The Last Adam and Second Coming ChristJune 9, 2022
The Bible, which is given to us so we can recognize the Savior, mentions the Last Adam. The ultimate purpose of recognizing the Savior, as well as the goal of our faith, is our salvation, namely eternal life. Therefore, Jesus says that the best way to recognize the Savior is by studying the Bible.
John 5:39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.
To whom do the Scriptures testify? They testify to Jesus. The only way to recognize Jesus as the Savior is to study the prophecies of the Bible. 2,000 years ago, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law failed to recognize Jesus, since they didn’t believe the prophecies. There are many prophecies about the Second Coming Christ, who will appear in our time period. To not make the same mistake the Pharisees and teachers of the law did, we should study the prophecies about Second Coming Christ in detail. The Bible prophesies that Christ will appear a second time as the last Adam.
The Last Adam and Second Coming Christ
1 Corinthians 15:45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
The Bible describes the last Adam as a life-giving spirit. As He is the life-giving spirit, He must be a spirit that gives life, specifically eternal life. Then, who is this last Adam, and how does he give us life?
The Life-Giving Spirit
To start, the Bible describes who Adam represents.
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.
Here, the Bible explains who Adam is. Adam is a “pattern of the one to come”. We can understand that Jesus is the “one to come” in two ways. First, the context of Romans 5 describes Jesus as the “one to come”. Secondly, the Old Testament prophets prophesied about God, who comes in the flesh (ex. Isa 9:6). In other words, since Adam represents Jesus, then the last Adam must represent Jesus who comes in the last days. Second Coming Christ.
The Way the Last Adam Gives Life
Now that we know that the last Adam is Second Coming Christ, how will He give us life, as the life-giving spirit? To understand this, we need to understand how Jesus gave life 2,000 years ago.
John 6:54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.
How did Christ give life 2,000 years ago? Those who participated in Jesus’ flesh and blood were able to receive eternal life. The same is true with the last Adam, Second Coming Christ. Only those who participate in Second Coming Christ’s flesh and blood will be able to receive eternal life in the last day. Then, how can we partake in Jesus’ flesh and blood?
Matthew 26:17-19 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” He replied, “… I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
We can see the scene of Jesus preparing for the Passover with his disciples. Let’s see what happens on this night.
Matthew 26:26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
What is the way to partake in Jesus’ flesh and blood? It is through the Passover bread and wine. By eating the Passover bread and drinking the Passover wine, we can participate in Jesus’ flesh and blood, which ultimately grants us eternal life. 2,000 years ago, Jesus gave life by giving us the Passover. In these last days too, the last Adam will give us life by giving us the Passover.
Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Last Adam
When we put the above verses together, we can understand that the last Adam is Second Coming Christ, who is the life-giving spirit. Just as Jesus gave life through the Passover, so also Second Coming Christ will give us life through the Passover.
The one who revealed to us the Passover is Second Coming Christ, Christ Ahnsahnghong. He has appeared with the Passover, demonstrating that He is the last Adam, the life-giving spirit whom we must seek to receive eternal life. Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Savior and He is the one who will grant us the end goal of our faith, the salvation of our souls.
