As in Adam, So in Christ

December 27, 2014

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive (I Corinthians 15:22).

The “all” who die in Adam are the EXACT SAME “all” who will be made alive in Jesus Christ. The passage does not say what many think it means, that “all who are ‘in Christ’ shall be made alive.”

Paul teaches that God will have the ultimate victory in winning His whole creation back to Himself. He was teaching that the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ was for every man – not potentially, but effectually.

The Creator Never Fails

December 5, 2014

The final accomplishment of the purpose of God depends on Himself and not on man. The creature may fail, the Creator never fails; and no amount of blunders, mistakes, failures or perversions of the creature shall disarrange or thwart the plans of the Creator. This is our hope; this is the hope of the world; this is the True Basis of Redemption. Man is God’s Own work; He has begun to create him in His Own image and likeness; He will surely finish the work, for He will have a desire to the work of His Own hands (Job 14:15).
