It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I KNEW A MAN in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) SUCH AN ONE caught up to the third heaven. And I KNEW SUCH A MAN, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that HE WAS CAUGHT UP into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful FOR A MAN to utter. Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities. For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be , or that he heareth of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 2 Corinthians 12:1-7. In the year that king Uzziah died I SAW ALSO THE LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Isaiah 6:1. THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST, WHICH GOD GAVE UNTO him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto HIS SERVANT JOHN: Revelation 1:1. There are a couple more people who also had seen into Heaven itself, but we'll start with these three. All speak with a Holy Reverent Fear of the Glorious Things they saw. They all fell as dead men at the Feet of Christ. Compare this Attitude to the attitude of the charlatans of today all claiming to have gone to heaven and seen things. They trip over themselves trying to outdo each other in book sales. {"charlatan":  A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge; a quack or fraud.} What Paul saw was too Glorious to be allowed to talk about. When you too see Christ, you will, Be Blessed.
