This is what Scripture says: "The first man, Adam, became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
The spiritual does not come first, but the physical and then the spiritual.
The first man was made from the dust of the earth. He came from the earth. The second man came from heaven.
The people on earth are like the man who was made from the dust of the earth. The people in heaven are like the man who came from heaven.
As we have worn the likeness of the man who was made from the dust of the earth, we will also wear the likeness of the man who came from heaven.
Brothers and sisters, this is what I mean: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. What decays cannot inherit what doesn't decay.
I'm telling you a mystery. Not all of us will die, but we will all be changed.
It will happen in an instant, in a split second at the sound of the last trumpet. Indeed, that trumpet will sound, and then the dead will come back to life. They will be changed so that they can live forever.
This body that decays must be changed into a body that cannot decay. This mortal body must be changed into a body that will live forever.
When this body that decays is changed into a body that cannot decay, and this mortal body is changed into a body that will live forever, then the teaching of Scripture will come true: "Death is turned into victory!
Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?"
