Our change us coming

This is wonderful,

This is mysterious

We struggle to comprehend it

When Jesus reaches down to rapture us to be eternally with Himself

We’re not going to die-but we are all going to be changed.

As fast as our eye twinkles & it’s done

A trumpet blast from heaven,

Those who died will have their bodies reunited with their souls,

In that moment we’ll all be changed. In the resurrection scheme of things,

Everything corruptible perishable aspect of our physical being

Will be transformed & replaced by an incorruptible imperishable body,

Our mortality will be exchanged & replaced by the immortal.

Death is swallowed up by triumphant Life!

Death? Oh, Death, who’s afraid of you now?

Your sting has evaporated

Yes, sin caused death to be terrifying

Yes, the inflexible law exploited us to sin & gave sin its leverage & its destructive power.

But now life, new life, real life transforms us to completely fulfilled victorious Life,

All guilt is removed,

All death is gone,

Jesus Christ Is our conquering triumphant life

1 Corinthians 15:51-57 Paraphrased

As Henry Scott Holland so beautifully noted
