Every human being must consider, seriously consider that we are just “clay” formed from this earth.
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).
We only have a “breath of life”; we do not have life: “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).
“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit” (1 Corinthians 15:47–49, 45).
On the Last Day, the Day of Judgment, to live forever, our frame must be changed from “clay” to “light” to become a quickening spririt (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)..
“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light’” (Ephesians 5:14).
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:50-51).
“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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).
