First:  Notice the word "WE" Plus "ALL" in verse 51.
            This does not refer to EVERYONE ALIVE, but
            to the SAVED.   Jesus died ONCE for ALL.
            John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He
            gave His ONLY begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER
               BELIEVETH in HIM" (not in self, or in our OWN righteous-
                   ness, which is as filthy rags, but in HIS righteousness).
           "might NOT PERISH, but have
             EVERLASTING Life."
          1st Corinthians 15:50-52 (KJV)
                  "Now this I say, BRETHREN, that flesh and blood cannot
the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit
                Behold, I show you a MYSTERY; we shall not ALL sleep,
                but WE SHALL ALL be changed.
                          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."
                          The dead here are NOT ALL dead, But ALL the dead who had ben SAVED.  The WE
                          here are NOT all the living, but ALL those who have TRUSTED Jesus Christ for
                          their salvation.  The changed are changed from the flesh & blood that canNOT
                          inherit the kingdom of God to the RAPTURED.

                          1 Thess 5:4, 5, 9  "For ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should over-
                          take you as a thief.  Ye are ALL the children of light, and the children of the day:
                          WE are NOT of the night, nor of the darkness......For God has NOT APPOINTED
                           US to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our LORD JESUS CHRIST."
