The last Adam was made a quickening spirit

MAN

God made the earth and heavens by Jesus Christ (Gen 1:1; 2 Pt 3:6; Eph 3:9; Col 1:16-17).

From the dust of the earth, and the breath of God, God made Adam a living soul (Gen. 2:7).

From Adam’s rib God made Eve, “the mother of all living” (Gen. 2:22; 3:20).

From Adam and Eve came men, and “in Adam all die” (Gen 5:5; 1 Cor. 15:22).

From David’s seed came Mary, and from her flesh came Christ’s human body (Luke 1:35; Rom 1:3; 2 Tim 2:8)

Christ died for all (John 1:29; 10:17-18; 2 Cor 5:14-15; Rom 5:8; Gal. 2:20).

Christ rose bodily in glory and power (Acts 13:34; Rom 1:4; 6:9; Eph 1:20; Rev. 1:18).

We are dead in Christ (Rom 5:15; 6:4-11; Col 1:22).

The church joins flesh with Christ making a new man (Eph 5:30-32; Mt 26:26; 1 Cor 10:17).

We will be resurrected bodily as sons of God by Jesus Christ (1 Jn 3:2; Rom 7:4, 8:11; 1 Cor 15:42-54).

All creation is reconciled to God by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ (Rom 8:19-22; Col 1:20).

Christ Jesus makes a new heaven and new earth “wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Pt 3:13; Isaiah 65:17; Re. 21:1,5).

The Church will reign with Jesus Christ over heaven and earth forever (Isaiah 9:7; 1 Cor 6:2-3; Rev. 1:6; 2 Tim 2:12).

 

So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:  43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:  44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.  45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.  46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.  47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.  48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.  49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.  50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.  51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:42-54
