    He was never talking about dead people being raises he was talking about the seed that dies.remeber I die daily. Your not quickened except you die. Dead to sin. Dead Do u understand it is a mystery .
  • Linda
    Its a Lot to digest, then I thought after I thought that, that it makes sense because we are being fed the Word of God when we read the Word. What do you think? Anyone? This Chapter says so much. Paul had a conversion to Jesus like many have not experienced as far as we know. I love that we shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of and eye. I am so thankful for Jesus. Thank the Lord!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Note the mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
  • A disciple
    "But why were some too dull to make sure they had Oil for their Lamps?" Its not merely wearing the decorations and ornaments of a Christian costume that will either enable us to endure to the end, or be eventually welcomed into the Wedding Feast of the Lamb; but the intelligence to rightly use what has been provided us, and the holy diligence to REALLY MAKE SURE WE'RE READY FOR HIS COMING!
  • A disciple
    "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." The greatness and generosity of God is more than any of us will ever understand. As it says in the Psalms, His understanding is infinite i.e. There is no number! Yet we must make sure our calling and election is in the same Spirit as His holiness and love of righteousness and truth that cannot abide a character unfit for His presence and fellowship. He has made every possible provision for our salvation and safe arrival home to Himself after our time here. So what then was the difference between the wise and the foolish virgins? They all were called, and all had the Wedding Garments and Lamps! But why were some too dull to make sure they had Oil for their Lamps? Why sit there waiting like an idiot with no oil for your Lamp? Do you just want to carry a useless lantern, while your hands could be freed up to carry other things? Better make sure how important this Wedding, and the Bridegroom really is to you or don't waste your time!
