The zipper was developed by a man named Whitcomb Judson, a Chicago mechanical engineer. He presented his prototype at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. He sold a whopping 20.
He went on to create a business – Universal Fastener Company. The company hired a Swedish immigrant named Gideon Sundback who became their head designer. After a number of failed efforts, Sundback created, in 1913, the zipper we know today.
B. F. Goodrich bought “separable fasteners” for his rubber galoshes and christened the fastener a “zipper” because he liked the z-z-zip sound it made.
If your zipper has “YKK” on it, it is one of the 1.5 billion zipper manufactured each year by the Japanese Company Yoshida Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha in their Macon, GA manufacturing plant.
You and I are human zippers. That is, we have an eternal spirit and a physical, temporary body. God designed us that way. He is the one who initially zipped the spirit to the body. Death unzips the two (James 2:26).
The resurrection will rezip the two. But, there will be some difference. It will not be a physical body to which the spirit will be zipped. Some bodies are mutilated. Some have been cremated. Some have been otherwise deformed or disfigured.
But Paul teaches in 1 Corinthians 15:42-49 that the body sown perishable, dishonor, weakness, natural will be raised (rezipped) in a body that is imperishable, in glory, in power, and spiritual
“Believe and see His glory!”
