Will Our Pets Live
In Heaven?

“The wolf will live with the lamb,
The leopard will lie down with the goat,
The calf and the lion and the yearling together
And a little child will lead them.”

Isaiah 11:6
A Letter Written To And Answered
by BILLY GRAHAM

wolf-and-lamb DEAR DR. GRAHAM:
You probably get asked this question a lot,
but do you think we will be reunited with our pets in Heaven?
Our dog died recently after almost 15 years, and I just can’t
imagine being happy in Heaven unless he is with us. -- Mrs. S.J.

DEAR MRS. S.J.:
God will provide us with everything we need to be happy in Heaven -- and if animals are necessary to make us completely happy there, you can be confident He will arrange for them to be with us.

Some Bible scholars have pointed out that the Bible suggests there may be animals in Heaven -- but without the aggressiveness and dangers that are part of their lives now. The prophet Isaiah saw God’s coming Kingdom as a place of absolute peace, where even animals that had once been enemies will be friends. He wrote, (Isaiah 11:6).

Over the years, my wife and I have had many pets, and I understand your grief; we are always sad when they die. I sometimes wonder, however, if God isn’t using them to remind us of a far greater reality -- and that is the reality of our own deaths. Life is brief, and it can end in an instant. The Bible says there is "a time to be born, and a time to die" (Ecclesiastes 3:2).

That is why we must never take life for granted, but see every minute as a gift from God to be used for His glory. And if we aren’t sure of our eternal destiny, now is the time to be sure by making our commitment to Christ.

God Bless Your Day
