Adam And The Cup Of Crushed Fruit

Adam And The Cup Of Crushed Fruit…

When Adam fell, it happened through the partaking of a fruit. Jesus came as the second Adam, to undo his fall.

As Adam partook of the fruit of the tree… so Jesus, on the sixth day, also part took 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, His death, by dying to self, is the power to overcome the curse of Adam.

The more we do so, the more we’ll overcome. For the blessings of the Tree of Life now comes to us in a cup of crushed fruit.

Think of an area in which you need to die to self? Embrace that dying. Accept it. And start rising in His resurrection power.
