Lord From Heaven

The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 1 Corinthians 15:47
 
This verse appears in the apostle Paul’s famous passage about Jesus’ sinlessness in contacts to Adam’s sin as the first man. Here, Adam origin as a being created from the dust of the earth (see Genesis 3:19) is contrasted with Jesus’ divine origin as the Lord from heaven.
 
When Jesus completed His mission on earth as our Redeemer, He returned to His Father in heaven (see Acts 1:9-11). He is now seated in heaven at God’s right hand (see Colossians 3:1), where He intercedes on our behalf with God the Father (see Romans 8:34).
 
Just as Jesus came into the world from heaven when the time was right (see Galatians 4:4), so, too, will He return one day to bring the earth as we know it to its conclusion, in accordance with God’s plan. As Christians, we should be looking forward with watchful readiness to that glorious day (see Matthew 25:13).
