First Fruits

The fifteenth chapter of First Corinthians is like a
symphony, a mystery story, where all the pieces are
laid out in order before the climax of symbols, drums,
trumpets. The beginning is the Gospel, then comes
the essential resurrection of our Lord. Now as the
music plays, another layer is added.

'Christ is the first fruits of resurrection...'
     First fruits? You mean there's more to come?

'For as by a man came death, 
by a man has come also 
the resurrection of the dead'
Drums, Symbols, Trumpets, please

'For as in Adam all die,
so also in Christ
shall all be made alive.'

Paul goes on to clarify

'But each in his own order. 
Christ the first fruits,
Then at his coming those who belong to Christ.

Reader, if you are a believer, resurrection is in
your future!!!!!

I found the most beautiful rendition of
Handel's Messiah on You Tube. Let it play in the
background and be blessed.
