Secrets of Heaven

Although the apostle John and the prophet Daniel lived about six centuries apart, they were both given to see (and record what they saw, to a limited degree) The Throne of God in heaven as it exists, not only in their time, but now. Only one other human is recorded to have had such a vision, the apostle Paul (see Paul's Ministry), but unlike John and Daniel, Paul was not permitted to write or speak of it, the difference apparently being that Paul heard things that Daniel and John did not (or at least did not write of, as Paul didn't).

"12:1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 12:2 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 [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above]. 12:3 And I knew such a man, whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth; 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Corinthians 12:1-4 KJV)

"Behold, a throne was set in heaven"

The account of what John saw is found in the book of Revelation (see The Ancient of Days to read Daniel's experience):

Heaven

"4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.

4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit; and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a Jasper and a Sardine Stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald."

4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings [see also Thunder] and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 4:6 And before the throne there was a Sea of Glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

4:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle [see also Cherubim]. 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever [see How Old Is God?], 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." (Revelation 4:1-11 KJV)
