After that, I was watching episodes of a super hero TV show “The Tick”. During one of the pre-commercials, I heard an advertisement about an arthritis medicine. The word “bones” was mentioned. That got my attention!
In one of the episodes of the Tick, he had to learn that death existed and everything dies. Another humorous episode showed the death of a super hero named “The Immortal”.
As I thought about these things and the funny thing that God has spoken to me, I understood.
This verse of scripture pulls all these clues together and solves the God-puzzle.
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.”
When we believe in Jesus and receive him as our Lord and Savior, we become super people that have the victory over death. God invented our bones in His heavenly workshop and he will put our bones back together in resurrection. The bugs and ticks of death that will feed on our decaying mortal bodies cannot stop our resurrection from the dead. When Jesus Christ returns at the resurrection of the dead, we will be changed into immortal, sons and daughters of God.
Through Jesus’ redemptive work, God played a joke on death. That’s funny!
