Only Two Men in the Universe
Rom 5:19 For just as through the disobedience of one man the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One the many will be constituted righteous 1 Cor 15:45 So also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul"; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit. (47) The first man is out of the earth, earthy; the second man is out of heaven.
Words of Ministry
Have you ever thought that in the whole universe there are only two men? Nevertheless, in the eyes of God there are just two men Adam and Christ. We are all included in either the first man or the second. Adam was the first man. He was not only the first man, but also the first Adam. Adam was created by God, and had nothing of the divine nature and life of God. He was merely God's creation, a work of His hand. Christ is the second man and the last Adam. What does it mean to say that Christ is the second man and the last Adam? It means that Christ is the last man. After Him, there is no third man, for the second man is the last. This second man was not created by God. He is a man mingled with God. He is God incarnated to be a man. The first man had nothing of the divine nature and life of God, for he was merely God's creation. The second man is the mingling of God with His creature, full of the divine nature and life of God. He is a man mingled with God, a God-man. The fullness of the Godhead is embodied in Him (Col. 2:9).
