Scripture: “In the beginning God created heavens and earth. The earth was formless and empty; and darkness was over the surface of the waters… God said, “Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good and separated light from darkness. He called the light day and called darkness night. There was morning and evening and the first day. Then God said,” Let there be a vault between the waters to separate them. And God called vault above the waters sky and that beneath vault seas.” Genesis 1: 1-5
We are told that there are three heavens: first heaven is the sky that covers the earth and is the realm of birds and clouds. The Second heaven is where sun, moon, and stars are stationed. Third heaven is unseen and dwelling place of God and Jesus; also where deceased saints and Christian martyrs are, and the place of God’s throne and His holy angels.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, before Jesus left earth and returned to heaven He said in His Father’s house are many rooms, if not, He would have told us, and promised one day He would return that where He is we may be. Perhaps soon God will call me to my eternal home, or return for me. Until that time my plan is to continue serving Him: for my motto is wear out. not rust out. Precious Savior, in Your name grant me that privilege. Amen.
