Pay attention to the order: God did not create us first, but first, He created the shell, our body. And God put our true-self, our Spirit made in God’s image, into our body.
We read about the process in the Bible: “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7; NIV)
We humans have always lived in a physical shell with our true self, our Spirit (not to be confused with consciousness) and our soul (thinking, feelings, memories). And we will always have a body because we are not nebulous spirits; we always live in a physical body.
For at the time of the rapture, we receive a new, indestructible immortal body suitable for life in eternity.
Will the new body we receive at the time of the rapture ever die, die and disintegrate?
No. God’s Word says this about our new body: “For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.” (1 Corinthians 15:53; NLT)
