1 Corinthians 15:1-11 - Do you feel lucky?

Please, browse the many free commentaries available on

I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which you in turn received, in which also you stand, through which also you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you--unless you have come to believe in vain.

For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them--though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we proclaim and so you have come to believe.


This is the Epistle selection to be read aloud on the fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C, according to the lectionary for the Episcopal Church. It will follow a reading from Isaiah, where he had a vision and saw seraphim above the throne of Israel [not Yahweh's throne in heaven - there is no such throne], to which he wrote: “each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew.” That will be followed by a singing of Psalm 138, where David wrote, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you keep me safe; you stretch forth your hand against the fury of my enemies; your right hand shall save me.” All will accompany a reading from Luke’s Gospel, where Jesus told Simon-Peter, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.”

I wrote about this reading less than a year ago. Those observations can be read by clicking on this link here. I wrote about this as it was then presented as a reading for Easter Sunday, in the Year B (scheduled April 4, 2021). Today [after the Epiphany] and then are the only two times this reading will be read aloud in Episcopal churches. Since I wrote deeply about this reading less than a year ago, I will not repeat that depth here now. Instead, I will assess these words from an after the Epiphany perspective on ministry.

As an after the Epiphany reading, it is important to see this as a time of internship, after one knowns one’s soul has married Yahweh and given birth to His Son Jesus – the gift of Christmas, confirmed on the Epiphany. The “Epiphany” reflects a personal experience, when one knows that one has been forever, divinely changed. The excitement of that new “’Christmas gift’ is one wants to go out and give it a try. This becomes a time that is symbolic of Jesus sending his still ‘in-training’ disciples out into temporary ministry … ‘to get their feet wet.’ This is how one should see how Christmas is the birthdate of John the Baptist, with Jesus born on the eve of Pentecost [six months later]. Thus, the ‘trial period’ is when one’s soul has been saved and then goes into ministry as the precursor of Jesus [as John first], who then comes later, when one’s soul graduates from ‘disciple school’ and enters into a lifetime of ministry as Jesus reborn.

In this ministry, it should be realized that all of the ministers who are Spiritually reborn as Jesus will include both males and females, just as there were male and female followers of Jesus of Nazareth. This ministry is not about a physical change having occurred. A physical change in human beings can be when puberty hits, and the neuter child matures and becomes either an adult male or adult female. A spiritual transformation is an outpouring of unseen Spirit, with no observable changes in the physical body [no sudden hair growth in previously smooth places]. A spiritual possession by Yahweh is absolutely and completely soul related; and, there are absolutely no souls that have sex organs.

Only physical males and females have need to procreate. Yahweh's plan of Creation was so worldly creatures could multiply and populate the earth. The souls giving life to worldly creatures is like adding electricity to a pre-programmed machine. The machine does what the machine is built to do. The machine does not act because the electricity is leaned towards masculinity or leaned towards femininity. Electricity, like Yahweh, is an outflow of life; so, a soul is like electricity ... an extension of Yahweh to make dead machines come to life.

Angels [saved souls] released from their bodies of flesh do not reproduce and cannot reproduce. All that is spiritual is of masculine essence – it penetrates the material realm. All that is physical is of feminine essence – it receives the spiritual realm. The electricity is masculine and the machine is feminine. Thus Yahweh breathes in [He penetrates] the spirit of life [a neuter gender soul] into a body of flesh [the receptor that is dead without life placed into it]. As neuter gender souls in feminine bodies of flesh, they take on the essence of that which is feminine, when a soul is trapped within a body of flesh. In this way, souls in the flesh all [males and females] become the brides of Yahweh and the mothers of Jesus’ soul resurrected in those mommy souls. Until a soul becomes an angel released [the until death should you part thing], the soul in flesh remains feminine, until it receives a masculine addition to it - a Spiritual masculine addition.

This means that everyone who walks the face of the earth as a human being [a soul animating dead matter] is either male or female physically … for the purpose of reproducing on earth. All souls, however, regardless of their human gender, are going to end up released from their bodies of death as souls that are eternal. Only the bodies of flesh are temporal. This means souls in bodies of flesh are called mortals – they are born to die. They are all born to eventually release the body of flesh back to the earth.

