No introductions were necessary when Peter, James and John came face to face with Moses and Elijah on “the holy mount.” They recognized the heavenly visitants on sight! Likewise . . . the “rich man” in Hades knew and called Abraham by name, though he had never seen him while on earth. If living humans have been known to recognize departed saints, and if a sinner in perdition has been able to identify the soul of a righteous man he never saw before, we shall undoubtedly know more, far more, when we are glorified, than now—not less than mortals on earth and the lost in hell!
