    We will have bodies like Jesus, not Angels.
  • Nuhu Zakka Abamu for verse 10
    My prayer every day is,may the whole nation be save through the power of his resurrection amen
  • Yes Philipian 3:21 means that we will have bodies like those of angels. Actual a human being is a triune being that is the spirit, the soul and the physical body flesh . What is actually cremeted or what actually die is the physical body for flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven , your spirit and soul remains fully alive, this means in physical dearth you are fully conscious but invisible but you can communicate with other spirits, you will be able to see or move to spiritual worlds like paradise or hell.
  • Rhonda Matthews for verse 10
    My Pastor just preach on knowing Him. Our goal as Christians should be to know him more, and more. Heaven is an aspect of knowing Him, a reward, but so not the goal. Heaven is a part of Him, but it is not Him.
