How Do the Resurrected Change?

He will change our humble bodies and make them like his glorious body… (Phl 3:21)

Phl 3:20-21 Our citizenship, however, is in heaven, and it is from there that we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He will change our humble bodies and make them like his glorious body through the power that enables him to bring everything under his authority.

The book of Revelation describes Jesus’ appearance; the resurrected will be like Jesus!

Rev 1:14 His head and his hair were white like wool, in fact, as white as snow. His eyes were like flames of fire, In 1 Cor 15:49 Paul says they have borne the image of the earthy, but that one day (meaning resurrection day) they will also bear the image of the heavenly. – Who else could this heavenly man be other than Jesus? Rev. 1:14 is therefore a description of the resurrected people as well.
