I read that as affirming what the Saint Apostle Paul declared in verse 50. I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable .
Not even "the deadin Christ" who shall "rise first"?... and what about where Jesus had said, in John 11:25-26, "though he may die YET SHALL HE LIVE" (because, HE said, "I AM the RESURRECTION" in addition to saying also "I AM the LIFE").
I think I know what you are trying to say... but my point would be with regard to "resurrection" (only those who "die" will experience the "bodily/physical resurrection [to stand again on the earth]"). I could also mention the TWO aspects of 1Cor15:51-54 ("this corruptible" is the saints who've DIED; and "this mortality" is those saints still-living at the time referenced [same as 2Cor5:2-4!])
It sounds as though you are taking the Amillennialist-teachings' position... is that close to being accurate?
