    For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate conformed to the image of his Son,

    that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29

    Are we presently conformed to the image of his Son? ----- I say no.
    What is that image? ----- the last Adam a quickening spirit. Howbeit that not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. Part of 1 Cor 15:45,46

    Note the last Adam was not first spiritual but soulish, a living soul, as the first man Adam was the figure thereof Rom.5:14, after the resurrection the last Adam made spiritual, quickening spirit.

    That is the image of God that we shall be re-born in, the image of his resurrected Son.

    God has given the the Holy Spirit as earnest of the above, because Jesus went away in death; And God his Father raised him from the dead, gave Jesus the promise of the Holy Spirit and then it could be given us in his name. Eph 1:14 Acts 2:32,33 Gal 1:1 John 16:7 John 14:26

    He, Jesus, is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. A new creation in the image of the invisible God.

    Adam was going to have to be regenerated from the moment he was created.

    God is calling the firstfruits of the Spirit to reign with Christ in the kingdom of God for; ----- Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; in him: Eph. 1:9,10 ----- or as Paul put another way; ----- To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Cor. 5:19

    God through a living soul created in his image subject to death was going to send his Son into the world/earth by the seed of the woman taken from the living soul created in his image, to destroy Satan the devil who had the power of death thus destroying death and redeeming the world/earth unto himself.

    And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness upon the face of the deep. Gen. 1:2

    Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, ----- Was already in the garden God planted in the East of Eden where God put the man, before the woman was taken from him.

    That needs to be considered whether C or A.
