1 Corinthians 15:20; 2 Corinthians 5:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Philippians 3:20-21; John 20:19; Luke 24:31, 39,43; Matthew 22:30; 1 Corinthians 15:42-44 The Lord Jesus Christ, will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body. Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” When the doors were shut... Jesus came and stood in the midst. He... ate in their presence. He vanished from their sight. In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage. The body raised in incorruption... glory... power... spiritual

The life of natural-bodied citizens
Isaiah 65:20-23; 9:7; 35:5-6; 2:4 They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit... They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth children for trouble. No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old. Of the increase of His government... there will be no end. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
