1 Corinthians 15:54 – by John Accomando

1 Corinthians 15:54- “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.”

Pretribbers don’t even know who Paul was quoting:

Isaiah 25:8- “He will SWALLOW UP DEATH IN VICTORY; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”

When does Isaiah describe this occurring? After the “heavenly signs”:

Isaiah 13:10- “For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.”

Isaiah 24:23- “Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.”

When does the Lord say the heavenly signs occur? “After the tribulation of those days”:

Matthew 24:29- “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”

And when does the “day of the Lord” occur? After the heavenly signs:

Acts 2:20- “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:”

So Paul inextricably linked the rapture/resurrection, and start of the DOTL to the Lord’s post-trib coming.
