The Resurrection – Body Will Be Raised

The Christian’s Resurrection-body will be a Glorious Body

The apostle set forth the differences between human bodies laid in the grave and resurrected bodies. According to Paul’s language, the change will be fourfold; the new body will be distinguished by four great qualities, in contrast to the present earthly house of this tabernacle.


So also, is the resurrection of the dead. If it [the physical body] is sown in corruption; it is raised up in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised up in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised up in power. It is sown a physical body; it is raised up a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body. (1 Corinthians 15:42-44).

Thus, a resurrection of the body is taught in the Scriptures without any distinctions as to what constitutes the body. God, who made the body of man, knows what is and what is not essential to its glorified state. Man does not. It is enough for the Christian to know that the body shall be raised and live again. All that properly belonged to the body and is essential to its identity and integrity will be raised again to life, and will go to constitute the new or resurrection-body. The body which will be raised will not be the same in the sense that the same particles of matter shall compose it, but the same only in the sense that it will have sprung from that buried body.

For man, then, there are two kinds of bodies---one from Adam, the first parent; the other from Christ, the second Adam.

God is Good! Love you all.
