Hello Steve,

I have enjoyed your recent blog   JESUS THE CONQUERING KING , as I do all your writings.  
In the article you describe some pretty dramatic events that will unfold at the second coming of Jesus.  In it you wrote,  
 Those still living on the earth may feel a new life force flow up into them from the ground as the Creator restores this planet at his return. Who knows what else may happen that we cannot now imagine.
This caused me to remember the events described in 1 Cor 15:50-53, in which from my understanding and teaching we will all be changed into our eternal spiritual bodies at the last trump and the second coming of Jesus.
Is this how you would read it?
 If so, then this should be a fail safe way to know that the arrival of the antichrist is not the true second coming of Jesus for we will still be in our physical bodies.
1 Cor 15:50-53
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood [human body] cannot inherit the kingdom of God [for it is in the spiritual realm]; neither doth corruption [a decaying flesh body] inherit incorruption [eternal spiritual body].
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep [die], but we shall all be changed,
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 [in spiritual bodies], and we [who were alive and remaining )i.e., did not yet die)] shall be changed  [into spiritual bodies (but without dying first)].
53 For this corruptible [flesh body] must put on incorruption [spiritual body], and this mortal [flesh person] must put on immortality [spirit person, like the angels]. KJV
Keep up the good work.  
God bless


Hello Frank,
Thanks for your positive reaction to my blog about “Jesus the Conquering King.” I agree that I Corinthians 15:50-53 teaches that the saved will be transformed from beings with physical bodies to ones with spirit bodies at the sound of the trumpet blast that will announce the return of Jesus Christ. Those who are saved can know that the real return of Jesus Christ has not returned if they are not changed into spirit beings. It is possible (even likely) that the beast and antichrist power will try to fake the return of Christ in order to “credential” themselves in the eyes of a deceived world, but another sign of the genuine return of Christ is that the top political/religious leaders of the world will be slain during that event (Revelation 19:19-20). A phony or “staged” return of Christ would enhance and empower the political/religious leaders of the world.
