What's New
A Dream of the Coming Darkness

By: Michael Edds

In the fall of 2004, I had a dream. It was so real and terrifying that I had to get up from my bed. The following is an account of the dream:

“I was visiting my birthplace, a small village in the beautiful Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia. I pulled my car off the road and parked in front of the old Methodist Church. I got out of the car to stretch my legs. The day was absolutely pristine and picture perfect. The sky was cloudless, the sun bright, and the air fresh and crystal clear. I was admiring the beautiful flowers growing in people’s yards. Many were busy working in their yards and gardens on such a gorgeous day. There was such peace and serenity. I turned and looked toward the southeast. I was astonished at what I saw. A cloud of complete blackness was suddenly approaching the town. It completely blotted out all light and scenery where it advanced and covered. It approached the village limits, which was a river southeast of the community. I made the comment, “Oh my God, the Darkness has come!” I sensed great evil and danger in it. I looked around to see if anyone else saw what I saw. To my amazement, people were oblivious to the approaching wall of darkness. They were still busy working in their yards and around their homes. I made the statement, “They do not realize what it will be like when the darkness comes. All of the sun light, beauty of nature and peace will disappear when the darkness moves in. Everything in their lives will suddenly and drastically change.”

I turned to get into my car to flee. All of a sudden, six motorcyclists drove out of the blackness and across the bridge into the town. I gasped, “The advance guard of the darkness has arrived!” These riders were on black motorcycles and dressed in black from head to toe. I jumped into my car as they approached. They slowed down as they reached my car and the leader yelled out, “Don’t you dare leave!” I locked my car doors as he approached and floored the gas pedal. My tires squealed as I fled. The motorcyclists pursued me and tried to force me off the road. I swerved into two and caused them to wreck. The rest pursued me for many miles and shot at me. After some distance, I approached some men working on the road and asked for help or to make a call for me to the police. I started to get out of the car but heard a voice from above warning me to not to get out of the car but to drive on. Finally, I realized that I was running out of gas and stopped to refuel. I pulled up to a gas station and started refueling. The dream ended with me praying for God’s protection while I refueled.

When I awoke, I was trembling with fear. I got up to settle myself.

The parts of the dream that stood out were:

1. The darkness suddenly came upon the land.

2. Before it came, all was serene, beautiful and peaceful.

3. No one saw it coming.

4. An advanced guard came into the community first on a reconnaissance mission.

5. The darkness then moved in and totally blotted out all light and beauty. People’s lives were drastically changed.

6. I fled for safety.

John 14:13 tells us that the Holy Spirit will tell us of things to come. He warns us in advance to prepare us for what is ahead. Hebrews 11:7 records, “…Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with Godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household….”

America is on the threshold of something cataclysmic that will radically change life, as we know it. A wall of darkness is about to suddenly fall upon this land. An advance guard of this darkness is already at work. People are living in a false sense of complacent security. I believe that the cup of iniquity is full in America and which will unleash divine judgment upon this nation. Something is about to shatter the hardness of this wicked nation’s heart. God has revealed to me that a Great Awakening is about to burst forth upon the scene to gather and prepare His holy remnant for the darkness that will follow. This Awakening will give America once last chance to repent. Historically, Awakenings have preceded calamity. May God’s people listen to the warning of the Holy Spirit and move with Godly fear to the saving of their households and neighborhoods. God desires for us to prepare an ark of safety to which people can flee for refuge when disaster comes. Let us listen and quickly move. Darkness is coming!

(May 03) 'HOLY TERROR' --- "Let the WORD of the Lord be true, and let every man be a liar," says the Lord. "Bring your heart before Me and let Me examine you. The time has come,... IT IS NOW! How will you be counted? You can not hide in the hiding places of the earth. You can only hide in the open,... in ME. --- My name shall be 'HOLY TERROR' for what I am bringing upon the earth. You can not hide anywhere except in ME. Let the truth stand, and let all things fall where they fall. Speak the truth, and hide in ME. My HOLY TERROR is coming."

(Nov 03) 'STORMS' --- In Vision,- I see clouds on every horizon. Not gray,... not even dark gray,... BLACK,... black as night without the moon and stars. Huge storms gathering on every continent, every island,... everywhere that man is found. Storms full of death and destruction. Lightning strikes in every direction. Thousands and thousands of lightning strikes,... their paths directed by the Lord. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Tornadoes, earthquakes and floods follow the storms. You are either to survive or not,... the Lord knows. They are HIS Storms... Judgment is in the wind.

(June 06) "Listen," says the Lord, "and I will tell you what is coming;... 'NIGHT,... black like never before,... is coming'." --- "I have warned, but My children have not listened,... few are ready. Few have dared to understand and believe. Few have sought Me in this last hour. The cry will be great,... the mourning immense." --- "Like sheep gone astray are My children. Like prodigals in the night,... always searching to fill their lust." --- "Cry out, My son,... lift your voice, though they will not listen. Cry out,... for your obedience will save you from the night which is coming."

(Aug 07) 'SHINE' --- "I have spoken through you. Few listened,... even fewer believed. All hell is about to break loose on the earth. Trust,... trust,... trust. I am your light and your salvation. I am the One who called you out of it,- out of the destruction. You have lived in pain to ready you for what is coming. They would not believe, and will be taken surprised,... but you will know it is Me. Walk now, upright and tall. Walk in My Spirit as I lead you to many. They will listen and know that I have taught you,... they will finally listen and know. I will render them unto Myself and into My camp. Fear not the darkness, though it will overwhelm... The light shines brightest in the darkness. You are My light,... the 'truth' that I have borne in you. Walk upright and tall..... Shine."
