Will There Be Marriage And Sex In Heaven?

by Jack Wellman · Print Print · Email Email

Will there be sex in heaven?  What will the roles of men and women who have husbands and wives in heaven be?  Will they still be married?

Like the Angels

Jesus addressed this question when the Sadducees asked him about whether there will still be marriages in heaven and whether they will still be married.  One thing that I learned is that the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection but the Pharisees did.  There is an easy way to remember who did and who did not believe in the resurrection among the religious leaders.  The Sadducees did not and so they were “sad, you see” but the Pharisees did because they could see “far, you see.”  I know it sounds silly, but it helps me to remember who believed and who didn’t believe in the resurrection.

The Sadducees were trying to trick Jesus when they asked,Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. Finally, the woman died. Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her (Matthew 12:19-23)?  What did Jesus say?  He stated that, At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven (Matthew 12:25).  This does not mean that we will have wings like the angels for not all angels have wings.  This means that there will be neither marriages of one to another or that they will procreate (have children).  The angels also do not marry nor do they bear children.  Jesus said in Mark 12:25 that When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” Jesus actually rebuked the Sadducees saying, Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God (Mark 12:24)?

No Need for Sex in Heaven

There is not going to be any sex in the Kingdom of Heaven because those who have put their trust in Christ on earth will live forever. There will be no need to replenish the human race because eternal life means that the death rate on earth at present (being 100% or 10 out of every 10 humans die) will not be like the death rate in heaven (being 0 out of 10 will die). Sex was created by God to bond male and females together as one in a relationship that is like that of Christ and His Bride, the church. The church has become one with Christ.  Sex is also made for procreation (having children) but it is a way of having two people, male and female, come together i n the most intimate relationship possible. Two people become one in unity, family, and harmony and their DNA creates one child at a time (save for twins or more). This unique gift from God is designed only for those who have made lifetime commitments to one another.  In Genesis 2:24 is says, For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

Jesus said as much when He stated that at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate (Mark 10:6-9).  Today, the church and Christ become one and what God had joined together, stays together.  That is the intent of marriage.  “Till death do us part” is in most marriage ceremonies but sadly, it is “until disagreement makes us part.”  This is why parents of the couple must stay out of their children’s marriages and perhaps is the reason why God said, in Genesis 2:24, For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh (my emphasis). They leave their old families behind to create a new family.  I do not mean that they distance themselves or cut off the relationship from their families but that relationship stops at the threshold of the new couple’s door.

Better Than Sex

Sex was created by God to bond male and females together as one in a relationship that is like that of Christ and His Bride, the church.

Sex was created by God to bond male and females together as one in a relationship that is like that of Christ and His Bride, the church.

God created sex for married couples to enjoy but in heaven, there will be no greater joy than to be in the presence of God.  What a day that will be and there will be nothing on this earth to compare with it. That is why Paul said, I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us (Romans 8:18).  The joy is indescribable even to Paul who was taught directly by Jesus Christ.  Paul said thatNow we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12). The Apostle John had a foretaste of this when he wrote, Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is (1 John 3:2).

The Roles of Men and Women in Heaven

Men and women are co-equals and co-heirs in Christ today and in the Kingdom of Heaven they will be ruling with Christ as kings and priests.  That indicates that we shall be ruling and reigning with Christ.  The capacity and responsibilities will not be due to our being male or female but due to what we have done on this earth.  Jesus said that some will rule five cities, some may rule ten cities, but our responsibilities will be in direct proportion to what we have done with out talents, time, and treasure here on earth (Luke 19).  In Revelation 5:10 it states that at His return, Hemade them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth”, “and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father–to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen (Revelation 1:6).


God is no respecter of persons between men or women (Acts 10:34) because,There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28). Men will not be the head of women in heaven. He and she will both be ruling together but in different capacities according to what they have done on earth.  We are not saved by works but our works will follow us to heaven and each man and woman will be rewarded according to what they have done on earth for the Lord.  Today, if you have not placed your trust in Christ, you will not be in heaven but be eternally separated from God with no second chance.  Today is your day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2) for no one is guaranteed that they will live beyond tonight or tomorrow. Come to Jesus today, repent of your sins, confess them to God, and put your trust in Jesus Christ.  Then you can join the other saints in ruling and reigning with Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven.  That will be better than any marriage or sexual relationship that has ever been consummated.

Oh darn, no whoopee in heaven? Not to be disrespectful of you or God’s Word…guess I haven’t the foggiest idea of the WONDER of BEING WITH GOD IN HEAVEN?
Perhaps I’m still ‘attached’ to this world. ‘Cause of my hubby’s health, we haven’t been able to enjoy this marital blessing for some time now. Have to admit…I MISS MAKING WHOOPEE!
Which brings me to a question I’d asked Pastor Daryl Evans and haven’t received a response yet. He had written an article about ‘lust.’ I asked him about masturbation, if it was a sin? Or should I pray for relief from sexual tension? Tried praying, taking a walk, SOMETHING to distract me from these overwhelming feelings.
Years ago, when I was still practicing the Catholic Faith, after spending 7 months in the ‘nuthouse,’ I find myself giving in to this and not really KNOWING if I were sinning or not. In Confession, I asked the Priest. He replied that in itself, it wasn’t a sin. But that excess of any kind is harmful to us. Now that I am becoming more familiar with God’s Word, this particular subject has me concerned.
I know I will never be perfect as Jesus is, but that doesn’t stop my wanting to be as perfect as possible for Him.
When you get the time, please advise me on this. OK?
May you, Pastor Jack, and your family have a Happy, Blessed, Wonderful Easter!!!
Always in Christ, Jesus…Patty


Jack Wellman March 28, 2013 at 1:13 pm

Patty, it’s always a joy to hear from you. You said, “should I pray for relief from sexual tension?” I think that is the solution. Jesus said that if we lust after a person in our heart we have committed adultery but as for your question, I don’t consider it the same as adultery but I personally think you should not be doing it for it is a matter of lust. I agree, none of us are perfect and I am about as far from that as a human can possibly be. I know its harder for single people to have to live with these passions and God made us this way. The Bible is silent on this and so I can’t be dogmatic about it but I believe that anything that takes our passions to a place that we might feel guilty about then for that person it is sin. Not an unforgivable one of course, but I like your solution when you feel this urge…”pray for relief from sexual tension.” That’s a great idea. Even so, know that we well never overcome the flesh entirely in this world but will be made perfect only on the day of Christ’s return. If it concerns you then I believe you shouldn’t do it. May God richly bless you and you also have blessed Resurrection Sunday.

Then what is fornication, if the Bible doesn’t mention this? Thank you,



Jack Wellman March 29, 2013 at 1:20 pm

Thank you so much Mrs. White for your comment/question. Fornication typically refers to consensual sexual intercourse between two people not married to each other. For many people, the term carries a moral or religious association, but the significance of sexual acts to which the term is applied varies between religions, societies and cultures. The definition is often disputed. In modern usage, the term is often replaced with the more judgment-neutral terms premarital sex, sex before marriage, or extramarital sex.

In the English translations of the Bible the Greek term πορνεία (porneia) has given rise to some dispute. The traditional translation of the term into English has been fornication, but has also been translated as whoredom. More recent translations have preferred the alternate translation of sexual immorality or simply immorality.

As I told Patricia, if it seems sin to a person then it is sin to them. As I also told her that I don’t believe she should be doing this even though the Bible is silent on it. Did I help answer your question my friend? I hope so and I thank you.


Darling Uzoma August 5, 2015 at 7:41 am

Thank you so much Sir. I have been very blessed and encouraged by the way you have handled questions here. More grace.


Laurel March 23, 2018 at 5:19 pm

In Jeremiah 3:14 it states that we will all be brought one a city, and two to a family. Which is saying they’re couples still in heaven. And what is the main, most loving and intimate relations between couples, a sexual one. Why would God suddenly take away our main form of showing pure love to another? This action would not be a God of love. Just as if God didn’t have some way to bring us ALL into the New World. I strongly believe the bible and its teachings have been largely misinterpreted! EVERYONE is saved and they still have sex. Thank you!


Jack Wellman March 24, 2018 at 10:54 am

Hello Laurel. NO, you are wrong. This verse and the entire chapter is about God restoring the nation of Israel to the land and bringing them back from captivity. Read the entire chapter and you’ll see that. Jesus said there is no marriage in heaven and there is no giving in marriage and no sex in marriage. You cannot find one BIble verse to support your teaching. Please read the context. Patricia is correct. No, Jesus said “Many” will think they are saved but not be so (Matt 7:21-23), so are you among the many who profess Christ but not posses Christ? There is no universalism. That is not in the Bible. Jesus came to give HIs life as a ransom for “many” and not all (Mark 10:45). Please call your pastor and straighten out your errors.


Jonathan Dahlin September 24, 2020 at 3:53 pm

What about isaiah 65:23?


Jonathan Dahlin March 18, 2021 at 9:48 am

What about Mark 10:29-30?


Jack Wellman March 18, 2021 at 10:58 am

This verse shows that we must put Christ before all others. It has zero to do with sex in heaven or not and there is zero evidence of people having sex in heaven. You are so fixated on something that has no eternal consequences like Matt 25:35-36 as unto Jesus (Matt 25:40) and Matt 28:18-20 as opposed to Matt 25:40 so please read Titus 3:9. Such a waist of time!

