When you hear the word “heaven”, how do you interpret it? Celestial Kingdom? All the kingdoms of glory? Something else?

6 thoughts on “What is heaven?

  1. Alma 18

    28 And Ammon said: This is God. And Ammon said unto him again: Believest thou that this Great Spirit, who is God, created all things which are in heaven and in the earth?

    29 And he said: Yea, I believe that he created all things which are in the earth; but I do not know the heavens.

    30 And Ammon said unto him: The heavens is a place where God dwells and all his holy angels.

    31 And king Lamoni said: Is it above the earth?

    32 And Ammon said: Yea, and he looketh down upon all the children of men; and he knows all the thoughts and intents of the heart; for by his hand were they all created from the beginning.

    ‘Nuff said.

          1. I think that is the meaning of “The heavens is a place where God dwells and all his holy angels.” But that is an opinion, I suppose, as I have not gazed into heaven.

            Joseph said, “Could you gaze into heaven five minutes, you would know more than you would by reading all that ever was written on the subject” (TPJS, p. 324; cf. HC 6:50). He also declared that “the best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask it from books, but to go to God in prayer, and obtain divine teaching” (TPJS, p. 191).
