[quote=pianoplayingmom]That is not quite accurate. Jesus, being part of the Trinity and fully God, was and is everywhere, including heaven. Yet, we ask, how could that be if He was fully human and here physically on earth at the time? Quite the conundrum for our little brains…or is it?
That could be one way of looking at it, however I think that interpretation is somewhat of a stretch, or maybe I just cant comprehend the true meaning due to my “little brain” In any case there are many more verses that deal with the issue.
Because man goes to his lasting home, and mourners go about the streets; Before the silver cord is snapped and the golden bowl is broken, And the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the broken pulley falls into the well, And the dust returns to the earth as it once was, and the life breath returns to God who gave it.
2 Cor 5: 6-8
So we are always courageous, although we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yet we are courageous, and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord.
1 Thess 5:10
(Jesus) died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live together with him.
For to me life is Christ, and death is gain. If I go on living in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. And I do not know which I shall choose. I am caught between the two. I long to depart this life and be with Christ, (for) that is far better.
2 Cor 5:1
For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven.
2 Cor 5:4
For while we are in this tent we groan and are weighed down, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
