MEN OF THE BIBLE - Adam

Post  Admin on Wed 16 Feb 2011, 5:33 pm

MEN OF THE BIBLE - Adam
[Ăd'ăm] - of the ground or taken out of the red earth.
The first human son of God (Luke 3:38), and God's masterpiece and crowning work
of creation.
The Man God Made
All men should be interested in the history of the first man who ever breathed,
man's great ancestor, the head of the human family, the first being who trod the
earth. What a beautiful world Adam found himself in with everything to make him
happy, a world without sin and without sorrow! God first made, as it were, the
great house of the world, then brought His tenant to occupy it. And it was not
an empty house, but furnished with everything needed to make life content. There
was not a single need God had not satisfied.
The Bible does not tell us how long Adam's state of blessedness and innocence
lasted. But Paradise was lost through listening to the voice of the tempter.
Relieved of his occupation as a gardener, Adam was condemned to make his
livelihood by tilling the stubborn ground, and to eat his bread in the sweat of
his face.
I. Adam was a necessary complement to the divine plan. "There was not a man to
till the ground" (Gen. 2:5). The accomplishment of God's plan required human
instrumentality. God made the earth for man, and then the man for the earth.
II. Adam was fashioned a creature of God, bearing the image of God and
possessing God-like faculties (Gen. 1:27; Ps. 8:6; Eccles. 7:29).
III. Adam was created a tripartite being, having a spirit, soul and body (Gen.
2:7; 1 Thess. 5:23).
IV. Adam was alone and needed companionship to satisfy his created instincts
(Gen. 2:18), thus Eve was formed.
Society, friendship and love
Gifts divinely bestowed upon man.
V. Adam was enticed and sinned (Gen. 3:6). After the satanic tempter there came
the human tempter, and the act of taking the forbidden fruit offered by Eve
ruined Adam and made him our federal head in sin and death. "In Adam we die."
VI. Adam received the promise of the Saviour. The first promise and prophecy of
One, able to deal with Satan and sin was given, not to Adam, but to the one
responsible for Adam's trangression (Gen. 3:15), and in the coats of skins God
provided to cover the discovered nakedness of Adam and Eve we have a type of the
sacrifice of the Cross. In Adam we die, but in Christ we can be made alive. The
first man Adam was of the earth earthy, but the Second Man, the last Adam, was
from heaven and kept His first estate of sinless perfection.
Adam was not only the name of earth's first man and the joint name of both Adam
and Eve (Gen. 5:2), but also the name of a town on the east of Jordan (Josh.
3:16).
