I thought being raptured in the spirit and being partially raptured in the body was the coolest, most profound experience I have ever had. I was wrong. Now that I am fully raptured in the body, nothing else compares. Now that I know the real and true eternal spirit, nothing else can compare. Now that the Lord God Almighty has revealed himself to me, nothing else can be capable of comparison.
I am whole in ways that I never knew wholeness can be. I am as new as Eden's children, before the fall. I need not eat, except when I am desirous of tasting food. I need not sleep except when I desire to do so. I need not awaken, except when my spirit wants to frolic. Doing the Lord's will is effortless, a mere thought accomplishes the mission. A glance in the right direction moves all mountains.
As for my body, it's a stunning forty, though I'm 96 and counting. Ears and eyes and teeth have all restored. I know no pain or injury, and my spine is ramrod straight. I know no indigestion, although my stomach is still not sealed. I know no muscle spasms, even when I lift my heel, and I know that all the muzak in the world can never make me reel. I am whole in ways I knew not whole can be.
