These our bodies are our earthly houses, a tent, meaning a temporary habitation, and every moment we spend in these earthly bodies is time spent away from our eternal home in heaven with Jesus.
So one day we will all die, or, we will be unclothed, but further clothed with heavenly bodies, "that mortality may be swallowed up by life" 2 Corinthians 5:4. God, has given us the Spirit to guarantee this, to prepare us for this transition.
This is what God has prepared for us, that while in our present bodies, we should look forward to the day when we shall have heavenly bodies, that day when we shall put on like new clothes, we die and slip into our new bodies. It’s only a matter of time, these dying bodies will be swallowed up by our heavenly bodies.
"We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord" 2 Corinthians 5:8.
However, while in this body, what you do will determine your destiny, for each one will receive the things done in the body, "according to what he has done, whether good or bad" 2 Corinthians 5:9. Make it your aim, to be well pleasing to God, so that where he’s you’ll be also.
For this reason God has given us the ministry of reconciliation "that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" 2 Corinthians 5:19-21.
This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others; that there is life after death.
