The following excerpt is taken from I Believe In Visions by Kenneth E. Hagin:

A Young Man’s Vision

Everyone was praying around the front, and I knelt on the platform beside a folding chair near the pulpit. I began to pray in other tongues, and I heard a Voice say, “Come up hither.” At first, I didn’t realize that the Voice was speaking to me. I thought everybody heard it.

I See Jesus

“Come up hither,” the voice said again. Then I looked and saw Jesus standing about where the top of the tent would be. As I looked up again, the tent had disappeared, the folding chairs had disappeared, every tent pole had disappeared, the pulpit had disappeared, and God permitted me to see into the spirit realm.

The Throne of God

Again I saw Jesus standing about where the top of the tent should be, and I went to Him through the air. When I reached Him, together we continued on to Heaven. We came to the throne of God, and I beheld it in all its splendor. I was not able to look upon the face of God; I only beheld His form.

The first thing that attracted my attention was the rainbow about the throne. It was very beautiful. The second thing I noticed was the winged creatures on either side of the throne. They were peculiar-looking creatures and as I walked up with Jesus, these creatures stood with wings outstretched. They were saying something but they ceased and folded their wings. They had eyes of fire set all around their heads, and they looked in all directions at once.

I stood with Jesus in the midst, about 18 to 24 feet from the throne. I looked at the rainbow first, at the winged creatures, and then I started to look at the One who sat upon the throne.

Jesus told me not to look upon His face. I could only see a form of a Being seated upon the throne. Jesus talked with me for nearly an hour. I saw Him as plainly as I ever saw anyone in this life. I heard Him as He spoke to me.

Looking Into Love

And for the first time I actually looked into Jesus’ eyes. Many times when relating this experience I am asked, “What did His eyes look like?” All I can say is that they looked like wells of living love. It seemed as if one could see half a mile deep into them, and the tender look of His love is indescribable. As I looked into His face and into His eyes, I fell at His feet.

I noticed then that His feet were bare, and I laid the palms of my hands on the top of His feet and laid my forehead on the backs of my hands. Weeping, I said, “O Lord, no one as unworthy as I should look upon your face!”

Jesus told me to stand upright on my feet. I stood up. He called me worthy to look upon His face, because He had called me and had cleansed me from all sin. He told me things concerning my ministry. He went on to say that He had called me before I was born. He said that although Satan had tried to destroy my life many times, His angels had watched over me and had cared for me.

Jesus told me that even as He had appeared to my mother before I was born and had told her, “Fear not, the child will be born,” I would minister in the power of the Spirit and would fulfill the ministry He has called me to.

Then He talked to me about the last church I had pastored, saying that at that time, February 1949, I had entered into the first phase of my ministry. He said, “Some ministers I have called to the ministry live and die without getting into even the first phase of ministry I have for them.” Jesus added that is one reason why many ministers die prematurely — they are living only in His permissive will!

God’s Permissive Will

For 15 years I had been only in His permissive will. I had been a pastor for 12 years and had been in evangelistic work for three. During those years, God permitted me to do it, but it wasn’t His perfect will for my life. And He said I hadn’t been waiting on Him; He had been waiting for me to obey Him.

Then He talked about the time I entered into the first phase of my ministry in 1949. He said I had been unfaithful and hadn’t done what He had told me to do; I hadn’t told the people what He had told me to tell them. I answered, “Lord, I wasn’t unfaithful. I did obey You. I left my church and went out in the evangelistic field.”

“Yes,” He said, “you left the church and went out in evangelistic work. But you didn’t do what I told you to do. The reason you didn’t is because you doubted it was My Spirit who had spoken to you. You see, faith obeys My Word, whether it is the written Word of God or My Spirit who has spoken unto man.”

I fell down before Him, saying, “Yes, Lord, I have failed and I am sorry” I repented with many tears because I had missed His will and had doubted His dealings with me.

“Stand up on your feet,” He said. As I stood before Him again, He told me that I had entered into the second phase of my ministry in January 1950, and at that time He had spoken to me by prophecy and by the still small voice in my heart. In the next eight months, during this second phase of my ministry, I had believed, I had been faithful, and I had obeyed.

Now I was to enter into the third phase, He said. If I would be faithful to what He told me — if I would believe and obey Him — He would appear to me again. At that time I would enter into the fourth and final phase of my ministry.

Father, thank You for a greater revelation of what You have done for us
That we have been made free of the weight of sin
Your voice is directing us and leading us in the right way
Thank You that we have Your Word to stand strong upon
Lord, we know one step toward You can lead us in an entirely new direction
We are all ONE body, and we thank You for every part
By Your Spirit, we are being directed and led in the right way
We repent for the times we have missed it and settled for Your permissive will!
Lord, we want to walk in Your perfect will and do what You have called us to do
Thank You for the cross and what You did through Your Son for us
Father, we love You!
We take our rest in You and know that we will walk out the rest of our days in Your anointing and power
Today we take our place and make any adjustments that need to be made
Hidden things are being revealed
Declaring that we trust in You alone!
There are things that need to be prepared and lined up
We lift up those ways and call them to get in line
Pleading the blood over every detail, purpose, plan, and decision
The Master’s plan is being unfolded
Receiving new assignments
Whole churches going in the same way in Jesus’ name!
Healing is the dinner bell!
Lifting up specific dates before You
We prepare that way for You, Father
All of the parts of the body receiving direction and understanding
As a whole, we are contending and moving further by faith in Your Spirit
Believing for our eyes to see clearer on the side of fulfillment and provision
We will not be bound by the unknown or the impossible
By the Spirit, we are in a place of receptivity
We worship and honor You, Lord!
Help us to be still and know and hear that You are near!
