Every man in the Bible who saw “Him Who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:24-27) was a man of heartache. He was a man of loneliness. He was a man who bore reproach. These three things accompanied those in the Bible who saw Him Who is invisible.

The Exact Same “All”

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

This is another of the early verses that captured my heart and attention to the fact that God would be victorious in bringing His entire creation back to Himself. I saw that the “all” who die in Adam are the EXACT SAME “all” who will be made alive in Christ Jesus. I realized that the passage did not say what I thought it meant, that “all who are ‘in Christ’ shall be made alive.” I saw that it said, “even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” I found my heart rejoicing! Paul was teaching that God will have the ultimate victory in winning His whole creation back to Himself.

I slowly began to realize that what Paul was teaching was that the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ was for every man – not potentially, but effectually.

Christ Is Greater than Adam

Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came on all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of One the free gift came on all men to justification of life (Romans 5:18.)

Christ’s work on Calvary is greater than Adam’s “fall.” All of God’s creation will be gloriously saved by the successful work of “the Savior of the world” (John 4:42).

Salvation is not dependent on us at all. Salvation is ALL about Christ and His work alone. Paul taught that the exact same “all” who are condemned in Adam are the exact same “all” who are justified in Christ (Romans 5:18); and that the exact same “all” who die in Adam are the exact same “all” who are “made alive” in Christ (I Corinthians 15:22). What a victorious Savior we have!

Christianity has an Adam that is greater than Christ; however, it is Christ who is greater than Adam.
