 50C.  Man Will Be Like Angels In The Holy City

 


Eternal Life in the Holy City is perfect and is completely different from this miserable life man is suffering here on this earth.

50D.1   Is it this body we possess today that will dwell in the holy city?   

Apostle Paul states in    1Cor:15:50:

I declare to you, brothers,  that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. (NIV)

 The same verse in another version of the Bible:

Brothers, I am saying this, because men in their physical form cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which can decay cannot have a share in what never dies. (IEB)

An earthly body made of flesh and blood cannot get into the Kingdom of God.  These decaying bodies of ours are not the right kind to live forever.

50D.2   What will be done to these bodies of ours to make them fit for heaven?

When and when will this happen?   In the verses 1Cor:15:51-53 this is written:

Listen, I tell you a mystery:  We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed --- in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and will be changed.  For the perishable must clothe itself with imperishable,  and the mortal with immortality. (NIV)

Our mortal bodies will be transformed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.  All those who will be saved but who have died, the faithful members of Christ's Church who have died will suddenly live again with new bodies that will never, never die. Our earthly bodies shall be changed to heavenly bodies that will live forever. 

50D.3   What will be the likeness of the changed bodies?

Apostle Paul answers in Philippians 3: 20-21:

But our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control,  will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. (NIV)

When our Lord Jesus Christ comes back He will change these bodies into glorious bodies like his own, with the same mighty power that he will use to conquer all things.

50D.4   If people will not die anymore, how will they live?  Will they still marry or given in marriage?

In Matthew 22:29-30,  Jesus explained:

Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.   For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven. (NKJV)

They will live like angels in heaven and they will neither marry or given in marriage.

Eternal Life in the Holy City is perfect and is completely different from this miserable life here on this earth. This decaying earthly body is not the right kind to live forever. When the Lord Jesus Christ return, all those who will be saved but who have died will be resurrected, and those who are still alive will never taste death.  The Lord will transform their lowly bodies into a glorious body like his own so they can live forever. God's people will then live like angels in heaven. They will never die anymore and neither will they marry or given in marriage.
