    The First Adam, and The Second Adam Scriptures

    1 Corinthians 15:22

    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    1 Corinthians 15:45

    And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. (Jesus)

    1 Corinthians 15:47

    The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

    Hebrews 10

    9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

    10 By the which, will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 7
    Hello Eric. We're so pleased to see the progress you're making with your systematic Bible reading. And you've now reached this great portion of Scripture in Isaiah.

    Isaiah 7:14: "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." It is true, that Immanuel is a Proper Name, but as I understand the significance of this prophecy, it was given as a sign to King Ahaz of Judah that before this Child (Immanuel) would be a little boy, the land & people who conspired to attack Judah would be made desolate & destroyed.

    So the impact of this sign to Ahaz was that firstly, God would enable a virgin to conceive, & secondly, that the Child's Name would signify that this was no ordinary babe that has arrived by no ordinary birth. His coming would be that 'God is now with us', or in the Hebrew, "with us, is God". So, I don't believe that the name Immanuel was to become Jesus' Name, but that by inference, the Name would signify the Presence of God now with His people. For example, one could exclaim: this is Jesus Christ, our Immanuel!

    In Matthew 1:21-25, we see the fulfillment of this prophecy, as the angel proclaimed to Joseph that this Babe will be named Jesus, fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah of Immanuel's coming, i.e. the arrival of God in human form. To give this meaning further support, we could consider Isaiah 9:6, where we read that this coming One would be called, "Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace". See also Jeremiah 23:5,6 (a righteous Branch, The Lord our Righteousness). In very Truth, Jesus was the embodiment of all these Divine attributes, but no one in Israel ever called Him by any of those names. So these names, as also Immanuel, can be understood to be representative of Who this Jesus is: truly God & now called Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God in His incarnation. The Lord bless you in your reading & understanding of His Word.

    Some words came too me in happyness over. I have begun on the road to my hevenly Father.

Am do my services in Your name and pray that all i meet will be safe for eternity. That they'll belive in You Jesus Christ.

    If i walk in the name of Jesus my foot will not touch any harm, and ill not afraid for anything. You i can fear dear Lord. My heart is full of light, and Now one can turn off that light. It will shine bright thru the darkest times, if i climb down on my knees and pray. He the Lord Jesus came and set me free! He is overwhelminly gracious.

    Who cares for me, if not You my Lord and Savior. Romans chapter 3.

    A great, powerful & relevant message by Mr. McGee. Thank you brother for sharing those reminders with us.
  • Chris - in Reply on Exodus 11
    Josiah, the Bible is both an historical book & a spiritual book. It gives us the history of God's creation of the first humans & also His dealing with mankind because of the intrusion of sin in each of our lives (i.e. acts that we do that go against the Will & Holiness of God). No other religion, philosophy, or history book gives us such details with a continuous thread running from beginning to end. Man ultimately must turn to the Bible to learn of his past, present & the future.

    So, if the Bible declares some uncomfortable disturbing facts in our minds (as in Exodus chapter 11 & many other Scriptures), we can rest assured that it was given for both an historical purpose & for our learning. From the example you gave, I learn how wicked man can be (as seen in Pharaoh & his henchmen). I also learn of God's Power to overrule the stubbornness of man & bring to nought the high-mindedness of Pharaoh (they were considered as supreme rulers or even gods). And I see the Mercy of God to save His people out of cruel bondage as He promised & that it took the death of all the firstborn in Egypt for the Pharaoh to finally let God's people leave.

    Many folk, might only see the needless death of so many children & cattle, & that is tragic indeed. But many had to die, as they do today, because of the hard-heartedness & ineptness of their leaders. Many innocent people & children die because of wars, famines & diseases: & all these come upon us because we are sinners & we have raised our fists against the Almighty One instead of falling prostrate before Him in humbleness & repentance. If the Bible didn't relate the whole Truth of the matter, then we might be deluded to think that all is well with our souls & in the world, when in fact we need to know that there are repercussions for our sins & the wicked acts we do to others. Even as in 2 Peter 3:9 we read that the Lord is "longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

    Hi Jesus Ortiz.

    God's goal for man was fulfilled in Jesus. That is the reason He is called the "last Adam"-the first Adam failed so miserably. The Lord Jesus is also called the "second man," not the last man. God sent Him into the world to become a man, and He is the second one, because after Adam it says, "And Adam begot a son in his likeness." He was a sinner; and ever since, Adams have been sinners. All of us are Adams.

    We come into this world as children of Adam. When we are born again we become children of God.

    1 Corinthians 15:45-49. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

    Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

    The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

    As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

    And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

    We've been Justified,

    We're beeing sanctified.

    One day we'll Glorified.

    I Hope that helps.

    God bless.

    Yes, people can get confused about such topics. People can be deceived into believing and doing all kinds of things not supported by God's word. The Bible is clear and you asked a question and received an answer. God bless.

    J Vernon Mcgee on Marks of a false teacher.

    Part 2 of 2.

    Many Christians today will follow a liberal preacher, a false shepherd. There's always that danger, and it's one of the things Paul is warning of. He says the devil makes himself an angel of light. If you could really see him I think you'd see the most beautiful creature you've ever seen, and you can be deceived. There are abroad today many men who are handsome, dignified, never say an unkind word, just lovey-dovey all the way through. But they're apostles of Satan, you see. Nothing in the world but ministers of his. Now that is one group of false teachers, and I think they're easily detected today.

