The Scripture does speak of three heavens. The Lord Jesus used the term heaven when He spoke of the birds of the air. So we know that the first heaven is where the birds and aircraft fly in the air spaces around the earth.
The Lord Jesus used the expression “the stars of heaven.” The stars are beyond the atmosphere where the birds fly. The heaven where the stars are is the second heaven.
Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:2 mentions the fact that he was “caught up to the third heaven,” and that was the dwelling place of God. So hose are the three heavens mentioned in the Word of God.
It is interesting to note that the direction of all three of these heavens is north or up. We see the first heaven by day; the second heaven by night; the third heaven by faith.
