Skip to comments.Our Pets / Animals Will Be In Heaven
Posted on 03/28/2010 2:33:34 PM PDT by Freedom'sWorthIt
Well - I thought we could all use some good news.
Was up in the wee hours of the morning watching TCT.TV and this Sid Roth Program comes on (It's Supernatural).
The host interviewed a man named John Fenn.
John has done some unusual things.
You will need to watch the video at the link to learn more.
But the one thing that really made me smile was that John Fenn who was "caught up into heaven" like the Apostle Paul was:
2 Corinthians 12:2: 2I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago--whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, (B)God knows--such a man was caught up to the (D)third heaven.
Heaven will not
If my cats are not there
to welcome me.
Epitaph on an old tombstone
Sorry, I’m not about to limit God.
I haven’t made a trip to Heaven yet.
A number of folks who have come back with insights I haven’t had but yet which resonate with Holy Spirit within me.
I do not toss them out, out of hand.
Won’t mangle my theology either way.
It certainly sounds like something God’s love and kindness would engineer.
Part of me thinks that we’ll be more interested in fellowship with one another and the rest of the saints from the ages . . . however, I do believe that animals are in Heaven. It’s not a great leap to believe that some of those animals could be favorite pets.
God Blesses Manics too.
Your post your opinion.
I will not heed to any anti Catholic posts.
I'll keep him in the loop for you. And others that are concerned about the viciousness of Roman adherents.
And if "heeding" is responding, then you responded to this post and it is as rabidly anti-RCC as anything he has written. I will continue to point out that their man-centered theology is destructive to the soul and I will continue to call upon Rome to repent...if it can.
Ya know one of the times KV was on life support/ICU (told it was the end, been told that three times, he still here/back) and he finally came around and got well he said he talked to the Lord and thought he was going home fer sure.
The Lord told him No the Pinapple Pizza and Red Wine wasnt ready for him yet. : )
We are not commanded to proselytize or baptize our pets so it would seem that their eternal paths are different from ours.
Far be it for me to tell the Almighty what He can or cannot do but I believe expecting our pets to see us in Heaven is just human emotionalism and not support by His Word.
I can remember seeing kids over the years from 4-H cry there eyes out when there animal went up for auction and on to someones dinner table.
There maybe allot of Moos waiting for their human care providers. : )
Points taken, but I respectfully disagree.
It appears that few are able to make the distinction between fierce disagreement about heresy etc.
hatred of persons or even of the whole organization.
One ends up concluding that some simply do NOT WANT to deal in the truth nor in fair-mindedness.
God is bigger than all of us put together.
Thanks for your love of HIM.
Not to mention the lowest life form of all -- democrats.
I didn’t realize my favorite (passed via emails)story about the man and his dog was from the Twilight Zone. Always brings a tear to my eye.
That implies that God has
LESS selectivity about animals in Heaven than He does humans.
Sounds like silliness to the max, to me.
He strikes me that way, still.
He has a TV personna that’s . . . geared to the medium, a bit. However, that’s kind of the way to do it, I’d think.
God has to be THE SUPREME priority or humans evidently won’t make it.
It would be super tragic for one’s pet to be there and one not to be.
One may be better served by observing what scripture has to say about consulting mediums. We are prohibited from doing so. Such things are better left to fanciful Twilite Zone episodes than considered for addition to one’s faith.
Ditto, my FRiend.
Actually you are correct. The Biblical answer is that animals do not go to jail.
I’m sure Heaven has awesome beer making equipment already!
Not at all - including the idea that one cannot be "happy" in heaven unless supplied what one preferred on earth. Neither would I limit God by presuming heaven is even for the purpose of our happiness as we understand it here. Seems to me that the passage stating no one has heard, seen or even imagined what awaits has the distinct possibility of exclusivity.
For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
“And dogs. “
At no time is salvation mentioned as being offered to anyone but people.
Not even angels get an offer of salvation.
I tend to agree with that.
That’s so funny! My pastor is going to likely not be very happy to discover cats are in heaven....
The only Created beings in rebellion are human. Being the pinnacle of His Creation, we were and are offered salvation. The rest of His good Creation doesn't need it, never having rebelled. They suffer disease, aging, decay and death, right along with us, because of us, due to The Fall. All the world does.
A good resource regarding this matter comes from the 18th century. It's John Wesley's legendary sermon, The General Deliverance. It's very powerful, and runs the gamut of Biblical thought pertaining to the lesser Creatures. Give it a look, it's widely available on the internet.
Okay. God bless you!
