The Last Adam and the PassoverMay 24, 2022
The Bible Testifies About the Last Adam
Through the mystery of the Last Adam, let us find the way to receive eternal life in this last age. The goal of the Christian faith is to receive salvation, in other words, eternal life. The Bible testifies about the Savior who give us eternal life.
John 5:39-40 These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
The Old Testament foreshadows the coming of Christ through various Biblical characters such as Moses, David, and Elijah. This is also true for Adam. One of the many ways the Scriptures testify about Christ is through the teaching about the Last Adam. Let us examine this prophecy in the Bible to discover who the Last Adam and how he will give eternal life to humankind.
The First Adam and the Last Adam
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 records the existence of 2 Adams. The first man Adam received the breath of life from God (Gen. 2:7). The Last Adam is the life-giving spirit. The Bible teaches us that God is spirit, and that God alone can give eternal life (Jn 4:24, 1 Tim 6:15-16). Therefore, the Last Adam refers to God who appears as a man in the last days, as the final opportunity for people to receive salvation. Let us examine another writing of Apostle Paul on this matter.
Romans 5:14 … Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.
Adam represents the “one to come.” Reading the context of the Romans 5, it is clear that the “one to come” refers to Jesus Christ. So, Adam represents Jesus Christ, and the Last Adam refers to the Second Coming Christ who appears in the last days for our salvation (Heb. 9:28). So the prophetic similarity between Adam and Christ must be the way they give life. Now we must understand how Second Coming Christ will give us life in these last days. Let us see what Jesus said about us receiving eternal life.
The Way Second Coming Christ Gives Eternal Life
John 6:53-54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.
Jesus clearly testified that only the people who eat His flesh and drink His blood will have eternal life and be raised up at the last day. Since the Last Adam is called the life-giving spirit, He must allow us to eat the flesh and blood of Jesus.
The Passover is the Truth of Eternal Life
How can we eat the flesh of Jesus and drink His blood?
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.”
It was on the night of the Passover that Jesus Christ said the bread symbolized His body, and the wine represents His blood (Matt 26:19). According to His words, by keeping the Passover, we may have eternal life and be raised up at the last day. The first man Adam was able to give life in the Garden of Eden only after his flesh and blood were torn. Through the Passover, we can eat the flesh of Jesus Christ and drink His blood, which was torn and shed on the cross for our salvation. However, the Passover was abolished at the Council of Nicaea in AD325, owing to the schemes of Satan, who does not want God’s people to receive life. From that time on, no one on earth kept the Passover of the new covenant.
Since the Last Adam is prophesied to give us life, and eternal life is given through the truth of the Passover, it means that He will bring the lost Passover. Who has brought us the Passover according to these prophecies? He is Christ Ahnsahnghong. Therefore, Christ Ahnsahnghong is surely the Last Adam and God Himself, the life-giving spirit. Let us believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong and keep the Passover so we can have eternal life and enter the kingdom of heaven.
