Was Heaven Created After Jesus Ascended?

Supposed contradiction and verses:

Was Heaven created in the beginning, or some time after Jesus ascended?

Matthew 25:34

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

John 14:2

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.


   Shall we consider first the absurd thinking this person has from the very beginning? In John 14:2, the skeptic tried to paint that as a picture of it not being made already. Jesus already says He is going to Heaven, so why would He go to Heaven just to create Heaven? That is very illogical. The fact of the matter is that it was created at the foundation of the world as pointed out in Matthew, and Jesus is going to prepare a place there for us. Does that mean an entire new Heaven is being made? NO!

   If you were coming to my house and I told you that I was going to get a place ready for you, would you expect that I was building a new house just for you to come? No, you would expect that I would get a room ready in my already built home by cleaning, putting new linens out, etc. No contradiction!

In His Grace,
