It's seems that it might be. As I've been reading through Isaiah I keep finding these strange little doors that lead me into whole other worlds I never knew existed. Recently I stumbled upon Isaiah 11:7 "The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox." Interesting. During the future reign of Christ even the most vicious carnivores will eat the grass of the fields. In many ways the Millennial Reign of Christ directly parallels the time in the garden of Eden where God's rule and reign is perfectly obeyed, so I wondered if maybe this was how God had originally created the system: a no death, non-meat-eating order. I was a little skeptical, honestly. I don't know about you, but I've always found it weird to think of animals in the garden of Eden not eating each other...I mean, come on...look at the crocodile! Do you really think God gave him those teeth for chewing the cud? Or the black widow? Why would God give her a venomous bite if she was supposed to suck on pollin all day? Well, despite my preconceived notions, I flipped over to Genesis, and you know what I found? Eden was a vegetarian's paradise! Check out Genesis 1:29-30 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. In Eden, according to God's design, everyone ate only plants.
We know that Eden was life as God intended it to be, and that one day God will restore that perfect state at the end of the age and we will be with him forever in heaven. Does that mean that there will be no meat eating in heaven as well? Revelation says that there will be no death. You certainly can't have hamburgers without dead cows. (bummer). We also see in heaven that there is the tree of life that bears twelve kinds of fruit and that those who are in heaven have the right to it. So, as far as my study led me, there will be only fruit and plant eating in heaven...but I could be wrong and there might be an In-and-Out there!
What do you think? Will we only eat fruit in heaven? Will we even eat at all in heaven? Here's one more...if we do eat, and we have our glorified bodies, will we produce waste in heaven? Sound off with your comments below!
