To Christians, where in the Bible does "God Himself" state that creatures other than humans will not have an afterlife?

Update:

By "creatures" I mean Earthly creatures like fish, whales, dogs, cats, birds, insects, elephants etc.

    It doesn't say that. In the Levitical Law, clean and unclean animals are described. Carnivores and bottom feeders, and those with a split hoof, are ceremonially unclean, so it would make sense that we will not see them in the afterlife. But in Revelation 19, we learn that Christ's return will be with Him riding on a horse, with an army of the angels and saved saints following after Him on horses. Horses (and animals without a split hoof) are among the clean animals.

    WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT STATE THEY DO

    Well it does tell us in Ecclesiastes 3:21 that the spirit of the sons of men goes upward, and the spirit of the beast goes DOWN to the earth.

    So I presume that means animals etc. They won't have an afterlife buried down under the earth

    I'm not going to get into actual verses, but the Bible says that Jesus died on the cross for all of humanity. It doesn't say anywhere that he was crucified to save all creatures. And through the Bible we see that only humans have divinely created souls. And it is the soul that goes to heaven.

    Hey look, I love my pets. I hope I'm wrong. But this is what Christianity teaches.

    The bible clearly states Eternal life, Salvation is based on belief

    animals don't have ability to believe

    . For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

    Well in the Book of Revelations we find visions of heaven that include various animals, horses, a lamb, frogs, eagles, etc.. So it seems to support the idea of an afterlife for animals.
