“... as we will be given clothing that is appropriate for whatever we do in the Afterlife.”

Just my luck - waders and a shovel.

Sorry buy I don't see how you will get to heaven. You will inherit the earth.

The former things will no longer come to mind... Since there will be nothing sexual, the lightest of fabrics will suffice.

Do you mean to say there's no sex in Heaven?

I suspect suits and ties will not be mandatory!

I hope not. Even in the eighties when it was all the rage I refused to wear a tie. Although I did have a pair of fingerless lace gloves.

Why men start their day by tying a noose around their neck I will never understand

we’ll all be wearing standard issue Angel suits?

No, angels are a different class of created beings. Angels don't turn into humans, and humans don't turn into angels.

In the Book of Revelation, the saints before the throne of God are “wearing white robes” (7:9; see also 3:5; 4:4; 6:11; 7:13).

Bodyless souls wear clothes???

But St. John did not see resurrected bodies because the universal resurrection has not yet taken place.

Of course it has...John is witnessing the Marriage of the Bride and Groom, in Heaven...

Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready

. Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The commentaries say that the white robes are symbolic of victory, joy and resurrection.

You'd better find some new commentaries...Better yet, throw the commentaries in the trash...

Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

The scriptures clear up and correct a lot of commentaries...

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

There's the completion of the Resurrection that you said doesn't exist in the book...zz

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Here's the NEXT Resurrection...

Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Again, the scriptures will clear up any man-made Tradition...

The only Saudi I would claim to know/know of is Bandar ... and he surprised the hell out of me with his politics. I’m sixty three, for reference, and I’ll claim my genetics will give me a longer life than that deceiver, unless his agents succeed in serving the minor moon goddess Islam claims is Allah. In the final analysis, Bandar is a pussy toward the Islamic maniacs his family fear most.

The only person in heaven is Jesus.
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

Mary and Mohammad and the Saints are not there.

Christ is the only one with a glorified body in heaven.

Perhaps that was because they always saw Him clothed before His death. Not to mention that social ettiquette dictated that the disciples He met were also clothed. His being clothed with them could have been so that they would be comfortable and recognize Him as He was before.

When Christ first lived on the earth, He did not have an angelic glow about Him that could have covered His nakedness.

Because of this, it is possible that He would never have a want or need of one.

LOL!

There is no way anyone could convince me that a tie on a woman was feminine. But maybe that was the plan.

I rather like being in touch with my feminine side at all times! :o])

The glorified bodies of Jesus and Mary are clothed, but what is the nature of their clothing?

Uh...

...I don't think she's been resurrected yet.

The clothes we are buried in are what we will have when we “cross over.”

Once the Resurrection takes place, it won’t matter what we’re wearing when we die and/or are buried in, as we will be given clothing that is appropriate for whatever we do in the Afterlife.

This sounds SO much like Boot Camp! ;^)
