Will We Recognize Each Other In Heaven?

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

Scripture gives no indication that we will not recognize family and friends.  The Apostle Paul anticipated being with the Thessalonians in heaven and he never said he wouldn’t recognize them.  In fact, if we wouldn’t know our loved ones, the comfort of an afterlife reunion taught in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, would be no comfort at all. 

“Since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.  For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.  For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.  Therefore encourage one another with these words.” 

Take heart, heaven is going to be an awesome place for those who believe!!
