Where is heaven?

We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8

There are two heavens spoken about in the Bible.

Right now, the spirits of the dead who accepted Christ as their savior go to a spiritual place that exists in another dimension. It cannot be seen by human eyes. Jesus tells of this place in Luke 16. Your spirit exists in the presence of the Lord.

This is a type of spiritual heaven.

In the future, after Jesus returns and the Day of Judgment occurs, God will restore the earth back to its original design. A new heaven and a new earth will exist. This new heaven is a physical place that is populated with resurrected physical bodies.

This will be the new heaven and the new earth.  This is a physical heaven.

The first heaven is all about awareness, there is no physical address, but consciousness.  It exists in a dimension beyond that which we can see.

The second heaven definitely has a where-ness to it and the address will be a real place.
