Luke 2:25-32

And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26.And it was revealed unto Him by the Holy Ghost that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27. And he came by the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for Him after the custom of the law, 28. Then took he Him up in his arms and blessed God and said; 29. Lord now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word. 30. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation 31. Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32. A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel." (KJV)

2 Corinthians 12:2-4

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. 3. And I know that this man whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows. 4. was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. (NIV)

The Apostle Paul was caught up; so what did he see?

He said whether it was in the body or out of the body, these things were not revealed to him.

Things he cannot express and only God knows what takes place in paradise.

He was aware of how weak he was and that all mysteries are of God and for Him and that whatever we do obtain in life, is all from God.
