The Image of the Heavenly | Lesson 143

Jan 7, 2024    Josh Strelecki

In this sermon Josh Strelecki, Pastor-Teacher continues to develop Paul's answers to the questions - how are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? In this passage, Paul details that there is a natural body and a spiritual body and that which was first is natural and the spiritual afterward. The natural body generated by Christ from the dust of the earth is earthy and due to sin is sown in corruption, dishonor, and is weak; yet, the spiritual body is generated from the power Christ has to subdue all things unto Himself by His resurrection. This spiritual body bears the image of the heavenly - the Lord from heaven and is raised in incorruption, glory, and power. Paul then provides us a great and precious promise as we have borne the image of the earthy so we will bear the image of the heavenly, the second, and the last because of the second man and last Adam - Jesus Christ Who is the resurrection and life.
