John 14:2, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Take moment and think of the
various places you have heard of and eventually were able to travel to see!
What kind of proof do you have that the city exists besides a map? Usually it
is just a testimony of its reality. My testimony concerning Heaven is found in
the Scriptures.
Jesus said He was going to
prepare a “place.” This is not a figment of someone’s imagination. This is a
real place with real streets, real mansions, real wall, and real gates.
Psalm 121:2, “My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”
Acts 4:24, “And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one
accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and
the sea, and all that in them is:”
Isaiah 40:12-14, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow
of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of
the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a
balance? Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counseller hath
taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him
in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of
Heaven has three divisions of the
first heaven, the second heaven, and third Heaven where is the dwelling place
of God.
The first heaven is the space
between the waters above and the waters beneath. This space is called the
“firmament” heaven. It is the atmosphere, which surrounds the earth and
contains clouds and water. It is where the birds fly and is the part we call
the “sky.”
Genesis 1:20, “And God said, Let the waters bring forth
abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the
earth in the open firmament of heaven.”
Genesis 7:11, “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life,
in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all
the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were
Genesis 8:2, “The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped,
and the rain from heaven was restrained;”
These verses explain to us about
the windows of heaven being opened and then stopped at the beginning and the
end of the flood.
I Kings 8:35, “When heaven is shut up, and there is no
No rain because the heavens are shut up! According to Daniel 11:4
the winds originate in heaven. Job 38:21-26 explains to us that no one can
understand the activities of heaven. (That explains your weatherman’s
Beyond the earth’s atmosphere you
have the sun, moon, and stars.
Genesis 15:5, “And he brought him forth abroad, and said,
Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and
he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.”
Deuteronomy 1:10, “The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and
behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.”
Deuteronomy 4:19, “And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto
heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the
host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the
LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.”
The third Heaven in the
Scriptures is the very dwelling place of God. It is far above the other
Ephesians 4:10, “He that descended is the same also that
ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.”
II Corinthians 12:1-4 tells us
that Heaven is above the earth. Psalm 103:11 explains that Heaven is “high
above the earth.” Acts 1:10, “And while
they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up…”
Jesus went “up” into
Heaven. Genesis 14:19, “And he blessed
him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and
God owns Heaven just as He does earth.
 Heaven’s contents and activities are real. Every thing in
Heaven was created by God according to Revelation 10:6 and Colossians 1:16. “And sware by him that liveth for ever and
ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are…” “For by him were
all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him, and for him.”
 Our Heavenly Father is
there in Heaven at this very moment. Matthew 6:9, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven…”
According to I Kings 8:27 Heaven and the heavens cannot contain God and Solomon
recognized that! So, He is omnipresent with Heaven being His dwelling place.
 God hears our prayers from Heaven according to II Chronicles
7:14. God sees from Heaven according to Psalm 33:18-22 and Psalm 11:7.
 God has spoken aloud from Heaven Exodus 19:9-10 explains. God
spoke to Moses and the people could hear it. He spoke to His Son Jesus when He
was baptized according to Matthew 3:17. 
God spoke to Saul of Tarsus in Acts 9:3.
In Acts 1:10 we find Jesus being
received back into Heaven. Mark 16:19 and Luke 24:51 also speak of Jesus being
received up into Heaven.
Jesus stands to greet those who
trust Him for salvation when they die and enter Heaven according to Acts
7:55-56 and Hebrews 9:24 along with I Timothy 2:5.
Satan does not live there but he
visits Heaven. He is called the “accuser of the brethren.” One day, after the
rapture of the saints, in the middle of the seven-year tribulation period he
will be kicked out of Heaven and not allowed access any more. Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power
of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them
before our God day and night.”

 Angels are assigned from Heaven to protect children according
to Matthew 18:10. Angels are ready to go to war according to Matthew 26:53,
Daniel 4:35, and II Kings 6:17. Angels came to roll the stone away in Matthew
28:2. The angels strengthened Jesus according to Luke 22:43 and actually came
to proclaim the birth of Jesus according to Luke 2:15.
 An angel will shout when the Lord comes back for His own
according to I Thessalonians 4:16. Jesus has all power over angels,
authorities, and powers according to I Peter 3:22.
 Rewards will be there according to Matthew 5:12; 6:20; 19:21;
25:23; Romans 2:10; and James 2:5. Our new bodies are there in Heaven according
to II Corinthians 5:1. Citizenship for the saved is there according to
Philippians 3:20. Hope is found there according to Colossians 1:5. Records are
there in Heaven according to Luke 10:20; Malachi 3:16; Ephesians 3:15;
Deuteronomy 30:19: and Job 16:19.
Psalm 119:89, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in
God has promised to every generation and every nation that He
would miraculously give preserved inspiration of His Words to each generation
and each nation. There is a Heavenly language that is not Hebrew, Aramaic,
Greek, or English. God has given translations through men not too men for every
generation and every nation. It is all under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.
The truth is when we arrive in Heaven we will not speak Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek,
or English but God’s language.
Zephaniah 3:9, “For then will I turn to the people a pure
language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with
one consent.”
So, if you learn Greek it will not help you to understand the
Scriptures but rightly dividing the WORDS of God (II Timothy 2:15) is the
answer for all of God’s people. By faith we trust that God will keep preserved
inspiration for all generation and nations. That is His job and I trust Him to
do so. It is not rightly dividing the Strong’s Concordance or the Young’s
Concordance but the Words of God.
