    This is a hard teaching for me. If I take it at face value, it seems that people will not be husband and wife in heaven, that we will be like the angels, who don’t procreate, and who aren’t in relationships, and that we will all exist as children of God. This only makes sense since God is our father & Messiah is our brother, and we are “the sons of God” through the Messiah.

    What are your thoughts?

    So what do you think? Is he saying that the concept of husband and wives don’t exist in the resurrection? It seems to me that he is, but I am open to others interpretation. I would love to know what @gadar perets thinks regarding this subject and Messiah’s response

    What will the relationship be like between former husbands and wives?

    I say it’s hard because for me, I don’t fully understand, but it’s something I accept, and want to understand better...

    When you die you will see how Jesus is your best friend and will talk to you and laugh with you and have many fun real adventures with you, you will not have time for a wife or children in heaven nor will you want them.

    They will just be brothers and sisters.

    What would the children of those humans now in heaven be, they would not be Born Again.
    Would they be a race unto themselves, only Spiritual beings, but not Angels?

    Nah we don't need marriage, we Got Jesus.:clap:

    heaven is heaven because we are married to God. I think creature-procreation is done away with, which is what those laws were about. what marriage is to an earthly person and what it is to a heavenly one are very different things. I doubt that many understand angels very well.

    John 3:12 (ESV2011)
    If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

    So married life is that good?
    I was thinking it was more of a challenge and
    opportunity for personal growth. Less than perfect.

    We have sex because we die. If you no longer die there will be no urge whatsoever for sex.

    But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels.
