What is the "third heaven"?



The third heaven is where God dwells. The first heaven is the sky that can be seen from Earth during the day, the second heaven is the space that can be seen during the night, the third heaven is the spiritual place where God dwells.

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. (2 Corinthians 12:2)
