"NEPHESH"… The hebrew word for soul. Man became a living Nephesh…"SOUL". The same word is used when God creates some domesticated animals that know and understand "love". It amazes me how these guys seem to have all the answers and put the abilities of our great God in a little finite box. Ephesians 3:20 says: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us… and also what happened to, ASK and you shall recieve? If we plead the blood of Jesus Christ upon our loving domesticated furry loved ones, you can't tell me that God can't or won't make them a part of our heaven! So tired of these guys who think they have all the answers sitting in front of a camera telling us their great insight and understanding of Yeshua, the great God of creation. No wonder John the Baptist left his Pharisee upbringing to go into the desert to eat bugs and honey. It was there. and only there that he found "TRUE" wisdom and knowldege in the presence of the Spirit of God which ultimately led him right into the presence of the manifestation of God in the flesh, the lamb… that took away the sins of the world. Can't wait to see Jesus, along with my baby's in the Kingdom of God. Is anything too great for the LORD?

I think that's a judgment call olny Jesus may make and if he does address it no, yes or not at all it's cool, although I have Pets I wish to have their company again in Heaven, I'm willing to share my pets, however I accept Jesus sovereign call on this.

I really appreciate your gracious and loving approach to this very real and raw question. Thank you!

SOLOMON asked who knows if a animal goes up or down (heaven or hell).  But PAUL wrote that we should take care of our beasts because this is the ONLY life they have.

Solomon asked the question.  Paul ANSWERED it.

Worst, God says that He has created things for us that our eyes have NEVER seen, and our ears have NEVER heard, and stuff that has NEVER even entered our dreams.  So, no.  You know cats, dogs, and birds.  What God has in Heaven if far, far, far better!

I don't think our actual pets will be in Heaven. However, the Bible does say that after the Apocalypse, God will restore paradise on Earth.. He will restore the Garden of Eden. Animals were in the Garden of Eden. We may not see our pets, but we may still get to see animals in the end.

I can’t imagine heaven not having animals in it. Animals are beautiful! How would the world be without animals in it? For those who believe that animals do not have a soul, ask yourself this question what does it mean to miss someone? I’m sure many have noticed the excitement animals express when the owners come home. Excitement is emotion. I can honestly say, there are many people out there without souls. And that is particularly true when it comes to atheists. Besides, how can they have a soul, because according to them there is nothing after this life

Keagan,you were taught wrong..animals do have a spirit and can they not..they are living beings.

I think pets will be in heaven because animals never sinned against God only humans… Animals are in heaven!!

Jesus said proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation. I believe the life force that makes our animals alive goes back to God when they die. Nothing can live without God holding it together in love, and giving it breath. I have also seen so many amazing times in my life and others when God has shown his love and the gospel story through animals. I have also heard an amazing very true testimony of a guy who died and felt the presence of Jesus and he said his beloved dog was there.

This is only a question that Americans usually ask because we’ve taken animals and made them family.

Outside of the U.S., even dogs, they are usually expected to work for its human master. You go to a ranch and you’ll see dogs herding, protecting, etc. and when they are no longer useful they are put down. If they can’t produce for the ranch they are useless. The ranch owner does not wonder wether or not the dog is in heaven. He’s too busy training a new dog to do the work.

In other places they eat dogs the same way we eat chickens.

So in America we name our dogs Fluffy and become so attached to them that we have to ask if Fluffy will be in heaven when it dies.

My last dog was named Spike. As much as I️ loved him and cried when he died, there is no biblical evidence that he’s in heaven.

Some people have a deep connection with objects. Ex. I had a model car when I was a child and now its gone. Will I have that model car in Heaven? If not, why not?

Why are you putting importance of one animal over another? Did God do that when He sent 2 of every kind to the Ark?

Thank you for your honest answer, and yet, there was one comment made I feel I need to respond to…. animals did not sin, (that one was on Adam), but with all creation were caught in the consequences and curse of Adam's sin. So, there is no need for any animal to repent and accept Jesus as their Savior. Romans Chapter 8:19-23 states that all creation shall be delivered from the bond of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God, and groans and travails waiting for the adoption, or redemption of our bodies. When I read 'all creation', I can't separate the animals from those verses.

Very weak scriptural analysis, because the fact that I really want my dog in heaven won't put them into heaven, simply because what if I felt heaven wouldn't be complete without my sinner cousin will God allow them into heaven too, just because I couldn't bear them not being there??? No.

Julie Nielsen - posted on January 17, 2018 2:07 am

I don't know if my pets are there in Heaven now. I believe that they are. But, even if they aren't there now, God will create them again for me because that is my desire. I know there are animals in Heaven.

Was isaiah 65 talking about real heaven? Giving birth?? Working? Heaven is eternal, and everything is new, old is forgotten. Please answer directly, and dont give false hope. Pets dont go to heaven.

