Why is Heaven Called the “3rd Heaven”?
This description is from 2 Cor. 12:2 “an one caught up to the third
The three levels of heaven are--
(A) 1st Heaven = The atmosphere, the miles of air above us,
where airplanes and balloons find their limits.
(B) 2nd Heaven = Space, where exists the sun, moon, and
stars. It is so vast that no
actual scale model of the universe is possible.
No one knows where the last star is.
(C) 3rd Heaven = God's throne, before which are the Triune
God, angels, the saints of all ages.
It is a limitless place.
