Resurrection Through Christ

Get the Audio Version: bit.ly/aud1932


1 Corinthians 15:21-22 (KJV)
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.


There is a profound spiritual principle that today's Bible verses reveal. This principle is that when something is done by a man, it would take a man (and not an angel or spirit) to undo it. If God closes a door, it would take God to open it again. If an angel opens a door, it would be an angel that would be required to close it.

When the Lord opens a door for you, He is the only one that can close it (see Rev 3:8).

Death (corruption and entropy) came into this world through the sin of Adam. Because of this, things don't naturally grow better but grow old, get worse and die. This is not consistent with God's nature and God's creation, man was not created to wear out, grow old and die. But through sin, death, decay, and corruption came into the world.

It was through a man of great stature (pre-fallen glorified man) that death came into the world. In order for God to fix this very serious problem, God had to become a man like us, overcome death, and attain the requisite stature to fix this problem of death. The solution of the death that Adam introduced is the resurrection of the dead that Christ brings. This resurrection is different from the ordinary resurrection that happens to dead people now, it is a resurrection into glory, a resurrection from the corruptible to the incorruptible, from mortality to immortality (see 1 Corinthians 15:42-44).

Adam caused the problem that no other human had the capacity to fix, but in Jesus, God came to fix the problem and all who believe in Him will have everlasting life.

Go into today thanking the Lord for His great love that makes you have the hope of everlasting life in a body that cannot die or grow old.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi.
