1 Corinthians 15:51-52 and Red Maples and Light Snow in St. John’s Cemetery, Bellevue, Nebraska.
“Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Christ and the Resurrection of the Dead
When we follow Christ death is not the end. Something brighter and far more beautiful than this life lies ahead. The Bible promises us a future resurrection into new life.
At death our body separates and lies in the ground while our soul goes on to be with God. But in the day that Christ returns He will bring a resurrection of the dead. In that resurrection He will reunite our old body (made new and perfect) with our soul in His glorious transformation.
How great is our God that He will grant us such a wonder! Imagine living forever in a body perfect, whole and without blemish. Praise God and amen.
