Series: The Bible Doesn’t Say That
Title: Another Angel Gets Their Wings
Scripture: Genesis 1-3, Hebrews 12:1-2
Big Idea: There’s nowhere in the Bible that talks about us getting our wings when we die. Death is mysterious, so people tend to fill in the blanks between what we know and what we don’t, and they start to believe things that aren’t true but make them comfortable. We don’t know for sure that our loved ones aren’t looking down on us from heaven, but we do know that heaven is a place filled with the joy of God, and there’s no room for pain because God has vanquished it. We know that we get to spend time in the presence of God when we die, and we know that this world is full of pain. Maybe we do have loved ones looking down on us, but I hope not. I’d rather have them staring at Jesus, worshiping him, and celebrating their time with him until we get there too.
