Shining The Light On Demonic Functionality In The Second Heaven
The existence of the second heaven is probable due to the fact that the Bible speaks of a “third heaven,” and, if there is a third heaven, there must be a first
heaven and second heaven, too. The idea that more than one type of “heaven” exists is confirmed in Hebrews 7:26, which says that Jesus, our High Priest, is “exalted above the heavens”; in other words, Jesus is in a heaven beyond other heavens.
Genesis 1:6-8; Psalm 104:12 speaks of “the fowls of the heaven” (KJV) – this would be the first heaven, the atmosphere of Earth.
In Isaiah 13:10 we find “the stars of heaven and their constellations”—a reference to the second heaven, outer space.
Satanic activity lurks in the second heaven (Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 6:12)
THE SECOND HEAVEN IS THE HIGHWAY OF TRUTH. THE SECOND HEAVEN CONSISTS OFWAR OVER TRUTH THAT HAS BEEN RELEASED BY GOD FROM
THE THIRD HEAVEN (Ephesians 6:12).
GOD INTENDS FOR TRUTH TO LIBERATE US AND MAKE US FREE (John 8:32)
SATAN ATTEMPTS TO USE TRUTH TO ENTRAP US, PLACE US IN BONDAGE, AND TRANSGRESS THE WILL OF GOD (Eve – Genesis 3:1)

THE SECOND HEAVEN (Adam & Eve realized they were naked -God did not tell them that –Genesis 3)
SATAN RELEASES DUPLICATED, NON-AUTHENTIC TRUTH FROM THE SECOND HEAVEN (Matt. 4)
SATAN RELEASES DECEPTION FROM THE SECOND HEAVEN(Genesis 3;1-7; Rev. 12:9)
THE ANGELS OF GOD ARE DESCENDING AND ASCENDING
FROM GOD (third heaven-Genesis 28:10-22) CARRYING
TRUTH THROUGH THE SECOND HEAVEN (Daniel 10:12) TO THE FIRST HEAVEN IN ORDER FORTHE WILL OF GOD TO BE DONE IN EARTH TO THE SAME DEGREE
THAT IT IS DONE IN HEAVEN
THIRD HEAVEN –2 Corinthians 12:2; Revelation11:19 describes the opening of
“Godʼs temple in heaven”—the third heaven, or Godʼs dwelling place.
