Mystery and Victory
Flesh and blood cannot inherit,
Because you have been defiled;
No matter how much you merit,
You have been an unruly child.
Corruption cannot inherit,
Treasure from the Kingdom of God;
For corruption will discredit,
Because of you as being flawed.
For I tell you a mystery,
Not all of us will fall asleep;
As we look back through history,
Many are merely like lost sheep.
For in the twinkling of an eye,
The time you hear the trumpet sound;
The dead will ascend to the sky,
The righteous will be Heaven bound.
The incorruptible will raise,
And clothed with immortality;
Singing to the Lord as we praise,
Going to a new reality.
All of us will experience change,
No longer will we be mortal;
As Jesus Christ will arrange,
To reach the heavenly portal.
This corruptible will be dressed,
As this mortal will then be blessed,
And clothed with immortality.
Death is swallowed in victory,
But where is the victory sting;
For it is still a mystery,
Until we hear the angels sing.
For now, the sting of death is sin,
The power of sin is the Law;
Because when corrupted within,
And the pain will become a flaw.
But thanks, be unto our God,
Gives victory through our Lord;
Sends His Spirit to cleanse where flawed,
Changing to be in one accord.
So be steadfast, immovable,
Always excelling in His deeds;
God will find you approvable,
And He will cater to your needs.
