    1. Does Christ in heaven has a physical body today?

    2. Will God has a body for ever in the future eternity?

    IMO
    I'm not sure I don't think scripture says. But think about it. A physical body would be a limitation. God is everywhere, He couldn't be in a physical body. God is a spirit and doesn't need a body.

    I would advise a careful exegesis of the fifteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians. There---you do not need to prove that Jesus has a physical body---rather its your word against Scripture if you deny a present day physical Jesus who now resides in Heaven.

    But to answer--Scripture answers for us--

    1. Yes

    2. Yes

    Thomas was told to touch the actual physical scars on Jesus' hands and sides. Jesus ate food after His resurrection as well, and the disciples were on the hill when Jesus physically and literally ascended from earth and into Heaven.

    The Bible also speaks of Jesus as being seated at the right hand of the Father. It appears that what God the Son did was come to earth and eternally enter a human state. He did not give up His humanity when He was resurrected nor when He ascended into heaven.

    When we think about this, isn't it part of the awesome gift that God gave us so we could be saved?

    I have always felt that our resurrection bodies will be glorified like Jesus' glorified body. We won't have the nail prints and the spear wound, of course, but I think those marks will remain on Jesus' body throughout eternity as a reminder of what He did for us.

    Interesting!

    We will see God the Father and God the Son (in a body) in heaven? i mean, the ONLY God will be visible as two separate persons by us? (God the father and God the son to his right)
