"And so it is written, "The first Adam became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit." - 1 Corinthians 15 V45
"Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new."..." - Revelation 21 V5
In the beginning God created a perfect world, and He created man after His own image. The first man Adam came short of the glory of God when he sinned, and the whole earth came under the curse of sin. Jesus Christ lived His life as a perfect human being, and the Bible calls Him the last Adam. Jesus Christ restored man through His life saving sacrifice on the cross. Jesus Christ mended our relationship with God, which the first Adam had broken. Now we are reconciled to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
