Can People in Heaven See and Hear Us?


Some FAQs came up in our bible study this week, so I thought I would pass this along to you. The topic “can people see and hear us in heaven?” is a popular one.  Below is a pretty good answer to the question, from the org – so I thought I would pass this along to you. From “Can people in heaven look down and see us?”


The conclusion in their article is that, based on scripture, we don’t have a definitive answer to this in terms of an absolute yes or no.  But probably those in heaven are too busy with the peace, joy and happiness promised to all those who believe. If they see things at all on earth, it’s from a perfected point of view. 

Keep in mind that the scripture says that now “we see through a glass darkly, but then we shall see face to face” (1 Cor 13:12) – and things will be much clearer then.  There are a lot of unanswered questions now, so many – but we have more than enough reasons to believe and “run the race of faith” – keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

Here is another take on this question: This one is from “Desiring God”


The bottom line from this commentary is that we should focus on the great, central realities of the New Testament, which are rock solid, absolutely certain, and full of hope for all who trust in Christ. If you think about the great saints in heaven, take heart. If they see you at all, they are cheering you on to endure every hardship by encouraging you to focus on Christ.

May God bless and keep you all.
