New Creation

Paul teaches that a New Creation has dawned upon earth (II Cor. 5:17) as a result of Christ’s resurrection ( I Cor. 15). This new creation of redeemed people is charged with the Adamic task (Gen. 1:26) of subduing the world to the demands of Yahweh. The ministry of reconciliation given to us by Christ is cosmic (II Cor. 5:18-19). What is in view here is a renovation of the world unto the Messiah. This is why the title of ambassadors is used in Paul’s discourse to the Corinthians. Ambassadors deliver a message of peace or war. If war, the exalted Christ will leave no remnant. Messiah’s new world order creates a new humanity that proclaims an ancient message.
