THE LAW OF IDENTIFICATION

Ye must be born again. (John 3:7)

 

“What Satan did in Adam, God reversed in Christ.” – Mark Hankins

 

The whole Bible is really about two men: the first Adam and the last Adam. Adam is the old man, and Christ is the new man. As we shared the same identical condition with Adam, we now share the same identical condition with Christ (Romans 5 and 6).

You can find Adam’s condition in whatever language you speak – Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Swahili, or English. Anywhere you go, you can still find Adam talking.  He is saying, “I am sick. I am poor. I am confused. I am depressed. I want to kill myself. I want to kill some- body else.” You can find Adam’s language everywhere because the whole human race is identified with Adam. You can trace your family tree all the way back to Adam.

The Law of Identification is “Adam in Christ.” One man got us into this mess, and one man can get us out. Your experience with Jesus can be so real it changes your identity! The second birth, when you are born again, puts you in the new Adam and you are a new creation!

 

Confession: Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
