The Second Adam

Spread the love

God created Adam “a living soul”. Christ became a “quickening spirit”.

The first Adam was from the Earth. The second Adam, Christ, was from Heaven. Thus we read in the Scriptures.

Adam was created to fall. Christ was born to redeem the elect of God.

Adam believed the voice of Satan; Christ came to destroy the work of the Devil.

Adam became a slave of sin and Satan; Christ came to deliver the prisoners out of that captivity.

Adam obeyed his own will; Christ came to do the Father’s will.

Adam died; Christ came to give eternal life.

God, the Father, created the world for His glory and to have a people for himself. Adam was created with the freedom to choose between God or Satan. Adam chose Satan because he didn’t know that Satan was a deceiver; Adam believed Satan’s lie and fell in sin and death.

But God had in mind that He himself would provide a Savior for some people. Not for the whole human race, but for those that He had chosen before the foundation of the world. (Eph. 1)

Then Christ came, as the second Adam, to redeem His people and to destroy sin, death, Satan and the wicked. Now, after the resurrection, Christ sits at the right hand of the Father waiting for the time when “all his enemies will be made his footstool.” When that is fulfilled, Christ will come to take His people to a new heaven and a new earth and He will also destroy this present world.
