I Corinthians Chp 15:45-58 Chp. 16

I Corinthians Chp. 15 and 16

Chp. 15

Vs. 45-58

Vs. 45 The first Adam in the Garden of Eden was made a living soul or a living person with a soul. The second “Adam“---Jesus Christ was a life giving spirit.

 

Vs. 46 The first Adam was physical, natural not spiritual, the “second Adam” was spiritual.

Vs. 47 The first man was of the earth, the second man was of heaven.

Vs. 49 We have the image of the earthy through Adam, we have the image of the spiritual through Jesus.

Vs. 50 Flesh and blood can not receive heaven the kingdom of God. It is corrupt or made dirty or rotten---it has been cursed because of sin and will die.

Vs. 51 We will be changed. We will not all “sleep” or die.

Vs. 52 In a blink, in a twinkling of an eye, when the trumpet of God sounds the dead will be raised up and be given a new clean whole eternal body. We will be changed.

Vs. 53 This earthly body must be changed to enter heaven, we must have and will have a new eternal body that will never die.

Vs. 54. When this change of our body happens then it will be said, “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

Vs. 55. “O, death, where is your sting? O, grave, where is your victory?”

Vs. 56. Death was the result of sin.

Vs. 57 Victory over death is because of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Vs. 58 Paul encourages the people. He tells them to be firm and steady in their faith. To be always doing the work of the Lord. Your work is not empty or for nothing it will have a reward. 

I Corinthians Chp. 16

Chp. 16: Vs.1-24

 

Vs. 1 , 2 Paul is encouraging the people to bring their offering for the believers in Jerusalem. He wants them to have it all brought in before he comes to their church.

Vs. 3-8 Paul explains about his coming. Vs. 9 Paul said that their was a open door of opportunity to tell the gospel, but there were also many “adversaries” or those who were against him and made trouble.

This is true today for many places. There are those who are against the gospel being preached. Yet, that did not stop Paul. He preached anyway.

The rest of the chp. is greetings encouragement and explanation.
