Where is Paradise?
"For Heaven's Sake!"

What we learn from religious institutions is not always commensurate with the truth of the actual Scriptures. Here we researched for you what the Bible actually says about the terms Paradise and Heaven

When Jesus was crucified, there were two criminals hanging on crosses beside Him. One of them confessed that he was sorry about his actions and said to Jesus: (Luke 23:42)

"Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom. 43 And Jesus said to him, Surely I say to you, Today shall you be with me in Paradise!"

Now we know from other Scriptures that Jesus did not go UP to his Father--God the Father of spirits--until after His resurrection! This is obvious from the story where Mary Magdalene stood outside the tomb weeping, because the body of her Lord had disappeared and she had seen Angels who told her that Jesus was alive, but because she didn't see Him anywhere, she was quite confused and broken up about it. In this state, Jesus came to her in His resurrected body and said to her: "Woman why are you weeping!"
She thinking him to be the gardener, said to him,

"Sir, if you took away His body, please show me where you laid him, and I will take him away!"

She didn't recognize Him! Then Jesus
said, "Mary!"

She spun around, suddenly recognizing His voice and cried: "Rabboni!" (Master!) She was about to throw herself in His arms—which didn’t seem to be strange for them obviously, under normal circumstances—but this time Jesus stopped her in her tracks from doing so! He said something very significant to her. [John 20:17]:

"Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father! But go to my brethren, and say to them, I go up unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

So, according to this and other Scriptures, in all the three days that His body was dead in the tomb, His spirit had not yet ASCENDED--GONE UP--to see the Father! So that raises the question: If Jesus' Spirit didn't go up...where was He during this time, these three days?

Well, according to what He said to the thief, on the first day he was going to be in PARADISE with the thief! Now, if he had not gone UP to go see His Father in Paradise in Heaven, He must have gone to another Paradise, where the Father obviously didn't live!
So there must have been at least TWO Heavenly Realms, at that time! Logical?

 

Where Were These Heavenly Realms?
