Parts of the following dream have been posted previously in this blog. But the dream, in its entirety, was not. Yesterday it was brought up for discussion and I felt moved to publish it again, but this time, in its entirety. So much could be said but for the sake of brevity, only salient points will be addressed.
Looking Out Of A Window: 1996
In this dream, I am standing inside a house which intersects at a corner of a street called 7th Street and another one called Balsam. It has a large window through which I am looking. It is dark outside and it is getting increasingly darker. A snow plow could be seen traveling from a western direction to the east on 7th street and plowing what appeared to be snow. At one point I heard a voice say: “Close the Curtains.” I do so. A little time later, light is seen filtering through the white curtains. As though it was my cue to do so, I return to the window and open the curtains. But this time there was no more darkness. Instead I saw the most spectacular scene. My entire field of vision was bright blue – the deepest neon blue as far as the eye can see. A herculean size and brilliant cross of bright white light intersected the sky from all directions. It intersected in the middle and reached infinitely from left to right (east and west) and infinitely again from top to bottom (north and south). If you can visualize it, the cross squared what appeared to be the sky into four perfect blue squares.
Connecting the Interpretive Dots
Looking through the window is symbolic of seeing through the lens of the Spirit and in this case, it is also seeing real events taking place in the outside world. The snow plow might or might not be symbolic. It could point to a season. And it could represent evangelistic ministries working through the time of the last and final harvest (7 is a number biblically associated with completion.) My favorite part: the brilliant white cross – it symbolizes redemption and its light symbolizes truth and resurrection power. It represents a work that will affect everyone at the four corners of the world. It is primarily indicative of the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Light of the world and Who has overcome the works of darkness through His shed blood on the Cross. Indeed, He came as a Lamb to destroy the works of the devil on the Cross and He will return like a Lion to expel satanic darkness from this fallen world. Isaiah prophesied that darkness will cover the earth. (Is. 60:2). So much so that seeing the gross evil that will manifest in coming days in the world will not be fit for the saints of GOD. Remember Lot’s wife!
Arise and shine, for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people; but the LORD shall arise upon you, and His Glory shall be seen upon you. (Is. 60:1-2)
Is this Cross of Light “the sign of the Son of Man” prophesied by the Lord to appear in the sky at the time of the great ‘Harpazo’ ? A term which has been coined in more modern times as ‘The Rapture’ ? (Lk. 21:28; 2 Thess. 4:16-18). Or is this related to the timing of Jesus’ Second Coming after seven years of tribulation when He establishes His millennial reign? I cannot ascertain. But one thing is certain! The Lord is returning and He is coming to establish and implement His Kingdom on earth!
Clues in Matthew 24
Immediately **after** the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. **Then ** the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven (Is this the Cross that was shown? It’s very possible!) and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds (4 corners of the world) from one end of heaven to the other (Angels of His Light traveling from east to west and north and south forming this great Brilliant Cross? ) (Mat. 24:29-31)
What To Do Now
My goodness! If you are not a Believer, I invite you to give your heart to the Lord, to repent of all sins and live a holy and righteous life without which no one will see GOD! If you are a Backslider, it is never too late to ask the Lord for mercy and forgiveness. Scriptures teach that GOD sometimes seals His instructions in dreams. (Job 33:15-17). And this dream is not just happenstance; the Lord is confirming His Holy Spirit inspired Word.(1 Cor. 12:7-8) We are living in precious days of grace. And the gospel of salvation and deliverance must be preached to prepare the people before the Lord Jesus Christ returns. Until such a time, it behooves us to occupy and fulfill this mission in whatever ways we are called and guided to do. Praise GOD and thank you Lord.
More Scriptural Clues
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (Lk. 19:13)
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat (spiritual food/provision/freely we have received, freely we are called to give) in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. (Mat. 24:42-51)
Because this dream was shown in such amazing living colors and in an indelible fashion, I believe this great cosmic and supernatural event is to be shared as a testimony. (It is noteworthy that something took place this year which points to an occurrence in the dream that would place the timing just before I am told to close the curtains. )
Keep the Faith.
