Our Bodies To Be Spiritual, But Still Physical
42 So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
Humans And Animals Have A Natural Body
This verse tells us that if there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body and it will be raised. Animals may have different looking flesh than humans, but they have a natural body. For those of us who have lost a treasured pet can take comfort in this verse that our beloved friends will be with us in heaven. There are other verses in the Bible that make it clear that our animal friends will be with us in heaven, but this verse in very clear.
