"To DANNY: Regarding WHERE DOES IT SAY ALL?"
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.
3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He
gave His ONLY begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER
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
1st Corinthians 15:50-52 (KJV)
"Now this I say, BRETHREN,
that flesh and blood cannot
kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit
Behold, I show you a MYSTERY; we shall
not ALL sleep,
but WE SHALL ALL
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."
