I was awakened from a very powerful dream. This dream was happening in slow motion, so I was able to soak up what was happening.
In the dream, I was outside and I was singing praise to the Lord. All of a sudden, I noticed people coming from everywhere and their faces began to look up toward the sky in awe. I was sort of underneath a very tall building, so I took a step away and looked up to the sky. I saw colorful rays of light shining down in all directions. Then….I saw Him! It was Jesus with His arms outstretched. He had on a majestic white robe with a sash of red flowing from His shoulder to His feet.
My mind was racing and words were coming out of my spirit simultaneously. I heard my thoughts….”It’s real, it’s happening, this is really happening…” Out of my spirit came these words….”Oh my Lord, my Lord, I love You, I love You, take me, take me Lord, I love You.”
Then people began to rise toward the sky. I saw one of my daughters in front of me, and as she was rising, she looked to the person next to her, and I could hear her say “I’m so happy, I’m so happy.” We were in the motion of rising, when I was awakened from the dream. I was lying on my back and I could feel the sensation of a gravity pull. It felt like there were numerous large magnets underneath me and holding me down. I could not move at first because of the strength of the gravity pull sensation. Once I could move, I got up, wide awake, very alert, and then the tears began to flow because of what I had just experienced.
It is difficult to put into words an experience like that. Generation after generation has heard that Jesus is coming soon. They have heard it so much that they have become complacent to the thought. We know it in our minds and spirit because the bible tells us so, but how many of us stop for a moment in our daily lives and ask “Could this be the day?” For believers, the thought is always in the back of our minds. I don’t know why the Lord allowed me to experience this powerful dream. But, one thing I know… He IS coming sooner than we think! In the dream, it was just another normal day with people going about their lives….then…pow! The rapture began to happen. I was in awe….just complete awe!
The next day, the Lord led me to the scripture in John 3:2 ~ “Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is.”
I experienced this scripture. I saw Him just as He is! All I could do was profess my great love for Him. And I knew that I did not want to be left behind. What am I going to do about it? Who am I going to take with me? Who can I tell about Jesus that He is coming soon? Will it be someone walking down the street, someone in the grocery store, someone at the beauty salon, someone at the movie theater, someone at the Dr.’s office, my neighbor? Who will it be? Oh to burn with the fire of God in our bellies that would implore us to go out of our comfort zones and share the Gospel! Lord Jesus, help us! We have been empowered to share the Gospel. Everything you need to do is right inside of you. One step forward can save someone’s life from destruction….just one step. You will not be alone, the Holy Spirit will be right there with you all the way, giving you the right words to say. It feels so good to save a life.
