I have something to ask of everyone that reads this.Study your bible and please answer this question.We have been taught all our life that we will all shout in heaven BUT according to the bible that is not entirely true.According to Revelation,God does not wipe the tears out of our eyes till the 21st chapter.The 20th chapter of Revelation deals with the judgements. Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Then if you read further in 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;and there shall be no more death,neither sorrow,nor crying,neither shall there be any more pain,and God himself shall be with them,and be their God. I have looked and studied this many ways and ask for an answer.We know that the 20th chapter states this is the second death and the bible is plain about you knowing people. So i guess it would be this question :as we stand in judgement knowing who our loved ones are do you think we'll cry at the judgement if they are not found and are cast into the lake of fire or what will we do???? If you read the 21st chapter of Revelation and think of a funeral this has the same thing as a funeral:death,sorrow,crying,pain.And if this is right then it would take God to wipe the tears and comfort us for we will also know this is for Eternity.Thanks to everyone who will weigh in on this.
I've always been of the mindset that the tears that will be wiped away will, indeed be due to the loss we will suffer at the Judgements. Our own losses as the saved (our Bema seat...trial by fire) and yes, perhaps tears for those we know who are not written in the book.Beyond that, it's party time for eternity.
