Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:51


15:51 A mystery - A truth hitherto unknown; and not yet fully known to any of the sons of men. We - Christians. The Apostle considers them all as one, in their succeeding generations. Shall not all die - Suffer a separation of soul and body. But we shall all - Who do not die, be changed - So that this animal body shall become spiritual.

1Co 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery. I disclose to you a secret of which you have had, hitherto, no knowledge. We shall not all sleep. There will be some on the death who shall be alive when Christ comes. But we shall all be changed. The living who meet Christ, as well as the dead who are raised up. All shall be made immortal and incorruptible.

    I sometimes get carried away in the world and before I turned back to God it was easy to labour in a worldly way sinning and not loving my neighbour, we must always strive to labour in the Lord for most worldly labour is vanity where as labour in the Lord is everlasting. Think of the labour of love God did for us when he took up the cross for our sins, fasting for 40 days and nights healing and loving each and everyone of us hallelujah Praise the Lord in Jesus name Amen.
