Bible Q & A

Q. It has been stated that God plans to expand His family for eternity by adding sons and daughters.  Will God do this by spiritual creation as He created the angels, or is this given for us to know (I Cor. 2:9)?
 
A. The concept that God will continue to expand His family for eternity is a very logical inference drawn from Isaiah 9:7, a prophecy of Christ which states:  “Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be now end . . . .”

Some have speculated that when we are immortal spirit beings, sons of God in His family, we will have a part in extending God’s Kingdom throughout the universe.  Perhaps God will create other human beings on other planets in the universe who will then be afforded an opportunity to become members of God’s family as we were.  Detailed specifics about the next life are few and far between in the Bible, but we are promised:  “. . . I make all things new” (Rev.21:5).
