Swords to Plowshares

Promoting a faith-based love for all creation.

When we’re in heaven, will we be able to communicate with animals?

We can communicate with animals on earth, so why not also in heaven? I’m not even talking about Balaam’s donkey (Numbers 22:28) or the serpent in Eden (Genesis 3:1), nor am I talking about gorillas and chimpanzees being taught sign language, or dogs learning commands, or the many other instances of animals learning human languages. Animals also have their own languages of varying complexities, and if you listen closely enough, any animal will teach you their language. “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you” (Job 12:7). You may be disappointed if you expect the animals in heaven to all be speaking Hebrew or English or whatever other language you prefer, but as long as you are willing to listen, any animal in heaven or on earth will teach you their language.
