How Would You Like a New Body?

drawing of body running.Christianity is unique. Why? It teaches that we will receive immortal bodies. Instead of just being spirits, we’ll have tangible bodies to live in and they won’t break down once the warranty expires.

People who believe in reincarnation will doubtless disagree with what I wrote here. Even so, the bodies they claim to receive in their next lives are mortal. Only the Bible contains the awesome truth that everybody will be resurrected on the last day, meaning the day when God judges all people whoever lived.

So what will we look like then? I don’t know and neither do the scriptures indicate what we will be like. Here’s what they do tell us.

We will have physicality. In Job’s book, he said that though worms consume his body, yet in his flesh shall he see God. Likewise, the letters written by the Apostle Paul are filled with statements about us being raised up in immortal bodies.

Our new bodies will also be free from the effects of sin. At present, we have a sin virus eating away at our bodies and souls. When we meet Christ in the air, we’ll be instantly renewed. We’ll live in a new heaven and earth, free from corruption in all it’s corrosive forms.

Marriage won’t matter then either. Christ told a group of liberal Jewish leaders that we won’t marry or be given in marriage but will be like the angels in heaven. Like Hank Hanegraaff pointed out, earth is the breeding colony but heaven is the homeland.

Great Bible scholars like Hank helped me immensely over the years. Read how they straightened me out in my How I Was Razed memoir. You’re welcome to contact me regarding this amazing testimony.
