15-The Astral world is the Second Heaven

Howard Pittman, a Baptist minister for thirty-five years, died while on the operating table during surgery and had a near-death experience. He was taken on a tour of the Second Heaven under the protection of an Angel.

In his book “Demons, An Eyewitness” http://www.unleavenedbreadministries.org/demons-pittman.pdf, he describes the complex, hierarchical caste-system society demons live in the second Heaven and how each group of demons is assigned to specific tasks in their area of expertise.

Five groups of demons were emphasized and he was able to observe their activities. One of those are the demons that possess skills in the area of the dark arts, such as witchcrafts, false religion, self-destruction, fear, magic, sorcery, occult, ESP, related psychic phenomena such as healings and miracles, necromancy, speaking with the dead, ghost appearance, aliens, etc.

These highly specialized demons have no problem creating a counterfeit paradise that feels completely, utterly blissful and peaceful.

If God and Jesus live in the third heaven, then the first heaven has to be our earth and the natural creation. The second heaven then has to be a spiritual heaven. Satan is called the prince of the power of the “air” in the Bible. He and his demons work through a dimensional wall from the second heaven into the air, the first heaven. I believe Satan and his fallen angels were cast out of the third heaven where God and Jesus live long before we humans were ever created. Satan had rebelled against God before we were ever created and thus was cast out of the third heaven down into the second heaven. This is why the Bible calls Satan “the prince of the power of the air” Here is the verse that specifically tells us this:

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.” (Ephesians 2:1-2)

The Bible warns that the supernatural world (the second heaven) can make contact with humans if a human gives permission for its entrance. That open door allows the spiritual being (sometimes seen as an angel of light: II Corinthians 11:14) to control whoever submits himself to its spiritual power (Genesis 6: 2 – 4).
Obviously these “heavenly” beings are not God’s ministering angels who only do His bidding for His purposes, but they belong to Satan’s legion, are possessed with his diabolical and rebellious source, and are known as fallen angels, a hierarchy of evil powers and principalities of wickedness “. (Ephesians 6:12). (from Caryl Matrisciana,
Out of India, chapter 12).

For :such are false apostles, deceitful workers, fashioning themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for the very Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. 15 No great thing therefore if his :ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose :end shall be according to their:works.”

    i do think satan lives in 2nd heaven

    • Answer: Satan was originally one of God’s holy angels, but he rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven (Luke 10:18). That was only the first stage of his judgment. Satan’s kingdom was vanquished at the cross (John 12:31–32). Later, he will be bound in the abyss for one thousand years (Revelation 20:1–3) and then will be cast into the lake of fire for eternity (Revelation 20:10).

      Until his final judgment, Satan is “the prince of this world” (John 14:30), but it seems that he still has restricted access to the heavenly realms. In Job 1:6, Satan stands in the presence of God. There is a similar situation in 2 Chronicles 18:18–21 involving a “lying spirit.”

      Since God is holy and absolutely without sin (Isaiah 6:3), and since He will not even look on evil (Habakkuk 1:13), how can Satan be in heaven? The answer involves God’s sovereign restraint of sin. In Job 1, Satan stood before God to give an account of himself. God initiated the meeting, led the proceedings, and remained in absolute control (verse 7). The result was that Satan’s power was limited (verse 12) and God was glorified.

      Here are some other facts to note: 1) Satan does not have open access to God’s presence. He is summoned by God. 2) The visits are temporary. His time before God’s throne is limited. 3) In no way is the purity of heaven tainted by the brief, God-ordained presence of a sinful being, “quarantined,” as it were, by God’s regulatory power. And, 4) Satan’s access is only granted prior to the final judgment. After the judgment, God creates a new heaven and new earth (Revelation 21:1), wipes away all tears from our eyes (verse 4), reveals the New Jerusalem (verse 10), and promises the complete absence of sin (verse 27).

      When we say, “God cannot allow sin into heaven,” we simply mean that God cannot allow human beings who are still in their sin to live in His presence. But it is possible for God to command a sinful being to stand (temporarily) in His presence in order to commission him (Isaiah 6), to exact an account from him (Job 1-2), or to judge him (Revelation 20:11–15) without compromising His holiness.

      God’s holiness will eventually consume all sin. Until that day, His holiness regulates sin, and that means that Satan, on certain occasions, is briefly summoned before his Creator to give an account of his actions.

    Very interesting….you know – something I have wondered about. In India….there are some times that I have felt that the divine is feminine. Meaning – at times, I would just have a strong sense of a “divine” presence, and it was feminine – very feminine, fertile, like an aphrodisiac. I think it may have been in one of your other articles – or if not, somewhere else – that it was mentioned that the kundalini force is referred to as feminine as well. I wonder if that feeling – really, almost heavenly, that I sometimes have gotten in India, that was very feminine, had anything to do with the world of the fallen angels, as you mention they can make it seem like a pleasant heaven. Lots of food for thought here.
