TITLE: My Dream
By Connie Husby


I sat in the corner trembling as a vision of the past flashed before me. I witnessed Eve biting a chunk out of the apple given to her from the serpent, and started screaming, ďNO, donít eat that fruit; itís a trick from Satan!Ē No words came out though; it was like I was in a trance. I tried to speak and my mouth moved but no audible words came out. What was going on, I wondered.

I stumbled on the rocks and scraped my knee as I climbed Mt. Sinai, and sat in awe of the burning bush. El Shaddai our Father God was speaking to Moses, and as he took off his sandals, I struggled to take my clumsy tennis shoes off too, for I knew it was holy ground. My foot slipped again and I made such a ruckus but Moses didnít hear me. It was like I was invisible and he didnít see me. His face glowed like an alien!

I actually fell asleep and woke up on the first deck of Noahís ark hearing the roar of Lions marching in two by two with other huge animals. Now this frightened me, but I was able to pet the lionís mane and they didnít even flinch. This was actually kind of cool being invisible, what was going on though, was this a dream I thought to myself. It sure felt real, but at this point I felt weirdÖall hot inside.

I was standing in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego; I was standing on the other side of the angel protecting these men. It was like a protective bubble was hovering over these devoted men of God, and the fire didnít even touch them.

I was startled when I heard loud thunderous beautiful singing coming from hundreds of angels, rejoicing in the brilliant lit up sky over a stable on a hillside in Bethlehem. They were flying everywhere singing Hosanna in the Highest and Peace on Earth. I followed the shepherds into the stable and behold there was a babe in a manger, and as the shepherds knelt by this precious newborn, I fell on my knees to worship Jesus Christ (Godís only son). I was awestruck at the love radiated in that tiny stable as Mary and Joseph stood in silence worshiping the KING.

When Jesus was older, he healed many people in various lands, I tried to tell the villagers I witnessed these miraculous healings that Jesus was performing; instead, nobody listened and called Jesus a blasphemer. How could they, didnít they see what Jesus had done? Didnít they read their bible? Who was I trying to kid, nobody heard me there. Wake up people, Jesus is your salvation, just wait until you see what he had to endure for our sakes, then, youíll believe him I thought.

Saturated in tears, emotionally spent and exhausted, I found myself clutching the very cross where Jesus was hanging and dying, I couldnít contain my emotions any longer, and screamed to Jesus ďdo these people not realize you are the Messiah? Itís going to be okay because you will rise again in three days and will rein in your Fatherís kingdom forever more (like Jesus didnít know this).Ē I canít bear the thought of your suffering and dying because of me, or the entire human race, so that we can be forgiven and receive eternal life, I certainly donít deserve any of this. ďPlease forgive me,Ē I sobbed! All of a sudden, warm blood dripping down onto me, Christ spoke as he opened his eyes and said, ďMy dear child, you have been forgiven, the excruciating pain I endureÖis for you.Ē He recognized me, and knew me by name. He also said, ďspread the gospel Connie, donít ever be ashamed of me, stand up for the truth and know Iím returning very soon for those who remain faithful.Ē His words seared my heart with truth, I was branded for life.

My dream ended and this verse came to me: Revelation 20:12 - And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne; and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of things which were written in the books, according to their works.

There will be much tribulation, but those who endure to the END, shall be saved.

It seems you had many dreams, or many different dreams in one single night - but you made it so real that one might think they were right there! A nice piece of writing, and very entertaining. Kept the interest of the reader throughout. A little shy of sticking to the Topic "End", but very well done!
