This is page 3 of 12. "Eternity" begins here.

Jesus even ate while they watched in amazement.

Luke 24:41-43 - Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”

- They gave him a piece of broiled fish

- and he ate it as they watched.

His body wasn’t normal, by any stretch of the imagination, but it looked normal; at least until his ascension. Later on in the Bible Jesus once again shone like the sun.

Rev. 1:6 - And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.

Our same body will be resurrected.

I have to admit, I was hoping that in the resurrection I would be taller with whiter teeth. But who knows, maybe God will take requests.

I cor. 15:53 - For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

That's the same body transformed, just like Jesus was; not a different body. I wonder if we'll have the same genetic structure. Except with genetic perfection restored, of course.

No more mortality, no more corruption. We are told on many occasions that the curse will be lifted for ever. That means no more death, illnesses or shortcomings. We'll all be strong as an ox.

Did you know that right now our bodies are asymmetrical? Well we are. Look straight into a mirror. You will see that one eye is slightly higher than the other. They are different sizes and shapes. Your nose is off to one side a little; one ear a little higher. Every aspect of our body is a little out of symmetry.

In eternity we will all be mighty good looking, of face and body. Won’t that be great? We’ll all look like movie stars. No more having the “perfect face for a radio show!”

A beautiful new city contains our primary residence.

John 14:2, 3 - In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

- And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Rev. 21: - And I saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully adorned for her husband.

Jesus awaits the joy of eternity just like we do.

He knew, at the time of his crucifixion, the joy he will have with us in eternity

Heb. 12:1b, 2 - And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

- We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
