Lesson 7

Marking Code: H
Marking Color: Yellow
Key Text: Isaiah 65:17, 19, 21-25


Note: There are three “heavens” spoken of in the Bible:

  1. The atmospheric heavens where birds fly (Genesis 1:20; Revelation 19:17).
  2. The stellar heavens where the planets and stars are located (Genesis 1:14-17; Psalm 19:1).
  3. Paradise where God lives (2 Corinthians 12:2-4).


This lesson is dealing with the “third” heaven-the home of God and the holy angels-and the place where God will take His redeemed people when Jesus comes. As we have seen in Lesson 6 (The Millennium), the redeemed go to heaven with Jesus at His coming, but after the 1,000 years, God will recreate the earth anew and make it the capital of his universal kingdom. The redeemed will live with Him on this beautiful new earth forever.
