The importance of understanding the analogy between the First Adam and the Last Adam, that is the first man created and TLJC.

ROM 5:15  For if by the transgression of the one [Adam] the many died [the human race] much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many -

ROM 5:15 “But not as that transgression [Adam’s original sin], so also is that gracious gift [the work of Christ]. For if by the transgression of [that] one [Adam] the many [human race] died [spiritual death],
much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, by the one man, Jesus Christ, who has provided superabundance for the many [who believe].”
ROM 5:16  And the gift [salvation] is not like that which came through the one who sinned [our Lord's gift is different then what Adam gave us]; for on the one hand the judgment [of Adam's original sin] arose from one transgression [Adam partaking of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil] resulting in condemnation [that is condemnation of the entire human race],
but on the other hand the free gift [salvation] arose from many transgressions [Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world] resulting in justification [anyone who believes in TLJC receives +R and is justified before God].

The Doctrine of Imputations.
Point 1. Definition. What is an imputation?

The English noun is derived from the Latin verb IMPUTARI, meaning to reckon, to attribute, to ascribe, to charge to one's account.
In the theological concepts of the word of God, imputation is used as an act of God whereby either condemnation or blessing is ascribed, attributed, reckoned, given, or imposed on the human race.

An  imputation is the function of the justice of God directed toward mankind and related to the plan of God for mankind.
Imputation functions as an act of condemnation or blessing from the Integrity of God to mankind.
In the plan of God there are times that God imputes to us things that condemn us and other times things that bless us.
God imputes to us the blessing of life but at the same time, He imputes to us the old sin nature passed down from Adam to our physical body as condemnation.

We are born physically alive (which is a blessing from the justice of God),  but at the same time spiritually dead (which is condemnation from the justice of God.)

To solve the problem in this imputation we must go to the word of God for our answers and solutions which is found in JOH 3:3 "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
In the doctrine of imputations we are all born physically alive but at the same time spiritually dead.
The old sin nature was passed down by the male at the moment of conception - PSA 51:5   Behold, I was brought forth [from the womb] in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.

There is no soul life in the womb at that point just biological life which is an extension of  the mother's life.

That's why you have the phrase I was brought forth [from the womb] in iniquity -

That "being brought forth" refers to physical birth which is why David said in  PSA 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from the womb of they go astray from birth.

The imputation of human life to the soul and the imputation of Adam's original sin to the genetically formed old sin nature --- passed down from the father.

This stresses the importance of the virgin birth and why Mary had to be conceived or impregnated by God the Holy Spirit resulting in the only human body ever born without an old sin nature.
Born Once, Die Twice,  Born Twice,  Die Once.
"Born once" means that if you do not become born again, you die twice, once at physical death and then after that, you stand before God at the GWTJ and your life is evaluated as being minus +R.

HEB 9:27  And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,
Deeds is the noun ergons which means their works. What is missing is the noun hamatia which means sin referring to the one sin which takes people to hell, the sin of unbelief,  JOH 3:18.

The point being is that when an unbeliever stands before God they are not judged because of their sins but they are evaluated on the basis of their works which are -R.
If you have been born twice, once at physical birth and the other at your spiritual birth, (you must be born again), then the second death has no power over you.

REV 2:11 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.'
a. The imputation of human life to the soul. b. Adam's original sin to the old sin nature. c. Eternal life to the human spirit.
An imputation may be defined as the action of the justice of God whereby either condemnation or blessing is assigned, ascribed, attributed, superimposed or super-induced to another being.

Once you learn this and understand it, you will see that the plan of God advances with each imputation.

Every imputation is an advance on a previous imputation, though most of you are not ready for this as of yet but you will be if you follow along with me and desire to know the truth.

Every time one imputation is fulfilled another imputation is ready to be fulfilled.
The greatest teacher in the universe, God the Holy Spirit; 1JO 2:27; JOH 14:26; 1CO 2:10-16.

1JO 2:27  And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie,

JOH 14:26  "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

An imputation means something that is ascribed, attributed, reckoned, given, or imposed upon the human race.
1.  The source, which is God Himself. 2.  The nature of the imputation--which refers to what is being imputed. 3.  The recipient of the imputation--which in our study refers to a human being in a specific status quo.
a.  Real imputations, where the justice of God imputes under the principle of the importance of understanding that there is a similarity or a relationship between what is being imputed and where it is being imputed to.
1. human life to the soul. 2. Adam's original sin to the old sin nature. 3. Eternal life to the human spirit. 4.  Blessings in time to the perfect righteousness in man. 5. Blessings in eternity to the resurrection body.
There are two factors involved: what is imputed from the justice of God; and the home or target for the imputation.
b.  Judicial imputations, where the justice of God imputes what does NOT legally  belong to that which it is being imputed to.

There is no affinity, no home or target between what is imputed and the recipient.

Thus, great emphasis is placed on the Source of the judicial imputations which come from the justice of God.

There is NO harmony, agreement, or affinity between the imputation and the object of the imputation, for example, our sins being imputed to Jesus Christ.

There was no home, no target, nothing in our Lord Jesus Christ that was a target or a home for our sins, thus this would be classified as a judicial imputation.

There was nothing in us or about us, no home,  no place in us for God's righteousness (+R) to be imputed to us, it was strictly a grace-gift from God.
1. human life to the soul. 2. Adam's original sin to the old sin nature. 3. Eternal life to the human spirit. 4.  Blessings in time to the perfect righteousness in man. 5. Blessings in eternity to the resurrection body.

The first imputation begins with when you were given life or when you were born physically alive, and therefore the imputation of human life to your soul when you came forth from being in your mother's womb as a fetus.

This is when your life truly began because there is life in the womb but it is biological life which is the extension of the woman's life , it is not a human life or humans soul until the fetus comes forth from the woman.

This is extremely important because it will answer a lot of questions that some people have including the fact that God is the one who chose your parents.

God chose both your father and your mother, in spite of your opinions and your questions, which I will seek to answer which is the first;
"Why did God chose them to be my parents?"

"Why did God choose the parents that He did for me?"

"Why did you give me the children that you did to me?"
It goes both ways, for remember we provided the vessel but God is the one who fills the vessel with a soul.
The word babe is the noun brephos in the neuter, not in the masculine or in the feminine which would have been a male or female but it is in the neuter, it was not a person as of yet.
It was what Elizabeth heard that caused the fetus to leap in Elizabeth's womb, it was NOT what John the Baptist heard who was not even one day old as of yet that caused it to leap.
It was because Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit that caused the response.
This was not the filling of the Spirit of the Church-age with the word pleroo which is the filling within the believer but this is pletho which literally means the filling of the Spirit upon the believer not within.
LUK 1:35 "therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called [not is called but shall be called] the Son of God."

We are also told in the Old Testament that you should give a "life for life" but if there is a miscarriage it is not considered to be a life; EXO 21:22-23.

PSA 22:10 Upon Thee I was cast from birth; Thou hast been my God from my mother's womb.

JOH 3:7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' -- NOT CONCEIVED AGAIN.

JER 1:5  "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."

When the fetus emerges, God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.

Biological life and the sin nature begin at conception; soul life begins at birth.

Life begins when the fetus emerges from the womb and God gives to that fetus, neshamah, "the spark of life," not developed in the womb, but is given by God at birth.

God does not impute neshamah to a blade of grass or to a stone.

The home or the direction of human life is the soul.
When God says.....give life to that fetus it goes directly to the soul which has been formatted or designed to receive life from God.
