Are we going to meet our friends in Heaven?
A: Dear David,
Thanks for watching! The answer is Yes, we will meet our friends in heaven. The Bible tells us that about our loved ones who have died, “We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope… the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). In other words, he was telling us to encourage one another with these words that we will see our friends and loved ones again, whether dead or alive. We will know each other in heaven, and be together there and for eternity!
Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!
Your friend, Pastor Howard
