What is Heaven? Picture 44813944 Heaven is the afterlife, the home of God and His angels, it’s also known as paradise, also the celestial sphere. Heaven is the place that some people go to, after leaving the physical body. Heaven is the eternal home, of our spirit and soul. Heavenly beings come to earth such as Jesus and some of us. Some earthly beings will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife. Some people have entered heaven alive such as Elijah and Enoch. Picture 14396420 From a Christian perspective, there are three levels of heaven. The First is the firmament, which is where the birds fly. The second heaven is the outer space; this is where the Sun, Moon and Stars are located. The third heaven (according to some, is the 7th heaven) is where God and His holy angels and saints dwell.[ To enter this celestial sphere is not based on the condition of a person’s soul but faith and believe in Jesus] This will be the home of certain people when they leave this time and space reality. The Bible also talks about a new heaven and new earth. This can be found in the book of Revelation 22.17 and it states as follows: Then 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.( it’s fair to say God knew the devil would corrupt mankind, and that’s why we need a new earth) 2 I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3
