I anticipate a dip in the River of Life first in order to stand before the Lord in His presence. We may be bringing earthly residue with us from all the evil around us. It's my understanding those that pass over go there first.
However it plays out is fine with me. I know that I know that I know our pets will be there. I presume Kibbles and Bits is from earth but the pets will have more Heavenly food there. But I am no authority to say this absolutly. I am however, content to just fit in with how things are done there.
Time will be experienced differently and that may take some time to get used to. I know we will meet at the Eastern Gate. At the other Rita site we determined we'd find each other by carrying red roses. Hopefully, the Lord was listening and has that all under control. Maybe we'll have a red rose on our gowns someway. Some identifying emblem so we can recognize each other.
Will we sit together with other Rita Now members or be mixed into family groups among each other? However the Lord has planned it, I know we will be content and well- pleased. My only request is the pleasure of coming in the Rapture with all the Saints however He has planned it.
The Banquet table is set. I don't believe there will be a "Rita family sit here sign" There will be individual placards on the tables. I'm sure the angels will help guide us to where we have been placed. We will need to find our name to find our seat.
As to Rita Now parties there will probably be announcements placed in a "Coming Attractions location" where all will see it and be aware of it.
I believe the children will grow up in Heaven. Those who have family there will be with them. Those without families there will need families to live with. I don't think God will make them instant adults. It would rob parents and children of their family time and instruction in ways of the Lord there. I anticipate they will be taught by angels and those qualified in Heaven. A better education then anyone here has ever had. Think of the field trips? Learning truth not man's interpretations of it. It won't be just children going to classes either. We will have our own lessons to learn and some unlearning processes for incorrect knowledge given here on earth.
Teens may have their own mansions if parents aren't there yet. Mid teen to late teens probably. The youngest teens --it could even be a matter of what both parent and child want. But there will be plenty of interaction and visits. Pretty much what each one wants I'd imagine. Some teens haven't known both parents. Broken families may want to have a chance to get to know each other and spend time together. Again, however it happens, we will be content with it. I don't believe binds will be broken but rather cemented closer. We'll come and go as we please whether in the same home or apart. We will always know who we were while on earth to each other. Families are important to God and to us.
