As in Adam, So in Christ

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.
