๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‘ How Many Heavens?

โ€œExactly how many heavens are there and what is the purpose of each realm?โ€

We believe the Scriptures teach there are three heavens.

The first heaven is our atmosphere where we live and serveย the Lord. It is where the Psalmist says, โ€œthe fowls of the heavenย have their habitation, which sing among the branchesโ€ (Psa.ย 104:12).

The second heaven is the solar system that consists ofย the sun, moon, stars, and planets (Gen. 1:14-18). Prior toย the written revelation of God, the Lord used this realm as aย teaching tool. Once again, in the words of the Psalmist, โ€œTheย heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament [expanse]ย sheweth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, andย night unto night sheweth knowledgeโ€ (Psa. 19:1,2). Whileย Satan currently dwells in the second heaven, he will be castย out of heaven to the earth in the middle of the Tribulationย period (Rev. 12:7-12). Throughout eternity, the members ofย the Body of Christ will occupy this realm and its various seatsย of authority (Eph. 2:6).

The third heaven is the abode of God often referred to inย the Scriptures as the heaven of heavens. It is also where anย innumerable host of angels worship and serve the Lord. Thisย is confirmed by Nehemiah, โ€œThou, even thou, art Lord alone;ย thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all theirย host, the earth, and all things that are thereinโ€ (Neh. 9:6).

Paul reveals that he was caught up to the โ€œthird heavenโ€ย where he received a further revelation from the Lord regardingย the Mystery (II Cor. 12:1-4; Eph. 3:2,3). The apostle alsoย calls this realm Paradise. Today, we have a heavenly hopeย according to Colossians 1:5; therefore, when we come face toย face with death, we look forward with great expectation to beย absent from the body โ€œand to be present with the Lordโ€ (II Cor.ย 5:6-9), Who dwells in the heaven of heavens. source

Verse for 1/21/2018

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. — Galatians 6:7-8
