"Turn around go right get on Narrow street and at the end of the road there it is."
---Elder on 7/15/12

Lets see! You're saying make a U-turn (repent), on Broadway Street, away from Sinful Destruction City (aka Hell). Then go straight until I come to & turn right onto Righteousness Pathway. Stay to the right & it will eventually merge onto Narrow Gate Road. At the end of Narrow Gate is Heaven?

Gee, I like your plain & simple directions Elder! Everyone should have them so they won't get lost. Thx! :)

"I had taken Heaven to be a place to replace earth at the end of time."
---Marc on 7/15/12

Heaven is God's eternal abode Marc. That means it always was, is & will be regardless of the cosmic status of earth.
---Leon on 7/15/12

We "see" the present one.

John saw the second heaven.

Paul was taken to the third and final one, at the end of the ages, when death is abolished and all are made alive in Christ, and God is All in all.

2C 12:4 he (Paul) was snatched away into paradise and hears ineffable declarations, which it is not allowed a human man to speak.

1C 15:24 Then [cometh] the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

"Heaven is a real, physical place located in this, the ONLY universe that exists. [?] Any other universe would require another God [?] - & there is no other God."
---jerry6593 on 7/14/12

Jerry, "Uni" is Latin for "One". How do you know the universe, we live in, is the only version? How do you know there aren't any others (multiple verses) made by the One & only God?

Another good word for it may be "out", for Heaven is outside the physical realm.
One might even say it is "out of this world"

"All I can tell you is that it is up!..."
---trey on 5/28/12

I agree with you Trey & foremost with the Scripture references you gave. Since we're all inhabitants on this global sphere called Earth, living in different locales around the world, which way is up is relative to where one is. Up for you may not be up for me. Nonetheless, "up" is definitely ABOVE (way over all of our heads), in extended space ~ at a much higher level, position or layer ~ certainly beyond Earth's realm.
---Leon on 7/12/12

All I can tell you is that it is up!
Ac7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
Ac1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,
Mr6:41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them, and the two fishes divided he among them all.

Blogger89, there is a difference between us and Jesus Christ. We are not the same. We are given many gifts by the Holy Spirit. But again, we are not Jesus Christ. Here is what you said and the reason I answered,
"Why is that? Because as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world."

There is no way you or anyone else now can ever be, as Jesus was during His ministry. Not one ioda. Don't you realize what you are saying? Jesus is God, He is Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Holy, and pure. You are nothing but dirt. Clay molded together either for honor or dishonor. When you make such claims be careful. I know when a limb is restored, it is because of God.

If I gave you a saw and tell you to go cut down a tree and you do, how was the tree actually cut down? Was it you....or the saw? Could one do it without the other? As we have freely received, we freely give. Eternal life is defined as knowing the Father. We can give our personal knowledge of the Father away. Healing was placed in the hands of the church also. It is an instrument to be used in the hands of a skilled bearer of the instrument. Like I said, no.matter what Scripture is posted, you can't hear Him because of your unbelief and lack of understanding as to how the Kingdom of God flows from the heavens where we are seated in Christ to the earth in the body we inhabit.
---blogger8980 on 5/27/12

Blogger89, the simplicity of the Gospel in clear, only to those who have ears to hear. Jesus said, My sheep hear my voice and they follow Me. Those get eternal life.
"For if one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him, but if a man sin against the Lord, who shall intreat for him? Therefore when He (the Mediator) cometh into the world, He saith, A body hast Thou prepared Me" (Heb. 10:5)
Are you another mediator? Did you come from heaven and received another body? or were you conceived in sin? If you came from heaven, then you are just like Jesus Christ and you too can give eternal life. So please, do not compare yourself to Him who is eternal.
---Mark_V. on 5/27/12

I maintain what I said. Too many other Scriptures to verify it. Don't bother to ask me to post them. You are so deceived by your doctrine you would manage to twist any plain Scripture posted. You claim to have "revelation" that none of us can see and at the same time say there is no further revelation. Your doctrine requires way too much explanation and twisting of simple words to make it true. I am always wary when the simplicity of Christ becomes complicated. At that point it is not only complicated but has too much room for the wisdom of man. You have already well proven by your words that you don't know Him as He is.
---blogger8980 on 5/26/12

