Meaning of the 3rd heaven.

Many Bible scholars point to a gap between the first and second verses of Genesis.

Verse one reads, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The Hebrew

word for “God” here is Elohim (plural),meaning God the Father, God the Son, and God the

Holy Spirit.” And “beginning” in Hebrew is barasheet, which means “in the dateless past.”

In addition, the King James Version uses the translation “heaven” as singular, but the

Hebrew word is shamayim which is plural. The Bible refers to three heavens:

1. The first heaven is our atmosphere, what we can see:

“God called the firmament Heaven” (Genesis 1:8).

This is also described by the psalmist: “When I

consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the

moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained”

(Psalm 8:3).

2. The second heaven is where spiritual forces of

wickedness reside: “We wrestle not against flesh and

blood, but against principalities, against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places”

(Ephesians 6:12). This is where Satan is now ruling.

3. The third heaven is where God abides. It was

described by the apostle Paul, who was “caught up to

the third heaven”

(2 Corinthians 12:2).
