What will our Heavenly [Glorified] Bodies Be Like?

Category: Bible Topics

Terms: Repentance

Repentance goes beyond the desire [feelings] of turning from sin to righteousness.

The Bible word most often translated repentance — means a change of mental and spiritual attitude toward sin. [Detestation of past sins and a resolve to make amends through forgiveness through Jesus Christ {from God} and with the help of the Holy Spirit.]

Our Three Bodies – for those that are SAVED

  • Earthly Human [is current body that we have on Earth] {Flesh/Blood Body}
  • Transitional Spiritual Human [non-eternal pre-glorified body – before Rapture while in Heaven]  {is Spirit Body – able to talk, think, etc – not like the Angels or Jesus yet}
  • Post Spiritual Human [is eternal glorified body – at/after Rapture] {Spirit Body – actual eternal subtance – similar to what Jesus has except we will not be God}

 

Reasoning:

So you don’t get confused if you watch the Discovery Channel or if you listen to experimental scientist who are now talking of Trans-Humans [machine/human mix] and Genetic-Altered Humans.

What is the body of a believer who goes to Heaven before the Rapture/Resurrection? What is the “Transitional Post Human”?

Conclusion:

From "rich man" in pre-Hell parable:  Luke 16:20-25 [ rich man {unsaved}/ Lazarus{saved}]
- both can talk, see, hear, think, feel, remember, understand
- both can walk, move, function physically
- both have substance and essence of some kind
- both are NOT immortal or free of corruption
- believer/saint has divine nature and those is pre-Hell still have the “Worldly” sin nature

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Rapture/Resurrection Event" [receiving incorruption & immortality glorified body]: Luke 20:35-38

- Believer/Saint DO NOT have immortality yet but receives it at the Rapture/Resurrection Event
- Believer/Saint does have divine nature
- Believer/Saint does NOT have the "glorified" body yet but receives it at the Rapture/Resurrection Event

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Saints/Martyrs physically go to/from before God to receive robes of righteousness" Rev 6:9-11
- Saints/Martyrs have movement, understanding, a physical body of some kind, hear, see, think
- Saints/Martyrs exist in substance
- Saints/Martyrs have divine nature, but not immortal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Believers/Saints "in" Paradise [Heaven] after their death: Luke 16:20-25 [ rich man/ Lazarus] and Rev 6:11 [rest a little longer until their other brothers, fellow servants of Jesus, had been martyred on the earth and joined them.]

- aware of believers/saints still suffering on Earth
- enjoy nice environment and surroundings
- move about, hear, see, think, feel, understand, evaluate, speak/sing
- awaiting the Rapture/Resurrection knowingly [wanting it to take place]
- can ask questions and understand answers to/from God and understand where they are, the circumstances of Paradise [Heaven] and those on Earth at least to general/overall condition

Category: Bible Topics

How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

Conclusions: Our resurrected glorified body will be:

  • Of divine nature [Heavenly] rather than the sin nature [Worldly].
  • Spiritual [Heavenly] rather than natural [Earthly].
  • Not flesh and blood [Earthly made]. It will be Heaven made.
  • Of substance that can be touched, felt, and will be solid. It will be able to eat and drink and function [touching and handling items of Earth or anywhere] — [stand, sit, move].
  • Incorruptible and immortal.
  • Individualized and unique. [“given a body as it hath pleased him {God}”]
  • Given Heavenly glory and Heavenly power. [not sickly, will not die, and will not grow old.
  • Changed — [We will no longer be human as we now know it, but will be an eternal spiritual post-human being.]

Living Bible

1 Corinthians 15:35-57
35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be brought back to life again? What kind of bodies will they have?”
36 What a foolish question! You will find the answer in your own garden! When you put a seed into the ground it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it “dies” first.
37 And when the green shoot comes up out of the seed, it is very different from the seed you first planted. For all you put into the ground is a dry little seed of wheat or whatever it is you are planting,
38 then God gives it a beautiful new body—just the kind he wants it to have; a different kind of plant grows from each kind of seed.
39 And just as there are different kinds of seeds and plants, so also there are different kinds of flesh. Humans, animals, fish, and birds are all different.
40 The angels[d] in heaven have bodies far different from ours, and the beauty and the glory of their bodies is different from the beauty and the glory of ours.
41 The sun has one kind of glory while the moon and stars have another kind. And the stars differ from each other in their beauty and brightness.
42 In the same way, our earthly bodies which die and decay are different from the bodies we shall have when we come back to life again, for they will never die.
43 The bodies we have now embarrass us, for they become sick and die; but they will be full of glory when we come back to life again. Yes, they are weak, dying bodies now, but when we live again they will be full of strength.
44 They are just human bodies at death, but when they come back to life they will be superhuman bodies. For just as there are natural, human bodies, there are also supernatural, spiritual bodies.
45 The Scriptures tell us that the first man, Adam, was given a natural, human body[e] but Christ* is more* than that, for he was life-giving Spirit.
46 First, then, we have these human bodies, and later on God gives us spiritual, heavenly bodies.
47 Adam was made from the dust of the earth, but Christ came from heaven above.
48 Every human being has a body just like Adam’s, made of dust, but all who become Christ’s will have the same kind of body as his—a body from heaven.
49 Just as each of us now has a body like Adam’s, so we shall some day have a body like Christ’s.
50 I tell you this, my brothers: an earthly body made of flesh and blood cannot get into God’s Kingdom. These perishable bodies of ours are not the right kind to live forever.
51 But I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret: we shall not all die, but we shall all be given new bodies!
52 It will all happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For there will be a trumpet blast from the sky,[f] and all the Christians who have died will suddenly become alive, with new bodies that will never, never die; and then we who are still alive shall suddenly have new bodies too.
53 For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die, must be transformed into heavenly bodies that cannot perish but will live forever.
54 When this happens, then at last this Scripture will come true—“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
55-56 O death, where then your victory? Where then your sting? For sin—the sting that causes death—will all be gone; and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge.
57 How we thank God for all of this! It is he who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord!

KJV
1 Corinthians 15:35-57
35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew 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 trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 20:26-27
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

John 21:12-14
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

Matthew 26:64
“Yes,” Jesus said, “I am. And in the future you will see me, the Messiah, sitting at the right hand of God and returning on the clouds of heaven.

Acts 7:55
But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily upward into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at God’s right hand.
