"And Behold the Heavens were opened"

When the Savior asked the twelve apostles in the Americas what their greatest desire was, there were three of them who did not dare speak of what they desired, and the Savior, knowing their thoughts said unto them. "Behold, I know your thoughts, and ye have desired the thing which John, my beloved, who was with me in my ministry, before that I was lifted up by the Jews, desired of me.

Therefore, more blessed are ye, for ye shall never taste of death; but ye shall live to behold all the doings of the Father unto the children of men, even until all things shall be fulfilled according to the will of the Father, when I shall come in my glory with the powers of heaven.

And ye shall never endure the pains of death; but when I shall come in my glory ye shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye from mortality to immortality; and then shall ye be blessed in the kingdom of my Father..."

"And behold, the heavens were opened, and they were caught up into heaven, and saw and heard unspeakable things..."

"But it came to pass that they did again minister upon the face of the earth" (3 Nephi 28 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/3-ne/28 )

I urge you to read in 3 Nephi 28. These three are still on the earth, ministering to those here and assisting in the Gathering of Israel as translated beings who are solely focused on the work of the Lord, the immortality and eternal life of man. 

One day, if we live worthy in this life, we may inherit all that these three will inherit, that is all our Father in Heaven has.  May we be valiant as these.  

This is from the Book of Mormon. Prophets in Book of Mormon times were shown what to include in the Book of Mormon for our day, because God showed them what our day would be like.
