When Jesus Comes Again


When Jesus Comes Again

But our homeland is in heaven, 
where our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, is; 
and we are looking forward to his return from there. 
{21} When he comes back, he will take these dying bodies of ours 
and change them into glorious bodies like his own,
 using the same mighty power
 that he will use to conquer all else everywhere.
Phil 3:20-21 (TLB) 
 

Every human being has a body just like Adam's, 
made of dust,
but all who become Christ's will have the same kind of body as His--
a body from heaven. 
{49} Just as each of us now has a body like Adam's, 
so we shall some day have a body like Christ's. 

{50} I tell you this, my brothers: 
an earthly body made of flesh and blood 
cannot get into God's Kingdom. 
These perishable bodies of ours are not the right kind to live forever. 

{51} But I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret: 
we shall not all die, but we shall all be given new bodies! 
{52} It will all happen in a moment, 
in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. 
For there will be a trumpet blast from the sky, 
and all the Christians who have died will suddenly become alive, 
with new bodies that will never, never die; 
and then we who are still alive shall suddenly have new bodies too. 

{53} For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die, 
must be transformed into heavenly bodies 
that cannot perish but will live forever.
{54} When this happens, then at last this Scripture will come true--
"Death is swallowed up in victory." 

{55} O death, where then your victory? Where then your sting? 
For sin--the sting that causes death--will all be gone; 
and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge.

{56} {57} How we thank God for all of this! 
It is he who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord!

{58} So, my dear brothers, since future victory is sure, 
be strong and steady, always abounding in the Lord's work,
 for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever wasted 
as it would be if there were no resurrection.
1 Cor 15:48-58 (TLB) 

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Th 4:18 (KJV)