A soul released that has not married Yahweh and given rebirth to His Son is called a failure. It was neuter soul placed in feminine essence, for the purpose of adding Spirit, to become masculine essence in the realm of death. A soul that fails to achieve this addition of the masculine Spirit has failed Yahweh; therefore, those failed souls do not go to heaven [for long]. All souls released from a body of death will enter the outer realm of the spiritual for Judgment. When found a failure, that soul will then be re-placed back into a new body of dead flesh [the one cell variety]. This is reincarnation.

Over great periods of linear time [only existent in the material realm] an eternal soul most likely will be female in reincarnation and then at other reincarnations be male. Depending on how many failed lives that soul has lived, over great epochs of linear time, one soul can be female many times, as well as male many times. A soul that has struggled with releasing the influence a body of flesh has over that soul can become confused and think its sexual orientation of its last life [or past lives when the same human gender for many lives], this is a test of Yahweh placed on those souls, for them to find the way to resist all sexual influences and finally receive the Spirit. With the Spirit the soul is then capable of rejecting influences to sin and earth eternal life with Yahweh.

The soul is always neuter. Only the flesh has sex organs. If a soul has been saved from all this repetitive ‘restarts’ it will remain with Yahweh in heaven for eternity. Because Yahweh is the Father, thus the masculine essence of the Spiritual, all souls who abide with the Father must be His Son. If all are His Son, where all call Yahweh their Father, then all saved souls are “brothers.” Because there are absolutely zero sex organs in heaven, there are no ‘sisters’ there. The feminine realm is only the material realm, meaning all souls placed into that realm take on the femininity of that material realm. All souls in human flesh - both with male and female sex organs - are 'sisters.' As such, the souls in human flesh are all potential 'brides-to-be' of Yahweh; and, they are all potential 'mothers' of His Son Jesus. Thus, Paul was not writing to the saved souls in temporal bodies of flesh in Corinth [who were undoubtedly both of the male and female varieties] about physical matters. Paul was writing to them only about spiritual matters. Therefore, ALL of the Corinthians to whom Paul wrote were “brothers” in Spirit.

None of the female Christians in Corinth saw their souls as being ignored by his writing that word. Their souls knew they were "brothers" because their souls had given birth to the masculine essence Jesus. Jesus can then be seen as the Savior because he is the much needed addition of masculine Spirit that will transform a neuter soul and grant it eternal salvation.

Now, this is a simple matter to grasp. The confusion comes when the pricks that run all the churches have been elevated into positions of authority, while having absolutely no experience of the Spirit of Yahweh within them. The times when Apostles led churches are long gone. They were all crucified by Rome or burned at the stake or executed in Inquisitions. They have been made as rare as unicorns. Therefore, when none of the leaders of churches are filled with the Spirit and then reborn as Jesus, then none of them will have a clue why Paul wrote “adelphoi” and did not add “adelfés.”

Because they do not know why, they do not explain why [as I have just done]. By not being able to explain why there are no “sisters” being pointed out by Paul, these pricks begin making up Scripture to suit their personal needs [those of unsaved souls in degenerate flesh]. Those ‘needs’ are to keep the cash, checks, and tithes coming into the coffers of the churches [to pay for all the things the pricks love to surround their heathen souls with]; and, they know in these modern times that the menfolk have long given up on religion, only driving their aged wives to the church on Sundays. Thus, to keep the women seeing how they are such an integral part of a thriving religious organization, the pricks pander to the feminine egos. One easy way to do that is by adding a nonexistent “and sisters” to what Paul wrote.

That simple addition diminishes the whole value of what Paul wrote. Those souls in desperate need for a masculine Spirit addition are told nothing about that need. Paul, as a saved soul who wrote to other saved souls, wrote the truth to help those who read his words today. Those to whom Paul wrote [males and females] all knew they were “brothers” spiritually, because human gender did not mean squat. Today, the blind pricks lead the blind seekers to the great pit of death, where another reincarnation awaits them all [at best].

I wrote that less than a year ago; but it bears repeating again. Divine Scripture is only written by souls married to Yahweh, who had given rebirth to His Son Jesus – being Jesuses reborn – so they all wrote the Word of Yahweh. All who think changing one iota of divine Scripture will not condemn their tiny souls to eternal damnation [no more reincarnations to start over again] will be in for a HUGE SURPRISE. This is where remembering what “mortal” means … brothers and sisters.

