    To Greg: I like your comment; Gal.2:21 is another verse to go with it.
  • Greg
    It is good to know that God provided a way to heaven through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus would not lie and would not come to earth just to be labeled a good person, prophet, or miracle worker. He came to end spiritual death for all those that would rely on His blood sacrifice for their salvation. Good works is not the answer if so than his blood is powerless. Works are corruptible not His blood
  • Craig

    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?
