1 Corinthians 15:37-38 "And that which thou soweth, thou soweth not that body that shall be. But God giveth it a body, as it has pleased Him, and to every seed his own body. 1 Corinthians 15:42." So also is the resurrection of the dead, it is sown in corruption it is raised in incorruption. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." 1 Corinthians 15:50 "Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God."
In the recent past I wrote a Gem stating that some would have a beautiful body after death and some would not. According to the response, many read it, but some were confused. The Bible uses many symbols to reflect differences and comparisons. That is what I did when I wrote some would appear as a beautiful flower in heaven; while others would appear as a rag weed. I thought it was a good symbol because there is certainly a lot of difference between a beautiful flower and a rag weed.
And now, hoping this will clear the minds of some, let us go deeper into what scripture shows about the bodies God has given us when born into this life. Wisdom dictates that we must depend upon what God has permitted in his word and believe it with a strong faith. But we should be thankful to study what His word does give. Genesis 1: 26-27 "And God said, Let us make man in Our image: after Our likeness. 27 So God created man in His Own image. In the image of God created He him: Male and female created them." This gives a strong belief that God does have a body, and that the bodies of men and women in this life may somewhat resemble the structure of His body.
But it would be in error to think all that only applies to the physical appearance of men. Men are different from any other animal life, and that scripture can also involve their spiritual makeup. We remember it is stated in scripture that God formed man from the dust of the earth and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. God actually gave man a part of Himself when He breathed life into his nostrils to make him a living soul.
It is a positive truth, there is no greater example for life, death, and the bodies we will enjoy in the next life than Jesus. God sent Jesus into this earthly life of flesh and blood to give us a pattern how He wants us to live it. Do we see it? Jesus put the will of God ahead of any earthly pleasure. He always said, "Not My will but Thine be done," when praying to God. Can we do that? Jesus suffered the crucifixion; was dead and in the grave for three days, then He came back in His spiritual body and was recognized by all who knew Him. We will have that kind of body when we are resurrected. You will find this several times in your Bible, but I will give one example; John 20-19 "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst of them." Will there be a resurrection for us? A positive yes. Jesus and several of the Apostles raised the dead and returned them to life.
