  • In 2 Corinthians 12;2 Paul talks about A third heaven From what I understand the are different levels of heaven. The sky, space and actual heaven

  • I don't believe there are. I believe there is one level, one heaven. :)

  • I don't know if they are actual levels, but I do think there might be different stages depending on our spiritual growth or connection. I don't really know what Heaven is like though, it's interesting to think about but I'll have to wait until I get there to know.

  • The closest thing Scripture says to there being different levels of heaven is found in 2 Corinthians 12:2 in which Paul was talking about a "third heaven" In many ancient cultures, people used the term “heaven” to describe three different “realms”—the sky, outer space, and then a spiritual heaven. No where in the Bible does it suggest there are different levels of Heaven for the believer. If you are really good, you go to the best level, closest to God. If you are not so good, you go to the lowest level. This view has no scriptural basis. While the Bible does talk about different rewards given to the believer, it doesn't suggest different levels of Heaven.

  • Heaven is the current name for the "good" afterlife. In previous religions (Greek ,Egyptian, etc), yes there were several different levels depending on what type of lifestyle you led.

  • Heaven wasn't created by the Bible or Christianity, it was already an idea before they came along :)

  • There are nine levels of Heaven named after the Choir of Angels.
    1. Seraphim
    9. Angels
    The ones that are closest to God are the Seraphim, the ones that are closest to us are the Angels
