Btw. What I mean when I say "give your testimony" is tell about when you were saved!
I was saved January 1st, 2017! Daddy had just preached the day before, about how that we don't know how long will be here, and we need to make sure that we are ready for when our time comes to die. I went home terrified that night! I was afraid you're gonna die in a car at, or that I was going to die in my sleep, for something else tragic was going to happen and I would end up going to hell because I was not yet saved! My sister that time, really really really had a strong desire to be saved but was way too young as she was only 6And obviously at that age, And obviously at that age, you can't really understand enough to be able to know when Jesus is calling you. Anyway, it had began to happen every single night, Kayleigh will call mom and daddy and there and tell her that she needed to be saved. Obviously, as usual... It was a false alarm. But that was going to be different, nobody knew it yet though. Once they were down explaining to Kayleigh, that she was just too young and she was going to have to wait a little bit longer, I told them that I needed to talk. I was 9, so it was a little bit more realistic for me to have Jesus calling me then my 6 year-old sister. That 9 as she's just come live in my heart and that was the best day of my life! I obviously have never regretted it and never will!
I believe that heaven is, in fact, a physical place, but will not always be somewhere else! I believe that once any unbelievers and demon angels, and Lucifer/Satan go to the lake of fire, God will bring heaven down to earth! And he'll live with us here forever! The reason I think that, is because before the fall of man, everything on earth was perfect! Just how God had originally created it! But when Adam and Eve sinned, God had no choice but to punish them. He made it harder for them to live on earth, and put a curse on the ground that would be there until God lifted it! Also, when God sent the flood, He promised that he would never flood the earth again! But he never said that he wouldn't destroy this earth another way. I believe it he somehow will! My dad personally believes that animals won't go to heaven. I like to think they do though, I'm not completely sure. I believe that there will be many animals in heaven! Most likely they will be about like ours! Only God knows! The thing is, you can only get to heaven if you have a soul. Because when you die it's your soul that goes to heaven. But my dad doesnt believe, that animals have a soul And even if they did, a chinchilla, though I have heard they are very smart, would not be smart enough to be able to make a decision to go to heaven which I believe is it decision you personally have to make for yourself. I know that part IS true. I don't know for sure about animals going to heaven. I hope they do!
