What is sex like in heaven, I wondered with my wife this morning. For a moment I looked into her eyes and, slightly surprised, she looked into mine…
Someone in our Bethel, Redding home group had given us a CD of the pink-haired Kat Kerr speaking in some detail what she claims to have seen of heaven. Much of it seems plausible to me, and nothing screamed heresy. one of her ideas is that married people in heaven are not in the same exclusive relationship, but live next-door, all the while remembering past relationships, and enjoying them in some special way even in heaven.
So I was saying to my wife that I think exchanges in Heaven are not so constrained to our four dimensions. In the same way, I think that language is not transmitted by sound vibrations, but by much higher frequencies, perhaps more resembling the waves of energy that science is measuring as emanating from our brains, our thoughts.
The nature of exchanges, whether for communication or sexual intercourse, will likely be more subtle, fine, or delicate. In the same way as we can imagine living in a two-dimensional world and trying to understand a three-dimensional world, we can think of trying to communicate verbally underwater, and then in an air environment. If you’ve ever tried to communicate underwater, you know immediately how unclear words are, and how difficult to talk or hear it is. Moving from a liquid to a gas environment, we obviously gain clarity and ease, and eliminate noise, which is defined as anything that impedes communication. In a similar way, from earth to heaven, all things will surely be transformed into something sweeter, clearer, more intense, and more pure. Purity always reduces noxious byproducts.
Now try to imagine communicating in another medium yet. This time, we have more of a challenge, as we have to imagine communication in another dimension (See Dimensions 1 – Heavenly Coordinates). Mostly we’re aware of the four time-space dimensions we inhabit and are aware of. But scientists now believe there are as many as ten dimensions. More probably, there are many more than ten, who knows. In any case, communicating may give way to communing, or communion.
When Jesus had communion with the disciples, reclining around the Passover table, wasn’t He inviting us to a deeper communication? Thus, communion! Wasn’t He inviting us to partake of a moment where God Himself touched us in a very intimate way? Truly, Jesus brought together man and God in his own body. This is the meaning of incarnation. The Spirit of God impregnated the human Mary with a sperm from another dimension and Jesus was born. Now He impregnates us with His living word
Surely, one of his purposes was to make it possible for man to taste Heaven on earth.
Jesus , and John the Baptist, before Him, repeated, “the kingdom is here”1. In my translation, I could express this, “the dimensional realm of heaven has invaded your four-dimensional world; feel it, taste it, partake of it, become more like it”.
So then, what would sex be like in the dimensional realm of heaven? For one thing, there would be no counter-indications, medical, emotional or otherwise. No unwanted pregnancies, STDs, or AIDS. There would be no shame or remorse after sex outside marriage. There would be no emotional pain of rejection when he doesn’t call or she’s always busy.
I looked into her eyes, and she looked back into mine. It lasted perhaps 30 seconds, as she headed for the car, and I for my office. But something wonderful happened. Perhaps a subtler exchange. I felt a love stirring inside me. And Oops, I also felt another stirring of a lower wavelength… And as I recall that short but magic moment, I finally realize that Ann has beautiful blue eyes! Until now, I could never remember people’s eye color. Of course, after 35 years together I learned that she had blue eyes. But now her eyes are emblazoned in my soul. I’m hoping to get lucky tonight, and stare deeply into her eyes one more time.
