At some point in either 2015 or 2016, I had a dream that I was left behind after The Rapture. Needless to say, it was very disturbing. After seeing all of my fellow believers disappear, I remember myself and scores of other people being gathered into some type of auditorium. It is something I am going to refer to as an “anti church.” Many people in this place were being fitted with the mark of the beast. The authorities in charge, though heavily armed, were trying to appear benevolent as possible and also were making the acceptance of the mark appear to be the best decision ever in both description and display. Prizes, such as widescreen televisions and possibly even sports cars, were being given out to those who had decided to take the mark. I on the other hand, knew that I should never receive that mark no matter what or suffer eternal damnation. Still, many others took the mark. There was great applause throughout the gathering place every time someone did. I guess out of fear of my own personal safety, I chose not to speak out against this and kept very quiet though every fiber of my being knew it was gravely wrong. Throughout the dream, I never take the mark, but instead fervently pray for Jesus Christ’s Second Coming, even though it would be up to seven years away. At some point, I wake up with a very disturbed and fearful state of mind.
I would love to believe that a Pre Tribulation Rapture will happen and that all believers in Christ on the Earth will indeed be taken up, but sometimes I think it is too good to be true.
However, I know that even as a Christian, I am a carnal and wretched being, still full of sin.
This makes me wonder if I will still be taken up, should the Rapture happen in my lifetime, which all I have to do is look at or listen to the news media and quickly realize that things are definitely falling into place. I’m just waiting for the moment when there is an agreement to rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and peace between Jews and Muslims is finally achieved. By the way, this event will be what causes the Rapture, because of the Tribulation that follows. Every television channel in existence will break regular programming to cover this story, by the way. The person who facilitates agreement will appear to the world as an extremely righteous man, but I know he is the vilest human being ever created.
My source of comfort, though, in all of this is that every Christian is a sinner too, though some more than others. That’s why Jesus Christ went to the Cross, to begin with. And not only that, my good works (the very few there are) cannot and do not save me, to begin with, but the love and mercy of God imparted to me through the final Sacrifice of Jesus Christ is what saves me and it will be that same love and mercy that will allow me to be raptured, should the Rapture occur in my lifetime.
I don’t know what the purpose of this dream was, other than, this subject is frequently on my mind both at the conscious and subconscious levels in addition to my imagination already being quite overactive…
