Jesus is Both God and Man

Jesus will make your physical body conform with his glorified body.

Philippians 3:21

Recently, a parishioner posed this question to me. Will you have a physical body in heaven? I believe that our bodies will be whole and shining with God’s glory in heaven. I wasn’t quite ready to give him my response and this gave me a perfect opportunity to “talk to Jesus” through scripture. We know that Jesus is the firstborn among the brethren- conquering the grave and is the only One who has both a spirit and physical body.

In the May 5, 2011 edition of the Christian Doctrine, I quote, “Our old bodies, the ones we die in, are corrupt so cannot enter Heaven. So, when we are resurrected by Christ, we will have new bodies, pure and undefiled. In both cases, mortal and spiritual, the ‘body’ is the same thing and has the same meaning. That is, an actual presence. A body has position, mass and image. So it will be in Heaven!” Our bodies in heaven will be touchable, visible, recognizable and whole.

Christ arose physically, and for this reason so will we. Our new bodies will be like Jesus’ new body. Christ will know us individually in Heaven, and so we will know others in love to enjoy the amazing glory of God’s heavenly home.

All glory and honor to God!
