LESSON 9

 

 

Jesus is carried up into heaven

 

  Luke 24:51  And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

 

 

Paul is caught up into the Third Heaven

 

  2 Corinthians 12:2,4  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. Verse:4  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

 

John is caught up into the Third Heaven

 

  Revelation 4:1-2  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 shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

 

What a glorious illustration of what is to come. A door was opened in Heaven, the trumpet sounded and called John to come up hither, and immediately he was there.

 

The Saints will be caught up together into Heaven

 

  1 Thessalonians 4:17  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

 

  1 Corinthians 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

 

  Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
