My dear friend, thank you so much for this question.  Yes, in fact, I believe that we will remember all that we did on the earth; however, once in the glory, it will be a knowledge enhanced by a clear vision of our Lord Jesus and all He has done for us, and it will be joyful and without pain and sadness. I will do my best to show you in the Scriptures what I mean.

First of all, will we remember people we knew on the earth?  I believe we see an example that we will in fact know each other when we get to glory as we see from the accounts of the Mount of Transfiguration.  We read in Mark 9:2-8 about a time when the Lord Jesus took Peter, James and John upon a high mount, and there He was transfigured before them.  This glory they witnessed was the glory of the Son of Man on this earth, the glory which He will have when he returns in power in His Kingdom.  In verses 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”.  In these verses, it is clear that Moses and Elijah were recognizable by all.  We see the same in the accounts in Matthew 17-1-8, and also in Luke 9. In the account in Luke 9, we read what the Lord Jesus spoke with these men of old about—the Lord Jesus  discussed about his death which He would accomplish for sinners: “And, behold, there talked with Him two men, which were Moses and Elias: Who appeared in glory, and spake of His decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem.”  So we see clearly in these accounts that even though Moses and Elijah were long departed from the earth, they had clear recollection of the things they knew from the Holy Spirit while on the earth, and the Lord Jesus discussed these things with these men, now appearing in the glory of the mountain top.

Now, what about what we learned of the Lord and His plan for His children through the Bible while we are on this earth? In 1 Corinthians 13:12, we read, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”   I believe that what the Spirit of God is telling us in this verse is that while we are here on this earth, our knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures is incomplete and obscured, just like looking at our image in a dirty looking glass. But in heaven, we’ll see the whole picture–our understanding and knowledge will be much fuller and more clear, because there will not be the limitations of the flesh of this fallen world to obscure our clear vision once we are with the Lord. We will be able to see clearly our Lord Jesus and understand more completely and intimately all that He has done for us at Calvary.

Now, what about Judgement?  For those who are believers on the Lord Jesus Christ, there is no fear of judgement for our sins, since the Lord Jesus has redeemed us at Calvary’s cross by purchasing our pardon through the shedding of His blood. And yet, a day will come for believers when they will appear before the Lord Jesus, and our actions in life will be recalled.  The Lord Jesus will not be condemning us on that day, those who have trusted in Him; but all of our actions and motives will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will reward all that was of Him in our lives. We read about this in II Corinthians 5:8-10, “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”  So, we will remember all on that day. For that which was done in our lives which was of the Lord, there will be reward; there will be loss for that which was not of the Lord, and yet, we are saved and will forever be with the Lord where He is.  And, of heaven, we read that there will be no sickness, sin, or sadness there as we read in Revelation 21: 4, “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.” So, we will remember, but the memory will not result in pain; we will be rejoicing over our Lord Jesus and will see Him face to face (Revelation 22:4).

Finally, for the ungodly, they too will be put in remembrance of all, and it will not be a pleasant day.  We read about the judgement for sinners, those who have not received Christ as their Savior. All of their deeds and motives will be reviewed with them as we read in Revelation 20:12, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works”.

My dear friend, I hope this has been helpful to you, and I pray that you have trusted the Lord Jesus as your Savior.  Remember the words of John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”  (399.6)  (SF)
