1 Corinthians 15 “45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.”
God created the first man, Adam who was a living being.
But he died because of sin.
He had no life in him anymore.
All humanity physically descended from Adam, and we all die.
1 Corinthians 15 ” 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive”
But Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came as the last Adam.
He died for our sins that were in the first Adam.
Jesus rose up as the last Adam, without sin, fully alive!
We were dead in sin in the first Adam, the origin of death.
When we believe in Jesus, we are made alive in Jesus and we received life from Jesus who is the giver of LIFE !!
We are alive in Christ, forgiven all sins, by grace through faith in His death and resurrection.
The entire human race (born from Adam) died with Jesus on the cross
2 Corinthians 5 “14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again…..17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
We are alive in the last Adam, Jesus Christ.
We are alive in Christ, sinless and righteous!
We are alive in Christ without sin because He took away our sins on the cross, so we are sinless!
1 John 3 “5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. “
Jesus will come back to make a new world as the new Adam
and we believers are His spiritual descendants, we are Sons of God without sin!
1 John 3 “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. “
