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
such an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot
tell: God knoweth;)
4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it
is not lawful for a man to utter.
5 Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine
(New Testament | 2 Corinthians 12:2 - 5)
12 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, he touched every
one of them with his finger save it were the three who were to tarry, and then
13 And behold, the heavens were opened, and they were caught up into heaven, and
saw and heard unspeakable things.
14 And it was forbidden them that they should utter; neither was it given unto
them power that they could utter the things which they saw and heard;
15 And whether they were in the body or out of the body, they could not tell;
for it did seem unto them like a transfiguration of them, that they were changed
from this body of flesh into an immortal state, that they could behold the
things of God.
(Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 28:12 - 15)
115 Which he commanded us we should not write while we were yet
in the Spirit, and are not lawful for man to utter;
116 Neither is man capable to make them known, for they are only to be seen and
understood by the power of the Holy Spirit, which God bestows on those who love
him, and purify themselves before him;
117 To whom he grants this privilege of seeing and knowing for themselves;
118 That through the power and manifestation of the Spirit, while in the flesh,
they may be able to bear his presence in the world of glory.
(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 76:114 - 118)
