No Atoms Or Molecules Required - Poem by Royston Allen

These former things will surely pass away
for they are subject to death and decay.
Old atoms and molecules will not do
and this old creation must be made new.

Then these bodies of flesh God shall replace
for they're limited by earth's time and space.
Sorrow and suffering no more shall be
and heavens’ glory’s been reserved for me.

This mortal has gained immortality
and there forever with Jesus shall be.
Death has been swallowed up in victory
and Jesus Christ is reigning in glory.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Thoughts whilst attending the funeral of a friend
when 1 Corinthians 15: 50-58 was read.

1 Corinthians 15: 50-58
I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: 'Death has been swallowed up in victory.'

'Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting? '

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
