HEAVENS...WHERE ARE THEY?

All scriptures of the book of Revelation quoted in this compilation are from the Book of Revelation in its proper chronological order, not the old incorrect order, both references will be given however). All passages used here are as per the NAS (New American Standard), or the CJB (Complete Jewish Bible), with proper name changes.

Although most people believe that there is a Heaven, few people understand what Heaven entails. Most Christians have been seriously misled in regards to what the place called Heaven is all about. In the following article I will try to describe what Heaven is all about as per our Bible and what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me.

I must explain that in the universe, there are three distinct separate places described as heavens according to our Bible. These three will exist until Yeshua returns in the clouds 3 1/2 years into the tribulation. Once the saints are removed from earth, these three will still exist till the end of the Book. After the saints are removed (raptured) from planet earth the two final Heavens will be revealed. They are described as the "New Heaven on the New Earth", and the "New Jerusalem Heaven" which is separate from the newly formed earth. Those who have been "born again" but have not matured or progressed will find themselves present on the heaven on the new earth. Those ELECT who "DID AS YESHUA DID" will take up residence in the New Jerusalem. Though heaven on earth will be a beautiful place, it will not in any way compare to the New Jerusalem.

There are three heavens talked about in our Holy Scriptures.

1) The first heaven is what is commonly called Hades, which is divided in two. The souls and spirits of the saved are on the one side, and the souls and spirits of the unsaved are on the other. You might call it a staging point until Yeshua returns in the clouds. It is discribed in detail further in this article.

2) The second heaven is the New Heaven that is discribed in the first part of Rev. 21:1-2 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the heavenly expances (first heaven) and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer [any] sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Yahveh, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband." (correction made). When the earth turns into the "lake of fire", there comes a new Heaven and a New Jerusalem. Two separate places. It is discribed in detail further in this article.

3) The third heaven is beyond what we can see. This is where the New Jerusalem is, where Yahveh and Yeshua exist. 2Cor. 12:2 "I know a man in Messiah who fourteen years ago andemdash; whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, Yahveh knows andemdash; such a man was caught up to the third heaven". Paul was actually talking about himself in this verse, his own experience. Paul was taken up in the spirit (similar to John when he wrote the book of Revelation) to the New Jerusalem. John 14:2-3 "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you". Wishful thinkers often use this verse to establish that all saints will have a special place in Heaven. This verse is discribing the New Jerusalem. Only the elect Believers will enter here. Rev. 19:11 "And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it [is] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war." It is discribed in detail further in this article.

Please note: The word "heaven", "heavens", and "heavenly", when used in our Bible, can also be discribing the "skies above us", "the heavenly expance" we see when we look up. The context must be kept intact when coming aross these scriptures.

Heaven is definitely "up," the bible says Yeshua came down from heaven, it also says He ascended into heaven. John 6:38 "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. " John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh." Acts 1:9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

In Eph. 4:10 "He who descended is the very one ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe". The words, "all the heavens," here, means more than one.

In the parable of the "talents" left with three slaves in Matt. 25:14-30 Yeshua made it clear that all Believers are given some talents, what we do with these talents will determine were and what we receive in which Heaven.

Astronomers agree that there is a great empty space in the north, in the nebula of the great constellation of Orion. Many believe that there is a heavenly cavern there so gigantic that the mind cannot comprehend it. Astronomers agree that this big hole, approx. 16 trillion 740 billion miles across, (compared to the diameter around the earth's orbit being 186 million miles), is where heaven is. This huge opening is 90,000 times the size of the earth's orbital diameter. In other words there could be 30 solar systems like ours (including the sun) in the opening of this great hole in space. When astronomers view this area some say there seems to be something spectacular there, a great awe and supernatural presence. Job 26:7 "He stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing.

