The Cup Of The Fruit

21 May

The Cup Of The Fruit…

Adam fell through the partaking of a fruit. Jesus came as the second Adam to undo his fall. As Adam partook of the fruit of the trees, so Jesus, on the sixth day, also partook of fruit as He drank the cup of the fruit of the vine.

This time, the fruit was crushed, as Jesus’s life would likewise be crushed. Adam ate the forbidden fruit and was sentenced to death. Jesus drank the cup of crushed fruit and then was led to his death. Adam was taken from a garden to the place where he would die. Jesus would also be taken from a Garden, the Garden of Gethsemane, to his death.

We who follow the Lord are told to partake of that same cup— the cup of the Lord’s Supper. It’s not just a cup of fruit, but of crushed fruit. For by partaking of the crushing of Jesus and His death and dying to self is the power to overcome the curse of Adam. The more we do so, the more we will overcome, for the blessings of the Tree of Life now come to us in a cup of crushed fruit.

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

Today, partake of the crushing of Jesus by dying to yourself and overcoming the curse.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
