I recently had a dream that woke me in the middle of my sleep.
I was dreaming normally then all of a sudden it shifted into something completely different and unforgettable.
I saw what mainly looked like young adults and a couple of teens, it was all people groups, Asian, white, black, Indian, etc. (If I remember correctly it was just women.)
There was a large pool, it looked like a high school or college and the pool had been turned into a waterboarding station.
The stations were sectioned off and below each person, there was a piece of wood underneath their feet that had been built into the pool. It was at a 45 degree angle. I could only guess this was here because it would make the person feel more unstable and more like they were drowning.
The people in the pool were tied up and their head would be immersed for about 5 seconds and held up for breaths for about 2 seconds, and this would be repeated for what seemed like hours.
One thing I distinctly remember was a young woman with long blond hair, she had vomited, and the vomit was a pale light green color, but thick and foamy. (In my mind, I deduced that this was because the water was reaching the nasal passage and getting to the brain area.)
For some reason in the dream it was like I was watching a video of something that had already happened and there was a narrator. The narrator said the words "and many denied their faith and Jesus."
As I saw this, my natural mind, even during a dream, could only handle about 15 seconds of what felt like I was there, experiencing it.
I was shouting at the top of my lungs. "JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, NO JESUS!"
It was here I woke up.
I share this dream, not to scare you, (at least not of people, only God), but to remind you to keep you lamp ready, have a real relationship with God, and encourage you to understand, the *LORDSHIP* of Jesus Christ.
He is kind. The first time He came as a lamb, but the second time, He will come as a lion, and we must NEVER deny Him. It is our privilege, duty and great honor to suffer for our King. And the Holy Spirit will empower us during this time!
He is POWERFUL, ALL GLORIOUS, and as Paul said, "I am convinced that the present suffering is NOT WORTHY, to be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us."
HALLELUYAH! Come Lord Jesus, Come. Amen.
