When we get to heaven, will we be able to see our miscarried babies?


Revelation 21:1

ESV - 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

Hi Anonymous,

There are many scriptures that point to the fact that humans have a soul from the moment of their conception. 

There are all sorts of reasons for having a miscarriage, but underneath all the reasons lies the foundation of the fall of Adam, and all of mankind inheriting a sinful nature.

So, am I hinting that babies who die or miscarriages are sinners and do not go to heaven because they have not accepted the Lord? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Mom's who have been through this (and dad's who should be supportive) need to stand on the scripture and it's descriptions of Jesus' love of children and their innocence, and then after that for extra support, rest on the opinion of all the major Christian denominations as well as Hebrew teaching that children are not able to make (therefore not accountable) an educated decision until a certain age, usually around 12 or 13.

So, absolutely yes, you will see and hug your unborn child, and there will be no birth defects or what not.

But remember also that our "hope" is not heaven, but a resurrected body on a new and perfect earth, with the everpresent most high God to answer all our questions.

You're just passing through here!

The bigger question would be what happens to those that die through miscarriages. Or after birth. Or those babies that die before reaching the age of reasoning. Or those who have been born without the ability to reason. Or those who have not heard the Gospel of Christ. What happens to all of those?

We have the account of David and his son who was only four days old when he died. David said to his servants that when his son died he could not bring him back, but he knew one day he would be with him again.

2 Samuel 12: 23: But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

So we see that David’s child was not at the age of reasoning, but yet one day David would join him. All your questions can be answered if the Lord will give you the understanding of the Book of Life.
