Close Encounters: Part 1 "ADAM"
7 Then theLord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
1. HOW ADAM WALKED WITH GOD IS HOW GOD ORIGINALLY INTENDED IT
TO BE FOR ALL MANKIND FOR ALL TIME
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
Taste and see that the LORD is good…
2. HE BLEW IT!
SIN IS SIMPLY DISOBEDIENCE
3. THERE WAS THE SECOND ADAM
1 Corinthians 15:45-49,
45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being” [f] ; the last Adam, a
life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that
the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of
heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the
heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne
the image of the earthly man, so shall we [g] bear the image of the heavenly man.
1 Corinthians 15:20-22,
20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who
have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the
dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be
12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through
sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—
18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so
also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as
through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also
through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
