Q. Since we won’t get our resurrected bodies until the rapture, do you think the people in heaven now have intermediate bodies? If so what do you think they do with their time? When we are raptured and have new bodies we will spend our time ruling with Christ during the Millennium and then for eternity so we will have things to do. Thanks I appreciate your answers.
A. People in heaven are in the spirit, they have no bodies. (2 Cor. 5:8) And since time is a physical property that only effects physical beings, they don’t experience the passage of time. Therefore they don’t need anything to do. When they get their resurrection bodies at the rapture it will seem as if they only died a moment before, even though on Earth as many as 2000 years will have passed. How this can be is one of many unsolved mysteries in the dimension of time.
