    Life and Immortality brought to Light

    “Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead,” because the second man Adam is a quickening Spirit, 11 Corinthians 15:21, 45. being “the resurrection and the life.” Therefore in Christ death was abolished, and life and immortality were brought to light in the Gospel, the very day that Adam sinned. If it had not been so, Adam would have died that very day. Abraham and Sarah proved in their own bodies that Christ had abolished death, for they both experienced the power of the resurrection, rejoicing to see Christ’s day. Long before their day, Enoch’s translation without seeing death had proved that its power was broken; and his translation was due to his faith in Christ. Much more, then, was “the Gospel dispensation” in full glory as far down in the history of the world as Sinai. Whatever other dispensation than the Gospel dispensation any people have ever shared, has been solely because of their hardness and impenitent heart, which despised the riches of God’s goodness and forbearance and long-suffering, and treasured up unto themselves wrath against the day of wrath. While unbelievers are under the old covenant, believers are at the same time in the new; for “if any man be in Christ, there is a new creation; old things have passed away: behold all things have become new.EVCO 342.1
