VISION: I saw a reoccurring vision this week and saw it again last night.  It is a ladder going to heaven.  It is very steep and goes way, way up and is well lit.


HEARDYou are on this ladder. 


Rev 4:1

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."


Rev 11:12-13

And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.


The Word "Porthole" is scriptural, both in the OT and NT:


Gen 28:12-17

Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: "I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. 14 Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. 15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you." 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it." 17 And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate {8179} of heaven!"



sha`ar (shah'-ar); from OT:8176 in its original sense; an opening, i.e. door or gate:

KJV - city, door, gate, port (X -er).


Rev 4:1

After these things I looked, and behold, a door {2374} standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."



NT:2374 thura (thoo'-rah); apparently a primary word [compare "door"]; a portal or entrance (the opening or the closure, literally or figuratively):

KJV - door, gate.



John 1:50-51

Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these."  And He said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."







From the book Prison to Praise

"I saw a beautiful, bright summer day.  The air was filled with light, and I had a sense of everything being very beautiful.  Up above was a heavy, solid black cloud beyond which nothing could be seen.  A ladder extended from the ground up into the black cloud.  At the base of the ladder were hundreds of people trying to get a chance at climbing the ladder.  They had heard that above the blackness there was something more beautiful than anything a human eye had ever seen, something that brought unbelievable joy to those who reached it.  As a person after person tried to ascend they quickly climbed to the lower edge of the clouds.  The crowd watched to see what would happen.


In a short while the person would come wildly sliding down the ladder and fall into the crowd scattering people in all directions.  They reported that once they got into the blackness they lost all sense of direction.


My time finally came, and as I made my way up the ladder into the blackness it grew so intense that I could feel its power nearly forcing me to give up and slide back.  But step by step I continued upward until suddenly my eyes beheld the most intense brightness I had ever seen.  It was a brilliant whiteness to glorious to describe in words.  As I came out above the dark cloud I realized that I could walk on top of it.  As I looked into the brightness I was able to walk without difficulty.  When I looked down to examine the nature of the cloud I immediately began to sink.  Only by looking at the brightness could I stay on top.


Then the scene changed and I was back looking at all three levels from a distance.


"What does it all mean?" I asked, and the answer came:


"The brightest sunshine below the cloud is the light that many Christians live in and accept as normal.  The ladder is the ladder of praising Me.  Many try to climb and learn to praise Me in all things.  At first they are very eager, but when they get into things that they don't understand they become confused and cannot hold on.  They lose faith and go sliding back.  As they fall, they injure other people who have been hoping to find a way to live in continual joy and praise.


"Those who make it through those difficult times reach a new world and realize that the life they once thought of as normal cannot be compared to the life I have prepared for those who praise Me and believe that I carefully watch over them.  He who reached the light of the heavenly kingdom can walk on top of difficulties no matter how dark they may seem as long as he keeps his eyes off the problem and on My victory in Christ.  No matter how difficult it may seem to trust Me to work in every detail of your life, keep clinging to the ladder of praise and move upwards!"

From the book Heaven Awaits the Bridge


{Anna had seen a 60 story battering ram crushing and rolling over people and breaking through the wall called THE CHURCH, into the city and leaving only debris.  She was later told that the living stones of Christ's true church were safe, having either climbed the stairway, hidden in saves or floated on the water.}


"Suddenly an angel began to fly beside me.


"Where can I hide from the battering ram?"  I shouted as I ran.


"The battering ram rolls relentlessly over all the earth now.  Up high," the angel said, {up higher than it can see is the only safe place. Let me show you."


With a wave of the angel's hands, a stairway appeared, touching the earth and reaching beyond my view into heaven.  I moved in the base of the stairs and looked up. I was still heaving from running.


The angel flew beside the stairs, higher than its base on Earth, and waved me upward:  "Come on!"  the angel shouted.  "The ram is coming, and we don't want him to see this stairway.  Come on!"


There were no hand rails on the narrow stairs.  The stairs were clear like glass, which can be slippery.  I could hear the batter ram rolling:  "Faster! the angel called.


I kept my eyes on the stairs.  In his hands the angel had a scarlet cord fastened to the stairs at the bottom.  I could hear the battering ram getting closer, but the angel pulled the cord and brought up the first section of the stairway, like attic stairs that can be lowered and raised.


