Body and Soul
 
 
Let's Ask God for Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding In His Word, We Ask in Jesus Name
 
Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Ecclesiastes 12:6 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

1 Corinthians 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

  • Hope in Christ "Everyone" will be raised and changed into their own spiritual body

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

  • All in Christ shall be made alive, "Everyone" will be raised and changed into their own spiritual body.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

  • All in Adam die, Means born of Flesh
  • For since death is through man, also through a man is a resurrection of the dead.
  • As all die in Adam, so also all will be made alive in Christ
  • All will stand before God. Whether it be to good or bad they will be judged.
  • Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

  • Notice every man in his own order or time. Christ is the first fruit that was resurrected after the crucifixion and the remnant shall be resurrected at His coming.
  • John 14:6  The others shall come in their own time, or when they have been taught fully and accept the son. Only through Christ can anyone reach the Father. Only through Christ can anyone attain eternal life.
  • Paul's teaching us that all mankind has a relationship to Adam in that we all die in a fleshly body. Now Christ's relationship to man is Kingship and Saviour.
  • It is He who brings salvation and for this purpose, all must be "raised" meaning made alive, but not necessarily to the state of eternal life.
  • Why?
  • Because they shall have the free will opportunity, having been taught the truth, to choose to worship Christ and through Him to attain eternal life.
1 Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
  • Corruptible: decayed, perishable
  • Incorruptible: undecaying (in essence or continuance)
  • Corruptible body: means your flesh body you were born with.
  • Incorruptible body: Means your spiritual body after the death of the flesh.
  • After your fleshly body dies, you will be raised and changed into your own spiritual body.
  • Verse 40 Is saying: Your heavenly body is your own spiritual body.

43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

  • You are born with a flesh body, which means liable to die, and raised into heavenly spiritually body.

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

  • Natural body, is the body you are born with. 
  • Spiritual body is your heavenly body.
  • Ecclesiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
    7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
  • Look up dust: clay, earth, mud, dust, earth, ground
  • Silver cord = spinal cord
  • Golden Bowl = the head, or skull
  • Pitcher = heart

45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

  • The first Adam who sin became = A living soul
  • Last Adam became = a life giving spirit

46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

  • Paul telling us: you were with God before you were born of woman, in your own spiritual body.
  • First earth age you were in your own spiritual bodies with God
  • Second earth age is now your natural, which is your flesh body
  • After your flesh body dies, you will be changed into your own spiritually body.

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

  • 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
  • 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
  • 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

  • First earth age = Heavenly
  • Second earth age = Here on earth now
  • Third earth age = We are with God forever
  • Why are we in this earth age?
  • Ezekiel 28: God needs to know, Do you Love Him

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

  • You were born of fleshly body, also you will have heavenly body.
  • Spiritual body, meaning you are no longer in your flesh body.

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

  • Flesh can not enter heaven with a corruption body, means your flesh body.
  • After your fleshly body dies, you will be changed into your own spiritually body.
  • This is why you have to know Christ raised from the dead
  • Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
    27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward
    every man according to his works.
    28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man
    coming in his kingdom.
  • verse 51 - Can you see the word "all" will be changed
  • verse 52 - Can you see the word "last trump"

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

  • Shew = tell
  • Mystery = secret
  • We shall not all sleep.
  • Sleep indicates death of the flesh body, or death as we understand it today. So what happens to those that do not sleep or die?
  • Who are they?
  • Mark 13:30 Christ said, "Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done".
  • If you will read prior to this verse, you will understand that He is addressing His elect, those that have ears to hears and understanding the Father's plan, those that will be delivered before the synagogue to witness for His sake in the last days. Verses 52-54 give us further information on this change and also specify a time.
  • All Flesh bodies will die.
  • Incorruptible body = Your Spiritual Body
  • 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
    9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
    10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
  • 1 Corinthians15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
  • Fallen asleep = Death of the flesh

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.

