Holy Spirit Interactive Kids: Questions Children Ask: When I Die, Will I Become An Angel?

When I Die, Will I Become An Angel?

Angels are spiritual beings created by God. They are different from human beings. You are a spiritual being, too. In other words, you have a soul and will live forever and can know God. But you are also a physical being. You live on earth and have a physical body. When you die, you will leave your physical body behind and will be given a glorified or perfect body in heaven. We don't know exactly what our glorified bodies will be like, but we know that people in heaven will be able to recognize us. One thing is for sure, we don't become angels when we die. In fact, angels will serve us in heaven. Wow!

Key Verse

Don't you know that we will judge the angels in Heaven? You should be able to decide your problems here on earth easily enough. (1 Corinthians 6:3)
