1 Corinthians 15:51-53
1Co 15:51 Notice, I am telling you a mystery. All of us are not going to fall asleep, but all of us will be transformed,
1Co 15:52 in a split second, in a blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. Because it will blast, and the dead ones will be raised indestructible and we will be transformed.
1Co 15:53 Because this person that rots needs to put on indestructibility, and this mortal person needs to put on immortality.
transformed in a split second
All it will take is a split second. Everything that death has destroyed will be brought back. The dead ones in Christ will be made indestructible. Those believers who have not died will be immediately transformed as well, made immortal. Why, because we need it. We cannot fulfil God’s plan as mortals. He has a plan for an eternal kingdom. The last blast of the trumpet will signal the battle that will commence that kingdom. His angels are preparing for that battle. For those angels, that trumpet signals the battle. For us, it signals our rescue.
LORD, thank you for the blessed hope of our immediate transformation at your return.
