If Adam (Adam+Eve) was the first person, what where his thought's and action's like? If everything we do is a repetition of all of the thing's we have
seen and heard then Adam had no template so to speak. What was he like, was he pure (Enlightened)? Confused? Just a thought............
1 Corinthians 15:45
So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
If Jesus is the "SON", what does that make you? I can show you.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to
himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
The Son is the First Image. That's Adam. The 'new' Adam is what comes next for mankind. You and I are the clay that was stamped by the first image
(DNA) and the new Blood (DNA) will make our new Robe and Crown.
Compare this to a loaf of bread. What is one either side of the loaf? The heel.
1 Corinthians 10
14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving
for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because
there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
Let's review. Adam is one either side of all of mankind. We are the image of God and in the image of God's Son. We are all part of ONE loaf, which
is God, the image used to create the Son, which is the IMAGE of God and used to make all thing hold together. What was Adam thinking? Go look in a
mirror. We are His reflection and He in ours. We are all in God's reflection, yet what is an image? An image is the representation of what the
Go look in a mirror. Do you see you? Yes, but that image is not really you. You are the one that reflects the light. What does that say about
where you are now? If God's image is produced so you can see yourself, where are you right now?
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
How can we see past the image?
1 Corinthians 13
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind
me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
We are children of God until we are no longer children.
I would say Adam was simply allowing God to raise the prodigal Son in the wilderness until the Son decides to come home. We are also in this same
image. Baptism is our immersion into the water of life. Why? To raise to new life.

What crushes the head of Satan? The Heel:
14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
Be glad God knew what would happen from the beginning. It's a process to raise children properly. Lift your eyes. Your're almost home.
