Let’s answer the following questions?  Why are we here?  What is the meaning of life?

Jesus answered this question when the Pharisees (religious leaders of the day) asked him, what is the greatest

Jesus summed up the entire bible (Old Testament and New Testament) with his answer.  The greatest command-
ment is “To love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul.

This is why we are here!  This is the meaning of life!  This is why we were created!  To love the Lord
our God!

When we love the Lord and pray to the Lord and he answers with his wisdom, this is the relationship that God
wants from us (his creation) and has wanted from people since the beginning of time.

I think it’s important to remember that God is a Spirit that is omnipresent and this Spirit is invisible to the
human eye.

Remember John 4:24  God is Spirit and his worshipers must worship him in the Spirit and in truth.

Next week we will start “Bible Accuracy.”

Hell 3

In Hell 2 we read that hell is referred to as a place of eternal fire.  Now, let’s examine where hell is located.

In Heaven 2 and Heaven 3 we read that heaven stretches from the clouds to the stars.  God is in heaven and out-
side/above heaven.  The only other place for hell is down.  Is hell inside the earth?  Is the eternal fire 
inside the earth?  I think it is.

The earth’s crust is 20 to 30 miles thick.  Beneath the crust is a layer called the mantle.  The mantle is a layer
where hot magna, molten rock and hot gases exist.  This mixture often seeps to the earth’s crust as volcanoes.

Beneath the mantle layer is the outer core which has a temperature of 4400 degrees Celsius.  Beneath the outer
core is the inner core or center of the earth.  The earth’s inner core temperature is equal to that of the sun’s sur-
face at 6000 degrees Celsius.  Some where inside the earth is the eternal fire of hell.

How do we know hell isn’t in another fiery place like the sun or another burning star?

Ephesians 4:9  “He ascended,” what does it mean that he also descended into the lower regions, the earth?

1 Peter 3:19  In it he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey.

After Jesus died on the cross, he descended into hell and proclaim the good news to the nonbelieving souls.

Next week, more on the Abyss.

Hell 1

Welcome.  Let’s begin our study of hell.  Is hell real and where is it?

Jeremiah 7:30  The people of Judah have done evil in my eyes, declares the Lord.  They have set up detestable
idols in the house that bears my name and have defied it.  They have built the high places of Topheth in the
Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire- something I (God) did not com-
mand, nor did it enter my mind.

What is the above scripture saying?  South of Jerusalem, in the Valley of Hinnom, the people built a fire
pit that was a garbage dump.  It was also where they sacrificed and burned their children to pagan

In Hebrew, “Valley of Hinnom” is translated as “Gehenna.”  In English, “Gehenna” is translated as “hell.”

The bible calls the eternal home of nonbelieving souls “hell.”  It is called “hell” because the place on earth that
most resembles the horror of this eternal dwelling was the “Valley of Hinnom” or “Gehenna” as described in
Jeremiah 7:30.

Next week we will read more scriptures that describes hell as a real place.

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

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.


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

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.



Welcome and thanks for reading.

Last week we read that heaven is upward in the sky.  Heaven is above the earth.  Next, where does heaven

Daniel 7:13  In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was the one like the son of man, coming with the
clouds of heaven.

Mathew 24:30  …  They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.

Mathew 26:64  “You have said it yourself,” Jesus answered, “But I say to all of you:  From now on you will see the
Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”

Mark 14:62  And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty one and coming with the
clouds of heaven.

It appears that heaven starts around the clouds.

Next week we will read how high the heavens (plural) go?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

This week we will read about the location of heaven.  Where is heaven?

Psalms 103:11  For as high as the heavens (plural) are above the earth, so great is the love of those who fear
him …

Mark 16:19  After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven …

Luke 24:51  While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.

Acts 1:11  “Men of Galilee,” they said, “Why do you stand here looking into the sky?  This same Jesus, who has
been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.

Acts 7:55  But Stephan, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God.

Isaiah 40:26  Lift your eyes and look to the heavens (plural).

Jeremiah 31:37  This is what the Lord says:  Only if the heavens (plural) above can be measured and the
foundation of the earth below be searched out …

These scriptures clearly tell us that heaven is upward in the sky.  Heaven is above the earth.

Next week, where does the heavens (plural) start.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
