This we finish up our discussion on the levels of heven. So lets get started. We talk last week about the third and second levels. Lets talk now about the first level. " God created the HEAVENS and the earth." (Genesis 1:1) The Bible does teach the existence of a single heaven that has levels. Or did God actually create multiple heavens? We begin to find our answer by going a bit further down Genesis 1 to the very first place where a specific heaven is referred to: "Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. God called the firmament HEAVEN " (Genesis 1:7-8) This first heavenly location is the earth's atmosphere, which is the place that has air and clouds. A confirmation of where this is located is found in the book of Jeremiah: "I beheld, and indeed there was no man, and all the birds of the HEAVENS had fled." (Jeremiah 4:25) Birds fly within the earth's atmosphere which we call SKY. Revelation 19 further substantiates this definition: "Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of HEAVEN "(Revelation 19:17) In closing we see there are scriptural references to levels of heaven. 1. The first heaven is Our Immediate Atmosphere 2. The second heaven is the stellar heaven, the sun, moon, and stars. 3. The third heaven is where God resides, above the other two regions. God, however, is certainly not limited to one geographical place.
