What Will We Eat in Heaven?
This is the question that I posed to one of the classes I taught at camp this past week. I will give you the short version.
So, do you ever think about what Heaven will be like? Or is it just an escape from Hell? Some people have this image that we will sing forever and ever. Not sure where we got that. I have an idea that it came from the creatures in Heaven that sing of God’s holyness 24/7.
But what will we eat?
I propose that we will eat cafeteria style, no one has to be a waiter in Heaven. I also propose that we will eat (this is the meats):
We will eat Barbeque because I think I could eat GOOD Barbeque daily, but mainly because those good jewish folks that were deprived of pork while in this life deserve the chance to enjoy such good food.
Why Quail? Well when the wanderers grew tired of the “what is it” they asked for meat and God sent Quail. So I figure that God must think that Quail is pretty good stuff. He always gives the best you know. And again, I like quail.
Fish. There are a number of interesting stories about Jesus in his resurected state. It seems to me that he somehow looked different. If you read the account at the end of John, they dared not ask him who he was, and he cooks some fish for breakfast. I figure if Jesus choses to cook fish then that would be some GOOD fish. And notice he eats. So, I am assuming if he does, we do.
To the early church this number of fish was significant, it represented all the known nations of the world. It was a reminder or a sign that they were to go into all the nations, all enthnos, all types of people and bring the good news.
We will pick up there next time.
