Will We Know People in Heaven

Many people wonder if we will recognize our friends and family when we get to heaven.  We will not only recognize our loved ones and friends, but we will know everyone in heaven. We will enjoy fellowship with people from all walks of life and from the time of Adam to the present time. Can you imagine meeting the saints of the Old and New Testament or of the generations before us?

 At the mount of transfiguration, Peter and John recognized Elijah and Moses even though they had never seen them before and they were separated by hundreds of years; (Luke 9:30-32). This is how it will be in heaven. We will recognize everyone else and will feel as one with them.

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)

We will leave our sinful nature behind, and we will instead be filled with the spirit of God. Therefore we will love each other as God intended us to. We will be like one big family in heaven. Parents, Grandparents, children, and babies will be reunited and will all recognize each other. Like I said before it will be a family reunion like no other.
