Will our beloved pets share eternity with us? It’s a question near and dear to my heart as well as millions of other folks.
I have two manuscripts going on the topic but neither has been “cleared” yet for takeoff. There are numerous scriptures that must be considered when searching for an answer to the question of animals in heaven.
“For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits…”
“Creation was subject to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope”
“Creation itself will also be delivered from the bondage of corruption”
These quotes are taken from Romans 8:15-25. Animals were created before man and are a major part of the creation. Scripture addresses eternity using the phrase, “all flesh” many times.
What do you think? What has God laid on your heart about the future of animals? Is there a different path for dogs, horses, cats, or other critters that shared their love with a special person and animals who never knew relationship with a human?
Is it possible that animals could be elevated into eternal life in the same way people are; through relationship with the one who has dominion over them?
- Do animals have a soul?
- It they have souls, are they immortal?
- If animals have immortal souls, will they share heaven with us? Will some of them – all of them?
What questions do you have? What answers, what opinions, what scriptures?
