General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 

1 Corinthians 13:12

One question we ask about the afterlife is, “Will we recognize each other in Heaven?” The simple answer is this: Do we recognize each other on earth? Generally we do. We will in Heaven, too, but even more so. All the clouding and damaging effects of sin will be removed.

The Bible says, “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known” (1 Corinthians 13:12 NKJV). I don’t think this means that God will take everything He knows and put it into our brains the moment we enter eternity. Otherwise we would all look like bobbleheads, walking around with massive heads and little bodies.

What the Scriptures seem to be saying is that in eternity the Lord will, over time, unveil more and more great truths to us. Our knowledge will expand as we spend time in His presence, worshipping Him.

We also will be reunited with those who have gone before us who trusted in Jesus. If you have loved ones who have died and they believed in Jesus, then you will see them again. Heaven will be a family reunion without the weirdness. All the sin will be gone. All the selfishness will be gone.

You see, Heaven is the earthly life of the believer, glorified and perfected. When we pass to the other side, our minds and our memories will be clearer than they ever have been before. That is great to know, because we forget things. Our memories are not as sharp as they once were, perhaps. But all that is going to change. We will know things that we don’t know now. And we will see things with a perspective that we don’t have now.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.

No one likes ads, but very few people will donate, hence the reason most of us have ads.

Besides donating and clicking on ads, you can make a purchase from our store and buy my book.
