Clothed, not naked

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. 2 Corinthians 5.1-3

The body is the earthly house, this tent is provisional.
The body you have, no matter how strong or beautiful it is, will end one day. When this happens, and it will happen sooner or later, where will your soul live for all of eternity?

In the lake of fire and brimstone with the devil, the beast, the false prophet, death and hell? No! I don’t think this is what you want.

We have a building from God, a house not made with hands, but eternal, which will be the heavenly habitation for our soul.

However, because everything in life has a condition, the condition to leave this earthly home and live in the heavenly habitation is to not be naked, but clothed.

Only dressed with the Armor of God (Ephesians 6.10), the Holy Spirit, will we have the conditions to remain firm against all the tricks of the devil, and to resist the bad day, and, after overcoming everything, remain unwavering.

It is on the bad day that we groan, endure, suffer afflictions on behalf of our faith. But once dressed, everything passes, everything ends, everything finishes.

But, those who are spiritually naked will fall for the first trap of the devil and not endure the bad day.

If you want your soul to live in the heavenly habitation, when this earthly house is destroyed, then you cannot be naked, but dressed in Armor of God, which will give you the condition to persist and prevail forever.
