God created only one man in his image and likeness and that was Adam, let’s see what the scripture has to say about it in Genesis 2:7 “then the Lord God formed [that is, created the body of] man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being [an individual complete in body and spirit]”(AMP).
If God had created numerous men, it then means that only Adam and Eve would have been driven from the garden of Eden because they were the only one that ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
.I actually feel that when man fell, all that God created for man to have dominion over started to work against man, that is why a Lion that was suppose to be man’s friend became an enemy after the fall.A scorpion that was suppose to be a man’s friends is now an enemy.I actually feel that when man ate of the corruptible seed all that was created had a change in nature.Like the animals becoming carnivorous, herbivorous etc.
They became the exact opposite of their original nature.
Adam was created in the image and likeness of God, it took the effort of God the father, the word and the spirit.
An image is a reflection of who you are, if you stand in front of the mirror, what would you see? You would see an image of yourself.
Just picture what God did with the created man from the above illustration.Man had the insight of God, he could see the way God saw things, he had God eyes.
He had the mindset of God, he thinks the way God thinks.
He strategized the way God strategize.
He was decked in God’s glory, he was clothed in God’s beauty.
He had the ability to call those things which be not as though they were.He saw things from the eyes of eternity that was why he could name the animals.
The man God created is different from the man after the fall.
The man God created had God’s nature, but the man after the fall took upon him the nature of the tree of good and evil, which was the Adamic nature, every man birthed after the fall took upon them the nature of Adam.
Another Adam had to be sent to break the adamic nature in man and to release the God life.
1 Corinthians 15:21 “For since [it was] by a man that death came [into the world], it is also by a Man that the resurrection of the dead has come” .
Vs 22 “For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive”.
Vs 23 “But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s [own will be resurrected with incorruptible, immortal bodies] at His coming”.
1COR 15:21-23 AMP
