Bodily Resurrection For Christians

Bodily resurrection is not believed by some/many believers. I believe the dead in Christ shall be raised like Jesus with Body, Soul And Spirit. What do you think?

for MIMA, somehow you must have me confused with some other Jacks. I had not thought before about the possibility of there being more than one Jack. I went back and added Jack8937 for all future blogs. I never said Moses maybe died and maybe did'nt. I said exactly the same thing you did only I quoted Deut.34:5-7 - Sorry for the confusion. love Jack8937

To---Steveng and Jack boys we need to stick closer to Scripture. This stated question,"Maybe he (Moses) died, maybe he didn't." Is absolutely outrageous in light of the following Scripture. Joshu 1:2" Moses my servant is dead," tried to do better next time.

I believe that at the rapture, the bodies of those who are dead already will be reunited with their souls in the air and then the living will be caught up in the air as well. Our bodies will be changed to be perfect in every way.

Jack: "Maybe he (Moses) died, maybe he didn't." God says the He buried Moses on a mountaintop somewhere. So, he is surely dead. As for Elijah, I suggest reading a phrase book and read the many phrases that tells of how a person kicked the bucket, bit the dust, how the wings of the wind carried his soul to the happy hunting grounds, etc. (many are from the Bible).

Besides, Jesus himself says that no one has ascended into heaven.

Tommy, Jude 1:9, when St. Michael disputed with the Devil over Moses' body, what did you think was going to happen to it? St. Michael won by rebuking the devil in the Lord's name, but he would hardly have left the body behind to be reclaimed by the devil.

When Moses appeared with Elijah on the mount, Peter and the others could not tell them apart in terms of spirit or flesh, they believed that both were so real and present that they wanted to build tents for them.

The Sadduccess did not believe in the Resurrection Matthew 22:23, they held that only the Torah (Penteteuch - first five books of the Bible) was inspired and all else was not; they were essentially wiped out during the fall of Jerusalem.

But, other Jews did believe in the Resurrection. This was not a new teaching by the Incarnate Word. John 11:24, Martha indicated that she knew that Lazarus would rise with the Resurrection of the Dead before Jesus told her that He was the Resurrection.

Part 2, The bodily resurrection is also described in the Catholic OT, in 2 Maccabbees Chapter 7. This example of faith is referenced in Paul's letter to the Hebrews 11:35.

Not all sects of the Jews believed in the Resurrection, but those who held to the larger canons did. It is these Jews who recognised and followed Christ when He became man and walked among us.

Pek: glad you asked!
Everybody who will be resurrected will be put together again BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME!
By "put together again" I mean that God will again take dust and add the breath of life, resulting in "living souls"
---Pierr7958 on 3/27/07

Moses and Elijah were present at the Transfiguration. Elijah never died, of course. The scriptural data regarding Moses is ambiguous, perhaps deliberately so. Maybe he died, maybe he didn't.

Enoch, of course, never died either.

I think the reason that the "resurrection of the body" as the classic Creeds put it is not more widely believed is because so many "Bible-believing churches" have dropped or even repudiated their use!

More's the pity.

Glady5446, Where do you read that "Moses was resurrected,"? Because He was on the Mount of Transfiguration does not mean that his body had been resurrected, it would reinforce the argument that saints are with the Lord in Spirit until they are resurrected though.

Read these scriptures, Dan 12:2, Jn 5:28-29, Ro 2:6-16. The qualites of the resurrection body will be different from those of the body laid in the grave, 1 Cor 15: 53-54, Phil 3:21. It will still be the same body (1 Cor 15:42-44) which rises again.

Dear Pek: Jesus Christ showed us how to live our earthly life. He also showed us how we would ascend to be with Him after death. The Bloggers gave you Scripture for it. If we are true believers, we are with Him ALWAYS to the end of the age! (Matthew 28:20). From the moment we are born, our flesh is dying. The important question is, how are we living? Are we born-again thru God's Son, Jesus the Christ? Blessings.

Barbara67, Christ gave the example. After He died and ascended to the Father He had a glorified body, so shall it be with us. We will have beautiful glorified bodies to stand before God. Perfect and unable to sin.

Nearly every minister at a funeral says, "Ashes to ashes and dust to dust" so somehow our physical body will rot/decay.
Cemeteries are filled with bones!
So I wonder what kind of body will be resurrected?
1 Corinthians15:35-49 and verses 50-58
to the list of verses about the body.
---BARBARA67 on 5/27/05

The New Testament speaks of those who did not believe in a resurrection. Those who confess Jesus as Lord, will rise with Him. Not in our old bodies..God forbid...they are imperfect! We shall have a new 'resurrection' from any defects! Yahoo!!

"For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:the dead in Christ shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up with them in the air:and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1Thes.16&17
---Rosa on 5/27/05

1st Thessalonians 4:16-17..For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17..Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

You have it right friend we as Christians are going to fly right up to meet him in the air and clouds. TJ
