It's 3:57 am. I sit here with tears streaming down my cheeks as I write this blog. It's been a while since I've written as life has been so busy and it got me to thinking it's been a while since I've read my bible as well. Maybe it's a fluke but the two always seem to go hand in hand. I know I have been under some stress of late with trying to have a baby, but I think tonight's dream was so much more.
I was woke tonight (from a dead sleep) by a dream. A dream that literally sent me to my knees. I dreamed that we were at an "event", still not sure what kind of event but there were all sorts of "old acquaintances" in my dream. I had walked outside the big doors to look at the sky because it appeared a storm was rolling in... I don't know where Ryan had gone to but he had walked another way... in a flash, a lightening bolt hit the ground, like none I had ever seen before and a roar of thunder cycled the sky with the loudest roar I had ever heard before... at that moment I turned to look in at the crowd and seen a person disappear....and then I seen more gone...there were half the audiance there that was present before... I knew immediately, Jesus had returned and I was left behind! What a horrible feeling! I turned to look for my sister and husband and to my dismay I found my sister.... I thought my husband had made it because I couldn't find him but I was wrong, he then appeared. I cried and everyone was shouting "oh my God, what is going on?" I knew, I began to weep because we had been left behind.
I know to some this is just a bad dream and you may not observe the same belief I do, but I tell you it has sent chills down my spine, and caused me to hit my knees. I do not want the Lord to return and I be left behind. In the bible it says, (1 Corinthians 15:52; In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raise incorruptible and we shall be changed.) In my dream it was just as it is written in the Bible, (Matthew 24:40-41) Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be taken and the other left (NIV).
I do not know where you are in your faith or your walk with Christ and regardless of your religion take heed to this message. If I'm wrong what do you have to lose, but if I'm right, you have everything to lose.
John 14:1-3 Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going thee to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (NIV).
Once upon a time I would have worried about sending such a message to my friends and across a world-wide internet for millions to read, fearful of what others would think of me... instead, I am worried about not sending it. What if my one little blog gets through to just one or two loved ones, friends, or even strangers, then it is worth the ridicul I would receive, just to know someone else doesn't get left behind.
The time is nearing the end, in my opinion. I am not a prophet nor am I proclaiming that my dream was anything more than that. I am also not trying to dispell a date of the return of Christ for no man knows, not even Jesus. (Matthew 24:36, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.") All I am saying is get your house in order, make your hearts right with Jesus and don't be like I was in my dream.... left behind!
