I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 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?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
(1 Corinthians 15:50-58)
Are you a part of the Living Dead . . . or one of the Dead Men Walking? While it is true that we all must die, as Paul reiterates above, we all must face God on that day.
Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment . . . (Hebrews 9:27)
However, those who confess their sin and trust Jesus as Savior and Lord will not face the second death of eternity in hell . . . separated from God forever!(Revelation 20:6)Those who do not make the decision to follow after Christ are simply dead men walking . . . doomed for eternity in hell!
It is a simple choice on this day of celebrating gouls, witches, skeletons, and devils. Living or dead . . . who you 'gonna be? It's a choice!(Romans 10:9-10).
I choose life! (Joshua 24:15) I pray you will too . . .
