HEAVEN – In the Bible there are three different heavens. Paul referred to the third heaven (2 Cor. 12:2). The first heaven refers to the place of air, birds and clouds (Matt. 6:26). The second heaven is the place of the stars (Gen. 1:14). The third heaven is the dwelling place of God (Matt.5:16; Rev.3:12). SWM always capitalizes Heaven. It is a true place the same as Atlanta is a place.

HEBREW – Abram was the first person to be called a Hebrew or a Jew (Genesis 14:13). All of Abraham’s descendants are known as Hebrews or Jews (Genesis 40:15). Hebrew and Jew are one and the same word referring to the chosen nation and people of God. Hebrew was also the language of the Old Testament.

HELL – The word Hell appears 12 times in the New Testament, and each time it was used by the Lord. It refers to the eternal state of the unsaved (Matt. 5:22,29,30; 11:23; 16:18). It is known as a place of fire (Luke 16:23), suffering (Matthew 13:42), second death (Rev. 20:6). It is the opposite of Heaven. It is best to capitalize Hell because it is a true place the same as Atlanta is a place.