    Now I come to another group, and that is the religious racketeer. I listened to one of them on the radio. Why, he preached the gospel, friends! He even believes in the inerrancy of Scripture. But Paul says beware of those that are taking you away from the simplicity of Christ. Now I detect one little thing in this man's teaching: It involves the idea of sending you little gadgets and going through all kinds of little performances and rituals. It takes you pretty far from the Word of God. That is taking you away from the simplicity that's in Christ. My friend, you and I are lost sinners and we come to Jesus Christ bringingnothingand receivingeverythingfrom Him. And if you're able to give, if you're able to serve, if you're able to witness - that all comes from Him. You can't do anything for Him without being filled by the Holy Spirit. That's the real test. You see, it's so easy to get away from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    J Vernon Mcgee on Marks of a false teacher.

    Part 1 of 2.

    But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works" ( 2 Corinthians 11:3,4,13-15). What are the marks of a false teacher or prophet? First of all, the man today who denies the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ is in the camp of liberalism, and Paul has labeled him a false prophet. That's why I'm rather hardboiled on the liberal preacher. You have a perfect right to deny the deity of Christ, but you have no right to claim to be a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ and then deny the very One that you are preaching. And then "apostle" is a title that doesn't belong to anybody today, so the minute anyone takes that title you can mark him off your list. The office of the apostles went out a long time ago, after the death of the original apostles and those who saw the living Christ. After that it's the written record that they gave to us that we are to turn to.

    To be Continued.

    It will always bring glory to the name of Jesus. If you asked a question, you may receive a scripture. You must find the scripture and pray. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you the meaning.

    His voice is soft. It does not stampede you. Always write it down. Praise and worship the name of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ.

    Your heart will soar with joy unspeakable. Song of Solomon 5:2, 6:3, 7:10. He does speak to our spirit. Our soul does fall deeper in love...with the Lover of our souls.

    This is deeper than male or female.

    This is spiritual. This is a love in the spirit; between us and our Lord. The more time we spend with Him; the more precious is the love we give and receive.

    Everything he speaks is Truth. Heaven will be like this. We can't mob Jesus. He can speak to us individually and personally, at the same time. That's how great He is.

    I just want all to know they can stand this close to Jesus now. Take freely, the Water of Life.

    Welcome to the world of The Antichrist. He doesn't want you to think or speak the Name of Jesus.

    The same time Covid was revealed, government started closing down the churches. The church is still being persecuted! They want us to blame Jesus and His Church, for not warning us.

    Type CHINA in this website SEARCH BOX. See what you see. China and Mideastern nations will be responsible for 3 PLAGUES (mass death events). The info has been in the Bible for 2000+ years. We all had a chance to discover that. But what do we do? We discuss and confuse people with varying explanation of scripture. Matthew 24 and Luke 21, scream it out.

    SATAN IS A MASTER DECEIVER!! HE WANTS PEOPLE DEAD..and in hell with HIM!! If you were a very bad devil, what would you do? yes! This is the BLACK HORSEMAN OF DEATH. Unleashed.

    Not only does the blood of JESUS save us; it inoculates us against disease. WE HAVE TO EXERCISE OUR FAITH and ASK for it. We must be Born Again through Jesus, into the Kingdom of God. Gotta walk in the Liberty HE has provided.

    Your faith is strangling on POLITICAL PEOPLE who clearly do not follow Jesus Christ. Everyone became a mob (like the day They sentenced Jesus to die on the Cross). Prophesy is going to come true when people even know what that is. READ THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.

    Folks, read your Bibles. Pray over what you have read. Go look on google at the Past Pandemics List. Those are plagues. See where they came from. Ask your Senators and Reps. to sanction China foods, meat, everything. Demand that Big Business do the same. For the sake of our children.

    Don't freak out. Think rationally. Make your vote be for LIFE. It's not a game of thrones.

  • How To Tell Unbelievers How To Be Saved - in Reply
    I think Elijah and Moses are the Two Witnesses. That comes later.

    I think the spirit of Elijah is here already. Along with the voices of false prophets.

    So if anyone prophesies In the Name of God, and it doesn't come to pass; we are to not give them credibility or credence.

    What we need to do is to read and soak it up like a sponge, what the Bible says about Elijah's life and ministry. It involves a lot of reading and taking some notes. Listen to some Greg Laurie videos on YouTube.

    It takes much effort to be a 2021 Disciple of Jesus Christ. We have to learn it, teach it, and then preach it to the unlearned. Credit goes to Jesus Christ. Our reward is many more people readied for the Caught Up In The Clouds event.

    We must ask the Holy Spirit to anoint us for the task. 1 Corinthians 12, ask for the best gifts for you.

    This is the generation of Joel 2. And it has to be in your heart to be a part of that.

    The arm of the Flesh cannot "Steady the Ark of God". We need the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. I'm thinking after Jesus went up in the clouds that His Disciples did not fuss or argue over what would become scripture later. Think about that.

    There's going to be a huge push on evangelism. There are a lot of Matthew 24 SIGNS in the earth right now. 3 million Californians have moved elsewhere in the USA. They believe in the earthquake part; massive fires; landslides, droughts, no rainfall. That's 3 mil. we can witness to. If you got saved..you know enough to help someone else believe on Jesus. Leave some tracts on bus and park benches; laying on a sidewalk outside a Costco store or Goodwill.

    At the Bema seat rewards/no rewards judgment your works will appear as gold if you helped someone believe.

    I heard a Christian tell how he got saved. One Christian brother asks the other brother in front of an unbeliever, " Did you know Jesus died for our sins?!" The other guy says " why no! Tell me about it". It works :D

    Think about it.
