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):
"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.
Fact Finder: The Throne of God is now in heaven. When is it coming to earth?
