Wasn’t it lovely seeing all these animals getting along with each other? God tells us that heaven will be like this. In Isaiah 11:6 it says:
And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them.
In heaven, there will be a change in the animal kingdom as well as in human beings. Bloodshed and cruelty will not be there. The basic instincts of the animal world will be entirely transformed. There will be no carnivorous animals in the earth made new. All creatures will live on terms of perfect friendship with one another and with man.
As the young of animals will have no fear of creatures that, in this world, are their deadly enemies, so in the new earth little children will have nothing to fear. Enmity and fear, among either animals or men, will be utterly unknown in the earth made new. The law of God’s kingdom will be the law of life, peace and love. Death, sickness and pain will not be known there in any form.
