We may not know all the answers but we have some
Matthew 18:10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who
is in heaven.
This indicates that God has a body of sorts. Most scripture points towards a spiritual body and some seem to show him in a physical body. A face he
John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
This seems to show some tangible aspect of heaven. However it could be tangible on a spiritual level. Not physical.
Revelation 5:9-13 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood
you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they
shall reign on the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering
myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom
and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is
in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
God sits on a throne. This show he has a body and given we are made in his image show his form is human.
Revelation 22:1-5 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through
the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each
month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb
will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They
will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
This ones a good description of heaven.
2 Corinthians 5:8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
This suggests we do not have a physical body, so what do we get?
Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be
like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
So we get a body like Yeshi, who some believe to be God himself.... story for another time. Ok real quick.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life,that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
Philippians 4:23 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
The spirit is our base form and it inhabits the body. And God dwelling place is a spiritual place.
Genesis 1:2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the
So how many bodies do we have?
1 Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
So our heavenly bodies in Gods spiritural realm is a spiritual body. Just like Yeshi who is just like the father. Which would mean we would not have
the capacity to love just like your understanding of jealousy and wrath. But some type of 'need'.
Do heavenly being feel emotionally? The angel in revalation states.
Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
To rejoice or be glad are both emotional responses.
Within the context of this discussion i think its clear the spirit can feel emotions.
