Where Is Heaven

Where Is Heaven?

Where is Heaven? The Bible doesn't say exactly where Heaven is so where is Heaven? Let us look to the Bible. The Bible says there are 3 heavens: 1st is Earth's atmosphere, 2nd seems to indicate outer space, and 3rd is the abode of God's throne. The 3rd Heaven is often referred to as "up" but the direction of "up" is relative to where you are on the planet if you mean by "up", straight up. 

In 3 passages it is referred to as toward the "North". 

Isaiah 14:13 "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the NORTH"

Leviticus 1:11 "And he shall kill it on the side of the altar NORTHWARD before the Lord"

Psalm 75:6-7 "For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another." 

There is a direction of North no matter where you are on the globe. Is it out in space straight up from our magnetic North? Is it closer than we think? Is it a realm that exists at the speed of light and therefore we can't see it? We don't know for sure but it is a real place.

When Jesus returns there will be a new Heaven and Earth.... Will you be there?
