Acts 17:11, 2 Samuel 12:21-23, Matthew 17:4, Matthew 8:11, 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20, 1 Corinthians 13:12-13, Revelation 2:17

One of the piercing questions in the heart of every believer is whether we and our loved ones will recognize each other in Heaven. It is a perturbing question, but we mustn’t allow it to disrupt the joy we have in our salvation and the sure knowledge that regardless of whether we know each other in Heaven, we ourselves will be dwelling forever there in the glorious presence of Jesus our beloved Savior.

Unfortunately, Dr. Strauss’ paper is out of print, but is available as a Microsoft Word document here. Unfortunately, that document is in an older MS-Word format. Furthermore, not everyone has access to MS-Word. I have therefore saved the downloaded document in a more modern version of MS-Word and also saved it as a PDF. Please feel free to download and use either or both of these documents in your own studies, but do please heed and honor its copyright statement.
