Will We Know Each Other in Heaven?
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12
I’ve been asked, “Will we know one another in Heaven?” Of course we will. Someone asked Charles Haddon Spurgeon this question, and his answer was classic: “We know each other here on earth. Will we be bigger fools in Heaven than we are here on earth?”
I thought about the picture we have of our little baby Phillip, who we lost when he was just a baby on Mother’s Day. I thought of that passage of Scripture where King David’s little baby died and went to Heaven. David said, “I shall go to him. He shall not return to me.’” I will go to him.
When the apostle Paul spoke about the second coming of Jesus Christ, he told the church at Thessalonica, “You can look forward to the second coming of Jesus and our being gathered not only to meet the Lord, but to meet one another.”
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
Again he told them, “…that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him” (1 Thessalonians 5:15). We’ll be caught up together, then be together.
When the Old Testament patriarchs died, the Bible says they went to be with their people. “Get thee up into the mountain and die in the mountain and be gathered unto thy people” (Deuteronomy 32:50).
