7 Heavens (Christian)

7 Heavens (Christian)
The Christian sequence has the 1st heaven as the lowest and 7th as the highest.
The Arab sequence of Ibn Arabi is in reverse order.
 
For the seven heavens, we are told, utter each its own vowel sound, the first A and so on; and it was the sound of their united doxology borne to the earth, which gave generation to all things on the earth. By the descent of Him who was with the Father from the nine into the seven, the groups of Aeons were equalized and perfect harmony produced.
