The Rapture?

 

MY FIRST DREAM FROM GOD WAS WHEN I WAS ABOUT NINE YEARS OLD, IN THE LATE SEVENTIES DURING THE JESUS MOVEMENT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.  ONE NIGHT MY NEWLY SAVED PARENTS WERE STAYING UP LATE TALKING ABOUT THE RAPTURE.

OVERHEARING THIS, I WAS TERRIFIED OF THE NOTION OF PEOPLE JUST DISAPPEARING  FROM EARTH AND FLYING UP INTO THE SKY!   BEFORE I WENT TO BED THAT NIGHT, I PRAYED TO GOD, WHO I HADN’T OFFICIALLY MET YET BY THE WAY, TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT IN THE WORLD THE RAPTURE WAS.

THAT NIGHT GOD GAVE ME A DREAM OF WHAT THE “RAPTURE” (THE FIRST COMING OF CHRIST) WOULD LOOK LIKE.  HE APPEARED TO ME SITTING UP IN THE STARS, LIKE IN OUTER SPACE.  I IMAGINE IT WAS HIM SITTING ON HIS THRONE, BUT I DIDN’T SEE A THRONE, JUST JESUS SITTING THERE.

THE NEXT THINK I KNEW I WAS SITTING ON HIS LAP.  IT WAS LIKE  I WAS PUT THERE.  AS I SAT THERE WITH HIM, I DIDN’T FEEL A BIT FRIGHTENED, JUST TOTAL PEACE.

IN MY LOGICAL MIND I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE BEEN TERRIFIED THOUGH, BECAUSE I WAS SCARED OF HEIGHTS, BUT I WAS NOT AFRAID AT ALL.

HIS LAP WAS AS HARD AS A ROCK, LIKE A HUGE BOLDER.  EACH OF HIS THIGHS WAS REALLY WIDE, ABOUT A FOOT IN WIDTH.  AT THAT TIME OF COURSE I DIDN’T KNOW THAT JESUS WAS REFERRED TO AS “THE ROCK” IN SCRIPTURE!

EXODUS 33:22 “So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by.

2 SAM 22:47 “The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, The Rock of my salvation!

AS WE SAT THERE TOGETHER, HE POINTED OUT TO THE EARTH BELOW US AND HE SHOWED ME THE SPIRITS OF CHRISTIANS. THEY ACTUALLY LOOKED LIKE LIGHTS GOING UP FROM THE EARTH TO WHAT LOOKED LIKE WHITE SHEETS SUCKING THEM UP BY THE CORNERS.  (I KNOW .. IT SOUNDS WEIRD).  THEN AT THE SAME TIME THE LIGHTS WERE GOING UP WITH THE UPWARD MOTION OF THE SHEETS, THERE WERE ALSO LIGHTS GOING DOWN TO EARTH WHEN THE SHEETS CAME BACK DOWN.  (I BELIEVE THESE WERE THE SAINTS GOING BACK TO BE RAISED FROM THE DEAD.

1 THES 4:16-17  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

NEXT IN THE DREAM, JESUS POINTED OVER TO THE RIGHT OF WHERE WE WERE SITTING, AND THERE WAS A CITY THERE WITH A PARADE OF PEOPLE DANCING IN THE STREETS.  IT WAS HEAVEN, AND THERE ARE SO MANY SCRIPTURES I HAVE READ OVER THE YEARS THAT GOD USED TO SHOW ME THAT THIS DREAM WAS A PROPHETIC DREAM FROM HIM!

SCRIPTURES GOD SHOWED ME ABOUT THIS VISION:

Rev 4:12, Matt 24:30-31, Rev 4:1-2,Rev 11:11-12, Matt 22:8-10

THIS DREAM IS LITERAL.  THE LORD BASICALLY SHOWED ME WHAT THE RAPTURE WOULD LOOK LIKE.

I WAS A LITTLE GIRL WHEN GOD GAVE ME THIS DREAM, SO I BELIEVE THAT IF GOD GAVE ME A SYMBOLIC PARABLE TYPE DREAM, I MAY HAVE TOTALLY MISSED THE WHOLE THING.

GOD IS SO GOOD!
