Forgiveness In Heaven

If someone we know is holding a grudge against us, I mean a deep rooted root of bitterness grudge against us and they die and go to heaven. Will they associate with us in heaven? Will they forgive us once they're in heaven?

Heaven is a perfect place, it is a place without any sin. If this person has trusted Christ as his/her own personal Saviour and therefor will be in Heaven with you one day.... their sin won't be going with them. So as I see it, there won't be a grudge being held, bitterness towards anyone at all, and no need for forgiveness AFTER you are already in Heaven.. because there won't be sin happening there!

Holding grudges is not a fruit of the Spirit. If this person was not manifesting fruit and forgiveness there is little guarantee they are in heaven, scripturaly speaking of course.

I believe we will not all be forgiven UNLESS we repent and confess our sins before we die. "IF we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Have you ever tried to get a grudge bearer with a root of bitterness to confess their sin? It's like trying to take a steak bone away from a dog.

They won't be in heaven, because their heart wouldn't be pure. A person can't hold a grudge against someone and expect God to be okay with it. The bible tells us not to hold grudges Lev 19:18, James 5:9 tells us not to hold a grudge against anyone and we will be judged. We are told to love one another fervently Pet 1:22. If a person has a grudge against you, they are loving you as they should and they will be judge by God.

(2.) The Word states that if we don't Forgive, we will not be Forgiven. --Mrs. Morgan

Somebody that dies with a Deep Rooted Grudge won't go to Heaven. The Bible says so. We are to Surrender All of that to God. If we are struggling, we are to ask God for help, say it's too much for me Lord,I don't want it,I'm struggling please help! I surrender it to You Lord, and then leave it at the alter and close the case. --Mrs.Morgan

Yes. All will be forgiven. With all the Glory that is in heaven, "spiritual bodies", the perspective we will gain in the prescense of Jesus..., who could possibly be so petty as to hold a grudge over earthly mis-deeds!

I think--not as part of my belief--that if there is the LEAST beginning of a desire to WANT to forgive, God has all eternity to work on it, if we will let Him.

The danger comes, I think, when a person refuses to forgive.

Marie, this person is living with a man in fornication, so I'm not so sure she's trusted Christ as her own personal Savior. He's certainly not Lord of her life, there isn't any fruit of the spirit in her life, she's in sin, but because she believes that Jesus is the Son of God, and said the sinners prayer years ago, I do believe she's going to be in heaven when she dies.

Wow, that's a rather involved issue now, isn't it? As for association in heaven, I'm not sure if we will recognize eachother as the relative or friend here on earth, or if we will all just know eachother on an equal plane. As to the second part of that question, we are to become new once we get there, and we know that darkness and light will not coexist, therefore I am leaning towards yes, it will be forgiven, possibly even forgotten.

greetings,the "pure in heart" shall see appears that without learning to forgive and vengance remains in the heart,this person may be in dier straits.john zebedee watched new arrivals enter into heaven and he stated that their tears were wiped from their is true that we must forgive our neighbor if we are to be forgiven.
