Founder of Eternity Network International and popular televangelist, Joshua Selma has said Adam was not the first person on earth but that he was just the first man to be created in the image of God.

Joshua who made the claim in a video message shared online said science and the Bible agree on the fact that Adam was not the first person stating that there had been human beings ever before Adam came on the scene.
Though he did not quote any scripture to buttress his claim, he perhaps may be referring to the sons of God mentioned in Genesis chapter 6v1-4. Some have referred to sons of God as fallen angels who mingled with man.
Referring to the creation story, Selman said the word creation was invented to help man understand what took place when man was created pointing out however that in the realm of the spirit all things had been existing before creation.
He said, “Adam was not the first man. Of course not. Adam was only the first man created in the image and likeness of God. Before his arrival there were other “humanoid” species. Both Science and the Bible agree on this.”
Selman reasoned that the making of man already gives us an insight into how man should function.
His words, “The character that makes God, God is what man is created in. God made man in his image and he was told to have dominion. God created man a spirit, a holy spirit. The spirit of God is not the only holy spirit. Man has a holy spirit too. But the spirit of God is the holiest spirit.”
He explained further that if God had left the spirit, he created like that, the spirit would be violating the laws of the terrestrial world.
“Man would remain illegal. God made that man to rule on earth that means he must be made to be compatible with what is on earth. He made man from dust.
Man not made of sand only
“When the Bible says man was made of dust, it is not just sand. Water is involved. 70 percent of man is water just like 70 percent of the earth is water. The bones of man were made in the similitude of rock that is why they don’t rot easily. The eyes of man are made in the similitude of water that is why even witches use water to see.”
With a knowledge of this truth, Selman said believers are able to appreciate that their authority in this earthly realm is based on the light of God they have.
He said God “had to create something in man that became a connecting point between man and God so God could come to man in the cool of the day to interact with man. On that ground he could still speak to Cain and Cain could reply him. The man is compatible both on earth and in the realm of the spirit.”
The realisation that man was created in God’s image according to Selman was disturbing to Satan, he said, “every man has the ability to interact with the realm of the spirit. God designed this realm to be so vulnerable that it will ever depend on the realm of the spirit for it to function.
“The earth has to depend on the realm of the spirit to function. God realised that man has an advantage in the realm of the spirit. It’s not unusual for man to experience the realm of the spirit. The advantage of the realm of the spirit is that it can take you to the past and the future almost in a split second. These are systems of advantage God built in man. The average believer who does not know what this realm is helpless.”
Adam had the ability of God in him
Selma said, “Adam had the ability of God in him. He could do what God was supposed to do. That is why Adam was able to give names to the animals. But it was not Adam who gave the animals their known names, it was the scientists. What the Bible means about Adam naming the animals was that he was the one who gave the animals their identities because he had the supernatural ability of God.
“It was man who had access to the mind of Christ who could reproduce what God could have done. God works through a creation he had built to take advantage of the spirit to supply intelligence. Somewhere along the line, that bridge was broken and man began to struggle.”
"From the Lord’s prayer, Selman said God wanted his kingdom to be a reality here on earth adding also that from “the story of Job we discover that nothing happens in the physical without it first happening in the spiritual. Satan went to God and took permission to afflict Job. We are able to understand that trouble does not just come, it is calculated. But your ignorance allows it to happen. Nothing just happens.
“From the foundation of the earth the lamb was slain. There is nothing that can happen in this realm that has not happened in the spiritual realm. In the realm of the spirit, all things exist. It is already a reality. It is now your responsibility to put in place what does not line with the scripture.”
