This question is about the three heavens (or kingdoms) in Mormon cosmology: the celestial, terrestrial, and telestial.
The accepted answer to this other question says that
After the resurrection of the body, all people (except the very worst) will live in one of the three heavens. According to a vision of Joseph Smith, God dwells in the celestial kingdom, and Jesus and the Father are enthroned there.
According to Mormons the reward in heaven is attained after the resurrection in which the individual receives a physical (non-spirit) body. For this reason it would be reasonable that each of the heavens are on some planet-like body that supports biological life.
Also, the accepted answer to this other question indicates that God's Kingdom would rule over the earth after the Second Coming of Christ.
So the questions I wanted to ask are:
- Is the Kingdom of God that is expected to rule the earth the same ("politically" speaking) as any (or all) of the 3 heavenly kingdoms (celestial, terrestrial, and telestial)?
- Will the people living in any one of those 3 heavenly kingdoms actually be living here on earth?
