From the City of Adam unto the Dead Sea
Joshua 3:15-16 - And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,) That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.
The Hebrew word 'Yarden' - Jordan means 'descender'. The crossing of the river Jordan meant receiving our true inheritance. We can do this when we become descendants via Jesus Christ - the seed to whom the promises were given. That happens when the image of Christ is seen in us, in fullness.
When the Lord split the Red Sea, He made enough passage for the Israelites to pass through, but when He split the River Jordan He did not do the same. The river Jordan was in it peak, for during the harvest time it banks overflowed. When the twelve priests who bore the Ark stepped in the river, its waters were cut off right from the city of Adam at one end to the salt sea, which is the Dead Sea. This symbolizes on the day of harvest all the generations from Adam to the last human on the Day of Judgment will be cut off for the passing of the sons of God into the true promise land - the Heavens.
Within the Israelites there were only two who passed from Egypt to the promise land, with them passed all the others. In a similar way in the last days the image of Christ will revealed in but a few and that would be sufficient for God as victory of man over sin (sinful nature that came through Adam). We are all laboring towards this from generation to generations.
All things in Heaven and on Earth have been put under the authority of Lord Jesus Christ and in the end what are His; He will receive unto Him into His Kingdom - the New Heaven, and the remaining He will reject unto destruction.