Blogger, with a kindly heart I tell you this, as He is so are we, that is speaking of Jesus humanity. He does look like us in that He is a human being. But He is also God and we are not gods, and don't have two natures as He does.
In Spirit He is also inside of every believer, and you are not. He is the Atonement and you are not. He is able to stand before the Father and you cannot without Him. Now that is the Truth. If you knowingly reject the Truth you blaspheme the Holy Spirit, for the Spirit testifies of Christ. And is the only basis for our salvation.

As He is, so are we in this world. You lie against the truth.
---blogger8980 on 5/24/12

Blogger, what happen in Scripture is the Word of God. That's why it's Truth. What happens today is the work of man. You are also not like Jesus. "He is God Almighty,"you and I are but vessels of clay. You lie and He doesn't. He is our Atonement, you are the sinner. You cannot even heal yourself. You cannot go through walls, can you? Don't try to compare yourself with God. You are clay, formed the way God wanted to form you,
"But indeed O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to Him who formed it, "why have you made me like this?" Does not the Potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?" (Rom. 9:20,21)
---Mark_V. on 5/24/12

And God flows in the earth out of His temple, the church. Also, the Word says that Jesus told His disciples to heal the sick, not pray for Him to do it. Acts says that Paul healed and that mighty signs and wonders were wrought by the hand of Paul (not the hand of God). Why is that? Because as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world. When He appears, we appear with Him. When we see Him with the eyes of our understanding, we are like Him. In fact, we are so joined to the Lord we are one Spirit with Him. Walking in the Spirit makes that oneness manifested. What is manifested? His name. His name is healer, deliverer, righteousness, peace, etc.
---blogger8980 on 5/24/12

Blogger89, you and others got me all wrong, I am a believer in the Sovereignty of God. The devil does not restore limbs, people do not restore limbs, God can restore a limb if He so chooses to do so. There is no limbs been restored by anyone. Sorry, I do not believe satan or man, I believe in God. I believe if a person comes back to life it is because God's time to take that person has not come yet. When that time comes, he will go. No one can change that time, if they could they would be God and God would stop being God. God controls life and death. No one else does. He is the Most High, Lord of heaven and earth. Subject to none, influenced by none, absolutely independent:

Rev 13:2b-4 ...and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
2Co 11:14 And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me, [but] God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save much people alive.

---micha9344 on 5/23/12

MarkV, do you really believe the devil would restore a limb given the fact that he comes to steal, kill, and destroy? I would consider the restoration of a limb an addition, not a subtraction. It is the nature and name of God to heal, not the devil's. The devil has no such ability. Your comments greatly convince me you wouldn't know a healing Jesus if He healed right in front of you using one of His earthen vessels.
---blogger8980 on 5/22/12

Chria, thank you for you impute. I appricate your answers. I believe that many times people do speculate and have a reason because many things are not explained in Scripture. God did not feel it was important for us to know or else we would have known. Even when it concerns those writers who translate the Bible from the originals. Even then God makes sure the Truth goes out. And the reason we have it today. Many stories did not give details and man through history have put their own spin on those things. We have enough for us to follow, we don't need to add anything not there. Heaven could be a dimension of some sort, but that is really putting our own spin on the Word.
---Mark_V. on 5/23/12

Peter, brother, I did not mean what this people claimed was true, in fact I thought he was a nut. Too many nuts out there. And some Christians I answer here, want me to trust them just because some story in the Bible mentioned where someone did a miracle. I kept saying, those miracles are Truth because they are authenticated by the Word of God, the Bible. What people say today that they can do, can never be authenticated it comes from God. Because it is coming from them, sinful people at that. We hear limbs were restored yet not one has been authenticated it happen or that it came from God. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

MarkV, I understand your problem with the word dimension, and would like to clarify concerning my post on 5/13. One dictionary definition is another level of existence or another level of consciousness. As for consciousness, one may be spiritually minded or carnally minded. As for existence, God is omnipresent, present everywhere. That simply is my understanding. These may be developed upon either biblically or speculatively so one needs to be careful that all things are lined up with the Word.

