26MAY2019 | Revelation Five - Family Reunion? Or Something Else?
One of the most common beliefs amongst men and women worldwide is a belief that going to heaven is all about the idea of reconnecting with friends and family - "I just can't wait to get to heaven so I can see ___________" again.
Make no mistake about it; the hope all faithful should have is that their loved ones have developed faith in Christ to the extent that, paraphrasing the words of the Apostle Paul, "Death has no victory, death has no sting."
However, we discover in some of the final words recorded in Revelation that hoping for heaven just to see loved ones again is at best incomplete, and pretty much not rooted in scripture.
