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.
