After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” (Rev 4:1 ESV)
John was shown the wondrous and glorious heaven.
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven–whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. And I know that this man was caught up into paradise–whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows– (2Co 12:2-3 ESV)
Apostle Paul was referring to himself; his own spirit man was caught up to the third heaven.
Experiencing third heaven, a place where the paradise of God, place of throne room, should be natural in a Christian life. We cannot have a close relationship without an experience. It’s same like a bride who says to her bridegroom that she will follow and fulfill whatever is written in the marriage covenant but she doesn’t want and have no desire to have any ‘experience’ or intimate relationship with him. How will the bridegroom feel? When Christians do not want to experience God and reject things which are supernatural, how will God feel?
In the Old Testament, I believe King David ascended to heaven on a regular basis.
If I ascend to heaven, you are there! …(Psalm 139:8a ESV)
What is the secret of King David that enables him to access to the throne room on regular basis? The secret is the ‘one thing’! The “one thing” in his life that he desires- that is to please God.
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple (Psalm 27:4 Amplified Bible)
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. (Psalm 63:1-2 ESV)
The one thing that David desires is His presence, beholding His power and glory. Not only that, David delights himself to meditate on God! Meditate in Hebrew word is ‘hagah’ which means to read out loud.
When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches (Psalm 63:6 KJV).

During CKRM Malacca Supernatural and Anointing Ministry on 27 March 2010, The Lord confirmed His word by accompanying signs. I was sharing that we have been given access to the throne room/ third heaven, based on our identity in Christ. If Christ is seated on the throne and we are in Christ, by faith we could access to the Throne of Grace in times of need.
Upon declaring or ‘hagah’ Revelation Chapter 4 as led by Holy Spirit, at least 3 people in congregation was translated into heavenly! Here are their testimonies:
Heavenly Encounter by Ruth Kok
I saw the throne room and so many people dressed in white kneeling down and praising the Lord. They all seemed to be facing down unable to lift up their heads. Then I saw the Lord on his Throne(chair), so glorious because I could not see his face. His face shone so bright that I could hardly lift up my head to see Him. The multitudes were just praising Him continuously. It sounded like an orchestra in high praise.
Then in another scene, I saw myself like a little child entering this room where I saw the Lord seated (not able to see his face again)and behind Him, I saw a row of people and I had the understanding that they were his apostles. I saw a very tall man in the crowd. It seemed like my spirit knew who this man was and I called him Father Abraham. He reached out his hand to me and said to me that I was the recipient of his Abrahamic covenant.
I thanked The lord for giving me this opportunity to have a heavenly encounter when I just stepped out in faith to receive from the Lord. Thank you Lord. God Bless! …Ruth Kok
Heavenly Encounter by Sister Cecillia
During last Saturday’s ministry of Signs & Wonders by Bro Thomas, he was led by the Holy Spirit to pray for those who desired to go to heaven. It had been my desire to go to heaven! When he ‘hagah’ or read out loud Revelation Chapter 4 to us, I saw myself standing in front of a door on the clouds & I was knocking at a door. Someone opened the door, I could not really see his face but I sensed that he was an angel. As I was walking, I just saw everything was white & suddenly I saw myself flying above the clouds. I was wearing a long white robe & I was wondering how I could. When I looked back I saw I was with wings! Then suddenly, I could see the whole congregation of CKRM happily dancing & worshipping God. At the same time I saw a long queue outside waiting to go in. Praise God!
Bro Thomas was also led to give spiritual rose to those who desired to have it. When he gave me the rose, I was filled with joy! I could smell the fragrance & I could see many petals of red roses and I was just tossing them in front of my face. After that I could see myself like a little child and I was holding His hand. I could not see His face and He was tall and I believed that He is our Lord Jesus! I was just running around with Him in circles and was playing in His garden! Praise God for these wonderful experiences that by the grace of our Heavenly Father that I was able to experience all this. AMEN!…Sister Cecillia
Heavenly Encounter by Sister Nellie Quek
To say that my experiences in CKRM have been amazing is an understatement. God has been simply awesome! Since attending CKRM (from late August, 2009), I have been extremely blessed and my once roller coaster spiritual life continues to grow richly in the Lord. All glory be to God!
