Finally, companionship. Jesus’ teachings were based on loving one another, being kind to one another, looking out for one another. That leads us to conclude that we will continue to have affectionate relationships with one another. And since we are told that God is not partial and that “there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female” (Galatians 3:28), we suspect that applies to other types of beings as well. In other words, will we develop close and endearing friendships with other types of beings? We think so.
We considered in the prior article that we would need to learn the languages of the heavens. Maybe we will be given a personal guide and interpreter who will accompany us on our journeys as we become familiar with our new home. If so, we suspect that we will be spending a lot of time with our new guides. Some of these guides might be advanced humans, creatures of angelic origin, or entities created for the sole purpose of amusing and accompanying us so as to facilitate our advancement.
When we are finally perfected, we believe we will have not only eliminated all animalistic tendencies, but we will have experienced the height of all possible human joys and all positive mortal sensations. We believe our perfecting will be a masterful completion such that we have no longings for things of the past. We will be poised and ready for our final translation of “glory” to the very presence of the Father.
These are just some of the things we have thought about. Maybe you have thought about other things. Since “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26), we doubt that anyone could come up with ideas that are not in some way possible, as long as those ideas are in harmony with the nature of the Father:
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
– Philippians 4:8
Rejoice in your hope!
