Will We Recognize Our Loved Ones in Heaven?

Episode 668 Show Notes 

From the Show

The scriptures say that in the New Creation we will be sitting down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Thank about that; feasting with the patriarchs. If we can recognize them then surely we will recognize our loved ones.

–Adriel Sanchez