Jonathan Dahlin April 8, 2021 at 8:46 am

But why? Why would God take away something that he created? Wasn’t sex a part of God’s “very good” creation and not a product of the fall? Why doesn’t God just restore everything that “would have been” had the fall of sin not occurred?
And why is there no universalism? Why is there eternal conscious punishment in hell? I want a sincere answer. But if you don’t know the answer, that’s fine. I did ask God but he didn’t say anything.


Jack Wellman April 8, 2021 at 2:14 pm

Thank you Mr. Dahlin. If universalism was true, then Jesus died for nothing. Those who hate and kill and destroy should also be saved, when the reject Jesus. You say you asked God something but you failed to listen to Him in His Word, for He has already spoken (Heb 1:1-2) through the prophets, apostles, and through His Son. I will pray you find the answers you seek, but the greatest question is “Do you believe in Jesus’ sinless life, death on the cross, and resurrection” and can save you from God’s wrath (Rev 30:12-15). Sex or other things like this are not nearly as critical as that question (John 3:36).

somethinghere February 24, 2020 at 3:59 am

God is a pure functionalist.

Human’s are mortal, and have to marry and procreate to continue to exist.

Angel’s are immortal, and thus do not require marriage and procreation to continue to exist.

Thus sex between men and women, in marriage is considered “holy”, while any form of sexuality, even in a marriage is a severe unforgivable taboo, for Angel’s.


Jonathan Dahlin February 24, 2020 at 11:02 am

What about Joel 2:25-32? Will God restore romance and sex for me that the “locusts have eaten,” if I never have a romantic or sexual relationship on Earth?
Anything in heaven that gives the same or similar sensation as sex or romantic kissing, or expanded?
But, who cares about marriage and sex and not hugs and kisses?
If marriage is an illustration for something greater in heaven, will sex be an illustration for a greater pleasure in heaven?


Jonathan Dahlin February 24, 2020 at 11:03 am

Well, who cares about sex and not hugs and kisses? I didn’t mean to put “marriage” there. You know what I mean?

Patricia Schneider March 28, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Bless you, Pastor Jack, for replying so quickly! Was almost embarrassed asking such a question, but really wanted an answer. Your articles and replies in the past have helped me tremendously in my daily walks with Jesus, and understanding God’s Word…that’s why I turned to you.
Still keeping up with the online Bible Study…have changed it to the New International Version (NIV). AND STILL HAVE LOADS OF QUESTIONS! For instance:
In Timothy 2 vs. 11-12 “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”
Now how do I relate that to my life?
Maybe I’m using the ‘wrong interpretation’ of bibles? Could you give me your selection again?
Always in Christ, Jesus…Patty


Jack Wellman March 29, 2013 at 1:26 pm

When Paul instructed men and women (some think husbands and wives were specifically in view) in his churches (see also 1 Cor 11:2-16; 14:33-35), the immediate problem was disturbances in the worship service. On the one hand, changing attitudes about the man-woman relationship led women to assert themselves in the worship service in ways that threatened unity and perhaps also reflected a disregard for biblical and cultural distinctions between men and women. Disruptions by women included inquiring about the meaning of prophecies (1 Cor 14:33-35) and teaching men (1 Tim 2:11-12). But the present passage also reveals that the anger and arguments of some men were contributing to the disruption of the church’s worship service. As pointed out above (see on 2:1), Paul drew upon certain material in such cases in order to restore peace to the community by encouraging appropriate behavior. In this his concern both for biblical patterns and for the perceptions of those outside of the church is evident.

Most commentaries suggest that verses 11-12 prohibit women from teaching and holding authority over men. Within the worship setting their appropriate role is that of the learner. Women will be quiet during the teaching portion of the service–that is, they will not teach or question. And they will be fully submissive to men’s authority. This does not mean that women are not allowed to lead a women’s Bible study or to reach in Sunday school. I am not sure if this helped or not. I hope so Patty.


Derek Hill March 28, 2013 at 7:18 pm

This was just awesome! Jack, I always learn a lot from you in what you write. It is hard to picture eternity without sex, but I am still an earthly human. I know and have faith that when I enter into heaven it will all make sense because I will be perfect and whole and then I will truly know God like I have never known before! I am excited for that day when I meet Jesus face to face and praise our Father in heaven! God bless you brother! This was very encouraging and informative!


Jack Wellman March 28, 2013 at 7:31 pm

Derek, YOU are awesome man. Such an encourager. YOU are one of the reasons that I look forward to being in heave when we all finally get to meet. Oh what a great day that will be.


Tim G August 25, 2013 at 6:01 am

Totally agree!


Chip February 14, 2017 at 8:33 am

Totally agree too!


Rhonda March 28, 2013 at 9:07 pm

I just recently lost my husband, he was only 40. He was an alcoholic and died of Cirrhosis of the liver. He always read the bible and put his trust in the Lord but just had this terrible addiction. He left behind a 13 year old son and myself. I miss him so much and haven’t felt the same since his passing. I feel like part of me is gone as well. I just have a question. Will I see him again? I know Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins but I still question why did my husband have to die and leave behind his son that needs him so much. Rhonda


Jack Wellman March 28, 2013 at 9:18 pm

Rhonda, I am so very sorry my friend. What heartache this must be for you and our son. Let me show you what Gods says…“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”(Rom 8:1). Notice that Paul didn’t say “unless you sin again” or if you are not perfect. No, Jesus said in John 11:26 “whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” and”John 6:47 “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” and John 6:58 “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”

Jesus NEVER qualifies His word that “except if you sin again. “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24). This “has eternal life” is in the present tense. More specifically, the present, indicative tense which means that the very day your husband put his trust in Christ, he “had” or possessed eternal life. Once a person is born again, they can’t be unborn. God has no aborted children, only children who posses or hold eternal life. Paul said that in Eph 2:6-7 “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Notice that we (and your late husband) are ALREADY seated in the heavenly places, which means as good as done as far as God is concerned.

Let me give you one more comforting verse that Paul wrote to declare that this person who trusts in Christ is in no way going to be forgotten or as Paul wrote in Rom 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Now doesn’t that cover every possibility? Yes! Even death can not prevent us from being with Jesus. I pray this helps for Paul was “convinced!” and so am I and I hope you are now. May the God of all comfort, comfort you and richly bless you and your son. You will see your husband again.


Jack March 29, 2013 at 4:07 am

Happy Good Friday, Pastor Jack! Very sad to hear that this woman you were talking to, has lost her husband to alcohol. 🙁 I know how she feels, some of the people I know have been lost to atheism and always have. When I say lost, I mean ETERNALLY lost. That is why our duty is to preach the Gospel to as many people as possible, so that none who never knew God may perish, but be joined with Him in eternal heaven! 😀 Believe me, as long as this man truly put his trust and faith in Jesus Christ, he will be socialising with probably 3 billion people as we speak. We love you, Jesus! :DD


Jack Wellman March 29, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Amen…by putting our trust in Christ we can be sure that He will never turn us away (John 6:37) and that security in only as strong as the Securer (John 10:28-29). This is all the more reason to have a passion for the lost and be about rescuing the perishing and casting nets but with the recognition that it is the Father Who draws men and women to Christ (John 6:44) even though we are still commanded to enter into the harvest (Matt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8). Thanks Jack!


Jonathan April 2, 2013 at 8:55 am

Pastor Jack,

From your reply to Rhonda, it sounds like you believe in “once saved, always saved”. I could be interpreting your reply wrong and, if so, I apologize. I just wanted to say that I think there is plenty of scriptural evidence to back up the fact that someone CAN lose their salvation. I myself have more than likely been in that situation on numerous occasions…even very recently. Mostly due to a complete falling away from God and Christian living.
I don’t want anyone to lose hope that a loved one who has passed won’t be in heaven, but I do believe you have to look at how they lived. None of us can say for certain who is saved and who isn’t, but you can’t accept Christ and go on living however you want. Of course we will all continue to struggle with sin and will be forgiven when we ask, but we must do our best and continually strive to be better.
I’m no one to preach, I just wanted to add to the discussion and hear yours/others thoughts. Thank you.


Jack Wellman April 2, 2013 at 4:55 pm

Thank you Jonathan for your comment. I do not like the term “once saved, always saved” for it is not in the Bible. I believe we must all work out our own salvation with fear and trembling and the haunting works of Jesus in Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”


Zack June 2, 2014 at 5:55 pm

“Once saved, always saved” verbatim might not be in the Bible, but it is implied once someone has salvation, they can never lose it. Jesus says that nobody can take out of His hands what the Father has given Him. So how can we say that you can “lose your salvation”? I don’t like that term at all.

To lose your salvation kind of makes it sound like you have ownership and have earned it. Salvation was given, and we must be weary on how we assume people can “lose” what God has given. I think the Bible speaks for itself that those who are not saved, will never be saved, but those who are truly saved can not lose that. To say they could seems to be blasphemous because it goes against election.

I, do, however, believe in the professing Christian (one who says they believe in Christ, but does not truly) and we can discern this by the fruits they produce (And I come to the understanding from reading Mt. 7:21-23 that these are the people who Christ is speaking of), but in no way shape or form does this equate to us saying, “You lost your salvation today, but you can get it back tomorrow if you really try hard.” That is buffering the idea that we can in some way earn our salvation, or that we have a hand in it, taking away from God’s sovereignty, and Christ’s sacrifice.

Those who truly have Jesus in their heart, never loses Him. If they do, they never truly had Him to begin with.

But other than that, great article, Jack!


