The Last Adam a Life-Giving Spirit16 March 2023
Think about life, who is the only one who holds the power to life and death? Isn’t it God?
The Bible prophesies that there is the last Adam a life-giving spirit who will give us eternal life. Therefore the prophecy about the last Adam who is to appear means Christ will appear to give us eternal life in last days.
The Last Adam a Life-Giving Spirit Who is Christ
First, we need to understand why the Bible refers to Christ as the last Adam.
This is because some Bible characters in the Old Testament are likened to Christ to show what Christ will do.
1 Corinthians 15:45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
This verse states the last Adam is a life-giver. Just as there was the first Adam who was a living being, there is the last Adam who will give us eternal life.
Everyone on earth needs to know then who the last Adam is that will give us life or “save us”. The last Adam is doing the work of the Savior which is the work of Christ.
Romans 5:14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.
Through this verse, we can confirm that Adam is a pattern of Christ who is to come. This means Adam represents Christ. However, it is said “the one to come”. This is referring to the Second Coming Christ because the first coming Christ had already come when this was written. When there is a pattern, we can see what is going to happen next. Therefore the prophecy of the last Adam being a life-giver is fulfilled by the Second Coming Christ who appears in the last days as our life-giver.
One more thing, when you think about “last,” it means it is the last chance. This means Jesus will appear again in the last days and it will be the last chance to receive salvation only by receiving Him.
Christ who Gives Us Life as the Last Adam
Therefore we need to receive the Second Coming Christ to receive life for our spirit. Then how will Christ give us eternal life in the last days?
John 6:53-54 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.
The way Jesus who is Adam gives us eternal life is through His flesh and blood.
Luke 22:15 And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.”
Luke 22:19-20 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
Jesus Christ was celebrating the New Covenant Passover by giving us His flesh and blood through the Passover bread and wine. Then, the New Covenant Passover is the way we can receive eternal life from Christ. During the dark ages in the year 325 A.D. the New Covenant Passover was abolished by the devil and the way of eternal life was lost.
The Eternal Covenant the Sign of Christ in the Last Days
The Passover is an eternal Covenant to be kept indefinitely. Therefore, Jesus who is prophesied to come again as the last Adam will restore the eternal Covenant for us as the way to recognize Him.
Hebrews 13:20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,
Through this verse, we can see the eternal Covenant is made with Jesus’ blood. Between the two covenants in the bible, it is only the New Covenant Passover that is the eternal Covenant. God changed the Old Covenant given through animal sacrifice which is no longer to be kept, to the New Covenant Passover kept with bread and wine (Hebrews 7:11-12).
Therefore since this eternal Covenant is to be kept eternally, when the Second Coming Christ appears He will bring us this eternal Covenant, the New Covenant Passover, as the sign to recognize Him and receive life for our spirit.
Because people were not keeping the Passover of the New Covenant since it was abolished by the devil in 325 AD, Jesus who has come again as the last Adam has restored the eternal Covenant for us as the way to recognize Him. Therefore, according to this belief, Christ Ahnsahnghong, who has given us life through the New Covenant Passover, is the Second Coming Christ. Let us receive Him and the life He has given us.
