DON'T FORGET ABOUT YOUR NEW BODY
WHEN JESUS SHALL APPEAR
WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM
"But some man will say, HOW ARE THE DEAD RAISED UP? and WITH WHAT BODY do they come? Thou fool, THAT WHICH THOU SOWEST IS NOT QUICKENED, EXCEPT IT DIE: And THAT WHICH THOU SOWEST, THOU SOWEST NOT THAT BODY THAT SHALL BE, BUT BARE GRAIN, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But GOD GIVETH IT A BODY AS IT HATH PLEASED HIM, and TO EVERY SEED HIS OWN BODY. ALL FLESH IS NOT THE SAME flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also CELESTIAL BODIES, and BODIES TERRESTRIAL: but THE GLORY OF THE CELESTIAL IS ONE, and THE GLORY OF THE TERRESTRIAL IS ANOTHER. THERE IS ONE GLORY OF THE SUN, and ANOTHER GLORY OF THE MOON, and ANOTHER GLORY OF THE STARS: for ONE STAR DIFFERETH FROM ANOTHER STAR IN GLORY. SO ALSO IS THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. It is SOWN IN CORRUPTION; it is RAISED IN INCORRUPTION: It is SOWN IN DISHONOUR; it is RAISED IN GLORY: it is SOWN IN WEAKNESS; it is RAISED IN POWER: It is SOWN A NATURAL BODY; it is RAISED A SPIRITUAL BODY. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, THE FIRST MAN ADAM WAS MADE A LIVING SOUL; THE LAST ADAM WAS MADE A QUICKENING SPIRIT. Howbeit THAT WAS NOT FIRST WHICH IS SPIRITUAL, BUT THAT WHICH IS NATURAL; and AFTERWARD THAT WHICH IS SPIRITUAL. The FIRST MAN IS OF THE EARTH, earthy: the SECOND MAN IS THE LORD FROM HEAVEN. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and AS IS THE HEAVENLY, SUCH ARE THEY ALSO THAT ARE HEAVENLY. And as WE HAVE BORNE THE IMAGE OF THE EARTHY, WE SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY. 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. O DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING? O GRAVE, WHERE IS THY VICTORY? The sting of death is sin; and THE STRENGTH OF SIN IS THE LAW. But thanks be TO GOD, WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST."
I Corinthians 15:35-57
"For we know that IF OUR EARTHLY HOUSE OF THIS TABERNACLE WERE DISSOLVED, WE HAVE A BUILDING OF GOD, AN HOUSE NOT MADE WITH HANDS, ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS. For in this we groan, EARNESTLY DESIRING TO BE CLOTHED UPON WITH OUR HOUSE WHICH IS FROM HEAVEN: If so be that BEING CLOTHED WE SHALL NOT BE FOUND NAKED. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but CLOTHED UPON, THAT MORTALITY MIGHT BE SWALLOWED UP OF LIFE. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath GIVEN UNTO US THE EARNEST OF THE SPIRIT. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, WHILST WE ARE AT HOME IN THE BODY, WE ARE ABSENT FROM THE LORD:"
II Corinthians 5:1-6
"And he said, WHEREUNTO SHALL WE LIKEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD? or WITH WHAT COMPARISON shall we compare it? IT IS LIKE A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, which, WHEN IT IS SOWN IN THE EARTH, IS LESS THAN ALL THE SEEDS that be in the earth: But when it is sown, IT GROWETH UP, and BECOMETH GREATER THAN ALL HERBS, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it."
"Being BORN AGAIN, NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED, BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE, BY THE WORD OF GOD, which LIVETH and ABIDETH FOR EVER."
I Peter 1:23
"Beloved, NOW ARE WE THE SONS OF GOD, and IT DOTH NOT YET APPEAR WHAT WE SHALL BE: but WE KNOW THAT, WHEN HE (JESUS) SHALL APPEAR, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS. And EVERY MAN THAT HATH THIS HOPE IN HIM PURIFIETH HIMSELF, EVEN AS HE (JESUS) IS PURE."
I John 3:2-3
"And I WILL GIVE THEM ONE HEART, and I WILL PUT A NEW SPIRIT WITHIN YOU; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:"
"A NEW HEART ALSO WILL I GIVE YOU, and A NEW SPIRIT WILL I PUT WITHIN YOU: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh."
