A Very Real Dream

This is from a fellow Brother in Christ, Eric Nelson. I am reposting with his permission.

As I write this note, I’m still in shock from the dream that I just had in which I saw a picture of the rapture of the church and experienced what God’s wrath will be like for those left behind during the event. The following dream occurred on Aug 18, 2011 at 2am. The dream is as follows:

I was at work (Day shift at the Police department) and was standing in the briefing room where my fellow Police Officers and I gather each morning prior to going out in our vehicles on patrol. We were watching the news on television as we normally do at the start of each shift. Some officers were sitting in chairs and some were standing. We watched news clips of riots occurring all over the world. The news reports showed riots occurring in major cities, small towns, at sporting events…etc. I saw people acting like crazed animals. They were breaking into buildings and causing general mayhem everywhere. I thought to myself “We’re lucky that this hasn’t occurred in our town yet”. Then the news camera zoomed in on a group of people standing in a parking lot near some buildings. The people seemed to be shouting something towards those individuals engaging in the riots but they themselves did not take part in the riots. All of the sudden that specific group of people disappeared. I immediately thought to myself “The rapture has just occurred”. One of the officers standing behind me said “DID YOU SEE THAT?…THOSE PEOPLE JUST DISSAPEARED”. The strange thing was that I could sense that the officer was going to say that before the words actually came out of his mouth. Before I could even cry out “Jesus don’t leave me behind”! I felt a sense of fear unlike anything that I can put into words. (The words that I will use to try to explain the fear that I felt will do no real justice to my experience) I felt a fear of God’s wrath being poured out on the world at that moment. A feeling of “We’ve finally pushed God too far”, “We’ve finally gone beyond what he is willing to put up with”. It was kind of like the feeling that you would get as a child when you did something really bad and just knew deep down inside that your father was going to unleash his anger “Full Fury” on you when he saw you ONLY A THOUSAND TIMES WORSE!!! That overwhelming sense of approaching dread. It was like staring into the face of a ferocious Lion that was getting ready to pounce on you. It was a sense of complete hopelessness and abandonment. The fear was unlike any fear that I ever felt before in my entire life. Not like the fear that you would feel from being assaulted, murdered, raped, or even dying. No, it was a different kind of fear. I FELT LIKE THE VERY BEING THAT MADE ME….MY CREATOR… HAS LEFT ME ALONE TO FEND FOR MYSELF!!! IT WAS HORROR….PURE HORROR!!

All of these feelings that I felt and the words that I spoke and heard occurred in a nanosecond. Before I could even say…”Jesus don’t leave me behind”…. Before the words even came out of my mouth…I started floating up towards the ceiling. Two feelings came over me as the fear subsided and I began to float upwards towards the ceiling of the room…(1) that I wasn’t being left behind and (2) that God simply wanted me to experience what it will be like for those who ARE left behind at the rapture of believing Christians who are LOOKING FOR and LONGING FOR the return of Christ. I awoke just before I reached the ceiling crying out in my sleep. My moaning is what awoke me from my dream. I got up and was stunned by what happened.

Now for those of you who say “Ok Eric, so what! You had a real intense dream…big deal” I’d like to reveal what the Bible says in regards to dreams and visions during the last days on earth prior to the return of Christ.

‘In the last days, God says, I will pour my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will speak what God has revealed. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17.

If you’re reading this note and you have not made Jesus Christ Lord of your life yet then I’m pleading with you to do so now. Turn away from any sin in your life and ask Jesus to forgive you for any and all your sins and for him be to Lord of your life. You eternal destination is at stake. Whatever you choose to do from this point forward is up to you but you can’t say that you weren’t warned. Be Ready…Jesus is coming soon!

And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man (Jesus) is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of the trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world-from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven. Matthew 24:30,31.
