Starry Night

infinite space

Heaven. According to the Jewish there are three heavens.

The first heaven is the Earth’s atmosphere. Gen 1:20 KJV
“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”

The second heaven is the physical universe called outer space. Gen 1:14 KJV
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”

These two heavens constitute a continuum called the “firmament,” and this firmament is collectively called “Heaven”. Gen 1:8 KJV
“And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”

The Third Heaven is above the upper sea and the higher sea is below the Throne of God. Revelation 4:6 KJV
“And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.”

who hasn’t wondered
about life?
i would love to meet them.
how wonderful
to sail through,
not a care in the world.
no one ever imagines
the pain that exists
around sharp corners.
do you avoid the dark?
I do.

Genesis 1:16 God made two great lights–the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars.

Deuteronomy 4:19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars–all the heavenly array–do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.
