1 CORINTHIANS  15:12 ¶ Now if Christ be preached that* he* rose from the dead,

how say some among you that there *is* no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there* be* no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain..
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, (if so be that the dead rise not.)
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life* only* we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
*****************************************************************************
20 ¶ But now is Christ risen from the dead,
and become the firstfruits of ***them*** that slept.
***********************************************
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall *all* be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits;
***afterward*** they that are Christ’s at his coming.

35 ¶ But some man will say, How are the dead raised up?
and with what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest (is not quickened, except it die:)
37 And that which thou sowest,
thou sowest not that body (that shall be,)
***************************************

38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
************************************************

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 ¶ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 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.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 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.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory*** through our Lord***

1 CORINTHIANS  15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 3
1 ¶ If *ye* then ***be risen*** with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead,
and your life* is hid* with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear,
then shall ***ye also*** appear with him in glory.

1 Thessalonians 4: 13 ¶ But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren,
concerning them which ***are asleep***,
that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so *them also* which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord,
that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord
shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend 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: (first resurrection)
17 Then we which are alive ***and remain***
shall be caught up together ***with them*** in the clouds,
to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Revelation 20: 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them:
and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
(neither his image,) neither had received his mark upon their foreheads,
or in their hands;
and they *lived* and reigned with Christ a thousand years.(first resurrection)
5 But (the rest of ***the dead***) //
lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 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:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand years.

*******The first death******

IS THE DEATH OF THE FLESH

*******THE SECOND DEATH*******

IS THE DEATH OF THE SOUL/SPIRIT

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

1 CORINTHIANS 15
51 ¶ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
*****************************************************
52 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.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 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.

51 ¶ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all*** sleep***

THE TERM ***SLEEP*** here refers to those that died before the return of JESUS CHRIST.

AT THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST
we shall all be changed,
52 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.

THIS MUST BE EXAMINED CAREFULLY
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
There *is* a natural body, and there *is* a spiritual body.
********************************************************

1 CORINTHIANS 15
51 ¶ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall **all** be changed,
*****************************************************
THIS MYSTERY takes place at the second return of JESUS CHRIST.

We are all changed into spiritual bodies (like the angels)

MATTHEW 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err,
not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For ***in the resurrection*** they neither marry, nor are given in marriage,
but are as the angels of God in heaven.
**************************************

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, (FLESH BODY)
and this* mortal* must put on immortality. (SPIRITUAL BODY)

THE CATERPILLAR IS THE BEST EXAMLE WE HAVE PRESENTLY

THE INSTANT THE CATERPILLAR DIES

IT BECOMES A BUTTERFLY

IT CHANGES INTO A NEW BODY
WITH A BUTTERFLY INSTINCT

THE HUMAN IS MUCH MORE COMPLEX

WE AT DEATH ARE CHANGED ALSO
INTO
1) AN INCORUPTIBLE BODY (ALWAYS YOUTHFUL)
2) A MORTAL SOUL (WE REMAIN WITH AN ABLE TO DIE SOUL)

MATTHEW  7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and ***many*** there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life,
and ***few*** there be that find it.
*************************************
***IT IS WRITTEN ONLY A FEW OF US WILL MAKE IT***
1ST RESSURRECTION
ALL FLESH WILL DIE/CHANGED INTO AN INCORRUPLIBLE BODY(ONLY GOD CAN DESTROY THIS BODY)

HERE IS AN ILLUSTRATION WHERE (THE SOUL) IS USED TO REFER TO THE WHOLE PERSON
Genesis 46:26 All ***the souls*** that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob’s sons’ wives, all the souls were threescore and six;

NOW HERE IS A DEEPER MEANING
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body,
but are not able to kill the soul:
**********************************
but rather fear *HIM/THE LORD* which is able to destroy( both )*soul* and body in hell.

OUR SOUL IS ETERNAL IT BELONGS TO GOD AND CAN ONLY BE DESTROYED BY GOD.

WE ARE ALL BORN WITH A MORAL SOUL BECAUSE ALL *HAVE* SINNED.

WE ARE NOT HERE BY ACCIDENT/CHANCE. WE ARE HERE IN THIS TEMPORARY BODY BECAUSE OF SIN.
Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which (have been kept secret) from the foundation of the world.
Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, (inherit the kingdom prepared) for ***you*** (from the foundation of the world:)

NO ONE WITH THEIR ROOTS IN THE USA WILL EVER INHERIT ANYTHING FROM RUSSIA.
INHERITANCE IS TIED TO RELATIONSHIP.
John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou ***hast given me,***(ACCIDENT???)
be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
1 Peter 1:20 Who verily was (fore-ordained before the foundation) of the world,***(ACCIDENT???)
but was manifest in these last times for you,

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were (not redeemed) with corruptible things,

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Psalms 77:15 Thou hast with thine arm re-deemed (*thy* people,) STRANGERS??? NO -WAY
Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
******I have called thee by thy name; (thou art mine.*****)
IF YOU ARE A STRANGER TO ME, IS IT DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHY YOU CAN’T CALL ME BY MY NAME?

the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
EZEKIEL CH 18:4 Behold, (***all*** souls are mine;) as the soul of the father,
so *also* the soul of the son ***is mine***:
the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 12
1 ¶ The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, (and *formeth* the spirit of man within him.)
IS YOUR BIBLE TRUE OR NOT???

2 CORINTHIANS 4:7 But we have (this *treasure* in earthen vessels,)
that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, (FLESH PERISH)
(yet the inward man (is renewed) day by day.) RENEWED/ MAKE NEW AGAIN

17 For our light affliction, which is but (for a moment,)
worketh ***for*** us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen:
*************************************
for the things which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen are eternal.
**********************************************

Psalms 107:2 Let the re-deemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath re-deemed
(from the hand of the enemy; )

WHENEVER YOU SEE( RE-) BEFORE A WORD WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
FOR EXAMPLE:

ISAIAH 5:10 And the (ransomed) of the LORD shall (return,) and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

HOW COULD ONE RANSOM SOMEONE YOU HAVE NEVER KNOWN?

IF YOU SAY YOU ARE RETURNING TO RUSSIA?
WHAT ARE YOU TELLING ME?
ARE YOU SAYING YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO RUSSIA BEFORE?
ISAIAH 51:11 Therefore the re-deemed of the LORD (shall re-turn,)
and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:
they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

GALATIANS 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

JOHN 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;
and that the world may know that thou hast sent me,
and (hast lov-ed them,) as (thou hast loved me.)

JOHN CHAPTER 17
1 ¶ These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self
with the glory (which ***I had***) with thee (before the world was.)

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up (where he was before?)

4 ¶ Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 (Before) I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations
JEREMIAH 1:5.
