Dream from 1974 – America in Darkness
I stepped out, and everything was gone.
I decided to write about a dream I had in 1974.
In the dream, I found myself in an army barracks that was completely empty, except for one lit up peace sign on the wall.
All the soldiers were gone.
I was alone in the building.
The peace sign was the only tiny bit of light in a very dark building.
I stepped outside, and everything outside was black.
It was more than black of night.
Everything was empty.
It was like nothing existed outside.
There were no people anywhere outside.
There was no plant life.
There was no animals.
There were no other buildings.
There were no rocks.
There was no sound.
Everything was quiet.
I stood there alone, looking into the distance.
I could see some mountains in the distance, and a tiny bit of light just to show the mountains were there, but not enough to see anything else.
It was like everything around me was gone.
Nothing existed any more.
I kept thinking, where did everyone go?
I did not see “destruction.”
I saw NOTHING.
It was if everything in existence had been vaporized, and there was no trace of life or civilization anywhere.
End of dream
Talking to a friend about this dream after all these years, he made a point I had not thought of until now, 40 years later.
He said, the only building left was the one I was in.
I survived, when nothing else in my sight did.
God has promised to be a shelter for the righteous.
He is my hiding place, my rock, and my high tower.
This world will be destroyed.
No one will be a winner in any conflict.
People will die from disease, war, pestilence, or due to the wrath of God.
Only those sheltered by God will have a chance to survive.
Your relationship with the world is irrelevant.
Your relationship with God is all that matters.
Seek the Lord while he may still be found!
Before it is too late.
