On June 2, 2024, Sunday morning, the most exciting life-giving call of God came in the blink of an eye and quietly flowed into my heart, and I believe in the hearts of many prepared people of God perhaps around the world.

In a moment of time, indescribable life flooded my spirit, and glory consumed my heart and soul. The deepest calling to the highest reality of heavenly love life has completely consumed me. It was apparent that my life was changed forever, and it was all wonderfully exciting, filled with joy, and an overwhelming sense of awe of ultimate respect in perfect love.

At the same time this was happening Sunday morning, our Pastor talked about that which Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:12-13, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but “then” face to face: now I know in part; but “then” shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Darian pointed out that this referred to progressive revelation.

The “then” in verse 12 refers to the full maturity of love. The glass is clearing up in these latter days as love is consuming our hearts and lives.

This call of love today involves a new level of revelation.

Revelation beyond all that God had opened to me before began to just be there. It was like I was there with Paul as he spoke 1 Corinthians 15:46-57. What he was truly saying from where he was in time, and what it really meant to the believers then and now was clear. Some of the things Paul was saying were seen in a new light of revelation of Spirit life and death.

We know there is natural life and death, and there is spiritual life and death.

Natural death is separation from this life of earthly existence. Natural life is connected to and present in this earthly existence.


Spiritual death is separation from God and His heavenly existence. Spiritual life is fully connected to God and His heavenly existence.

God is revealing that the following verses speak clearly to the spiritual life and the natural life. Generally, most believers have only seen these as applicable to the earthly natural life.

Since the fall of Adam, a natural man without redemption is spiritually dead while living a fallen natural earthly life separated from God.

A redeemed person who chooses not to fully walk in the Spirit of love in Christ is walking in degrees of separation from God and, subsequently, living in degrees of death in this life. Without falling in love with God, he or she will only enter the fullness of heavenly life after natural death.

I thank God for the heavenly Spirit life after natural death. However, I praise God for the heavenly Spirit life that is ours now after the death of our old fallen life while still in this world today.


1 Corinthians 15:51: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 52 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.”

Paul led up to this mystery by discussing the changes from natural to spiritual resurrection and God’s progressions in creation. Such as going from death to life or from seed to fruit or from natural life and death to Spiritual-heavenly life and so on.

1 Corinthians 15:44-50: “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.

48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”

There is a natural body and a spiritual body. There is an earthy man and a heavenly man. We have been the earthy man and shall be the spiritual. THE BIG QUESTION THAT PAUL IS ANSWERING IS WHEN AND HOW THIS REALLY COMES ABOUT.

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 KJV, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.”


God is revealing the last great trumpet of love that calls for the risen life to be released into those in love with God. The call is to enter into and become the resurrection life of Christ in this life now. This is the rising into heavenly life where there is no more death remaining in our life now

It is the reality of this mortality putting on immortality, it is being changed in the blink of an eye.

“52 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.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

This is the life of VICTORY.

This is the death of death in our natural fallen old self. We are truly crucified with Christ and no longer live. The new life that we do live is the life of Christ as one with Father God. “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20.

This is the going up higher. “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.’ 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1-2.

This is the earthy us as the seed sown dying and becoming heavenly spiritual life, the earthy man becoming the spiritual heavenly man. It is the resurrected life of Christ Jesus that now lives on earth, living in his chosen sons.  

If you are experiencing some of this reality or feeling it as you read now, you may now be being called as a voice of the last trump of the trumpets of God’s reclamation of mankind and this world.

Our past callings and giftings may remain. However, the primary call now is to be raised in the Spirit to heavenly life as mature sons of God living on earth as Christ, who is now releasing His life in and through us.

This may not mean our gifts and activities change. However, it does mean our primary calling is that our lives be changed as God imparts, in the blink of an eye, the last trumpet revelation of this mortal putting on immortality now in this life.                                               

Our old natural life is gone. Our resurrected Spirit lives are one with God, and though we yet have a natural body subject to the elements of this world, we live in our new resurrected Spirit body here on earth and in heaven seated with Christ. Our Spirit body is not confined only to earthly existence. Nor is it confined to our earthly body’s limitations.  

God can send or transport us anywhere in creation to do and be anything that He desires. Things that are impossible for natural fallen mankind or for the partially dead believers are now possible with God and His completed sons.

Jesus said, “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39. “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25. Jesus is talking about losing our natural life and finding our true Spirit life now.

Father God, You are worthy of it all! You deserve all glory!

Your Love Never Fails!

NOTE: (You may want to reread this carefully and pray and meditate on it and the scriptures. The change is a work of God that we cannot perform. However, we must be in a position to receive, which may involve some rocks of past understanding in the soil of our hearts. Ron)
