For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive…Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

- IS MAN IMMORTAL?;
Christ is in the process of putting all enemies under His feet, and every time a soul comes to Him in gospel obedience, every time that the fetters of sin are broken in our lives, that is a victory for Jesus Christ. Paul explains that in very plain and even poetic terms in this passage. Nearly all Christians believe in immortality; that we will live after death. But how will we live? In what form will we exist? In eternity, will we simply transition to an invisible spirit world, or will we actually have a body?
Will it be the same body we have now? Will it even be a literal body? The atheist says that death is the end; the believer says that there is life after death. But throughout the ages, those believers have struggled to understand exactly what life after death means. The ancient Greeks did not believe in the possibility of the resurrection of the dead, and the Corinthians came from that background.
On one hand, they had accepted the testimony of the apostles: that Jesus had been raised from the dead. But then they turned around and denied that a resurrection of the human body was possible.
So, Paul addressed that in his letter to them. But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Here is a person who is not really wanting to understand the resurrection. Rather, he is making fun of it, as if to say, how can this be?
Do you really believe that a dead person can be raised? How can God possibly raise the dead, and if they were raised, what would they even look like? What kind of body would they have? You see, the resurrection is not a natural process. It is a supernatural event. God created the natural universe, so He is by definition a supernatural being.
If you can get past Genesis , you can believe the rest of the Bible. They understood that he was proposing that the body itself would be raised. Throughout the Old Testament, we catch passing glimpses of the doctrine of the resurrection. This is not a doctrine that Paul came up with. It was not merely a New Testament concept or promise.
We certainly see enough to know that the saints of God believed in a resurrection. The Bible tells us how he was able and willing to do that. The patriarch, Job, in the very twilight of human history, comforted himself with the same glorious hope in his time of sorrow and trouble. But what was referred to only occasionally in the Old Testament became a prominent doctrine in the New Testament church. The word resurrection occurs more than forty times in the New Testament.
Immortality was a vague promise and a mystery to the saints of the Old Testament, but Paul would later say to Timothy that Christ, by His appearing hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality to light by the gospel 2 Timothy Now, we see in Jesus the reality and the promise of the resurrection of the dead. Paul said that some would say How are the dead raised up and with what body do they come? Paul answers this question of the skeptic first of all with the picture of a seed.
We plant seeds in the ground, and look at what happens. I have a hard time really understanding what happens to a seed when you put it in the ground; how a plant life, a beautiful flower emerges from that. But we DO know that it is a reality, of course.
We know that it is a fact. Paul begins to unlock the mystery with this comparison of how the bodily resurrection will occur by showing that if a seed can produce a plant, then in like manner, the human body can live again. It is remarkable how a seed works. Something amazing happens to it. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him.
Even so. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead. Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.
This is the first resurrection. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Shall I ransom them from the power of Sheol? Shall I redeem them from Death?
Ephesians 6 – Hope Harbor Church
O Death, where are your plagues? O Sheol, where is your sting? Compassion is hidden from my eyes. The dead do not praise the Lord , nor do any who go down into silence. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,. For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,.
Therefore encourage one another with these words. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see.
To him be honor and eternal dominion.
