| | Adam
Adam was the first man created in the image of God. It doesn't mean he was the first person in the world. It means he was created from the dust of the earth or better said, he was created from the earthly teaching. From the word of God. When God breathed his breath into him means he breathed his spirit into him. The rest of the people were there but they were in darkness of God. Darkness was on the face of the deep. That means people were there but spiritually dead or in a deep sleep. The bible is not talking about the people of the world. It is talking about people created from teachings of God . Created to be his people from their teachings. It says Adam lived almost 1000 years. Well Adam and his church is Adam. So even if Adam died at 97, his body or church lived for 970 years.A man and his word or teachings are the same and if his teachings live , so does his church and that is his body. Eve is his bride so she is the church and when she is created from his flesh, that means his teachings. His sons are like us being sons of God because we are born of his son's spirit.Adam was the first person born of the light of God or of the bright nature and that is the image of God. Jesus is said to be the second Adam because he to was born of the Spirit God created man on the sixth day and that is also the prophecy of the people of the world born of the dead teachings and Spiritually speaking this is the time when Man rises from there fall and Adam rises again. Raised because he has become part of the body of Christ and as he rises , so does Adam. Adam are all people born of the dead Spirit now.This is what is meant when they say the dead will rise in Christ.
