the place [makown] of his habitation [yashab]
he looketh [shagach] upon all the inhabitants [yashab] of the earth ['erets]. KJV-Interlinear
where he sits enthroned he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth, ESV
From the place of Gods habitation. And where is that? Heaven, of course. And it seems simple enough to understand, but heaven is outside of creation.
Remember that Heaven has always existed. This universe was created, while Heaven already existed.
Heaven is Gods home, and God has always had a home. God is eternal and therefore Heaven is eternal.
That means that this universe does have a limit, and probably many limits. What they are is beyond our ability to discover, to know, or even to understand.
If we could travel to the end of the universe, then we would be at the border of heaven, and that means taking just one more step in order to cross over into heaven. But man is not able to travel that far, or even know where that boundary is, let alone enter into heaven on his own.
That Bible makes that clear.
The angels can travel back and forth between heaven and earth, and they seem to be able to do it relatively quickly, so they can travel really fast or heaven is not necessarily at a far distance, but possibly in another parallel place or plane.
And again, that is beyond our comprehension.
We might learn that aspect of truth when we get to heaven. After all, those who have died, will be resurrected and will return to earth to be able to participate in that resurrection, and we all will return from heaven to the earth with Christ at His second advent. So, we will actually experience the traveling aspect of that trip from heaven to earth, and probably back and forth many times during our next life, during the Millennium.
But, all of this is speculation for the imagination.
Remember, that one of the exciting aspects of our eternal reward, is that it will be beyond our imagination, above and beyond all we can think or ask. And if you have a healthy imagination, then you should know that beyond imagination leaves a vast set of possibilities, possibilities that we cannot even begin to imagine.
God is in His heaven, and looks down and sees everything. There is nothing that God does not see. Nothing escapes His eyes. God is omnipresent, meaning that He is everywhere, and everywhere simultaneously. And that means that God is not contained or confined by time or space, as we are.
That means that God sees and knows everything and that you cannot hide, confuse, deceive, or otherwise escape God.
Do not play games. Do not ruin or sacrifice your spiritual life, by thinking that you can get away with something, or that you can have life both ways. God sets the rules. Ignore the rules and what happens?