Mark V: 'but was in a hurry to leave'

It is an interesting statement, but I cannot see God Himself saying that to someone.

God has all the time do things, as time is in God's control.

So I cannot see a real reason why God should be 'in a hurry'
---Peter on 5/21/12

Chris, I'm so sure it will be a wonderful place in heaven. What happens to us while in the flesh, is that most of us don't want to die, even though we know it will be great in heaven. I suppose it is because the flesh still wants to live a physical life.
Concerning the tree of life, I also believe that spiritually. My grandson who just finished his ministry drew a picture for me beginning with the tree of life, and all the in-between and ending with the tree of life.
Right now, as believers, while in the flesh, we are already spiritually seated with Christ, have the Holy Spirit, and are in an eternal Sabbath rest in Christ. Almost there but not there yet.
---Mark_V. on 5/22/12

I think for those chosen it will be a wonderful experience, more than you can ever imagine.
You see I believe the tree of Life is about spiritual growth.
Its not about physical food but spiritual.
Luke20 34/36 tells us 'we will be like the angels.'
Spiritual is not just about prayer and praising verbally.
Praising is about harmony as well, being in tune with everything God gave us.
The tree of knowledge is dis- harmony. Look at the world around you. That cannot go to the next world.
That is just what I believe.
God sends the Holy Spirit to light our tree of life if we only listen. Then we have to nurture it.

Elena blessings, I hope you are well.

Brother Chris, I will meet you there in heaven one day, where ever the place is located at. I'm sure we will love it. Someone told me it would be boring. That all we will be doing is worshipping God. No more sin. I suppose he will miss sinning.

Leon, you asked me,
" Surely you've read of people in the Bible who had audible visitations from God or else God spoke to them in their dreams or thru visions? :)"

Of course I have. It comes from the word of God. I have yet to read about dimensions. I have heard of one guy here who said, that God visited him at his house in California but was in a hurry to leave because He had to prepare a place for him in heaven so He left in a hurry to finish his mansion in heaven for him. I also heard here, that someone was asleep and floated above the bed. So yes, I have heard of such mericulous things from many.

Well those horrible scientists are at it again. Physicists are now working on the theory of 11 dimensions and alternate worlds.
This week they took a small step forward, with subatomics using two atoms.
No this is not your U tube quaks but some of the top scientists across the world.
There is also the question of black holes like the one on the centre of the Milky way.
I have no idea where heaven might be, I just hope I am allowed in.

Mark: You really don't understand, do you? Our physical three dimensional aspects have to do with height, width & depth in our world, & cosmos. Our conscience level (fourth dimension mind/spirit/soul) transcends our known 3D reality. That's where God chooses to speak to believers, audibly or in our dreams or by awake visions. Surely you've read of people in the Bible who had audible visitations from God or else God spoke to them in their dreams or thru visions? :)

Let me speculate, since there are three heavens, we have three dimensions, but the level which God by the Holy Spirit speaks to us is our conscience level, one dimension, then goes to the second dimension, to talk to other believers level of conscience "dimension". So all dimensions of heaven are in ourselves. Hey, that is awesome. Just a lot of speculating, no biblical references.

"Dimension could be a level of consci[ous]ness, what? Lets use that for heaven now. Heaven is in our own minds. Not a p[a]rticular location. And the Lord Jesus Christ came down from our consci[ous]ness. It's spiritual alright. But not biblical..."
---Mark_V. on 5/17/12

Mark: Some people are so heavenly minded they're no earthly good. That's where they're at mentally & their stand (position) in the spirit definitely affects their physical state of being (three dimensions). The same applies to the very real place (fourth dimension mental state) you currently occupy.
---Leon on 5/17/12

Dimension could be a level of conscienceness, what? Lets use that for heaven now. Heaven is in our own minds. Not a perticular location. And the Lord Jesus Christ came down from our conscienceness. It's spiritual alright. But not biblical.
I used to like the word, "dimension," I used to believe in a dimension before God saved me. I use to think with my mind, there was a dimension where all the aliens spaceships use to go. They could go in and out and not be seen.

