Are there animals in heaven?

About the future or heaven, Scripture says:

Isaiah 11:6-9

6 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.

7 The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together,

and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

8 The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper’s nest.

9 They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,  NIV

The bible describes various animals living in harmony with each other and with people.

Revelation also mentions riders on horses coming from heaven. There are horses in heaven and animals in the new world.

To me, all this confirms that there are animals in heaven and they are at peace in heaven.

To me personally, I think, earth which was created in six days and has millions of amazing animals! Why would heaven, the home of God and eternal dwelling place for all believers not have even more amazing animal life?  Is earth better? No way!  “Eye has not seen or hear has heard and mind has not conceived what God has prepared for those that love him”  1 Corinthians 2:9

    Thank you for the pingback to LookListenAndThink.com for the article DO DOGS GO TO HEAVEN? As the author of that site, I would like to pass on to you a recent update in that article. I have just reviewed a book by Gary Kurz titled: COLD NOSES AT THE PEARLY GATES. His second book is WAGGING TAILS IN HEAVEN. The author, Mr.Kurz is a man of letters, a preacher and I believe former Pastor. I am happy to say that I can highly recommend this well researched book COLD NOSES… I have not yet reviewed WAGGING TAILS… My site has a direct link to Amazon and these two books in the end P.P.P.S. Happy reading, happy research, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. / M.LaClair
