Animal’s new creations

We have pets that have personalities and feelings, and can imagine and reason. It seems as though anything it is that makes each pet unique (a soul) is like that which makes each human unique. Therefore, we wonder if pets (or any other animals) go to paradise.

Before going on, it is most important to state that if pets do go to heaven, their owners will also have to go to paradise to see them. The Bible makes it clear that the mass of people will not go to heaven, see Matthew chapter 7, verses 13 and 14 (Mat 7:13, 14) for one example. Therefore, it is serious that we remind everyone that they need to get right with God themselves or their chances of seeing a departed pet again are zero.

There are several examples of animals associated with heaven (including 2 Kings 2:11, Revelation 5:13 and 19:11-14) or the 'new creation' (Isaiah 65:17-25). Still, the question is 'were these animals new creations or do these animals include reborn worldly creatures?' Let's look at the facts.
