He saw holy angels, some that we the size of men, others the size of trees, and some the size of mountains, as well as ones as big or bigger than the earth. They were all flying to and fro busily. They came to him singing and then said to him, "Welcome! Welcome!" And they were all smiling.
He saw the Holy City, which was made of gold, glass and diamonds, and he entered through its tall, golden gates. He walked on the streets of gold inside the Holy City. He met Jesus there, who had nail holes in his hands and feet and was wearing a white robe with brown sandals and a purple sash around His chest.
The Lord showed him the River of Life that was so pure and clear that you feel thirsty just looking at it. The Lord told him to wash his face with its water, which he did by splashing some of the water on his face with his hands. His face dried off immediately afterward without the use of a towel. Then the Lord gave him a mirror to look at himself, and he saw that his face was very bright without any marks at all, and his eyes were very bright. Everyone in heaven looks new, and nobody has wrinkles, glasses, gray hair, or sickness. They all look as if they are in their twenties and not more than thirty years old. Even the Lord Jesus Himself looked like He was in His twenties or at the most thirty.
The Lord took him to a place where he saw thousands of angels all gathered together in one place like a great choir. As soon as he and the Lord arrived, the music began playing. He did not see any instruments, but the music was everywhere and he could hear all the instruments very clearly right in his ears. The angels' voices were amazingly beautiful as they sang. He was led to sing along with them and he was given a beautiful voice to sing with. In fact, he was given several voices to sing with, and he sang for what seemed like forever.
At the end of his trip to heaven, the Lord led him to the gates of the city and told him he needed to go back to the earth and tell everyone what he saw. He was commanded to tell everyone, both those who believe and those who do not believe. He was told that when he speaks to anyone about it, if they do not believe him, then he should go on to the next person. He was told that this message is not for one particular church, but for all the churches.
Then he told the Lord that he wasn't going back to the earth, but that he was going to remain there in heaven, so the Lord asked him why. He replied that on earth there is suffering, sickness, and pain, and he was tired of that. But the Lord told him in a very gentle voice that he had a mission to fulfill for God back on earth and when his work is finished, then the Lord will take him back up to heaven forever. He agreed to go back to earth, and as he walked toward the gates, they opened for him. As he walked through, he turned to wave at the Lord and the angels. When he turned to leave, and then he awoke back into his body on earth.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
