1 Cor 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
The image of the Christian is Christ Jesus formed in her. Her identity is that of the Second Adam.
For every believer the implications of having the identity of the Second Adam, has profound ramifications.
I confess that I understand little. I do know that Adam was created anew. Everything in him was fresh, novel, eternal and unmarred by sin.
He was the archetype and prototype of an eternal humanity created by God to be with Him and enjoy Him.
Had Adam not sinned, God, as the man Jesus Christ, would have not died at Cavalry.
Paul tells us that old things have passed away, and all things have been made new in the Second Adam. In this Adam, what was infirmed was raised in power. What was corrupt and temporal was raised up incorrupt and eternal. What abided in dishonor has been raised up in glory. What was subject to death, is now subject to life.
This is the prospective of the new prototype of humanity whom we now are. God has redeemed us back to His archetype for the eternal person. The first prototype originating from the archetype got messed up. The Christian now is the second prototype.
Of course we are going to die, but I am convinced that we can get much renovation, restoration, healing and deliverance from our new prototype. The sky is the limit for the child of God, in Christ Jesus.
How hungry are we for revelation of the new prototype of eternal humanity? How desperate are we? Know we not that God work best out of holy desperation? Our end is God’s beginning
Are we waiting for the sweet bye and bye when Saint Peter greets us at the pearly gate?
What is the definition of a Christian? What is his purpose? Why did God save us and leave us on earth. Is it to just to go to church, and become part of a Christian ghetto? Or is it to manifest the original archetype of humanity in this second prototype to a dying planet?
God tells us that the world desperately craves for the revelation of this new prototype of humanity that it can become and is in sole possession of the church. If the church does not show it, the world cannot have it.
As those philosophers of old, The Eagles, once sang, and would now sing to the church; “Take it to the limit, one more time.”
