The God of Covenants - Introduction

Lesson 2 • God Makes Covenant with the Last Adam

III. After the Fall, God Creates Another Man with His Word, The Son of Man, and Makes Covenant with Man

Read: Hebrews 1:6-12

Intro: After His death Jesus is re-introduced to the world as the First Begotten or Firstborn. First begotten because He is the first man to be reborn, the first to raise from the death. God gives this new man the authority once given to Adam at the garden of eden.

Jesus said: All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me”Matthew 28:18 AMP.

Jesus man was highly exalted, and given a name which is above every other name (Philippians 2:8-10). As God he is worshipped by angels and all creation.

A.The Word was made Flesh; 

begotten, the Word of power gave birth (John 1:14)

  1. The Word made Flesh became to be the Second or the Last Man (Adam).(1 Corinthians 15:45)
  2. Jesus Christ became the substitute for the price of sin that the First Adam committed by the First man (Adam). Jesus took back the dominion, the authority and inheritance that belong to Man. [see. God of Covenants – Lesson 1 • God Makes Covenant with the First Adam]

B. God Makes Covenant With Man

  • God made covenant with the First Man (Adam) when He said to them “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion….” Genesis 1:28. This gave the first man authority and dominion to rule over the entire creation of God.
  • God made covenant with the Last Man (Jesus) when He said to Him, the Son “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom….” Hebrews 1:8-13. Jesus man was established as King over the entire Heavens and Earth. Jesus’ authority, dominion and kingdom is far greater from Adams’.

Not many of us know that Jesus is the Last Adam as the scripture teaches. We are use to hearing that Jesus is God, and He is, but not much is spoken of His humanity. If we understood more in depth of His humanity, we would be able to comprehend much of how His humanity applies to us now.
