The First Prophecy in Scripture is About the Bride

Dear wonderful brothers and sisters of our Lord Jesus Christ, here is your Bridal word for the day.

As far as the earliest prophecy in the Bible, many would say that it is found in Gen 3 after the fall and when the Lord speaks to the serpent saying “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” This is of course prophesying of the coming of Jesus, that Eve’s Seed, the Son of Man, shall bruise Satan’s head, or authority.

But there is an even earlier prophecy than this, and it is none other that of the Lord and us His Bride. After the Lord brought forth the Bride out of Adam, in the same way that the Bride of Christ is in Christ, when Adam awoke he said “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” And here is the first prophecy of Scripture “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Adam was the first created man, he had no father’s house to leave. Paul referenced this same verse in Eph 5:32, and gave us the answer in verse 33 “This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

So there you have it, the Bridegroom and Bride in the Creation story, recorded as the very first prophecy.

Have a great day
