As important as it is to know The Throne Room and the One who sits on the throne, God’s heaven, the Third Heaven, also has other advantages. As I mentioned before, I can enter the Second Heaven whenever I want, and if I want to fly around and visit places, that’s fine. I’ve never done that without an escort, and I don’t intend to until I am living in the Third Heaven; then my orientation will always be “home,” so it won’t matter if I get lost. Right now, my orientation is my body, and I always return there, but the desire to return to my body seems to be less and less, so I need an escort until my time on Earth is over.
When will my time be done? From what I read in the Bible, the time of my death is determined as much by me as it is by God. It says I will pass from life to death when I am satisfied. Well, I’m not satisfied. I have many books to write, and screenplays, and TV series, and so on. The Bible also says we can live for 120 years here before our lives are done. Besides, there are so many phony religions around whose goal is to eradicate Christianity, and if I can write something that draws people to the true, living God and His Son, Jesus Christ, then my children will not have to fight these ridiculous, religious wars. There’s much to be done for our Father, God Almighty. He will win every war, but He does it through us, so I want to do my part. For the time being, I content myself with visiting the Third Heaven, my future, permanent home.
After a few visits to the Throne Room, I became curious about the rest of the place. This was heaven, and I wanted to see my mansion! But I wasn’t invited right away to explore—or rather be led on an expedition. God’s domain is immense and is known as the Third Heaven. It’s where we will spend eternity, and I gathered that we mortals are not granted boundless visiting rights as we are in the Second Heaven. That’s because others are already there in their heavenly homes, and there is to be no connection between them and us. Paul spoke of being taken to the Third Heaven, which indicates there is a First and a Second Heaven. So I did some research on where they are.
Scholars agree that the First Heaven is where we live within the atmosphere of the earth. The Second Heaven is all of space outside the atmosphere and is everything we can see in the universe and any other universes science has discovered. That’s pretty big. But the Third Heaven is everything beyond what is known or can be encountered, and that is enormous and endless. It’s hard for the finite mind to grasp this concept; it’s something we have to accept as being accurate until we get there and see for ourselves.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surren-dered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
