When I was a very young girl; I kept having this recurring dream…or nightmare. It was over and over again. At the time, I had never been to church. This was it:
People were very poor. There wasn’t much to eat. I had no family. The government was in control. It was a barbarian society; very frightening. It seems that everyone was being apprehended….we were taken as prisoners. They only wanted to know one thing:
“Would I take the mark of the beast.” I admit that I never saw it but if I said “No,” I would be put to death.
Everytime, I would ultimately say: “Yes.” After all, I was a kid…I did not want to die even though life around m,e was pure hell!
I dreamed this dream 100 times or more. At some point I did begin to go to church. Then, I began to feel guilty. I knew I wasn’t supposed to give in. But…I was really in training. You see, there would come many days when I would be tempted to do the unrightepus thing or deed…and I would say: “No.”
There would come a day when I would understand faith and the Book of Revelations….and I know that I would never take the mark of the beast; God has given me an out; to be “caught up: in the rapture before the days of tribulation.
YOU SEE THAT DREAM WAS NO COINCIDENCE…IT WASN’T TOO MUCH PIZZA OR ICE CREAM; IT WAS TRAINING FOR LATER UNDERSTANDING. THAT DREAM DREW ME TO SEARCH FOR THE ANSWER. I KEPT THINKING THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY…AND THERE WAS!!!
If you have no knowledge of the rapture…read your bible …do some research…don’t be “Left Behind.”
