Heaven 9

Let’s sum up our study of heaven.

The scriptures tell us that heaven is a real place and God lives in the heavenly realm.

Further study reveals that God is a Spirit that not only lives in heaven but also outside of heaven.

We read that heaven is upward in the sky.  The heavens start around the clouds and reach to the stars.
There are at least three layers to heaven.

God is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.  All three are spiritual beings that fill the entire
universe.  They are omnipresent or present everywhere at the same time.

Not only does God fill the earth, the heavens and the universe, they created the earth, the heavens
and the universe.

Next week we will review our study on hell.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Heaven 8

Welcome, last week we read that God is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  All three are spiritual
beings that fill the entire universe.  All three are omnipresent which means they are always present everywhere at
the same time.  God cannot be contained by heaven.

In fact, let’s read that God was alive before the heavens and God actually made the heavens.

Psalms 8:3  When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you
have set in place.

Psalms 33:6  By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry hosts by the breath of his mouth.

Psalms 102:25  In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your
hands.

Jeremiah 32:17  “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you made the heavens and the earth by your great power and out-
stretched arm.

Collssians 1:16  For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;  all things have been created through him and for him.

Not only does God fill the earth, the heavens and the universe, he created the earth, the heavens and the universe.

Next week, the conclusion to heaven.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Heaven 7

Last week we read that there are at least 3 heavens or layers of heaven.  This week, which heaven does God
live?

Heaven 3 answers this question but we will read some additional scriptures.

1Kings 8:27  But will God really dwell on earth?  The heavens, even the highest heavens cannot contain
you.

2 Chronicles 2:6  But who is able to build a temple for him, since heaven, even the highest heavens cannot
contain him?

Jeremiah 23:23  “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away?”  Can anyone hide in secret
places so that I cannot see him?” declares the Lord.  “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.

Ephesians 4:10  He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to
fill the whole universe.

Hebrews 7:26  Such a high priest (Jesus) meets our need- one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners,
exalted above the heavens.

These scriptures tell us that God is present on earth, in heaven and outside of heaven.  In fact, God is spiritual
beings (God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit) that fills the entire universe.  God cannot be
contained by heaven.  God is omnipresent which means they are present everywhere at the same time.

Next week we will read how God was alive before the heavens and actually created the heavens.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Last week we read that the heavens are upward in the sky and start near the clouds, but how high do the heavens
go?

As you read the following verses, notice that heaven is plural “heavens.”

Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Jeremiah 32:17  Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and out-
stretched arm.

Hebrews 4:14  Therefore, since we have a great priest who has gone through the heavens, …

Nehemiah 9:6  You alone are the Lord.  You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry
hosts, …

Revelations 10:6  And we swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in
them, …

2 Corinthians 12:2  I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven.

Clearly, the above scriptures tell us there are several heavens or several layers to heaven.  At least three.
The highest heaven reaches to the stars.  How far into the stars we do not know.  To be sure, the heavens
are massive in size.

Next week, which layer of heaven does God live?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Heaven 3

So far we have read that heaven is a real place and that God lives in heaven or the heavenly realm.  But does God
live outside of heaven as well?  Before we go any farther, let’s make sure we have a correct perception of God.

John 4:24  God is Spirit, and his worshippers must worship him in spirit and in truth.

This scripture tells us that God is a Spirit just like the Holy Spirit is a Spirit.  Is God also omnipresent like the
Holy Spirit?

Jeremiah 23:23  “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away?  Can anyone hide in secret
places so that I cannot see him?” declares the Lord.  “Do not I fill heaven and earth?”  declares the Lord.

God, a Spirit, just like the Holy Spirit is omnipresent.  They are both everywhere at all times.  Therefore, God
is present everywhere in heaven and everywhere outside of heaven.  He is everywhere.  God does not
have a right hand or left hand or a big nose or a small nose.  He is a spiritual being and not a person defined by a
throne.  The scriptures in Heaven 2, 1 Kings 22:19 and Ephesians 1:20, that states God is on a throne or Jesus is
at the right hand of God are NOT LITERAL.

Therefore, God the Father is a Spirit that lives in heaven and outside of heaven, just like the
Holy Spirit.  They live and dwell everywhere at all times.  They are omnipresent.

Next week, we will read where heaven is located.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

This week let’s read if God lives in heaven or outside of heaven?

Deuteronomy 26:15  I have done everything you commanded me.  Look down from heaven, your Holy dwell-
ing place, and bless your people Israel and the land you have given us as you promised.

1 Kings 8:30  Hear the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place.
Hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive.

1 Kings 22:19  … I saw the Lord sitting on his thrown with all his hosts of heaven standing around on his
right and on his left.

Isaiah 66:1  This is what the Lord says:  “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.”

Ephesians 1:20  … which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right
hand in the heavenly realms.

These scriptures definitely tell us that God lives in heaven or the heavenly realm.

Next week, a correct perception of God.  Also, does he live outside of heaven as well?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Thanks for reading about heaven?  According to scripture, is heaven a real place?  Does God live in heaven?
Where is heaven?  Is there more than one heaven?

First of all, is heaven a real place?

Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 14:19  “Blessed be Abram by God most high, creator of heaven and earth.

Psalms 115:15  May you be blessed by the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.

Psalms 121:2  My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.

Isaiah 37:16  O Lord Almighty, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim (angels), you alone are God over all
the kingdoms of the earth.  You have made the heaven and earth.

These scriptures definitely tell us that heaven is a real place and that God created heaven.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
