Questions of an 11-year-old-girl

Lately, a young girl that I pick up for church has asked me some questions, which also stemmed some of my own. I wanted to share some of them with you, in hopes that they may promote you to really ponder the things of God. Most, if not all, of these questions probably will not be answered until heaven. They are not listed in any specific order.

1. Will it physically hurt when we are raptured? (I’d have to say no)

2. Will we remember our earthly lives when we get to heaven?

3. What will our new bodies look like? Will we have 5 fingers and 5 toes?

4. Will we sleep in heaven?

5. Will we be able to fly in heaven?

6. Was Pilate ever saved after Jesus’ death?

7. Were any of the Jews that killed Jesus saved before they died?

8. Do we get our own mansions or do we share with others?

9. Will we be able to do all the things we couldn’t on earth in heaven (i.e. I may be able to run really fast without losing my breath at all)?

10. Will we be able to hug on Jesus all the time? (I hope so!)

11. What kinds of clothes will we wear? Will we wear clothes?

12. Will we know everyone by name in heaven even if we never met them here?

13. What will God look like?

14. Will we all be adults?

15. Will we all be children?

16. Will we be the same age in heaven forever that we are when we go? Is age relevant?

17. Will there be cats and dogs in heaven?

18. Will we eat in heaven?

19. What will the temperature be in heaven?

20. What is perfect truly like?

21. Will we have the answers to why things happened here in heaven?

22. Will the purpose of our trials make sense to us then?

23. Will we understand how we effected others?

24. Will Jesus spend a lot of one-on-one time with each of us?

25. Will we know the songs that the angels sing inherently?


These are just a few of MANY questions that can be pondered. How about you? Feel free to list any questions you may wonder about.

    Ehh… here’s some of my answers (or opinions, or thoughts, whatever)…

    1. I don’t think so.
    2. I’m thinking yes – seeing as we’ll be judged on them by the Lord.
    3. I’m really hoping for 10 fingers and 10 toes. 5 might be a little weird.
    4. Probably not – seeing as sleep is a result of fatigue, and we’ll not “suffer” from anything or know any weaknesses in Heaven.
    5. I’m really hoping so.
    6. yeah, I don’t know…
    7. I’d have to say probably, but I don’t know for sure…
    8. Actually, I find this to be an interesting question, and I’ve thought on this alot before. More thoughts to come with this one later…
    9. I’m gonna go with a yes. Again, shortness of breath is a weakness (and sometimes quite painful) – there will be no weaknesses or pain in Heaven.
    10. I think we’ll be too busy worshipping Him to be able to hug on Him ALL the time… but I’m sure He’ll let us squeeze in a few now and then throughout eternity. :]
    11. cloud-age. ha. :]
    12. I’m going with yes on this with.
    13. No eye hath seen, or ear hath heard…
    14. good question…
    15. also a good question…
    16. I don’t think we’ll “age” physically, if that’s what she’s asking.
    17. I’m hoping for dogs. If there are cats, I will personally find the eject button in Heaven and kick all the hairballs out. (in perfect, Christian love, of course)
    18. We’ll eat at least one meal – the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Thank God.
    19. It will be perfect (no pun intended).
    20. Read Revelation 21 and 22 to get just a tiny glimpse of this answer. We’ll never truly know completely until we get there though.
    21. I think the Lord will show us the reasons, even though we still may not understand the “answers.”
    22. Absolutely. And, oh, how I’m waiting for that day.
    23. I believe we will. Again, I believe this will be revealed when the Lord judges our works.
    24. I do hope so; but then again, I think we’ll all be too busy worshipping Him to really “have time” for one-on-one time.
    25. I think we’ll be singing new songs — songs holy angels cannot sing. They never tasted mercy. They never knew grace. But we, those bought by the precious blood of the Lamb, will be singing the songs of redemption… What a day that will be.

    • Thanks for the comments, though not happy you will eject the kitties. I happen to think some cats (such as my Tigger) are wonderful. lol

      See, I think it is beyond our comprehension in our human minds, but I think we will have one-on-one time while worshipping! I also believe we will get to hug him a lot while worshipping too. I am not sure how that will work, but I believe it will. I believe He can have private conversations with us simultaneously (have you read the Left Behind books? I love how he described it in Glorious Appearing – book 12). I think we will experience a personal, private yet open and public relationship in heaven. : )

      I meant 10 fingers and toes, oops!