Jack Wellman June 2, 2014 at 6:02 pm

You are spot on my brother….I so admire your biblical wisdom. Ironically (or by God’s sovereignty really) I just wrote this to a lady who’s friend and parents are fruitless Christians:

Dear (name withheld) I am so proud of your effort to ensure that a person is soundly saved. Jesus said that you shall know them (provides evidence or proof of) by their fruit. No fruit or bad fruit shows that they are truly not abiding in the vine. I have most of my family that say “I’m Christian” yet they show no evidence, no willingness to be part of the Body of Christ, the church (this is disobedience, e.g. Heb 10:23-25). We are to honor our parents, as you said, even if they are old. One way we honor them is to show them that we love them and love sometimes offends in order to, as Tom said, humble them because the most loving thing we can do is to tell them the truth. The truth sets you free or it makes your really made. The Word of God comforts the afflicted but afflicts the comfortable. 85% of Americans say that since they are a good person they’ll go to heaven. This is contrary to what the Bible says…we are all sinners, we have the wrath of God abiding on us still (Rom 5; John 3:36) I would ask you to either follow this patter at the link provided and is the way that Jesus, Paul, Peter and the church did evangelism. We do this so that they won’t hear Matt 7:21-23 someday. Either print this article off, particulary at the bottom where it gives people the “good person” test at:


You could also mail it to them. Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against the church. There are no solo Christian acts in the New Testament church, ANYWHERE! Do this in love. As I said before with your friend, you may have to offend to soften their hearts. Soft words produce hard hearts but hard words produce soft hearts. Use Scripture, stand firm, risk a friendship for truth’s sake, pray the Spirit convicts them of their sin and then back off…and leave the rest of up God for that is all you can do and leave the rest up to God. Do it only one time and then wait upon God. Ask them to read Matthew 7:21-23 and ask them if that concerns them? Jesus said that MANY will say on that day Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” The Word of God is like a sharp two-edged sword. It needs to cut in order to heal! Let me know what you think of the evangelistic nature of the article. This method used by Jesus works with “fruitless” Christians who may be false converts (or tares among the wheat), it works with Mormon’s, Jehovah Witnesses’, Atheists, Muslims, Jews, Agonistics….will pray God softens there heart but be prepared to and risk offending for their eternal souls are just too important not to!

I think you are so right Zack and I thank God for you brother for you know you are so right. MANY will say on that day but MANY will be lost! How tragic. I wish I had you in my church or you could go with me in street evangelism, in the mall, or door to door. 320 people die every hour and 2/3rd or MORE will forever be separated from a Holy God in a Christ-less eternity. You tell em’ brother. We need men of God like you so much! Jesus said that I give them eternal life. If the receive it and then lose it, was it really eternal? NO~ and Jesus, being God cannot lie> John 10:28-29, John 6:37, 39 was true then and true today and forever! May God richly bless you brother.


Zack June 2, 2014 at 6:16 pm

I am very grateful for your kindness, Jack. I wouldn’t admire my wisdom, I certainly do not have over 300 articles under my belt! (Kudos to you for that!) but you, on the other hand, possess great wisdom. But as I read through Proverbs, I can only pray the Lord grants me wisdom that I can use.

Jack, I have been reading many of your articles today, and they really do open my eyes (especially the article about living together before marriage). You speak edification to the body of Christ, and may the Lord bless you for that. I seek out your guidance and understanding on sexual immorality (as I was recently in a very sinful relationship that I broke out of by the Grace of God) but still find myself consumed at times by the sinful thoughts, and even have met up with her, not honoring God in the slightest with what I do. I ask humbly for your prayers, and will continue reading your articles until I can be a man after God’s own heart to the extent you are. I can be impulsive, acting on my urges rather than logic, and Proverbs 14 showed me that, so now I look to honing my faith. I desire to live my life for Christ, and I will not stop fighting, no matter how many times sin knocks me down.

But thank you for your articles, you are truly doing the Lord’s work and I can only imagine the glory you will have in heaven for your work here on earth. God Bless, brother!

Jonathan Dahlin September 3, 2017 at 9:00 pm

Warnings should come first, followed by a promise. Warn them against evil first, then give an encouragement. That’s the most effective way to turn them to good.
Hard words should be given to disobedience, and soft words to obedience.
Hard words must be given first to the wicked people, then the soft words, right? Just hard words might make people think that God is not giving them fun. That means we should say “God has a good reason behind it,” right? Or something… That helps people feel better about God’s laws and not hurt. You are right, though, that we should alert people about hell.
We must discourage people from doing evil, and encourage people to do good.
2/3 or more will go to hell? That sounds like a reference to Matthew 7:13-14. Is That a prophecy? It’s not a select few that go to heaven, right?
What about Revelation 7:9? Well, multitude, beyond count? That doesn’t mean that few people will go to hell. It just means that many(not necessarily a large proportion) will go to heaven.
Do you think it’s fair that God would create billions of people and then send a bunch of them to hell? Well, it’s not God who sends them to hell, it’s the people who make the choice to go to hell.

Jonathan Dahlin December 16, 2017 at 6:44 pm

Soft words soften soft hearts, but harden hard hearts, right? Hard words soften hard hearts, but harden soft hearts. That about right?

Rainey April 2, 2013 at 8:10 pm

Hello sorry for writing so much to you but i am working on trying to help my dad to understand that Jehovah witness has a lot of false in that religion. My dad is trying to tell me that we shouldn’t celebrate holidays like Christmas because nobody really knows when jesus’s real birthday is. He is also telling me that how do we know if Christians are the right religion if every religion has their own bible. How do we know which bible is the right one??? He also belives there is no hell and no heaven. He thinks that their is only a kingdom some where. He belives there will be a place for the bad people but no hell. He also thinks that if you pray to god and show him you are sorry for the things you do then he can save you from hell but i keep telling him that he needs to get saved. Please get me some answers so i can share this with him….


Jack Wellman April 2, 2013 at 8:31 pm

Rainey, I am so sorry my friend. I am glad you care enough to tell him the truth. Currently, he is like most lost people. They equate what they “believe” is more important than God’s truth. Only God alone can change this man’s heart (Prov 21:1) and that is what we can pray for. He says “I believe” on so many things but you could ask him, “can you prove that there is no God? That there is no heaven or hell? Can you prove that what we “believe” changes what is true? We used to “believe” that the earth was flat but our beliefs didn’t make it so. Just being sorry is not enough. As you know, it takes repentance, godly sorrow for our sins, confession of our sins and then putting our trust in Jesus Christ to save us.

We have a couple of articles that you can read and copy and paste to print off for him to read and see what he thinks. One is “Is Jesus the Only Way?” at:


Another is “Who Goes to Heaven? Do Good People Go to Heaven?” at:


Here is another too. It’s called, “How Do We Know the Bible is True? Is it Really the Word of God?” at:


Start with one at a time though. Read it with him. Read the Bible verses that are in these articles. There is real power in the Word of God and then leave it up to God to convict him for only God the Father can draw people to Christ (John 6:44) but He does use people to do this.

With the Word of God, and a Woman of God, with the Spirit of God…God can make children of God. Don’t despair. Even Saul (later Paul) was a murdering enemy of the church yet God changed his heart completely. I’ll pray for that with you.


Chevelle April 4, 2013 at 12:09 pm

Hello Jack,

This is a very good article.

I was wondering if it is okay, according to the scriptures, to be married but not have children? And I mean deciding that you don’t want to have any even though you are capable.



Jack Wellman April 4, 2013 at 12:11 pm

Thanks Chevy…I see no sin at all in not having or not wanting to have children. That is not even mentioned in the Bible as sin so you are just fine. We have freedom in the non-essentials of the faith and not having children is okay if you are married. May God richly bless you my good friend and thanks for the question.


Jonathan Dahlin February 20, 2018 at 7:47 pm

Makes me feel a little sad, since you and your wife could have children but never have children. But I don’t care what you do as long as it is not a sin. I cry when I hear what you said. Don’t let what I say change your decision.
Any way I could explain anything better?


Godlove April 6, 2013 at 5:58 am

What nan insight!
Bravo!!! my friend


Brian Finley April 6, 2013 at 7:11 am

What an amazing message. It is 6:40 in the morning here in Texas and what compelled me to read this I don’t know but I am sure greatful I did. Thank you for taking the time to write this


Jack Wellman April 6, 2013 at 12:12 pm

Greetings to you Mr. Finley in the Great State of Texas. What a pleasure to hear such encouragement my friend. I appreciate it.


Bro. Repentance April 10, 2013 at 5:04 am

Dearest Pastor Jack;
I Have Numerous Questions To Ask But I Will Only Ask Few Ones That Bothers Me. 1. Is Payment Of Tithe(1/10th) Compulsory. 2. If We Don’t Pay Will Jesus Allow Devourer Or Arm Robbers To Invade Us. 3. And If I Love To Pay But My Income


Jack Wellman April 10, 2013 at 10:53 am

Thank you for your question my friend. I tithe but don’t do it out of a legal requirement but from a cheerful heart as Paul described. I believe those who don’t make tithe or offerings are only hurting themselves. I believe that God will not bless those who are not blessing the church and certain bibillically sound ministries. Does this answer your question sir?