ABRAHAM'S BOSOM (SHEOL)

Abraham's Bosom was the name of the place where the souls and spirits of the dead went at the time of the old Testament. It was the place (staging area) where all souls and spirits went after death, prior to Yeshua's resurrection. The Believers souls and spirits couldn't go to Hades because their sins were only "covered", not taken away, until Yeshua died on the stake. After Yeshua died he descended into Abraham's bosom where He picked up all those departed and then ascended into Hades with them. (Luke 16:22-23, 2Cor. 12, and Eph. 5:8). When Yeshua ascended into Heaven, he went into Abraham's Bosom and removed all the souls and spirits of those who were resting there, and took them to the new place called Hades.

When Yeshua was talking to Nicodemus He explained that no man (other then Yeshua), had yet ascended to heaven. They were all in Abraham's bosom.

Job presents us with some unusual thoughts about Sheol (Abraham's Bosom), in Job 14:10-14 "But man dies and lies prostrate. Man expires, and where is he? {As} water evaporates from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dried up, So man lies down and does not rise. Until the heavens be no more, He will not awake nor be aroused out of his sleep. "Oh that Thou wouldst hide me in Sheol, That Thou wouldst conceal me until Thy wrath returns {to Thee,} That Thou wouldst set a limit for me and remember me! "If a man dies, will he live {again?} All the days of my struggle I will wait, Until my change comes."

HADES

Hades is the place where, (since Calvary) all dead peoples souls and spirits go immediately after death. It is also referred to as the first Heaven. Hades is divided into various sections. You might say it is a staging area, until Yeshua comes back in the clouds. The main separation here is between the souls and spirits of saved people, as compared to the unsaved. The angel of Hades manages the place Hades.

ON THE SAVED SIDE OF HADES

• One section of the saved side of Hades contains all those who have been born again.
• A second area is where the souls and spirits of unborn children are. This includes all fetuses that were created (killed) by the use of birth control, stillborn babies and all aborted babies. (Remember, the moment of conception, when fertilization takes place in the womb, a spirit and soul are formed, a person). (Zech. 8:5)
• There is another section for the souls and spirits of alters (insidors) that accepted Yeshua as their Messiah.
• There is no communication between the saved side of Hades and earth, other than through Yahveh, there is a great gulf in between. (Luke 16:19-26)
• When in heaven, we will not be bothered by the thoughts of lost loved ones, family and friends. Adonai will not allow us to feel that type of discomfort. When the great prophet Isaiah spoke of the last days and the new earth the Holy Spirit had revealed to Him things that would occur in the new kingdom of Hashem. Isa. 65:17 "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind." Isa. 65:19 "I will also rejoice in Jerusalem, and be glad in My people; And there will no longer be heard in her The voice of weeping and the sound of crying." Then John is told what it will be like in the new world. Rev. 21:4 "and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be {any} death; there shall no longer be {any} mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."

ON THE UNSAVED SIDE OF HADES

• On the unsaved side of Hades all the souls and spirits of the secular people are in a state of torment. A stagnant state where time stands still. Here, the souls and spirits wait for judgment day, so they can formally be cast into the lake of fire with Satan and his fallen angels.

THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT (Rev. 20:11-15)

On judgment day we will be judged according to our level of moral knowledge and according to the morals of that time period in which we died. Yeshua will be the judge on judgment day, not Yahveh. (John 5:22-23, 26-27)

Each person will be judged according to the measure of moral light and understanding made available to him. Those who have the full knowledge of Yahveh's moral standards revealed to them through the law of Moses will be judged by that law. But those who did not have the fuller revelation of the law of Moses will not be judged by that law, but in accordance with the general revelation of Yahveh granted to the human race as a whole, through the wonders of creation. Luke 12:48. "For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more". Those who receive special revelation through Yahveh's word will be judged by a higher standard of moral knowledge. (Matt. 11:20-24)

What is the criteria for judgment at the great white throne? Judgment we be based on what they had done. And what they had done was ultimately reject Messiah and the free gift of salvation. Revelation 20:12 (old 20:15) says those who's names are not written in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire.