speculate - reflect deeply on a subject, "philosophers have speculated on the question of God for thousands of years", And still don't know the Truth.
It is, To engage in a course of reasoning often based on inconclusive evidence. To assume something that is not fact.
Scripture is fact, and Truth. Anything outside the Truth is not fact. I'm sure I'm not the only one who believes that when a person speculates he is adding something not there to begin with, and since every person has an opinion, you would have a lot of different views that are not facts. Now we could speculate that the writers of Scripture did not know what dimension meant, and the reason they did not put it down in Scripture, but that too would be speculating.

Mark: When you say "'We' cannot safely speculate that Jesus went into another dimension", I take that to mean "YOU" since you can only speak for yourself, not the rest of us bloggers. Yes, the Bible says Jesus went somewhere & it was, without speculation, heaven.

Is the fact that we're three dimensional beings living in a three dimensional world science fiction? Does not the Bible speak of heavenly aspects (dimensions) that do not exist on earth, e.g., crystal sea, streets paved with gold, the tree of life, etc.?

By the way, I'm convinced SPECULATE (not mama) was the first word you ever spoke. Predictably, it may be your last. No offense intended. God bless! :)
---Leon on 5/13/12

Realm, is a kingdom, sphere, region, or domain where anything occurs. Dimension is a Science fiction word used in books and movies. Not in Scripture. It is use in physics and mathematics. We cannot safely speculate that Jesus went into another dimension. No where are we told that. We know He went somewhere, but where He went we are not told the location, only to what place and it was heaven. The realm of heaven. The kingdom of heaven.

Scripture certainly says Heaven (God's abode) is a "place" as well as being a "realm" (a kingdom). A dimension is an aspect, a particular part of a place or realm.

Matthew 6:9-13 speaks of God's kingdom coming on earth as it is also in heaven. A heavenly dimension exists, on earth, in the Church (believers in the Lord Jesus Christ).

Jesus ascended up into a cloud & vanished from the sight of his disciples (Acts 1:9-12). Can we safely "speculate" Jesus likely went into a cloud-veiled passageway (conduit) & was instantly transported to Heaven, and as the angels said, He will return to earth in like manner (way)?
---Leon on 5/12/12

Without adding to the Word of God, we can understand that heaven is not anywhere that humans can see now. Cluny gave a great answer. To say it is another dimension is to add to Scripture something we speculate. It is a spiritual realm we cannot see. It could be located in outer space or here in the space of earth. Most of the time Scripture says, comes down" as if its higher then we are. We know it is a perfect place, and we will not be bored when we get there, as some I have heard conclude, not here but elsewhere.
---Mark_V. on 5/12/12

I believe Heaven is UP HIGH ABOVE THE CLOUDS....somewhere where we can't even imagine.

However, the bible gives us enough scripture to "picture" what Heaven is like.

You may also want to get a copy of Jesse Duplantis DVD called "Close Encounters of the God Kind."

God took him to heaven for a visit. He describes in detail what Heaven is like. It's definitely UP because he said he went UP in something.

Someday hopefully we will all make it there and get to see it and spend eternity there...just make sure you're going....then live with a Joyful heart of knowing your Heavenly Father is there waiting for you!
---anon on 5/9/12

The heavens are above the earth. The seed starts in your heart, and this is how we can communicate with God through praying. Recall how Elijah, in body, was carried UP into heaven: and Jesus, in body, was carried UP into heaven (Acts 1:11). The New Jerusalem is UP in heaven. When the rapture happens scripture says in Luke 21:27,28 to Look UP for your redemption draws nigh.

---Catholicus on 5/8/12

I don't believe that Heaven whither Christ ascended (or hell, for that matter), is in this created physical three-dimensional universe of space and time.

However, I don't like using the word "another dimension," either, because this is an attempt to limit such mysteries to the categories of modern physics.

This is opinion only, and has no bearing on one's spiritual condition.

We'll all find out in due time.
