What is Heaven on Earth?
It is simply experiencing the realities of heaven in the now, that is, whatever is not obtainable in heaven, the throne of God, is not permitted to be found in and around us.
We must also appreciate the fact that there are two kinds of Heaven recognized in scriptures:
1. Present Day or Earthly – Lk11:20, 17:21, Rev. 12:12
2. The Heaven Great Beyond- The eternal heaven where the throne of God is domiciled 1Thess 4:13-17, Rev.22:3
It is interesting to note that these two heavens confer the dominion of the saints. Rev. 22: 1-5
