Will we see people we miss/love in heaven?

I know this is kind of a silly question but I recently visited someone who I've been missing for quite some time and who was very, very important to me. It got me thinking, when we both die, will we see each other in heaven? Will we see our loved and missed ones in heaven? Or is it just impossible to really know?

    Don't you think you should make the most out of your relationships while you are still alive, and spend as much time as possible with the ones you love while they are alive, just in case there really isn't a heaven or hell? Religious people tell us we are going to regret our ways when we find out we were wrong, but I think the same should be said to them.

    We might see them but we won't know who they are. We won't be exactly the same as we are now. That also helps us live in peace. Imagine seeing someone you hated while you were still on Earth in Heaven. That might cause unhappiness (since we'll still have emotions and free-will) and defeats the purpose of being in Heaven, which is to live in paradise and in harmony with God. You might see your mother, but you won't say, "Hey, that used to be my mom back when I was on Earth". They'll just be another creature in Heaven.

    in Heaven it is impossible to have sadness. Not because you have some special device that distracts you or reprograms you. Its because there is no chance for unhappiness to exist, because all is well and everyone is free and cannot sin. That is why it is paradise, forever.

    So whoever was you knew and liked, there you'll see them again and in fact, everyone else. All will be good, then.

    Many people say that the first thing they want to do when they arrive in heaven is see all their friends and loved ones who have passed on before them. In eternity, there will be plenty of time to see, know, and spend time with our friends and family members. However, that will not be our primary focus in heaven. We will be far more occupied with worshipping God and enjoying the wonders of heaven. Our reunions with loved ones are more likely to be filled with recounting the grace and glory of God in our lives, His wondrous love, and His mighty works. We will rejoice all the more because we can praise and worship the Lord in the company of other believers, especially those we loved on earth.

    What does the Bible say about whether we will be able to recognize people in the afterlife? King Saul recognized Samuel when the witch of Endor summoned Samuel from the realm of the dead (1 Samuel 28:8-17). When David’s infant son died, David declared, “I will go to him, but he will not return to me” (2 Samuel 12:23). David assumed that he would be able to recognize his son in heaven, despite the fact that he died as a baby. In Luke 16:19-31, Abraham, Lazarus, and the rich man were all recognizable after death. At the transfiguration, Moses and Elijah were recognizable (Matthew 17:3-4). In these examples, the Bible does seem to indicate that we will be recognizable after death.

    The Bible declares that when we arrive in heaven, we will “be like him [Jesus]; for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2). Just as our earthly bodies were of the first man Adam, so will our resurrection bodies be just like Christ’s (1 Corinthians 15:47). “And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:49, 53). Many people recognized Jesus after His resurrection (John 20:16, 20; 21:12; 1 Corinthians 15:4-7). If Jesus was recognizable in His glorified body, we also will be recognizable in our glorified bodies. Being able to see our loved ones is a glorious aspect of heaven, but heaven is far more about God, and far less about us. What a pleasure it will be to be reunited with our loved ones and worship God with them for all eternity.

    Source(s): We will be able to see/ recognize our loved ones in heaven, the ones that have given their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation that is.

    When we are is heaven we will see everyone who is a christian, and we will see them as brother or sisters through God. I don't think we will recognize the people we knew on earth, or if we do we will have a whole new slate.

    That depends, are you going to hell or is the person you miss going to hell. If you answered with yes to any of these questions then no you will not see them in heaven.

    Heaven is just a silly story. Come on, actually think about it.

    It's not impossible to know. Scripture says we will see our saved loved ones. It says we will know each other as we were known - that means recognition !

    No. If you miss someone then get in touch. Don't wait until you're both dead to do it
