Originally God had Ordained man to be made a little lower than the angels that he might Drive Out for God the enemy from the earth and its immediate heaven.
Man was to Destroy all the powers of Satan and be Crowned with Glory and Honor that he might Rule Over God’s creation.
But man had fallen and was thus not able to Rule.
It was for this cause, then, that the Lord Jesus came.
He took upon Himself man’s body of flesh and blood and become the Last Adam.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:45
Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
