Greeting
Can any body can tell me the mystery kept secret since the world began world,

In We read in 1 Corinthians 15: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
Changed into What? Please can any one me a honest answer.

In Jeremiah 33:2-3 "Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it (the Lord is His name):
'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'
Romans 16:24-27  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began
but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith--
to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 4: 1 Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
1 Corinthians 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 15:50-51  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--

The secret, mystery was Jesus Christ.....

The change: The born again Christian will be given a spiritual body, a body like Christ', fit for Heaven.... amen !!

The bodies of the saints, when they rise again, will be changed. They will be then glorious and spiritual bodies, fitted to the heavenly world and state, where they are ever afterwards to dwell.
The human body in its present form, and with its wants and weaknesses, cannot enter or enjoy the kingdom of God. Then let us not sow to the flesh, of which we can only reap corruption. And the body follows the state of the soul. He, therefore, who neglects the life of the soul, casts away his present good; he who refuses to live to God, squanders all he has.

The mystery of God's plan is told to us plainly, its just that most people don't believe it.

KJV:
Ephesians 1:9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him

The Amplified version really makes it clear:
Ephesians 1:9 Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of Hispurpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in [a]Him,
10[He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth.

Did you catch that? The mystery of God's plan & purpose:
To unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ.


Mystery revealed! But who believes it?

Also:

Ephesians 3
2 Surely you have heard about the administration of Godís grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to Godís holy apostles and prophets. 6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians as a whole has alot on the topic.

So, Theword, is the bible a little too tricky for you? It is not a cookbook, you know! It is a guide to your life, but it leaves a few things partially unanswered and you have to figure them out for yourself.

Changed into what? No one knows, but you will find out soon enough.

In Psalms 105:5-45 God the Father said he Remember
The change is in the soul. We can change from a natural love soul to a Divine Love soul wherein we are fit to enter the Kingdom of God. When Divine Love enters the soul, it slowly eradicates all sins of the past and then it slowly works on the tendancies to sin so that once we are Divine, we will no longer be able to sin or error. We won't want to because we will want to do things thet way that God does things. With Love. Just as Jesus did.

It talks about rapture. The dead believers will be changed and given a new body, and those believers who are living will also be given a new body which will be resurrected and meet the Lord in the air. No one will be raptured in their earthly (perishable) bodies.

A new body, or the same old one transformed and glorified?

Remember, we are told we will be like Jesus and the body He took to heaven still had nail holes in the hands and feet.

A spirit body, like Jesus. Of course it can look like our present body glorified.

1 Jn 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

and

Phil 3:21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

Jesus resurrected body could be felt, it was physical with flesh and bones, and He could eat. We also shall be sharing a meal at the marriage supper of the Lamb, so we also will have physical touchable bodies that have similar senses that we have now. We will see, hear, taste, touch, only I am sure on a much magnified scale.

Lu 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

At the last trumpet sound when Christ returns we shall all be given immortal bodies, just like Jesus.

Php 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
