    When we all get to heaven.

    Just curious; as people don’t die at same age, I wonder how those Christians and even OT believers who died at very old age look like. Obviously, it would not be fair for them to stay in heaven and later live at the New Jerusalem having that aged and elderly looks; same thing for those who died at very young age, say 4 years old.

    At 40, and with waistline 32, I’d love to have my looks up there (joke).

    I know there are questions which could only be answered once we are with the Lord; but what do you think?

    God bless.

    I'm not really sure if the bible tells us anything. But I think we will have uncorrupted bodies. No signs of the tolls illnesses or age.
    But thats just my opinion.

    My guess would be “mature” for we will be as He, which was about 33 in earth age. Of course our new Spiritual bodies will be eternally youthful. Scripture makes no reference of angels (I believe we will be) other than “youthful”. I’m sure the two angels at Lot’s house were what we would call in their “prime”, for those guys in Sodom really wanted their bodies. If angels had been women, I’m sure the gals of that City would have been after them. We see in Mark 16:5 a “young” angel.

    About twice your age, waist 38, and still going strong. You've got lots of miles left with clean living and perhaps a little wine for your stomach and heart's sake.

    I think the Bible is silent about what we will look like. As itutut said, we will be like Him, but that, too, doesn't provide any conclusions for us now.

    I think that in heaven we will be recognized no matter when a person knew us. The lady that kept me in the nursery of First Baptist Church, Weatherford, Ok will recognize me. The person who cares for me at some future Full Time Nursing Home will know me. Those who are in my adult men's Sunday School class will recognize me. My Sunday School teacher, Red, who fixed cars at the Texaco station, who came to visit me when I was a Junior in High School after I had my tonsils removed will know me.
