“Marriage at the Resurrection”
How many times you wondered what heaven will be like?
I don’t know the answer for me, but it has certainly been many times.
Please read the following verses where Jesus gives us a glimpse of heaven.
18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question.
19 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother.
20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children.
21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third.
22 In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too.
23 At the resurrection[c] whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
24 Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?
25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
We might think that heaven will be an extension of our earthly life.
I suppose in a way it is.
However, there will be many differences also.
Some of these differences come to mind, when we are told we will be like the angels.
I don’t know exactly what that means, but I do know angels do the work the Lord God wants them to do.
Heaven is so spectacular, wonderful and beautiful, that we cannot even imagine what it will be like.
This is okay by me.
However, even though there are many human unknowns, I can’t wait to be there.
Come Lord Jesus; take us out of this world and to our real home with You.