William April 18, 2013 at 1:01 pm

No sex in heaven. So easy for those who are married, or who are regretful for “sowing their wild oats” earlier on. No I am not idolizing sex (remaining chaste, no porn, no masturbation) and it hurts. Allow me to reiterate that: It is painful to be single and obey God’s standards on sex. Please do not say to exercise, serve, or whatever else to distract or use that energy. I have tried them all, and I find that it is quite easy to serve, exercise, or whatever and still “feel the burn” of sexual desire. Do not insinuate that having desire is sin. Sin is acting in a way that God would not approve of on those desires. If anything, my pain is a sign that I am NOT SINNING!
I sincerely hope you are wrong, because not only is there no other avenue to fill this desire (ie sex is for more than procreation, otherwise I don’t think it would be as popular as it is), but it also points to a seemingly eternal victory for sexual sin in the life of sinners.

Victory cannot be achieved by doing nothing. In the realm of sex, that is all singles are allowed to do (nothing). Please do not mix semantics by trying to mix up sex and gender like Peter Kreeft. I am not talking about the chance to be a man (gender), I am talking about intercourse, coupulation, horizontal bop, whatever clarification is required. The only avenue to victory is for something to happen, and no sex in eternity just seems like the devil can sit in hell and find the smallest satisfaction that he ruined sex for celibate singles forever because God does away with it, and the only allowable response is to do nothing.
Why is sex the only part of creation that God does not redeem? After all the troubles it caused it seems to be a prime candidate for redemption. Anyway, I find a flaw in your argument anyway. Adam had the closest relationship tyo God that any man has ever had, and before the fall, God himself said “It is not good for man to be alone” and that began the whole sex/intercourse dynamic. God could have given more of himself to Adam in response to that statement, instead he gave Eve. I am just a man like Adam, so why do I have to be denied even in eternity if I am obeying today? Perhaps you are wrong, maybe I am, but I find this tired argument of no sex in heaven to be rather cold hearted to obendient singles.


Matthew March 30, 2019 at 12:45 am

I feel the same way you do, William. If there could be at least one other person who is feeling like people are being cold hearted, I am the one, however I am sure others are feeling the 100% same way you do… you’re not alone. I hate it when people say those things to me also and it makes me feel upset. If you want me to pray for you regarding this, William, please let me know and if you could pray for me also, I’d appreciate it. Thank you. 🙂


Jonathan Dahlin November 5, 2020 at 11:35 am

Same for me. Is there some parts of God’s original perfect creative design that he cannot restore to its perfect form?
I don’t know why JackWellman won’t respond to either of these two comments.


morris imbwaga May 21, 2013 at 11:59 pm

This so good my the almight continue to use u to enlight many in the missio dei of the LORD GOD of heaven


Lauren June 16, 2013 at 5:26 pm

Sex is an earthly pleasure. So, I believe that once you leave this Earth, you can’t have such things anymore. Besides, I’m sure that once in Heaven, you would be at peace and wouldn’t even think about sex.


Zack June 2, 2014 at 6:45 pm

That is really heavy information! And i’ll be sure to look at those articles! I will confess I have used pornography to try and fill that sexual void at times, but that is my folly not putting utmost confidence in Christ, whom I know can deliver me from myself. Jack, thank you much for these articles and wisdom. Iron shapens iron, and you are certainly iron.


MirelCl July 31, 2014 at 6:47 pm

Mr. Jack Wellman, I am sad and I feel empty. I understand that will be no marriage in heaven, like Jesus said. Then what will happen with sexual life? God want to take this pleasure from us? I can’t believe, God create sexual life for us, but He want to eliminate it in heaven?
We have interdiction to make sex?
We don’t drink, we don’t eat, we don’t have sex, etc. What life will be in heaven? A boring life? A life of eunuch?
I need an answer!


Jack Wellman July 31, 2014 at 7:22 pm

Thank you MirelCL. Jesus never married, never had sex, and was eternally and fully joyful in the presence of the Father. These things you mentioned are physical and there can be no comparison with what that will be like than what we experience here and today on earth Rom 8:18). What is the only other option (Rev 20:11-15)? Are you saying that if there is no sex in heaven, they you won’t want to be there? There will be drink and food in heaven and such a time of rejoicing that we cannot even describe it. Have you ever read Randy Alcorn’s book “Heaven”? It is an outstanding look at what we can expect. After Jesus’ resurrection He had both a physical body and a spiritual one and could eat and drink, which is what He did after He rose from the grave. After the resurrection, Jesus was able to eat (Luke 24:42-43). He showed people His hands and feet with the nail prints in them (Luke 24:39; John 20:27), and people even grabbed His feet and worshipped Him (Matt. 28:9). As the reports of Jesus’ resurrection were spreading. This resurrected, physical body was a glorified, spiritual body. The spiritual body is not merely “spirit.” The spiritual body is the resurrected, glorified, physical body just like yours will be. Is it not worth living for heaven, even if there is no sex?


MirelCl August 1, 2014 at 4:40 pm

Thank you for answer, Mr. Jack
I want to understand these:
1. We’ll be with physical body (legs, hands, mouth, eyes, nose) in heaven?
2. Here we have flash, bones.
What kind of structure we’ll have in heaven?
3. God made us naked (Adam, Eve).
Will be nude people in heaven?
4. Will be women, men and children in heaven?
5. Will be kisses, hugs in heaven?


Jack Wellman August 1, 2014 at 10:27 pm

Thank you Mirelcl…Will there be nude people in heaven? I doubt that very much. Will there be children in heaven? the Bible doesn’t say and so if the Bible is silent, so must we be…but there are neither male nor female in heaven but as Jesus said in Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.” Yes, we will have a physical body but have the capabilities of a spirit body. Flesh and bones, yes, but we will be spirit too because both body and soul reunite at Christ’s return. Yes, kisses and hugs, no doubt in heaven. To find out what heaven will be like, please read this: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/what-does-the-bible-say-heaven-is-like/


Jonathan Dahlin December 7, 2017 at 6:46 pm

Neither male or female in heaven? Does that mean there won’t be beautiful, feminine-looking people in heaven? There’s a difference between sex and gender. I think kissing is only so great if it is from or with a girl/woman.
The bible is silent on whether there are children in heaven? I personally think there won’t be children in heaven. I don’t know how to explain why I think that. If we don’t procreate, we wouldn’t have children to grow into adults. And if children are children forever, they wouldn’t have adult aspects. Could I explain that better?

bob1234 November 30, 2014 at 8:17 am

The Bible says in Joel 2:25-32, “So, I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust have eaten”.

Most people take that verse to mean God will restore EVERYTHING we missed in this life because “the locust have eaten” it. What about all the people who never got married? Or who got married but never had children? Or who got divorced? What about all those people who got married later in life and never got to experience young married life? will God “restore the years the locusts have eaten” for those people? How? If you take literally what Jesus says, “they will neither marry nor be given in marriage”, then how will he “restore the years”? That means there will be people who are forever on the outside looking in, who will forever miss a precious and meaningful life experience because God just took it away? How cruel is that?

And of course, people who missed their dating years will also be denied that experience… forever. If we “neither marry nor are given in marriage” then what is the point? There is no purpose to dating, and therefore no dating… no dances, no candle light dinners with that someone special, no walks along the beach, splashing through the waves. All of those things you see in the movies will be forever denied to people who missed those experiences because “the locusts have eaten” them.

So tell me what Joel 2:25 means if it doesn’t mean what it says? How is God going to restore everything to us if He is going to take a major part of our experience away from us in Heaven?

That’s why there must be more to Matthew 22:30 than meets the eye. At least some people are willing to explore that possibility.


Anonymous March 23, 2015 at 7:37 am


And “There is not going to be any sex in the Kingdom of Heaven” comes across as bluntly judgmental toward those who never have the chance here, and many otherwise faithful singles may actually be pressured to commit fornication because of statements like that (“Well, I may as well experience it now, while I still have the chance. Besides, God will forgive me, right?”).


Anonymous July 30, 2015 at 4:09 am

Hi man,

do not worry about what those people say. Believe that you will be compensated for what you have missed out here on earth.

God is not dumb. If his rewards were only based on what we have done without conisdering our earthl circumstances, then we have a RIGHT to question God’s fairness. But God is not like that. Everything He gives are gifts and some people will get their reward here (often in full), whereas others do sacrifice willingly or unwillingly to receive billion times better things in heaven – things those other people will surely miss out.

Just imagine God gives you 1 Dollar per day and you give it back to Him (which means sacrificing it). Other people may spend it on their own (rejoicing in marital blessings). What those people forget is, that God has a bank account in heaven with an interest rate of a trillion percent. You will be able to withdraw all this, whereas others will have almost nothing left.

Another example: Consider one christian eating meat, the other one does not. The first one does it and thanks God, the second on does not eat it because he sacrifices it for God and gives thanks (although he would like to eat it, but it wouldn’t even matter if he could live without it). Both serve God, none of the sins. Which one of the is suffering? The guy who eats meat has only joy, the other one does not because of his offering. One is just thanking God, but the other one’s action is more valuable since He is giving thanks THROUGH offering and suffering.
You take part in the suffering of Christ, unlike those people who do not know what suffering is. There are countless preachers who live the happy-christian-no-worries life and think that they live the christian life with great faith.
Believe me, their faith has never been tested to the maximum. What you suffer (and me too) is unimaginable for those kind of people.
Earth is a recruiting center for God’s kingdom. Everyone who lives a live with marital joy, many blessings, hardly any pain and suffering, no worries etc. are simple workers. The true soldiers of Christ, the glourious warriors and the most faithful ones are those who suffer and still stick to God. I wonder how “faith” of those many people here commenting and writing articles on this site would look like if they have been in such troublesome situations like long-time singles/life-long singles, those who get reminded EVERY SINGLE DAY that there are so many christians who got all those blessings, whereas guys like us are left out. And as if this wasn’t enough agony and torture, the devil rapes our minds with doubts and fears etc…leading to rejection of God and so on.
My brother, do no think that God would think higher of anyone of those who have marital joys. In fact, the majority of those people who may got all this blessings, may use only 70% of what they are capable of. Someone who suffers everyday because of loneliness, lack of love and intimacy, compassion etc., has doubts and fears and anger, but STILL holds on God and does the little he can do to serve him, can EASILY be seen as far more faithful (like using 90% of what he is capable of).

