2 Cor 5:1
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved,
we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in
the heavens.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Those who have truly surrendered to Christ are made NEW!
With that new creation (new birth) there is the ASSURANCE
of "an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens!"

That place called heaven is created by our "Builder and
Maker"
Who is God! (See Heb. 11:10)

This body in which we live on earth is a burden!
We age.
We have sickness and accidents.
And SOME of the burden we put upon ourselves by
inappropriate habits.

But when death eventually strips true Christians of this flesh,
we will, by God's grace and mercy, be clothed with a NEW BODY,
which will be a NEW "building of God!"

1 Peter 1:3-5
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are KEPT by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
KJV


2 Cor 5:4-5
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened:
not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon,
that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God,
who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
KJV

The "earnest," or down payment of God to the true beliver
is the entrance of His Holy Spirit into our lives. (See Eph. 1:14)
He constantly assures us of the fact that these bodies are
TEMPORARY, and, that God has ALREADY determined that
one day they will be CHANGED to be ETERNAL!!

When age makes you weak,
when sickness comes to your body,
when accidents bring difficult problems,
BE ASSURED Christian, that your NEW BODY in Christ
is ALREADY being prepared by your LORD!

Love ya!
