Paul speaks to the scoffers starting in verse 35 of 1 Corinthians 15 to explain the nature of those resurrected.

In Luke 24:36 Jesus, resurrected, appears to the disciples bodily. He then encourages them to examine him and see that he has flesh and bones. Then he ate some food. Though he was glorified, yet he retained his human nature.

Likewise in John 20 and 21 the disciples have encounters with Jesus physically.

We can trust that we will be made like him (Romans 8:29).

There are only three(3) examples of the new body Christians will be receiving that I can think of: 1 The body that Adam & Eve had before they lost them after eating the fruit from the Forbidden Tree in the Garden of Eden and 2 The body that Jesus has now which he got upon resurrection. Christians both dead and alive as beneficiaries of Christ's will these new bodies when GOD sounds the trumpets for us to come forth.

Sit with a minister, elder body is God given from the start, each body of flesh, yet was God is concerned about in giving us the ability to choose or not is ours...did so out of love for us ...god is concerned about your soul as you should be also. Our bodies are just a compartment to carry our souls as it were, for when we die we go to the ground from where we were taken...biology shows us that we disenegrate there, yet your breathe of life is what makes you a living Soul in Gods eyes, each one has Gods notice and if he created us, he surely can re-create us ! Yet He promised this would happen when the time of his re-appearing shall come. That s why Christ the Son of God willingly gave His life, and more importantly, has Risen again in what ? SPIRIT ...to be with His Father in heaven....to show us from words in scripture he will do just that! Yet you realize that the dead are risen first by Christs own words! There are only a chosen few that God has called to his side that were still alive on earth. Nobody goes to heaven when they die. But it sounds nice too say and teach, God made us and he can re-Make us. There is so much more to this but it will have to wait.......please dont worry, about what kind of body God may give us, cause this is all we know, these bodies we have....imagine being a spirit though!! Wow...

From de days of John the Baptist until... This generation shall witneess the second coming of Christ, God ist working with a group of people,a prophetic generation that is leading a spiritual revolution to establich the house God.Those who will be raised and the living who are victorious shall be changed and reign with Christ.

I thought I understood this verse until I read about the resurrection of the body. will our body and souls be reunited? because this changes the whole meaning of this verse. How do I find out?

I believe 1 Corinthians 15:51 is relevant for this generation.
