The Spiritual Body

Vital Health Science Breakthrough of Our Life Time!

 

Let examine what the bible has to say on the following subjects. What takes place at the point of death? Do we go to sleep? Or, cease to exist? Are there trumpets that sound to awaken us? Do we all participate in the first or second resurrection? Are there exceptions? What attributes does a resurrected body possess? Just exactly what is a spiritual body!

The cares and distractions of daily living, too often, occupy our attention to the exclusion of spiritual matters. Euphoria as a state of being must inevitably come to an end. Depression surely will not persist. Especially, when we have confidence in our Creator’s good well towards us. There is most certainly, opposition in all things. A little contemplation will reveal why such is true. Understanding that life is calculated and implemented by our creator to provide the greatest possible individual opportunity for eternal growth. Yet, many seem to be perfectly happy to go to bed each night without having any curiosity as to the purpose of life. It’s my prayer that after having read these few words, you will not fit into this category.

Death overcomes many before they have taking any time to contemplate their own mortal demise. Is there a purpose for mortal life? Is that purpose beneficial? Could life be a form of punishment and/or reward? I have heard a number of people say that life is hell. What do you think? Does the benefit of mortal life become enhanced by our behavior? Can we be masters of our circumstances? Once again, what does the bible tell us about such questions?

The Preacher will attempt to argue for the correctness of the following statements. Let me know if you feel he has successfully accomplished that goal. The Preacher realizes that he will not be able to address the listed subjects at this setting. The Preacher may not follow the order listed here but has the intent to address each of these subjects per the wisdom and strength afforded by the Almighty, our Heavenly Father, the creator of all things through his Son, Jesus the Christ.

If you, the Preacher’s reader would have a topic you would like him to consider addressing, simple make that particular request.

1.      Jesus of Nazareth, who sacrificed himself willingly for the sins of each of us, is an offspring of God, the Eternal Father.

2.      We are all the literal offspring of the Eternal Father.

3.      It follows that we are all brothers and sisters.

4.      The bible says that Jesus was the first born in heaven.

5.      Jesus is therefore our older brother.

6.      He is also the only begotten of the flesh.

7.      Preexistence is taught in the bible.

8.      Where there is a Father, surely there is a Mother.

9.      Children’s potential are to become like their parents.

10.  Our body and spirit will separate at death.

11.  The physical body will return to the world of coarse simple matter.

12.  God will assign the spirit body to a region best suited for further educational development.

13.  There is a component permanently joined with the spiritual body that we may refer to as intelligence

14.  The pre-mortal spirit body has structured form like the physical body but of a much more refined material.

15.  This spiritual body can’t be destroyed.

16.  Where is the Church that Jesus started?

17.  Is baptism necessary?

18.  Parents often provide learning experiences that will teach their children how to thrive in their environment.

1 Corinthians 15:19- If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

This verse has some special meaning for me. It may accuse those of us who haven’t received a firm conviction of Christ’s redemptive powers. The Preacher wants you to expect the grace of God to remove any doubt about Jesus. Can you say that you bare witness that Jesus Christ lives? The Father that draws us to Jesus, my he manifest such truth to you is the Preachers prayer. The Preacher bares witness that Jesus, the Christ lives, guides his people and looks after the Church of God.

1 Corinthians 15:35-43 (The Preacher counsels you to read the entire chapter carefully.)

35But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

38But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

39All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

40There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

41There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

42So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

43It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

The Preacher is not inclined to elaborate. Perhaps he should but he finds it so obvious. Tell him what is not clear and then he will attempt to clarify.

Ecclesiastes 12:7

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Isa 26:19

Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead,

1 Corinthians 15:44
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1 Corinthians 15:43-45 (in Context) 1 Corinthians 15 (Whole Chapter)

There is a pre-mortal spiritual body and a post mortal body. This is not demonstrated clearly at this juncture. The Preacher will locate the scriptures that will establish these assertions another time. A body consists of structure and material substance. We have just read that there are two types of body. There is the natural body and spiritual body. It simply cannot be written any plainer. There is the natural mortal body consisting of flesh, blood and bone. As you will see, the spiritual body is made up of a modified incorruptible flesh and bone. The spiritual body does not require blood to sustain them or animate the same. I believe the pre-mortal spiritual body well be granted the power unto its self according as needed to sustain and animate. The world, our planet, was created by beings of the pre-mortal body types. Prove it. Later the Preacher will take the time to successful do just that. 

