Will I be with my wonderful husband in heaven as his wife if I stay faithful until Jesus comes? I long to continue our marriage throughout eternity. God blessed me with a wonderful Christian husband and father to our children, I miss him more than words can describe.
It would seem from Scriptural evidence that we might not be married any longer when Jesus comes back.
Matt 22:30 “At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” NIV
It will always be true though that because couples are married while living on this planet, they will still know each other and enjoy each other and remember all our good times on earth. That will never be taken away from us.
Don’t think that this is a kind of deprivation. It may hard to conceive now how we could live happily ever after, if we are not married to our spouse in heaven. But then, again can we even imagine a little glimpse of what heaven really will be like? It is impossible. Only when we are in the company of angels and of Jesus Himself will we realize what it truly means. God has guaranteed us Rev 21:3-4 “They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” NIV In one word, we will know true happiness and we will not experience any kind of deprivation.
Would you like to experience true happiness? Do you know Jesus as your personal Saviour? It isn’t too late yet. Come to Him now by accepting the altar’s call at http://www.answers2prayer.org/saviours_call.html
Matthew 22:30 says: “In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage.”
We will be married in heaven, but to Christ! There will only be ONE marriage, and we will ALL be HIS bride.
One day all heaven will attend the ultimate wedding, and we will be his bride (Read Rev. 19:7-9).
MAY ALL BE BLESSED.
