I had another strange dream, yesterday morning, just before arising. Few dreams shake me up; THAT one did. I dreamed that I was in some city at night and entered what seemed to be a business of some kind. Once inside, though, it appeared to be a night-club, with things being done and said that you wouldn’t normally expect, and that I didn’t really need to experience. Feeling the pull of sin, I knew that I needed to leave, and did so. When I crossed the street, I found that my vehicle was no longer in the parking lot where I’d left it. Feeling the urgent need to leave the area, I first asked passers-by if they’d seen my vehicle. Then, I started asking if any were headed in the direction of my home and would they give me a lift. I received no answers to either question, only grins and laughter.
Knowing that I would need to walk home, I looked around me and realized that I was on the lower end of the main street in my own hometown. The buildings all were known to me, though many of them no longer exist in reality. Though it was night, they were lit up with flood-lights to where they seemed to nearly glow of their own accord. They were not complete, though. The insides and roofs were mostly missing and they reminded me of the bombed-out cities of Europe during and after World War II. A loneliness came over me which made me shudder—a loneliness and aloneness that I have never felt. Then, I awoke.
The feeling persisted into my waking moments. It wasn’t just a physical aloneness, but seemed to be a spiritual aloneness that penetrated my very soul. I was wondering if Satan was trying to shake my faith, or if God was trying to give me a message. I still wonder. I spent several minutes in prayer and was reminded that the Lord had spoken to me on at least two occasions, plus had answered many prayers. My salvation surely wasn’t the issue then. Was Satan trying to make me doubt that; was God trying to give me a message, or was Satan trying to offset a message that the Lord was trying to give me? I’m still not sure. However, I’ve noticed that I’ve been wondering a lot, since, if the coming “blood moon” and the first horseman of Revelation might be connected. Perhaps I’m just suffering from information overload, and perhaps not. I’ll be watching…….and praying. © 2014
