Wesley's Notes for Genesis 2:23


2:23 And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones - Probably it was revealed to Adam in a vision, when he was asleep, that this lovely creature, now presented to him, was a piece of himself and was to be his companion, and the wife of his covenant - In token of his acceptance of her, he gave her a name, not peculiar to her, but common to her sex; she shall be called woman, Isha, a She - man, differing from man in sex only, not in nature; made of man, and joined to man.

    In verse 2:21 we find the shedding of blood and adam put under for his bride, which is a picture of Jesus Christ shedding his blood and dying for his bride which is the church.

    I believe when the Word referred to rib it was speaking of RNA. Man and woman become as one by combining chromosomes and a child is born as it says man will leave his parents to do. Also, Satan has many names as revelation says. Far as the Sabbath goes Hebrews tells us the Sabbath can be any day of the week once Christ was resurrected.

    The Lord rested on the 7th day, he did not say He rested on the resurrection day.

    Christine, when we begin our journey with the Lord we turn to ask many questions, but that is okay because we want to know all about God at a go which is not possible by no means. However as we continue steadily searching Him through scripture God reveals Himself and we get most of our questions answered by the Word of God and we become satisfied and friends of God and not angry with God.

    We use Sunday as God's holy day because that's the day Jesus was resurrected from the dead. The Jews and 7th Day Adventist church use Saturday as the Sabbath, God's holy day. Does it matter which day? I don't think so, my Lord and Savior arose Sunday from the dead, so I worship God that day. If others do it Saturday that's their way. Have u heard of a circumsized heart that makes days immaterial.
