    1st HEAVEN WITHIN

    1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
    10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.


    Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
    21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
    33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

    Matthew 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

    Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
    21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

    Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

    2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.

    Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

    Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

    Blessings

    A nice read.
    I like where it says in Mt 6:10.
    IN earth and not ON earth being we are earthen vessels...

    The first heaven is the heaven wherein this current war is waged.

    The new heaven is made new again, having no more sorrow and pain and sin or death or evil. It is heaven after the judgement.

    The new heaven and earth will replace the old heaven and earth that will be destroyed on the day of the Lord. Never again will Satan and the beast be used for the visible images and invisible thoughts that have deceived man since the beginning.

    Revelation 19
    17: Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly in midheaven, "Come, gather for the great supper of God,
    18: to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great."
    19: And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army.
    20: And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur.
    21: And the rest were slain by the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that issues from his mouth; and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.

    More than just this heaven we see above where the birds fly, ...and then the new heaven and new earth.... There are obviously many heavens. Paul was 'caught up into the third heaven'.
    Yet I don't believe any of them are where God's Throne is.
    There were seven skins over the Holy of Holies, in Moses Tabernacle covering the Golden Mercy Seat. Everything God spoke for Moses to do , make , or build for the Tabernacle had a spiritual meaning to them. Therefore I believe there are seven heavens...not counting the New Heaven and The New Earth.
    But ......that's just me. ;)

    What it means is that there are various sets of information such as Lucifer, the beast and Christ. Lucifer is the information where all the visible images we observe are processed from during this temporary generation. The beast is the information that teaches human beings how to build things ( false gods ) with their human hands and this is where all the various human languages came from. Christ is the eternal information that created men were born in and who will get to observe images and thoughts in their individual minds in the next generation. Only God's chosen servants and a few believers get to share in the knowledge called Christ during this temporary millennium reign of Christ which is the time used by our Creator to reveal all the hidden things that no man can see such as the beast, how we're created, what happens on the day of the Lord and afterwards. We also get taught some historical events from the past that helps us understand how God used His prophets to set up a story line and from that story line He used words, phrases and names in the prophecies that were written and spoken by the other prophets starting with King David, Job, Daniel, Isaiah, etc.
