A Glimpse of Heaven

Looking up Snow Lakes Trail into the Enchantments

At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like angels in heaven. Matt. 22:30

This verse gives us a little peak into life after death. It is not meant to be a complete picture of heaven, just a glimpse. For someone who has lost a family member it can be very reassuring. When I think of my parents, to know they are “like angels” helps me deal with the loss. I look forward to the day when I can join them. Some people will be like the Sadducees (a Jewish sect that did not believe in the resurrection) calling Jesus’ statement “hogwash.” Reading in Matthew 22 Jesus’ responds to the scoffers: “you are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.” No doubt my understanding of heaven is incomplete and sorely lacking, but I do know that Jesus loves my parents, and His power goes way beyond my understanding. Therefore, if I am mistaken about what the phrase, “they will be like angels,” means. I error on the side of being too shallow and meagerly.

  1. This is a timely and lovely post. It reassures me that my recently deceased husband is in a better place. Thank you for your post, this one and the past ones, as they provided truth and comfort to me thoughout Brad’s difficult fight with cancer.


  2. I love your Scriptures and your comments. Indeed, it does make heaven look pretty bright and something to look forward to. We just watched Pastor John Heagee preach on the three heavens. I could listen and look at pictures all day, but sorry I don’t comment much…only in my head and heart. You are so appreciated. By the way, last Thursday we woke up and started thinking about the teaching that night and thought Thursday was Wednesday. We honestly had looked forwarded to going…next month!! Please remind us.
