The Last Adam
You will find as you search the scriptures that Jesus Christ is called by many names. One of those names is, The Last Adam. Scripture reads: “ And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam {Jesus Christ} became a life giving spirit. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven” Here we have both Adams in contrast. The first Adam was created by God and was placed in the garden of Eden. The Second, or Last Adam is the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, he came to make right what the first Adam lost. That one act of sin committed by the fist Adam effected all of humanity in that all were born sinners. That one act of the Last Adam on Calvary’s cross also effected all of humanity in that all can receive salvation. The first Adam was a son of God and resided in the Garden of Eden, the Last Adam was a Son of God and found comfort in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Scripture tells us: “ Nevertheless death reign from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who {Adam} is the figure, or likeness of Him {Messiah} that was to come. The bible tells us that when God created the first Adam in the Garden of Eden, He made him to look like the Messiah, Jesus Christ, who was to come to earth centuries later. When Jesus Christ walked this earth He ministered as the Last Adam, that is why He always referred to Himself as The Son of Man. He was tracing his humanity all the way back to Adam, for he is the father of all humanity, including Mary the Person of which Jesus obtained His earthly body.

Many people think that Jesus Christ ministered on this earth as God, but the fact is He ministered as the Last Adam, for He came to restore what the first Adam lost. Jesus was God, but He did not minister as God for that would have disqualified Him from redeeming humanity. You have to understand that it was not God that sinned, but man, so it had to be a man that died for humanity’s sin. The wages of sin is death, God cannot die, so how could Jesus minister as God, for He died on the cross. When Jesus was in Haven He was totally Spirit and God, why would He leave heaven to become a man to become God. He did not come to hearth to become God, but to become Man. “ For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost. When Jesus Christ walked this earth He ministered as a man empowered by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was so lead and influenced by the Holy Spirit that it appears as if He was acting like God, but in fact it was the acts of the Holy Spirit, the Power of God that actually gave Him the Power. Jesus tells us that we can do even greater works that He did because He was going to send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. Any person that is lead by the Holy Spirit of God can do the works of God, even as Jesus did.

The Last Adam came to earth to take back what Satan had stolen through the disobedience of the first Adam. He had to accomplish this as a man, not as God. Jesus came and regained the dominion that God gave to Adam. Now that Jesus has taken back the dominion, for He has declared, “All power has been delivered unto Me, in heaven and on earth.” He has delivered it back to the sons of God. For He has said;” Behold I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy {Satan} and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Are you walking in the dominion that the Last Adam, Jesus Christ has delivered to you?
