    We will drink of the fruit of the vine, the fresh juice of the pure grape:

    Mat_26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

    Mar_14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.​

    Yea that’s would I would envision heaven to be like.

    For the 4th, the wife’s making bacon wrapped filet with mashed potatoes, fresh steamed broccoli (from the garden), cole slaw and cherry pie. That’s how I’d like to dine in heaven!

    You actually think death will be existent in Heaven and in the New Heaven/Earth?

    Interesting question. What are your scriptural thoughts on the subject?

    Here are mine. The Bible says that we shall be as the angels (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25), and they eat food (Genesis 18:5-8). The resurrected persons shall have glorified bodies of flesh and bone, even as Jesus has (Luke 24:39), and He still eats (Luke 24:42, etc), and so shall we in the eternal Kingdom (Luke 12:37; Revelation 2:7, etc). God created the digestive system of His creatures, and it was existent in the earth without sin (Genesis 1-3). Excreta (dirt, Judges 3:22) is not sin. It is natural, even dirt/dust.

    So, if we did, would it be an issue?

    I remember that too, I think it’s in Acts 31.

    peace to you

    The assumption in the op is that heaven is a reference to the abode of God. Its not. Need to be more careful in the understanding of individual words.

    I have a friend that is sure there will be bacon trees on the New Earth.

    Personally I believe some may have a faulty view of what biblical death really means.

    Porterhouse steak and the finest aged wines (not necessarily grape juice)

    On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
    a feast of rich food for all peoples,
    a banquet of aged wine—
    the best of meats and the finest of wines. Isaiah 25:6

    Dirt would simply be placed back into the dirt where it came from. Worms eat dirt, process dirt, and excrete dirt.

    In the third Heaven, where God dwells, are fields, a garden, rivers, trees, fruit and dirt; in other words, the unfallen world where God Himself dwells. See Revelation, Ezekiel, etc.

    The verse:

    Isa 25:6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.​

    Isaiah 25 Is speaking about the destruction of Satan's kingdom (Babylon the Great), and the Advents of Jesus Christ and the great resurrections and victory over the grave, and in this Mountain (New Jerusalem/Kingdom) [context]:

    Isaiah 25:1 O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
    Isaiah 25:2 For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
    Isaiah 25:3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.
    Isaiah 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
    Isaiah 25:5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
    Isaiah 25:6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.​

    The "feast of fat things", and "a feast of wines on the lees", "of fat things full of marrow", "of wines on the lees well refined", are actually paralleled:

    [1A] "feast of fat things"

    [2A] "a feast of wines on the lees"​

    [1B] "of fat things full of marrow"

    [2B] "of wines on the lees well refined"​

    It is not speaking about dead animal flesh, but of the richness of the wedding feast that the LORD has prepared for those that love him. The "wines" "on the lees", means that which was "settled" or "preserved" [H8105, "שׁמנים", "sh'märiym"], and "well refined", is the "pure" Juice of the grape, again, without any trace of sin and corruption or intoxication, the word means, "purified" [H2212; "מזקקים׃", "m'zuQäqiym"], see Psalms 12:6. This has nothing to do with alcohol.

    Psalms 36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

    Psalms 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:​

    For just as at the wedding of Cana, God gifts the best last:

    John 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.​

    Again, not alcohol. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14). Isaiah is using symbolic language to describe the richness and purity of the reward of Heaven and of things to come, the New Heaven and New Earth.

    Matthew 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

    Matthew 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

    Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

    Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.​

    As it is written:

    Luke 19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

    Isaiah 13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

    Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

    Daniel 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

    Isaiah 62:3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

    Isaiah 62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

    Isaiah 62:5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.​

    See the Holy Mountain:

    Isaiah 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

    Isaiah 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

    Isaiah 57:13 When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;

    Isaiah 65:11 But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.

    Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

    Isaiah 66:20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.​

    I pray you are not presenting this persons ideology as fact, when the Bible is against such position.

    Yes, you may indeed "believe" such an thing, but is that belief true, is another question entirely, and ought be tested by the scripture itself, as it is written; Isaiah 8:20.

    Heaven is indeed the "abode of God" (sic):

    2Co 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
    2Co 12:3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
    2Co 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

    Rev_2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

    Rev_22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    Rev_22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.​

    You are still responsible for what was shared, being written in Heaven that it was shown to you, and you refused. You will face this again, where then, you cannot turn away from it.