"Hurry!" the angel urged.  I continued to run up the steps, breathless.  The angel pulled the thin rope, and another section of the stairs rose.


"Keep climbing," the angel said, although now his tone of voice was less urgent.

With a mighty effort, I completed the stairs and turned to make sure I had indeed escaped.  The battering ram was directly below, rolling beneath us as the third section of the stairs was pulled up.


"You were safe after climbing the second set of stairs; but to be really sure, you needed to pass the third" he said.


Eph 1:21

far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.


As the battering ram rolled past, I tried to catch my breath and settle myself.  Only then did I look around.  "Where am I?" I asked.


"Paradise," the angel smiled, as he tied the cord holding the stairs to a docking post.  A sign above the post read STAIRPORT.


I looked out over the most beautiful park I had ever seen.  There were gentle rolling hills, bed so subtly colored flowers and grass as uniform and green as the rolled lawns of English manor houses.  A walking path crossed this part of the park.  There were also quiet pools, a stream, and luxuriant trees that on Earth would have provided shade, but there was no shade or any shadows here.  A soft light emanated from everything growing."


Anna shares as a sidebar:  "The area where one arrives first when entering heaven is called Paradise.  One then move to the celestial city - the heavenly Jerusalem - and finally to the throne of God the Father." 


Heb 12:22-24

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,


Another sidebar:  Anna said the word Paradise means "park or garden."  The Father designed the true Garden of Eden there especially for the Lord Jesus (song of Sol 5:1; 62:2; Ezek 28:13)  In His garden the original tree of life still grows.  (Rev 2:7)

About two weeks later, after spending his birthday (April 28) in Jerusalem for the first time, Pastor Shelley retired for the night and had an unusual and awesome divine experience. He was suddenly awakened to see a very, very large angel standing at the foot of his bed. When he reached over to try and arouse his wife, his arm became paralyzed and he was unable to touch her. Then he looked up and saw the white bedroom ceiling disappear as well as the roof. Only the night sky was overhead with the stars shining.


Then he was moved out of the bed and up into the air in a very unusual way - like flying. He was still wide awake and could see our neighborhood with its shops as he was being lifted higher and higher. Suddenly he came to a beautiful ladder with angels ascending and descending on it. The ladder was suspended somewhere between the old city of Jerusalem and the new city. He joined the line of ascending angels and effortlessly climbed the ladder.


Pastor Shelley then came to a realm of heaven where classes were being held. A multitude of angels were being taught by mortal men from past church ages that had gone into the Presence of the Lord. They were teaching these angels about the difficulty of life on the earth and the importance of the overcoming anointing. He was told by an angel that the overcomers from past ages were preparing the angels for what is ahead. These angels were being given instructions of where to go and what needed to be done. They were to bring breakthroughs, miracles, deliverances, etc.


One of the special purposes of these coming angels will be to announce destiny. They will reveal to each believer the fullness of his own destiny and will instruct each one as to what should be his next step.

From the book, 6 Big, Big Angels. 

Victoria Hanna-Rene Nasworthy


At the age of 4/5 Victoria's life was spared and she was taken to heaven and become a child seer.  The following was written by her grandmother as Victoria described seeing the ladder to heaven.


"She was about to describe passing the clouds and clue sky on the way up.  She told us that on the way to heaven, "We passed all the things I like.  We passed the trees... the birds.  all the clouds, the blue sky, and even the stars."


She saw the earth getting smaller and smaller.  She said it look like a little ball as she went up higher.  We asked her if the sky was black after she passed the blue part.  She looked at us as though we had lost our minds.  She said emphatically, "No!  Thur was lots and lots of angels and it was light.  Thur was a stairway to heaven and thus was angels all the way up to heaven." 


We believe this to be a protective corridor of angels to keep her safe while going through satan's territory on the way to heaven.  We asked her how high up she had to go to get to heaven.  She told us that God's house is, "way, way, way high." 


{End Victoria's quote}


PRAYER:  Lord we earnestly ask that You will give us eyes to look UP and not down at our circumstances.  Keep us from falling Lord, let us not get discouraged, lose our balance or our focus.  We have heard Your call to come up here and we so deeply want to come and be shown the things that are taking place.  Grant us Your grace to climb up and leave the world's focus and allurement behind.  Bid us oh Lord, and draw us to Your home.  Heaven here we come! 


Rev 4:1

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this."
