The Dry Land (Christ) Appearing on the Third Day
Gen 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear; and it was so. (10) And God called the dry land Earth... (12) And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed according to their kind and trees bearing fruit with their seed in them according to their kind; and God saw that it was good. (13) And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Words of Ministry
In the Old Testament, the land typifies Christ as the
generating source. This land was buried beneath the waters of
death and appeared again on the third day,
[the day of resurrection]
. As the record of the Old Testament reveals, every kind of life was produced out of this land: the plant life, the animal life, and even the human life came out of the earth. Man was made from the dust of the earth. This typifies that every kind of life comes out of Christ. After the fall of humanity and during the time of Noah, the land was once again covered by the waters of death, signifying that man was severed from Christ. Humanity was severed from the enjoyment of the good land. After this, the land was recovered again. The land was recovered until the day of Babel when man fell even further and the whole human race rose up in rebellion against God. Thus, God called out a race with Abraham as the father to enter into the high land, the good land of Canaan. This good land also signifies Christ. Abraham was called out of Babel into the good land. We have been called out of rebellion into Christ, our good land. Now this good land is ours, ready to produce life.
