At a certain age you stop getting stronger, sleeker and speedier. The moment you’re born, you start dying.
*Basically there are but two body types: earthly and heavenly. The one you were born with was God-engineered to operate only under specific conditions. Astrophysicists use polysyllabic words as long as a freight train to list those elements.
Birds can’t survive under water, nor can earth’s inhabitants exist in heaven, an “other world” where there is no sin, unlimited dimensions and, above all, the presence of our All-Everything God. Happily, before we enter heaven, we’ll trade our old bod in for a new, “glorified” body – the kind Jesus has now and will have for eternity. Like yours. Not even Nordstrom can top this.
** ”And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for Him.” Hebrews 9:27,28
*1 Corinthians 15:42-44