I would like to make a clarification regarding Hell and the lake of fire. Hades is the intermediate state (place) a persons spirit and soul go to after death. Hades is divided in two, one side for the saved, and one side for unbelievers. The lake of fire is commonly referred to as Gehenna in the Greek. Gehenna is a term that was derived from the burning garbage pits located outside Jerusalem. Messiah symbolically referred to Gehenna as eternal torment and separation from Yahveh. Revelation 20:11 indicates that death and Hades will be thrown into the lake of fire. The fact that Hades is thrown into the lake of fire proves that they are two different places. Hell, as a place of torment, is just as much a reality as Heaven, but people do not want to hear or talk about Hell. Most unbelievers live in a semi-quasi denial about the existence of hell. They also think that if there is a Hell, then it is only reserved for people like Hitler and Charles Manson. I have often wondered when Yahveh planned to have earth become the lake of fire. Did Yahveh plan it after the fall of man, or was it part of His original creation? Yahveh may have built in the earth the ability to become the lake of fire as an eternal punishment before sin even entered the world.

How do you respond to this question, "How can a loving Yahveh send a person to hell?" The answer to this question is related to your position of free will. We all have free will. A person sends themselves to Hell by rejecting Messiah, it's that simple. I do not think our simple little minds can even comprehend two concepts like eternity and Hell. We have the right to choose, Yah will never go against our will. We choose to follow Him or go to hell.

LAKE OF FIRE

The lake of fire will be the earth after Yahveh finishes dealing with the people on earth after the millennial reign and Satan's short period. The earth has built in it a mechanism to burn for eternity. When Dad created the earth, He must have designed it so that from its innermost, there will come fire and brimstone to burn for eternity. Those who didn't have their names written in the lambs book of life, and Satan, and all his secret agents, will end up together for eternity. That's a long time. (Isa. 24:20b)

The earth will be turned into a burning mass. 2Pet. 3:10 "Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise and everything in them will disappear in a fire and the earth and everything on it will be destroyed" Zeph. 3:8 "All the earth will be devoured by the fire of my jealousy"
Hebr. 1:10-11 "You Yahveh in the beginning created the earth and with your own hands you made the heavens. They will disappear, but you will remain"

Where is the eternal lake of fire? The earth as we know it will become a fiery planet for eternity. This is the lake of fire spoken of throughout our Bible. After all of humanity has been judged and the saints have been sent to their appropriate place, the unbelievers will be left on the earth to burn for eternity. Satan will be bound forever in the Abyss on the eternally burning earth.

How many books are there?

There are at least three that are noted. The "Lambs Book Of Life" is the main book with the names of all Believers in it. Then we have multiple books (at least two) that contain our deeds. (Dan. 7:10, 12:1 and Rev. 21:27)

Rev. 20:10 (old 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Rev. 20:11 (old 20:14) And death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. Rev. 20:12 (old 20:15) And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

HEAVEN ON THE NEW EARTH AND THE NEW JERUSALEM COMPARED

Most Believers have no idea what heaven on the new earth will be like. I will do my best to describe what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me.

First of all, remember, there are two heavens available for eternity. The lesser heaven (Kingdom) will be on the New Earth. The greater of course will be the New Jerusalem. The two are not comparable. The New Jerusalem is far superior to the heaven on earth.

Putting it bluntly, those "born again" Believers who truly invited Yeshua (even if they ignorantly used the wrong name of Jesus) into their heart verbally, will abide in the new earth heaven. Those (you might say typical Christians), who honestly love Yahveh and Yeshua but never did what He said to do in His word, will be there. This will consist of approx. 99% of all so-called Christians. They will, because of Yah's grace, get into heaven by the skin of their teeth. The other 1% are what the Bible calls, "the elect". The elect will go in to the New Jerusalem. The following verse has caused much confusion throughout Christendom because the pastors, leaders, and preachers have not properly understood it. This verse is one example of why many clergy will never see the gates of the New Jerusalem. Matt. 5:17-20 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others [to do] the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches [them], he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. "For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses [that] of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven." In these verses, it talks clearly about "LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN", compared to, "GREAT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN". Many clergy have failed this test and will never see the pearly gates of New Jerusalem because they have failed to lead people in the truth. Mostly because they themselves don't know the truth. For lay people this may be considered excusable, for those who claim to be shepherds (and get paid for it), much is expected, but little is given. For a detailed revelation of the Matthew 5:17-20 verses, please check it out on the "teaching page" of our web site.

