Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:55


15:55 O death, where is thy sting? - Which once was full of hellish poison. O hades, the receptacle of separate souls, where is thy victory - Thou art now robbed of all thy spoils; all thy captives are set at liberty. Hades literally means the invisible world, and relates to the soul; death, to the body. The Greek words are found in the Septuagint translation of #Hosea 13:14|. #Isaiah 25:8|

    Jim, where does this say in the bible, All who are Christ's when they die their spirits all go to glory until the Resurrection and the dead lifeless body
    rests in the ground without the soul in it and we will be given a new body. We also will be able to recognize one another from the old body.
