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.

    "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." After Noah entered the ark and the LORD shut him in; how many were afterwards saved? The morning that Lot went out of Sodom, and the LORD rained fire and burning sulphur from heaven and destroyed all; who remained to after be saved?

Thank you Jesus..

    12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. Now after believing what Jesus did on the cross for my sins and dieng and rising from the dead three days.
