Will We Remember This life in Heaven?

by Dr. D ~

Q: I have been told when you go to Heaven you will know nothing of your life on Earth, but can not find this anywhere. Is this true and if so where can I find it?

A: The scripture that you are probably referring to is Isaiah 25:8:

He will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove the disgrace of his people
from all the earth.
The LORD has spoken.

The message of Isaiah 25:8 is also found in Revelation 21:4:

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

Some Bible teachers have inferred from these scriptures that believers will no longer remember the sadness, sickness, pain, or death that they experienced in this life. Some believe that the reference to the ‘disgrace’ or reproach of God’s people being ‘removed’ means that all the mistakes and sins made in this life will be blotted out and remembered no more in Heaven.

There is no scripture which teaches that we will no longer remember our life on earth. I believe that the scriptures are teaching that we will be changed and that our understanding and feelings about our earthly life will also be changed. Memories which cause us to experience pain, sorrow, and remorse will no longer affect us. The sting and stigma of all our pain, sorrow, sickness, mistakes, and sin will no longer touch us in a negative way in the life to come. *Top

    Imagine reading an entire book. Up to the last page, you’re wondering “how will this all be made right in the end?”
    Then imagine reading the book again. Up to the last page you think “I see it now, of course that had to happen! How glorious!”
    Not that we will re-live our lives, but when we look back at them from Earth-That-Will-Be we will be able to see how everything came together for God’s glory.
    I think forgetting it all would take away from that glory.

    Isaiah 65:17 NAS
    “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth ; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.
