This is why I am convinced that dogs are now nothing less than little children.  The only thing that hinders them from becoming human is that they can't talk and don't have hands.  Otherwise, this should make you shed some tears, because they are so perceptive and thoughtful.

Quote:Dog Spotted Burying His Best Friend After He’d Been Hit By A Car, And It’ll Break Your Heart

[Image: dog-buries-friend-hit-car-thailand-58b3f...0__605.jpg]

Last Wednesday, a dog died after being hit by a car in Buriram, north-east Thailand, leaving his heartbroken canine brother behind. The pooch decided to bury his best friend himself, and it was all captured on camera. Throughout the procedure, we see the doggie using his nose rather than paws to pour dirt onto his brother’s body, stopping only to sniff him for the last time before he proceeds… Get your tissues ready.

More evidence that some animals are aware of death, and the loss it brings. Some even show a sense of sad, respectful reverence. A friend told me about two horses he once owned, an old horse and a young horse, who became close friends. One day the old horse began staggering off in the direction of a hill. The young horse started to follow. Then the old horse turned back, and said something to the young horse, nickering something into its ear. The young horse then hung his head, and remained where he was. The old horse then made his way up and over the hill, sank down to the ground, and died.

I believe that in the New Earth God will remake after the Second Coming, having already resurrected humans, God will resurrect many of the animals who have had a part in our lives--after all, He originally intended for them to live forever too, and it was not their fault that nature was corrupted after the fall of humans. God clearly intends that the New Earth will contain animals, so why not resurrect those who have lived before, and suffered on our account, and have even had a part to play in our education--they demonstrate to us emotions often purer than our own, and they demonstrate to us how undesirable it is to live a life of selfish striving for the supremacy: it leads to "nature red in tooth and claw." Jesus said in Luke 12:6: "Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God." Why would God remember even the sparrows that are sacrificed, unless He intends to restore them to life someday?

There should be a lot of room in the New Earth. Revelation 21:1 says that in the New Earth there will be "no more sea." The surface of the earth is currently 4/5 covered by water, and much of the land that now exists is sparsely inhabited, such as deserts, glacier-covered mountains, etc. Jesus also promised that God will give us whatever we ask (John 16:23). So if we ask to have our beloved pets restored to us, why wouldn't God do so? I don't know if God will resurrect every animal that has ever lived, but He may resurrect all the animals that have interacted with humans. Maybe some day some of us will find ourselves having to apologize to the cows and pigs and chickens and turkeys and deer that we have eaten, when there was plenty of non-animal food available.

Ron, you can have all the mosquitoes.

As you know, only the female mosquitoes bite us. The males have more rounded probosci that are more suitable for sucking juice from fruit. Genetic defects such as these will be remedied in the New Earth. Those of us who were short will be tall, those who have scoliosis will stand straight. The fangs of carnivores will be restored to the flat teeth of herbivores. ("The lion will eat straw like the ox."--Isaiah 11:7) Roses will lose their thorns. Mayflies will not die after a few days. Downs Syndrome children will have normal I.Q.s. No one will be ugly. We will all be clothed with opaque light like the angels, and as Adam and Eve were before they fell--and then discovered they needed to make clothes to wear. If you were a fashion designer on this earth, you will probably have to find a new occupation. Perhaps designing and decorating the new, open-to-nature houses we will inhabit as our "country homes," in addition to the mansions we will have in the New Jerusalem (where the Central Park is the Garden of Eden).

Ron,

Why would you assume God would only restore "some animals" in the eschaton? Paul said "all things/everything" in the heavens, the earth and under the earth would be restored/reconciled.

I think you're right, just expand your vision.

This is mainly speculation, of course. I say many animals will be resurrected to stock the New Earth, because I do not want to be presumptuous--God will do things the way He chooses. Will God resurrect every animal that has ever lived in six thousand years to populate the New Earth? Even with the fourfold increase in land with all the major seas gone, and the temperate climate virtually from pole to pole, that would be an awful lot of animals.

Do you think God would resurrect Lions or Tigers that have attacked and killed humans? I have read of some such animals who seem to develop a taste for hunting and eating humans, almost as if they had become evil.

I think that God will first resurrect the animals that the Redeemed specifically request--such as their former beloved pets, or the horseman his faithful mount. Then perhaps He will resurrect all the animals that have interacted directly with humans in a positive way. Such as dolphins that have saved human swimmers, or guided lost, fogbound ships to safety through dangerous shoals. Then perhaps animals that have interacted with humans indirectly or incidentally--such as the songbirds that have gladdened many hearts. And victims of human hunters. And of slaughterhouses. (There comes to mind the picture of cattle being marched despondently toward their slaughter, with tears streaming from their eyes. They are deserving of the compensation of eternal life in Paradise, too.) And maybe roadkill. But there also may be some animals that will simply be as if they had never been.

And while Revelation tells us there will be no more seas, there will still probably be some large lakes. There will have to be places for the dolphins to play. And maybe some whales, too. But obviously there will not be enough room for all the fish and aquatic mammals that have ever lived. Unless some of them live in vast underground water reservoirs, such as the Bible implies existed before the Genesis Flood broke up "the fountains of the deep." Since God seems to abhor darkness, He would likely give the denizens of the deep bioluminesence to light their way--since He does that even today.

We can be sure that in any animals that God chooses to use to stock the New Earth, the fangs and claws will be gone. The Bible explicitly says in Isaiah 11:7: "the lion shall eat straw like the ox." That can only mean that the fangs and sharp incisors will be replaced by the dentition of an herbivore. Imagine the toothy, horse-like grin of the lion, restored to its Edenic form!

Ron,

Of course God will do as He pleases and He made all things for Himself( that's an important point, He didn't just make stuff, He made it for Himself) and Paul says all things will be restored in the heavens, on earth and under the earth. That doesn't leave out anything.

Peter in Acts said this was what the OT prophets were talking about, the restoration of all things. It's an idea our church has not taught well enough, IMO.

See, now that's the kind of humor I meant when I was answering Patrick. One has to be able to inject this sort of lightheartedness if he/she wants others to realize he/she isn't walking around with an eternal chip on one's shoulder. S22

Who says people can't be the only happy and proud parents out there?  He's happy, because he's a daddy.  And she's happy because she only has to feed a basketball team, instead of a baseball team.  S13