Malachi states it well. Mal. 2:7-9 "For the lips of a priest should preserve knowledge, and men should seek instruction from his mouth; for he is the messenger of Yahveh of hosts. "But as for you, you have turned aside from the way; you have caused many to stumble by the instruction; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi," says Yahveh of hosts. "So I also have made you despised and abased before all the people, just as you are not keeping My ways but are showing partiality in the instruction." It is simply unacceptable for clergy to lead their sheep into confusion, which most have done. "From those who have been given much, much is expected". For this reason, I state that I believe many clergy will never get into the New Jerusalem.

Any ways, now that you are beginning to understand the difference between the two heavens, I shall explain how the heavens compare. The most simple way to compare the two heavens would be like comparing an eight inch black and white TV to a flat screen 61 inch digital satellite picture on a stereo television. If you take all the beauty of heaven on earth and magnify it in every way, you will get some idea of how they compare. The splender of the New Jerusalem cannot be worthily described in any language know to mankind. I will attempt to do it as best I can.
• The citizens in heaven will all be clothed in white robes.
• The mansion's on a hill that most saints have heard about are in the New Jerusalem only.
• There are houses, structures there in the earthly heaven. There is no need however for shelter, because there is no weather in heaven. It is a very warm temperature all the time.
• There are no shadows in heaven because Yah's glory is everywhere.
• There are no meeting places such as churches in heaven. The Temple of Yahveh is in the New Jerusalem only.
• Those on earth will not be in the presence of the Most High, as many assume.
• There will be no oceans, or bodies of water on earth or in the New Jerusalem, however there are mountains and valleys. There is a river of the living water of the Holy Spirit extending out with tributaries everywhere. This clear water feels like satin slipping through your fingers when it is poured over your hands.
• People in heaven will look similar to what they looked like on earth, except their features will be gloried. They will have spiritual/celestial type bodies that will be as recognizable as on earth as they were before the end of time on earth.
• Regardless of what age one was when they died, there will only be two noticeable age groups in either heaven. Those under the age of accountability and those over that age of 13. All will look glorious and pure, with no spots or blemishes.
• There is no TIME in heaven. Yah is TIME. The only reason time exists is when one is away from Yah. He is like the center hub of a wheel. Time only exists when you get away from the center.
• People will eat the twelve fruits of the trees of life.
• People will drink wine made by Yah Himself.
• Flowers, trees, grass, etc., will exist in a physical state. You will be able to feel and touch them, but they will be incredibly beautiful in their essence, color and fragrance. I would best describe it as "ELECTRIC COLORS". Perfect in every way.
• Pets will be available to those on earth if they desire them.
• There are gondola type vehicles on a type of rail, that will transport people rapidly wherever they want to go.
• There will be no sin possible in heaven.
• There will be no diseases of any kind in heaven.
• All the great holy men and women of the Biblical stories that most are familiar with, will exist in the New Jerusalem only. They will be able to visit with those on earth at their will, but will not live there.
• Alters/insidors, will exist, each one in their own body form, as they depicted themselves when they were in the body of the host person on the old earth.
• Aborted babies and those who died because of birth control, will take on the features of the male and female partners who's seed they came from.
• All those children under the age of thirteen who died, will look as if they were grown up.
• Angels will be everywhere to help us with whatever our heart desires.
• We will dance, eat, and celebrate with the angels.
• We will not have any memories of our past life when we are in Heaven.
• The Torah will be our guide in heaven, as it was supposed to be, but wasn't in most cases, on earth. The Torah was then the "mark/target" to aim for, and will continue to be our target of perfection. The Torah will be on our heart, automatically followed.
• The Book of Revelation clearly talks about us being judged by our deeds (Rev.). In heaven we will have seniority according to our deeds on earth. "We were to store up our treasures in heaven, the good book said." That's why few will make it into the New Jerusalem. When Yeshua spoke of the "gate to heaven being narrow", He was referring to the New Jerusalem. We will have received from one to six crowns before we entered heaven, according to our holiness, and deeds, on earth. Our status in heaven will be the result of our works on earth.

