The Resurrection

1 Corinthians

gold star The Resurrection Body

The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven . As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth ; and as is the man from heaven , so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the man from heaven. I declare to you, brothers , that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God , nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery : We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed - in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true : “ Death has been swallowed up in victory. ” “ Where, O death , is your victory ? Where, O death, is your sting ? ” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the LAW. But thanks be to God ! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
