never thought about the idea that our human spirit has already left our body and is in heaven

Actually the human spirit has not left the body if it did you would be dead physically. What has taken place is that your soul is separated (circumcised) from you body, you are united to Christ via the Holy Ghost at this point that you have been separated from your sin nature and given his divine nature this all took place for every beleiver at his new birth (for lack of a better term).

This whole spiritual process supersedes our current 24/7TQ and places the believers soul in an Eternal time measurement (TQ) thought our bodies are still in this current TQ. we have our lives in him in eternity already.

But clearly our spirit is not yet left the body.

Eph 2:6 And hath raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus: - no spirit of any man left the body of any man and is in heaven at the moment one accepted Christ but where he is we are

Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: - this circumcision odes not put a mans spirit in heaven but puts him in Christ where Christ is that is where you are.

Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; - again we are united with him but our spirit has not left our Bodies. if they did we would be dead physically for the spirit of man is his life force (for lack of a better term)
