And he told them, "Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God's right hand!"
He saw the sky open, and something like a large sheet was let down by its four corners.
Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this."
