Title: Resurrection of Christ

Date: 26/07/2013 (Other)

Speaker: Maurice Roberts

Bible Reference: 1 Corintians 15:35-58

(1Co 15:35) But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

(1Co 15:36) Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

(1Co 15:37) 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:

(1Co 15:38) But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

(1Co 15:39) All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

(1Co 15:40) There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

(1Co 15:41) There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1Co 15:42) So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

(1Co 15:43) It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

(1Co 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.

(1Co 15:45) And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

(1Co 15:46) Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

(1Co 15:47) The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

(1Co 15:48) As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

(1Co 15:49) And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

(1Co 15:50) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

(1Co 15:51) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

(1Co 15:52) 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.

(1Co 15:53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

(1Co 15:54) 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.

(1Co 15:55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

(1Co 15:56) The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

(1Co 15:57) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

(1Co 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
