My Insights from the Bible
Eternal Life with Eternal Bodies
50 I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 15: 50 - 57 ESV)

At the end of time when Jesus returns we who are still here will be changed. Our new bodies will last forever and not grow old and die. Those who have died will be raised to life again with new bodies. This only applies to Christians whose names are recorded in God's book of life.
The evil, the scoffers, the tyrants, and unbelievers won't be there. There time comes later when they come back to life to face judgment and punishment. It does not matter if you do not believe in God or not; one day everybody stands before almighty God to give an account of themselves. Many will be rewarded with eternal life and many will face eternal punishment and pain. These ones will regret their fate for ever and ever. As Christians we can look forward to having new bodies; our hope is in the life to come.
