We read the response of our Lord Jesus to this very question in Matthew 22.  In this case, the Lord Jesus was being tested by the Sadducees, the next most prominent sect of the Jews after the Pharisees.  These did not believe in the resurrection of the dead, and so they posed this question to see if they might trip Him up:

Matthew 22:23-30 says, “The same day came to Him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.  Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:  Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.  And last of all the woman died also.  Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”

From the Lord’s response, we can understand that the marriage relationship, as we know it here on earth, does not translate to the heavenly realm.  In that blessed scene, those who are His own will have glorified bodies, and these will be spiritual bodies, not fleshly, though I believe we will certainly recognize one another.

So, what will we be like in the resurrection? Our earthly, fleshly bodies are made of earthly materials, which are corruptible; in heaven, our bodies will be made incorruptible. we read in II Corinthians 5: 1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” I Corinthians 15:52-53 tells us, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”

So, in the glory, those who are the Lord’s will not be the same physically—we will not have the same physical needs and desires, because we will have spiritual bodies, not mortal; and yet, we will certainly recognize one another.  I believe this last is demonstrated for us in the portion relating to the Mount of Transfiguration. In Mark 9:4-5 we read, “And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.  And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.” Thus, Peter definitely knew who Moses and Elijah were.  So, I believe that we will recognize one another in heaven. Now, there is a marriage in Heaven that the Scripture does discuss, and that is the “marriage feast of the Lamb, which we read about in revelation 19:6-7, “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” In this portion, I believe we see those who are saved, the church, described as a bride, with the Lord Jesus being the Lamb of God, taking the place of the One to whom we are married.  The relationship of the church will be as a bride to our Lord Jesus, and thus we will be occupied with Him, and not with earthly spouses.

But, will it be sad for us who have loved our spouses so much not to be in the same relationship with them as on earth?  Revelation 21: 4 tells us, “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: for the former things are passed away.” Then, in Revelation 22: 3-4, we are told what we will be occupied with in that scene, all of us who have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, “And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.”  (378.1)  (SF)
