Brothers, this is what I mean: Mortal bodies cannot inherit the kingdom of God, and what decays cannot inherit what does not decay. Let me tell you a secret.

Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will be raised never to decay, and we will be changed. read more.
For what is decaying must be clothed with what cannot decay, and what is dying must be clothed with what cannot die.

"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" Now death's stinger is sin, and sin's power is the Law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus the Messiah!


However, when we are among mature people, we do speak a message of wisdom, but not the wisdom of this world or of the rulers of this world, who are passing off the scene.

By reading this, you will be able to grasp my understanding of the secret about the Messiah, which in previous generations was not made known to human beings as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets. This is that secret: The gentiles are heirs-in-common, members-in-common of the body, and common participants in what was promised by the Messiah Jesus through the gospel. I have become a servant of this gospel according to the gift of God's grace that was given me by the working of his power. To me, the very least of all the saints, this grace was given so that I might proclaim to the gentiles the immeasurable wealth of the Messiah and help everyone see how this secret that has been at work was hidden for ages by God, who created all things.

When the time approaches for the seventh angel to blow his trumpet, God's secret plan will be fulfilled, as he had announced to his servants, the prophets."