THE NEW JERUSALEM (Rev. 21 and 22)

The New Jerusalem is in the shape of a cube, 1,400 miles cubed. The walls are broad and high, with twelve gates guarded by twelve angels and the names of the twelve tribes of Israel are written on the gates. There are three gates on each side. The walls of the city (216 ft. thick) have 12 foundations (layers of precious stones and jewels). They are; jasper, sapphire, agate, emerald, onyx, carnelian, chrysolite, beryl, topaz, chrysoprase, jacinth and amethyst. The 12 gates are made of pearls, each gate from a single pearl. The main street is pure gold as clear as glass. There is a temple in the city. There is no moon or sun, the glory of Yahveh illuminates the city. There will be no night, and the gates will never close. Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, no one who practices shameful idolatry, and dishonesty, but only those elect whose names are written in the Lambs Book Of Life. The main street has a clear, pure river down the center and on each side there will be trees of life bearing 12 fruits with a fresh crop each month.

What is the significance of the pearly gates? Heaven is entered through suffering, through redemption, through blood, and the agony of the stake. A PEARL is a beautiful jewel that is formed by the SUFFERING, caused by the irritation of a wound, of a little animal. Without the WOUND, the jewel would never have been formed. We, as Believers, are the JEWELS on the crown of the KING OF KINGS AND MASTER OF MASTERS. We suffered persecution to get into the New Jerusalem, that is why we enter heaven through gates of pearl!

Many people get confused about the passage in the book of John. John 14:1-2 "Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in Yahveh, believe also in Me. "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. This is referring to the NEW JERUSALEM ONLY. Those who are on the heaven on earth will not live even close to the way those elect in the New Jerusalem live.

The "New Jerusalem" as per Revelation 21 and 22 will hover above the earth for 1000 years after Yeshua comes back, until the devil is destroyed in the earth as it becomes the lake of fire. A new earth (with no oceans) will appear, and the new heaven (New Jerusalem) will hover above the new earth for eternity.

At the time of the millennial reign the elect saints will live in the New Jerusalem, which will hover above the earth. The secular people will live on the earth. These people will live in poverty on the earth. They will suffer greatly because they refuse to accept Yeshua. They will be abundant. Their life on earth will be horrible.

As Jesse Duplantis (once a holy man) describes, in the New Jerusalem we will move around in things like large cars, gondola's, that will usher people to and fro rapidly.

