The matter cannot be pursued at length here, nor are the details clear. It could be that in some cases the prophet’s vision, upon the heavens being opened, is basically a rerun of the premortal call; in others, a reminder or a current call. A striking example of the heavenly council experience is that recorded in Isaiah 6. Here Isaiah sees God sitting upon his throne, overhears the conversation of a heavenly council, and learns the message they desire to be taken to the inhabitants of the earth. The Lord asks, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Isaiah, realizing why he has been included in the heavenly council, responds: “Here am I; send me” (verse 8). A list of similar illustrations (sometimes where only the mortal participant and the Lord were present) would include Enoch (Moses 7:3-4); Abraham (Abraham 3:22-28); Micaiah (1 Kings 22:19-20); Moses (Moses 1:1-11); Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1:1, 26; Ezekiel 2:4; Ezekiel 10:1); Joshua (Zechariah 3); Paul (2 Corinthians 12:2); and John (Revelation 4:1-2). Clearly, Christ received his commission in the Grand Council in heaven (Moses 4:1-3; Abraham 3:22-28). “I came down from heaven,” he said, “not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38). “The Son can do nothing of himself,” he declared, “but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, there also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19).
