Will there be eating and drinking in heaven?

download (1)Hello O,

Thank you for contacting ProofDirectory.

Some teach that the redeemed will be spiritual beings that don’t eat or drink in heaven. They base their belief on Revelation 7:16 that says, “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore.” But the scriptures clearly teach that God’s earthly creation will certainly eat and drink in Heaven:

1- “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God” (Revelation 19:9).

2- “And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the  days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands” (Isaiah 65:21,22).

3- “But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom” (Matthew 26:29).

4- “I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven” ( Matthew 8:11).

5- “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!” (Luke 14:15).

6- “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2).

Even the animals will eat in heaven “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

In His service,
