“I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.”
King James Version (KJV)

I can't think of any verses that specifically conform to what you want, but you could take a look at the following:

Hello, I have question regarding passage" I knew you before you were conceived you were sinner" or"LORD knew us before creating this world".
Could you please direct me to that passage in the Bible

Adeleye, we generally understand that Paul was referring to himself when he described this vision & revelation given to him. The reason that he speaks this way was probably because of the sights & sounds that were open to him & what he shared in his letter might cause his readers to think of him as more superior to others (vv 5,6). So to counteract that sense of superiority, he's diverting their attention off himself & speaking in the 'third' person. In fact, just so that he wouldn't sense any personal superiority & fall into sin, the Lord had given him a 'thorn in the flesh' to keep him humble (v7).
The "third Heaven" being referred to is Heaven, the place of God's abode. The first heaven being the sky & the second being the universe of planets & stars. So Paul is saying that the Lord gave him the privilege of looking into God's Abode with all the angelic host & what he heard & saw was unutterable to mankind because of its glory & splendour.

What does he mean when he says, such an one caught up to the third heaven. Could this mean that there was or is 3 different earth ages? Could there have been a earth age before the one that we are in now? I know that there is still one more to come.

no Paul was not talking about his Self he was talking about the angle that he saw at the time he was in the spirit such a one caught up to the third heaven.