INTERESTING NOTES ABOUT THE HEAVENS AND THINGS ASSOCIATED WITH THEM
• Yeshua was the first one to go to Heaven, that's one of the reasons why He is called the "First Fruit". 1Cor. 15:20 "But now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep." John 3:13 "And no one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven, {even} the Son of Man."
• The ELECT be allowed to have animals if we so desire in the New Jerusalem Heaven. The animals in heaven will be like the original ones Yah created in the Garden Of Eden, before they became unclean.
• There will be no shadows in heaven, Yah's light is everywhere.
• We will communicate telepathically in heaven. (Luke 8:17)
• Adonai tells us that all "souls" belong to Him. Ezek. 18:4 "Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die."
• Heaven is often called Paradise in the scriptures, Paul talks about a man who went to heaven in 2Cor. 12:2-4 "I know a man in Messiah who fourteen years ago andemdash;whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, Yahveh knows andemdash;such a man was caught up to the third heaven. And I know how such a man andemdash; whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, Yahveh knows was caught up into Paradise, and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak." Paul was the man spoken of here. The two criminals that died on Calvary at the same time as Yeshua, were told by Yeshua Himself that they would go to "Paradise". Rev. 2:7 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of Yahveh.'
• We are citizens of Heaven if we follow Yeshua. (Phil 3:20)
• There will be no time in heaven, but trees will bare different fruit periodically. Rev. 22:2 "in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river were the (tree) trees of life, bearing twelve {kinds of} fruit, yielding (its) their fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." (corrections made) The taste of the fruit in the New Jerusalem will be much greater than the fruit in the earthly heaven.
• When innocent people and children die we fail to understand why Yahveh would let this happen. In Isa. 57:1-2 it explains "The righteous man perishes and no man takes it to heart and devout men are taken away while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil. He enters into peace. They rest in their beds"
• There is no recognition of marriage in heaven so it doesn't matter how many husbands or wives one had on earth. No marriage will take place in heaven. (Mark 12:25)
• Neither flesh nor blood (our old nature), can go to heaven 1Cor. 15:50
• There are three sets of books in heaven. One is the "Book Of Life" which contains the names of all people who are born again and remain True. The other books contain everything that everyone has ever said and done, in detail.
• The only one I have ever heard describe reasonably accurate what the New Jerusalem will look like is a spirit filled man by the name of Jesse Duplantis. In his personal testimony, called "close encounters of the God kind', he describes very well his personal vision of the New Jerusalem, even though he though it was heaven, singular.
The phrase "seventh heaven" should not be used by Believer's; it comes from the Koran (Quoran).
• People in Heaven will not feel bad about their friends and relatives because they won't know that they are in hell. There can be no grief or sorrow in heaven, because they know that Yahveh has been totally fair to everyone and that everyone has had the same opportunity to believe and be saved. (1John 3:2, and Rev. 21:4)
• You should look forward to that day and hurry it along, the day when Yahveh will set the heavens on fire and the elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world where everyone is right with Yahveh. (2Pet. 3:12)
• Yeshua spoke twice as much about hell than heaven in the Renewed Testament.
• John Newton (hymn song writer) once said he expects to see three things in heaven; 1. people he didn't think he would see. 2. to not see people he expected to see.
3. to find himself there.
• There will be no night in the Heavens because of the light of Yahveh and Messiah.
• There will be a temple in the New Jerusalem where Yahveh and Yeshua will be.
In the end when we are in Heaven we will be as we were created originally. We will be both male and female. We will not have both male and female parts, but we will be like at the beginning of time. That is why it says there will be no need for marriage or companionship in Heaven. Matt. 22:30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.” In Hebrew “woman” means “out of man”. Adam means “from the earth”. In the Garden of Eden when Adam was made in the image of Yah, Eve was in Adam. When Yah created man he had both sexes in him. When Yah made woman, He took a rib out of Adam.
• There will be no such thing as pain, depression, guilt, hate, anger, etc., in either heaven. There will be no need for glasses, hearing aids, etc..
• There is a unpassable void between the two heavens that only those in the New Jerusalem can penetrate, with Yahveh's permission.
• Everyday will be the same in both heavens. There will be no division of days because there is no time.
• All citizens will be able to speak and comprehend (communicate), in all languages known to mankind.
• There will be no further need to speak in tongues in heaven.
• The "Kingdom Of Yahveh," the Kingdom Of Heaven," and the "Kingdom," mentioned in the bible, all mean the same thing. The "Kingdom Of Yahveh" is mentioned over 70 times in the Renewed Testament, but the "Kingdom Of Heaven" is only used in the Gospel of Matthew.
• Individuals will be noticeably male or female, but won't have reproductive organs.
