Did Adam sinned? how? there was no Law to break. all man are Sinners, but all man are Sinners because of the Sin from Adam.

but still, How in the world did the the first man who is Adam, sinned?

Adam committed Trespass. the Trespass brought the Sin therefore Adam sinned. because of the Sin from Adam and because all man are Adam’s seed, all man sinned.

Romans 3:23 (NIV)

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Romans 5:12 (NIV)

12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned

Since all sinned, all died. sins cannot make a man Sinner but the Sin.
the Trespass brought the Sin brought the Death to all man

again. all sinned because of the Sin from Adam. all man are Sinner not because each man have committed sinful actions but because of the Sin from Adam that each man or the many have become Sinners.

 

the Gift

now, Jesus brought the Gift bought by His blood. the Gift is Righteousness, available to all man. to all man who are Sinners who are Adam’s seed.

Romans 5:17 (NIV)

17 … those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

the Gift must be Receive. the Gift must be Received by all Sinners by Faith not by works. Receiving the Gift is an expression of Faith.

 

the Trespass

What about the Trespass? the Trespass made all Adam’s seed Sinners

Romans 5:15 (NIV)

15 … For if the many died by the trespass of the one man

Romans 5:17 (NIV)

17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man

 

the Trespass, caused all man who are Adam’s seed to die AUTOMATICALLY AND UNWILLINGLY

 

But the Gift is not like the Trespass

Romans 5:15 (NIV)

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!

 

Why is the Gift not like the Trespass? Why are they NOT EQUAL?

Because …
the Trespass made all man AUTOMATICALLY Sinners
the Trespass made all man UNWILLINGLY Sinners

But …
the Gift shall not make all man AUTOMATICALLY Righteous
the Gift shall not make all man UNWILLINGLY Righteous

 

If the Gift, just like the Trespass, will AUTOMATICALLY AND UNWILLINGLY make all man Righteous, then the Gift IS LIKE the Trespass. NO WAY! MAY IT NEVER BE! the Gift IS NOT like the Trespass!

 

Receive the Gift

How does a man of Adam’s seed become Righteous? by Receiving the Gift

Romans 5:17 (NIV)

17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

 

the Gift is not like the Trespass because the Gift must be Received

Receive is Lambánō in greek

lambánō (from the primitive root, lab-, meaning “actively lay hold of to take or receive,”) – properly, to lay hold by aggressively (actively) accepting what is available (offered). lambánō (“accept with initiative“) emphasizes the volition (assertiveness) of the receiver.

 

a man must actively receive the Gift. God cannot Receive the Gift on man’s behalf because God is the one offering the Gift and man is the recipient.

It is also not passive receiving but Actively Receiving. those who Receive the Gift of Righteousness are Righteous.

 

 

to be continued. this is a 3 part series. please stay tune for the next post. on the next post we will discuss “the many WILL BE made”
