1 Corinthians 15:49 “And just as we have born the earthly likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.”

The Scene: The great transformation that will take place on that great day at the last trumpet when glorified saints will rise from the dead and be changed. We cannot enter heaven with our mortal bodies.

1Corinthians 15:50 ” I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.”

Having kept the faith, God’s children then can receive rewards– gain eternal life. We must have lived on this earth, praising God and believing in His resurrected Son, Jesus the Christ of Nazareth. Only then can we spend eternity in heaven.

1Corinthians 15:51 “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but will all be changed–in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”

We must follow the pattern set before us–Jesus came to earth, He lived, suffered, died and was resurrected. If we are faithful to God’s calling on our lives, then at the end of our earthly lives, our spirits then will go into the presence of God  for eternity.
