Last night i had the oddest dream.I dreamed that I was in a building,but it wasnít like any building i had been in before,and I had a host that was walking me around inside this beautiful room that was adorned with gold tiles on the floor,silver doorhandles and the most beautiful pieces of art that i had ever seen,I was talking to micheal my host and he said to me donít ask any questions now iíll answer them as we go along,so nonchalantly I agreed.
So as we are walking we come to a room with a heavy door and we walk in,I am amazed because it is dark and gloomy and he was thinking and noticing people,hey thereís Harry,i went to school and smoked my first joint with,and thereís brenda the first girl i ever went all the way with,and tony and billy and tommy ,and isnít that brother bill my old youth minister? whatís he doing here? man i remember the first night w all went drinking together,it was cool tommy had his momís truck and we were with some others .. wait thereís kevin,he was the one that bought our first 6 pack,i try to call to them ,i see family members that i havenít seen in a long time and wanted so bad to talk to them but then my host tells me again itís no use to talk to them because they canít hear or see you,at that time my host tells me we need to move on.
Then we go to another room or building and i see a few poeople i recognize,like eric,timmy,leon,john,kevin and some others that i have seen and talked to once or twice,hey i have seen this woman,she was on the levee one day and i talked to her and she was depressed about losing her family,her husband beat her and she had just gotten out of the hospital and was getting ready to either cut her wrists or jump off the bridge,but i had interviened and told her that suicide wasnít the way to go and then i didnít see her again,man i hope she got her life straightened out,i said to myself,then before we left i recognized another person,brother ken,who was a minister i had talked to and helped me out and was a true friend,that would give you the shirt off his back and i thought why is he here? I had always looked up to him and thought he wasa man after Godís own heart. i had seen others that i had talked to once or twice in passing.
Then we left there and went to another room that was lit up beautifully,everyone was happy and cheerful,and i saw people i instatly recognized,like my mom,my aunts,my grandmothers that i havenít ever met,hey look there is my old pastor james varnum and his wife,brother kim,brother jerry,the one that baptized me when i first turned my life over to God and other people i havenít met before,and as i scan the room looking for others i know i start seeing more people come in and as i watch them enter i realize that they are people i had known from the first room,oh look there is the woman from the levee,i struggled because i wanted to speak to her real bad but i couldnít.
as we were leaving i asked micheal where exactly are we because it was like everything was so calm and peaceful,he explained that we were in the trial room of heaven, i was still perplexed and wondering I canít be dead,i still have all this work i have to do with my business,who is going to do that? who is going to look after the house i have in new york or the vacation house i have in the bahamas and all my other assets?micheal explained to me that i was still very much alive but God called you up here to let you know he still loved you and wanted to give you a glimpse into what could happen if you didnít get your life in order and get right with him.
micheal explained to me that all the people i saw in the various rooms where people from my past,the first room was where all the people i had associated with and didnít ever share Godís love or the amazing things that God could and would do with their lives should they want to,the second room was people i had associated with and had some spiritual talks with but not really enough and the third room was where the people that you had associated with while you were in church and given your life over to God,as you can tell he said,your life isnít over yet and you still have a lot of work to do back on earth.
