Everyone Gets Their Body Back At The End of Time


When the resurrection of the body occurs, everyone gets their body back, both the saved and the condemned! This is a fact that many people are woefully unaware of — even those who every Sunday habitually professes belief in the ‘resurrection of the body’ during the Creed. The resurrection of the body ‘of both the just and the unjust’ will precede the Last Judgment (CCC 1038). 

Since at the end of time the person going to hell gets their body back, the people in Hell will suffer BODILY torments eternally as well. That’s why Jesus warns people to be on guard against Gehenna (Hell) where BOTH your soul AND YOUR BODY will be lost! (Matthew 10:28; Luke 12:4-5). 


Jesus often speaks of “Gehenna” of “the unquenchable fire” reserved for those who to the end of their lives refuse to believe and be converted, where both soul and body can be lost (CCC 1034). 


The bodies of people going to Heaven are instruments of God’s glorification (Philippians 3:20-21; 1 Corinthians 15:40-55) and will be without suffering, without ‘aches and pains’ and these ‘glorified bodies’ will be associated with other gifts as well.
