…a Bible student's notes…

Thoughts concerning the first and second Adams….

During the night last night and during my 4-hour dental root canal this morning, I wrote some summary statements concerning the current study for the Ladies Tuesday Bible study. These are most definitely “random” thoughts of summary:

  • Adam and Eve failed, short of the goal God had for His creation in the image and likeness of Himself.
  • At the moment of failure, God put an appointment for them in his book, named “once to die and after this, the judgment.”
  • Judgment, interestingly, will be based upon their partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because all “seed” begun in Adam will give accounts of their deeds, whether they be good or evil.
  • Sin did not accrue to mankind’s account until the law – even though Adam conceived in his own fallen image and likeness.
  • The law was given as “schoolmaster” to reveal just how far one has fallen short of the Glory of God – short of the goal and prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.
  • Death, and the resulting “sin” and “life” are KEY words for our understanding.
  • One can be dead, yet live! (as Adam was)
  • One can be crucified with Christ, yet live! (as the Second Adam does)
  • A way to understand this, is through a study of “seed.”
  • Seed of first Adam begets death and sin. We are Adam’s seed by physical birth.
  • We can be the Second Adam’s seed by being conceived from above and begotten (born) of God.
  • Her Seed” in Genesis 3:15 must be born of a woman as “Son of man” to create the one “new man” (creation) in Christ Jesus.
  • The “new creation” in Christ Jesus will inhabit the new heavens and the new earth.
  • EVERYTHING THE FIRST ADAM “LOST,” THE SECOND ADAM ENABLES (GRACES) AND KEEPS!

Some more, even more random:

  • Adam falls short of the Glory of God.
  • The God of Glory appears to Abraham.
  • Christ in you, the hope of Glory.”
  • Adam – created
  • Noah – saved (saving the “seed” of the only uncorrupted family on earth.)
  • Babel – mankind separated
  • Earth divided
  • Abraham, an idol worshiper, called out by the God of Glory
  • Abraham believed God and righteousness accrued to his account! (before the law)

At this point, I read Galatians from my Kindle in between dental procedures. How cool is that!!
