1 Corinthians 15 has much to say about the resurrection body. The chapter states that Christ is the first fruits of the resurrection. This seems to support the idea that our own resurrected bodies will be similar to Christ's. Paul also contrasts the perishable body with the imperishable resurrected body using the image of a seed sown. According to this chapter in 1 Corinthians, the perishable body greatly pales in comparison to the splendor of the resurrected body.

We will be a spirit. A spirit has no age, color, young or old. The bible says we will be known as were known. I've heard that silly ole physic Slyvia Brown. She thinks that when one dies they go to the age 30. No matter how old you are when you die, you will go to age 30. She is so fake.

David wrote, "Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them."

David wrote, "Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with _____,"

catherine: "Steveng>>> You can mock all you want."

Catherine, You definately need to lighten up a little, well, maybe a lot. I wasn't mocking. King Solomon wrote: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: "...a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance..."

Catherine, It is just fine if you state your opinion and your beliefs. But do you have go as far as name calling? And to be so rude? You can answer a question in love and still get your point across.

Steveng>>> You can mock all you want. We will have glorified bodies just like Jesus. I do not reason the word of God. Man I am just so glad that I am saved, from the fires of hell. And Jesus's BLOOD did it.

catherine: "Do not read liars. We will be like JESUS."

So, we are all going to look like how Jesus is described in Revelation? :)

Do not read liars. We will be like JESUS.

greetings.We will be known as we are known by others.The average human life span is but a single heart beat in comparrison to an eternal life span.Age is an unimportant issue when eternity is factored in .It is interesting to ponder our appearances that we know does not rely on genetic traits and a body that is prepared for us which we have not been considered in its outward appearances.What does our awaiting form appear to others to look like is interesting to the imagination.

The bible says we'll be known as were known. Meaning I will know everyone in heaven, because I will know them by their spirit. So that is telling me that what we look like here on earth is how we will look like in heaven. With our glorified bodies of course. My mom was very ill. When I see her in heaven, she won't be ill no more. Neither will I.

We will be young, although I can't say what "age." We couldn't be old, because we will have no ailments - Revelations 21:4. We will have to be old enough to walk the streets of gold and to sing - see book of Revelations
---Debby on 7/29/07


Ben:

The turth is that in eternity there is no time so age if not a factor. We cannot comprehend what our glorified bodies will look like.
---Marcia on 7/29/07


How do you know that there will be no infants or young children? The Bible doesn't say that, it's speculation. The Bible doesn't say we will all look the same age, either. I've heard some say we will all look about the age of 33. The Bible doesn't say that. No one really knows.
---Roger on 7/29/07


Allow me to straighten this up "There will be no one that looks like an infant, or old man or woman."

This should read "There will be no one that looks like an infant, old man or old woman."

Reading what I first wrote could be misconstrued to seem to imply that I think there will be no one who looks female. I do not want my name associated with that teaching :o). I can not imagine heaven without the beauty of women.
---Josef on 7/29/07


This of course is simply my belief. I have no scriptural reference for this statement. I think we will look just like we do now, simply perfected. I believe we will appear fully mature physically, the perceived age of Jesus when He ascended, regardless of our age at our demise. There will be no one that looks like an infant, or old man or woman. There will be no physical or mental defects or illness. Age will be irrelevant, although thru the millennia we will still be aware of the passage of time.
---Josef on 7/28/07


Our new bodies will be glorified bodies just like Jesus'. The answer is NO! There will be no young or old. the age when we are raptured it will be no more. It will happen twinkling of an eye. Changed we shall be . [JESUS CHRIST] We will be like. That's all folks, that I know.

Jesus was 33.5 years when He died. However, He did begin ministry at the age of 30. He ministered for 3.5 years. Daniel refers to His ministry when he talks about the sacrifice and oblation being cut off in the middle of the year. Jesus, the final sacrifice, was cut off in the middle of the year and, in that, He cut off the sacrifices and oblations that could not make the worshippers perfect.

I like the idea that we will get to be our perfect selves if we ate right, excercised, and did all the other things we are supposed to do.
---Irma on 7/28/07


Donna...Amen to that! I used to tell my sons that when I got to be 40 I would stop dying my hair. Then I changed it to 50. Now it is just not going to happen.
---Susie on 2/23/07


**We will be a spirit. A spirit has no age, color, young or old.**

Wrong, Rebecca.

Contrary to what Jehovah's False Witnesses teach, Jesus rose from the dead in a PHYSICAL body, though one that was changed and glorified, and He said as much.

Luke 24:39
Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

How could we be recognized if we don't have an appearance of being the same person? It is confusing to me. I wonder about it alot.

Actually we will not be any age. Age is for this life only. We will have put on the incorruptible and in Heaven there is no ages for souls.
---Helen_5378 on 2/22/07


Rebecca; this idea of people being 30 years of age in heaven comes from the fact that Jesus was about 30 years of age when he died, and Scripture says we will be like him. I once heard serious Bible students express this point of view.
