or was the physical glorified body He inhabited for the 40 days after His Crucifixion used solely for the Apostles' sakes so they could visibly see Him while He remained on earth. Did He resume His original spiritual state when He ascended to heaven and are all of heaven's dwellers in spiritual bodies, or does He, along with everyone else there dwell in glorified bodies of flesh and bone but no blood?

That is what I believe, too. "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him" - Romans 6:9
If Christ were to separate from his body again then he would "die" once more.

I agree...it is one of the things that truly holds us back spiritually from attaining perfection and learning the mysteries of God.

Not really sure if it matters to me exactly the definition of "form"
I do believe that whatever "form" or lack thereof, of Christ or any of the inhabitants of heaven take....it's perfect

We spend a lot of time trying to humanize God, Christ and the Holy Spirit, giving them form and features and arguing about what they think when we should be seeking a spiritual relationship with them..

I agree somewhat and that is why we have essentials vs non essentials so why can't we do both? This thread obviously is a non essential but seeking Him RIGHTLY (Read 1st John) is very important in seeking your spiritual relationship with Him

Although all things are possible with God, I see a difficulty in corporeal bodies however glorified occupying a spiritual realm. It's like trying to make water and oil mix---the two just don't seem compatible. Heaven is a spiritual place, or so we're all taught. When we die we're not immediately implanted into a body of flesh and bone to stand before God---we're in spiritual form. The Bible is silent, best as I know, on if and when we get those physical bodies. My own feeling is that Jesus took on a glorified body for the sake of letting His apostles and the masses see Him and then reverted to a spirit like His Father and like the inhabitants of heaven. I'd just as soon dwell as a spirit for eternity anyhow because I just don't want any reminder of this fleshly body I'm in now regardless if it's glorified or not. But I was just wondering if there's any solid scripture that says "We get a glorified body after we die."
