Q. I have a question. Do animals go to heaven and will the go to heaven after the rapture? I have 7 bunnies and 6 dogs and I’m terribly afraid of what will happen to them if the rapture comes soon. Will they go to heaven when they die? Will i be with them? I’m so scared of the rapture happening because I’m worried about them. Can you please tell me your best answer?
Also, when is the rapture supposed to happen? I’m confused by your site. My father told me that the rapture can happen this year, at the 70th anniversary of Israel’s becoming a state, 80th and another year but I’ve forgotten. This being the 40th year preoccupies my thoughts a lot because it scares me.
A. Do you think that a God who loved you enough to die for you so that you could live with Him now wants you to be afraid of going where He is? Do you think that He would do anything that would turn your joy to sadness? This is your enemy causing you to have a spirit of fear. Take this thought captive in Jesus’ name and make it obedient to what you know about Him! (2 Cor. 10:3-5)
The Bible tells us that once we’re with Him there’ll be no more death or mourning or crying or pain (Rev. 21:4) Have faith in His ability to provide everything necessary for your happiness. The world that’s coming will be so different from ours that there’s no way to imagine what it’ll be like except to know that our joy will be complete. (1 Cor. 2:9) If pets are required to make it so, then there’ll be pets.
As for the timing, the Rapture could literally come at any moment. There’s no connection between the Rapture and the rebirth of Israel. I’ve said that the 2nd Coming could happen within 70 years of Israel’s rebirth, not the Rapture. I apologize for confusing you.
