Standing In The Way. Follow Up

Q. In your recent article Standing In The Way you said 1 John 3:2 means it’s impossible to know in any detail the kind of life we’ll be living after the rapture. You said all we know for sure is that it’s beyond our imagining, and quoted Paul as saying, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Cor. 2:9). If you would continue reading you would see that verse 10 says “God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.” We do know what God has prepared for us, though not fully, to be sure. I agree that it is beyond our imagination. But he has revealed it.

A. I have read 1 Cor. 2:10 many times. But if it applies to the kind of life we’ll be living after the rapture then it contradicts verses 8-9. And since no one on Earth can describe our post rapture life in detail, I’ve concluded that verse 10 must mean that God has revealed to us through His Spirit that He has prepared a glorious life for us after the rapture, but has not disclosed the details concerning that life. We have to accept by faith that it will surpass our wildest expectations, which is the point I was making.
