Do you think perhaps there is no sense of passage of time after death and that after we die, the intermediate state you speak of would pass in a millisecond, and then we are resurrected? It would be sort of like a seamless quick passage to the New Earth. Otherwise, would we be conscious of say, 200, years passing in the present Heaven before the bodily resurrection?
Randy Alcorn was interviewed on various topics such as trusting God, Christian bucket lists, Heaven and more. In this audio clip, he talks about how he and his wife Nanci trusted God when they were going through a difficult time.
Invest in Eternity
If you’ve found our resources to be helpful, we invite you to consider making a one-time or recurring donation. It’s the generous support of our ministry partners that enables us to continue our eternity-shaping work.
However, we’re here to serve everyone without cost, so please don’t feel obligated to give to us. Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8). It’s our privilege and joy to share freely what God has so graciously given us.