Recently, on the 27 March 2010, I had a wonderful experience in the supernatural. After Bro. Thomas Ong shared the Word of God, he invited us to the altar (the Glory Zone). He commenced to read a portion of the scripture alluding to the Heavenly Throne. The anointing was so strong that I could not stand straight. The minute I heard Bro. Thomas mention the word “door”, I fell to the floor.
I saw a golden door. A wizened old man in white welcomed me and said that the Lord was waiting. I walked in. I saw a big area surrounded by people uniformly dressed in white. They were all standing and facing the middle portion. Theere appeared to be something high up; like a throne but I could not see it clearly. The entire place was so vast. I could not see any walls. There was no floor – only what appeared to be white clouds.
The people in white then turned their heads to the side. I looked to the right and I saw Bro Thomas walking into the area, followed by a group of people. It was like walking into an arena. I could not see their faces. They appeared so small in comparison to the others. It was as if all the people there were expecting Bro Thomas and the group.
Next I saw Bro Thomas coming out from the golden door. I could see his face clearly. He looked so happy. He was smiling broadly as he walked down which looked like a flight of stairs amidst the clouds. I remembered saying that I did not want to leave. I wanted to spend more time in the presence of the Lord. The next moment I found myself as a little girl in the garden, sitting at His feet and resting my head against His knee. I could not see His face but I knew it was the Lord. When I woke up, I just felt dazed but very much at peace.
May you be blessed by this testimony…Nellie Quek
The Rose of Sharon
The Glory is the manifested presence of God and the Glory is the love of God. It’s the love of God that translates & transports his children to the heavenly place. In CKRM Supernatural and Anointing Ministry, the spiritual rose from the Garden in Paradise was dropping from heaven during ministry time. Many experienced the love of God when the spiritual roses were given to them.
Be blessed in the Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus!
是什么原因使到大卫王能经常进入神的至圣所呢？秘密就是‘那一件事’！他生命中渴慕的‘那一件事’就是 – 讨神喜悦。
有一件事，我曾求耶和华，我仍要 [坚持] 寻求：就是一生一世住在耶和华的殿中 [祂的同在]，瞻仰他的荣美 [何等吸引人的温柔美善]，在他的殿里求问。（诗篇27:4）

Ruth Kok 姐妹的天堂之旅
在上个星期六Thomas 弟兄所带领的超自然与恩膏事工里，他被圣灵带领为那些渴慕到天堂的弟兄姐妹祷告。这是我向来都渴慕的！当他大声宣告启示录第四章时，我看到自己站在云端上敲着一扇门。有人把门打开，虽然我无法看清楚那人的脸，但我感觉到他应该是天使。当我进入那扇门后，我看到所有的东西都是白色的。随后我看到自己长了翅膀并穿着白袍在云上飞翔。忽然我看到整个CKRM 的会众喜乐的跳舞和敬拜神。与此同时我也看到门外排着长龙等着进入天堂。赞美神！
Nellie Quek 姐妹的天堂奇遇
我在最近的三月二十七日有一个非常奇妙的超自然经历。Thomas 弟兄分享了神的话语后邀请我们到台前（神荣耀的区域）来。他开始宣读一部份经节提及神的宝座时，神那厚而强的恩膏真使我无法站直。当我听到Thomas 弟兄说：“门”的那一刻，我整个人便俯伏在地。
那些身穿白袍的人接着都望向一边。当我顺着他们望去的方向看时，我看到Thomas 弟兄朝着中央的方向走去，在他后面还跟着一群人。就好像走入中央舞台一样。我看不清楚他们的脸因为太小了。似乎那里的人都在等候Thomas 弟兄和这群人的到来。
接着下来我看到Thomas 弟兄从金门那里出来，这次我可以很清楚地看到他脸上的表情。他笑容满面的走下像似云霄中的飞机梯级. 我记得我说不要离开那里因我要花多一点时间与神同在。之后我便像小女孩在花园里坐在主的脚前把头歇在主的膝盖上享受在主的同在里。
