When will the dead be raised in Christ?

"Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed - in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed."

Does this mean that the dead will be asleep in the grave many years until the return of Christ? Or is there an instant Resurrection unto eternal life?

1 Corinthians 15:51 - 52

ESV - 51 Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
