Will those who are saved ever see those who are not saved after we die?

I think about this every Christmas, my Father was my only true support in my life. I have wondered if I’ve ever see him in heaven. So I did a little research in the Bible this is what I found out. Before my father got sick. He would tell me “I know I’m not going hell, but maybe I’ll make it to purgatory.” In Catholic religion means the process, or temporary punishment in which, according to Catholic belief, the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for heaven.

I think we need to understand what hell is. Some people do not understand heck. It’s common to hear some people say they are not going to heaven, but they are looking forward to seeing all their friends in hell.

Judgement In The After Life

Jesus and the apostles paint hell as a place of misery and darkness. It will not be a social time. It is not a place to play, party, and watch movies with your friends. Here is the Bible’s picture of hell.

Hell will not be a place where it’s residents will know each other and visit one another. It will be a dark place burning with the heat of fire. So it’s not surprising there will be pain.

See Our Friends?

Scripture teaches that not only will Christians see others in heaven but others will know who they are. Scripture seems to imply that we will not know those who are in hell or in the lake of fire, because there will be no suffering in heaven, Heaven will be a wonderful place.

He shall wipe away every tear from our eyes; and there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away. And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.’ And He said; “ write, for these words are faithful and true,” And He said to me, “It is done, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.

Revelation 21:4-6

Since there is no suffering in heaven, Christians will not see non- Christians who are suffering in the eternal Lake of Fire. Christians will see other Christians. It will be wonderful. But the best part will be to spend eternity with God. Christians are going to have a party with God.