  • Paul is telling us this is the beginning of the millennium
  • Because of the LAST trumpet
  • Note the word ''DEAD'', it says All dead shall be raised.
  • All are raised to an incorruptible body, means a body that would not decay, shrivel, wither or age, but they keep this mortal soul, meaning liable to die.
  • Corruptible body means, the flesh body you were born with.
  • Incorruptible body means, your heavenly spiritual body, After your fleshly body dies.
  • In Revelation 20 tells us, the unbeliever will keep their mortal soul, until after the millennium and they will be judged again after the millennium.
  • Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
  • The last trump is the seventh trump of Revelation 11, or the time of  the great day of the Lord. Revelation 7:14  When Christ return he will gather His elect of earlier ages and with those that have washed their roles in the blood of the lamb. Moses, Joshua, Abraham the prophets and others all fall in this category. 
  • The 7000 shall be resurrected at the last trump having proved their loyalty by their deliverance and witness before synagogues, and they shall gather the 144,000 of this generation that shall not pass away.
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3 At this time those who, in their ignorance have accepted the false Christ that shall return prior to the return of Christ, shall be "raised". We are not given details concerning this change, which we will arbitrarily term the "new body" as opposed to the "flesh body". Verse 53-54 states that this new body is incorruptible; that is to say, is not subject to withering or pain or disease.
  • 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
    9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
  • One thousands years means the millennium, Revelation 20 tells us what happens in the  millennium.
  • Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
  • 2 Peter 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
  • Psalms 97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

  • You have two bodies = Corruptible and incorruptible
  • Flesh body and Spiritual body
  • Look up: Corruptible = decayed, perishable
  • All flesh are born with Corruptible body 
  • Look up: incorruptible: = undecaying (in essence or continuance)
  • Incorruptible Body = Your Spiritual body = After your fleshly body dies, you will be raised and changed into your own spiritually body.
  • Moral and Immortal = Meaning your soul only
  • Look up: mortal = liable to die
  • All flesh are born with moral soul = liable to die
  • As long as you have your mortal soul you are liable to die
  • After the fleshly body dies, the unbelievers will keep their mortal soul, until after the millennium. They are on the left side of the gulf in heaven.
  • Look up: Immortal  = deathlessness: immortality
  • After your fleshly body dies, the believers are resurrected into their Immortality (deathlessness) soul alive with Christ. They are on the right side of the gulf in heaven.
  • Ezekiel 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.

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.

  • Understanding the terminology here. In this day we are born with corruptible body, that is to say,  our fleshly body is subject to pain, sickness and ageing.
  • In that day it shall not be, but it says "and" meaning in addition, this mortal body we our born with, meaning liable to die must yet put on immortality soul, this pertains to the soul.
  • These verses stipulate these that are "raised" must also put on immortality.
  • In other words, at the last trump or the beginning of the millennium, all will be changed into their own spiritually body.
  •  The one thousand years of eternal life will only come with salvation through Christ, or with acceptance of the Father and the Son after their testing.
  • Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
  • It is the Father's purpose to give them the opportunity in the millennium to take on immortality.
  • It is during the millennium age that all peoples shall be taught by the elect under Christ , while Satan will be locked in the pit and without influence.
  • God's elect attain eternal life of resurrection when they have finished their witness before councils and synagogues, this is our destiny before Christ returns.
  • The rest that are deceived are changed into their own spiritual body for the thousand year period of teaching.
  • They will have their opportunity for resurrection or immortality after their testing which is at the time of the short season Satan is loosed.
  • After they have been taught fully at the end of the millennium.
  • Every man in his on order, as stated in verse 23.
  • Moral and Immortal = Meaning your soul only
  • Mortal (liable to die) Soul  = All flesh are born with moral soul, which means liable to die
  • As long as you have your mortal soul you are liable to die.
  • Believers are resurrected to Immortality (deathlessness) soul, alive with Christ
  • All are judged according to their works.
  • The believers are Alive means they are on the right side of the gulf in heaven with the Lord.
God's Elect, The 7000 shall be "resurrected" at the last trump, that is, with an immortal or eternal soul.
