    Does the Bible clearly say anywhere that you will see your loved ones again?

    And I realize that the one left behind and the one that went on to heaven needs to be a child of God.

  • Seeing Saved Loved Ones Who Have Gone to Heaven - In Reply on John 16 - 2 years ago
    Isaiah 65:17 says, "For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind." Some interpret Isaiah 65:17 as saying that we will have no memory of our earthly lives in heaven.

    HOWEVER, one verse earlier in Isaiah 65:16, the Bible says, "For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes."

    It is likely only our "past troubles" will be forgotten, not all of our memories. Our memories will eventually be cleansed, redeemed, healed, and restored, not erased. There is no reason why we could not possess many memories from our earthly lives. The memories that will be cleansed are the ones that involve sin, pain, and sadness. Revelation 21:4 declares, "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."

    Many people die on the operating table and are resuscitated, and report seeing Jesus or long dead relatives, friends, pets.
