He Surrendered and Submerged His Will to the Father’s Will

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

John 6: 38

It will never suffice to reverently address Him in muffled tones, “Lord Jesus” or frenziedly shout “Jesus is Lord! Hallelujah,” or engage in any of the popular forms in the Christian mainstream of praise-worshipping and glorifying Him as “Lord and Savior” or even performing the miraculous,  including casting out demons, using His name—unless the one professing and performing such things is factually and in reality,  doing the will of the Father.

God in His Divine Sphere and Man in His Human Sphere

God in His Divine Sphere and Man in His Human Sphere

      “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 

2 Cor. 5: 21, N.K.J.V.

That, is, God the Father made His only-begotten Son who knew no sin, to be sin for us in order that we might become the righteousness of the Father that resides in the Son. The Creator, in becoming the last Adam through the incarnation, became the human-divine Sin Bearer—who never knew sin by experiment and experience—not even in thought and imagination—became sin itself—not became a sinner, like the first Adam who experimented with sin.

The Power of the Last Adam to ‘Lay Down His Life and Take it up Again”

      “And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness that God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.” 1 Tim. 3: 16, N.K.J.V.

1 Tim. 3: 16, N.K.J.V.

      “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared [partook, K.J.V.] in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.”

Heb. 2: 14

The Purpose and Source of Grace in the Gospel and the Two Adams

The Purpose and Source of Grace in the Gospel and the Two Adams

My King James Version Bible mentions grace 38 times in the Old Testament and 128 times in the New, a total of 166 times.  The untranslated Hebrew is chen, meaning, “graciousness, i.e., subj., kindness, favor or obj., pleasant, precious.” In the New Testament grace is the untranslated Greek charis, meaning, “the divine influence upon the heart, and its manifestation in the life.” Strong’s Greek Lexicon

Take note of the latter fuller meaning of grace that is so strangely missing in the still continuing contentious debates over the phrase, “By grace are you saved, not by works.” I’ve experienced a few in the past (as some of you have), and come away dismayed by those unpleasant encounters. There was no edification because the Spirit of grace wasn’t guiding the discussions. Rather, it was/is one another’s long-held traditional points of view and opinions, often self-serving, thus myopic, that sadly continues to drive such discussions.

From Whom Did the Second Adam Obtain His Humanity? His Divinity?

From Whom Did the Second Adam Obtain His Humanity? His Divinity?

      “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . . . All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” John 1: 1. 4, N.K.J.V. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only-begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” v 14.

      “He is the [visible] image of the invisible God, He is the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through [by, KJV] Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” Col.  1: 16.

The First and Second Adam Compared and Contrasted

The first Adam and the “second or last Adam” share certain specific similarities and dissimilarities, beginning with Name: The first one was literally named; the “second” or “last” one was a spiritual application to God incarnate. 

On the meaning and significance of names in the Bible we quote from the SDA Bible Dictionary, Vol. 8 Commentary Reference Series, art., “Name”:

The Second Adam’s Sufferings: Afflicted, Never Self-Inflicted nor Conflicted

The Second Adam’s Sufferings: Afflicted, Never Self-Inflicted nor Conflicted

     Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted . . .He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he opened not His mouth.” 

Isa. 53: 4, 7, N.K.J.V. 

At that momentous point of Christ’s superhuman agony and travail beginning at Gethsemane and on to Calvary, “the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1: 17), revealed His unchanging  wrath towards sin by not even sparing His only-begotten Son, “for God so loved the world,” to become the fallen first Adam and fallen mankind’s substitute and surety in order that they might be eternally saved, restored once and forever in the relationship they had before the fall. And that through this Sacrifice of the plan of redemption, man might understand that His law of love and life, is immutable, is as eternal, perfect and unchanging as His character is, the very foundation of His eternal throne.

Christ’s Humanity Suffered the Superhuman Agony of Soul in Gethsemane

Christ’s Humanity Suffered the Superhuman Agony of Soul in Gethsemane

The shedding of the atoning, sin-cleansing blood of the second Adam “for the remission of sins” may also be thought of as a short yet intense process commencing in the night of His last agony in Gethsemane and culminated Calvary. It began when He “sweated blood” through the pores of His noble human brow in His death struggle at Gethsemane as the guilt of the sins of the world were rolled upon His human nature and the Father “hid His face” from His only-begotten Son, causing the dreadful sense of separation and connection between Father and Son.

The Second Adam: The World’s Sin and Guilt Bearer

The Second Adam: The World’s Sin and Guilt Bearer

Jesus Christ, the “second” or “last Adam” (1 Cor. 15: 45-47)  was subject to the first death of all mortals because He had to die, not merely “walk in the valley of the shadow of death,” which He also did, but temporarily came under it as the one-and-only, once-and-for-all atoning sacrifice (Heb. 9: 25-28; 10: 10, 12, 14) that the Father made of His only-begotten Son at the antitypical altar of sacrifice of Calvary.

The “wages of sin is death.” Rom. 6: 23. In His death the second Adam, in His human nature “made in the likeness of sinful flesh,” did not die because He fell under the power of “him who had the power of death,” that is the devil” (Heb. 2: 14), because of the following:
