WHAT DOES 1 CORINTHIANS 15:47 TRULY MEAN?


SPELLING EDITED


WHAT DOES 1 CORINTHIANS 15:47 TRULY MEAN?


I get asked all the time what certain verses mean and I have to look them up unless they are very familiar verses to me. And then after I looking the verses up then I remember what they mean in the light of the whole word of Almighty God. So let us begin this study in God’s word by reading this verse of Scripture to refresh our memory.


1 Corinthians 15:47.


“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”


This verse is used bot BOTH the Oneness Christians and the Trinitarian Christians to try and prove that Jesus is Yahweh Himself. The Oneness Christians interpret the word “Lord” as meaning Almighty God Yahweh Himself who manifested Himself to become the Son of man, Jesus but yet REMAIN the fully Almighty God at the SAME time having TWO natures, one divine, and one human. And Trinitarian Christians interpret the word “Lord” as being God the Son who came down from heaven and incarnated himself to become flesh but yet REMAIN the fully Almighty God Yahweh Himself having TWO natures at the SAME time, one divine, and one human.

In other words, Oneness Christians do NOT believe that Jesus PRE-EXISTED as God’s Son in eternity past. They believe that Yahweh ALONE existed in eternity past as the ONE true God in ONE person. And Trinitarian Christians believe that Jesus literally pre-existed in eternity past as God the Son, the second person of the Trinity Godhead that is made up of three separate persons in the ONE true God.

So then, what is the TRUE meaning of 1 Corinthians 15:47? Does the phrase “the Lord FROM heaven” prove that Jesus PRE-EXISTED in eternity past? And if so, then HOW did Jesus pre-exist? Did Jesus pre-exist as Almighty God Yahweh Himself who is ONE God in ONE person called the Father? Or did Jesus pre-exist as God the Son, the second person of a Godhead Trinity God? Or did Jesus pre-exist only in the mind and plan of Yahweh to bring His Son into existence at his virgin birth?

What does the Bible itself teach us on this subjet of WHO Jesus is in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God? The first rule of interpreting the Scripture correctly is to read the CONTEXT. So we will start by reading the immediate context and then we will expand the context if the immediate context is not clear. The immediate context is usually three to ten verses before and after the verse you are studying.


Please read 1 Corinthians 15:44-49.


It is sown a natural body; it is RAISED a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 

45.  And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. (The first Adam is referring to the first human being in Genesis chapter 2 and the last Adam is referring to Jesus)

46.  Howbeit (Or however) that was NOT first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. (In other words, all human beings are FIRST sown in the world with a NATURAL mortal body of flesh and blood. And THEN, if the person is found worthy to receive an immortal spiritual body of flesh and bones, then the spiritual body comes AFTER the natural body)

47.  The first man is of the earth, earthy: (Meaning that like Adam the first STATE of every human is earthly, as in, all human beings are MORTAL) the second man is the Lord from heaven. (Meaning that the Son of MAN Jesus was MADE Lord by Almighty God Yahweh the Father. This verse also means that the first man, Adam, has not yet received his “spiritual” body of immortality. Right now, Jesus is the ONLY human who has been GLORIFIED and has received the divine nature of immortality FROM heaven)

48.  As is earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 

49.  And as WE have borne the image of the earthy, WE shall ALSO bear the image of the heavenly.”


The Greek word translated as “FROM” heaven has many meanings. One of those meanings is “ORIGIN”. And the word “origin” means the SOURCE from where something came.

Here is how E-Sword defines the Greek word that is translated as “FROM” heaven.


G1537

ἐκ, ἐξ

ek    ex

ek, ex

A primary preposition denoting origin (the point whence motion or action proceeds), from, out (of place, time or cause; literally or figuratively; direct or remote): - after, among, X are, at betwixt (-yond), by (the means of), exceedingly, (+ abundantly above), for (-th), from (among, forth, up), + grudgingly, + heartily, X heavenly, X hereby, + very highly, in, . . . ly, (because, by reason) of, off (from), on, out among (from, of), over, since, X thenceforth, through, X unto, X vehemently, with (-out). Often used in composition, with the same general import; often of completion.


 So then, the source of the Son of MAN being MADE Lord came FROM heaven. Jesus did not make himself to be Lord. It was Yahweh the Father who MADE the Son of MAN, Jesus to be both Lord and Christ.


Please read Acts 2:36.


“Therefore let all the house of Israel (And let all Christians) KNOW ASSUREDLY, that God has MADE that same Jesus, whom you have crucified, BOTH Lord and Christ.”


Let us go back and read the first two verses of the immediate context of verse 47 because I did not really comment on the meaning of Jesus being MADE a “quickening Spirit”.


1 Corinthians 15:44,45.


It is sown a natural body; it is RAISED a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. (Jesus had a NATURAL mortal body FIRST and then God RAISED that mortal body from the grave and CHANGED the mortal body of Jesus to a SPIRITUAL immortal body that will never die)

45.  And so it is written, The first man Adam was MADE a living soul; (Or Adam and EVE were MADE mortal human beings. FOR you see, WHY would God guard the tree of LIFE to keep Adam and Eve from eating from the tree of life if so be that God created Adam as an immortal human being) the last Adam was MADE a quickening spirit.”


This verse does not say that Jesus was resurrected as a “spirit”, but rather it says that Jesus was resurrected and made a “QUICKENING” spirit. And when we COMPARE Scripture with Scripture we can see that this verse means that Jesus was GIVEN the power and the authority to GIVE eternal life to whomsoever he chooses in worthy to receive eternal life.

Please read John 5:25-30.


“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.  (To me, this verse is saying two things. The hour that is “NOW” refers to the “spiritual” dead who will hear and receive the promise of eternal life in the world to come. And the hour that is “COMING” refers to the first resurrection of the dead in Christ to being given eternal life to rule and reign with Jesus is the world to come for 1000 years. For you see, not everyone who is dead will hear that voice of Jesus at the second coming. ONLY those who hear and obey the voice of Jesus in this present world will be given eternal life at the second coming of Jesus. But WHERE did Jesus get this power and authority to raise the dead?)

26.  FOR (Or BECAUSE) AS the Father has life in himself; SO has He GIVEN TO the Son to have life in himself

27.  AND has GIVEN him authority to execute judgment ALSO, BECAUSE he is the Son of MAN. (So then, Jesus did NOT come down from heaven AS already being the Lord FROM heaven. But rather, it was AFTER the cross that the Son of MAN was MADE Lord who will BE coming FROM heaven at the SECOND coming of Jesus)

28.  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 

29.  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 

30.  I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.”


The Greek word translated here as the Father which as “SENT” me LITERALLY means the one SENDING me. And in the light of the context, I would say this means the Father will be sending Jesus at the second coming to raise the dead IN Jesus Christ and give eternal life to all the faithful Christians.

I do not know how many Christians have noticed that Jesus was not called God until AFTER the cross. Thomas called Jesus my Lord and my God AFTER the cross. If you remember, Thomas doubted that Jesus was resurrected and he said unless I put my own fingers in his side and in the nail prints of his hands I will not believe our Lord, as in, our master or our teacher has risen from the dead. Also, I do not know how many Christians have noticed that Jesus ascended into heaven right after talking to Mary Magdalene early Sunday morning on the day God raised him from the dead. And then that very same evening Jesus cam back down from heaven and appeared to his disciples.

If you have noticed that, have you ever noticed that Jesus told Mary Magdalene to NOT TOUCH him BECAUSE he had not yet ASCENDED to his God and Father and then that SAME day in the evening he specifically told his disciples to HANDLE his and TOUCH him to see for themselves that he is NOT a SPIRIT? For all the Scriptures, please read the study “WAS JESUS RESURRECTED AS A SPIRIT?” But for now, my point is that clearly seeing that the Son of MAN, Jesus was MADE both Lord and Christ by Yahweh the Father AFTER the cross then 1 Corinthians could NOT possibly mean that an already pre-existing Lord came down from heaven.

To me, this verse 47 of 1 Corinthians chapter 15 can only mean the Lord that will RETURN from heaven at his second coming. Or that the SOURCE of the Son of MAN being MADE Lord is form heaven. And if we broaden the context even further we can see that Jesus BECAME the FIRSTFRUITS unto God. And that means that Jesus is the FIRST human being to be GIVEN the divine nature of IMMORTALITY.


Please read 1 Corinthians 15:20-28.


But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 

21.  For since by MAN came death, by MAN came also the resurrection of the dead. 

22.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 

23.  But every MAN in his OWN ORDER: (In other words, there are THREE HARVESTS and three resurrections. One harvest has already taken place. The resurrection of Jesus has already taken place. So ORDER #1 was the Son of MAN, Jesus) Christ the firstfruits; (That was ORDER #1) afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. (This will be ORDER #2 the second harvest of firstfruits unto God. This will take place in the very near future at the SECOND coming of Jesus)

24.  Then comes the end, (Or then comes ORDER #3 the THIRD and FINAL harvest of the saint. This final harvest of people that will receive the divine nature of immortality like Jesus did will take place at the END of the Millennial reign of Jesus) then he (Speaking of the now glorified Son of MAN who was MADE the Lord of lords and the King of kings) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 

25.  For he must reign until He has put all enemies under his feet. (In other words, Jesus must reign for 1000 years until Yahweh the father has put all the enemies under the feet of His Son Jesus)

26.  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. (Speaking of hell and death being cast into the Lake of Fire after the 1000 year reign of Jesus has ended)

27.  For He has put all things under his feet. But when He says all things are put under him, it is manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under him. (In other words. Paul is saying do NOT misunderstand what I am saying. It should be already obvious to you but just to be sure please know and understand that when Almighty God Yahweh the Father said that he put all things under the feet of His Son Jesus it should be clearly known that Yahweh the Father is the exception. To say this another way, Yahweh the Father is NEVER under and subject to His Son Jesus whom He Himself has put everything else under His Son’s feet)

28.  And WHEN all things shall be subdued unto him, THEN shall the Son ALSO himself be subject unto Him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.”


Can you not see my dear brothers in our Lord Jesu Christ, that Jesus is our BROTHER, a FELLOW human being who was the FIRST human being to be GIVEN the divine nature of immortality. Yes, there is no doubt that Jesus was anointed ABOVE his FELLOWS. There is no doubt that Jesus is the HEAD of the church or the called-out ones. But the Bible also teaches us that Almighty God the Father is the HEAD of His Son Jesus. To us, as Christians, there is but ONE God who alone is the Father. And to us there is but ONE Lord who alone is the Son of Almighty God the Father. Some Christians may argue that I am teaching that there are TWO Gods and there is only ONE God. But what they have failed to see is that there is only ONE TRUE God that has set up or appointed many Gods to rule for Him over parts of His creation. So the Bible itself teaches us that there is only one ALMIGHTY God who alone is THE God OF Gods. Please read the study “ARE THERE TWO GODS?”

Also, below is a complete list of all the studies that I have which show WHY I no longer believe in the doctrine of the Trinity and why I can NEVER believe in the doctrine of Oneness. I assure you that every verse that SEEMS to be saying that Jesus pre-existed in eternity past has another meaning that does NOT contradict any other verses of Scripture in the entire Bible.

Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you CONTINUE to seek the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God

 

Your Brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.

Now, I, myself, do not find one verse in the entire Bible that prophesies of God the Son being sent down from heaven to incarnate himself as the Son of God having TWO natures, one divine, and one human.

And as I promised here is the list of the six main headings that list all the studies I have on this subject as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

I will also give this list of the six following headings again at the end of this study so you can stay focused on one study at a time.

 

>>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<

 

>>>IS THE DOCTRINE OF ONENESS BIBLICAL?<<<

 

>>>WHO OR WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?<<<

 

>>>IS JESUS THE CREATOR?<<<

 

>>>WAS JESUS CREATED?<<<

 

>>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<<

 

And for further studies on false teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ please read the studies listed throughout all the studies here at AMatterOfTruth.com and view the videos under the tab at the top called >>>FALSE TEACHINGS!<<< Under that heading, you will find the facts of what religious groups like Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Islam teach about Jesus as compared to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible, as in, the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And by the phrase “the WHOLE word of Almighty God”, I mean that all verses of Scripture must be correctly interpreted in the LIGHT of the whole word of God and compared with all other correctly interpreted verses of Scripture, as opposed to, interpreting a few verses that are taken OUT of context to teach what is not the truth of the WHOLE word of God. For you see, whenever any INTERPRETATION of a verse of Scripture CONTRADICTS any other verses of Scripture that are correctly interpreted in the light of the whole word of Almighty God then that INTERPRETATION is NOT the correct interpretation. So always interpret the hard “controversial” verses in the light of the SIMPLE CLEAR verses that do not need any interpretation to understand what they mean.

Plain and simple, if the gospel you have been taught does NOT follow the teachings of the WHOLE word of Almighty God under the NEW COVENANT written in the New Testament, then you have NOT been taught the TRUE BIBLICAL Jesus. Again, this does NOT necessarily mean that you are not saved, but rather, that you may not be walking with God in the FULL potential that our heavenly Father desires for you to walk. If you do not understand what I mean by this please be patient, this will all become clear as you read all the studies I give links to within this study. But you must have a sincere desire to know the truth and nothing but the truth.

