But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming,
But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep.
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.
Your dead will live;
Their corpses will rise.
You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy,
For your dew is as the dew of the dawn,
And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.
and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.
You are looking at things as they are outwardly. If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s, so also are we.
And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
