Is there life after death?
There is proof of Heaven and God right here on earth. This evidence surrounds us every day.
Let's take a minute to consider the animal kingdom. There is no sin in their world. They don't need a job. They don't have to pay the rent. They don't have to buy food or gasoline. They don't need utilities. They are kept warm. They are provided with food, clothing, shelter, and water. Do they have heaven right here on earth? Paradise… There is no sin in their world.
Let's try and remember that we too are animals. Specifically, we are mammals. So what's the difference between them and us? One difference is that they have no knowledge of Evil. We do. Animals, except man do not sin. Mankind is the only Earthly being that lives in sin.
Show me an evil animal besides man. Even a mean dog has been made that way… by man. Show me a tiger that has committed pre-meditated murder with malicious intent. Tigers kill to eat or feed their young. So do we. We are not prosecuted for murder when we kill animals to eat.
Killing to eat is OK'd by God in his Word , the Bible. Also, most animals do not kill their own kind. We do, and not for food. Sharks may take a bite but they do not kill to gain a profit (like men), they are just hungry. Animals follow the law of their kingdom, survival of the fittest. Please ask yourself if a fish swimming in a lake is innocent? Has that fish ever done anything that is evil?
The animals are in another order. They are on a different level of existence. Which is where Heaven is. It's in another order or on a difference level of existence. Jesus was in another order or on a different level of existence when He arose from death and appeared. He was in a Heavenly body, one that is suitable for eternal life.
We had the same paradise the animals still have here on Earth. We lost it. We ate from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil . The serpent tempted us . Then God condemned the serpent to crawl on its belly for the rest of time . For goodness sake, it's the snake.
LUKE 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'" (NKJ)
ACTS 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. (KJV)
ECCLESIASTES 3:18 I said in my heart, "Concerning the condition of the sons of men, God tests them, that they may see that they themselves are like animals”. (NKJ)
ECCLESIASTES 3:19-20 Man's fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath, man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust and to dust all return. (NIV)
LUKE 3:6 "all flesh shall see the salvation of God." (KJV)
PSALM 36:6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O LORD. (NRS)
GENESIS 1:30 and to every animal of the earth, and to every fowl of
the heavens, and to everything that creepeth on the earth, in which
is a living soul, every green herb for food. And it was so. (DBY)
Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath (spirit) of all mankind. (Job 12:9-10 KJV)
