Will Our Pets Be In Heaven?
Rexella: He also created, Jack, in the beginning, animals for companionship. In fact, they were created actually before Eve was created to be companion to Adam. Now we have a little kitty cat. Her name is Fenica. She is 17 years old now. Tom Parasiliti and Lorna Parasiliti our director and assistant director have a dog, a beautiful dog. Will our animals be in heaven, Jack? Will Fenica be there?
Dr. Van Impe: Very definitely. During the Millennial reign, Isaiah 11:6-8
that kingdom of God is just saturated with animal life of every type and description. But a man wrote to me about his pets and having his pets with him in heaven and what would happen to them at the rapture, and it was confidential so Iíll just say, "Dear Brother." It seemed like the Spirit of God just showed me this at the time, and here is what I said to him. "I believe that everything on earth is a picture or pattern of things in heaven. Thus, during the Millennial reign of Christ, the earth is filled with tame and beautiful animals of all descriptions, Isaiah 11:6. Furthermore, since earth is a pattern of heaven, then the third heaven of II Corinthians 12: 2-3
must also be filled with these bundles of love. I donít believe that the return of Christ on the white horse in Revelation 19:11
is merely rhetoric. He comes on this animal because there are beasts in heaven. The Bible does not specifically state anything concerning animals being taken at the rapture, however, since God promises that he will not withhold any good thing from those who love him, I believe that a simple request to the Saviour will make our desire for our pets occur instantaneously. He is God. He can do anything. For instance, there are those whose beloved pets went the way of all flesh and died. However, God is able to bring them back from dust and ashes as simply as he does the humans, when the dead in Christ rise. To sum up everything Iíve said, I believe that we will have the animals we loved with us in heaven, not because of the rapture, but because our requests produce Godís recreation, reassembling of these little furry bundles of love."
