How can it be said that my loved one is now with our Father in heaven when the Bible tells no one sees heaven until the rapture?

Immediately upon belief we are spiritually protected and hidden "in Christ" and therefore "in heaven" now (2 Cor 12:2). We just cannot see this yet. We who are still living when Christ returns in the clouds will be given new incorruptible glorified bodies (1 Cor 15:51-54). We will then be "caught away" with those currently "dead in Christ" (1 Thes 4:16-17), but who will have also already received their new (resurrected) bodies just prior to the living receiving theirs. We will at that time be able to then realize (see) our heavenly realm and all who reside within it (1 Thes 4:18).
