John UK wrote: If you are referring to the quickening of regeneration, then it is spiritual not physical
With reference to Romans 8:11 "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."
John Calvin writes.... "By mortal bodies he understands all those things which still remain in us, that are subject to death; for his usual practice is to give this name to the grosser part of us. We hence conclude, that he speaks not of the last resurrection, which shall be in a moment, but of the continued working of the Spirit, by which he gradually mortifies the relics of the flesh and renews in us a celestial life."
Now c'mon John declare your 'TRUE' allegiance to Hyper-Wesleyan theory once and for all.
The other folks commenting have long since declared they are not Biblical Reformed!! And as C.H.Spurgeon stated Calvinism IS the Gospel.
Incidentally to see Romans 8:11 as future in reference to "glorious body" in heaven is erroneous exegesis.
Historic Reformed ie Calvinist doctrine remains the best and most accurate Biblical interpretation of Scripture. Praise be to God.

Doris, Lurker and Dopey are incorrect.
This verse has nothing to do with the "quickening" process which is related to Regeneration whilst on earth.
Phil 3:20-21 refers to a quote "glorious body" which is obtained when we go to heaven and eternal life we receive a glorious body like Christ's. - NOT the "quickening" process which is to go from "dead in sin" to "Life in Christ" whilst down here on earth.
We don't get "quickened" in heaven since (a) we are not dead in sin there and (b) we receive the Christ-like glorious body for eternal life.
