II Corinthians 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the heaven (1) and the heaven (2) of heavens (3) is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
I Kings 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven (1) and heaven (2) of heavens (3) cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
II Chronicles 2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven (1) and heaven (2) of heavens (3) cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?
II Chronicles 6:18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven (1) and the heaven (2) of heavens (3) cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
Nehemiah 9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven (1), the heaven (2) of heavens (3), with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
Three heavens is confirmed several times in God's word.
Psalm 33:6 By the word of the LORD were the "heavens" (plural) made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
Confirmation of creation through the speaking of God's word. The use of the word breath means that God used the sound of His voice to make it so.
Psalm 148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Three plural heavens.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Location of the reference of heavens (above the earth).
II Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Confirmation that the heavens were created with the appearance of age.
1) By the word of God....
2) The heavens were of old.
Here we see heaven being made old just by His word.
Psalm 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
Confirmation that even at the time of the laying of the faoundation of the earth, that it was old. So upon creation, it was made old. And because the word "Heavens" is used, all that is contained, besides the earth, was made old as well.
