When I was 18, I had a throne room experience.  I saw a great throne with angels dancing around it.  There was metallic looking fire flaming around the One who was sitting on the throne. I was weightless with light shining through me.  I wanted to stay there forever.

This was a glimpse of God’s Glorious presence in heaven.

In 2 Corinthians 12: 2-4, we read of Paul’s ‘throne room’ experience.

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.  And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—  was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell.

I reckon when Paul was being persecuted he remembered being caught up in the third heaven, and thinking, “I’ll be there soon! And I want to bring as many with me as possible!”

Lord, today I fix my eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. I eagerly await our time together in eternity. Anoint me to bring heaven to earth today, in all I do.  Amen.