I have a question I’d love for you guys to make a video about… I’m an atheist and my mother is a Christian. How could my mother be happy and smiling in heaven if her son is burning in hell for all of eternity? I’m sorry but I can’t see heaven or hell much more than just wishful thinking. Let’s just live this one and only life we know of loving one another and enjoying the hell out of it (pun intended)

In the book of Isaiha it states that The lion will lie with the lamb and the kid will play with the bear, and the child will put his hand in the asps nest, and nothing shall hurt in my holy mountain any more. I believe this will happen when Jesus comes to reign as King of Kings in his earthly Kingdom.
I will tell,you a Stange event that happened to me one night in 1996, I was living in the country side of Co. ARMAGH, and went to bed, now I don't take drugs, although I was recovering from cancer 3 years earlier 1993. I went to sleep, and in the middle of the night, I felt I was in a vortex of wind like a tunnel,and I could hear the wind all around me swirling and pulling me up, I, said, I remember well, O I must have died and I am going to see Jesus, the wind pulled me up the tunnel, but half way up that tunnel who was waiting for me but my beloved pony I, had when I was a child, THE PRINCESS, O I was deliously happy, estatic, I said again out loud, O I have got The Princess back, and I am going to see Jesus, I hopped on her back still in the vortex of wind tunnel, and the both of us went right up, I could feel both of us being pulled up, it was not frightening, we came to,a great white light, far brighter than the light of of sun, A voice came out of the white light, and said, Go Back, Go Back, You are here too soon. This next thing I knew I was sitting up in bed looking all round me, to,see where I was . This is exactly what happened I, have not added one word to this story. May God bless you readers, I gave my life to Jesus 50,years ago, and P. S. This pony to me was like a sister I never had. Greetings FROM NORTHERN IRELAND.

Who is more moral than our Maker, are we? No, we are not. If we care about animals, God cares even more. God doesn't even like the abuse of animals, as He spoke through the donkey of Baalam, asking why Baalam was beating him. God is tender-hearted over His creations, even His eyes are on a sparrow. When God makes the whole earth pure, the Bible talks about how the wolf will lay down with a lamb and that a little child will handle a snake…etc… Why would God withhold the good creatures from us that we love? Is God not capable of making room for animals? The breath of life is in animals too, please keyword search that in the Scriptures. Some people have some strange beliefs, even believing that babies who are not baptized go to hell, because they reason that because we are all born in sin, that babies are held accountable too. Yet David when his baby died, acknowledged that when David dies, it was his expectation to see his child again in heaven. God is not immoral and unreasonable. I've heard Calvinist James R. White basically say that if a little girl is raped that is because God wills it to be so. Believing that shows a complete lack of understanding of the Spirit of God, and who the Lord is.

Pastor is talkin about the millennium time of 1000 years when he mention the lion will lay down with the lamb…but I can believe that on the awesome resurrection day all of creation will be resurrected as it has been groaning for..but animals and pets aren't there now but i believe one day their bodies will arise as theory..God bless

Will my pet go to heaven is a serious question only american christians have and can have, rest are concerned about their loved ones, friends, relatives, grandparents, forefathers etc . Serious christians are excited to see paul , peter, moses , abraham , david, elijah and all other saints in heaven. And not to forget GOD HIMSELF!!!

I think that people wonder if their pets, in general, will go to heaven? Do pets go to heaven or do they just stop existing?

I don't think there's anything wrong with loving a pet very much, but if you really can't imagine being happy in heaven without that pet, it's an idol to you and that is wrong. Just like if you can't imagine being happy in heaven without TV, or sports, or video games, those things are probably idols to you.

They won't be there sorry. I love animals but they aren't human and can't accept Christ. You won't need your pet in Heaven.

Sorry to burst your bubbles but, it's a DOG for pete's sake! People eat dog's in other parts of the world. What about pet birds, pet snakes, pet ants??? Completely Ludicrous! Animals are animals. Humans are humans and created in God's image. Don't get me wrong, I 'love' dogs. But I make sure, AS YOU SHOULD, that my 'love' for my cute little dog does NOT warp into something other than what God wants. QUESTION: If your doggie and a murderer were floating down a boiling river and you could save only one of them, what would you pick? If you don't pick the human, meaning your dog drowns, then I'd truly question your belief in God. Jesus had a murderer and a thief on either side when He was crucified and did it for them. I would be really careful about relegating to animals, the precious blood of Jesus.

Marius VanWoerden - posted on June 30, 2019 3:40 am

Ecclesiastes 3: 21 Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and the spirit of the animal descends into the earth? We have to listen to Scripture. There is numerous places in the Bible about the resurrection. Non of it refers to animals. If I lose all I have on earth I still have everything. If one of our children does not seek the Lord but the World and dies not being saved; on earth it may cause us a lot of pain, In heaven we will not mourn about or even remember. Jesus will be all. I long to see HIM nothing else. However I hope all my children will be there.

If pets go to heaven, then what did Solomon (the wisest man who ever had lived) mean when he wrote, "a live dog is better off than a dead lion!"?

Scien Techie - posted on September 24, 2019 5:36 pm

A Rabbi once said that Adam and Eve fell because of sin. The animals didn't sin.

PhilaRevolutionaryWarrior PA - posted on October 7, 2019 4:59 pm

I dont see why we can't walk and chew gum at the same time – meaning, We can be thrilled about being in Heaven with Christ while at the same time seeing a departed pet (which God designed and created) and experiencing joy in that also. Scripture doesn't say either way, and we realize that, but I don't see how reuniting with a pet would take glory away from God. After all, we're going to be reunited with friends and family that are Believers and that doesn't seem to be taking any glory from God according to scripture…
