The only scripture I can think of that bears any relevance to this question at all is the parable of Lazarus and the Rich man, which seems to suggest that John will have memory of Anna. But as this was not the point of the story, I don't know how much one can conclude that this is factual, as contrasted with merely part of a narrative Jesus used to teach ...

) There are options Went to heaven Stayed on earth Went to heaven Elijah went from earth to the Heaven where God is, just like it is inferred for Enoch in Gen 5:23, i.e. they "died" (in like a very weak sense of the word) or went to heaven alive. Some believe that Elijah was later reincarnated as John the baptist Matthew 11:13-14, which he also denied ...

You assume the apparent truism, that God can do anything, which is a logical fallacy. If God can do anything, then he can do the impossible, therefore nothing is impossible. Yet this would leave us with an absurd world. God could cease to exist, and yet also exist. He could violate the law of non-contradiction, he could make a rock so big he couldn't lift ...

This appears to be an issue arising from primarily JWitnesses study, or perhaps some other sect. JW try to assert that no one went to heaven before Jesus. See article here: link. The JW case is non-existent. There was a Jehoram of Israel and a Jehoram of Judah. We read from the article: There is no indication that Elijah went up to heaven before he ...

The Bible often uses the term "heaven" to indicate the sky overhead where rain and snow originate: also the realm of the sun, moon and stars. King Jehoram was in the second year of his reign (2 Kings 1:17) when the Fiery Chariot appeared overhead to take Elijah heavenwards. It is surprising that the sons of the prophets knew ahead of time when Elijah was to ...

Heaven can mean several things: The abode of God/angels/righteous The firmament (sky) State of utmost happiness These are related concepts, and even in ancient languages, these meanings are conflated. When heaven and hell are used together, #1 or #3 make the most sense. When heaven and earth are used together, #2 probably makes the most sense. So ...

Yes he did. Revelation and an epistle by Peter confirm this: Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the ...

The gospels do not specifically address the question, but the book of Hebrews does. It is appointed for men to die once--not many times. After that is the judgment--not one of many judgments--the judgment. And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of ...

Jesus says that no one will enter into a marriage in heaven, I do NOT think he meant that there will not be a state of being married in heaven. To be like the angels may in some degree mean eternal not changing, Perhaps to be outside time as we know it. (This is a guess as Jesus hasn't said a lot about heaven). To be like angles can NOT mean: To be in some ...

Something else worth considering is the intent of Heaven and Earth and then the establishment of the "New Heavens and new Earth" (Rev 21:1). If God's intention is to restore original creation without self-induced fault in the final move of God we are anticipating according to The Bible then what we see in The Garden is Man needing Woman. If that is the ...
