“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
There are three heavens. The first heaven is the atmosphere above us and the cosmos; our physical world. The second heaven is our spiritual nature; Jesus refers to it when he said heaven is near because His Spirit lived in the second heaven but came from living with God. The third heaven is where God lives. When Jesus said He was going to prepare a place for us He was referring to the third heaven. The second heaven belongs to the Son of God, Jesus, as we live in our material bodies.
I like to also give a mathematical representation, the language of science, because everything that God does is perfect and forever implying perfect continuity (Uspace times Vspace = Q, the law, principles). In Isaiah 28:16; “So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.”
As in previous articles Uspace represent the perfect Righteousness of God giving perfect ordering to all things that exist as reflected in Isaiah 28:16. Vspace represent simply the nexus of all things that exist because the universe is in constant flux. Scientist has been filling the God Equation of Uspace x Vspace = Q for hundreds of years. All other disciplines are doing the same. In the biblical book of Genesis God created all things that exist (UspVsp=Q, for this is the stone that God laid), and later Isaiah stated that it was perfect after much observations by humans. We are constantly being conditioned to possess God’s Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of Truth that God sends from the world testifies of Jesus, the Son of God, and tells of things to come. God also sent to who believes in His Son a Comforter in the name of Jesus. We now have a concrete foundation to stand on and talk with God in the name of Jesus, His Son. The Lord’s Prayer is a beginning for each of us to talk and listen to God without creasing.
God created science and mathematics alone with all other things, Q’s. Every point in space and time is governed by God’s Perfect Righteousness giving perfect ordering to all that exist. God only knows perfect order. With God chaos doesn’t exist.
The second heaven was given to Jesus by God when He resurrected Jesus. Since Jesus died for our sins he paid a ransom in order to redeem us from our sins. Now, we can have heaven on earth with a taste of eternal life until God becomes a God to all people and we live forever with God in the third heaven.
JOHN 1:14; “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
JOHN 14:2; “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you.”