Lastly, just look at Jesus. He had nothing here on Earth. No joy, but lonliness, he was abandoned, tortured, mocked, ridiculed, threatend, humiliated, insulted, crucified etc. He never had sex, no marital joys, no girlfriend, not even many close friends. Not even His disciples could understand him fully. Now look where He is: AT THE RIGHT HAND OF HIS FATHER!!!! there is no better place! that is His reward and He was the only one who used his full potential 100%!!!
The biggest prophet and the biggest man on earth where ELIJAH and John the Baptist, respectively. Both of the were loners.
Be sure: God will repay, He will compensate. Do not think that in heaven everyone will be equal. Like we are all humans (equal) but have different properties, jobs, skills etc. (not equal), in heaven we will be like the angels (equal) but with different responsibilites and tasks (not equal).
Whatever you have missed out here on earth, you will get back a trillion-fold. You have way more to look forward too than all those maried people. True warriors rise from suffering and sacrificing.
God shows personal favoritism to no one!! So there will be justice. Let God execute justice on you, when you will be lifted up million times higher than other christians who had a happier and less stressful, painful, lonely life.



Jonathan Dahlin September 9, 2021 at 1:01 pm

Will there be intermediate compensation time between life on Earth and life in heaven?
Will God restore to me the romance and sex that locusts have eaten?
Is the concept of “World of Spirits” Biblical? Lee Woofenden at says so in posts with the tag But don’t trust Swedenborg!


Jack Wellman September 9, 2021 at 1:24 pm

Mr. Dahlin, Please stay far away from these websites you mentioned. I disabled the links since they are teaching satanic doctrines. I went to these sites and read much of their content and it is so heretical that we cannot allow such links on our Christian website. The Bible nowhere says there is an “intermediate compensation between life on earth and in heaven.” That is a manmade doctrine, therefore it is dangerous. Please come out of her my friend…she is the Babylon religion you’re following there. There is so much error in the blogs in these links and the author is so relying on what He thinks and not what Scripture actually says, I say stop following these authors and blogs. They lead to nowhere good. No such links will ever be allowed on this site.


Jonathan Dahlin September 9, 2021 at 2:13 pm

I don’t trust Lee either.

Jonathan Dahlin September 9, 2021 at 2:20 pm

Did you read the comments on Lee’s posts on that unorthodox site? Why don’t you try commenting on his posts to rebuke what he says and correct him?

Jane Mason January 17, 2015 at 5:48 pm

Sex in heaven is impossible anyway. To have sex, we need to be flesh and blood. Nobody will enter the kingdom as flesh and blood. So, no sex in heaven.


Teressa April 7, 2015 at 1:15 pm

I just came across this article. I read the whole thing and even the comments at the bottom. I have been married for 30 years to the same man, we have two grown sons and a beautiful 8 year old granddaughter. My husband recently left me for another woman. I can’t support myself on what I make an hour, so I’m struggling financially and well I guess struggling all the way around. I am very bitter and angry. I know that I shouldn’t be, and I am trying very hard not to be. I pray about it everyday. But still cry everyday. I feel so betrayed. I believe in Jesus..and I believe that he died for us on the cross. I do love the Lord, but I am struggling with loneliness and confusion. He has more or less thrown me to the wolves and I’m being eaten alive. Fixing to be living under a bridge. Glad to know that the “hell” I’m living here on earth will be gone when I get to the Father above..God Bless


Jack Wellman April 7, 2015 at 2:19 pm

Hello Teressa…and thank you for your honest feelings of going through such a hard time with us. I know that Jesus said that whoever builds there house on the Rock shall not be moved and when the storms come, the house remains…but never did He promise no storms would come. I feel helpless at times like this and can only pray for you my friend. I fear for your husband’s eternal future without end (Rev 20:12-15) as he is giving up all eternity and suffering for a fleeting bit of sinful pleasure but you’re faithfulness to God will have eternal joy in the presense of God.


Jack Wellman April 7, 2015 at 2:20 pm

Some churches have relief funds from the deacons funds for such cases as this. Maybe you should talk to your pastor about this and seek his advice and help.


Teressa April 7, 2015 at 3:06 pm

Thank you so much Mr. Jack..I appreciate you replying back to me..and look forward to reading more of your articles. Thank you for your prayers.


Jack Wellman April 7, 2015 at 3:12 pm

My good pleasure Teressa. Let me add one thing; To me, trust is belief. We have a chair in our church that I often use as an example of faith and trust. I can see the chair and believe it exists but until I sit on it, I do not yet trust it or have faith in it. Only when I sit down in it do I not only believe in the chair, I put my trust in it that it will hold me up and have faith that I won’t come crashing down on the floor. Since Jesus is said to uphold the universe by the word of His power, can you not also trust him to take care of your current problem? If He can uphold all things by His power, what is your problem that is too much for Him?

God is the One Person Who we can trust in a world where precious little else can be trusted. Even when things seem to be falling apart, God is supreme and sovereign over all things, therefore we can fully trust His Word (the Bible), we can fully trust His blessing when we obey His Word, and we can trust in God by resting upon Him, so yes you trust the God that keeps the universe going and you can trust him to take care of your current problem, no matter what it is. To Him, everything is small, even the heavens which are measured with His finger (Isaiah 40:12) and I say to you with confidence, you can trust a God like that!


Lisa October 15, 2015 at 11:42 pm

Mr. Jack, I went forward when I was 11 and was baptized but before I did I knelt by myself in our little chapel and asked God to use me as a tool for his kingdom.Moving forward 40 years later I went before the church and gave my testomony how I had fell away but God used Christian people to pull me back in.So I redeadicated my life to him. Opened up a clothing room for the poor at church(God put it on my heart.) Became a youth sponcer at church for the teenagers and more. I was on fire. My husband said if I put God first he didn’t want to be married to me any more. He is hooked on pot. Went through a divorce and moved closer to my elderly parents.Ten years later I met a man that treats me the way my Father treats my Mother with love and respect.They have been married for 64 years. Everyone in my family loves this man also. But we have sinned because some how it just happened he moved in and never left. He has asked for my hand in marriage from my parents and we will be married this time next year.But in the mean time I feel convicted because we have sinned since we are living together. He actually works 3rd shift and I am in ill health so that is why my parents haven’t said to much. They want someone to be with me since I have a chronic illness. Should I get rebaptized? Will God keep forgiving me till I get married? I am so confused? Lisa


Jack Wellman October 16, 2015 at 9:16 am

Hello Lisa. I would certainly talk to your pastor or have you already spoken with him about this and if so, what did he say? Since you are engaged to be married now do you really need to keep living together? I know he works a shift where you are probably sleeping but there’s a lot going on here. As for “rededicating your life” to God I am not sure what this means? If you rededicated your life to God but are still living with an unmarried man, then I have concerns and you must feel concerned too or you wouldn’t have commented here. Can you not live with your parents until you are married?

Also, can you tell me about your conversion experience? Did it involve repentance and belief in Christ? Repentance means turning away from and forsaking your sin. I want to help Lisa but so would your own pastor too. Talk to him and pray about this? Is this pleasing God?


Ebonee Tate June 19, 2016 at 10:20 am

Hello Pastor Jack, I am 29 and still a virgin because I have not found a truly righteous man to commit to. I cant fornicate and now some people think its wrong to masturbate and I have prayed , prayed and prayed for the Lord to take away my urge to have sex and that prayer have not been answered yet. Now knowing that it will not be sex in Heaven is kind of discouraging I feel like I will never have sex and I want to so bad its driving me insane. Why would the Lord design sex for married people but its forbidden to single people and we are only buring in our lust for a spouse we may never get and stuck with the sexual tension we cant do anything about. That’s torture. What should I do? PLEASE HELP ME!!


Jack Wellman June 19, 2016 at 3:17 pm

Hello Ebonee. I am so sorry for what you are going thru. Have you talked with a fellow Christian woman mentor about this? I would. Are there no single men in your church? For one thing, Jesus wants our hearts above all things, people, possessions, over everything so to be more precious to us is making Him our highest priority. Some live all their lives as single Christians and go through all their lives, into their 60’s but they make Jesus their first love. A widow in our church never had any children or a husband and she is now 79 but she somehow managed so I don’t know how I can help until your deepest satisfaction is in God.


Morris Thuynsma October 5, 2016 at 5:51 am

Hi Jack i lost my Wife to an aneurysm in February after 27 yrs of marriage. The only thing i asked of God at the time was that he be with me as he promises in a season like this. During this time i have kept my eye’s on Him and stand in awe of how He Heals. I battle with regret and i know the enemy wants to steal my joy when i think of how Blessed my marriage was for the last 18 months. But i thank God that i am able to recognize this when it occurs and focus on Him. Thanks for your encouragement in the way you respond to all the questions asked. I have also recieved answers in some of your responses to question. God Bless my brother.


