Pamphlet 1453 Rapture kc 2-1

What happens to our bodies at the last trump?

Would you like to know a secret or mystery?

The apostle Paul is about to show us one.

In 1 Cor. 15 (read the entire chapter) Paul explains that you have two bodies, a flesh body and a spiritual body.

1 Cor. 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.
There is a natural (flesh) body,
and there is a spiritual body.

He's talking about you and me.

When our flesh body dies we are changed into our spiritual body
and go to be with the Lord.

Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

This is basic Christianity 101.

Now for the mystery!  Paul is speaking...

1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery;
Pay close attention here! This is a mystery (Gk.= musterion, secret or mystery) to most people.
We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
Here's how Dr. Moffat translates it:
1 Cor. 15:51 Here is a secret truth for you: not all of us are to die, but all of us are to be changed -
Hold that thought for a moment...
"not all of us are going to die,
but all of us are to be changed".

Question - Changed to what?

Answer - To our spiritual bodies!

When and how are we going to be changed?

We return to the King's James translation:

[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.
What happens at the last trump,
which is the seventh and final trump,
since there are only seven?

Jesus Christ returns and we "who are alive and remain" are INSTANTLY,
in the twinkling of an eye,
changed from our flesh body to our spiritual body.

Not after Christ has been here awhile,
but instantly at the sound of the trump!

Now, we learned in study #1452 that the son of perdition,
Satan, the spurious messiah, comes FIRST,
at the six trump.

Do you know what that means?

You guessed it!

If you are still in the flesh,
if you still bleed when pricked with a pin,
then Jesus Christ hasn't returned.

Now you know the secret!

Never forget it!
You are still in the flesh when Satan shows up here on earth, claiming to be Christ, i.e. during the tribulation but are changed instantly into your spirit body the moment Christ really returns!

I repeat,
If you still bleed when pricked with a pin you are still in the flesh,
meaning, the real Jesus Christ still hasn't returned.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
