READ ROMANS CHAPTER 5 … I DARE YOU!
-The beautiful words of Romans chapter 5 attest to the truth of Adam and Christ. They teach us of the fall and
redemption of man. This chapter portrays the offence and the free gift, judgment and grace, death and life, and disobedience
and obedience. Romans chapter 5 speaks of only two men. These two men are:
1. THE 1ST ADAM
2. THE LAST ADAM
-There are only two men as far as God is concerned. The key to understanding this chapter ( and the entire Bible
for that matter ) is to see all of the human race as having been placed in each of these two men. You must see yourself as
having been placed in Adam. You must also see yourself as having been placed in Christ. This means that the fall of Adam (
the human race ) was: universal, total, complete, and corporate. This also means that the redemption of man was: universal,
total, complete, and corporate.
-Many people will scream from the hilltops that this is not so. They will chime in immediately when they are
told that the fall of man was universal, but will bitterly deny that the redemption of man was just as universal. If the fall
of man in Adam included all men, which it did, but the redemption of man in Christ did not include all men, then what would
that tell us?
-This would mean that the fall of man was more powerful than the cross and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. This
would also mean that Satan ( the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience ), the most subtle beast of the field
which the Lord God had made, would have to be declared as more powerful than the God that created him. IT WOULD MEAN THAT
GOD LOST, AND THAT SATAN WOULD HAVE TO BE DECLARED AS HAVING BROUGHT DOWN MORE SOULS THAN JESUS CHRIST COULD SAVE!!!
-Thank God that this is not the case! It does not matter what the Babylonian church system says. THIS IS NOT
THE CASE! THE TEACHING OF ETERNAL TORTURE IS NOT TRUE!!! There will not be more people lost than there
will be saved. The same amount of people that were lost in Adam shall be saved in Christ! Romans chapter 5 states that judgment
and condemnation came to all, but it also states that THE FREE GIFT AND JUSTIFICATION came to all!
-1st Corinthians 15:22 states, … For as in Adam ALL DIE, even so IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE
ALIVE. BUT EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER: … Take some time today to meditate on these things. Read
Romans chapter 5.
