Understand: our spiritual being (soul-spirit), our physical being (body-mind), 10 Disciplines for Bible study

 

Faithful; those who followed God before Christís death - Believers; those who loved Jesus after His death

 

God wanted children to love, who would love Him back, obey His commands; become His holy children and live

eternally with Him. God foreknew before He created our universe and all in it, that when He gave angelic

beings, men and women a free will so they could chose Him as their God; this free will would cause them to

disobey Him and sin. Foreknew His Son had to become a man, to die for the sins of those God foreknew would

love Him, become His children. So God designed a plan to save us before He created a universe, anything in it.

 

Outline of 3 spiritual, 4 physical Kingdoms God uses over 7,000 years; to make faithful/believers His children

 

There are 3 Heavenly Spiritual Kingdoms God uses in His plan to save us, make us His holy children.

God took Paulís spiritual being (soul, spirit) out of His physical body to show Paul His 3 Heavenly Kingdoms.

Paul named these Heavenly Kingdoms in the order his spiritual being passed through them from earth; we still

use these names. Yet the 3rd Heaven is really the 1st Kingdom, where God has always existed, will always exist.

 

Only Johnís spiritual being was also taken into the 3rd Heaven while he lived on earth. God revealed to John

His New Jerusalem in the 3rd Heaven, His 2 new creations yet to come, New Heaven/Earth, Hell/Lake of Fire.

 

(1) 3rd Heaven (First Kingdom) too big to imagine; always holy (sin never occurs here), always been, will always

exist with 2 eternal kingdoms God will later create within 3rd Kingdom. Hell for satan, his demons, all physical

unfaithful/unbelievers who ever lived; Godís Holy New Heaven/Earth for all His children who ever lived. satan

later takes sin into 2nd Heaven, 1st heaven over earth, earth; so they must pass away. Here our Father designs

creation before it even exists; when He will rule, when His Son will rule over it. New Jerusalem is located here

 

 

 

(2) 2nd Heaven (Second Kingdom); Godís 1st creation is His holy Spiritual Kingdom, with Temple on Mount Zion;

for angels to worship Him, watch Him create earth/people, help with Godís plan to save us. Here satan will commit 1st sin. After Jesus died for sin, faithful/believersí spiritual beings come here when our body dies

 

 

(3) 1st Heaven around earth (Third Kingdom); God created a Holy heaven over the earth, so the sun and

moon could give us light; physical mankind was to have control over this kingdom, the birds who flew in it.

 

 

4 Physical kingdoms

 

(4) Earth (Fourth Kingdom): God designed earth as holy physical kingdom for holy physical men/women to live

 

4a. #God designed spiritual chasm between Godís Rest/Abrahamís Bosom and Bottomless Pit; separating them#

 

4b. God designed a Bottomless Pit in earth, with a super-hot furnace under it; to hold (5) Hades, (6) Abyss

 

(5) Hades (Fifth Kingdom) God designed it in highest part of pit, with least heat of torment; to hold all the

unfaithful/unbelievers spiritual beings, when their physical body dies. Until White Throne Judgment, then Hell

 

(6) Abyss (Sixth Kingdom) God designed it in middle part of pit, with severe heat of torment. Holds unruly demonic spirits, who are turned out in 6th trumpet, cast into Tartarus with satan; later judged, cast into Hell.

 

(6a) Tartarus God designed a prison in Abyss, in lowest part of pit with worst heat torment; to hold most vile demons in chains. Angels like azazel, who became demons when married human women, had children with them;

who were giants. They are turned out in 6th trumpet, cast into Tartarus with satan, later judged, cast into Hell

 

 

(7) Hell/Lake of Fire (Seventh Kingdom); God designed everlasting place of torment, be created when Christ defeats beast/antichrist/man of sin, false prophet; who are 1st cast here. After Christís 1,000 year Kingdom,

satan cast here; then demons in Abyss judged, cast here. At White Throne Judgment all unbelievers living, all unbelieversí spiritual beings in Hades reunited to their resurrected bodies; cast here. Hells location unknown.
