"Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see." — Helen Keller
Imagine, again, that you are back in the office of the Great Physician. God's diagnosis of death and decay has left you stunned; your soul is reeling with that reality. But now He's leaning towards you. He's taking you by the hand and He's lifting your chin and looking you in the eyes—He has something to say:
"My child, the death, the pain, the decay...it is all temporary—an immeasurably small moment in light of the eternity that awaits you. What lies beyond is incomparable. The asthma, the cancer, the bruises, scabs, and scars...these will not last. Dream of an existence where nothing perishes, where the physical is shed and you are raised in a spiritual body. Trust Me, look to the future and see with the eyes of faith a heavenly, timeless, and painless existence—an existence of an entirely different kind, a body of an entirely different kind. Be patient, My child; have faith. For with a flash of light you will be changed."
I'm not making this up. God has written it down for us in His Word:
The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor. So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body…in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. —1 Corinthians 15:41-44, 52
Yes, our physical bodies will decay, die, and decompose, but we will be resurrected, and our spiritual bodies will have an imperishable glory and power.
Your body will be different. Not just healed and not just better…it will be radically different.
The Great Physician is finished talking for the moment. God pushes back and gives you a moment to let this soak in. Are you thinking about it, I mean really thinking about it? Do you see the big picture now ?
God, I know that this day will be filled with decay and death, but focus my heart on the full diagnosis! Make this future reality a practical truth today. Amen.
