Where is heaven according to God?
When God made the heaven and the earth, He told us where heaven is. Do You know where it is?
Luke 17:21 KJV
"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is (within you)."
Indeed; I get it. Our wrinkled walnut is so significantly based on our past exposures and our "occupations of our mind" that our path may perhaps be easy or impossible...
Yes but where is the place called heaven, they are not the same thing.
MT 6:10, COL 1:5, REV 21:1 JESUS said thy kingdom com in earth as it is in "heaven".
I don't believe everything that is written in the bible is literal. The MT 6:10 is just the lord's prayer and Rev 21 talks about seeing a "new" earth & heaven which implies the old earth and heaven will be destroyed. I'll stick with Luke 17:21
I haven't responded to this yet because I'm trying to get my thoughts together on the 3 layers of heaven which includes the area above the earth.
I will never forget, when I was comatose my life flashed back before me and it did not stop at my birth it kept going back what seemed to be B.C. It really seemed like back in time and space; not just time. Yet I can only speculate...
Interesting -- but you did not address the question.
If I must connect the dots; then I shall. it is indeed within us. My life flashing back before me is the path within. It does seem sensible and quite simple. Look to discover what is within one's mind and one may discover the way...
the bible clearly tells us the physical location of heaven, where is it? it is not the Kingdom of God which is within us.
Heaven and hell are both states of consciousness as well as locations within the cosmos. True the kingdom of God is within the heart, but there also is a physical location that we get to go to once we have moved from this plane of existence.
According to me heaven is where there I only bliss for all. I hope we all make it there one day.
the bible clearly tells us the l\physical location.. where is it?
Could you find me the exact verses, I could not find anything with specifics in terms of hysical location.
The word "firmament" AKA sky is used in that verse. However like many things believed in the Old Testament Jesus came to replace the old covenant with the new. Israel rejected Jesus and his teachings. Jews are still waiting for the messiah! hmm
dscorpio - sky is not the correct translation of the word. read what the scripture actually says instead of what some folks teach. it actually says it reaches from water to water, therefore the entire surface of the earth is acually in heaven
celafoe - if water is what you are after then i suggest you read /youtube the "kuiper belt"... if i remember correctly its a band of thousands of water blocks the size of earth about 15 million light years away...
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” ... Revelation 21:1-27
you did not answer the question. this scripture is what happens after the judgement. where did God say heaven is ?
He will make the earth new. Heaven is in the new Jerusalem.
Just like the thief on the cross...... Jesus told him because of his faith he would meet him in paradise. Other than this, I do not know what you are looking for?
pretty simple the question is what is the physical location of heaven right now. God clearly spoke where it is but most people wrongly say no one knows.
acdc - that is the correct scripture but it does not say what you said above. the above is AFTER the judgement. heaven currently is from the surface of the earth to the waters above and below, wherever they are
Had to do a little research to give you what you were looking for. Thank you for the enlightenment.
happy to see you stuck in there instead of being offended. So many have such thin skin my ways offend them and they just go away and pout. My intent is always to point people to the Word and a relationship to HIM, not man .
No it is not. That is according to religion. According to God and Jesus it is WITHIN you.
sorry you are both wrong, that is not what scripture says. The kingdom of God is within us but that is not the physical location of heaven.
After typing out my answer i realized it was meant for Christians... so forgive me but i'm answering anyways.
there are 7 skies (levels in heaven)... the gates of paradise start at the lowest sky which is just beyond the stars we see... the gates are guarded by angels. when a subordinate of satan tries to hear the commands of God near the gates of heaven the angels throw something like a fireball at them which we know as a shooting star.
the position of God is on this throne.... our stretched shadows point towards God ...
" the Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between" is a common term you will find in the Quran... it's not on earth and there is a gap between the heavens and earth.
If you want actual quotes then i can get them for you.
ARKSYS - that is not the answer to the question. that is what the churches of men teach but it is incorrect and is Not the answer to the question. where did GOD say heaven is located.
celafoe , I hope you do know that (man) wrote the bible! Man also created religion! Religion was the original government people had for rule and order. The reasons why there are many denominations is because various sects disagreed on who is right
If you are looking for heaven it is where I have said it to be. If you are looking for the light of God then you can find him Within you. Just need to polish that mirror. That's what I've come to know so far. If you think I'm wrong then plz explain.
did you read genesis 1:5-9 According to God heaven is from the surface of the earth to the waters above and below, whereever they are. The KINGDOM of God is within His people.
sorry don't have a copy of the bible... i think you missed my comment above somewhere ... look up "kuiper belt" and you may find out where the waters above and below are... its a little different in our religion a little though... all good.

Why do people think that heaven or the kingdom of God is in the sky?What did Jesus say? see below20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo...

I brought up the verse that God's Kingdom was WITHIN you. Some person whom thinks they are a Bible Schalor told me that I didn't know what I was talking about and I didn't think I knew who Jesus was talking to. Yes I know who Jesus was talking to. He was telling the disciples...

For the very many years I was in Church attendance, the Kingdom of God was always equated with Heaven. It was a future event that only those who believed in Jesus would see either when they died or were raptured, whilst the remainder of humanity would go to hell. A Christian could be disqualified...

What does Jesus/bible say about how to enter heavenI come from a long lineage of Catholic belief. I believe in 1 God and have accepted Jesus as my personal savior. I speak to Jesus/God almost on a daily basis though I rarely ever pray. I am not a church going or...
