After God made Adam in his immortal body, He said “It was not good for the man to be alone” (Gen 2:18). Even though in Genesis it says the LORD God walked in the garden in the cool of the day with man, God still felt it was not good for man to be alone. After making every animal under the sun, God finally put man to sleep, took part of his side, and created a female which Adam called “woman”. So part of Adam was now missing and was put into Eve. - Only together would they be complete. We see Gen 2:24 stating: “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh”. They were never married or given in marriage. Why not…? Because they were made for each other.
After the rapture once we are in heaven, like in the Garden, the Lord God will be walking among us and Matt 22:30 says that once he is back in his immortal body, man will “neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven”. Does anyone know how the angels are in heaven? I know I don’t. Do you? Has God changed His mind that even when He is among us, man should not be alone? Can you see where I’m heading?
Many believe there are female angels in heaven as well as male angels, because many people have seen them in visions and dreams. If so, then why did He make female angels? Has God made female angels for the male angels? We know that He’s made females in most animal species on earth, so why not angels. In heaven, like in the Garden, once God makes someone for you, I would think the two are joined forever. What God has joined together, etc…(Mark 10:9).. Is this why there is no marriage in heaven? Because it’s just not needed. If being together, as husband and wife in heaven, is not important to God then why does 1 Corinthians 7:14 say: “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy”.
All these questions arise when thinking about this, and personally, I believe that God made unions between a man and a women will not only be around in heaven, but because of the lack of this corruptible flesh we now carry, the love we have for each other will be a selfless, agape form of love, like we’ve never experienced before.
Well, anyway, we’ll all know soon….very, very soon.
