This Is Really Just Adam's Life Flashing Before His Eyes.

  1. There was a guy who said life is a dream or so it seems, a dream within a dream. What I'm examining is a grasping at straws theology.

    So the basis of reality as we know it, is the dream Adam is currently having as he passes away.

    Since this sounds pretty far fetched, I guess it could be like poetry if you cannot believe it.

    So during the ages of humanity, the voice of God is heard through the dream speaking to Adam. One that really speaks to me is "Absolom, my son, my son, if only I had died instead of you"

    Generally since Adam will die eventually, we will all cease to exist also.

    This is why Jesus, the last Adam was sent, so we could be "saved" by living in an incorruptible body as part of God's dream.

    Currently, because our bodies of this reality construct are connected to decaying Adam, this is why there is connectivity between people, with elements of decay.

    So when people say "I am God" and "everyone is me" as is common in the new age movement today, this is the connectivity of Adam, who was made to be like and look like God.

    However, since Adam died the day he sinned, using the body this way is kind of akin to necromancy.

    How this applies to my reality, is I perceive something of this nature, interacting with me all day every day.

    Anyway those were just some thoughts. Hope you have some good days, I'll continue living in questions, since such things could never be a logical conclusion ... but it may be the way it actually is ... who can truly say?

    Wow. That's some both far out and deep stuff. While I don't see it as a theological doctrine of faith, I do see the poetic or philosophical value of the examination.

    I had a similar idea once. While soaking in prayer I saw in my minds eye a great glass statue of a man. The man was nude and had a beard. Perfect glass, like crystal. It was a very beautiful work of art. The light that it captured and that shined through was breath taking. I realized, this was Adam.

    Then, it began to teeter... and it fell from the pedestal it stood upon. As this enormous statue crashed onto the ground it shattered into billions of shards of glass. It was a disaster. I picked up a shard of glass that was about the size of my thumb and in it I saw my reflection. That single shard... was me. But it was also... Adam.

    We're all Adam. All 7 billion human beings on this planet, though we pride ourselves on our individuality, we're all Adam. The life of the soul is eternal. It cannot be diminished. And though billions of come from the loins of Adam... as a flame can light innumerable candles without being diminished, so too are we each a part of the very soul of Adam.

    This is why we share in the guilt and condemnation of Adam's sin. It was not just Adam's sin, like we materialized out of thin air without any connection to Adam. It was also...our sin because we are all simply living parts and extensions of Adam.

    Jesus came to set things right. By putting His own Spirit in us, we partake in His righteousness. We also partake in His power and authority. All by faith. And so, we become members of His Body, Jesus the Second Adam. We become branches, living extensions, of the True Vine... Jesus Himself.
