Flesh and blood < humans> cannot live in the current Heaven, which gives the feeling of a physical separation between the current heaven and earth.

Will our new spiritual bodies allow us to freely/seamlessly move back and forth between the new heaven and new earth, making us citizens of both, AND/OR is the new heaven and new earth collectively referred to as "Heaven". I'm trying to understand what is being referenced when a pastor/ teacher/theologian refers to those who die in Christ "going to Heaven". I'm also trying to understand the function/purpose of the new earth when everyone is living in heaven.

Thank you for your reply! I had forgotten about 2 Corinthians 5. Maybe the understanding of how 2 Corinthians 5 bears witness to John's vision in Revelation (or vice versa) is in my future.

2 Corinthians 5 seems to refer to Christ-follower's souls changing clothes, so to speak: taking off the earthly/physical/mortal/corruptible bodies and putting on the heavenly/spiritual/immortal/incorruptible bodies. Christ-followers will reside in heaven with God.

Revelation, on the other hand, seems to refer to Christ-followers residing on the new earth and God dwelling with us on the new earth.

Is 2 Corinthians 5 and Revelation referring to the same time frame?

2 Corinthians 5 says, "For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad."
