   When the Lord comes back He will change these bodies of ours. There is nothing vile or evil about the human body in itself. The evil lies in the wrong use of it, which we put it through.

 

    Our body is lowly, a body of humiliation. It is subject to wrinkles, scars, age, suffering, sickness, & death. It has limits & it cramps us.

 

   Our Lord will transfer it into a body of glory. We do not yet know the full meaning of this change. We do know that it will no longer be subject to decay or death, to the limitations of time or natural elements. It will be a real body, but yet suited for the conditions of heaven. It will be a resurrected body like the Lord Jesus Himself.

 

   This does not mean that we will all look alike. Jesus was distinctly recognizable after His resurrection & no doubt each individual will have his or her own physical identity in eternity.

   This passage does not teach that we shall be like the Lord Jesus as far as the attributes of God are concerned. We will never have all knowledge or all power, neither shall we be able to be in all places at the same time.

   But we shall be morally like the Lord Jesus. We shall forever be free from sin. This passage of Scripture does not give us enough to satisfy our curiosity, but it is enough to inspire comfort & stimulate hope.

   According to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. The transformation of our bodies will be accompanied by the same divine power which the Lord will later use to subdue all things to Himself.

He is able to save (Hebrews 7:25).

 He is able to aid (Hebrews 2:18)

He is able to keep (Jude 24).

Now here in this verse we learn that He is able to subdue. “This is <> our God forever & ever: He will be our guide even to death (Psalm 48:14)
