The Rib and the Woman
Could forming the woman from the rib of Adam point to the redemption of the Church?

DEEP SLEEP ON THE MAN: UNSAVED BODY BABYLON IN JUDGMENT?

WOMAN FROM THE MAN: CLEAN OUT OF AN UNCLEAN?
Ge 2:22 And the RIB, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Re 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come OUT OF HER, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

CLOSING UP THE FLESH: REDEMPTION OF THE BODY?
Ge 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up <05462> the flesh <01320> instead thereof;
Ge 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh <01320>, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in <05462>.
Le 13:4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh <01320>, and in sight be NOT deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut <05462> up him that hath the plague seven days:
Le 13:5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread NOT in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:
Le 13:6 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread NOT in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him CLEAN: it is but a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
Le 13:11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh <01320>, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall NOT shut <05462> him up: for he is UNCLEAN.
The creation of the woman from the rib of the man Adam appears to be a picture of the separation of wheat and tares or redemption of the body (salvation) in judgment. This would confirm again that without judgment there could be no salvation. The judgment that came on the church (body of Christ) therefore was a necessary step in God’s plan of salvation.