Kirk October 8, 2016 at 1:22 am

It is only the enemy that would want the words of Jesus in this passage to “haunt” a Believer. And admittedly, I have been deceived with that nonsense left and right throughout my adult life.

As a matter of fact, I think causing a true Believer to question their Salvation and whether or not they belong to God is one of Satan’s favorite tools/attacks. But Satan can **** off.

Romans 8:38-39 and Philippians 1:6 could not be more clear.

In Matthew 7:21, Jesus does not say “only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven *perfectly*.

Rather, the implication is that He is simply saying “only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (in spite of their sin nature, and only through Me working in them via my Holy Spirit). Meaning, some of the time. We as Christians do the will of the Father *some* of the time.

And it’s enough. That’s precisely why Jesus had to go to the cross and shed His blood. He does the work. Not us. Period. Hence, His grace is sufficient. Complete. It’s the *only* reason God can see us as “perfect in His sight” and “as white as snow” in spite of our sin.

We don’t stop sinning completely after we become a true Believer.

Any Christian or human being that claims they do the will of the Father all the time is full of bullstuff, and is buying into “performance-based Christianity”, which isn’t Christianity at all.

Christianity is at the cross, and the feet of Jesus, and in the blood atonement made for each and every human being.

On a side note, but related topic, it’s so sad that millions of Catholics are being misled by a performance based *cult* which completely opposes the true message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Why do you think Hollywood so often pays tribute to Catholicism in it’s films?

Jack, regarding the original article, personally, I don’t know that I would make the assumption that there will definitely not be sex in Heaven. When declaring God’s reasons for creating sex in the first place in your article, I felt like you missed something.

I believe God created sex also for our pleasure within the marriage bond. But don’t misunderstand me. Not *ultimately* for our pleasure, but rather, because I believe that He delights in the healthy pleasures we experience that are from Him, for the reason that it brings glory to Him.

So with that said, and if that’s true, then to suggest that we will no longer experience any forms of pleasure in Heaven (good food, sex, music, art, nature, material things, etc..) other than simply being in His presence seems to be jumping to conclusions.

It seems that God has given us far too many clues regarding His creativity and dynamic style (we can’t even begin to fathom how creative and how dynamic) to reduce our picture of Heaven to just “being in His presence”.

That said, I am not AT ALL suggesting that if that does end up being the case, and you are right, that it will not be enough. Whatever Heaven is like, will be AMAZING. This we know according to His promises.

When I was a child in the first grade, I looked up in the sky, and the Lord spoke to me, and told me that someday, i would meet a man that really loves me. Well, long story, but to sum it all up, I was married 3 times, and each marriage ended in divorce. The first two marriages, they cheated on me. The last marriage, he beat my son so badly, and emotionally abused him all of the time. When we sat at the table, he glared at him (He was only six years old) and was trying to find something he was doing wrong. He would say, ” get your feet off of that chair” get your elbows off of the table, hold your head up, when you eat. Honestly, if he was doing these things he accused him of, I would know he was doing it, but he wasn’t doing anything wrong. Get that sad look off your face, stop smiling. He caused him to be in bondage over the food. He wouldn’t let him open a new box of cereal, until he finished the first box. The reason I buy 4 different kinds, is so he will have a variety. Noone wants to eat cheerios every day. It is what you are in the mood for, what would taste good this morning. Anyway, after I saw him take the belt off and whip him with the buckle side, I decided this wasn’t going to work. It was either leave him, or watch him kill my son.
I have did without making love for a long time, and I feel that it will not be neccessary to make love in Heaven, because Gods love, and the fact that we will have a body that will not ever desire to sin, and the joy we will experience, because we are in a place that love will be the whole theme, it will not be neccessary to make love. Since i didn’t find anyone in this life that loves me and treats me the way God wants a man to love his wife, then I thought maybe he is in Heaven waiting for me. I know we won’t be married or anything, but maybe I will meet my soulmate there, and together we can walk the golden streets, worship God and Jesus together, sing in a heavenly choir, go visit our friends, and once in a while, go together to visit. I think of maybe showing off our heavenly homes, having picnics, play in the water. I also would like for Jesus to bring me a baby, who died in birth, and the babies parents are not coming to heaven. I want to raise the baby myself. I think that would be so nice to have a baby to hold, and rock, and to sing to. There are also people who I loved on earth, not boyfriends, but had a lot of fun with them, that is in Heaven, that I miss so much, and I would love to embrace him and give him a holy kiss on his cheek. Do you think we will be allowed to kiss a smacky kiss on the lips?


Jack Wellman October 17, 2016 at 7:33 am

Yes, I do think a kiss will be allowed and so will embraces.


Jonathan Dahlin August 24, 2018 at 5:12 pm

But with the opposite gender (there’s a difference between gender and sex). Kissing is only so nice if it’s with or from a woman (or rather, beautiful feminine person, whether female or sexless).


Saira December 2, 2016 at 8:50 am

Pastor Jake, I need your guidance in my spiritual life. I born into Christian family and raised by the belief of Christ. I pray daily and take fasting whenever it is possible for me. I’m currently working and going to school to get bachelor’s degree. During, my early teenage time, I don’t remember that somehow during high school I got into the habit of masturbation. Later, I came to know that masturbation is wrong, and according to bible, it is sinful nature in human flesh, as I got to read in Corinthians. I prayed to god, to forgive me and also get off the habit of masturbation. But still, I cannot get out of this habit. I also watched some videos of porn that never suppose to watch. Whenever, I watched I had tendency to do masturbation. It’s an annoying thing that I wanted to quit the both sinful nature. However, I believe I am able to quit these habit by the grace of god now. Since, I believe as a Christian, it is important to live holy till Christ come to get his church back to heaven, do you have any advices for me ? I need your guidance and please keep me in your prayer. I would like to know any strategies that I can take to improve my Christian life.


Jack Wellman December 2, 2016 at 9:00 am

Hello Saira. Yes, I will pray for you my friend. I would talk with your pastor about how you are struggling and to seek face to face counsel. I can only do it from the Internet. We have written two articles that can probably help you that you need to follow. Here is one: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-overcome-an-addiction-to-pornography-help-for-struggling-christians/ about how to live a holier life and this one on overcoming sin at: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-can-i-overcome-addiction-and-sin-in-my-life/ and I pray these help you brother.


Saira December 2, 2016 at 2:11 pm

Thank you pastor Jack, for giving these websites.. I have one prayer request that I want to work for mission in near future. My mom dedicated I and my sister when we were young for the work of gospel. So, I want you to keep me and my family in your prayers.
And also, if you would give me your email, It is best way to contact.
Thank you so much..


Jack Wellman December 2, 2016 at 3:37 pm

I cannot give my email out in public my friend. Do you not have a pastor at all? Or do you not have a church home? I wish I could be there for you sir.


Saira December 2, 2016 at 1:25 pm

I meant Pr. Jack so sorry to misspell it.


Jack Wellman December 2, 2016 at 1:53 pm

No problem my friend. I knew what you meant. Thank you so much.


Ryan February 7, 2017 at 11:38 pm

Hi. I saw this and thought id ask this question, as its been troubling me. The bible says the things you just said, but it also says that fornicators and drunkards and liars and other things will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. this confuses me. can you shed some light on this?


Jack Wellman February 8, 2017 at 8:16 am

Hello Ryan and thank you for your question. Those who live in sexual immorality and drunkenness and lying are those who are not saved and they go to the lake of fire (Rev 21:8), but when we enter the kingdom of God, everything changes in the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:1-6). No sinners can enter the kingdom and it has nothing to do with having sex or not. Did you this help you sir?


Chip February 14, 2017 at 8:22 am

Totally agree also…


Benjamin Kastberg July 1, 2017 at 2:45 pm

I see why you would be concerned with the “no sex in heaven” statement, and I don’t have the answer. But I have to agree with Jack here, as I can’t see, why there should be sex in heaven, as all things indicate that sex was purely made, in the beginning, to procreate and create intimacy between man and woman. This is no longer needed in Heaven, as we are together with God and gets our intimacy fulfilled through God’s presence.

Even though I know it is unreasonably hard to go without sex until marriage – or your whole life – I don’t think we can ever grasp what joy Heaven will be like. At that time, I don’t think we will miss having sex as there is so much else in Heaven creating a far greater joy to us. For us now – on this Earth – sex is maybe the ultimate pleasure, but this is surely not the case in Heaven.

And also remember that even though you never get to have sex, I don’t think you will feel bad about it or feel like you missed out, when you get to Heaven, as you can only feel joy and no suffering.

So my advice to you is, be the best you can be NOW, on this Earth! Be the most wonderful man, you can be and then I’m sure you will attract a beautiful wife that you will get to marry and have amazing sex – gifted by God! 🙂


Jonathan Dahlin November 13, 2020 at 12:52 pm

Can’t there be sex and romance just simply for the purpose of pleasure and not for procreation? Why not?
Considering Luke 6:20-21, why doesn’t God say and do “Blessed are you who are single now and really want to get married and have sex, for you will have the finest spouse and best romance” or something like that? I’m not saying God should specifically say that in that Luke verse, but why doesn’t he say that either in that verse or elsewhere? More importantly, why doesn’t God do that?


