Truth About Heaven Pt. 4
There is often confusion in Christianity in what happens to our bodies after death. The answer lies in several passages that tell us that there is a separation from spirit and body at death, "absent from the body is present with the Lord," 2Cor.5:8. But, the believer's spirit goes directly to heaven with a perfected or glorified spirit into the presence of the Lord. There will be a reuniting of body and spirit at the resurrection of the body and we will then receive a glorified body that will also be fit for heaven. The significance of a glorified body and soul in heaven is one of the greatest blessings for a Christian Christ gives to His children.
Primary Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15:49-53
