ATP: How High Is Heaven?

The Holy Scriptures indicated that there are three heavens.

1. The space above the earth

  Genesis 1:6-8 

And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." [7] So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. [8] God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day. 

2.  Outer Space

Job 9:9 

    He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,

        the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. 

3.  Heaven, the space where God dwells

2 Corinthians 12:2 

    I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know--God knows.

Matthew 6:9 

    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
