There's something I'd like to tell you about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). It's concerning a friend of mine.
My friend has been really upset, lately.
She has several animals. Mainly dogs.
But, last week... one (1) of her dogs died... when she was not at home.
Being human, it's truly upsetting when a pet of ours dies. After all, our relationship with them, is usually like them being family.
I can understand her being broken-hearted.
In the past, I had a couple of pets that died of old age about six (6) months apart.
When this happens to us human beings, I believe we wonder if we will ever see the pets we lost, when we go to Heaven.
To be honest, none of us truly know.
God's Word, the Bible doesn't promise us that we will spend time in Heaven with our lost pets.
However, His Word, the Bible... does tell us that beasts honour our Lord, along with elders and angels.
Just as we read, in Revelation 5:11-14, "And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever."
Beasts... are animals.
Does this mean that every animal will be in Heaven some day?
Only God knows.
So, in the meantime, we must look to Him to provide a good life here on earth, for our pets... and us.
Until next time...
