    Paul lived a long life for this system of things. But who is ready to give it up? Here we are , old, maybe sick, certainly not what we use to be when we were young. Is this the way it is? Absolutely not! When man was created, death was only if God’s law was broken. It was and our forefather Adam cursed us all. But our loving Father has put the solution in place and Paul will personally benefit. Jesus states at John 5:28&29; that all those in memorial tombs and graves will come out to life again. Then the ransom sacrifice will take on its full application and Paul will never be old, sick nor die. Revelation 21:3&4 tells us that those things will be no more. We can look forward to seeing Paul again, what a wonderful day that will be.
