Folks, you’ll see quickly that much of what I say
here is not Gospel…not in the Bible. But I’ve asked myself that question when I see a family having to bury
a child. It’s now in Heaven, but still, if my heart goes out to anyone, it‘s to them.
You’re familiar with the Bible’s word,
"We will know as we are known;" I’ve used that many times, in talking to you. My thinking now…I expect
even babies to be there, along with children of every age. I believe a soul is born at the moment of conception, and so
God has to come into the picture of even the unnamed, in Heaven.
My thinking is that He has a way for parents to recognize their child that‘s
been lost prematurely, for any reason. The same for persons of all ages. For example, if I knew a teenager, or as an adult
here on earth, that’s the way I’ll recognize him.
It even comes to my mind that certain ones might be as angels, because my wife had a friend
she still believes was an angel. And if you’ve ever seen my Conquest article about "Pets in Heaven," I’m
not looney; I’m just listening to my imagination at work.
Incidentally, if you’d like to see that "Pets" article, scroll down in my website
articles from past weeks, and you’ll find it. A single click will bring it up. It will show you there’s Bible
that there will be animals in Heaven, eating grasses instead of each other (try Isaiah 11:6-8). The lion will lay down with
What an incentive
for family members to want to make Heaven! To think that we’ll see children, parents, grandparents…everyone
who lived, or was conceived here on earth will be there. And why not include another wonder of Heaven…the handicapped,
the disabled and the mentally ill…every person will be entirely whole, in their new bodies! And I’m not dreaming
this; read Thessalonians 4:17, for starters.
Heaven is a goal that can’t be imagined. It will be worth any bother or distress we can endure, to make it. If you
aren’t ready, please do it for yourself and your loved ones. A never-ending gift.
