People often ask the question; "What will heaven be like?" Although the Bible discusses heaven, it is not possible to understand the full nature of heaven from a human perspective. Since heaven is where God lives, it contains dimensions unknown to this physical universe that God created. We cannot imagine, nor can we experience in our current bodies, what those other dimensions might be like, unless God chooses to show us. Even so, we are given enough information in the Bible to understand many of the things that will be different in heaven compared to the life we live here on this earth.

There is much evidence from both the Bible and from science that demonstrates God must exist and operate in dimensions of space and time other than those to which we are confined. God could have created the universe if He were a part of it, but seeing as how He created the heaven's and the earth while not yet formed, it was evident that He was not a part of either. Therefore, we must understand that He was separate from both, before He decided to create them as the Bible says in Genesis 1:1; "On the first day, God created the heaven's and the earth." God is in control and sustains all that we see around us and even that which we cannot see.

God's Holy Spirit is everywhere and can simultaneously hear and answer all the prayers that all people pray, at all times. Not only that, He can see all actions of all individuals - even those whose actions are done in secret. Nothing is hidden from God's sight. Hebrews 4:12-13; "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account."

The God of the Bible is described as omnipotent. If God were confined to three dimensions of space and one dimension of time, then He could be in only one place at one time. The God of the Bible is described as knowing all that we do. We can hide nothing from God. A three-dimensional God would not have the ability to see through walls (can you?) and could not know what happens outside of His sight.
