“The Resurrected Life?”
Many humans wonder what heaven will be like. Well until we get there, we will not know for sure. But Jesus gives us some hints, especially about marriage in heaven
You are invited to read the following Scripture passage.
27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.
28 “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 have children for his brother.
29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless.
30 The second 31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children.
32 Finally, the woman died too. 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
34 Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.
35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage,
36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children since they are children of the resurrection.
37 But in the account of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’
38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”
39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, “Well said, teacher!”
40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
So the religious leaders find out something about heaven while trying to trick Jesus. There will not be, marriage as we know it in heaven. We will all be considered Jesus bride because we are part of the body of Christ.
I think we will all be so enamored by the Lord God that we will be paying attention to Him. In Heaven, the Lord God will finally get the glory, honor, and praise He deserves. How does that sound to you all?
