  • Ben weaver on John 3:13
    V.13. Heaven; (heaved up place). Possibly; (The higher spirit world). In Ephesians 6:12, the powers of evil are said to be in high (heavenly) places. This is from the same Gr. word as in Ephesians 1:20, where Jesus is now set (seated in a position of supreme authority).
    While Jesus was on earth, He was apparently also quite in touch with this spirit world, so He could rightly say "The Son of man, who is in heaven, as in a fourth dimension. In John 14:2-3, He says, "that where I am" (present tense), referring to his Father's house, there you may be also. Now catch this; In Ephesians 2:6, Paul says,"God has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus". It sounds like we are not only citizens of this 4th dimension heaven but in a position of authority as ambassadors for Christ, while being in Him. This is too wonderful for me to write about, and I plead for correction if needed. Jesus is Lord!
