1 Corinthians 15:49-54New American Standard Bible (NASB)
49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, [a]we will also bear the image of the heavenly.
The Mystery of Resurrection
50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does [b]the perishable inherit [c]the imperishable.51 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised [d]imperishable, and we will be changed.53 For this [e]perishable must put on [f]the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.54 But when this [g]perishable will have put on [h]the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.
Philippians 3:10-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and [a]the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;11 [b]in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on [c]so that I may lay hold of that [d]for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:20-21New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 For our [a]citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;21 who will transform [b]the body of our humble state into conformity with [c]the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
