1 Corinthians 15:52 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible: and we shall be changed."
As the Day of the Lord approaches, this prophecy, too, must be fulfilled.
What does this mean?
Those children you may or may not have thought were your kids like your neighbors' kids are more than likely resurrected saints of God's choosing, part of the General Resurrection of the Dead.
As Gomer Pyle would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise."
