080314 The Quickening


When you are born again upon the cross

And Jesus now becomes your Lord and King,

The Spirit of the Father moves across,

Transforming mortal flesh that once did cling.

If God should call you home to be with Him

Before the Second Coming of the Lord,

Your earthly shell will fade, but don’t be grim,

The body you once had will be restored.

You are a new creation when you’re saved,

And though your worldly robe still falls apart,

When Jesus shall return what once enslaved

Will be a perfect temple at restart.

So God, who raised up Jesus from the dead,

Will raise you up as well as He has said.


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.

1 Corinthians 15:52 KJV
