    In response to the August 15, 2014 Watchtower p. 29, in the “Questions from Readers” about Luke 20: 34-36
    In verse 36, when Jesus Christ said we would be just like the angels, he was saying we will all be equals. We will all be be exactly like Adam and Eve when they were first created. We will all be given a perfect body, as the Apostle says in 1st Corinthians 15:42. Paul was speaking in 3 categories. First, the 144,000 will obviously themselves be spirit creatures just like the angels in heaven;
    Second, the Great Crowd, those who survive the through the Great Tribulation and Armageddon,  however, will be changed (1 Cor. 15:51) and be purified (Rev. 7:14-17), will given incorruptible bodies, and have direct communion with the 144,000, Christ and God. The 144,000 will be directly responsible to instruct and guide the Great Crowd who will turn be responsible to instruct and guide the resurrected.
    Third, the resurrected, likewise with the Great Crowd, will all be given new perfect adult sized bodies but, like children will be devoid of sexual development, and like Adam and Eve, they had no sex drive until they after they had sinned. Like little children they were not not ashamed of being naked and had no thought or desire for sex (Genesis 2:25). 
    Nobody will be resurrected in their former physical condition. There will not be any old people, no babies or children and of course no handicaps. 
    So again, when Jesus said in the Resurrection that there will be no marriage, he is saying that there will be no procreating children anymore for the duration of the thousand years.
    The first of man’s errors will have been will have been solved. No more runaway hormonal sexual appetites. God had his own schedule for Adam and Eve to engage in sexual activity similar to how animals do so by season. Since that schedule varies greatly among animals, then there is no idea what God had in mind for humans, because Adam and Eve sinned and acquired that desire prematurely. Otherwise, there will be no more room on earth for anymore children and no need for adding more people on earth. This will be the Judgement Day for those who are alive and had lived before, not for any new souls. Six thousand years of dead people will resurrected back to life on the same earth. God’s goal to fill the earth (Gen. 1:28) will have been sufficiently satisfied. Humans will not be preoccupied with raising children, and there will be no more need for family, tribal loyalties and dynasties that causes divisions. Cultural barriers will only be a matter of geographic resources and conditions.
    Like Adam and Eve who were themselves like newborn babies in adult sized bodies were given the ability to speak. But babies are unable to speak only because they are not fully developed physically. And at that time we will all be given a pure language like Adam and Eve spoke. We all be able to understand each other, past generations with new generations, all nationalities, and tribes. The effect at Babel will have been reversed (Zephaniah 3:9). 
    With perfect bodies, no one can blame imperfection for their sins. Like Satan, not all humans will be satisfied and happy with paradise. The heart of some may still not be reconciled to God.
    “The Rock, perfect is his activity, For all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulnesse who is never unjust; Righteous and upright is he. They are the ones who have acted corruptly. They are not his children, the defect is their own. They are a crooked and twisted generation!” – Deuteronomy 32:4,5.
    They may not do any harm and ‘keep their nose clean’ (Isaiah 65:25) until the end when Satan and his demons are let loose and finds an empty vessel, cleaned who’s heart is not occupied with the Holy Spirit and the love of Jehovah, and will posses that soul, and many others likewise to do harm to as many people as possible in Satan’s rage of imminent doom. 

    It will be the duty of the Great Crowd to welcome back all the resurrected people, the good and the bad like Noah and Hitler. They will record the biographic data of every individual who is resurrected and reconcile that person to his former family and home. Many of whom will not be readily recognizable in their new perfected bodies. Especially the babies and children who are resurrected in adult bodies. They will have no idea of what anything is about and will need greater assistance. They will also conduct a complete biogeographical census on a regular basis for adjustment of anyone judged before the end of the 1,000 years.
    Yes! It is not necessary to wait till the end of the end of the 1,000 years for someone to be judged to the second death. It will be an ongoing process the moment they are resurrected till the final test when Satan is released from prison. In a sense the Garden of Eden will have started all over again, except will have to work and clean up our own mess to make the earth a paradise. There will be a vast world wide clean-up, demolition, recycling, refining and conservation job ahead for all of us.
