"But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" I Corinthians 15:35
You and I were never intended to die. Death was not a part of God's perfect plan. Being a forever God, He wanted us to have forever fellowship with Him in the forever perfect place He created. If you want a glimpse of God's "plan A" look at the first several chapters of Genesis. Death is God's enemy. He had to conquer it. How did He conquer it? By sending His Son, Jesus to die and then to arise from the dead!
One day He will totally destroy death. The Bible promises that "death and hell will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.
Isn't it good to know that we serve a God Who is not only bigger than life, He is bigger than death! He will restore order and holiness and perfection to His universe!
To get an insight on the resurrection and the "ever after" bodies we will have we can look to Jesus. After His death He resurrected on the third day and for several weeks He appeared to His disciples. Obviously, they recognized Him and yet he appeared in rooms that had locked doors. So, we learn that our forever bodies will be recognizable!
That is good news! It is comforting news!
Your forever body will be as good and perfect as the rest of your forever!