Hebrews 12:9

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh, which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Hebrews 12:8-10 (in Context) Hebrews 12 (Whole Chapter)

Here we are to understand that spirits have a Father. To me a father is a progenitor I need clarification on the meaning of  “and live”. I suggest that this means being restored back into the presence of God, our Eternal Father. The Father of our spirits, our eternal progenitor is the source of the life referred to here. How can salvation be fulfilled without being restored into the presence of the heavenly family and tabernacle of the Father? To exist, but be separated for all time from the presence of the Heavenly Father would be torment. An unhappiness in which the eating worms never dies.

Job 19:26
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

Job tells us, that he will have flesh when he sees God. Job will need to experience the resurrection process in order to be cloth by a modified type of flesh. The bible tells us that the resurrected body will be incorruptible. Mortal flesh is corruptible and therefore a change or modification must take place. We will never receive our mortal flesh again. Our previously use bodies will not again house out spirits. There is no cause to be sad, no, not in the least? It has been written. I don’t recall where. But, that the most rebellious of humankind, if they only knew for certain the habitat they would enjoy after their resurrection, they would commit suicide to get there. The horror of that thought leaves me shuttering. Existence without the companionship of the Heavenly Father, and family, would truly be an eternal damnation. The eternal lake of fire and brimstone seems like a good metaphor for such a condition. Would you agree? 

Isaiah 26:19
Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
Isaiah 26:18-20 (in Context) Isaiah 26 (Whole Chapter)

Daniel 7:15
I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

Daniel’s reference to the spirit in the midst of his body strongly indicates to me his knowledge of spiritual component of his being.

It is in error to assume that spiritual can only imply “immaterial.” This can be seen from:

1Cor 10:1-4

Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Who was it that followed them? Christ, our Jesus, thousands of years prior to his coming into the world. The Preacher does not want you to miss this. More will be said later.

When Paul speaks of a spiritual body, he means a material yet incorruptible and immortal body adapted to the heavenly clime, and this is in contrast to the natural body, which refers to the corruptible and mortal body that is adapted to the earthly clime.

Here it is understood that in spiritual rock and spiritual drink there is an intended modification of the idea of the material rock and material drink, but it is not the intent to eliminate the material character of either the rock or drink.

The same idea can be seen in Paul’s own explanation of the spiritual body:

1 Corinthians 15:45-49

45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

47The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.

48As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Hence, the second Adam, who is the returning Christ, or the Lord from Heaven, who will quicken the dead at His appearing, is called a quickening spirit, yet in referring to Him as a spirit, Paul does not imply that He is without a material body. Instead, the obvious intent is to explain His meaning of spiritual body by illustrating it with the resurrected body of Christ. This is an expected explanation to anyone believing in a bodily resurrection because:

The resurrected body of Christ is the prototype. This is implied in the context, because Paul said, “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” That is, whereas the first Adam was the prototype of the present body, the Second Adam is the prototype of the spiritual body. This principle is very clearly taught elsewhere in the Bible (Rom 8:29; Philip 3:21; 1Jn 3:2). There can be no doubt that Christ was raised in a material body of flesh and bones.

Luke 24:39-43
39Behold 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.

40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

43And he took it, and did eat before them.

The bodies of the resurrected will surely be identical in composition to the glorified bodies of those who will be yet alive when Christ returns, but it is obviously true that the latter will possess a modified form of the present body. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed … For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put immortality. Thus, the bodies of those who are alive when Christ returns are not done away, but are changed from corruptible to incorruptible and from mortal to immortality.

The denial of a bodily resurrection places one at odds with plain teachings of Paul elsewhere in the Bible. For example, consider:

Rom 8:10,11

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Isa 26:19

Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

 

Dan 12:2

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

The Preacher has burned enough energy for today. He has laid out some challenging work for the future. He prays that the Lord might permit him to finish what seems fitting and meet. May God bless with his grace and peace, all those who take these things to heart, seeking truth by humbly reading the bible. Who is the teacher of all truth among us today? The Holy Ghost, and you know that.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest
    in its field. Wonderful blog!
