    Where is heaven where Jesus is ?

    1. Is it above the earth ?
    which side of the earth is it above ? North or South
    Does it orbit with the earth ?

    2. Another dimension right beside us.

    3. One of those planets out there among the heavenly stars ?

    Hebrews 11:16 Abraham desire a better country, an heavenly country
    v.10 looked for a city which hath foundation, whose builder and maker is God.


    Any other places ?

    In us and around us...but only perceived by spiritual faculties. There is much more to this reality than what meets the human senses.

    2 Corinthians 12:2 (KJV)
    2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell;
    or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth)
    such an one caught up to the third heaven.

    Seem to be an upper level somewhere

    It's in another dimension. That's why our Lord Jesus' resurrection body was able to suddenly appear and disappear among His disciples, entering a room with closed doors (John 20:26). Although His resurrected body looked like flesh and bones and felt like it, it was of another dimension.

    Study about Satan's original rebellion and you should eventually understand that there was a world before when the angelic lived upon an ancient earth.

    Yes, Heaven is far, far, above the earth. Heaven -- God's Heaven -- is called "the third heaven", which means that there are three heavens (not seven as some have alleged).

    THE FIRST HEAVEN -- the earth's atmosphere and stratosphere, called "the air" in Scripture.

    THE SECOND HEAVEN -- outer space (including all heavenly bodies and galaxies). The astronauts looked vainly for God in this space.

    THE THIRD HEAVEN -- God's dwelling place, the place of His throne.

    At present the New Jerusalem -- the city which was shown to Abraham in a vision, and to which He looked forward -- is in Heaven (and is equivalent to Heaven).

    The occupants of the New Jerusalem AT PRESENT are (1) God the Father, (2) the Lord Jesus Christ, (3) all the holy angels, (4) all the Old Testament saints who have passed on, (5) all the New Testament saints who have passed on, and (6) the blood of Christ sprinkled on the heavenly Mercy Seat. There is a heavenly Temple or Sanctuary within, and Christ is the great High Priest in Heaven (after the order of Melchizedek).

    At the time that the New Heavens and the New Earth are established, the New Jerusalem (a cubic city with the dimensions of several continents) will descend from Heaven and remain above the earth as the only source of light for the earth. The sun, moon, and stars will have all vanished at that time. God and Christ will be the Light within the New Jerusalem. And there will be no temple there.

    Which remark shows that you really don't believe the Bible.

    REVELATION 4

    1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

    2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

    3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

    4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

    5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

    6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

    7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

    8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they werefull of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

    9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

    10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

    11Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

    Heaven?

    A planet? No

    Above the Earth? Yes

    Separated from Earth by a firmament? Yes

    The way you asked the question you have already provided the answer. Let me rephrase it:

    There is heaven where Jesus is.

    I only had to crucify (replace) the letter W (as in the World), with the cross like letter T to experience it/Him.

    Actual LDS Christian, explaining actually LDS Christian beliefs--

    We don't know the physical address of Christ right now, nor anyone else's eternal resting place. Frankly, such questions are... kind of silly and a distraction from the importance of the Gospel. The frequently mocked "Kolab" references are metaphors, not a physical address as a mocker will make it out to be.
    And yes, LDS Christians of course readily acknowledge that other Christians are Christians (that seems like such a no-duh statement) and will have a very nice after-life.

    Oh whoops, I forgot about you! :)
    Sorry for any offence ... I just found it funny that anyone should think that 'heaven' is some kind of physical planet.

    I see it totally in a spiritual realm...nothing physical.

    Hope we are still friends ;)
