Can You Think Of One Good Reason Your Pet Won’t Be In Heaven?

By Tana

Can you give me one good reason your pet won’t be in heaven? It is clear from scripture that there will be animals on the New Earth. So, why not those pets that brought you so much joy? Our Father in heaven is the giver of gifts. God delights in lavishing joy upon us. Granted, it may not seem like that sometimes, but sometimes it is because we don’t recognize the gift and at other times, I believe this current sinful world limits the full measure of the gift. It won’t always be that way.

When you understand the love God has for us, there isn’t one good reason your pet won’t be in heaven. God knew giving us the gift of free will would require a greater gift to allow us to be with Him despite our fallen state. And get this, He wants us to be with Him forever, so His plan provided a Savior for us to reconcile us to Him for all eternity. Why He would love us sometimes is a mystery, but it is clear that He does.

Though His love is unconditional, He doesn’t force it upon anyone. You have been given the free will to choose. Why anyone would choose not to want to be with the One who loves them to this degree and plans to provide a paradise to which to live in peace is a baffling thought. A place is being prepared for each of those wanting to live in this paradise with our Savior Jesus. A place that fits who we are and even our interests we’ve had on this current earth. I believe that includes our dogs and other pets who have truly been part of our family.

John Wesley says: Something better remains after death for these poor creatures…that these, likewise, shall one day be delivered from this bondage of corruption, and shall then receive an ample amends for all their present sufferings.

God tells us in His word in the Book of Romans that even the creature waits to be delivered from the bondage of this corrupted world that the animals are subjected to because of us. “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” Romans 8:19-21 (KJV)

There is not one good reason your pet won’t be in heaven, in my opinion, and God’s word gives us much reassurance. I went through the Bible cover to cover in my search for this reassurance when my wonderful little friend died suddenly at the age of 3. I researched theologian’s and people’s testimonies who had near death experiences. I wrote this all down in Until Heaven Then My Friend, which is available on Amazon or by PDF.  And in all that, I did not find one good reason your pet won’t be in heaven, not even a reason obscure.