So let us begin this study in God's word by me giving you a list of titles of Jesus during the days of his FLESH. Again, I will give this same list at the end of this study as well but for now, I would like you to simply read the list of titles of who Jesus was CALLED before Jesus ascended into heaven. There are actually FIVE AGES of Jesus and Jesus is something different in each of those five ages. I will also give the link to the study on the five ages of Jesus at the end of this study as well. But for now, please stay focused on reading THIS entire study first. Here are twelve titles of Jesus as to who Jesus is according to what the Bible ITSELF teaches us in SIMPLICITY.

 

Remember that Jesus is something DIFFERENT is each of the FIVE AGES of Jesus. So please read the study “THE FIVE AGES OF JESUS!”

 

#1. Jesus is the “I AM HE”!

 

Jesus said and if you do not believe I am he you will die in your sins. In other words, Jesus is the fulfillment of PROPHECY! What I mean by this is that Jesus is the one who was prophesied to come. Please read the following studies “PROPHECIES OF JESUS BEING THE MESSIAH!”, 365 PROPHECIES OF JESUS!”, “HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF JESUS!”, “WHO IS THE TRUE MESSIAH?”, and “JOHN 8:24 IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE I AM HE!”

 

#2. Jesus is the Son of MAN!

 

Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Old Testament Scriptures in the ORDER that the events of prophecy were prophesied. So this list of who Jesus is, according to the Bible itself is listed in the order that they were prophesied. In other words, Jesus did not come as the King of kings FIRST. But rather, Jesus was born of a VIRGIN first to suffer for the sins of the people. And then, Jesus will come again as the King of Israel. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF MAN!”

 

#3. Jesus is the CHRIST!

 

The word “Christ” does indeed mean the Messiah but before the Son of MAN, Jesus, actually became the Messiah by his death on the cross, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN. Many times in the Bible the word translated as “SENT” means COMMISSIONED and sending, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity meaning of being sent down from heaven. In other words, God ANOINTED the Son of MAN at his baptism by John the Baptist with His Holy Spirit and power to be able to accomplish the task that his God and Father commissioned or sent him out into the world to do. Please read the studies “JESUS THE CHRIST!” and “JESUS SAID WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?”

 

#4. Jesus is the SON OF God!

 

Jesus was prophesied to be called the Son of God but the Son of MAN was not called the Son of God until his baptism by John the Baptist. This was when Yahweh the Father announced the Son of MAN as being His Son in whom he is well pleased. Please read the study “JESUS THE SON OF GOD!”

 

#5. Jesus is our FELLOW SERVANT!

 

Jesus is our BROTHER. We will be JOINT-HEIRS with Jesus. Jesus is the FIRSTFRUITS unto God. Jesus is the CAPTAIN of our Salvation gone before us. Jesus is the FIRSTBORN of every creature in the image of God. And we are being conformed into the image of God’s dear Son. Jesus is the firstborn among MANY BRETHREN. Please read the study “JESUS OUR FELLOW SERVANT!”

 

#6. Jesus is the ONLY begotten Son of God!

 

To learn the TRUE meaning of “ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God” please read the study “JESUS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD!”

 

#7. Jesus is the FULNESS of the Godhead BODILY!

 

For the true SOUND Biblical meaning of Jesus being the fulness of the Godhead please read the study “JESUS THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD!”

 

#8. Jesus is GOD!

 

And according to the Bible ITSELF, Jesus is “A” God under and subject TO HIS God and Father who ALONE is the ONLY TRUE God. Please BEGIN with the study “37 FACTS TO PONDER ABOUT JESUS BEING GOD!” And under four numbers I will list four things that Jesus is NOT.

 

#9. Jesus is NOT the FATHER!

 

Please read ALL the studies under the heading >>>IS THE ONENESS DOCTRINE BIBLICAL?<<<

 

#10. Jesus is NOT Almighty God Himself!

 

But rather Jesus is the IMAGE OF the invisible God. Please read the study “IS JESUS ALMIGHTY GOD?”

 

#11. Jesus is NOT Yahweh Himself!

 

Jesus came out from God but that does not mean that Jesus is Yahweh Himself. Please read the study “IS JESUS YAHWEH?”

 

#12. Jesus is NOT God the Son, the second person of the Godhead Trinity God who always existed without beginning in eternity past!
