Resurrection of the Dead
Glory of God
“Unless A Kernel of Wheat
Falls To The Ground And Dies,
It remains only a Single Seed.
But if it Dies, it Produces many Seeds.”
“Anyone who Loves Their Life will Lose it,
Anyone who Hates Their Life in this World,
Will Keep it for Eternal Life.”
“Whoever Serves Me Must Follow Me;
Where I am, My Servant also will be.
My Father will Honor the One who Serves Me.”
“Now my Soul is Troubled, and what shall I say?
‘Father, Save me from this Hour’?
It was for this Very Reason
I came to this Hour.
Father, Glorify your Name!”
Then a Voice came from
“I have Glorified it,
and will Glorify it again.”
Cf. John 12:23-28 – Jesus Christ
Note: 🡆Jesus was Glorified (Resurrected) Twice
Parable of the Mustard Seed
“What shall we say the kingdom of God
is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it?
It is like a Mustard Seed, Which is the Smallest of all Seeds on Earth. Yet when Planted, it Grows and becomes the Largest of all Garden Plants, with such Big Branches that the
Birds can Perch in its Shade.”
Cf. Mark 4:30-32
The Resurrection Body
“How are the Dead Raised?
With what kind of Body will they come?”
What you Sow does not come
to Life unless it Dies.
When you Sow, you do not Plant the Body that will be,
But Just a Seed, Perhaps of Wheat or of something else.
God gives it a Body as he has Determined,
To each kind of Seed he gives it’s own Body.
The body that is Sown is Perishable (The Seed),
It is Raised Imperishable (The Plant);
It is Sown in Dishonor (The Seed),
It is Raised in Glory (The Plant);
It is Sown in Weakness (The Seed),
It is Raised in Power (The Plant);
It is Sown a Natural Body (The Seed),
It is Raised a Spiritual Body (The Plant).
If there is a Natural Body (The Seed),
There is also a Spiritual Body (The Plant).
So it is Written:
“The First Man Adam Became A Living Being”;
“The Last Adam, A Life-Giving Spirit.”
The First Man was of the Dust of the Earth (The Seed);
The Second Man is of Heaven. (The Plant)
The Plant did not come first,
But The Seed,
Then the The Plant.
As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the
As is the Heavenly Man, so also are those who are of;
Just as we have Borne the Image of the Earthly Man (The Seed),
So shall we Bear the Image of the Heavenly man (The Plant).
Flesh and Blood Can NOT Inherit the
“Kingdom of God”
Listen, I tell you a Mystery:
We will not all sleep,
We will all be changed,
In a Flash,
In the Twinkling of an Eye, at the Last Trumpet.
For the Trumpet will Sound, the Dead will be Raised Imperishable,
For the Perishable must Clothe itself with the Imperishable,
and the Mortal with Immortality.
When the Perishable has been Clothed with the Imperishable,
and the Mortal with Immortality, We will be Changed,
then the saying that is Written will come True:
“Death has been Swallowed up in Victory.”
“Where, O Death, is your Victory?
Where, O Death, is your Sting?”
The Sting of Death is Sin,
The Power of Sin is the Law.
But thanks be to God,
He gives us the
Through our Lord,
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Cf. 1 Corinthians 15:35-58 – Apostle Paul
Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened
that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.
Cf. 2 Corinthians 1:9
