Will we know the answers to the questions we currently have about God when we get to heaven?

When we will be in heaven, will we automatically (or gradually) have the answers to all the questions that we currently have on the Bible, Jesus, God, etc.?

A lot of the answers to the questions we currently have on the Bible, as complete as we wish they'd be, are still incomplete because we don't fully understand God's will and His plan (Isaiah 55:8).

So in Heaven, will we understand God's will? (ex: why he allowed event X, why "everything" happened, etc.)?

What will be our knowledge in heaven?

Isaiah 55:8

DARBY - 8 Car mes pensées ne sont pas vos pensées, et vos voies ne sont pas mes voies, dit l'Éternel:

No one will ask "why?" in Heaven. None of us will suddenly receive answers to all our questions in this and similar forums. No one will be told, "Your answer was wrong!" None of that is going to happen.God fully understands His Plan. God is overseeing His Plan "even as we speak." In Heaven, there will be no more "plan." God's will, will be instanteous. No one will have to ask "What is God's will?" His knowledge will be our own. No one will recall the negative events of life on earth. No one will question God. We will live in perfect peace, perfect harmony, forever.

Scripture doesn't exactly address your question, however I think we can make some reasonable assumptions. I doubt we will instantly have perfect knowledge, but certainly we will gain a much greater understanding of God and His purposes. 

God is an infinite, eternal, and maximally perfect being. As such, we are inherently and necessarily "less" than God. I think that even in Heaven we will continue to learn and love God more and more on a daily basis.

As for understanding Scripture more clearly and having specific questions regarding the Bible answered - I suspect knowledge like that we will either be able to discern, or I'm sure we can find out fairly easily.
