Just recently a young lady shared something that was very shocking. Someone had made a statement that their cat died. The lady grieved over a year about her cat dying. Well, the story goes on and on, but the sadest thing was when the lady said, Jesus told her that her cat was in heaven. After hearing this she got over being grieved.
Well, this is no joke. A lady actually made this statement. But, the Word of God says,"That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart, and shall believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved"(Romans 10:9 KJV). How can a cat be saved?
Let's look at another Scripture"who knows the spirit of the son of men, which goes upward, and the spirit of the animal, which goes down to the earth?"(Eccl 3:21NKJV). People and animals differ; their bodies go back to the dust from which they came, but the human spirit is immortal.
I'm not being funny, but I can't find no Holy Scripture to support this claim. Many of you have heard the same thing, so just pray for this lady. She's a Christian, but what she said doesn't line up with the Word of God. In cases like these we need to pray for her understanding of the Word of God. Millions listen to her probably daily. This is why we need to be rooted and grounded in the Word of God, then have a church home. Monitor what you watch and hear, if it doesn't line up with sound teaching, then turn it off. It only makes you confused.
