"The Complexity of Mankind"

“The Complexity of Mankind”


What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?        Psalm 8:4

The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.  If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.                                               1 Corinthians 15:42-44


When people are conceived in their mother’s womb they have TWO parts, NATURAL and SPIRITUAL.  The part that is formed first is the NATURAL part.  Verse forty-six says. “The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.”  The NATURAL body is PERISHABLE, but the SPIRITUAL body is IMPERSHABLE. 


When the child is conceived in the womb, it is conceived with a SINFUL NATURE, it is conceived with WEAKNESS, and is TEMPORAL, and IMPERFECT.  So God provided the SPIRITUAL part of a human being, in order for them to be changed from PERISHABLE to IMPERISHABLE, because; “Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.”  (V 50)  


This is where the SPIRITUAL part comes in.  During the resurrection of the dead, those who belong to Jesus Christ, will have their PERISHABLE NATURAL body changed to IMPERISHABLE, and it will be raised a SPIRITUAL BODY that will be raised in GLORY and POWER.  Those who are ALIVE, when Christ comes to get His TRUE CHILDREN, they will be INSTANTLY TRANSFORMED with their NEW SPIRITUAL BODY. 


However, this is NOT the case for those who CONTINUALLY REJECT God’s gift of SALVATION, those who are UNBELIEVERS.  They will be SPIRITUALLY DEAD and will spend their ETERNITY in HELL, the place of ETERNAL torment, torture, heartache agony and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE.   Is this your destiny?  It doesn’t have to be, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and look forward to a NEW SPIRITUAL BODY that will spend an ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
