“Hey, let me tell you a secret.” Have you ever heard words like that? How do you react when someone offers to tell you a secret? Does it raise your interest? Do you lean in close, anxious to hear? What is it about secrets that make them so interesting? Is it because something hidden is surely worth discovering?
Or consider mysteries. Do you like to read mystery novels? Do you enjoy films where the main character has to solve problems and discover the truth? Would you find hunting for and discovering buried treasure exciting?
If you like mysteries, listen to 1 Corinthians 15:51-55, ‘Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we 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. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory?”’ (NIV)
These verses give us a glimpse of the return of Jesus. Christians alive at that time will be changed, receiving a resurrection body. The death that entered the world through Adam’s sin will be gulped down, gobbled up — swallowed in victory!
