1 Nephi 15:1 — LeGrand Baker — “carried away in the spirit”

1 Nephi 15:1  

1. And it came to pass that after I, Nephi, had been carried away in the spirit, and seen all these things, I returned to the tent of my father.

It may be true that there is almost nothing more difficult for earth-bound people to comprehend than the power of God to communicate by traveling through time and space, but there are many examples of people who have done it. The following are examples of people who were, like Nephi, “carried away,” either to a high mountain or to the throne of God. That throne is in the Holy of Holies of the temple in Kolob. In short, they go a very great distance, but rarely even mention the trip.{1}



{1} Examples are Isaiah 6:1;Ezekiel 1:3-4 and 26, 40:2-3; 2 Corinthians 12:2-6; Revelation 1:9-13, 21:9-10;1 Nephi 1:6-8, 11:1; Moses 1:1-2.
