I live in Houston, but on August 21, I was on military leave on a two-week vacation with my family. I had planned this vacation around the eclipse about 3 years ago.
That night, I looked at the weather (since I am a 30 year meteorologist) and saw what would later become hurricane Harvey. I knew we would probably have to cut our vacation short.
Then we drove to our next destination (Lexington, KY) so we could go to the Ark Encounter. I didn’t want to turn around right then and go home since I knew I had time. Then we pressed on towards Cedar Point Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie. At this point, I knew I would need to return and that my leave was going to be cancelled. My wife didn’t understand why we were driving 6 hours north to N Ohio just to have to drive 6 hours back down. I didn’t either, but I felt the urge to go north…and I also wanted my kids to have one last good day before we headed back into what I knew by then (the 23rd of August…Wednesday) was going to be a catastrophe.
My wife and older son drove so I could work with my hotspot and laptop. We drove through Litchfield, Ohio on our way to Sheffield (where our hotel was). As we neared the town of Litchfield, I looked up to help with directions. She didn’t understand the “round-about” picture on the GPS and asked for help.
Then it hit me… what I was seeing on the GPS was the town square I saw in my dream on May 14 2016. Just like my dream, the roads went N, S, E and W from the center where a gazebo was located. That’s where I was standing in the dream. I saw the same buildings with people walking by as they left the church, which is right next to the town square (the SW corner in the picture).
So, the town square I saw in my dream and the church are located in Litchfield, Ohio. The church was the Litchfield Church of Christ Congregational. That’s the church I came out of in my dream.
“Pull over! Pull over!!!” I yelled.
She had no idea what was going on. The kids were confused. I could not believe what I was seeing. This dream was not one of my most prominent dreams. It just wasn’t one of those that stuck out, but it had an immediate release and a pretty cool answer from the Lord in terms of confirmation (Isaiah 30). I had not even thought about it since last year, but as soon as I looked up to help her with the directions, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
We made the loop back and I got out at the parking lot of the church and walked around. The Holy Spirit was very clear: “THIS IS IT.”
I, of course was left with the question, “What is the meaning of driving through this right now? Why did we drive through this town…at this time?” I knew it was significant since the Lord never does anything by random chance.
So, I prayed and felt as if I received an immediate answer, “Because the fulfillment of the warnings I have been giving you is close. It’s at the door.”
After receiving the dream last year, I sought God for the meaning and heard this, “Church, return to me the Living God. Learn to cry out to Me. The days are coming…yes…days of great judgment. Seek Me now when I can be found.” (see the complete post)
I spoke to two trusted brothers about this incident (they are both cc’d and can verify I spoke with them, one on the night it happened (the 23rd)…and one the next day. These are both Godly men, whose council I trust. Both immediately, without hesitation said the same thing: “It’s close…or it’s here.” Their words were almost identical.
