Is Heaven my Home?

Thanks be to God who causes us to triumph in his name. In Him we live and move and have our being. Today I want us to talk about HEAVEN!  All believers have lived their lives of faith overcoming and enduring so much without despair because of the hope in heaven, God’s kingdom.   We all eargerly wait for that day when God can say, “welcome faithful and wise servant. Take your place here in eternal paradise.” Such a beckoning is so euphoric though sometimes we are gripped by fear lest we run short.  Today we want to look at heaven. How many types of heaven exist?  Looking at Gen 1, we can see that there are many heavens  Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  What are these heavens then? We know that God dwells in heaven. Does he dwell in these numerous heavens?  Let us see the heavens that there are;  ① 2Cor 12:2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.  In this verse, we see there is a third heaven.   What other heavens exist?  Rev 21:1Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.  In this verse we have the first heaven and the new heaven, call it the second heaven.  So we see three kinds of heaven here. Not only this but also in Matt 6:10, there is the kingdom we need to see the will done there done on earth. Which heaven do believers yearn and long for? Where shall you and me go? How can we get there? What are the qualifications? What happens in each heaven?  We discuss all this and much more. Join us at Bible study to sharpen each other.
