From Adam's Side

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman,
Genesis 2:21& 22

In the Book of Genesis, the bible says the God put Adam to sleep and took out of his side, woman. When He took from Adam's side the rib, he created a being full of an emotional side that was originally there in the original image of God.

From his side he pulled passion and true worship. He pulled a seat of love and expression. In a marriage relationship, the man is put back together, that is why God called them Adam. He pulled the dept of emotion and outward physical demonstration.

Though Moses and the children sang about the Mighty victory that the LORD gave over the army and the pharaoh of Egypt, it was the women led by Miriam, his sister that showed the height of emotion in worship for this great gift. The scripture below shows how they began to play and dance before the LORD in great joy. He is a great God! We see in churches today that usually women are they first to shout and dance before the LORD.

Exodus 15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

Though her husband thought it best to solve their problem by marring another wife, Hannah solved her problem of barrenness by weeping and praying before the LORD until Samuel the prophet was born. It was her emotion that touched the heart of God.

Mary chose the good part her attention span was always at the side of Jesus, listening to every word, as in a love (agape) affair with him, Peter said of himself, Lord I love (phileo) you, meaning, you are my friend, I do not agape-love you.

It was women whose passions to see that the body of Jesus Christ was properly taken care of brought them to the tomb first. Because of the passionate, emotional act, they were the first to know in excitement the Jesus had risen from the dead, and that His body was no longer lain there. It also was Mary Magdalene who saw Him first instead of one of the apostles, who were men. The gift pulled from the side of Adam, caused her to believe the unbelievable. We also see that it mentions that women received miracles…

Heb 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again:

The woman in Proverbs 31 show much talent ability, and service to her family, yet much personal worth.

This woman was a wife, but Miriam was not yet good works were also found in her. The apostle Paul said it is better if a woman stays single in order to do those things that please the LORD.

There are attributes of a woman that were removed also with the surgery that the LORD did on Adam. Mary did not need a man to conceive Jesus Christ for the kingdom of God, even though a husband did remove her shame for those who did not know the truth of His birth. We are not speaking of what is obviously apparent, yet Adam's only purpose was not to name animals. An important thing was to be considered that Adam and the LORD walked in the cool of the evening together. When this was not enough he was given a companion.It was not a primary thought, it was a secondary thought. The primary though was Adam's, or mankind's relationship to the LORD.

It is our hope that this article will allow women to see that in themselves they have something to offer kingdom of God, and the world in which they live. It is important to cling to the scriptures and this writing doe not go against the Word of God, but to also see all that is in them.
