Truth About God

No Scripture says God's image consists only in intellectual and moral powers. He could not have such faculties without having a body through which these powers could have outlet. These powers could not be conceived of as being parts of a person that had no parts, or of an invisible omni-present unreality that fills all space and solid matter. They must all be concentrated in a real being in the same way that other persons as we know, have such faculties. Naturally God has intellectual and moral faculties, but this does not do away with bodily form. He is a real being with a body, soul, and spirit.

Where do spirit bodies live? In other words where does God and Jesus reside to day in their spirit bodies? When we die and resurrect, where will our spirit bodies live? I'm assuming that at that point we'll all the saints will be in spirit bodies only.

According to the Scripture of the Bible, the location of the planet heaven is in the northern part of the universe ( Isa. 14:12-14 ). In this Scripture we are told that Lucifer led a rebellion into Heaven into the sides of the north. In Ps. 75:6-7 we are told that promotion comes not from the south, east, or west, but from the Lord and therefore from the north.

Paul speaks of "the invisible things" in Heaven as being like the visible things on Earth; that is, the things in Heaven are just like things on Earth ( Rom. 1:20 ). The word "things" is used in many passages in referring to realities in Heaven ( Phil. 2:10; Col. 1:16-20; Heb. 8:12; 9:23 ).

Scriptures used to prove God's moral faculties do not say that He does not have a body like other persons that have moral powers. The same passages that speak of God's faculties also speak of man having the same faculties, and no man argues that man does not have a body because he has such faculties. So why apply this argument only to God, who should be even more real than His creatures?

If all the expressions about God having a bodily parts are mere figures of speech and human expressions as is contended by Bible teachers, trying to convey some idea of God, then it may be well asked, what kind of ideas about God do such expressions convey? Do they tell us that God Does not have bodily parts or that He does? If they are trying to tell us that He does not have them, then they are a peculiar way for an intelligent being to convey such ideas. Any human being could excel Godin expressing himself if this is the way God tell us He does not have a body with parts and passions. It must be remembered there cannot be figures of speech of anything that is not real.
