Sincerity Should Be Your Watchword, Iniquity Degrades Your Value

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Notice that Jesus did not say, I'm going to prepare 'places' but a ,place' for the disciples. He was referring to his death, burial and resurrection. He was talking about a place in Him. Think about this for a moment, supposed there are rooms in heaven, but can the mansions in heaven be dirty or unkept to need special preparation by Jesus for us? I thought everything in heaven is already beautiful and ready for use. Listen to His words to the Jews, 

Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up..... But he spake of the temple of his body. This is exactly what He was talking about in 

You are the Lord's building here on earth. You are the many mansions in the house of God but Jesus was going to the cross to prepare a special place for us in His body so that the Holy Spirit can come and live in us as His temple. 

For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.* When Jesus rose from the dead, He came out with that new body (house) to give to everyone that believes in Him.