Jeff July 25, 2017 at 9:33 pm

I have a 17 year old foster daughter who has been abused every way possible. She came to live with this year and was going to church with us. After she heard what God did with the flood she stopped going and does not want to go back. I don’t believe the answer is to force her. She needs to come to Christ in her Heart. How can I lead her there?


Denise September 21, 2017 at 3:33 am

I’m young and always wanted a family. I believe in God 100% but I’m scared he’ll come before I get to have kids. I want to experience that before he comes if we can’t have families or love my future husband in heaven. This Is the first time I looked up this subject and it actually makes me sad that we can’t love the way we did before


Christine January 14, 2018 at 5:53 am

Looking forward to it!! Never understood why people are addicted to procreating.


Jonathan Dahlin March 6, 2018 at 5:47 pm

But there was no death in the Garden of Eden, and yet Adam and Eve were married, no? So what does death have to do with this? Why didn’t God make Adam and Eve like the Angels then? Why didn’t God just make it like heaven? And doesn’t the Bible say that everything in Heaven will be like the garden of Eden, or did I misinterpret a verse?
I’m going to miss marriage in heaven, so I’ll never have it if I don’t have it on Earth. There’s a lot of trouble with love and sex on earth. Stress, not having an easy time finding a nice, beautiful girl, having rejections. And that’s not fixed when we go to heaven, it’s just gone. Any better way I could explain it?
I just want to find a nice, beautiful girl and have kisses on the cheek and possibly on the lips.
Why is marriage and sex the only part of God’s creation that God doesn’t redeem?
In the Garden of Eden, I wish Eve just forged a weapon and KILLED the serpent! What do you think?
Any way you could help?
I typed this from my tablet.


Jack Wellman March 6, 2018 at 6:20 pm

Hello Mr. Dahlin. I don’t know all the answers to these questions. Jesus said some made themselves enuchs for the kingdom’s sake, others forsook all for Christ and sought Him above all things (Matt 6:33), but I do know God uses evil for good (Gen 50:20). Just look at the cross. That certainly wasn’t fair to Jesus, but He died for us while we were ungodly and wicked enemies of God (Rom 5:6-10), so isn’t that worth everything? I am sorry you are hurting. I can’t imagine your pain. Praying for you now sir to find a godly woman.


Jonathan Dahlin August 24, 2018 at 5:19 pm

I can’t find a good girl. I fear I’ll have to go without one, forever.
Also, girls’ and boys sexual features like hormones not the way I would like them to be (including but not limited to women’s sexual peak being considerably later than men’s whereas I would rather have it be a little before) and girls not being the ones quick to kiss. I might have forgotten some other things.
Since sex and romance, attraction, are a pain for the world… The trouble it caused… Now I’m thinking that as long as there is no sex in heaven, we will never have to worry that such painful sexuality ever existed.
I might have taken things wrongly, or there’s more than meets the eye. I know there are some things about God and his creation that the Bible is not telling us. Some things it would be nice for us to know. It’s just the more important this that the Bible tells us. The Bible is finite.
Again, I typed this on my tablet. I forgot… Sorry if there are any typos, not that there are.


Jonathan October 6, 2018 at 5:38 pm

No reply?
Will we be asexual in heaven, rather than heterosexual?
I’d rather be asexual in this world and have no sex drive at all.
Sometimes I think “I hate sex. I hate romance.” Renouncing marriage and sex.
Love, touching, hugs, and kisses are just bland if it’s all between same gender and not opposite gender, wouldn’t you say?
I stumbled onto Sam Storms’ book “Tough topics” and looked at the text about the question “will there be sex in heaven?” And it said things I didn’t see coming, and I was overwhelmed.
While monogamy is a thing of the mortal life, it won’t be that way in heaven. I won’t have to be tied to a single woman for eternity. Panagamy? You know what that means.
We also won’t have to be heterosexual. Homosexuality or bisexuality won’t be a problem.
Maybe some things we have to be married to do with the opposite sex we won’t have to be married to do in heaven.
Will God fill our heart for romance? Have you heard of that book I mentioned? I don’t suppose you read it.
FYI I don’t care for sex. I only want kisses with beautiful girls.
Also FYI I never ask God rhetorical questions. They always expect answers from him. Even if it’s like “What’s so wrong with X?” It still expects an answer. I say to God “I don’t want judgement, Lord I want answers!”
Where are there sites to ask Christian questions including open-ended ones?


Jack Wellman October 6, 2018 at 5:50 pm

Hello Jonathan. This is a site to answer “open-ended” questions, but there are limited reponsed due to time and circumstances. Mr. Storm’s book might be interesting, but unless it is supported by Scripture, it is of man-made orgin, and so there will be no objective facts in human opinion, but Jesus said we will be like the angels in heaven, who do not procreate, and Jesus cannot lie since He is God, so I will go with Jesus over Mr. Storm or your opinion. Kissing girls will be nothing compared to being in the presence of God. PS, and yes, I did answer your message and I did reply, so you were wrong in saying I did not sir. Thank you for your comment, but there is no marriage in heaven. That’s the biblical truth. Mr. Sam’s? Who knows?


Jonathan October 6, 2018 at 6:02 pm

I didn’t see any comment from you. That’s why I thought you did not reply.
If that is so then why did God make marriage and sex a pleasure if the only reason to marry and have sex in the first place is to procreate? Why did God ever give us this pleasure?
Also, just because we get something greater doesn’t necessarily mean we have to abandon lesser things (like romance, hugs, and kisses).
I simply can’t go about with God if I don’t get anything else at all.
True soldiers of Christ? I can’t give up marriage and sexuality, but I can give up other things.
Will God fill my heart for romance if I don’t get it filled on Earth?
I’d like to leave this earth, forget sexuality. Never have to worry that such pain ever existed.

Bobt1234 September 2, 2018 at 6:04 pm

I’m sorry, but this whole “there is no ‘need’ for marriage in heaven” because there are “no children in heaven” is very upsetting to most people who are HONEST with themselves. Not everybody was an over-achiever who graduated with honors at 22, married the cheerleader on the football team and lived in a house with a white picket fence, their five children and a dog. Some people got married late in life, never got married, married but never had children, married but had children far apart in age, etc…. Others got married and had kids but the demands of career and job took them away from their families for most of their young family life. The list goes on and on…. For God to just pull the rug out from under them, and say, “There’s no marriage in heaven because it’s ‘not needed'” is a slap in the face to these people. It’s telling them that they will never, in eternity, have the desire that was denied to them on earth! It’s like putting a healed blind man in a pitch black room and saying, ‘you can see now’.


Jack Wellman September 2, 2018 at 6:24 pm

Hello friend. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is Who we are to marry at the arrival of the Kingdom and we will sit with Him at the marriage feast of the Lamb of God (Rev.) God is just in all He does. This is not a slap in the face of people. God speaks and that is the truth. Jesus Himself is the highest goal and His righteousness (Matt 6:33) and not getting or being married and having children. The Book of Revelation 21 and 22 should make that clear to you sir. Thank you for your comment, but you could not be more wrong.


Jonathan Dahlin November 13, 2020 at 12:48 pm

Jesus is nothing like girls though. He’s male. Same-sex.


Jonathan Dahlin November 13, 2020 at 12:49 pm

Jesus is nothing like girls though. He’s male. Same-sex. Guys and girls appreciate each other for being opposite.


Jonathan Dahlin September 9, 2021 at 2:21 pm

Jesus won’t be married to individual believers. He will be married to the church as a body; He has only one bride.


Jack Wellman September 10, 2021 at 10:56 am

That’s what the Bible teaches. He marries the Church after His second coming.


Eric December 13, 2018 at 12:07 pm

The information in this link, from scholars who have studied the contexts of these passages, instead of just assuming the meaning, is very much needed to be known for those who feel a sense of dread believing there will be no more intimacy of a sexual kind, a desire much greater in us than eating food, which also would be unnecessary for an immortal.


Jack Wellman December 13, 2018 at 3:03 pm

Hello Eric. I read the reply, and besides a typo or so, but there will be no marriage in heaven for the resurrected, although their relationship will continue, but those unmarried like the others, are wed to Christ as we are betrothed to Him today. If believer “feel a sense of dread believing there will be no more intimacy of a sexual kind,” then they are missing the point! Is Jesus most precious to them or is their “”desire that’s “much greater in us than eating food.” Jesus satisfys forever…sex is temporary satisfaction. Let our focus be on Christ and not “dreading” there being no sex in heaven.


Eric December 13, 2018 at 9:35 pm

I noticed I didn’t actually put the link that I meant to in my comment.
N.T. Wright and Ben Witherington explain the evidence that the idea of no marriage in heaven is overly simplistic, and Jesus is referring to levirate marriage only, not the state of being married. There was no death in Eden, when everything was perfect, and God instituted marriage then. They were in Gods presence and that didn’t make marriage something God deemed unnecessary, and this is the state that everything is being restored to in the new heaven and earth.


Jack Wellman December 13, 2018 at 9:37 pm

Thank you.


Jonathan Dahlin February 12, 2020 at 7:51 pm

In heaven, will there still be interpersonal fellowship, intimacy, love, sharing, growth, nurturing, and spiritual fellowship like was associated with Earthly marriage?

Will I have as close relationship to and intimacy with a person (same or opposite gender) in heaven as a person on Earth has to his/her spouse, even if I don’t get married here on Earth?

Could Earthly marriage compare to the marriage of the Lamb the way a teaser trailer is to a movie?

