WILL WE RECOGNISE ONE ANOTHER IN HEAVEN?

My one word answer YES!!

“Some have asked whether we shall know one another in heaven? Surely, our knowledge will not be diminished—but increased! The judgment of Luther and Anselm, and many other divines is, that we shall know one another; yes, the saints of all ages, whose faces we never saw! And, when we shall see the saints in glory without their infirmities of pride and passion—it will be a glorious sight.
We see how Peter was transported when he saw but two prophets in the transfiguration; but what a blessed sight will it be when we shall see the whole glorious company of prophets, and martyrs, and holy men and women of God! (Matthew 17:3).
How sweet will the music be, when all shall sing together in concert in the heavenly choir! And though, in this great assembly of saints and angels, “one star may differ from another in glory,” yet no such weed as envy shall ever grow in the paradise of God!
There shall be perfect love, which, as it casts out fear, so also envy. Though one vessel of glory may hold more than another, every vessel will be full.” ~

Thomas Watson, 1669.

  1. Mom and Dad in their last days were looking forward to seeing Jesus face to face and also those loved ones gone on before…They got giddy thinking about it…a little too giddy and I told them so.
