Yesterday we looked at differing bodies of things
in this dimension, but today we will get a glimpse
into another dimension.

Paul has just gone through the differing bodies in
this world and now he makes an odd statement:

So also is the resurrection of the dead.

It is sown a perishable body
      It is raised an imperishable body
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.

I am not making this stuff up! He continues to
lay out his arguments for resurrection:

The first man Adam became a living soul.
The last Adam became a life giving spirit...
The first man is from the earth, earthy
The second Man is from heaven.
The organ swells to its most glorious sound:

... just as we have born the image of the earthy,
    we shall also bear the image of the heavenly!

Well, reader, is not this the most glorious
message for this Christmas Season? I just
read an article that said in the month of
September a Christian died every five
minutes from violence erupting because of

Thank God for resurrection!