Just because something is not needed in heaven doesn’t mean there’s no pleasure in it, does it?

I don’t know of any substitute/alternative to sex (e.g. that gives similar pleasure).

Will we be celestially castrated in heaven?

Wouldn’t things in this world be much easier if we weren’t susceptible to sexual arousal?
In an imperfect world that would sure be the case because of the pain and suffering that’s involved. In a perfect world (heaven or earth) on the other hand… There’s neither pain nor suffering.


Jonathan Dahlin November 4, 2020 at 8:38 am

Can you please comment on https://leewoof.org/2015/08/31/can-you-fall-in-love-in-heaven-if-you-havent-found-someone-on-earth/#comment-119834
Read the post, then give your dispute. Tell Lee Woofenden what you think.
Also, that site is a Swedenborgian site.
Don’t trust Swedenborg! He says that all idols are real Gods.


Jack Wellman November 4, 2020 at 11:55 am

Hello Mr. Dahlin. I read the article about falling in love with someone if you didn’t on their lifetime is so far off base, it would do no good to enter into Scriptural reasons. Obviously they have ignored what the Bible teaches that there will be no marriages in heaven. The church marries the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. Our greatest passion and desire should be to see our Lord in Person, not to have a human relationship fulfilled. That article is so far off base that the author needs prayer for they are not teaching what is found in the Word of God…it’s the words of man they write.


Jonathan Dahlin November 4, 2020 at 12:58 pm

Please post a comment in the comment section of that site.

Did God originally intend for the propogation of the human race to end, had the fall of sin not occurred? Or did he originally intend for humans to “be fruitful and multiply” onto eternity?

Is there part of God’s original perfect creative design that God cannot restore?

Jesus is nothing like girls. He’s male. He’d be same sex. Or is that a misconception? Is Jesus as different from men as from women?

I appreciate the opposite sex for being opposite.

I don’t have time to give any more sentences. Have to go to class.


Jonathan Dahlin February 5, 2021 at 11:17 am

Do you believe what they say? I know Peter Kreeft is mixing up sex and gender. What do you think about them.


Jack Wellman February 5, 2021 at 12:41 pm

Jesus said angels are neither male or female, and that means they cannot reproduce. No records exists in Scripture where sex is mentioned to happen in heaven or angels having sex. Jesus said no marriage or sex in heaven and I believe Him. Married couples may still work together or be close in their relationship, but marriage as we know it, will not happen to the children of God after Jesus rules the earth and we are changed.


Jonathan Dahlin October 21, 2021 at 12:30 pm

Please answer this question: Will sexual desire be fulfilled one way or another in heaven? I can’t find an answer like that on the Internet. Do you trust Sam Storms, Peter Kreeft, and Randy Alcorn?


Jack Wellman June 2, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Zack, I am overwhelmed and when I read your comment, I fell on my face before our God and prayed for you that God might strengthen you at the very moments you are resisting temptation. To me this is exceedingly strong evidence that you a Christian for sure because no one in the world cares but the very fact that you are fighting this temptation is a great sign and solid evidence that God is changing you into the image of His Son and our Lord, Jesus Christ. My brother, I am no better than you, I too face fierce temptations from the Enemy and I must daily run to my strong tower but if I can encourage you, I am glad. If I have any glory [in heaven] we know that all credit is to Him alone for He is glorified because I could do nothing of myself and if not for the Holy Spirit, what good would I be? So ultimately, He is glorified by this work here for what do I have that I have not received? The answer is “0” but all to my Hero, Jesus Christ. Getting knocked down is okay because we can only then have one way to look…and that is up! I covet such men of God like you in the tiny little church I am the under-shepherd of to the Great Shepherd.


Zack June 2, 2014 at 6:34 pm

Well, I really do appreciate that, Jack! I can’t fathom that you’d have such a strong reaction, and it shows me I need to have the same compassion and desire to pray for others when they are in need, which I feel can be easy for me to overlook. You are encouragement and health to my bones and God speaks through you to inspire and fortify the faith in others. God Bless you, Jack, I will pray for your battles, and you will most likely see me in other articles in the near future!


Jack Wellman June 2, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Great news Zack…the Old Testament word for “worship” actually means to “touch the head to the earth.” Doesn’t that gives us a vivid picture of how we should pray and worship God…literally on our face, prostate before His Holiness. Oh, what a glorious God we worship and worthy of every bit of it. No wonder the word holy means “weighty, heavy” and this weight of His glory needs to push me downward on my face in humility. I do have an article on overcoming sin at: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-can-i-overcome-addiction-and-sin-in-my-life/ and on how to overcome pornography, although you don’t have that problem but both men and women of the battle in the mind. Pleased to have you visit any of our articles brother. Here is the one of sexual battles of the mind at: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-overcome-an-addiction-to-pornography-help-for-struggling-christians/


Jack Wellman June 2, 2014 at 6:44 pm

Zack, I should have been more specific…the Hebrew word for worship is “shachah” and literally means “to bow down, to depress, to bow down, prostrate oneself.”


Jack Wellman September 4, 2017 at 10:12 am

Hello Mr. Dahlin. You are so right sir…we must warn them to flee from the wrath of God. It is what we must do for our brothers and sisters in Christ. And, yes, God doesn’t send anyone to hell…they send themselves there by rejecting Christ. Thank you for your comment sir.


Jack Wellman December 16, 2017 at 7:38 pm

Hello Jonathan. I think Jesus spoke hard words were to hard hearts like the Jewish religious leaders but spoke softely or soft words to people who were already broken from life and needed soft words of assurance. That’s what I meant sir. Thank you.


Jack Wellman December 7, 2017 at 7:11 pm

What do you think? Those things we cannot know until we get to heaven. As for children, those who die early may come back at the optimum age (some say) at age 30. We don’t need to procreate in heaven do we?


Anonymous June 23, 2018 at 5:20 pm

“We don’t need to procreate in heaven do we?”

By that same logic, I might as well decline the Heavenly food, too. After all, I won’t need to eat in Heaven, either, will I?


Jonathan Dahlin February 12, 2020 at 7:58 pm
Jack Wellman June 23, 2018 at 5:51 pm

Jesus Himself will serve the members of His Body at the great Marriage Feast of the Lamb of God and after Jesus was raised, He ate and drank, and so will we. Why do we need to procreate in heaven when Jesus is all we need! We will reign and rule with Him. I am sorry you don’t look forward to heaven.


Anonymous March 6, 2019 at 8:18 pm

That’s not entirely true.

I do look forward to it — in the context of preferring a lifeboat over a sinking ship (the “sinking ship” here being Hell, of course).

And yes, I’ve accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior.


Jack Wellman March 6, 2019 at 8:50 pm

Hello Anonymous. And thank you for your comment. It sounds like you’ve gone thru a lot of pain in your life. I am sorry that you have, if this is true. I will pray for you sir or maa’m. If you look forward more to having sex than serving with Christ, and He is most precious (Matt 6:33), then I believe you have your eyes more on the physical than the spiritual. Being in Jesus’ presence cannot be compared with anything here on this earth my friend. I am glad you have repented and trusted in Christ.


Jack Wellman February 12, 2020 at 8:05 pm

Hello Mr. Dahlin. Thank you for the article recommendations sir, and they are both solid, but there is no actual biblical evidence to say there is or will be sex in heaven or the New Jerusalem. The link/article you used from Got Questions doesn’t even address your issue. A better one is from the site you recommend but is specific: Will there be sex in heaven? In Matthew 22, the Sadducees, in an attempt to discredit Jesus, came to Him with a question regarding marriage and the resurrection. Jesus answered them with these words: “At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven” (verse 30). Jesus teaches here that marriage is a relationship to be enjoyed in this life, but it will not carry forward into the next life. While we do not lose our identity in heaven (Luke 16:23), we will not hold the same relationships that we do on earth. Our existence will be quite different from what we are used to here. The fact that there is no marriage in heaven implies at least two other things: 1) There will be no procreation in heaven; the number of the redeemed is set, and, with no death, there will be no need to propagate the race since believers will have eternal life. 2) There will be no sexual intercourse in heaven. The appetites and desires of this world will give way to higher and infinitely more gratifying delights in the world to come like being the presence of and service of God. Do you trust this answer?

For more, read this: https://www.gotquestions.org/sex-heaven.html


Jack Wellman September 10, 2021 at 10:59 am

Because we are not called to debate or defend or rebuke unbelievers and posts that are contrary to Scripture unless they are in the church and this is not what Jesus called us to do (Matt 25:35-36; 28:18-20) so you are ignoring your calling while casting pearls before swine.

Friend, your reply that “I simply can’t go about with God if I don’t get anything else at all” shows me that you are more interested in physical or plesasurable things than in putting Christ first and seeking His righteousness first, which is the priority for us all (Matt 6:33). I think your heart will be so filled with joy at being with Christ that all things will pale in comparison. God did not make sex just to have children but for us to enjoy, but only within marriage. I do believe hugs and kisses will still be existing, for sure, but sex, it does not seem so since we are like the angels in that we do not marry or give in marriage. Have you discussed these things with your pastor? Call him. Sit down with him and talk, face to face. You can learn more in person with someone who knows the Bible than a book or by commenting and asking questions, although I will do my best to answer questions.

I believe you. I should place Christ first.
If we should place trust in God first, then what’s the point of pleasurable things that are not God himself? I’ve been told that God wants us to enjoy these things.
As long as God gives me “everything,” he’s great.
