I dreamed I saw myself walking on a sidewalk in a big city at night.
As I walked, I noticed something I didn’t see before. A huge side of a mountain appeared right next to the sidewalk. And I mean it butted up right where the cement ended.
I stopped and looked at it thinking, “What is this? I didn’t notice this before. How strange that all of a sudden a mountain side is here.”
I stood there looking at it. It went straight up so high, I could not see the top. I looked back around to see if anyone else was noticing this, but no one was noticing it. I only saw people walking and talking to each other. Just then I looked back at the mountain because of the oddity of it.
Then I heard a voice say to me. “Climb up to the top of this mountain.”
I thought, “How can I climb to the top of this mountain when it goes straight up and I can’t even see the top.” It was practically perfectly vertical. It was impossible.
So I answered, “I can’t because I do not have the strength, there is no way.”
Even before the last words left my mouth, I was lifted up and ran up to the top like a feather floating upwards. I got to the top and stepped onto what was a large flat plateau that looked out over the expanse of the city and the city lights. Down below in the distance, I saw what looked like a big carnival in the center of the city.
I turned back from looking at that sight. When I turned around I noticed, in intermittent fashion, very large boulders. It was strange looking so I walked over to get a better look to see what they were and why they were there.
As I approached one, I noticed on one side it was a normal boulder about shoulder high. On the other side, it was carved out and within was a person sitting in it with their knees up and their arms around their legs.
I went from one right after the other and each one had a person sitting in the boulder quiet and waiting. Just then, I realized it was time for me to do the same. A strong overwhelming knowing that I had to hide myself away in my own boulder was more than a thought. I knew I had to hurry and find one because something was about to happen that necessitated hiding.
As soon as I turned around to see if I could find a boulder, one immediately appeared. I hurried and got inside of it. It was almost right away that I heard something and peeked out to see what it was.
I saw a man dressed in a white robe that went down to his ankles. He went to each of the boulders and stuck his hand out and took each person from those rocks. Then he came for me. He walked up hurriedly and stuck his hand out saying, “Hurry up, come with me, there’s not a lot of time left.”
So I put my hand in his and he lifted me up. I noticed the others he had gathered were only a few. Not many, maybe thirty or so. We walked behind him as he walked in front of us quickly leading the way.
We arrived at the mouth of a big cave. He went right in and we followed him with curiosity and like little children. There was a dim light initially at the entrance. We stopped at the entrance on a type of platform. From there we could look down and see the base of the lower part of the cave where there was a very large room that was more brightly lit than the rest of the cave.
At one end of the room, I saw a crowd of people. I knew they were all Christians. I could feel the tension and excitement in the air. They kept their eyes on the opposite part of the room where I noticed an entrance, a doorway, without a door. Their eyes were fixed on that door as if they were waiting for someone to come through at any moment.
Just then, a man arrived and walked into their midst. I knew he was a pastor or some kind of leader and that the people loved him, but I did not recognize him. As soon as he stood before them he began to say, “If there are any of you who have not confessed your sins the time to do it is now. If there is anyone here that has not forgiven, the time is now. And if there is anyone of you who has taken even a Bible from their mother’s house, you must confess it.”
Just then a woman ran forward and fell at his feet and confessed that she had taken her mother’s bible, something she should not have done. He said, “Anything you have done in secret, now is the time to confess it!”
Just then a powerful wave of the Holy Spirit came over all the people. They all fell down weeping and praying, crying out to God, they were in a sense tearing their garments.
As this was happening, and I was watching from the platform, the man uttered one more thing. He said, “You must do this! Jesus Christ is near to coming! You must be ready for Him now. It’s time to be clean. The Bridegroom is coming!”
Our little group then began to make our way down to the bottom so we could join them in that big room. I can say immediately from the start to the finish of this dream, without that man saying anything, I already knew with such a powerful witness that Jesus was so near to come. The whole room was filled with a power that was beyond my ability to describe. There was a power present there to deliver us from sin, prepare us, and make us ready for heaven. It was much like the feeling of the minutes leading up to going on the best vacation ever, but so much beyond better than that!
I was walking on the sidewalk at night, which represents the hour is now very late. The day of grace is about to end.
I was walking in the city, which represented our normal everyday life as usual. The mountain immediately appeared out of nowhere, which represented what the Holy Spirit does to get our attention.
When I looked to see if anyone was seeing this mountain right here in the city appearing in such an odd way, I saw no one was even looking, which means they could not see it, nor were they interested in seeing it. They went along their way.
When the voice told me, not asked me, but told me to climb to the top of that mountain, the sheer vertical height of it confirmed what I thought, it was impossible to get myself up there by my own human strength. While I was complaining about my lack of ability, I was lifted up like a feather, which means when the time comes for us to go up it will only be by supernatural ability.
When I looked down from the top of the mountain and saw a city at night with a big carnival in the center, the city at night represented the darkness of our nation’s spiritual condition. The people did not recognize the danger they were in. The carnival at the center of the city represented how they were focused on entertainment because they did not comprehend the darkness they were in. It was not a natural darkness, but a spiritual darkness that was captivating, tantalizing, and seducing them like a carnival would captivate a child.
The urgency of the time quickly closing in was illustrated by my turning back to see big boulders or rocks placed in intermittent places with carved out centers with one person at a time in them. This revealed what is coming at the end of this age. Right before the Lord comes for us, true Christians will be hunted down finding no place of safety. They were spread out intermittently because they did not know each other, but were all led there individually just like I was. I did not know them and they did not know me.
They were quietly resting in their safe places, tucked away in the cleft of the rock. They were just sitting in the rock without any visible means of supply because they were not there for long. They were just peacefully, confidently waiting.
When I felt the sense of urgency to find my own rock, I immediately found one already there right by me because God had already worked it out for me in advance.
When I heard a noise and looked and saw a man in a white robe holding a lantern going from rock to rock and gathering them one by one, I knew right away he was sent from heaven. When he came to me and told me to hurry up, I went with him right away because I knew he was sent to get us.
When we got to the cave and we went in and saw a people group at the base of the cave below, I knew they were all gathered together like we were. The fact that they were waiting for that man meant they not only knew him, but they had a fervent need for him and deeply loved him.
He wasted no time asking them to come forward to get clean from their sins, which caused an exponential increase in the moving of the Holy Spirit. His message was all about repentance and getting everything right with God, which was why he told them to confess their sins, even if they so much as took a bible from their mother’s house.
I immediately knew what he meant was our decisions to do things that might not at all seem like a sin, but in a warped religious way we are sinning without even realizing it. There is going to be a call from the Holy Spirit to get ourselves clean before the Lord returns. The bride must make herself ready, but not with outward adornment. God is looking for inner beauty as it says in Psalm 45:13, “The king’s daughter is all glorious within, her clothing is of wrought gold.”
He is coming for a spotless bride, which is us. There is a preparation process we must soon go through before He comes, which was the purpose for our being gathered together at the end. We must be ready to move with Him, leaving the hows and whys up to Him. Our part is to just obey.