In the Greek text written by Paul, the single word “adelphoi” is written between comma marks, which sets that one word apart from all the rest in this chapter. That one word was singled out for a divine purpose. That divine purpose is to force those who read this letter to contemplate the meaning of “brothers.” That contemplation has to come from every one reading the letter being of different genders. When Yahweh is saying, “Contemplate why only 'brothers' is written,” only the blind and ignorant would say, “Well, I guess Yahweh forgot to tell Paul to add ‘and sisters.’”

As a newbie minister sent out in internship in this ‘after the Epiphany’ time period, if all you do is go from church to church saying, “Paul did not write “and sisters,’ and here is why,” then let that be how you see the reactions that come back to you. Either people’s hearts will open and welcome what insight you bring, which they had never seen before, so they too can begin to court Yahweh and seek His proposal for divine marriage; or, the people will run you out of the church on a rail, cursing you for having dared to speak for God [when they do that by adding “and sisters”]. Then, one either enjoys the comradery of new fellowship or one knocks the filthy dust off one’s sandals and leaves that unholy place, where rejection permeates all souls in flesh there, allowing their judgment days to be when the truth smacks them across the soul. You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. Each soul decides its own fate … but if someone told them Yahweh sent them with an important message to be heeded, and that message was not heeded. Well, they made their reincarnation bed, so let them lie in it.

With that, I leave you to read what I wrote in-depth about this reading selection from Paul last Easter Sunday. If that is not enough, then try this: Talk to me about what it is you seek. Being silent will haunt you when it is time to lay your bag of dirt in the ground and stand naked [and sexless] before the throne of Judgment. Silence gives your soul a thirty-three percent chance of losing everything, forever. In the words of Dirty Harry, “You have to ask yourself, ‘Do I feel lucky?’”

Okay, let me add a little more to this.

When Paul wrote that "Christ died" ["Christos apethanen"], the translation of "died" is misleading. The word "apothnéskó" means, "the separation that goes with the "dying off (away from)." This means the "Anointment" of Jesus by Yahweh was "separated when the body of Jesus returned to death, when the soul of Jesus went away from" that body. To read Paul as saying, "Hey guys, my man 'Christ' - us cool religious dudes can call Jesus 'Christ'" is wrong. Jesus was a soul in a body of flesh, whose soul was "Anointed" by Yahweh. That soul is always "Anointed," thus always a "Christ" - The Christ. So, when that soul of Jesus is resurrected within one of those neuter souls in bodies of flesh - the addition of the masculine Spirit - Jesus lives again and the Christ is in whatever body of flesh a saved soul occupies.

That is when Paul began a series of statements that say Jesus "appeared" ["ōphthē"]. That word is a form of "horaó " [3rd person singular - Aorist Indicative Passive], which means "he was seen, perceived, attended to," with the deeper meaning relative to this [HELPS Word-studies]: "often with metaphorical meaning: "to see with the mind" (i.e. spiritually see), i.e. perceive (with inward spiritual perception)." This means the soul of Jesus - as The Christ - became the inward spiritual perception [the masculine addition of Spirit]: in Cephas [Simon-Peter]; in the twelve; in "more than five hundred brothers at once;" then in James; and, then all the apostles [which is in addition to all listed prior]. After all those souls, Paul then wrote, "he became my inward spiritual perception" ["he appeared to me"].

This is not Paul talking about some ghostly form of Jesus, or some spirit that had physical form of some kind being seen by those who were the first true Christians - all having been reborn as Jesus, all having been Anointed by Yahweh as His Son resurrected - so ALL had that masculine Spirit added to their souls. When Paul said his soul was "least of all," well by golly gee, that is why he changed his name from Saul to Paul [a word meaning Small].

Everyone today is smaller than Paul, if one's soul is led around by a brain that thinks like the pricks hired by religious organizations, paid off with the money you small people give them, so they can keep your souls smaller than Paul. What Paul was writing to the true Christians he met in Corinth was more for us today, by telling them then [in a letter], "Always remember when Jesus was first reborn into your souls," That is a Christmas to always remember; and, to receive this reminder in writing is the Epiphany of knowing one soul reborn as Jesus is not the only soul that has his masculine Spirit added. It is the realization that one's soul has been saved that sends it out in the world with that Good News.
