A huge spiritual question that some wrestle with is, “Will we know each other in Heaven?”
There are two answers, but only one can be right for obvious reasons.
Now each answer can create its own additional questions, but additional questions do not change the original question at hand and whether or not we can know its answer according to the scriptures.
I for one believe that the Bible overwhelming teaches that…
…we will know each other in Heaven.
Why’s that? Because I believe that you – and by “you” I mean you – will go to Heaven.
This has been the expectation (a.k.a hope) of God’s people all the way back to patriarchal age of the Bible. Job said:
“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!” (emphasis mine – Job 19:25-27)
Job believed that he would see God himself. And there is no scriptural reason in the Old or New Testament to believe that he was wrong.
If you go to Heaven, and I go to Heaven, and we knew each other here on the Earth, then I think Heaven would be a fine place to reminisce about the desire that we had on Earth to make it where we are.
And by the way, if we didn’t meet here on Earth, I think we will have plenty of time to get to know one another in eternity.
Hope to see you there.
“For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? For you are our glory and joy.” (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20)
