I have actually been asked by people. Is my dog in Heaven? Or is my cat in Heaven? I’m not trying to be mean but No. Your pet is not in Heaven. Jesus said as much, and who am I to contradict Him? Not nobody, that’s who. You see Jesus said:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” – John 3:5 -6
We love animals, as we should. They love us back, sometimes. But they are flesh. They are earthly creatures. They are not humans so they were not redeemed by Jesus. They cannot be born again. Now, does that mean we will never see our beloved pets again? Maybe we will.
In Revelation there is a new Heaven and a new Earth at the end of time. It will be like the Garden of Eden all over again. So maybe God will return our pets to us then or maybe we won’t even care anymore because we have God – what more could we want?
Peace be with you.
