We Will Be Changed

John Stange

1 Corinthians 15:50-58

I. Ponder the mystery (v. 50-53)

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 – For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Revelation 1:10 – I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet

II. Celebrate the victory (v. 54-57)

Hebrews 2:14-15 – Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.

III. Serve steadfastly (v. 58)
