the birds. Mother
Eve was his mate, bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. Their very
difference of quality and disposition made them the more companionable to
each other, because each found in the other the desired complement. They
twain were one; neither one was complete without the other. The feminine
qualities of Adam's perfection he still possessed--in Mother Eve.
was the father of the race and failed to give it life. Jesus is to
become its second father, the Second Adam, through whom everlasting life
may be attained.--1 Cor. 15:21.
Eve was associated with Adam in the sin and disobedience which brought
the penalty. So the Elect Church, the Bride of Christ, when completed,
glorified, will be His Joint-Heir in His Kingdom, and His associate in the
"regeneration" of the world during His Messianic Reign.--Romans
8:17; Matthew 19:28.
Another suggestion has been offered: Jesus declared that those who
attain to that resurrection will neither marry nor be given in marriage.
As Adam originally possessed all the qualities of character, masculine and
feminine, so humanity, when fully restored to the image and likeness of
God, will re-attain perfection of individuality. Sex divisions will then
be no more. Earth will be filled with sufficient population.--Luke
