Will There Be Animals In Heaven? What About My Pets?

Yes! Have you had a Pet that has meant a lot to you? A dog, cat, bird, hamster, rabbit, horse . . . I believe we will have out pets with us in Heaven, or on the New Earth, heres why.

Animals have always been an important part of Gods creation, from the time He first made Man. He put animals in the garden with Adam and Eve to keep them company. God made animals to be our friends, and He cares about them even more than we do. God says that not a single bird can fall to the ground without Him knowing it, Matthew 10:29.

Can you imagine a world without animals? No Birds in the sky, or building a nest in the trees? No Dogs in the yard, or Horses in the pastures? My home in Heaven just wouldnt be complete without my cat sleeping on the sofa! Well, the Bible tells us that there will be Animals living with us on the New Earth!

Romans 8:20-21 Says

Against its will, all creation was subjected to Gods curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join Gods children in glorious freedom from death and decay.

This tells me that ALL Gods creation, including animals, are looking forward to the day when God makes the Earth New again, and we can all live without death or hurt or anything rotting away!

The bible also says,

The wolf and the lamb will live together;

The leopard will lie down with the baby goat.

The calf and the yearling

Will be safe with the lion,

And a little child will lead them all.

Isaiah 11:6

And Also,

The wolf and the lamb will feed together.

The lion will eat hay like a cow.
But the snakes will eat dust.

In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed.

Isaiah 65:25

The Bible has many other places where it talks about animals in Heaven, but I think you can see from this that not only will they be there, but we will be friends with them.

Maybe your family hasnever been able to have a pet, the building where you live wont let you keep one, or someone in your family is allergic to them, well in Heaven you wont have to worry about that, and you may have the pet youve always wanted!

Just think, have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride on the back of a lion?! Or pet a polar bear?! Or run through a field with a pack of zebras?! Well someday, you may just do that!
