There would be no point in these words of consolation [in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18] if they did not imply the mutual recognition of saints. The hope with which he cheers wearied Christians is the hope of meeting their beloved friends again. . . . But in the moment that we who are saved shall meet our several friends in heaven, we shall at once know them, and they will at once know us.
~ J. C. Ryle, [Heaven]
