Thanks Be To God

1 Corinthians 15:51-57

 

Today as we look around us from a Christian's point of view; we can see the Bibles many truths unfolding assuring us that we are living in the last days.  And though Christ's return for His bride is seemingly close we cannot be sure we will be in that number that will be caught up in the air.  However we can be sure of one thing, if the rapture does not take us home, that death will be our lot, "For the wages of sin is death."  With that said, Paul said we will not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.  There is coming a day when Christ will return.  In John 14 Jesus said if I go I will come again.  I Thess. 4:16 & 17 says, For the Lord himself shall decend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds and so shall we ever be with them.  When that day does come though we shall not all die, we shall all be changed.  Verse 53 reads "For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on inmortality."  We must be changed because as a child of God we are joint heirs with Christ, and in order to inheirit the kingdom of God we must be changed for flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.  Therefore we must be made like as Chirst which shall be in a moment in the twinkle of an eye .( verse 52)

 

After we are changed, after this corruption puts on incorruption then shall death be defeated and have no more power over the saint of God because at the trump sound the grave must give up it's dead and will be conquered and defeated. (verse 26)  Verse 54 & 55 says, 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?  As we go passing through the skies we will begin to sing a song of victory and triumph for death will have been defeated.  Verse 56 says the sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the law.  Sin is what gives death its

power and the law is what  brings sin, but Christ died that we could be freed from sin and the law. But we are no longer under the law but under Grace, which renders death helpless against us.  Because of that Paul says in verse 52 Thanks be to God which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Thanks be to God for His mercy and Grace for death has been defeated and Christ arose.
