Nagging Question to Pretribbers

When you die, if you have a personal relationship with Christ, your spiritual body goes to heaven.  Paul tells us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord… 2 Cor. 5:8.  So since Jesus informed His disciples that He goes to heaven to prepare a place for them, there has been myriads of believers who have died and gone on before.  They are indeed with Christ, living the glorified life in heaven.  Some have been there for thousands of years (earth time).  Yet at the rapture their Earthly corrupted rotted bodies will be raised incorruptible… 1 Cor. 15:51-54.   So the BIG question is:  Why all of a sudden do they need an Earth suit that cannot rot?  Unless, of course, they are coming to live on Earth with Christ for 1000 years.  Paul tells us that the dead get incorruptible bodies, and that the raptured get immortal bodies.  This is the same type of body that Adam and Eve had prior to the fall.  The Scripture tells us that, “By one man’s sin death entered into the World…”  Prior to that Adam and Eve had immortal bodies.  By sinning they put on mortality.  So that fact is that the raptured, and the dead in Christ are putting on Earth suits suitable for living on Earth during the millennium, not for returning to heaven as many suppose.
