Resurrection and Transformation

An extraordinary event will occur at the Lord's coming. By the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, God will raise believers who have died. Believers who are alive will be "caught up" in the clouds. "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel's call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians ,17).

Without going through death, believers who are alive will transform into spiritual bodies. "We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed" (1 Corinthians ,52).

"Our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body" (Philippians ,21). Just as the Lord Jesus was raised to life in a spiritual body, believers will also be clothed with a spiritual body--glorious, powerful, and immortal.
