The writer of this book experienced hundreds of encounters with the great cloud of witnesses before he first met Bob Jones in a vision. Bob visited him three times over a couple of years, and then one day, he told Matthew to sit down and type and record their conversations. He was going to call the encounters "Conversations with Bob" and produce a book, knowing that the discussions would benefit others. Suddenly, Bob changed gears and started to take him to heaven. Before Matthew knew it, he was speaking to 11 saints in heaven along with Jesus, and the name of the book was soon "My Visits to the Galactic Council of Heaven." The saints were happy to meet Matthew and only too aware that the conversations were being recorded to form a book, so they spoke to both Matthew and the intended readers, which will hopefully include you. Heaven and the saints have change on their mind. Heaven wants to talk about what it is like to be a disciple and how to live a productive and successful Christian life on earth. This series of books, of which this is the first, will be a course in heavenly discipleship through the personalities and the wisdom of heaven's saints, who have been watching all of us on earth. Come and see the personalities of heaven, come and listen to their instruction and their counsel, and if you are really eager and courageous, come and visit the council for yourself and ask your own questions. Let this book take you to heaven and be a stepping stone in your own personal encounters with the saints and Jesus in heaven.
