Great question, Diane!

Job anticipated being in the very presence of God after his death when he stated "in my flesh I shall see God" (Job 19:25-27).

Amazing, isn't it, that in his very flesh, he would see God? This is a most sublime expression of Job’s faith in a literal, physical resurrection (see also Dan. 12:2; Luke 24:39; John 5:28-29; Acts 2:31-32). Jesus explained in John 5:28-29 that ALL MEN (including Old Testament saints) WILL BE RESURRECTED AND JUDGED--

28 "Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and will come out — the ones who have done what is good to the resurrection resulting in life, and the ones who have done what is evil to the resurrection resulting in condemnation."
