Resurrection Bodies


Do we receive perfected bodies at the Rapture?

If we get a body like Jesus had during his resurrected time on the earth we would be able to move through solid objects, perhaps move through time, etc.


The way I read 1 Cor. 15:51-53, those of us alive at the rapture will receive perfected bodies immediately, just as those being resurrected receive theirs. The living don’t discard their earthly bodies at that time, they’re just changed. Think of it like a massive upgrade to your computer. Afterward, it’s still the same computer, but it works a whole lot better. I’m not aware of any additional changes to our physical nature subsequent to that.

And my understanding of 1 John 3:2 is that our new bodies will be similar in capability to the Lord’s. “Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be, has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”
