Resurrection (3)!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Out present bodies are “in corruption”. From within and from forces without that tend to destroy our bodies. There is bacterial organisms that infect our lungs, bloodstream etc. The human body cannot resist their power. Not even the science of medicine can counteract the corrupting influences on the body. It cannot fight death. For “in Corruption” we were born. It continues through our lives and in dying we die. Dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return. It is sown in corruption. In corruption we are buried. But, it is raised “in incorruption”. The body of the resurrection is subject to these powers of corruption no more. It is immune. It has the victory. Incorruptible it is. Nor is there in the kingdom of God any power of corruption from without. The “inheritance that is preserved for us is incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away” (1Peter 1:4). There will be no disease germs in the eternal kingdom. In the sphere of incorruption, in the which no one will say anymore, “I am sick”, the body will be raised. For it will be made like unto the glorious body of Christ. It is beyond the possibility of corruption. In the resurrection death has no dominion. It can never enter there in any form. Hence, “there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, not crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (Revelation 21:4).
