Firmament is heaven


Genesis 1:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
6 And God said, Let there be firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were UNDER the firmament from the waters which were ABOVE the firmament: and it was so. (So there is water ABOVE the firmament
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

14 And God said, Let there be lights IN the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (The lights IN the firmament are the sun, moon and stars)

15 And let them be for lights IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

17 And God set them IN the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life (Fish)and fowl that may fly above the earth (Birds) in the open firmament of heaven.



above the Firmament is a throne


Ezekiel 1:
26 And ABOVE the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:


Exodus 24:

10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.


Isaiah 40:

22 It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
