PRESSING INTO THE KINGDOM (Continued)
Scripture Reading I Corinthians 15:51-52
15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be
15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet
shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
What a glorious mystery it is when the Holy Spirit unveils it to the obedient heart! Let us examine separately the terms “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump.” The word moment is the same as the word atom. An atom is the smallest particle. It represents that which is irreducible. When we recognize that apart from Christ we are sinners and acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior, great spiritual laws get into motion. The wages of sin is death. You cannot go any lower than death. That moment we receive Christ with pure hearts, in the twinkling of an eye, we are translated into the kingdom of God’s Son. Keep in mind that higher laws, which are unexplainable to the natural man are set in motion through God’s power when we receive His Son. Jesus Christ is the only way back to Father.
Finally, by receiving Jesus as Lord, the last trump becomes audible in the spirit. According to the Revelation, the seventh trumpet announced the kingdoms of this earth have become the kingdoms of our LORD and His Christ. By proclaiming Jesus as Lord, we are letting the world know we have heard the last trump.
