Premonitions in Our Dreams...

Over the years I have had several premonitions... But then again, several of these dreams have given me glimpses of my future. I have seen Jesus twice in my dreams... Once he was kneeling and hovering over a church I used to attend as a child, but after thinking about it, he was praying over the valley just north of the church... 20 years later, an F5 tornado passed through the valley destroying a path over 1/2 mile wide and killing a saintly Great Grandmother... After thinking about it, the image I saw of Jesus praying was directly over her house. I didn't fully understand my dream until after the event had happened 20 years later, but a dream of my father,s death had warned me of the same tornado 7 years before the event actually happened.

Another time I saw Jesus descending in the clouds and covering the entire horizon. He was sitting with His palms facing skyward resting on His knees with His head slightly bowed. The image was a giant cloud, but I knew it was Jesus... I was standing in an open medow surrounded by trees.I was all alone except for a small stable that I looked in only to find it empty... The grass was brown and cropped low like it was in the winter months... As I ran toward Him, I looked frantically for someone to tell as my heart leaped with joy... But there was no one to be found... So I started running toward Jesus as fast as my legs would carry me !!! It gave me great hope that I would witness the second coming of Christ within my lifetime...

Another time I actually saw Heaven in one of my dreams... I was traveling along a Seashore on an old dirt road in an old dilapidated car... There was the brightest light I believe I have ever witnessed coming from the sea's horizon ! I was looking frantically for a way to cross over to the light when I saw a pier jutted out into the sea... I turned the car and drove out onto the pier as quickly as the car would travel, when suddenly the seas began to pound the pier with harsh waves and started tearing the pier apart !!! I never thought of stopping, I just pressed the gas pedal that much harder ! Suddenly the pier broke away from under me and I was expecting to fall to my death in the turbulent sea... Instead, the car began to float and carry me toward the light !!!

Do I believe in God and Jesus ? I most certainly do !!! I have been given a special gift of foresight that I know to be true because of events that have taken place after having these dreams... But usually the meaning of the dream is never clear until after the event has taken place. Being able to see these small glimpses into the future is a blessing because it allows me time to mentally prepare for the events that will certainly take place in my life, even if the information is very vague.

I actually dreamed that my youngest daughter had died and I woke up crying and in a cold sweat... This was when she was only three years old... I dreamed I walked into a bathroom to find my wife had gone to sleep in the tub, and our daughter was lieing lifeless, face down in the water... I pulled her from the water and cradled her in my arms, but her body was already cold and stiff and I knew there was no hope... I told my wife about the dream when she asked what was wrong because my crying had awakened her... She tried to comfort me and assure me nothing like that would ever happen... My wife worked as a paramedic at the time, and about two weeks after the dream, she answered a call where an infant had drowned in a bathtub from being left unattended. I will never forget how she cried when she got home, and we both agreed that the dream I had was a premonition...

Needless to say, our child Kathryn did die just before her eighth birthday... But it wasn't from drowning... She was killed in a car crash along with her Grandmother and Cousin on their way home from church... When the news reached me of the tragic event, I spent the entire day emotionless and wordless... The dream I had a few years earlier had already prepared me for the event and made it a little easier to deal with, even though I thought the dream's premonition had already passed. Emotionally speaking, I'm not sure if I could have handled the situation without being warned through a premonition...

I have had several other premonitions in my life... My oldest brother's death when I was only 4 years old... My father's death as well as my Baby Sister's death... All of these came in the form of a dream that really wasn't a dream... They were so lifelike, filled with smells and sounds that made them more than a dream, and always related directly to events that would effect the emotional state of my well being. I wish I had more control over the events I see in my dreams... But a glimpse of what the future holds in store for me has seemed to be enough to prepare me against emotional trauma in my life, and I am very thankful for that.

    For the most part, all my life I have been blessed with good neighbors... But what really defines a “Good Neighbor” in the eyes of anyone that has to live in a neighborhood? Quiet and mysterious households...

Can you describe your part if you get to Heaven.

I can only describe "My Part" of what will happen when I go to Heaven as what is promised me in the Bible through the teachings of Jesus Christ... "Whosoever believeth in Me shall not perish,but have everlasting life and dwell with Me in the house of the Lord forever and ever." It is a great comfort to know that a paradise waits for me... and this life of suffering I have to live on earth is only a transition point in the greater scheme of things...

Steppeno, Imagine meeting you here, it's quite amazing the gifts folks are given through walking with our Lord and faith, one could always question that I suppose. They might say a 4 year old could not possibly walk by faith. I would say that is the only way a four year old walks. I so remember being 4 and singing the songs of and to Jesus. I was probably more in tune knowing what I knew with out the baggage of life's ups and downs. I have seen people as they say good bye, shortly after their deaths. I've never to my knowledge seen a premonition. I have felt heavy feelings among a group as we tagged hand before setting out on a task, identifying it as one that would be bad and folks would be missing the next time around. Then seen it come to pass. We may never meet here but we will meet one day. That's always a comforting thought. Here's til then!

PS. I doubt little yellow squeekies will make it through, they'll melt in the fire that burns off the chaff.

Thanks 50 C. ... I knew someone of your "Caliber" would understand where I was coming from... Most folks don't seem to understand that we are only skipping along on stepping stones... They tend to think that this life is all there is... But I, ( In my Heart ) know there is something more...
