Well the Word states the following

1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not appear what we shalt be, but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Now I'm not sure how to interpret this in entirety. The Word does go on to state that there will be those who are greater in heaven and those who are least in heaven. My thought process would be, that the verse above means that we will be in perfect oneness of mind body and soul with him, without having any reminence of sin within us. So I don't think this means we will be "gods" ourselves, but it does mean that we will be like him in spiritual character, as oppossed to being characterized by the sinful nature.

Well our eyes will be rotting in a grave here on earth somewhere so whatever we look like we will not be able to see each other anyway will we?

Perhaps we will look like what we look like on the inside.

those in heaven, or going to heaven, or coming back with Jesus from heaven lay this way in the bible concerning a life of resurrection/heaven;

Jesus is responding to a question pretty much just like yours. here is what Jesus said;

matt.22:25-29

25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. 27 And last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.




o'tay enough for now........

RE what will we look like? speculation
looks will be far less important than now.
your state of being will become paramount.
