      New Heaven

      And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
      Revelation 21:1
      --------
      What does this mean exactly? What is Heaven now if there is a new Heaven?

      --------
      Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
      Luke 21:33

      --------

      From my understanding there are three, the sky, the stars, the throne

      2 Peter 3:11-13 You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

      At the end of Revelation, GOD makes his dwelling in the New Jerusalem with men and is the light that illuminates the city. Since Heaven is where GOD is, I believe that there is no longer a distinction between Heaven and Earth. The old Heaven (dwelling of GOD) and the old Earth (dwelling of men) are no longer necessary when God dwells with men, so He creates a new “HEAVEN AND EARTH” (combined) where GOD and men can dwell together.

      I don't think we really realize what it means and maybe we can't. One thing is for sure that it is far greater than we can imagine.