LOL! OH my! Yes I imagine there were a lot of tears over those moo’s.
God bless you.
Would you call Paul a medium?
Hello - Glad you found this thread!! God bless!
I agree with both of you. I’m not “anti” anybody, just anti false teachings.
I tend to keep it to myself and then have guilt feelings for not trying to show the error of their ways.
I pray, my brother and sister.
I pray for the atheists too, many of them who are just too smart for the simple message of the gospel.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Thank you, as always, for your thoughtful words. I am an animal lover & that would be my fondest wish— to see my dear departed babies once again.
I wish the people who are not being kind in their posts could just not comment on such a lovely post. Thanks for making my night!
You are classy & take the high road. Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!
God bless you too.
I would call him rare.
Well know what dog spelled backwards is!
Yes I do!
Then count me out.
All 3 canines here have been lulled to sleep as the Singing of the Lords Passion is sung from the Solemn Mass of Palm Sunday with Pope Benedict XVI
So peace filled.
Hope that feeling in my heart is not a muscle spasm.
My immediate thought was that there will be no animals in heaven because my wife has extreme allergic reactions to animal dander.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that she won’t be taking her allergies to Heaven with her!
As for the debate whether animals will be in Heaven, I’m not afraid to say, I don’t know.
Wasn’t the twist to that TZ episode that hell turned out to be beyond those gates where dogs were not allowed, and the man and the dog went on to the real heaven together?
Remembering that Twilight Zone where the old codger dies while coon hunting with his dog. Almost falls for Old Nick talking him into supposed “heaven” which doesn’t allow dogs. The old codger takes a pass, and moves on up the road to the real Heaven, where dogs are welcome.
Sure didn't work out well for Saul did it?
Ha! Yes there will be no sickness in heaven - none at all! So that allergies thing won’t matter - Praise the Lord!
Well, no, we don’t KNOW know. Because Scripture does not really comment on this specific issue of “pets in heaven”.
With the description of horses being ridden upon by the Lord Jesus when He returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and also by all His Saints who will be returning with him FROM HEAVEN at that great and glorious time - I believe that is a big “clue” that animals will indeed be in heaven.
But we don’t know specifically about pets.
the person mentioned in this article heading John Fenn - well he had an experience like Paul did in the scripture passage I mentioned....Paul said he saw things that he could not discuss....but do we think Paul is a liar? deluded? mentally ill? on drugs? crazy?
I don’t think so.
Yet Paul tells us he went up to heaven on a “temporary visit” from which he returned and mentioned IN GOD’s WORD which is totally true!
I really have no doubt that John Fenn had a similar experience. Everything he reported about his trip to heaven matches up with an experience that Dr. Eberle had years ago which he wrote about - I think it was called Caught up to Heaven - but not sure.
He fell off a balcony and hit his head on concrete which split open his skull. He was clinically dead. And he described similar scenes as John Fenn describes, the grass and flowers and trees just perfect, and gloriously beautiful, and all exuding this beautiful melody! Yes - singing!!!
Dr. Eberle (he was a physician) reported the same things.
(He also had an experience where he went down into hell - and saw the reality of hell as well - but that was another book).
I just do not recall reading about beloved pets in heaven before.
I think it is a message of loving kindness from our Gracious Lord to all His Beloveds who have such animals——and I have no doubt these loved animals will be in heaven with all who belong to Jesus!
Thx for your kind replies.
Thanks for your kind reply.
Thx for your kind reply.
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God .21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God
Creature - the word "creature" is translated from the original Greek word KTISIS, meaning all creation, the complete product of Gods creative acts everything that God has made.
“Not even angels get an offer of salvation.”
And I see no one arguing that angels will not be in heaven.
I believe there will be many aspects of God’s creation that do not require salvation but will be in heaven...
If your focus regarding eternity is on the loved ones and pets you want to see again you are looking entirely in the wrong direction.
My gratitude - and that seems SO trite a word given what He did - to Jesus Christ regarding my daughter is for His death on the cross that enabled her to be with Him in unimaginable paradise. Her body is perfect now - the pain and disabilities are all gone. He loves her perfectly and she is basking in that and worshiping and loving Him. One day I will experience the same. Even if I never spend another moment with her I am OK with that because WHATEVER eternity holds, as long as the Lord our God has built it for us it is simply not possible that it could disappoint in any way what so ever.
Yeah This was on the magical mystery christian tour of sid roth - this guy has weird shows.
What about passing GO or collecting $200? I'm starting to think I'll go with the shoe or the battleship instead of the Scottie dog next time.
