Second Adam: The Second Adam Is Full of God's Grace - Pastor Chukwuemeka Asiegbu


“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”
1 Cor 15:45 – 47 (KJV) 

Talking about Grace, it is the nature of God before the inception the earth, and God cannot change, this also is what the Second Adam has come to showcase to the world. Before the arrival of the Second Adam, there has been so much misconception of who God is, in terms of what He can do and the things that He cannot do. So many things that are not of God were attributed to Him in the prophets. Such negative revelation of God’s deportment was one of the things the Second Adam addressed during His era, through inculcation of the right doctrine to His audience.

While doing this the Pharisees and Sadducee of His time found that offensive and as a result they antagonized virtually everything He does. They took it upon themselves to discourage people not to listen to Him and as well they put well-structured bottleneck strategies in place in order to frustrate His effort in fulfilling His mandate. 

His mandate was to totally implement the prophecies that were declared concerning Him, through obedience and also to bring people to faith to a system of government that has never being established here on earth. This system of government is the Kingdom of God. In the declaration and introduction of the Kingdom of God, He started relating and releasing to people what the Kingdom is like by a demonstration of the Power of the Kingdom.

 
In fact, no one or any prophet in the past cast out demons, their works and operation against people were attributed to God, as an evil spirit from God. The ministry of the Second Adam demystified the operation of the demons as from Satan and not from God. He demonstrated the prowess of the Kingdom by healing the sick and delivering those who are oppressed by demons and giving them freedom. Many were fed not just with physical food, but spiritual food even the poor got their share (Acts 10:38)

This really debunks the belief and thoughts people held about and against God. He came to express the nature of God to His people. The notion that God is a killer and a destroyer was neatly wiped away through His teachings, miracle works and right judgments whenever the situation arises. His dispositions to the issues of life, especially as regards to people’s relationship with God epitomize the real nature of God, which indicates the opposite of what they have known about God.

 There was so much confusion about whom He really is. Many couldn’t place their hands on it and say for sure He is the messiah; the complexity surrounding His identity makes matter worse to them that had the desire to admit that He is the messiah. This situation does not affect the commoners only, it was such a bothering situation to the elites as well, and they are also caught up with His identity issue and crisis. 

At one time one the elites who couldn’t bear it any longer, decides to come to Him by night to privately talk to Him and eventually get a soothing answers that will quench his worries. He started out by flattering Him, digging much about His activities, but at the end he got an epic reply that looks very odd. He went ahead to let him know that what matters at the end is not the activities but that one should be in the Kingdom of God.

Nicodemus couldn’t chew the reply he got from Jesus, because of its odd nature, and in fact he shouldn’t be blamed for his rhetoric response, because naturally what Jesus said was seemly impossible to imagine at any time by any sensible person. Surprisingly, to make matters worse for Nicodemus, Jesus said that His statements are just earthly things and not even heavenly things. 

That indicates that getting born again and Kingdom of God are just earthly issues and yet an elite like Nicodemus do not know about them (Jn 3:3–12). And of course if earthly things like getting born-again is incomprehensible for Nicodemus well heavenly things should be a no go area for a man of senses like him and as well as the Pharisees and the Sadducee. No wonder they found it difficult to pipe down His teachings.
