Lesson 239: When Time Shall Be No More
1 Cor.15:42-44 So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory.
It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
Someday when time runs out, the very last believer will come into the flock of Christ.
Once His work of redemption is complete, Christ will remain human for eternity.
He would have every right to become Spirit again, as He was before the first Christmas.
But Christ will choose to remain a man to be with his bride forever. 1 Cor.15:21-28
He promised, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Deut.31:6; Heb.13:5; Ruth 4:13-14

- to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds,
- and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
- Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful to you and to me.
- Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
