Heaven
« on: October 10, 2006, 10:35:58 AM »

Hello Ray,
 
Its Billy from Tampa here, and I wanted to ask you a quick question.  Before telling the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, Jesus said that no one has ascended into heaven except for he who came from it.  Isn't he talking about he himself (Jesus)?  But if so how can one explain the King of Babylon being cut down from heaven in the book of Isaiah?
 
Thank you,
 
Billy

 
Dear Billy:
"Heaven" has several meanings, as well as the fact that there are multiple "heavens."  "In the beginning God created the HEAVENS and the earth" according to the Hebrew.
 
When God refers to Babylon or Capernaum as being lifted up to "heaven," it is not referring to God's throne, but merely as being "high," "lofty," "exalted," etc.  Jesus, however, came out of the "heaven" of His Father's realm, not high up in the sky or from outer space.
God be with you,
Ray
